Kimono cardigan by H&M Conscious Collection; Skirt by Urban Outfitters
I am a sucker for anything kimono-ish. I grew up loving everything Japanese. Manga, anime, japanese songs, japanese dorama, geishas, samurai warriors, Meiji, Shogun, etc. I had the longest crush on an actor called Odagiri Joe from an old Japanese drama called “Satorare“. I even took Japanese summer classes (speaking & writing), and graduated with 96%! Ahh I was such a fan then…
Imagine my delight when I was combing through the post-Christmas sales in Newcastle and found this gorgeous H&M kimono cardigan for…only £5 (originally £14.99)! Although the size is an EUR XS/S, the sleeves looked slightly bigger on me but then I realised..kimonos are like that anyway!
Also, the cardigan is from H&M’s Conscious Collection, which means this piece of clothing was made from recycled pieces. That’s making the world a little bit greener for us.
What’s my next plan? To hop onto a plane with one of my best friends (we made a pact) to Japan!
