My latest kimono purchase. I like the darker colored kimonos, bright colors don’t work well with me. Luckily I know a woman who is really knowledgeable about where to buy good second-hand kimonos and what to look for as far as fit and quality. It’s hard finding one that fits my arm length but this one works. When I thought of kimonos before I always figured they’d be so expensive and obviously the high quality ones are but there are some great second-hand ones at recycle shops. This one set me back 1,500 yen
