Traveling kimono round 2

So you know when your having one of those weeks, stressed out, depressed etc etc, and something special happens and it all brightens up ^^
well the traveling kimonos arrival did just that for me.
I got the chance too wear it twice between work, and i planned to again today, but it's ben pouring down rain, so there was really no point after work today (i wanted some shots with the wattle, anyway, enjoy.

Expansion of posting

So at them moment i barely use my blog since i post my kimono shots on da, flickr, and ig, 1 more seems a bit much.

I'm thinking i might add in my fashion (so pics of my daily wear out of kimono)
Sowing projects i'm working on and desighns i would love to make, i'll still post kimono, but lets make this a busy fun blog. I'll make an effort to post weekly.
It's in my diary now!

See you soon, lets see how this works out :D

New layout, and long time no post ^^

Ahh it's been a while since i blogged, I've been busy handing in resumes, sowing whatever i can get my hands on drawing designs, yadda yadda yadda,  pretty much everything i wanted to do all last year but couldn't justify ^^
I've promised a Friend of mine a Lolita shoot, so that's on the table at the moment, but I'll leave  you with my most recent creation.

Do you like the new layout?? The background is a sketch of a lollita skirt i want to make ^^

I've loved pinstripes for a long time, and simple outfits with something small to bling them up. While I'm not good at doing that with my normal clothes, i seem to be getting the hang of it in kitsuke.

For this i chose a gold earring that has a chain tassel and a piece that clips around the top of your lobe (can't remember what it's called) unfortunately they don't often sell them in pairs, but i the same one the other day on sale and bought it so i had a pair ^^

The tateya musubi came out really nicely and crisp, so I'm quite happy with that ^^ This obi is truly one of my faves.

The kimono itself is unlined. I rarely line mine,
1: because I have trouble getting it to line up nicely
2: It's expensive ( i could be making more XP)
and last but not least,
3: I'm a snow Bunnie through and through, Australia being warmer most of the year, i prefer to not have the extra warmth so i can make more use out of my geometric kimono ^^

I think if when i get a job they'll let me, this would be a great kimono to wear during multicultural work. Business like, but definitely quirky and kimono.

If i ever made my own kimono brand, you'd probably see a lot of stuff like this,
I'd be curious to hear your thoughts.

Japanese speaking exam

So, The Tuesday just gone, i had my  Jap speaking exam for my final year 12 exams.
It was hard going in since i was straight after lunch, and had to wait a bit outside for them to ask me to come in.  By that point i just wanted to get in their and get on with ^^
Surprisingly, i think i did well. Until your tested in a proper situation, you don't realise how much you've learnt.

Today, my Japanese sensei video my sister and i asking us for tips and about our experience so she could she the next years year 12 and so on, to help with their exam. I think it's a very good idea.
We may upload it to YouTube, if i do, I'll be sure to post a link.

I had planned on wearing kimono, but i decided after working out it would be a 1 hour drive, plus i would be hanging around for around 2 hours, on a hot Australian spring day waiting to go in, that it may not be my best plan
So on that, i didn't wear kimono, but i took lots of photos ^^
The examiners seemed impressed XP

My school is having a uniform free day tomorrow. I decided since it was my last day of formal school i would have a bit of fun.
I'm going to wear my year 6 primary school tshirt. I laughed so hard when i put it on tonight and i still fit, the only change, is I'm no longer washboard flat XD (quite the opposite actually)

This Friday is my Muck up day/ celebration day, whatever you wish to call it. I have a fantastic outfit planned for it, and I'm looking forward to sharing it.

Hope your all well.

Art exhibition

Yesterday, i spent most of my free periods helping  set up my schools year 12 art exhibition, I helped move across and display 90% of the photography works. Job well done XD
On the other hand, my right hand now has six large paper cuts, and my nails arn't looking much better XD

Tonight we made the opening and i decided to wear kimono.
I chose a very special obi as it was one i made especially for my photography class from a photo of a kookaburra transferred onto calico.
Me at the exhibition, please excuse the blurring, our VCE artworks shouldn't be online till December.

Just a shot so you can see the back ^^
What do you think???
