Qi Bao Zhen, an ancient town located in western Shanghai, is a fascinating blend of old and new where vendors sell all manner of enticing and sometimes outrageous food, whacky and unusual gifts, and unique clothing and homeware. Winding narrow streets, a golden temple and romantic curving bridges make up this little town with a history spanning over 1000 years. If you're heading to Shanghai at any point, it's worth a visit and nowhere near as touristy as other traditional areas such as Yu Yuan (Yu Gardens). You'll be unlikely to spot many other non-locals here.
I felt a little bit like a First Lady in this outfit so to modernise it I wore a fishtail braid (an instant bad hair day fix, by the way), a slick of red lipstick and some vampish lace up heels to add an element of youth to an otherwise modest and simple outfit.
