Purple-blue komon

Today I decided to skip my classes at the gym and do some kitsuke again, and it was about time ^_^

This is my latest komon, and it's the perfect size for me. I actually don't know if it's dark blue or dark purple, hence the purple-blue... The hanhaba obi I paired it with has a yellow/light brownish color with purple outlined flowers on it. Doesn't it combine nicely?

I've also got 1 purple obi jime and 2 purple obi age, but what do you think is best? The dark or lighter obi age?










Or leave the obi age and just use the obi jime?

What a beautiful colour that is! I love subtle colours for kimono especially komon because it's so casual. I wish I could tie different bows a lot better than I do now

Thank you!
This bow is actually really easy to tie, and hanhaba are easy to work with. Just keep on practicing ^_^
