No kimonos for me. That would drive me crazy, big old sleeves, flopping around, lol.

Here is another one (also from GAP) but with sequins.  

This one reads bigger/boxier to me.


@lolakimono I like that one. I would wear it now.

I love the kimono look! Since I taught in Japan, I have a handmade one that was a gift and a yukata (summer kimono that's white with blue and black brush strokes). I like the velvet tops here, but not crazy about the other one. 

 

I also have these: 

 

A275776 - in coral

 

LOGO by Lori Goldstein Printed Chiffon Kimono with Lace Trim

 

and

 

A265833 - in green

 

Susan Graver Printed Sheer Chiffon Kimono

 

and

 

A265014 - in alabaster

 

Susan Graver Sheer Chiffon Long Sleeve Kimono

 

Love them all - they bring back good memories! Smiley Happy

For some of us, looking into the sleeves wouldn't show anything.  The goods are much lower. Woman Wink

 

By the way.... I'd wear that top in a NY minute!

Tommy Hilfiger at Macy's- not sure how I feel about the diamond quilting.

I'm not a fan. Maybe for a bathrobe but that is about it. Boxy, baggy, and shapeless clothes don't do a thing for me.

Mmmmm, No. The sleeves would constantly annoy me. Been there done that.
