Geisha Girl

Photobucket

Last week, someone at work described me as looking like a "little China doll", someone else chipped in with "Geisha girl". Dark hair and pale skin makes this an easy comparison I suppose and coincidentally I have always been slightly obsessed with Geisha and their style. This kimono jacket, hung on the sale rack in Top Shop caught my eye immediately, such a huge shame that they did not have the wide matching palazzo pants in my size.

On a side note, I wanted to thank Dizzy Tea (isn't that the best blog name!?!) for the amazing doodle she did of me. She is quite new to the blogging world, so go show her some love...

  1. gorgeous jacket! it looks great with your hair. I used to have bangs like that and definitely have pale skin. Of course, having a japanese name doesn't help keep people from thinking the same thing about me! lol

    p.s. following her blog now

  6. This jacket is gorgeous! My mum actually tried it and the matching trouseurs on when we were shopping together a while back, but I couldn't persuade her to buy it. Maybe now it's in the sale...

  20. Great jacket... I love the kimono style! Now you just need the matching sandas with the tabi socks. I am fascinated by the Geisha world, though unfortunately during my visit to Japan I was too young to appreciate it all.

  21. You DO resemble a gorgeous geisha girl! And the kimono jacket looks so lovely on you!

    Isn't it interesting how we are different to how we are perceived on our blogs? I had no idea that I wasn't coming off as the knitting needles-early bedtime-introvert type, haha!
