Searching High & Low

Kimono Topshop, Top Topshop, Pleather Trousers H&M, Fur Collar H&M, Boots Dune
I am on the hunt for kimonos but they are like gold dust. Their have been some beautiful ones on ebay but I have had no luck winning them. I found this in Topshop check it out for yourselves here last week and it is the nearest thing to a kimono I have seen on the High Street so I snapped it up. I have a feeling kimonos are going to be a hot item for S/S11.
I asked you guys to ask me a question here I am going to answer Purdey from Kittenish Behaviour and Jade from OMG Jade's Blog's question they wanted to know how I style my outfits the night before or quickly in the morning?

I tend to have a little think before I go to bed about what I am going to wear as I only have a small amount of time in the morning to get dressed. It is easy for work as I have a very beautiful working wardrobe so I just add accessories. For special nights out and special occasions I plan well ahead for instance my outfit for my sisters wedding was planned about about 9 months in advance.
Purdey also asked me what my dream job is?
I have a few dream jobs I would love to be a stylist, a visual merchandiser or my biggest dream to own my own vintage boutique.

  1. gorgeous giselle and you legs in those leather trouserss look hot!! Kimonos are amazing- definately will be seeing more of them in the future- ebay prices and etsy are insane sadly.

  8. Topshop have been doing some lovely kimonos lately and your kimono is a great example - I adore the black detail :)

    I hope your predictions for S/S 2011 come true - I love kimonos and bed jackets but like you say, they're limited in the shops. I can never really find any :( There were a few on TOPSHOP.COM a while back but they sold out sooo quickly.

    I have some pleather trousers too but from Urban Outfitters. I haven't worn them much because I've been a little unsure of how to style them. But thanks to your outfit post, you've provided me with some great ideas. Thank you x x

  19. So fab! I always have troubles figuring out how to dress appropriately for work but at the same time, love what I'm wearing and add my own personal touch to it. My goal everytime I've been shopping lately is to find things to wear for work, it's more difficult than it sounds! I'm so limited living in this city as well, boo.

  30. kimono's are on my wishlit tooo!!! I got one of the 1st topshop ones on ebay for £5 kinda like yours. I think for some hard to find things search like topshop shrug or cardi instead of more detailed, cz people who dont have clue about them just name them, simple things.
