My mother says this photo looks like I slapped a wig on my father and took a picture, hahaha.
Kimono-style top: spencer alexis (gift from Megan Mae)
Skirt: St. John Sport by Marie Gray (piked from Mom's closet)
Japanese fan bracelet: vintage (eBay)
Lightning boots: Naya (gift from Dad)
This combination was inspired by this outfit from the style blog In Colored Dreams. In fact, it's a style blogger collaboration extravaganza! The spencer alexis haori/kimono inspired jacket was a gift from Megan of Megan Mae Daily, and I found out about In Colored Dreams from Sara of Sideburns & Bangs.
The creator of In Colored Dreams is Nigerian American, and I thought I might create a Japanese American version of her outfit. I rifle through my mother's closet when I help her with laundry, and this skirt seemed perfect! A little outside my normal style, but I think I like it.
I last wore this jacket when I first got it in the mail. Are there any cultural cuts or prints that inspire you to make outfits?
