This coat is definitely one of the most beautiful things I own. I never wear yellow, mostly it doesn’t suit my skin tone, but this coat is just so special somehow the yellow is so rich that it looks fine of my skin. I ordered the coat while I was visiting Vietnam, it is made by a Vietnamese designer of traditional dress, Si Hoang.  Each coat takes 6 weeks to make by hand.  All the pattern on the coat is either hand painted or hand beaded. It is a marvel in real life.  This kind of craft is really couture. I want to wear it everyday but I have too much respect for the delicacy of it to do that. So instead now I’m home I have hung it on the mirror outside my room so that I can look at it everyday.

    I saw you on Vanessa Jackman’s blog and recognized your coat immediately. You look beautiful! I am American but have traveled to Saigon a lot. I have had many things made at Si Hoang also! I have had a coat like this, but in black and bright hand-painted colors for about 6 years and have never worn it, but you inspire me! I am getting it out and putting it on!! Thank you!
