Least used kimono item.

I like to wear out all my kimono, its clothing ain’t it? However, there are some pieces I am afraid to walk out the door in so they are admired and not used much. My Geisha susohiki in particular.

I have three, a pink september hitoe hikizuri which has been worn once:

Baka Hime In Kyoto Geiko Hikizuri (2)

My black hikizuri:

and my favourite purple hikizuri which has not made it onto a human yet:

Baka Hime in Purple Paper Crane Hikizuri (2)

Due to ‘the fear’ which will be detailed in part #9 these will always be my least used kimono items, forever. That and my korin belt.
