Updates to Helpful Hints

You may have noticed a few extra links in the sidebar to the right. I have added a page on sizing kimono and one on where to buy kimono. I hope you will find these helpful!

Obi Prize from Furicle - Kitsuke Photos

On Saturday, the obi I won from Furicle arrived. Part of the contest deal was that I had to take pictures wearing the obi for them. I paired it with this pine, pagoda, and bridge tsukesage.

Nicer obijime

After trying to coordinate my new obi last night, I found that I have very few formal obijime. So, I decided to see what I could find on Rakuten and scored these two for only ¥1,050! (As you can see by the tags, they were originally ¥15,750 - 93% off!)

I'm hoping to use the green one with the aforementioned obi, but sadly, it won't be here before my pictures are due to Furicle.

I Won an Obi!!

I'm not usually very lucky when it comes to contests, but this past week, I won an obi from Kimono Furicle's weekly giveaway! It's a beautiful kiku and momji obi:

I have to send them a photograph of me wearing it within one week since I received it today. I can't wait to coordinate with it! =D
