Today I took a brief kimono hime style break!
I wanted to do an outfit inspired by the mook, Kimono Hime which features kimono outfits with a fun combination of modern, vintage, western accessories and kimono.
I wore my modern cat check kimono with a lace collar layered on an embroidered red collar. I’m also wearing one of my grandmother’s vintage pins, a vintage green felt hat, lace gloves, my Baby the Stars Shine Bright parasol, a twin bunny obidome and a pink Showa eagle obi. I got this adorable cat check kimono the last time I was in Kyoto with my husband! I love how versatile it is. My kitsuke is out of practice and the Showa obi a little too short for me but oh well, this was fun!
I took some photos in front of my tansu. My husband got these for me for one of our wedding anniversaries.
This is my first time wearing one of my lace collars, too. I layered it with an embroidered red collar. I’ve had this lace collar sitting in my tansu for probably 5 years without wearing it! Oops!
Youta says hi!
