From top to bottom: Mina Stone, Rachel Comey, Mercy, and Steven Alan, all on sale at Stuart and Wright.

What Cambodia lacks in shopping opportunities, it makes up in its many custom tailor shops, where you can get a dress made, with perfectly-matched measurements, for about $15 USD. I took what was intended to be a leisurely stroll through Olympic Market this weekend and was overwhelmed by the choice of fabrics. I had to step away from handling all the printed silk fabrics and force myself to think about what I really wanted and what would actually work in this environment, both for work and for play.

I'm glad I did. Overbuying avoided. I haven't worked out the specifics yet, but I'd be happy to have some iteration of these frocks.

Don't get me started on the custom shoemakers . . . maybe next time.


  1. Anyone(relatively speaking) can buy a dress from a place like Stuart and Wright- but getting a dress custom tailored, out of fabric that is not probably available here in the States- so jealous!

  2. sure, sure, rub it in, why don't you?! :)

  3. I will post the results!

    Becki: I miss our coffee chats!
