I try hard to rotate through my items and not become fixated on any one piece. However, despite that – there are a number of items that recieve quite a bit of wear.

Despite it’s Winter design of tachibana, this haori is quite versatile in my kimono closet both because of it’s longer sleeves to fit some of my longer sleeve kimono, but also the colour seems to go with everything:

This kimono ends up seeing a fair amount of wear also:

My black shusu embroidered tsuzumi obi also goes with a large number of kimono in my collection:

The above three items form this ensemble, which my husband fondly refers to as the “Power Taisho” outfit:

This chuya obi, surprisingly, has had a fair amount of use:

I have two han’eri I’m particularly fond of and pair with a lot of ensembles. One is this green one:

the other is the same type of faux kanoko shibori han’eri, but in a gorgeous aqua colour with different flowers embroidered on it, which I don’t have a separate photograph of it yet.

Last, but not least – zori! I have rather large feet, so it’s difficult to find zori in my size, so these particular LL zori get a LOT of wear! Thankfully, they are of colours that go with nearly everything!
