The last time I wore anything from American Eagle was probably in 8th grade. I randomly stopped by the store a few weeks ago for an assignment and ended up loving this kimono (which happened to be on sale). This goes to show that it's not about the label, but about the garment. I believe you can find a great piece in just about any store and turn it into your own style by mixing it with existing pieces in your wardrobe. Case in point, this really great kimono top. It's definitely a great layering piece for the office and lazy off duty days. Lesson of the day: Be open minded to new brands and revisit old brands that you thought you outgrew, it just might surprise you.
