STREET GEISHA

(everything thrifted from head to toe except shoes)
vintage floral dots kimono dress, vintage DIY destroyed slasher shorties, H&M fringe studded bucket bag, Gee Wa Wa boots from Shop Spanish Moss, vintage oversized cross necklace, white round sunnies, vintage bangles/watch and random rings


I've been obsessing over kimonos for quite sometime but they just ain't in Mama's budget! They can cost anywhere from $150 to like $300, DAMN GINA!! 

So you know I had to DIY that shit!! I found this AWESOME caftan dress while moving in my stash of forget me nots.  I remember saying "When did I buy this and why the fuck haven't I worn this yet??" 
I tried it on asap and it ate me up. I looked like I was on my way to a 70s graduation and all I was missing was the cap, hehe!!

So I grabbed my DIY kit, SCISSORS, and cut that bitch straight down the middle!! Added slasher shorties, Gee Wa Wa's, bun and look Ma I'm a geisha, lol!!

I'm extremely busy, like everyday it's something new and I LOVE IT!! I've always been a work horse and a show pony...yeah you can do both!! But now that I'm taking my blog more seriously I been getting opportunities left and right.
My son even hugged me and told me he's sooooo proud of me and that he loves my blog! Awwwwww kids say the funniest things! So I'm going to keep pushing and opening doors.
If you want to work with me professionally, please email me at vintagevirginblog@gmail.com.
*CRINGE* Maybe I'll take on a sponsor or two...it depends I'm VERY picky!!

Thanks for everything and I love you allllllll!

LOVE the kimono dress, I've been lusting after one of those...but I think I'll end up looking like I'm wearing my sleeping gown out! Love the way you styled this one though, looks stunning as usual. :)

Your sons comment must have melted your heart. You once again look amazing. Your mind is incredible, never would of thought of cutting a dress into a kimono but it very clearly works!

Bashful Poppy said...

another great look, i can understand your kimono obsession, i had a red one when i was younger and just bought a bright blue one in asia. never would have thought of making one to wear out though. so glad you've introduced me to this idea!

Hannah said...
