tsubaki time

Hello everyone, Happy New Year! Loooong time no nothing :) but I bring pics :) so be kind!

It's the first kitsuke this year, and I've been dying to wear my camellia tsukesage ever since i bought it from yamatoku, in 2007. Of all obi in the house, my large karakusa obi seemed the best option - after an afternoon of...well.. a lot of tests

i used again my mom's scarf as obiage because I have no green in the house, and a dusty pink obijime, matching the bokashi on my lining

Also, used a yellow kanzashi piece as netsuke, just because it kinda went along with the whole outfit.

More pics on my flickr account.


  1. I really like the combination of the light kimono with the black obi. It looks very nice.

  2. hehehe, thank you ROTA, it's not black though, it's dark blue with those huge karakusa in gold. I didn't really like this obi when I got it, since I didn't really know what to wear it with.. Turns out it actually coordinates well with most of my flowers.
