Sushi dinner with Amelie

Last night, I met up with Amelie and we dressed up and went for delicious sushi near her place. I decided to wear my new black komon with a cream hanhaba obi and haori, and Amelie wore her beautiful new pastel bingata-ish komon with a pretty blue nagoya obi.

I got a bit matchy-moo and even busted out a coordinating purse. I do love how the whole outfit came together.

I also tried karuta musubi for the first time and I am totally in love. It’s super easy to tie, and incredibly comfortable if you’re going for a car ride or going to be sitting western-style in a chair for long periods of time. I also think it looks like a cute little bow.

I really love how the blue of Amelie’s obi picked up on the pale blue in her kimono.

And if anyone wonders how one keeps warm in kimono in sub-zero temperatures, the answer is lots of layers and lots of accessories. I wore footless tights under my kimono and tabi and was quite toasty.

Of course, the star of the night was the sushi. We ordered waaaay too much food, but that’s okay. It was delicious!

And a bonus, here we are laughing like idiots!

What were we laughing at? The discovery of what happens when you eat way too much sushi in kimono

Omake – we came across this really awesome light fixture in a store near the restaurant. It was a branch covered in acrylic Sakura flowers with LEDs that slowly changed colour. It was so pretty!
