Happy New Year 2015!

Happy 2015, everyone!

In other news, I now have a facebook, twitter, and tumblr! Come hang out with me there if you are so inclined.


My New Year’s resolution is to start and attend more meetups in my area. In light of that goal, I am now the head of the Kimono de Jack Washington DC/Baltimore, MD Divison. Kimono de Jack is an international group which stages kimono meetups, where kimono lovers “jack” a place by wearing kimono to an event, etc. It was founded in 2010 in Japan, and only 11 people showed up. Now, it is an international group with thousands of members.

What are your 2015 resolutions?

For this outfit, I wanted to wear something a little more traditional, since my hair is so bold right now. 🙂 To celebrate the New Year, I wore a lovely shusu silk with an auspicious motif of takara-bune (宝船, Treasure Ship of the Seven Lucky Gods). It is a “pente” obi, which means that the design has been hand-painted, rather than embroidered, dyed or woven into the fabric. It was common during and after WWII as it was cheaper to make.




You can see how my hair has been stepped here. I really love this hairstyle right now:

I have a bobble-head of myself now from work, and it’s super fun and silly to play with. 😛


This is the wall art currently above my bed:


Have a Happy New Year, everyone!
