Technically speaking why not? Aristo has a suitable silhouette and the more mature look might allow for the use of my komon kimonos, I thought (in class where I was actually supposed to be learning to combine dvalarhorf with lokið horf II), and then I just sort of went for it.
I'm not entirely sure how well I succeeded but at least the end result is not an absolute eyesore. I think. Kimono enthusiasts might raise their eyebrows a bit at the hitoe, true enough it was not yet warm enough for it! I knew I was going to fold it up a lot at the ohashori so I deducted that a thin fabric might go better, besides this komon is wayyyyyy too short for me as it is. Next time I'll try to make use of one of the lined kimono instead though so I can actually wear the combo outside for a while...
Then I decided to go running around in the garden. Enjoy the artsy fartsy sun-right-in-front-of-camera pics. :D
Black lace scarf thingy got also involved.
As for how satisfied I am at the outcome... well, some I am and some I think could have been done better. Oh well, live and learn live and learn.
