Well, I have kindly sorted out and added my kimono collection to this blog for you:


Pulled in dynamically from my flickr account 🙂

Easy as pie and my obsession laid out for all to see. You can see my favourite themes running though my collection, red, black and purple for most part!

I have tried to add more colours recently but still find I actually WEAR red with black or purple most often than not.

I have added more pink as typically I like purple and pink, as well as upping my accessories for a more multi-colour theme look. I think I decided this when one of the fashion shows we did, EVERY outfit was red/black or purple!!!

I like all colours, apart from beige. Beige is the devils colour. I will even take brown or grey (considered boring colours by myself), if it is paired with a brighter colour. I have a wonderful brown meisen kimono with bright aqua blue shapes.

Also don’t tell me it’s ‘sand’ and not beige. It’s beige, Lucifer is known by many names.
