This is my first time going out in kimono. It's not actually my first time wearing kimono but about the third. The first two tries were horrible!
The kimono is quite small and I made a too long ohashori. But it was fun to get all dressed up! The bingata-like design of the kimono is quite lovely and I think I picked a nice obi to go with it. The obiage-obijime set is not the best but it was the only one I had at the time.
This time I had some courage to go outside wearing kimono. My husband (or boyfriend at the time) took a lot of photos of me. People stopped by to look and their comments were all positive.
