Zam Instyle :: Hmong New Year & Silver Lining

Hmong Outfit

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I’ve been absent from blogging and social media for a while due to personal reasons. Something that has been helpful in keeping my mind busy is getting ready for Hmong New Year. I have a lot of projects that I want to finish before December. I’ll try to post about one of them by next week. These tough times renewed my love for cross-stitch embroidery and remind me of my own obsessive tendencies.

I’ve been a fan of Hmong Sister Shop‘s designs for a while now and I was ecstatic to hear about Zam Instyle. Even though I would spend a lot of time admiring the pictures on Facebook, I had some second thoughts about ordering from overseas. Shipping would expensive and I might not like it enough. Would it be worth it? Also, I have to admit, I have a lot of Hmong clothes already so do I really need more?

Zam InStyle is a company that strives to become a distributor to connect overseas sellers with customer’s in the states. They sell and rent Hmong clothes. I loved that idea and jumped at the chance to help them with their inventory shoot. In the midst of difficult times, I needed a little emotional break. Dolling up and getting dressed in Hmong clothes always brightens my day.

Dressing up in Hmong clothes always back fond memories of my great-aunt. It reminds me of the past when my great aunt would request us to come over, get dressed in Hmong clothes, and take pictures. I miss how her face would light up.

This is one of my favorite outfits. I loved the royal blue and the embroidery. Personally, I would pair it up with one of my custom made white skirts instead since it flairs out more. I can’t wait to get a hat similar to this though.

This outfit reminds me of one that Yasmi wore before. I found out that I’m not too fond of these box pleats but I loved how colorful this outfit is.

The inventory is quite diverse with a lot of modern designs. I always joke around that I’m an old lady stuck in a young body so I prefer more traditional designs but I love seeing new designs.
