Typically, when I buy kimono, I am looking for inexpensive buys, and I'm definitely not afraid to buy things that need cleaning or repair. The biggest problem I run into is finding things that fit my 5'8" frame. So today, I spent more than I usually would to get a TL size kimono and obi set. I keep laughing because it often gets translated as "Thor size" (and I certainly feel that way sometimes)! Since I got my tax refund, I feel a little less bad about spending so much, but I believe it will be worth it. The picture below is the set I bought:
I just loved the color combination! I will probably use pink accessories as in the picture, but I bet pale blue would also be pretty. I also spent a few extra dollars to get LL zori thrown into the package. I don't get to pick those, so it will be interesting to see what color I get! I cannot wait to get the set and try it on!
