OMG This Haori

As you all know I've been pretty damn good lately and have bought anything in a long time. But once in a while a kimono item pops up that makes you drool and makes you lust after it. That my dears is what occurred today for me. The funny thing is it's yellow!!! Normally I shy away from yellow because it's just not my color but this haori made me not give a damn about that.

 I can't wait for it to come to my house. This vintage little treasure cost me a little over $50 but so wroth it! I have no clue what I'll wear it with.

I finally bought a Yukata outfit!!! I really haven't had the funds to buy kimono lately but on my trip to LA I made an exception. Me and Adam visited Little Tokyo and it was our first time down here. At first I could not find any shops with real kimono and I was loosing hope but then we passed this shop that had film all over the windows. It was hard to see in the shop but I could make out a table filled with Geta. It peeked my interest enough to go in and I must say I'm thrilled I did! From the outside the shop appeared to be tiny but once with in it was huge. One of the biggest kimono shops I have ever been in. They had a good selection of yukata and I was thankful! I've been on a mission for one since The San Jose Festival incident with the massive nose bleed. I had bought a pair of geta for $11.99 at another small shop. They where a steal cute and a size 10 not to mention comfy.

At the shop they had a ton of cute yukata but I didn't want the ultra cute young looking ones since my 25th birthday is coming up I wanted a yukata that is cute but mature. I think I hit that mark. They also have prettied obi and since I've never had one I decided to give it a shot. I bought tis cute flower patterned obi it's actually a darker red in person.  ^ ^ Adam approved which made me very happy and commented on my good purchase. I have yet to wear it and I can't wait for it to get warmer so I can break this cutie in. <3 p="">
