Queens Day

On queensday the store was open and I wore kimono. I choose my black wool with bright blue interwoven pattern. Wool seemed save because the weather forecasts where rainy and cold. The obi is silk soft green with silver but not a good one so ok for working and danger of rain. Against the rules I decided for a black obi jime and obi age, just because they looked nice. My nagajuban is a bright red antique one with black shibory stripes and rinzu cranes, really fun!
My colleague is wearing a jacket and a very nice man from Japan translated the kanji for us. It says: Oishi Kurano-suke the master of the 47 samurai. And I thought it was a merchants coat! I think we looked fun ^_^ and we had a lot of fun too. Many Japanese tourists wanted to take our pictures and some even told me my kimono dress(ing) was very nice *blush*

I think you look really pretty in the blue kimono :) Your kitsuke is very nice.

I wish you could wear bright red lipstick with matching obijime and hanao . I think that would have looked really cute :) I think you look pretty with red lipstick :)

eee Thank you Axia ^_^
That's a good idea to go for red... first I need geta with red straps, all the other red things I have, but I must admit... I am scared for red lipstick, but I think I will go try this color combination this weekend.
And what do you think about a red obi? Would that work? Maybe with yellow accessories? Hum I need to experiment more, wish I had more time... *sigh*

Oh! Yellow would be really nice with that nice blue, too! Yellow, red and that blue would look very cute-country-traditional :)
