In Honor of Chinese New Year (Jan 28)

In honor of Chinese New Year, I wanted to post some of my pictures I did awhile back in my traditional Vietnamese dress (the correct term is "Ao Dai" to be exact). However, I am not Chinese but my culture (Vietnamese) does celebrate this holiday (we call it "tết"). The dress I am currently was a gift from my parents. They had it custom-made for me in Vietnam. With these dresses, yes you can buy it in a store but it will be difficult to find the one that fits you well. All of these dresses are made to fit your body and no one else's. Every little detail is measure to a T. And this is why I love this dresses. It fits me perfectly and I don't have to worry about someone wearing the same one as me!
