Aloha 2014! By this point you're probably well aware that I enjoy lounging around in vintage unmentionables. Combine this with a few bottles of pops, some twinkling candles and endless bouquets of roses and I'm in seventh heaven. Maybe add a kebab for good measure... although it doesn't feature in this post, rest assured there were one or two consumed throughout the evening.

I've been on the hunt for the perfect vintage kimono for several years now, my lovely mother has always had such an enviable collection and I figured it was high time to start my own. Shortly after this revelation I stumbled into a local Vinnie's, and I couldn't believe my luck when I spied this exquisite hand painted silk gem for a mere nine clams. Just when I thought vintage was dead...
