Turning Japanese, I Think I'm Turning Japanese

Thursday, June 22, 2006

I had meant to post a fun picture of the vintage kimono I bought a few weekends ago (only $6!) from my favorite secret vintage kimono store here in Singapore, but that was before last Thursday's kimono-finding frenzy. And so, here are pictures of them all. I need to get them cleaned, but then I'm definitely going to start wearing the long ones around town coat-style (above). I really think they're going to spruce up my basic jeans-and-tee ensembles, don't you?

I also found this short jacket-style one, which I love:

Some of them, I'm hoping to eventually convert into cute wrap dresses (but first, I have to advance to the actual sewing part of sewing class):

The bold, 70s-style prints are my favorites:

This classic one is actually a small child's-sized kimono, which I'm going to hang on the wall:

Oh these are truly yummy! You inspire me to dig mine out and get something done to them. Now that it has cooled down a little here in Tokyo a kimono wrap dress would do just the trick.
Your finds are gorgeous (and cheap!!)
