Visiting cathedral in kimono

This Saturday I got to wear kimono again. :) My husband and I went to the Apple Festival in Ely, UK but the festival turned out to be huge disappointment. Luckily for us, it was on Ely Cathedral grounds so instead we went to look at the cathedral.

Of course I couldn't pass up the opportunity to wear kimono again. I promised to one of Immortal Geisha forum members that I will wear an all brown ensemble as soon as my brown tsumugi kimono arrives in the mail. So here it is, all brown :) Brown striped tsumugi kimono, brown kokeshi doll obi, brown obiage and obijime, brown owl tabi, brown hat. Ever scarf and zori had some brown in it :) Overall I'm very happy with the color combination. Considering it is all brown, nothing gets lost in the ensemble and everything is perfectly visible.

I felt very autumnely in this kimono :)


  1. I like it! Has a very nice feel to it. :) I've never been to Ely, but hear that it is really nice.

  2. I love this combination!
    Your hat and glasses and choice of color are making this old-type tsumugi so modern.
    The way of tying obijime is so lovely too. :)

    And this cathedral is profoundness and beautiful!
    Is this place near to your house?

  3. Shigatsuhana, I only saw little part of Ely - the one by cathedral. I would have loved to see more, but we are still unfamiliar with parking there so we were completely frustrated with finding parking. Just for that reason alone I think it's going to take me a while to get back to Ely LOL.

    Oden, thank you :) I like all shades of brown in my clothes, and so I like it in kimono too. The cathedral is about 30 min drive from my house, but there are also many others that I haven't visited yet.

  4. I love the color combo's here and I must say the hat makes you fit in. meaning you look like a native. Again your cuteness I is present as always!

  5. I like your owl tabi and zori ensemble. Hat too. Let's enjoy autumn!
