It was my very first album.
I’d listen to it lying in front of the record player/piece of furniture thingy in our living room, with the record sleeve that had all the words, and sing along. On repeat.
I love Stevie Nicks, still to this day. Her I don’t give a damn persona, her unique sense of style, and of course her gorgeous voice.
Great Kim, but what does this have to do with anything that you normally talk about?
I’ve been trying to get my brain off the craziness of our world by engaging in what makes me happy, like listening to Stevie Nicks, so she’s on my mind. Also, each of the items I have for you today, I can actually imagine her wearing. Either on stage or in her personal life. They all have that 70’s, slightly over the top feel.
Each week I shop and dig around the world wide web trying to find cool things to share with you. Sometimes my finds don’t quite fit the topic I’m writing about for that week, so I set it aside.
Just because something doesn’t fit in, doesn’t mean it’s not cool. So today I am sharing my stockpile of beautiful things with you. Think of it as an island of misfit fashion items.
My impractical, full body “yes” purchases are often the things I get the most use out of and the most compliments on. I always run a quick check against my closet to make sure I have a few things that will work with the impractical item before I make my purchase. But these items are no doubt the jewels in my wardrobe.
You can do the same. If you’ve been here for a while, you know the basics of building a wardrobe. Adding fun pieces like these I’m showing you today is advanced wardrobing. But I think you’re ready.
Take a look and see what you think.
This is a washable silk kimono robe from the sister run company Kim + Ono. They design each robe in San Francisco and have them screened onto the fabric. This one is a washable silk. There are so many colors and patterns to choose from, go check out the site.
Think back to an impractical purchase you’ve made. Go dig that thing out and see how you can incorporate it into the wardrobe basics you’ve been working on. Mix it with your everyday clothes to add a bit of flare.
I wanted to bring some joy to you today. Something fun and sparkly and really meaningless, but pretty and fun.
Next week we’ll get back to a more cohesive theme, or not. It’s 2020, anything can happen.
Please share this with a friend who may need some style love.

So fun! Thanks Kim!
You’re so welcome. Glad you enjoyed.
I really enjoyed this article Kim and it inspired me to put together an outfit with something "impractical" that I purchased a long time ago (I got a lot of compliments too!)
This makes me so happy!! You have no idea. Keep wearing those special pieces to regular events. It will make a difference in your overall style. Thanks for being here, I really appreciate it.
