Here's the other obi that I bought. I was afraid the silver would be totally shiny but instead of being totally shiny it was totally shiny in a good way. I'm afraid I don't quite know how to explain this. Anyway, the coord turned out rather... dramatic. :D
I tried kaino-kuchi for the first time in my life. Could be a bit crisper about the folds but it's definitely a very elegant type of a knot and works well with a simple, geometric pattern obi.
Whoops windy Iceland is windy again...
Some detail shots of the obi.
Of course I had to throw the haori on top of the whole ensemble too. It has quickly become one of my favourite items of clothing.
Yet one more detail shot. Next time I'll try to style my hair in a bit more simple a style.
And whoa boy there will be so many next times! I'm planning to borrow some kimono from Mr bf for some playing around with. They may be made for men but they appeal to my tastes so I'm going to risk looking like a cross dresser and just go for it. :D
