The kimono is the thing you can sort of see behind the butterfly wings
A few weeks ago, Francesca introduced me to sirena + the sea’s beautiful pieces, and ever since then they’ve been in constant rotation in my closet. I’m obsessed with the hand-sculpted bronze ring stack (I begged the guy at the ER to do everything he could to avoid cutting them off during Monday night’s little incident) and the porcelain and stoneware cuff, but I think the hand-dyed kimonos are my favorite of all.
I wasn’t sure that this would be the kind of piece that I’d actually wear – I mean, a kimono? – but it turns out that I wear mine constantly, anywhere and everywhere. Around the house, as a robe; out at night, as a light jacket; by the pool, as a bathing suit cover-up. I even wear it to school drop-off at least once or twice every week, layered over a lightweight dress or jeans and a tank top.
I took the robe’s belt with me to the Ren Faire last weekend
I even use the woven belt (made from reclaimed, recycled silk saris) that comes with the robe in a million different ways: as a belt with other outfits; wrapped around my neck loosely like a scarf; looped tightly around my neck like a choker, so that the tassels dangle down my back, and so on.
