Kiriko sells vintage kimonos and I really want one, like the above shibori jacket. I want one not only because they are gorgeous, hand-dyed, one-of a kind pieces, but because I want to be the kind of person who wears gorgeous, hand-dyed, one-of a kind pieces. The kind of person who drinks obscure green teas, purchased from an out-of-the-way rare tea and coffee shop that is run by a diminutive old man, whose limitless tea-related knowledge is balanced only by his unyielding apathy toward customers. I like to think that after a few years, we'd develop an unspoken trust between us and he'd start giving me samples from his personal tea stash. I guess what I'm saying is: it's good to support local businesses.
