Alexis Bittar earrings, tabi sox and multicolored geta. The inspiration was the fabulous Jordan McMillan handbag with woven grosgrain ribbons in greens, pink, cream, tan, and black. It's so cute and the colors work perfectly with the yukata. Sorry, no time to recreate this look! Next time, when I have more time!
Emma agreed with choosing a yukata for comfort and wore her favorite tea green dress with violet obi and this time she had a matching handbag and haneri that she made. She had also found a nifty pink silk flower hair clip that made a lovely accent for her light green obijime.
After Otsukimi, we went to a fabulous Italian restaurant that was very close to the garden: Cibo. We had excellent pizza and a lovely wine, a Botromogno Primitivo from Puglia. (Amazing gluten free pizza available!) Their patio was gorgeous with several trees filled with fairy lights; the restaurant is in a lovely historic old home. A perfect end to a fun evening! I hope next year's event is even better.
