Thigh High Thursday – 2011July14

As I look forward to a few days of reprieve from my daily grind with a visit to my other home city, I thought I’d commemorate it with another CheongsamXTHT post.

As a refresher, here’s a quick wiki about this very exotic looking and very visually appeasing outfit:

The cheongsam is a body-hugging (modified in Shanghai) one-piece Chinese dress for women; the male version is the changshan. It is known in Mandarin Chinese as the qípáo (旗袍) Wade-Giles ch’i-p’ao, and is also known in English as a mandarin gown. The stylish and often tight-fitting cheongsam or qipao (chipao) that is most often associated with today was created in the 1920s in Shanghai and was made fashionable by socialites and upperclass women.[1]

And so moving on, enjoy the pictures. :3 Meanwhile, I’ve got a plane to catch!
