My side biz is building up and tomorrow I am off to MCM to run a stall dressing for money 🙂
I have been using the same kimono for dressing for a while now so I thought a refresh would be good.
It is fairly clear that as soon as one gets dressed in Furisode thats all that happens! Yukata Shmukata! So I have invested in some pretty and quite patterned furisode which don’t match MY taste but EVERYONE wants a really patterned look!
Yukata has its place so I have invested in some more modern fashionable yukata for dressing and workshops.
New obi too as my gold/blue obi is getting quite worn out and it really matches my favourite furisode so I want to save it now 🙂
Added to the collection we have two ‘kimono ageha’ furisode:
Gah…ghastly pink! But pink was missing from my dressing collection!
I shall get more of the ageha style kimono if MCM makes money! For now the ageha kimono will be kept for smaller events, and I need to get accessories to make up outfits inc modern obi. I have fancy enough obiage and obijime now in the dressing box.
I don’t buy kimono for me anymore, only working kimono with which I have to expand my comfort zone. Not everyone likes plain furisode with a pretty hem like me! Hopefully these kimono will give a really good range for people and I can mix up the selection at events so I am not using the same kimono each time!
