Every Season is Kimono Season

Be bold...

Aren't these colors magnificent? You already know I love every color in the rainbow, but seriously... The details and gorgeousness of my new American Gypsy Vintage kimono are out of this world! I literally feel like I am wearing a work of art whenever I throw it on. Of course, it is my new favorite clothing piece and makes me want to buy so many MORE! American Gypsy Vintage is a new vintage store founded by the utmost beautiful blogger babe, Nicole Alyse. If you have never heard of her, seriously stop what you are doing and just click on her name in my previous sentence. I stumbled upon Nicole Alyse years ago, back in the MySpace days, like so many others did. It may sound outlandish, but she was my fashion catalyst in so many ways that I can barely even begin to describe. Nicole simply exudes creative inspiration and is a living fashion queen in her own right. Not to mention one hell of a photographer. Bow down!


My outfit here is not too complex, but definitely a bit more risque for me. If there is one thing I cannot stress enough, it is that none of us are this young forever. I hate to sound cliche, but if you got it, flaunt it! Beauty comes from the inside, and none of us will ever be younger than we are at this very moment. I wont be able to dress like this forever. When your mind is confident, its easier to be bold! My turtle neck crop top and high-waist shorts are both from Forever 21. The shorts I found a few years ago and the top I bought this year. They are the two most versatile pieces, and can be paired with a million different things. 

Hair game...

So, my new locks are pretty bold! I am dying for a cut, but I must admit I am hesitating...I may have a bit of a mental attachment to my mane! However, no mental attachment what-so-ever to the color of it. How about this swirly, pink and orange deal? I wanted it to look like a painting, and it only took twice to get it the way I wanted it! I already need to touch it up, but I love watching the colors change as the dye washes out. I also threw on my adorable ZeroUV shades here. I wear them so much, they are the perfect statement sunnies. Their store has the cutest and most affordable trendy eye wear! I cannot wait to snag a few other pairs for myself.

Dazey jewels...

As far as the jewelry I wore in this look, my bracelets and rings are all from different places. My LOVELY "D" earrings however, were gifted by my girl Julia Weber from her line DAZEY. The same place I snatched up my velvet choker in my last post, and aren't they the cutest? I love the little daisy flower detail, daisies were also one of my mothers favorite flowers.

Stay beautiful dolls!

XOXO - Ravyn Alyx
