ORIENTAL DISCLOSURE





All taken by BCHK.

I am wearing Wing Print Jacquard Poly Silk Dress in Burgundy from Shanghai Tang.

If you live in Hong Kong, Shanghai Tang is no mystery. Its most notable existence was the large building on Pedder Street in Central that I not once stepped into until it became Abercrombie & Fitch a few years ago.
Shanghai Tang to pre-teen and toddler Mildred was nothing but an extremely Chinese, oriental store that sold expensive things. Those descriptions are still relevant, but pre-teen Mildred had no interest in Chinese culture. Teenager-almost-adult (haha) Mildred now is very interested in Chinese culture and the fashion. 

It started about a year ago when I bought these two dresses from Zalora. I'm wearing the white and blue one today! Zalora has some very nice Chinese/qipao inspired clothes that I am really considering buying. The only problem is the quality- questionable quality and sizing is slightly weird. But for the price, quite alright I think.

Embrace your culture, kids. Or if you're a TCK (third culture kid, I learnt this in Geography last week *laughing crying emoji*), embrace all your cultures!

Happy Chinese New Year!
