  4. Love her outfit but I think the sandals and white socks are horrible. I guess they complement the outfit but still....

    1. Those white socks/shoes are traditional wear for Japanese women. "Geta (下駄) are a form of traditional Japanese footwear that resemble clogs and flip-flops. They are a kind of sandal with an elevated wooden base held onto the foot with a fabric thong to keep the foot well above the ground."

      The kimono has beautiful colors.

    2. The socks and sandals are traditional with the outfit. Perhaps read up on the kimono style.

    3. Lizzie, what do you think should be worn instead of the white socks (tabi ) and sandals (zouri)?

    4. Anon 10:22,
      No. Sandals she’s wearing are not Geta but Zouri.
      Wooden Geta is more casual than Zouri made with leather , cloth ,vinyl and so on.

    5. I don't know - I am not up on Japanese fashion, obviously. I just don't like the look of the footwear.

  6. I care about chocolate and little creamer on the table in the photo of 2 & 3.
    Is this creamer from the most prestigious porcelain workshop in Austria?

  9. Beautiful Furisode (long sleeve) Kimono !
    Japanese ladies should not wear the Kimono-style dress Mary loves to wear.

    1. I'm glad to know the name of this style of sleeve, which I don't recall seeing before. Its long and tapered look is particularly beautiful. It seems more formal to me than the sleeves normally seen on kimonos, but I don't know if that is the case or if I just haven't paid close attention when looking at other kimonos.

  10. Im Kimono gefällt sie mir sehr. Sie wirkt auf mich selbstbewusster. Die Frisur passt auch perfekt.

  11. Her whole look is very nice but I especially love her hair style. I would love to see this same style with a tiara.

    1. Du könntest es noch ein paar mal posten, es wird dadurch nicht besser. Die Prinzessin ist sehr konservativ aber süß, der Kimono für unsere Augen ungewohnt aber wunderschön. Das Wiener Ambiente ist nun mal toll!

    2. Naja rasiert hat er sich jedenfalls nicht.

  14. This is sooo pretty. The kimono appears to have unusual sleeves that have a long, tapering line -- very graceful. And Kako's hair is gorgeous.

  15. Fantastic look, this Kimono is stunning.
