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 =)

No alterations eh? That's awesome. I would definitely like to see that dress in action. :o) You will indulge and take pictures, no? Please. ;)

Or maybe .. just maybe .. some of our imaginations shouldn't be left to roam wild. =P

Hehe! Holy cheongsam back!

I'm very happy you can fit into a dress! I don't know why...

I guess it's because I NEVER could fit into a cheongsam, and I can only live my unfulfilled dreams through you.

Hahaha, I've seen pictures of you, you make a better looking girl than I do =) =)

It's all special effects, baby, plus some paper towels to give me an A cup.

After my dress-wearing experience, I felt so VULNERABLE in the back from all the groping people did of me. I wanted to turn Catholic.

Happily, I wasn't asked to wear low-riders. :p

I'll hop on the bandwagon and demand(?) pictures as well.

But a different line of pictures. (Why did it have to end up sounding like that?) Pictures of you wearing the cheongsam around the house. Maybe plopped down on the couch gazing at the television with a dead expression, the remote in one hand, the other hand reaching into a big bowl of popcorn, candy wrappers all over, and a number of scattered empty beer bottles on the floor.

All of the eager and anticipation for this prestigious dress and you use it for the very casual and very fine art of loafing.

Aigh... I'm no good at loafing without a photographer telling me what to do... the pressure =O *sweat*

It does take some practice, but it's (un)surprisingly easy. You just think of all of the things you can accomplish and put them off for later.
