Kimono House is THE place to go in New York if you need a Kimono or Yukata. I know you are asking yourself, "why would I need one of those?", but to be honest now that I have a yukata I ask myself "how is it that everyone doesn't own one of these?".
I use my yukata as a robe around the house, but over the Summer I did go to a few dinners and parties with it on. I was the most talked about person, in a good way. I'm also the "mannequin" in the picture above!
