Rainbow Cottage Houmongi

Happy New Year! Today I wore kimono for the first time this year. ❤

This kimono is one of the few in my collection without long sleeves, and it’s also one of my favorite!

(I’m sorry for the night-time photos, the sun was setting, and it’s been raining all day today. 😦 )

Can you believe I got this kimono for only $22 USD?!

I love the hand-painted quality, you can see the brushstrokes on the fabric! 🙂
