Kimonos are one of the newest fashion trends right now, and they're so cute! However, it can be pretty tricky and time consuming to try to find one with a price ticket that doesn't break your budget. In this DIY, you can learn how to make your very own kimono for around $10, plus there is no sewing machine involved!

Most people don't have endless money to be spending on big ticket items. Yet, at the same rate, it's becoming harder and harder to find cheap clothes that are still fashionable. Good news, ladies! I just found a gold mine!
The Lookbook Store has some of the cutest and most fashion-forward pieces out there. Granted, not every article of clothing they have to offer is at perfect pricing, but plenty of them are! Their selections contain a wide variety from winter to summer choices, as well as dresses and rompers to swimwear and crop tops.
I just purchased their Vintage Crochet Tank and the Floral Crop Sleeves Kimono in sky blue. I've seen this tank as well as look a likes all over instagram, tumblr, and similar sites, just like many of their products. I originally ordered it because it looks cute and summery, not to mention the killer price! Only $16! There's is also a similar tank on their site which is a buck cheaper. The kimono I purchased was because I've seen many kimonos and floral jackets being worn around the internet, and I really wanted one for myself. Most of them, however, are $30+. So, I was more than happy to find this one for $21! Sure, it doesn't have the best price tag, but it's good enough for me! There are several other kimonos on their site for similar prices. A sweet little added bonus is there was free shipping, plus I got 5% off (nothing major, but hey, I'll take it!).
When the fact that the Lookbook Store ships from China is taken into consideration, my items arrived in good time (and in perfect condition). I received my package 10 days after I placed the order, which was about a week sooner than they estimated. It can take over a month for products to arrive coming from China! So, I thought that was pretty great.
My clothes were in perfect condition when I got them, and they were just as I expected them to be. With the quality, prices, convenience, and shipping all taken into account, the Lookbook Store is definitely one of my favorites.
