For the Birds

My kimono friends and I went to a special birding exhibit at the art museum today, and we were to wear bird-themed kimono if we had them. I had planned on wearing my peacock tomesode, but it ended up being 85 degrees today. Too hot for double-lined silk, padded hems, and embroidery! I had not brought another kimono with me, so my friend let me borrow this gorgeous taisho-era irotomesode that features a rooster. What a cool piece! I paired it with my tortoiseshell and kiku fukuro obi, a green obiage, and white obijime.
