How to wear red for my age

I like to wear red and pink. Actually I liked. Recently I feel guilty wearing these good-for-young colors. But how do I do for this red asanoha komon kimono?  I can't dump it...Still I want to wear it!
Me about 5 years ago in red komon 
Lyuta suggested me to change its red hakkake lyner to dark-brown. Higashi promised me to make nice obi sash for this red kimono. Please see his beautiful shibori tie-dyeing work for his tea master. If he would make me a cool obi sash only for me....(to be continued)

You look so wonderful! I love your hair! This kimono doesn't look one bit too young on you, you look fresh and sweet, just like you are!

Haha, thank you! Until early-showa, mature women in red were definitely prohibited. Now I am trying to break old custom!

I think you should wear it anyway! You are right, times are different now and you can do it without afraid of breaking the custom. :) I think you should wear what makes you happy! :)

I think red is a lovely colour and you should wear that kimono more often.

It would be a shame to just keep it in the drawers.
