I bought this kimono absolute years ago in Vilnius. It’s wonderful, silk and double sided – there’s a beautiful dragon on the other side which I will definitely show you on Snapchat.

I know that this outfit will bring some of you mixed emotions – but where’s Edita? – let me assure you, I am more me in this look than ever. In fact, this was my exact hair style as a kid, my hair somehow was naturally much darker too; it lightened up as I grew older even without the dye. I have a feeling my parents who secretly stalk this blog will adore what may seem to be an alter ego to some, and try to convince me that a short bob is (and was – it was my mum who took me to the hair dressers’ saying it was time to chop off my tresses and Anna-Wintour it up as I turned nine) a good idea. It was, it automatically made me Victoria Beckham in every let’s-pretend-to-be-the-Spice-Girls game. She also happened to be my favourite.

But let’s talk about the Japanese inspiration of this shoot. One of my biggest dreams is to visit Tokyo and Kyoto. There are so many things that I admire about the Japanese: Their way of thinking, their dedication to tradition and their insatiable appetite for innovating, even if some of these inventions are ridiculed as a result. I get ridiculed and called “brave” for a lot of my bold style choices often too, so I think I’ll feel right at home at the Harajuku district among many other places one these phenomenal islands. This longing to see Japan has pushed me to shoot something inspired by it this wonderful country, so that I could share this fantastic vibe with you all.

  1. I’m swooning looking at these pictures. I would never in a thousand years have recognized you, Edita. I was puzzled by the first pic and even checked the url, lol. You really fooled me, that’s for sure. Anyhow, you look AMAZING, girl, wow and wow and triple wow!
