Kimono & Mikimoto x Hello Kitty


Today, my four sisters and I went to rent the summer kimono for our last day in Japan and here's what I got. I decided to wear the soft pastel color kimono since it was really hot this afternoon and yes, I was happy with it. With the help of my eldest sister, Kiki who took these pictures and did my hair today, here you go, yours truly trying so hard to be a Japanese girl (or not hahaha).





I also wore my super cute Mikimoto x Hello Kitty Akoya cultured pearl bangle to match my Kimono earlier today. Anyway, this collaboration collection will be launched in September (Autumn 2014) and I'd say it's such an honor for me being one of those people who can have the kitty bangle beforehand. I myself is not a big fan of Hello Kitty but when I saw this bangle for the first time, I knew that I should get this for sure! The detail of the ribbon is everything to me, it's such a darling. Be sure to subscribe (or check often) on their website to keep updated so you won't miss this adorable kitty bangle and other lovely products when they're launched ;)






"Product of the MIKIMOTO x HELLO KITTY encounter, this stylish bangle draws the eye with a three-dimensional rendition of Kitty’s iconic ribbon. Conceived to appeal to a playful spirit, it’s perfect for women everywhere who love Hello Kitty."




Anyway, in case you are wondering, I rented this whole set of kimono at Yumeyakata in Kyoto. And yes, there are still plenty of kimono/yukata rental places that you can find in Japan so no need to worry if you're planning to come and look for (buy/rent) some pretty kimono to wear ;)

  10. No offense, but you'd better smile to the camera when you wear kinds of cute outfit to make the sweetness of the outfit more 'refreshing'. =} Suggestion from reader. Hahaha..

  25. Beautiful pictures as always, Anastasia! I am currently studying in Japan and I've tried on a yukata as well! I love how yours is very soft and not as bold as some other yukatas I know... The pastel color really looks good on hot, Summer days! Plus, your bracelet is so adorable and unique - instead of having a hello kitty charm, it's shaped like hello kitty instead!

  31. Who would have ever thought that traditional Japanese wear Kimono would go so well with the modern twist of Helly Kitty (just got to know that Hello Kitty is NOT A CAT... OMG o_O). I've been to Kyoto and indeed there are many women that still wear it Kimonos and thus I always associate Kyoto with ancient temples and mysterious culture.

    Nice photos by the way you and look lovely in them... ^_^
