Qipao Charm

on me: Zara long dress, vintage velvet shawl and fan, Chanel bejewelled sandals, Kenneth Jay Lane necklaces and bracelet, vintage bangles, rings and earrings.

Movie: In The Mood For Love and my previous post on Maggie Cheung wearing Qipao.

Qipao / cheongsam is a classic Chinese dress since the 17th century. People rarely wear it nowadays. A tailor made one can be very expensive to make and I bought mine from Zara on sale for $29 just a week before Chinese New Year. Unbelievable and unbeatable price. I could see myself smile in my dreams when I saw the price tag.
