Also: the kimonos I bought? Well, I've only opened one, because I'm savoring the excitement, but I'll just say--Worth. Every. Penny. This first brocade one included not only the underlayer kimono and the outer black one, but two soft sashes, an obi, AND a haori in the same brocade as the outer kimono.
I really wish I didn't have a music rehearsal and a ton of reading to do tonight, AND a trip out of town tomorrow through Saturday morning. I want to stay home and plaaaaaaaaaay!
