Coordinate for Tanabata 2018 July 7 @ Bunkyo

Have gone through something like at least 10 ideas about what to wear today, July 1st, (want to Taisho-ish coordination), but did manage to decide what to wear next Saturday for my student's kitsuke lesson. This bamboo-motif yukata (for Tanabata on 7/7) and golden hanhaba obi (not pictured).

Wait, wait, wait! I have an asagao (morning glory) hanhaba obi, perfect for Tanabata!

image



And, that is indeed what I wore!!!

Attempt at Taisho-style yukata worn for neighborhood firefly viewing.

Until the "Yukata Boom"(1980s?) it was standard for adult women to wear yukata without nagajuban (but with hada-juban) and Nagoya obi.
