Trend Alert: Memoirs Of A Kimono Dress

An exotic distant cousin of the wrap dress, this comfy yet sassy dress is very popular these days. Usually found in colorful prints, this is a great dress that can transition from work day to night play with the help of a simple sweater or cardigan. It's always fun to mix it up with an Asian flair. Here are my designer and non-designer picks:

Single Dress Printed Kimono Dress, $260, find it here.

dELiAs Green Trim Kimono Dress, $44.50, find it here.

More, more, more, so

Geren Ford Kimono Dress, $385, find it here.

Bisou Biosu® Printed Kimono Dress, $69.99-$79.99, find it here.

Mara Hoffman Kimono Dress with Belt, $385, find it here.

Laundry by Shelli Segal Space-Dyed Knit Dress, $245, find it here.

Whiplash and Nicachica, I also have the same problem...the empire waist and any thing that just hangs for the shoulders or is "boxy" makes me look "pregers" or just plain the kimono thing is really cute, but not for me or anything else that wraps for that matter.

I just got the Glide Stripe Kimono Dress, in Laquer Red, at Bebe last night. The low v-neck and stripe down the center are very slimming. It's on sale for $98 now too!

Very often, kimono dresses aren't made for ladies with big boobages such as myself. I either pop obscenely out of the top, or the band around the empire waist bisects my boobs horizontally, so that the bottom is below the band. Sigh...

The only thing that bugs me about kimono dresses is that they're all (that I've seen) crossed wrong. It's supposed to be left over right, not right over left. :( Other than that, I love them, even if I'm way to fat to pull them off.
