So I went to get my outfits from the tailor the other day. It was so disappointing! The shirt was way to wide and gave me no shape, I just looked like a big thick tree trunk! The pants had the wrong colour flowers stictched into the bottom and instead of a nice cool sea green, I got hot pink! Plus, they're on both legs when I thought it would just be one. The style of the pants is also really horrendous. I specifically said I didn't like high waists, I'd prefer them to sit more on my hips. What did I get? High waisted Urkel pants! With these hideous pleats that bulge out making it look like I've got an ass in the front. ARGH! The ass I've got in the back is plenty thanks, I don't need another! As for the dress, it needed to be taken in a bit, but the traditional Qipao style was very nice. Unfortunately, I no longer like the material. I mean, i like it, just not for me. Instead I am bitterly jealous over my friend's dress which is the other material I was debating on. It's soooo beautiful! This is why I always take hours to choosesomething, because I need to be sure. Look what happens when I make these hasty decisions!
So here is my dilemma now. I am considering getting another dress made, same style, different material. Maybe the deep red like my friend has, or maybe looking for a nice black. The red is gorgeous, but the stupid dress I have now is also red (but with small goldeny flowers on it). Apparently nobody has black Qipaos, but only Chinese people will know that, no one back home will be any the wiser. What should I do? I want to go home with one dress that I'm happy with. And the lady has agreed to make it for a very reasonable price. Material + tailor will be about 250RMB. So that's like C$37. Pretty good. I wish I didn't have this dress, then I would get the dark red and a black one. But that's just silliness now. How many Chinese dresses can a white girl reasonably have! Yeesh! I go back there tomorrow, what should I do? Help help!
