With the arrival of the above birthday card from my darling daughter, Xian, coupled with my sister-in-law, Kristie’s, fantastic blog, Style Me Mommy, an idea was spawned. Being that I was getting a night out on the town and that I love fashion, why not spend my 34th birthday paying tribute to Taiwan’s night market culture? So, that is exactly what I am going to do.
Next Thursday, I will be making the trek to Taiwan’s famous night market: Feng Jia. I intend to bring with me exactly 3400 NTD (a little over $100 USD) in honor of my 34th birthday. This 3400 NTD must be used to dress me the entire winter break, all 17 days of it. Prepare yourselves for short shorts, boots, and bling that won’t stop. The 17 Days of 3400 NTD is quickly approaching. Stay tuned for an introduction to Taiwan’s night market culture.
(Fair warning to all: Taiwan’s fashion is a tad bit different than that of the good ole Pacific Northwest. Very few fashion rules apply. Plaid and polka dots? no problem. T-shirts with the word “excrement” written across the derriere? Okay. Micro mini shorts with an over-sized Minny Mouse sweater? Of course! As far as I can tell, the only rule is: the shorter, the better, just remember to add tights.)
