Left my Heart in Tokyo

I really love this adorable jumper with its bright geisha motif, which I came across quite unexpectedly during an impromptu shopping trip after work recently, and was delighted to find. I've long had a fascination with geisha customs and of course the intricate hair and make-up styles. Although I can't see myself being quite so committed to a fully-made up look, or possessing the grace and manners of a formally trained geisha, it was lovely to don this jumper and capture an essence of the geisha, if only for a day. I took pictures both inside and outside, on a very cold and windy day. The sun made a brief appearance but, like most good things, was gone too soon. Oh and the title of this post is a reference to the song by Mini Viva, which you can listen to here.

Would you like to be a geisha for a day?
