Sometimes I bring clothes back with me from home, or my mom mails me a nice outfit, while these things last a long time and look great, they never totally look Uyghur. The best way to look local and fit in is to wear clothes purchased here. It also means you have to put up with local level quality. Today my socks are mended (twice), my purse and my jeans are superglued together and my boots are tied by a string. Despite all that my friends think I look great.
