'Qipao LoveR' is a dedicated series on 'Walking in May' that features Qipao or Cheongsam lovers, collectors, designers, artists, tailors, makers and celebrate their love for the Cheongsam, and hopefully empower as well as inspire other admirers to wear the Qipao without fear. It was an idea inspired by the ongoing Qipao Love series and sparked into existence when I was featured on the 'Queens of Vintage' (Vintage Queen no. 155). Running as a feature post, Cheongsam enthusiasts can share their thoughts as well as creativity, and nominate other Cheongsam lovers to be featured. True lives, true tales! (If you happen to know an amazingly fabulous fellow Qipao enthusiast, do drop me a line at: may[at]walkinginmay[dot]com)

Qipao Love: Part 5 ~ How-To choose and wear a Qipao (Cheongsam) that will love your frame!

A little warning is probably in order my this will be a rather comprehensive How-To Qipao post! I will try to incorporate my own knowledge as well as what I researched through time, to create a rough but helpful guide for ladies who might want to attempt wearing the Qipao! Why do I say attempt? In today's fast paced life the Qipao has become a rather occasional dress even for a faithful admirer like me and I can understand why it might not be the most popular attire in the world, but I also know that many ladies who admire the Qipao might resist the idea of wearing it because of different barriers. Being a lover of the Qipao me I know the fearful qualms and muffin top resistance to wearing a Qipao all too well.....whether it is a matter of figure, budget, impression, style, occasion, look or finding the excuse to wear a Qipao, I hope to be able to offer some help towards a solution and ask that you forgive me if I am too long winded. The Qipao really i…

Qipao Love: Part 1~ From Qi Pao to evolution of a dress about women!

Worry not, if you are still using the address it should automatically divert to the blog and there is also a new e-mail address if you should like to drop me a line to say hello or ask any questions;! What better way to celebrate this transition than to start on one of my favourite topics.....with Part One of my "Qipao Love (All about Qipao)" series of posts!

Throughout my blog over the two years, I have mentioned the Chinese Qipao dress (also known as Cheongsam in Cantonese) quite a few times, especially during the run-up to Chinese New Year. Having a self confessed love of the Qipao, as some of you darlings who have been following may know, I can usually be spotted wearing the Qipao throughout the 15 days of Chinese New Year festivities and have been adding one or two new Qipao dresses t…

Qipao Love: Part 25 ~ What to wear to a Chinese wedding tea ceremony?

In all weddings and almost every culture, there are different traditions or themes that should be considered as well as respected by guests. How traditional or cultural a wedding is, will depend on how traditional the couple or their families happen to be, as well as what their ideal wedding looks like. There is of course no one plan to suit all and hence no ultimate wedding guest guideline exists, but I can offer a little more perspective from what I understand about Chinese weddings and the experience of being a part of my sister's wedding a few months ago. My sister Vicky got married in Singapore during the month of March, and had a wedding spanning over two days fusing both Western styles as well as Chinese traditions. Being quite relaxed she had mentioned to guest that she did not mind the colour or choice of clothing they would like to wear. So I opted to wear the Qipao; a knee length blush pink with elaborate flower knotted buttons silk Cheongsam for the tea ceremony in the…
