Vintage Buys - Diamond Kimono and Crane Juban

As much as I love new and modern pieces, I've been itching to get some more vintage ones. Since I got permission to start our own Kimono de Jack here in  Memphis (Twitter -- Facebook -- Blog), I figured it would be a good time to do some kimono hime with some vintage kimono. Truly, the only vintage kimono I own are these two. Pretty (well, and one is crazy...) but both are BLUE. And I found so many kimono with blue as the predominant color in this search. But the one I ended up purchasing caught my eye because it was 1. NOT blue, and 2. the diamonds make it look kind of like a big playing card.

I also grabbed this juban since I own none with longer sleeves.

Now I have to figure out how to coordinate the kimono... =)
