Black Shibory

For the opening of an exhibition in The Van Gogh Museum I want to wear kimono well... if it's not too hot, if I am not too tired *blush* It's 30 C or almost 85 F Pfff Too hot for kimono. The smell of moist mothballs and old fabric made me sick today...
Still, I wanted to practice kimono wearing and find the best set. I wanted to wear my lilac iro tomesode but I need to rethink that because it is a bit much... a bit too formal though I just might go for it...
This black shibory is a bit too short for me and I must say seeing the pictures I am not sure It looks a bit too "serious or even too "old" for me. I thought I would look "tre chique" But am not sure. The crème maru obi is too hot (even though it is ro) the red hakata I like a lot better but might be too informal? *sigh* Also, it's only a bolt not an obi yet *blush* Need to sew and start soon... Still do not like sewing... I rather dream...

I have enjoyed viewing your blog. The kimono outfit combinations you choose are stunning. To improve your kimono dressing skills I would suggest new kimono undergarnments that are not so long in the sleeves. The underwear is not supposed to be visible except for the collar.
