Now that I have been in Vietnam for a week and a half....a LONG week and a half...I have started to get used to the heat, the stares and the cultural hurtles. What I don't think I will ever get used to is the amazing silk stores on every corner!
I knew Vietnam was renowned for it's silk, but could never have expected so many patterns, textures and so many colors. I know what you're thinking, "thanks Britt I really want a LiTshade made out of an amazing silk and from Vietnam, but I don't think I could suffer the heat to go get some of my own." Well, of course you know, with Dawn being my amazing friend I would have to bring her back something from my trip and why not bring her back some of these one-of-a-kind pieces of silk?
Now don't think you can get this silk now, I won't be back for another week and a half but until then go visit Dawn at the shop and begin to think about what shapes and sizes you want for your next LiTshade ,you might just realize you need more then just one.
Side Note: Unfortunately, I haven't had my camera when I have passed these silk stands yet, so I figured an image of Nha Trang for now would be just as good.
