Tsukesage komon? Or a dance kimono? Whatever this is, I just had to have it! It just seemed too fabulous to pass up. So of course I bid on it (and won) despite the moratorium on new kimono for 2012! It hasn't arrived yet... maybe in about a week it will show up.
Speaking of wearing kimono, some Japanese and pan-Asian events are coming up very soon in my state: Phoenix Matsuri (February 25-26th) and the Taste of Asia Festival in Tucson. I think our festival is in April. When I know more, I will post times and dates.
