Beaux Style Diary: Kimono She Didn't

has my entire life lead up to this blog title? almost definitely.  

hiiiiii guys!!!

someone with two thumbs named moi was shopping in the zara home sale and found a kimono dressing robe in the mens section and now im never looking back. Met with a lukewarm (maybe a lukecold...?) "huh" by my hubby when I tried it on excitedly, I am over the moon by this little find. First of all, its literally my fave pasttime to find things for me in sections that arent for me. like mens, or babys or childs bc GENDER NEUTRAL and also AGE NEUTRAL amiriteguys. Second of all, i forgot what i was going to say.

So this kimono thing may totally not resonate for anyone other than moi and guess what thats ok bc that is what fashion is all about...making yourself happy. 

so here is one happy little camper who is wearing her mens kimono like a proud butterfly all over london. Obviously with her Baby Blondie

this coffee wasnt a prop but an actual part of my life!!! anyway shout out to mah levi wedgie straight fits...it took so long to find a pair that fit my body and when i saw them on other ppl and would be like omg i love your jeans, 90% of everyone was like oh theyre vintage im super edgy (theyre not vintage ok i can see the elastane) and i could not find any for the life of me. after i tried on every pair of levis in every vintage store in the world (literally from idaho to notting hill) but i found the right fit at the levis store on regent street. Blaamo found those wedgie high waisted cut jeans w stretch! WOOOOO!!
