This is a traditional Chinese dress popular in the 1930's called a Cheongsam. This is the second one I have found at the same Goodwill and they both appear to be handmade. The first one is a super cool shiny lavender color- you can see it here. This one is a more traditional Chinese printed fabric but they are both equally amazing in my book!
I have to be honest and tell you I wore this dress for the photos and I will probably never wear it again because it is so tight I can barely move or even breathe! I had to laugh because when I was researching the history of these dresses it said that a woman designed them because what they were wearing to work was too uncomfortable! What were they wearing- straight jackets?! I wish it was a little more comfortable because I think it would be great to wear on a date or to a wedding. But, I would have to loose about 10 lbs in my booty area and that is not going to happen because I kinda like my curves!
I also love that Lady Gaga is embracing her new fuller figure! It doesn't mean that you never diet or exercise. It just means that you love your body no matter what!
Do you embrace you body's shape or to you constantly get down on yourself about it?
