I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this already, but one of my all-time favorite books is Memoirs of a Geisha. Yes, I know it’s rife with factual errors (read Geisha, A Life by Mineko Iwasaki if you’re interested in learning about what it’s really like to be a geisha), but the descriptions are so poetic that I can’t help but find myself lost in that novel from time to time.
The dress I’m wearing now vaguely reminds me of some of the kimono that are detailed in Memoirs. A few of them featured whole scenes of Japan, and that’s what it seems like my dress is doing. Instead of a print, there’s an evening forest, replete with vibrant shades of blue and red.
Now, if I could get my hands on a real kimono with a scene like this…
