Everywhere we went in Rongshui, we met these lovely ladies in their beautiful costumes,
so we just had to have a wee shopping trip to see what we could find.......
The traditional black/purple/turquoise for the older ladies....
and the new Golden/brown for the younger generation.
We just loved them!
The beautiful coloured headscarves!
Sadly, all of the jackets we tried on were too small for the Western frame :-)
And I did consider having one made to my size...but it was very expensive!
Then we spied these lovely little numbers....
They are considered to be ladies "undergarments"
and are worn just like this
tied at the back with a ribbon
like a little vest top
The beautiful embroidery just showing under a jacket is very appealing
and could be worn anywhere with a black jacket/cardigan
one size fitting ALL!
and they are available for £8 each.
Your very own traditional Miao embroidered piece which can be worn so easily.
First come, first served!
