I’m glad I am getting more wear with my Hmong pieces. Nowadays, the variety is so wide and mass production has made them more available, especially online, but … only the handmade ones really hold a place in my heart. I do enjoy the patterns and colors of machine-made needlework but nothing beats an item with personal history.
Skirt: Hmong wrap skirt from vendor at a flea market
Top: Ann Taylor button up (old, similar, similar)
Shoes: Nine West Speak-up Flats (also available here)
Watch: Fossil Small Perfect Boyfriend Three-Hand Stainless Steel Watch
I picked up this skirt in Minnesota from a Hmong vendor who orders her textiles from Thailand. I just love the colors and the cross-stitching. Again, if you missed my previous post, I spoke of how incorporating Hmong wear into my daily style allows me to express myself more accurately. You can tell a lot about a person by the way they dress (in addition to how they’re groomed and how they carry themselves). We’re all basically walking pieces of art.
Here are some more modern suggestions available similar to Hmong skirts:
Happy hump day! ^_^
