Ginza Kimonos

Friday, February 27, 2015

The other day while walking around Ginza, I noticed the most elegant kimono shop around the corner from my hotel. It must have been my lucky day because the store was full of stunning women who were attending an event with a local designer. The store, Ginza Motoji, specializes in traditional kimonos with a focus on high fashion and design. I loved watching how the store's staff interacted with their clientele. This woman had just purchased a beautiful pink coat. Upon her exit from the store, a young man ran after her to fix a small thread that was hanging from the sleeve. It's been fascinating to see how Japanese women choose and accessorize their kimonos for everyday wear. I can't wait to see what I find when I hit the streets tomorrow!

Creative Accessorizing

Tuesday, February 3, 2015

When it comes to dressing for colder weather many people throw on their dark puffy jackets and call it a day. Debra Rapoport is the very opposite. She brings color and texture into her outfits no matter what the season. Debra made all of her accessories from recycled materials, paper towel, and toilet paper rolls.There is always a creative way to bring a little bit of color into your winter wardrobe!
