For my birthday, I decided to wear this houmongi, which was one of the first kimono I acquired. This photo was taken after driving to the BMV, then 2 hours trying to get my new license, driving home, then unwrapping birthday gifts, and eating brunch. My kitsuke did not hold up well. This is why I take photos right after I get dressed! Ah well, kimono is meant to be worn and lived in!
