i want: Vintage Kimonos from Shrimpton Couture

Shrimpton Couture has some lovely vintage Kimonos from the 1920s and 1930s up on the site now. Cheri helped a long time Kimono owner downsize the collection and some of those pieces are for sale. These two are my favourites.

1930s Deer & Rooster Silk Under Kimono is an absolute gem.  I love the clash of organic and geometric images.  The cute factor is always appreciated and I love the animals.

The 1920s Rare Hand Blocked Rayon Kimono reminds me of summer.  The colours really pop out from the white background.

  1. Oh, thanks for being around. I want to contribute to your blog in some way. The other day I saw a girl wearing a TORONTO POST MARK T-shirt. So cool. I asked her where she got it and surprise, surprise! … she bought it from Canada Post online store. So, just an idea, maybe you’ll love the t-shirt. I know I do. Here is the link where you can find it. If you don’t trust my link go to canadapost.ca and look for clothing. They also sell Ottawa/Vancouver, Montreal Post Mark T-shirts. You’ll be surprised. Oh yeah, the tshirt is made in Canada. I should say proudly made in Canada. http://www.canadapost.ca/shop/personal/clothing/ladies-t-shirt/ottawa-postmark-t-shirt-ladies/p-24918X.jsf?execution=e1s1 I would appreciate your advice on how to wear it. Thanks!!!!!!
