Q: Chinese women like the bling bling?

Whether it's a pair of high heels, a dress, or a shirt, it doesn't matter. Every article of clothing has a ton of patterns, accessories or details. Sometimes it bothers me, like when I tried to find a pair of high heels. Although, I did eventually give into it, and buy a pair of shoes that look like the kind little girls wear when they want to be a princess. You know, with bows and sparkles and polka dots. The other day I saw some really cute skirts, but maybe they would be a bit too short. I've heard some of the guys on here say they like the bling-bling. Really? Even when they wear shoes that don't match their clothing?

I think it's cute. It portrays a kind of innocence that coupled with cute English is sexy.It is necessary not to go too far and risk looking like a clown.

Just think of the first time your mom let you pick out the clothes you were going to wear out in public. You though they were so cool but everyone with a western sense of style knew otherwise. People that was you walking around with such a proud smile of your face that day, either worked hard to hold back their giggles or just shook their head at you. It's basically like that.

I think the mismatch of clothes is an attempt to add more diversity to a population that has similar genetic traits.

I dont like the jeans with all the sparkley shit or lots of cuts or creases. The heels are Ok and the T/shirts at times also have too many spangles, and then you add to that with some English writing that makes no sense. If it is only to add to the visual then it does niot need writing, but again I bet there are lots of English speakers with Chinese or Japanese symbols on their cloths or in tatts that no meaning. What women in China need to understand is the less is more approach is all that is needed if you are attractive and if you aren't then all the bling only makes it look worse.

"A lot of people do"? she says? the vast majority of females I would say aged from 2 to 45. If you don't wear this bling bling stuff I am not going to take any notice of you!! I have yet to see a shop selling plain T-shirts and jeans. I'm almost tempted to buy a pair myself. Bring on the bling!

Try Taobao. I am a clothes designer and when I was shopping for shoes for a show and for my gf, I found very tasteful pumps and other various styles there. Just be careful and make sure that they give refunds. Chinese shops are not known for their good customer service.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
