I was planning on wearing kimono for my birthday last week, but I ended up changing my mind and wore it this week instead. 🙂
Since this is the last time I’ll wear hitoe this year, I decided I wanted to wear my usumono stripe kimono and newspaper print hanhaba obi. Oh, and yes, I dyed my hair darker for winter. I’m more of a burgundy brunette now than a redhead lol.
I tried my hand at tying a kai-no-kuchi musubi variant for the obi. This is one of my favorite obi. It has old newspaper clippings printed on it in white, black and red!
My eyeshadow and lipstick match the colors of the egyptian necklace that I wore with this outfit.
