Wanna hear a secret? This kimono is really a bathrobe. I thrifted it (from the intimates section), and then when I got home I cut off the belt loops, ties, tags, and voila! I also like to wear it inside out so the silky side isn't showing. The pretty print remains visible, and I think it makes the garment look less like a bathrobe and more like a kimono/shawl. I get so. many. compliments. Seriously, every time I wear this out people are simply clamoring to tell me how much they love my outfit. It's so satisfying knowing that it only cost me a few dollars!
