#FrockSwapUK with George at Asda

 

How lucky are me and the other #FrockSwapUK girls? …umm very! The lovely people over at George at Asda have kindly let us pick two items each to style up then swap with each other. This is particularly fabulous as we are also currently under a #100dayshoppingban, and although we are over halfway through it this couldn’t have come at a better time quite frankly! I chose this amazing kimono and a colbalt blue shift dress (shift dress post to follow).

The kimono trend has been around for a while now , though not one I had considered wearing myself, but, as soon as I saw this on the George ┬ásite I feel in love and I’m not disappointed! It fits beautifully and hangs down over my bum at the back… always a bonus! I’m a total convert now and cannot wait to get this back from my #FrockSwapUK girlies so I can wear it more, I think it will be a really versatile piece in my wardrobe and just ads an ‘edge’ to plain old jeans and a vest. One of my favourite bloggers Gem Fatale wrote about kimonos last year here, and there are some great examples of how to wear it but I think for me jeans are more ‘age appropriate’ (not that it normally bothers me!) I also think it could work with a short smock dress… perhaps in a future post!

Donna has sent us all a gorgeous dress and a little surprise in the form of this pink bag, it’s very pretty and normally the sort of thing you might use for a wedding but I think it adds a great pop of colour to this outfit.

    As Erica would say, the accessories Gods aligned when the clutch bag met your kimono! Honestly, I would never have bought a kimono, but I’m really excited to receive it and *try* to style it! It’s simply perfect! xx

    I was inspired by this look when I went out Saturday night. I really didn’t know how to style to kimono I’ve had lying around for a while but black skinnies were perfect and I attribute the compliments I got to your inspiration. Thanks!

    I love your kimono. The colours are beautiful and it goes perfectly with that bag. I recently bought my first kimono from new look and I love it so much more than I thought I would.
