Kimono Glam

Until now. I have never found anything with kimono sleeves that I liked on me. But, the color and print—a delicate mixture of blue, black, and white—on this dress caught my eye. My interest peaked when I spotted a red clearance tag on it. The deliciously soft jersey dress has a v-neck and empire waist, both adorned with a decorative design. I think I like it.
I wore this dress recently with black ankle strap sandals for a casual evening look.

    I love Max Studio dresses. I wish I could find them in discount stores here.

    The title did the justice! The beautiful pattern and the high waisted cut (for me, it’s very important in a Kimono dress) are simply fab! Yes, it is a great great Kimono dress and really shows off your stunning figure xxxxxxx

    That’s it! Next time I come north to visit the fam, you are showing me around to all the “spots”. Agreed? LOL!

    Love! So simple yet so fabulous!

    I love berto xxx’s avatar, most amusing! I love the kimono sleeve on you and your rockn’ my fav the ’empire line’. I think this is a winning shape!

    You look so pretty and fresh, really summer-ish.

    Yea, Kimono dresses are a hit or miss situation and you’re a hit!

    …lovely tatas :p!

    Thanks for including the detail, it made all the difference for me, because I could see that really sweet pattern!

    You look great, as usual. That neckline is fantastic on you.

    The dress is really cute, I saw that in dress in another color at TJMaxx and passed it up for some odd reason but it works for you

    Berto xxx: Thanks. I think I love your image more though 🙂

    Nywele: I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it on. I’ve tried to wear kimono styles before, and they just did not work out.

    Cheryl Lynn: Ha. Would you believe I was just going to a movie? I just wanted to wear the dress 🙂

    Capis: The 3 F’s huh! Thanks for coming by as always, Capis.

    Budget Chic: It is quite striking. Details like the ones on this dress are deal breakers for me.

    Nikki: I assume you’ve already tried your local Marshalls/TJ. So, it is unfortunate that you can’t find them there. My stores are overflowing with MS dresses. You might need to take a trip 🙂

    Times of Glory: Oooh thanks! It took a long time to find one that was actually flattering. Others were just….not.

    Oh that Girl. We’ve got a deal! You don’t even need to call first 🙂

    Always in Style: Thanks for coming by.

    Cheryl Lynn: I hope that is how it is written. And, yes she is!

    Anon: So true. It’s definitely a mod translation of the classic look.

    Imelda: Right! The image is amazing. Empire waists rock.

    Seeker: Thanks. The fluidity of the dress is so summery indeed.

    Secretista: And, I’ve had a whole lot of misses with kimono dresses. Now, that tata comment is a first for my flat chested self, so it must be the push-up Calvin Klein. Lol!

    Enc: That neckline is a winner in my book. I like that it can be made more conservative by layering a cami or tank underneath for more wearing opportunities.

    Suite B: Ooh. I wonder what other colors it came in. I, too, passed this dress over several times, but I am glad the red clearance tag was calling my name!

    Wow what a beautiful dress and the color looks great on you!
