21st birthday yukata - part 2!

i thought there wasnt enough justice done for my yukata with the previous post in part one, coz mostly it was about my birthday. so here i am again, dedicating this entire post to my yukata~ yes, with photos of the yukata being worn too. i hope you can forgive the low photo quality. XD

this was taken with my phone camera on timer, sorry for the headless body!

i decided to wear the obi slightly different this time, and hopefully try a new style every time! ^__^ there are too many ways you can wear a hanhaba obi (compared to tsuke obi) especially when it is paired with obiage.

a close-up of the obi before i pushed it to my back.. notice the little knot of the pink obijime?

this style is a pink-green hanhaba obi matched with a white laced obiage. its up to you how and where you want the obiage to be whether tying a bow or showing more lace at the front. (which makes it a versatile accessory!) i decided to tie a double bow knot for the back which gives it the volume you see in the photo below~

きれい で しょう?

thanks for your support by reading! i'll post photos more from Bon Odori (17 July). so stay tuned if you want to see more yukata photos~

p.s. the yukata fair in mid valley jusco will end today! *wink*
