Navy and Grey Houmongi

I'm so excited to have bought this houmongi last night! It was one of those pieces that I didn't hesitate for even a moment about. It's very much my style ^_^

Everyone I have spoken to about coordinating this kimono has wanted me to go with a very bright obi. Subdued is sort of my signature style, so I'm unsure about what I want to do right now. I will likely have to look at several obi options in person to decide...

Also, any ideas what the white and yellow flowers are? I know the black leaves on the bottom half are kaede, but the others with the buds have me stumped...


  1. Sigh...that kimono is absolutely divine.
    It looks like it was made for you.

    1. Thank you, Hasume-san! I fear that sometimes my choices in kimono make me look like an old maid, but I prefer the clean look that comes with these colors and styles.

  2. It's a good thing both of us have graduated from the Maiko-henshin look to Geisha-henshin - as I think we'd both be fired for having "mature taste..."

    I just love the combination of storm grey and deep sea green. It's glorious.
