Christmas Furisode Ensemble!

Outfit planning here! So Christmas day at my sister is going to be a kimono day, and boxing day at my mums is going to be a rockabilly day.

As this is a kimono blog, I will just give you a picture of the rockabilly style outfit and not bother to explain! This is from (photo copyright Miss Fortune © 2007 and also I really recommend the Scarlett fever jumpers) and the large sizes fit a small size 14 perfectly. I am going to get a cherry dress in the new year if they don’t sell out depending on how much xmas money I get :).

So to the KIMONO! Christmas day is a special day and because we shall have the aunties from both sides and my sisters family also I thought I would go with my favourite decorative furisode.

$40 Furisode!

This furisode has enough splendour and detail to keep the aunts intrigued and its a wonderful purple. Now, my collection lacks accessories. Something I want to solve but sadly, not in the next 12 months. Obi, obijime and obiage are my weaknesses. However, I do have a plainish gold, plain silver and white obi’s so they can go with pretty much ANYTHING! Which is why I have them. As I want a richness I will be donning my new favourite gold obi that cost around $6!

It has very slight green, orange and purple tints so its perfect for this kimono. Now to the obiage and obijime. No pictures but I have chosen a lime green obiage, as the only other colours that would match that I have are purple and canary yellow. Both of which would dissipate and not pop out. So lime green it is and I have a matching obijime but also an orange one left out just incase it needs more on the day.

So now I am wondering about footwear. I was going to wear my heels but with all this snow? Zori or heels don’t really feel as thought they will survive (or I will survive) so it might have to be my purple and blue iron fist fug boots.

So in essence, that’s my outfit. I only have one furisode juban and it already has a shibori print dark purple haneri sewn in so that’s what I will wear 🙂

I hope there will more some more kimono worn for Christmas day, and if your reading and not, please re-consider!
