Hope you all are keeping safe and at home during this pandemic.
While I shared the complete experience on the #TokyoChallenge blog, I thought of sharing few pictures and how I came up with this outfit, with my lovely readers all as well.
Its beautiful sleeves can be worn poncho or sleeveless style, and can be styled in more ways than one.
I decided to style this beautiful dress with a tiered black skirt from ZARA that adds volume to the look and added a waist belt to cinch the waist.
|Kimono Dress, mini Beret : Keiko Tagai
Skirt : Zara
Heels : Charles & Keith
Belt : Flea market, Mumbai
Hand fan : from a store in China
I accessorised the outfit with a mini beret that is also designed by Keiko Tagai and features this stunning floral print that instantly brightens the outfit. I brought a little Indian element in the look with my lotus shaped dangler earrings and finished the look my favorite black heels from Charles & Keith.
Also, my hand fan that I had bought from China came in really handy (and finally been put to use) to add another Geisha element to this look.
What do you think of this look? Have you had a real life meeting with a Geisha before?
Ending the post with this beautiful quote by Arthur Golden :
“She paints her face to hide her face. Her eyes are deep water. It is not for Geisha to want. It is not for geisha to feel. Geisha is an artist of the floating world. She dances, she sings. She entertains you, whatever you want. The rest is shadows, the rest is secret.”
