Cause of my Chinese roots and I really love history, I got to thinking about what China was like back in the 20s. No doubt it would have been a totally different place from the West. I hear that Shanghai then was even more of a crowd pleaser than New York, I can't imagine the Bund wouldn't have looked much different than today. Well, there's probably a lot more people today though.
These are some posters from that period which show massive influences the West had on China. Women still dressed in traditional qipaos although their hair styles are influenced by Western styles. Every Chinese gal needs to have a qipao in their wardrobe and needs to wear it every month ha. That's the rule.
I'd just inherited this chiffon qipao from my aunt when I was back in China the other month. Perfect for this post I thought. I was gonna go outside to take some photos but the police decided to turn up at the house next door and were hanging outside for ages. The dress is kinda too big.
Trying a little mirror effect.
Bag is from Urban Outfitters a long time ago.
Flatforms from ASOS and they are not made for walking. Worst shoes ever.
