I adore this Alexander McQueen kimono that I found while perusing!  I absolutely love the Japanese and Asian cultures so when I find a piece that pays homage to these cultures, I just have to have it!  Alexander McQueen has outdone itself with the abstract floral print kimono both in its practicality and luxury.

I chose the Jimmy Choo pump because I wanted a pop of color at the feet.  Of course, you could wear black as well, but I love these Jimmy Choo Hoops Lace-Up Leather Pump because they are almost as interesting as the kimono itself.  I created this outfit to be a conversation piece and no boring pump was going to do!

I love both the Givenchy and Manolo Blahnik clutch evening bags.  Either one would go beautifully with the kimono because neither one would overshadow it.

This outfit is perfect for the symphony.  It’s also perfect for an upscale party to benefit the symphony, ballet, or a charity.  You would certainly be the talk of the party in this ensemble.  The number of occasions for this outfit are limitless as it is so stylish, you’ll want to wear it everywhere!

When putting pieces together, think about where you want them to standout. Like in the outfit above, the kimono and shoes take center stage while the clutches (either one) take a back seat.  You may find a more neutral outfit where you want to showcase your bag instead.  Other outfits demand that your shoes be on display.  Take each piece separately and determine its place within in the outfit.  That is the best way to not overdo it.
