Kimono Hime

Recently I recieved volume 9 of kimono Hime and I must say wow every single outfit was truly drool worthy! I loved all the cute ideas that it offered even though I can't read Japenese the pictures are well worth the price. I couldnt help but be inspired and I wanted to incorperate the style in my kistuke. So today I bought a lovely new hat and lace gloves both have poke odots. I must say i'm not 100% happy with the coordination and it reminds me of Lyuba-chan. I think that I may need to buy a kimono and obi that fits the accessories much better. I love mary janes they are so cute! My brother took my picture so thats why i'm in the middle of the street. And if it looks like he's took it at an odd height it was because he took it in his lifted truck.

Cute kimono idea

Lately I've been wanting to add more personal style kimono kitsuke. I have these super cute leather and canvas oxford lace up boots in brown that I want to wear with kimono.
These hair accessories are so cute! I want to buy two hair pins.

Also this scarf is so cute! I think it would look really good with this outfit.

This kimono is so adorable and its a bit on the short side but If I could get it I would wear it like a mini dress.

This is a closeup of the kimono.

This belt instead of obijime.

I havent found the obi I want to pair it with. But I'm thinking beige and simple.
I found this obi but it says it is for yukata.... not quite sure. Can you do other ties with this obi besides butterfly?

Um padding may not be for me

Well tonight I tried padding for the 1st time on my own and I dont like it. I think it does not flatter me. I put two towels around my waist folded in half both ends on my sides over lapping. I used two obitia. I think I did a better job on the obi-jime and obiage. Tell me what would work better; no padding or just padding on my lower back? Overall do you think my kistuke looks better? Also I don't care for this color combo.....

Tomboy kimono ideas

Okay, so lately I've been thinking what tomboy accessories would look good with women's kimono. I think I might have some ideas: oxford boots, suspenders, masculine hats, leather/canvas bags, knee socks, leather belts or obi-jime. I think that the patterns that would work best would be plaid, strips, and geometric shapes. images of outfits might come soon. Would love to hear thoughts on this though.

Best Birthday Ever!

So yesterday was my birthday and me and my friends set out to have an adventure at the Hakone Gardens and we got some amazing pictures. We had a blast and I can honestly say this was the best Birthday EVER! I know it's because I was finally able to spend time with my Best friends who I haven't seen in a very long time. I also got spoiled by Adam and I didn't expect him too but he's such a sweetie <3. I got this gorgeous present from Adam a very pretty Koi umbrella.
