Kimono Challenge Tag #2

Hello Everyone,

I had a hard time with this question, because it was so hard to narrow down my absolute favorite items.

2. Your dearest kimono item(s).

I think this is my absolute favorite kimono because I actually have to stop myself from reaching for it every time I get dressed in kimono. 

I don't wear this kimono nearly enough, but it is very special because of the crest. The crest it has on it is a hawk feather, which my husband and I choose as our "family" crest. Now I can only buy kimono with that crest. Also, the color is absolutely GORGEOUS! Finally, this kimono reminds me of the time my closest friends went to take professional photos in kimono for our kimono club. 

I also don't wear this kimono much, but it is very special because this is literally my dream kimono item come true. It's bright red, just the right shade I was always looking for.

And this would probably be my favorite obi that I own. I also have to stop myself from wearing it every time lol.

Another obi that I absolutely love, it is just perfectly funky and matches a lot of stuff.

I love fun cotton tabi, but these are my favorite because they are red and have bunnies on them! :)

Finally this obiage is very special for me because my husband got it for me at a convention. He actually got me  4 others, but this was the one I grabbed and refused to let go.

So what are your most special kimono items?

  1. Cute tabi! I think I need to start collecting fun looking tabi since I have been banned from buying kimono and obi by my partner.
