Thrift Inspiration, In Oscar De La Renta

Kimonos are very much in trend at the moment and are such pretty versatile pieces to own.

Here are a couple of my favourite ones from Topshop, currently available to buy now:

Topshop, £55

Topshop, £35

I was fortunate to thrift my own kimono two summers ago, its a vintage Oscar De La Renta gown from the Salvation Army charity shop

They are a perfect cover for evening wear, lounging, swimwear or over a cami top and denim cut offs. Have you got a kimono gown already or be investing in one?

I would look more glamorous wearing one of those around the house than the crappy t-shirts I really wear!

I love kimonos, have several posts about them :) The most beautiful onese are from Winter Kate (Asos) or vintage from my fav ebay shop thriftwares.
I don't own a classical kimono jacket, but I love the knitted ones from All Saints! They have several cardigans for sale that are patterned and have a kimono cut (but with skinny sleeves).

love the trend so much, they where a big thing in the 70s and 80s, too!

love your kimono, the colours are nice and will suit you perfectly!

kind regards,

I must admit I'd spotted a kimono on the Dorothy Perkins website in their Studio 54 collection that I really liked. I really like your bargain and styling ideas, it will be perfect for summer so fingers crossed we get some sun! xx

Oh what a fabulous find! I was actually watching one on ebay and forgot to bid, so frustrating!! I think they look wonderful over jeans and heels for the evening.

I have a few kimonos and live them, but wish I was lucky enough to have an Oscar one too! Lush colours :)

Dear Sharon, I have loads of kaftans and dressing gowns but only one kimono.

The Top Shop one is lovely. And the Oscar - you are brilliant at hunting down a designer bargain! xx

SabinePsynopsis said...

What a catch! And in wonderful summer colours. I'd love to see how you wear it, Sharon.

Winnie said...

The first Topshop one is just lovely but your thrifted one is THE BEST! I love the pink, purple and green. Clashing colours at their best I would say :) It's such a gorgeous find Sharon!

Death By Shoe said...

What a great deal! I'm jealous!!! I love the other kimonos too, very similar.

I love your colorful kimono! The print is so pretty.

I'd love to own a kimono, but have yet to find one that looks good on me. Still looking, though ...

The Oscar de la Renta is head and shoulders above the high street versions. What a fantastic thrift!

I love kimonos, but sadly only have a black one. Now I am coveting your awesome ODLR one! xx
