I would have worn kimono already when the year shifted, but my back hurt and some other things so I didn't. :'( Oh well, I wore kimono today instead.
The dark purple kimono is borrowed from my brother. I'm not sure what fabric it is – it was listed as silk, if I remember right, but doesn't feel anything at all like my other silk kimono and it is totally matte; no shine whatsoever. The touch of the fabric is more like the lining on some of my kimono – cotton lining? But cotton kimono (yukata) are never lined, as far as I know, and this one is and also it's slightly heavier than your usual yukata so, err, I dunno. I'm confused. :S It's very comfortable to wear though.
I was very lazy to take pictures this time. *shot*
Sorry about the crummy photos.

... and they look like this:
|I'm wearing warm slippers almost 24/7 at home because|
my feet get terribly cold otherwise, and it's a pain.
I don't have so much more to add, I'm looking forward to what 2013 will bring!
