Well I`ve decided to get back into wearing Kimono more often. I`ve been on a break with the lame excuse of most of my kimono are back in England but that is really not a good excuse because I live in Japan now and if I search there is an abundance of cheap and beautiful kimono to wear.
So for new year I decided to buy a new kimono and put together a new cord. I brought a new and obi online (I am very tall so recycle kimono sleeve length is a big problem), but then the only problem is I didn`t have the right ko-mono to go with it.
So I went to Tenshin bashi suji shopping street (天神橋筋 商店街）because I remember there being some cheap shops there.
And I found it, Amameya (天音屋） about half way up the street.
Too many nice cheap things!
So here are my buys.
The bag was 1000yen and I loved the vintage classy look, new and real leather (made in Paris according to the inside). There was a black croccodily one for the same price and would have had it but some obachan picked it up before I got to it!
Should be a good year! I am planning to go with my boyfriend to Kyoto for new years either tomorrow or the day after, he will wear kimono too. But he`s a bit flakey and not heard from him in a while! I expect he`s busy for new years family stuff but I will be a bit cross if he lets me down. Never mind I will go to Kyoto alone anyway, I quite enjoy going out by myself because I can do what I want!
