When I saw the Tentacio kimono outfit for The Arcade was named Midory, I had to try it. When I was in college, one of my friends was a student from Japan named Midori. Midori and Midory are the same, when languages written in other alphabets are written in our alphabet, the transliteration may vary. She came home with me for Thanksgiving and Christmas and I remember we put on quite the feast with steamed cucumbers stuffed with pork, gyoza, tempura, and other tasty foods. She had a few kimonos and insisted on dressing me up in one of hers. It was very fancy and after she wrapped that obi around my waist again and again and again, I thought I would never need a jacket. So here’s to Midori, who, to be honest, I cannot imagine ever wearing anything so short as this dress that bears her name.
I love the ease, the casual comfort with the nod to traditional forms in Tentacio’s dress.
I thought these lace-up Kioko pumps from BREATHE are just the perfect blend of style and youthful insouciance.
DOE released a fun hairstyle called Renee at The Arcade. Its texture hud has some duotone options with the hair underneath a different color.
And just in time for spring, Glam Affair has a romantic skin named Enea with springlike colors that you can track down at Collabor88.
