Last weekend my friend Saemi invited us to a small Kimono fashion show. Kris and I are always looking for something different to do and decided to turn it into a date night. I dressed up, which is rare because we always walk everywhere, we then grabbed soba for dinner before heading to the show.
My outfit of the night included these jeans I absolutely love, they give the illusion I have long legs with the high waist and flared bottoms. They are also extremely comfortable. The tank I have on is a summer must have, same with my necklace I bought at Twill. The duster is from a Japanese boutique last year, but I will tag a similar one below.
I loved seeing all the elaborate kimonos and hair styles at the show. While I am in Japan I usually see more of the light weight summer kimonos, called a Yukata, because that is what the younger girls will wear to all the festivals.
How gorgeous are those? I wish I would have taken pictures of their shoes, because there is no way I could have ever walked in them! I need to remember to take my camera with me when I go places!! The women did an amazing job and Kris and I can add another thing to our “couldn’t experience this in the states” list.
Thanks for stopping by!
