A Kimono and Cowboy Boots


For our Friday night date night
Jeff and I headed inland 
to Old Town Orange.

I wanted to take out  my new kimono
 from Chateau Bel Age Boutique
in San Diego! 
Their kimonos are my newest favorite finds!
 These modern kimonos
even  come with slash pockets
and
of course plenty of drama!


This week I opted to juxtapose the kimono with my favorite cowboy boots!
I paired these with dark wash jeans
and
my favorite vintage lace YSL blouse!
 I made this blouse over 30 years ago
when my parents owned a fabric store.
I remember thinking at the time 
how expensive the lace was …
but boy have I ever gotten my monies worth over the years!
It's a staple in my wardrobe always
because of it's extreme versatility!






My vintage straw always works perfectly
for a date night clutch.







As always my friends


I wish you love and joy 
as you style your life

  1. Tamara, Look at you! Yes.. juxtapose applies to not only interior design but also what we wear. The boots work perfectly here and that lace is so pretty. Good for you for making that, and saving it for all these years! The clutch is darling and the straw is so fun with the overall look. I hope you enjoy your Sunday! xxleslie

  2. Your photography is stunning...you've chosen a fitting backdrop for your outfit! And your outfit! You find the very best kimonos, and wear them with panache! Having said that, it's your beautiful lace blouse that has me in awe. It's fabulous, and it's so nice to see a treasured article of clothing that you've sewn for yourself!

  9. Boots are like the saviors of our precious feet. They come to our help when we need the extra care and protection from the boots. It is required in the various activities like walking, hiking, running, mountaineering, biking and backpacking.I find this website for Western Best Work Boots.If you want you can visit this site.
