As a stylist- I get bored of fashion constantly. That's why being able to wear 1 piece multiple ways is essential for me to stay interested. I often find myself styling my Kimonos this way when it's either too hot temperature wise or want to bare my arms to be a domestic goddess and wash dishes. So- here is how I style my Japan Kimono in Taupe as a strapless dress. It's quiet simple: I start by belting my Kimono at my waist- and then pull the sleeves off my shoulders and tie them into a floppy bow knot at my bust-line to create a flap over and cover my ta-ta's adequately. In these shots and video- I am simply wearing a basic cotton halter top bodysuit that when I pulled sleeves over my front and secured it by tying it- I simply tucked in the straps. You could certainly wear a strapless bra, bikini or bodysuit- but it's no big deal to just tuck away whatever you are wearing inside- as long its somewhat formfitting and strappy.
Keeping it real. Keeping it easy. Never contrived and always easy. My styling motto.
