Shanghai Girl-1930s Vintage Fashion

Friday, August 27, 2010

I'm going to a fun party tonight that's themed "A Evening in 1930s Shanghai."  I've been thinking about outfit options all day.  I'm not going to wear a traditional cheongsan (qi pao) as it might be a bit too formal for the event.  Instead, I'm opting for a simple dress accented with black lace gloves, black birdcage veil, and red lipstick.  Curled hair is a must.  I wish my grandmother lived in LA so I could dig through her vintage wear while listening to her stories about glamorous Shanghai in the 30s.

I heart my birthplace.  

Have a fabulous weekend!
