The Rose Bouquet Challence continues


I got this kimono on mail last week. It was listed as meisen but it isn't. I think it's chirimen, sort of. The kimono sleeves are about the same length as the sleeves of my meisen haori.

I think they go quite nicely together ^_^ But I need black tabi!

It would be nice if my kimono and haori had a bit larger wingspan but I guess you just can't have everything. Anyway I'm quite happy with this ensemble! Hope I can wear it out someday.

What great ensemble. It looks stunning, this obi is so pretty!
Maybe the kimono is omeshi? I think many people even sellers mix them up. Still, I like it a lot very fun. Black tabi would be great ^_^ but I think white or light is ok too as you wonderful obi is light.

It looks very pretty! Must be nice to have such a versatile obi.

Thanks Misuchi! I also thought it might be omeshi but the fabric doesn't feel like my other omeshi kimono at all. Or perhaps it was also wrongly listed...

Kyuukaryuko, thanks :) I'm very happy with this obi, must be the best purchase I've ever made.

Great ensemble! It really looks like ensembles in the Mokona's Okimono Kimono book. All that's missing is a cute hat haha. I love it! XD
