Kimono Obsession

I've been crazy over kimonos ever since I forced my dad to buy me two from London's Topshop last Christmas.  I've collected so many more ever since! I can't help it.  I've been seeing more and more kimonos surfacing from brands like Asos and Zara.  Long kimonos, short kimonos and kimono dresses are so sexy!  

Celebs like Miley Cirus and Nicky Hilton have also been seen in Kimonos. Nicole Richie's clothing line Winter Kate features a collection of kimonos!  <3

This is the first inspiration board I've put together! ><'

Nicole Richie wears Winter Kate Opy Jacket $229
Left Kimono Jacket: Winter Kate $646
Premium Mustard Silk Corset Shorts: Topshop $100
Budoir lace boned-cup bra and briefs set: Elle Macpherson Intimates $130
Silk-georgette camisole: The Row Biggins $325
Harlow cutout wedge: Jeffrey Campbell $160
Gold plated burgundy leather & suede buckle cuff: House of Harlow $323.14
Saffron leather-trimmed suede shoulder bag: Marc Jacobs $1595

I'm so obsessed that I took one of my kimono jackets to a tailor market and made a replica in aqua blue... guilty as charged :)

Hello and welcome to Style Ceviche's blog.  This blog is a record of everything I stumble across thats beautiful and inspiring.

I am in love with this Scallop and Avocado Ceviche from el Willy's.  This is something I order every time i go there.   Pieces of raw scallops are delicately placed over a bed of creamy avocado mixture.  The ceviche is topped with crispy shallots and a combination of flowers; begonia, panishes and hibiscus.  Such a beautiful and delicious dish.   I love it when edible flower petals are added to food. Simply divine.

A recipe is available from el Willy's blog. I doubt that I can pull it off though!
