Kimono

I came across this shop, when I was browsing the Grand Bazaar the other day.
Their production is only from cotton.
This Kimono can also be used as a blouse or dress maybe ?
The design is very authentic and very Turkish...
Don't you think?

This is beautiful, and I would love to have one to wear over a pair of white slacks. The embroidery trim is gorgeous.

And very comfortable!

Is it hand-embroidered, do you think?

Oya said...

Meg, no it is not. The hand-embroidered one is very expensive.

I like the color. I have seen people wearing these in this style but it was so long ago I forgot where.

I don't know anything about Turkish design but it's very nice! I think this kimono would fit you perfectly well, green with your dark hair...Did you buy something?

Oya said...

Alice, thank you.:) I haven't bought this time. Next month I will go back there and buy myself 3-4 pieces of them. Different styles and colours. I might as well post them too :)

That's a beautiful Spring color. And I love the white lace trimming around the edges.

Im not sure what a Turkish attire looks like but I do like the exquisite design!

wonderful, a fabulous colour. It may be traditional, but it wouldn't look out of place in a fashion shop - http://www.monsoon.co.uk/invt/92219807
