I recently attended the South Florida Addys awards with my boss, as our design firm had won a few awards.
Being a black tie event, I didn’t really have anything fancy to wear – but then I remembered, my kuro-tomesode! Of course, it is formal, possibly too formal for this event, but being a classic outfit, it would fit right in. I don’t have proper kuro-tomesode accessories, so I just used the red shibori obiage and red and white obijime. To be honest, though – I like using the red accessories more – it added some extra spunk into the outfit. It isn’t very good kitsuke, but, I do feel I’m slowly starting to get somewhere.
