What to Wear

I love Asian ethnic garments and would love to dress for my Vietnamese dinner in a traditional ao dai, but I don?t own one. I may be able to find one at a little ethnic clothing store in downtown Napa called Inti. But if they don?t have anything like that, I have lots of colorful sarongs and comfortable halter tops to go with, which would probably be much more practical and comfortable for working in the kitchen. And since I will be preparing and serving several courses, I won?t have time to change between cooking and sitting down to eat. Looks like I?ll definitely be needing an apron.
