Kimono Challenge Tag #6 What do you like and don't like about kimono

Hello Everyone, 

There are not many things about kimono that I don't like, but the #1 of them is FOLDING! I simply hate folding kimono after I'm done wearing it! I literally have to force myself to fold it up, or it will stay on the couch (bed/floor/dresser) for weeks at a time. 

Another thing I don't really care for is that majority of kimono that I like are too small for me because they are vintage. Or too expensive if they are modern and new. There is no way I can spend hundreds or thousands of dollars for kimono items I want, and it sucks! I would love to wear Yumi Yamamoto's or Mamechiyo's kimono, but alas... I'll have to win a lottery first. 

Now, the things I love about kimono are endless! Or maybe I can just sum it up in one word: COOL! Kimono are just too cool for their own good :) And how many other garment out there can make you feel so beautiful and graceful in a matter of moments? The designs are gorgeous too, and pretty much anything can be put on kimono. But of course, it's the obsessed kimono person talking in me.
