Cluttercast: Chinese silk jacket
Like so many other things sold in the US, this jacket was Made in China. But unlike so many other things, this was also bought in China.
It was before China was westernized. I was on a trip to the Far East and we took a one-day trip into China from Hong Kong. I had maybe an hour to spend in a Chinese department store, and I raced through like a crazed woman on a mission. I bought this because it reminded me of the Mao jackets that everyone wore in China.
I don’t think I ever wore the jacket, and I felt very cheated only having that one hour for shopping. But I figured someday I would return to China for a longer trip. I haven’t made it back yet but when I do, I’ll make sure to allot way more time for shopping.
(padded silk jacket, bust approximately 35″, hips approximately 36″)
