The jusi and inabel baro’t saya I wore to a Filipiniana-themed function are Manang Carning’s. We don’t have the same height, but who would have guessed they were borrowed. If I weren’t pressed for time, I’d still choose the same traditional dress, but probably would have added a tapis. Paired them with my Jeffrey Campbell pseudo bakya. Some things just look good together, like they’re made for each other.
Can’t we bring back Manang Biday?
