Hitomi’s Kimono Story (Part 1)

20180322-_DSC3367

The kimono I am wearing comes from the local antique market. As I go there every month, there is a seller who I frequent who has come to know my style. He picks up items especially for me. I respect his advice and rely upon him to know what kind of kimono suit me. This one is an off-white komon which is partly striped and has a sakura design on it. He did not say it was sakura, but I knew that it was. I really like this kimono as it was specially picked out for me.

今着ている着物は、近所の骨董市で手に入れました。毎月その骨董市へ通ううち、一人のおじさんが私の好みをよく理解するようになりました。私のことを良く分かってくれているので、私のために似合いそうなものをわざわざ持ってきてくれてとてもありがたいです。この小紋は縞ですが、縞だけではなく桜もあります。おじさんは桜とは言わなかったのですが、桜だと思います。私のために選んで持ってきてくれた物なので、とても気に入っています。
