Your dearest kimono item(s)

Pfff, that's a tough question... One of my dearest kimono items would be my orange furisode.

It's the first kimono I ever bought, and it's given me my new and dear friend Misuchi.

I also love my hitoe peacock kimono (don't really know if it's a tsukesage or a houmongi), together with my peacock-feather obi. Just because it's such a perfect match!

The last one I'll post, is an olivegreen houmongi (I guess, really terrible at this) I got from Misuchi, for helping with her website. She saw I had an orange obi with carts on it, and this kimono also has little carts on it. And this is also a perfect match.
