Los Angeles based designer Melissa Velia once again proves that there are many ways to reinvent the kimono. Her version includes wispy florals with bouncy pom-pom trim. The day I wore it was perfect, as the weather was rather bland. I decided to take advantage of the warm colors to sort of brighten up my outfit for an event I was attending. I paired it with my flared jeans and belted it at the waist for added color and a more refined silhouette.
