Oriental Pieces

About 15 years ago, my Nanny and Grandad went away to China for a holiday. They purchased these two tops whilst there, but they haven't been touched for all this time. The other day, I was presented with them still in their plastic packaging and folded to perfection. They are made out of 100% silk and are hand embroidered. They are both truly beautiful pieces. When trying them on I decided to take some pictures to share with you guys - I apologise that the fabric is quite creased! What do you expect when they've been folded up for fifteen years?! I will obviously give them an iron if I decide to wear either of them one day. I was lucky to fit into them because Chinese sizes are very small! Although these oriental tops don't mix with my usual style, I may be able to incorporate them into an outfit one day - I think they look great with my green jeans! But I certainly appreciate the time and effort that has gone into creating these pieces, and think they deserve a little bit of air and wear!
