I actually wore this kimono for APAH (Asian Pacific Heritage Appreciation) opening ceremony, which consisted of giving out free cake and calendars of events. I was dressed in kimono to attract more attention. :) After all of cake was gone, my husband and I went to dinner and a movie and I got him to take some photos.
So this was back on May 2nd, and since this kimono is fully lines I thought I would be going a little overboard and will be super hot. I even wore a ro juban under it. Tough luck, this is UK we're talking about. I was actually COLD lol! :)
Every time I think of this kimono I also think of an episode from Louie the Rune Soldier, where Merril acquired herself a big jar of money and she kept running around for the whole episode yelling "my darling Jar!". I love that episode, and I'm happy I have a kimono that I can say that about lol. :)
