So today instead of making kanzashi I acutally got to wear it! And how! I'm dressed in Christmas inspired ensemble with green komon (informal kimono) with camellia and leaves, ivory nagoya obi with embroidered mandarin ducks and green obi-ge and obi-jime.
Kanzashi on the photo is:
you are very beautifuuuuul ^^
So beautiful! The kimono, your craft and you! <3
You look absolutely gorgeous!
Your kimono is lovely!
You look so nice!
The ensemble is beautiful~ Though if you don't mind constructive criticism, I think it looks a little more springy rather than Christmasy ~ I think I would have added a bit more red, maybe a red Obi-jime. ^^ That's just my personal opinion though~
I tried red accessories with it and it looked too flashy for my taste. I usually try to make my coordinations elegantly subdued and it was a challenge to coordinate such a busy komon as most of my kimonos have a very small pattern or are iromuji.
Well you definitely scored on the elegance factor~ You look very lovely~ Those were only my suggestions but I can see what you mean by the red looking too flashy. I'm sure the ensemble looks very different in person as the lighting is very dim ^^
You look so beautiful! The kimono color and pattern works very well with your hair and complexion.
You look beautiful~
