For my baby sister Larissa to come back from her travels in Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
And what did she come back with? A suitcase full of vintage clothes (more on that later), custom clothes and magnets (love souvenirs).
She had this dress custom made in Hoi An, Vietnam. The bottom part is made of Vietnamese silk in a colour I once heard described as Indian teal.
She also had her boots custom made in the same city. Leather and lovely.
Her red bangle is from an entirely different part of the world. She got it in Kyiv, Ukraine (this gal has been to 28 countries — 29 if you count Vatican City).
A custom-made silk dress and piles of bangles are beautiful. But when they remind you of your adventures? Doesn’t get any better than that.
Wouldn’t you agree?
