I've been rummaging my mom's closet for her old baju kurungs.
My mom has a HUGE collection of baju kurungs, even after giving away loads already. She loves her materials; silk, sateen, raw silk, japanese cotton. You name it and she has it in somewhere in her closet. Now you know who I take up after :p
Anyways, my mom still keeps a small collection of her old kurungs. Most are the kurung modern that we're used to now - puffed sleeves and boat necks. But somehow hers has a very vintage feel to it.
And the great thing is? They all fit me perfectly, as if they are made for me!
I just LOVE wearing my mom's kurung from the yesteryears. I LOVE that my body is the exact ofmy mom's when she was my age. That's just crazy awesome!
I want to keep and take extra care of these kurungs. I may just pass it down to my future daughter (s) one fine day. That'll be a great tradition.
