High heels

I am not the type of girl which wear high heels because however I think the shoes often look great, they aren't really comfortable and I am not just to walk on this kind of shoes.
When I saw these, I fell in love and thought that I probably could walk on them but it is not that easy but still they look beautiful.

So here they are, my new oiran shoes:

Have a great weekend.

Iro Muji

It's been a while since I've done kitsuke, I guess the last time was in august when I went with some KDJ members to the floriade in Venlo. So last night it was time or rather I took the time to practice.
Last april I bought a greenisch/blueisch gray Iro Muji because the colour looked beautiful and I didn't have a silk Iro Muji. So this one was selected for my doll "Annie" with an  nagoya obi with beautifull doves. I really love obi with animals prints. The colour of the obi age/obi jime are orange which is a nice combination.
Here the results of this combination;

Visiting Rome

A few weeks ago my BF had to go to Rome for work, so I thought that it would be fun to come along because I never been to Rome. It's a beautiful city with a great amount of history which you can find every wear. So if you have the chance to visit this beautiful city, I can recommend it but we went in July so it was very c rowdy and hot, if you are planning to go do it in august or September because it will be less hotter and less tourist.
As a kimono lover I always look for kimono store when I visit a city so also in Rome and yes I found a store. Unfortunately it was very expensive but what a beauties they had.The store is called Antichi kimono.
I also visited another Japanese store but can't remember the name or the street.
Here are some pictures;

Japanese window

We have a window in our bedroom which is really loved by the kitticats. Every weekend they woke us up by hanging in the curtain in the hope they could sit by the window. So we came up with a solution in the hope the girls let us sleep just a little bit longer than 05.30 am in the weekend. It worked but it wasn't a pretty solution.
So we made this, it's not quite finished but I think you get the idea.

The normal situation

What do you think about our window now?

Have a great week.

Peacock feathers

Some times I try to keep away from ebay so I won't be seduced to buy something new.
As shown in the photo it's obvious that also this time I've failed but the kimono is very nice.
So maybe I will succeed next time:)
