Getting close. Only 15 days left of 2011. Time to be strict with my kimono resolutions!
1. No more kimono – nada, nothing, nichts, niets…..ZERO actual kimono to be purchased in 2012.
2. No more OBI either….
3. 1 x long kimono coat to be aquired
4. 3 x very fancy and expensive obiage/obijime sets to be had. When I say expensive we are looking at a £100 budget each. One red/white, one red/black and one a damn fancy colour. I will checkout yahoo auctions before I go for brand new of course.
5. Synthetic Mans kimono set.
and that’s it – for the whole of 2012. I am directing money at things I have been hankering for over past 18 months, as well as a summer trip volunteering in Japan which will put me back £1200 probably.
My husband and I are saving for a really nice tourist trip to Japan for 10 days (Tokyo and Kyoto) so I need to be very VERY good with my money.
Also my need to further myself with the Japanese language will also trump kimono purchases.
Resolution No.6 – A dreaded resolution that involves clearing out and selling off kimono I know I will not wear. My style is starting to define itself a lot more and previous purchases are not in tune…..so I will part ways with them!
