Parading around in a painted face, robe, and slippers is what you do on dateless Saturday nights. Not how you seduce the opposite sex.
Take a different page from Memoirs of a Geisha: Adorn your tresses in kanzashi accessories by Thea Starr. These handmade hair clips are modeled on accoutrements worn by Japanese brides, courtesans, and young girls on New Year’s Day.
With vintage kimonos, habotai silks, and bamboo fabrics, Starr practices the ancient art of tsumami — pinching and folding fabric — to create intricate, floral designs she then decorates.
Each is decidedly feminine, though entirely unique. Elegant, cascading wisteria suit formal attire. But cutesy flowers decorated with ninja figurines betray your inner feistiness.
What style to order?
That’s your call, girl.
