This time I'm wearing a pale grey yabane pattern hitoe kimono (washable poly!) and a fabulous chuuya obi featuring a kingfisher catching a shrimp on one side.
The obi design is really amazing- very subtle colors of blues and gold-tan, a woven design. The other side is black with yellow and lime green shibori tie-dye, which looks like this.
There are various water plants, waves, and even a suggestion of shells and a fishing net depicted. I picked up some of the tan with a gold obiage; the obijime is blue and white stripe. Zori are grey-blue polka-dot with grey tabi sox. The haneri is from Ichiroya/Kimonotte and is actually for summer but I couldn't resit the fish and wave motif!
