Now that school is rapidly coming to a close and summer is upon us, I have been planning my trip back to the States. More importantly, I have been planning my wardrobe.
One thing that I really miss about the States is Target. Laugh if you will, but a world without Target is dark and lonely. I miss roaming the aisles and finding that deal on something I didn’t know I needed or the $4.99 shirt that everyone asks about. This is the stuff of life people and China doesn’t have anything to compare.
What China does have though are tailors. Well a few weeks back I was in Hong Kong and I purchased this super cute dress. I mean; I am crushing on this dress. And as soon as I put it on, I knew that I was going to have it samed, samed.
The thing is, you really can’t count on the same, same turning out exactly as you planned. I have had several things made at the Chinese National Tailor here in Old Shekou. Some have been on the mark, but some have completely gone wrong. Like, throw this away; it’s not worth even trying to salvage wrong. However, this time they got it right and my heart is fluttering.
When I have posted about having things made in the past, I usually don’t put in photos of myself with the new clothes. I mean, if you are my friend, you know what I look like, I know what I look like, so who needs photos of me? Well, like I said, I am crushing on these dresses and I must share them with you. I feel like these photos are kind of a bad Facebook post though, so I apologize ahead of time. Check out the dresses… how cute are they??? The orange one is the original and the other two are the ones I had made… loves it!
