i'm attending a formal, western-style evening wedding in early may, and am interested in wearing a knee length chinese dress (cheongsam/qipao).
due to some skin issues on my torso, this style's high neckline and short sleeves elegantly conceal it. however, the dress includes 2 side slits along each leg, for ease of movement and sexiness, lol.
i am looking into a quiet emerald green color, no flashy brocade embroidery, cap sleeves...something that highlights good bits/downplays bad bits, yet doesn't outshine the bride.
has anyone worn a dress like this before? is this an appropriate style, given the occasion and my special needs? if you live in the CA bay area, do you have any shopping advice?
