New Year's Kitsuke (belated) and My Boyfriend in Yukata!
I know it's been 10 days since New Year's day, but my kurotomesode didn't come in until two days ago, and I've been dying to do some kitsuke with it. Since my silver obijime has not arrived yet, and I do not own a white obiage, I have substituted a cream obijime and light pink obiage for the meantime. (Forgive me!) I paired the kimono with my pine fukuro obi, which I think went quite nicely with it. It fit the season very well. ^_^ The kurotomesode itself has pheasants on it, of which I am uncertain of the seasonality (if there is one). When I get married, I will be happy because I can pull this one out again for ceremonial occasions.
Mac got his first yukata in the mail today! Since the obi has yet to arrive, we substituted a red hanhaba obi that we folded in half to look like a kaku obi. It's bold, but I've seen more brightly colored men's obi lately, and since it's informal, I think it looks just fine! He looks so handsome!
