"12 Days of Kimono" - Day 5
Day 5 of the "12 Days of Kimono"! This ensemble is a very formal one with a red furisode featuring waves, carts, lucky motifs, and LOTS of flowers. The obi is a heavy black rokutsuu fukuro with a karabana design. For the obiage, I chose a deep blue-purple shibori one with gold flecks (it shows up more blue in the pictures). The round obijime is half gold and half silver. It personally reminds me of the garland on a Christmas tree. The zori follow suit in gold with red bottoms. For the final touches of formality, a black glittery date-eri and cream embroidered haneri were chosen.
