I am well known for wearing layers ... I do love a funky, draped cardi or duster. So it's pretty natural for me to be drawn to the very popular boho-style kimonos.
Of course, I decided on something a little different ... I fell in love with the look of the vintage silk Haori (a short kimono-like jacket, per Wikipedia). I was leaning toward the one in the top picture. However, I kept thinking that it reminded me of a winter wonderland (Scenic prints are not really my style.).
I have always been fascinated with the mystical phoenix and finding the one depicted below sealed the deal.
Update: This close-up shows the amazing details.
