This is what I wore to school today. I received this dress in the mail several months ago from a close friend in China. It was wrapped up in the strangest little cylindrical package. Ever since I opened it, I've really loved the print and the traditional Chinese shape, but I have never really known how to wear it. That is, up until I saw this Teen Vogue picture of a similar dress adorned with funky, cutting-edge accessories.This is the Teen Vogue photograph that I got the idea from. It was featured in a spread called "Global Citizens". The whole idea of the shoot was the international culture aspect of many Spring/Summer 2010 collections, but as always, it has a touch of Teen Vogue flair.
