Whenever I hear or say the word "kimono" I'm reminded of one of my favorite scenes in My Big Fat Greek Wedding when Toula's embarrassing dad is driving her and her friend to school: 

Gus: Now, gimme a word, any word, and I'll show you how the root of that word is Greek. Okay? How about arachnophobia? Arachna, that comes from the Greek word for spider, and phobia is a phobia, is mean fear. So, fear of spider, there you go.
Toula's friend replies: Okay, Mr. Portokalos. How about the word kimono?                       Gus: Kimono, kimono, kimono. Ha! Of course! Kimono is come from the Greek word himona, is mean winter. So, what do you wear in the wintertime to stay warm? A robe. You see: robe, kimono. There you go!

This conversation may seem like a divergence from a fashion post, but it actually makes perfect sense. This kimono, paired with my gold hand armor, radiates the ethereal aesthetic of a Greek Goddess. Ivory chiffon, airy draping, golden bracelets, Greek Goddess. There you go!

My kimono is made by Somedays Lovin, which is, to no surprise, yet another fabulous Auzzie brand. To brands of the Land Down Under -- you're killing me. Shop below my favorite Somedays Lovin pieces, if you dare pay the shipping fee. Sorry I'm not sorry.
