First day of 2013 kitsuke

 Hello again!

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.

Craptacular light but you can see the haori length.. and my Angry Birds slippers...

... 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.
Sorry, I have no photos of the obi musubi it's katabasami for those curious. I actually wore this same coordination on 30th December 2012, except with kai no kuchi musubi.

I don't have so much more to add, I'm looking forward to what 2013 will bring!


  1. Fine combination : D
    Do you prefer the dark colours?

    Then I look at your hairstyle I imagine: guy a little innovative, "active/kreative".
    I could imagen that you can wear "with style" rather evocative combinations.

    Kind Regards

    1. Thank you!
      Yes, but I like lighter colors too. It depends on my mood. :)

      Haha, I'm an artist (I love drawing/painting) and write poetry on my freetime, so yes, I'm creative. :)

      I'm glad you think so.
