This beautiful silk cheongsam from China is our Object of the Week!

Reminiscent to us of spring and warmer days, we couldn’t resist sharing this gorgeous dress with you all. The beautifully embroidered peacock is a traditional symbol of dignity and beauty. The dress is completely lined with pink silk tabby woven fabric.
