|I love how deliciously vintage that couch is.|
|These were taken back in Hong Kong.|
The qipao is actually made from a very thin and delicate material and the snaps are starting to pull at the silk a bit, but is otherwise in very good condition. I'm not usually a fan of pink and purple together, but I tried it on anyway.
|I tried for the whole standing near a window thing.|
|Also I didn't iron it beforehand.|
|And I don't have awesome silver stilettos.|
|So yeah, Happy Mother's Day, Mom! I celebrated by stealing your dress for some pictures.|
I love that I'm actually old enough now to wear this dress (she also found her wedding reception dress, but it's too late for me to wear that to get married in!), but I'm still sad that my favorites of her old clothing are long gone. Which brings me to my next long-term project (and it's going to a looooong one, since I'm in no hurry, I just like the idea of it): making my own versions of my mom's wardrobe from the 70s! I've got the wide-legged trousers covered, and there are a couple of bohemian-ish dresses that I love. Good thing there's no shortage of 70s patterns in my stash...
