Holy Cheongsam From Shanghai, Batman!!!

weather: sunny
outside: 5°C
mood: happy
Holy CRAP!!!

The dress that I ordered, IS HERE. It was sent via UPS from Shanghai yesterday. I had it delivered to Work because I didn't want to miss the delivery guy.

When I pulled it out of the packaging, it looked way too small. I thought uh, oh shit... and I ran to the ladies' room to try it on.

Mother of GOD, am I ever TINY. O_o

It fits. Perfectly. Shoulders, sleeves, chest, waist, hips, EVERYTHING. I won't have to get it altered at all. I just need it drycleaned.

I was right, the workmanship isn't fantastic and the picture does make it look marginally better. But it's not too bad. I'm happy with it and I will definitely be wearing it to the wedding in March. It was totally worth it to me to not have to develop cortisol poisoning go shopping.

And I now have a something really nice that I can take to a qi-pao tailor to have another one custom made in the same style with different fabrics, colours and notions, if I so choose =)
