Something I want!

While this is not something I've bought (even if I do dearly wish to own it), I just absolutely HAVE to post pictures of this hakama set that was posted on Mamechiyo's blog!!

Don't you just adore that combination of brown and pink? With hints of orange to harmonize the whole set.. And that cute bow for your hair!! The tulips on the han-eri (the patterned juban collar.. han eri is the name of the patterned cloth you sew onto your juban's collar so that it's colourful rather than plain white) completes the look.

I really like how they added that decoration thingy (there's a name for this, but I just can't put my finger on it at the moment) to the obi at the top of the hakama. I don't think I ever would have thought of that! It might make it look really busy at that area, but the retro look IS meant to be busy, after all.

*sighs dreamily* Someday, I WILL recreate this look! *gets fired up in determination and runs off screaming about the 'springtime of youth'* :P If you didn't get my reference, go watch Naruto the anime.
