I typically pin a low cut top like this so it doesn’t accidentally fall open. But having a decorative bralette underneath just slightly peaking out is so fun. They’re so delicate and beautiful. I definitely like this option better than pinning the shirt because pinning the soft delicate material leaves a small mark, which is no good. Also, how awesome are these Gucci sandals? I can’t believe I haven’t photographed them sooner. They go with literally everything.

KIMONO

kimono-12
kimono-1 kimono-7 kimono-6 kimono-3Far from a traditional kimono, this one is, of course, a modern version. Traditional kimono are full length, T-shaped robes. I find kimono fascinating. There are various types of kimono, each one specific to the occasion. A kimono isn’t only a beautiful piece of cloth, it’s so much more than that. Kimono can symbolize social messages, marital status, age, and the level of formality of an occasion.

Dressing in a kimono also requires skill and is a process that requires aid since the outfit consists of 12 or more pieces that are secured in specific ways. Kimono are wrapped around the body with the left side over the right, always; except when dressing the deceased for burial. Then they are secured in place with a sash, also known as an obi. Some kimono are made with such exceptional skill and detail that they can easily cost upwards of $10,000.

KIMONO

Muy diferente de un kimono tradicional, éste es, por supuesto, una versión moderna. Kimono tradicionales son túnicas largas en forma de T. Los kimono me fascinan. Hay varios tipos de kimono, cada uno específico para la ocasión. Un kimono no sólo es una hermosa pieza de tela, es mucho más que eso. Kimono puede simbolizar mensajes sociales, el estado civil, la edad, y el nivel de formalidad de la ocasión.

Vestirse con un kimono también requiere experiencia y es un proceso que requiere ayuda. Un atuendo de kimono contiene 12 piezas o más que deben de ser ajustadas de manera específica. Kimono se deben de envolver alrededor del cuerpo con el lado izquierdo sobre el derecho, siempre; excepto cuando se viste al difunto para el entierro. El kimono luego esta asegurado con una faja, también conocido como un obi. Algunos kimono se hacen con tanto detalle y una habilidad tan excepcional  que pueden costar más de $ 10.000.
