「着物で四日間」4 days of kimono

「着物で四日間」4 days of kimono

How are you doing? Hopefully not caught a cold?

To be honest, I was down with some kinda flu or heavy cold 2 weeks ago. And that is also one of the reasons my blog was a bit silent. Took me some time to recover but I am almost good now.

And once I was good I had to go out in kimono. Over the past weekend I was even out 4 days in a row in kimono. Usually I wear them once or twice per week but never really continuous.. This time I dressed myself every morning.

お元気してますか?風邪引いてない?

実は二週間前ほど、インフルエンザみたいな酷い風邪を引いてた。(泣)それで、ブログを書く力もなく、静かでした。今は元気ですが、ほんの少〜し咳は残ってる。
風邪は治ってからすぐにも着物出かけした。先週末あたりは四日間も続いて毎日着物をきた。普段は週に一回か二回くらい和服をきるけど、何日間も続いてきるのは初めてかも。気持ちよかった〜♡

And here is how that looked like:

さて、四日間の着物コーデを紹介:

DAY 2:

Basically it was a rainy day, I was a bit sleepy and not very motivated.
To say it frankly – looking back I hated this kimono outfit. The Haori doesn’t fit. I am always in trouble when it rains because I don’t own many Polyester kimono.

However fun thing was that I dressed my friend in the morning in a rock crossover coord.
I think she looked great and I did not. The corset is everything!

ポリエステルの着物は少ない私。雨の日には必ず困る私。(笑)
朝は眠くてテンション上がらなかったコーデ。写真を見るとやっぱりダメだったなー。このコーディネートや着付けでガッカリ。すみまへん。

楽しいことはでも友達に着付けする。コルセットベルトでロックな感じ。彼女はカッコよかったと思う。

DAY 3:

Having a meetup in the rain with Spree again to hunt for some gifts and chat over dinner.
I had a good hair day and my “almost” Nihongami turned out quite well and overall I felt good.

キンギョさんと会って、雨の中に子供用のお土産ショッピングと食事。また日本髪風のアレンジをしてみて、形的には今まで一番気に入りかもしれない。

DAY 4:

I had to get up super early, get dressed (speed kitsuke in 20 min) and went out for furisode kitsuke lessons.
Actually as a model this time but I learned a lot while watching and hearing the teachers tipps.

Here some pictures of the furisode I wore.

朝は早起きして、スピード着付けをしてから振り袖の着付け教室へ向かいました。今回はモデルとしての参加でしたが、それで先生のアドバイスなどを聞いて、たくさん勉強になった。

着付けて頂いた振り袖はこちら。

永井先生と澤先生♡ どうもありがとうございました。

Afterwards I wanted to rush off to my next appointment but had the honour to be dressed back into my own kimono by Nagai sensei!! Amazing experience and it still shows me that my kitsuke is by far still not perfect. I felt so good after she dressed me.

次のミーティングに行こうとしたら・・ 永井先生に私の着物を着付けて頂きました。とても素晴らしい経験でした。そして、まだ私の着付けはダメだな〜と思ったw 先生の着付けはきちんとしてとても気持ちよかった。はぁ〜♡

That day was a bit warm so I wore a wool hitoe and a half-width woven obi belt.

当日は暖かな日でウールの単衣と半幅帯で過ごした。
四日間の着物FUNで部屋がぐちゃぐちゃ(笑)

After 4 days of kimono fun, my room looked like this:

    I wish I could dress in kimono more often. I used to, and really miss it. I still have long ways to go. Unfortunately, no kitsuke schools in my neck of the woods. Makes me happy every time I have the chance to practice. Anyway, I love your posts and your unique style. Keep on the wonderful job!

      Thanks so much Ana, for your lovely comment!
      In which country are you located? Maybe if no schools you could maybe sit together with friends to learn and get more tipps from YouTube videos?
      I hope you find more time to wear kimono again.
      Best, Anji
