When I saw this yukata I fell head over heels in love. It is this that I can fully blame for me getting so hard into kimono. I spent far more than I wanted to on it but it was one of those where I was absolutely in love. I've never seen a yukata I've loved before so I'm very happy to finally have such a staple piece. I also had quite an adventure in washing it as it was stiff as a board and stank of storage. It went alright though.
This grey hitoe (komon?) is one of those things where I was completely "Well I'm already buying stuff from this seller and it's a $1 so why not?" The bidding stopped short of $10 but the seller was great about shipping so including shipping it only cost me about $15. I wore it at Ikkicon since the wool hitoe I ordered from Shinei hadn't arrived yet (it got there hours after I left for the con lol).
