I wonder what would have been to live in a time where your Kimono was something essential. Since I arrived to Japan, I knew I wanted to do something: to feel dressed like history hadn’t come to these times. I searched all over Kyoto for white cotton socks, these perfect wooden kimono shoes, and finally, for a silk Kimono. I’m glad that beginning this year, I came to Japan and discovered this hidden and diferent world. 
I’m also wearing an Yves Saint Laurent vintage belt, that Yves actually made 
inspired by Japanese culture for his collection ,
 and I love the fact that it’s so well done. 
I even discovered it was probably used in the runway (it has written instructions for wearing it and it’s tiny size). So it seems that now with this place and this garments fits perfectly. I had a big coffee and patience to choose from the photos,but I couldn’t just post 3 pictures this time, because I won’t be everyday in Kyoto wearing my Kimono and feeling like a Geisha. I hope you like it!

    You look beautiful…may I ask, Denni, where you bought the kimono? I'm going to Kyoto in a few months and I'd like to know where I can buy a simple beautiful kimono like this one.

    I'm so glad you didn't pick just three photos, I would have been begging for more, more, more! How long did it take to get ready? From the stunning hair and makeup, right down to the toe socks and wooden shoes, you've put a lot of effort into your look. Wow, the YSL obi looks incredible and it certainly has a bit of modern history attached to it:). More please!! xo

    The photos are beautiful.

    I think the kimino is more special with the fact that you combined a YSL vintage belt inspired by Japanese culture.

    Sometimes I wished that I bought myself a kimino when I was in Japan.

    I am in Japan as well. I've been here for a month..but I leave tomorrow! Wasn't that temple amazing. I think Kyoto is by far the most cultural city of all. Plus wearing a kimono in Geisha land is rather amazing. It looks sooo beautiful.

    Love,

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Thanks!

    The heart of your writing whilst sounding reasonable at first, did not work well with me personally after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you were able to make me a believer but just for a very short while. I still have a problem with your jumps in logic and one might do well to fill in those breaks. If you can accomplish that, I could undoubtedly end up being fascinated.
