As for me,they always worked as swimsuit covers.When i put together the entire black look,i felt something was missing,tried some coloured chunky earrings but that wasn’t ‘it’,tried a metallic belt still couldn’t feel ‘it’ . For a moment i felt uninspired,i picked up this tribal Kimono and wore it so fast to cover up on my way to answer the door.There stood my friend ,all eyes glued on me.Her first words were “you didn’t tell me ,we were going somewhere”. Rolling my eyes and wondering what she was talking about,if only a bail of new clothes fell from the sky i’d be so happy. She kept on complementing me and pushed me in front of the mirror.I kinda liked how i looked….no!wait!! I loved how i looked,I found ‘it’…the kimono is what i had been looking for all along ,perfect match and timing.I found a new wash and wear piece in my closet.
