Today’s #JoeyWorldProject comes all the way from #CostaRica 🇨🇷 from our new friend Dana who lives in San Jose, Costa Rica. Costa Rica is made up of seven different provinces: San Jose, Cartago, Alajuela, Heredia, Guanacaste, Puntarenas, and Limon. Each province has its own unique variation of the traditional costumes for men and women. This particular dress was custom designed and made for Joey from a store called Tienda Paco in Guanacaste where Dana’s mother’s family is originally from. It has a ruffled blouse with a flowery shiny skirt (gola) that goes to the ankles. The skirt usually comes in very bright colors. The hair is typically worn in a braid with a flower. These outfits are usually worn at festivities, dances, cultural events and celebrations. I can just imagine how beautifully these skirts move when the women wear them to dance! Thank you so much Dana and Tienda Paco for gifting us this stunning dress. This skirt is EVERYTHING! The book about your national parks gave me a glimpse of how gorgeous Costa Rica and I’m so grateful to have it in our home library. I have many friends who visited Costa Rica and came back saying only the best things about this country so I’m excited to visit one day especially to see the outdoors and of course to try the famous coffee there. One of my favorite coffee shops here in Los Angeles area is @copa_vida who gets their coffee beans from Costa Rica so I’m already familiar with how delicious the coffee is…but still. I’ve got to get to Costa Rica one day soon and try it for myself! #puravida

Another addition to the #JoeyWorldProject! This beautiful #sarongkebaya (worn by the Peranakan in Singapore) was gifted to us by one of our fans from #Singapore 🇸🇬 Thank you so much Eve! 😘I must one day visit this beautiful island-city-country (They are all three!) and try their famous chicken rice. I'm so in love with this dress. So amazed at how colorful and intricate the embroidery is. Love that it's very bright and floral too. 🌺🌼🌸 Anyone here from Singapore? 😊
SIDE NOTE: After reading your comments, I felt I should write this. Yes, the kebaya is also worn in Indonesia, Malaysia and some other countries but because Singapore is a nation of many diverse races and cultures (and because there is not one specific national outfit), this kebaya can also represent Singapore. I will definitely do the other countries (if we receive the outfits!) but let's please remain respectful for Singapore as that was the intent for this project. Thank you! 😘💕

#Repost from @lauraiz with @regram.app ... Today is Afghan New Year so here is another #JoeyWorldProject entry representing #Afghanistan 🇦🇫! I received this beautiful Afghan dress from our new friend Khatera and her family Ali, Jaala, Ozzy and Asher. We were so honored to have received this stunning dress which was lovingly handmade by Khatera’s mother-in-law's sister who lives in the Ghazni province in Afghanistan. Even the beads were all originally made! In the words of Khatera, “I like to believe with every stitching there’s a story in it.” Their family is from the northeast (Panjshir) and are descendants of Russian/European folk. While most Afghan dresses vary from tribe to tribe or city to city, I was told there are always 3 parts to the outfit. The chador (scarf), firak (dress) and partoog (loose trousers). When I received this in the mail, I couldn’t take my eyes off of all of the intricate handwork that went into this dress. Absolutely beautiful! Khatera wrote to me about how she and her husband immigrated to the US during the Russian/Afghan war that raged on from 1979-89 to live a better life in America. I love what she wrote to me in her letter, “Even though we assimilate ourselves in the American culture, we will never forget where we are from and how our parents sacrificed to be here and to be an upstanding American citizen.” That’s been my story as well, along with millions of other American immigrants. Thank you so much Khatera and family for this precious gift. Happy Afghan New Year! #nowruz #afghandukht

Happy Norwegian Constitution Day! 🇳🇴 Today’s #JoeyWorldProject was put together with the help of my dear friend Maddie and her mother Victoria who lives in #Norway. Today is Norway’s Independence Day (May 17), also known as Constitution Day, syttende mai (“seventeenth May”), or #Nasjonaldagen (The National Day). The Constitution of Norway was signed on May 17, 1814 which declared Norway to be an independent kingdom from Sweden & Denmark. On this day every year all over Norway, children walk in celebratory parades. Each elementary school district arranges its own parade with marching bands between schools. The parade takes the children through the community, often making stops at homes of senior citizens, war memorials, etc. Wish I could see these parades in person! Maddie, take us to Norway soon! Thanks to her mother Victoria, we at least have a part of Norway with us in the form of this adorable miniature #bunad which is Norway’s national costume. These dresses come in a variety of colors, fabrics, embroidery and jewelry. Each represent different regions in Norway and traditionally you get a real bunad at the age of 14. If you are lucky you can inherit yours from your grandma or have one made by her! This bunad fit Joey so perfectly and I just want her to walk around everywhere in it ALWAYS. Thank you so much Maddie and Victoria. Happy Independence Day! #syttendemai #nasjonaldag #mittnorge #norge

I am so excited to see this! I have been waiting for it since seeing it in @lauraiz instastories! Such an inspiring Mom, and Joey is the most adorable baby out there! Andrew and I watch Joey on instastories, and it really helps remind me on bad days through this pregnancy the amazing little bundles that come out of it! (Bring back the WOP @lauraiz - those were our fave!) #canada150

Oh Canada! Today’s #JoeyWorldProject costume comes from our new friend Shipra & her baby Misha who live in #Toronto, #Canada! 🇨🇦Shipra, I LOVED the package you sent with the maple syrup, ketchup chips, chocolates and the Hortons cups. I especially loved your card and the cute illustration of how to dress her up in this impressive Royal Canadian Mounted Police (#RCMP) uniform. I tried to do my best with the gardening bee hat you sent. Hope it looks somewhat close to the mountie felt hat! Seeing this uniform reminded me of my happy memories visiting Toronto and Quebec when I was a kid and more recently Vancouver and Banff. It’s a country that I absolutely love. Not only is the nature view so breathtakingly beautiful but the people are the nicest I’ve ever encountered. Literally everyone we met was extremely friendly and helpful to us clueless travelers. We’ll never forget their hospitality and generosity. Although Canada doesn’t have a “national dress,” this RCMP uniform is the most recognized Canadian attire so I am so honored to have this in our world series. I know for sure we will be making our way up to Canada again with Joey. Hopefully this year as we got the Discovery Pass which will get us into all the national parks in Canada for free! (You can get one at parkscanada.gc.ca!) Btw, July 1st is a monumental day for Canada this year as they will be celebrating their 150th anniversary, the Sesquicentennial! I’ll be keeping my eye out on the happy celebrations! #ohcanada

Happy Mother’s Day! I saved this #JoeyWorldProject costume from #Korea 🇰🇷 for today in honor of my sweet mother and mother-in-law who are both Korean. This beautiful #hanbok (#한복) was sent by Heather from @seoulfulfamily. Thank you so much Heather. We’re so thrilled to have this hanbok and hope it can be like an heirloom to be passed down after Joey! The hanbok dress typically consists of an upper garment called jeogori worn with a wraparound skirt called chima. It’s been said that the open arms of the jeogori represent the warmth and embrace of the Korean people while the voluminous skirts symbolize space and freedom. Hanboks come in different colors which represented different symbols and status in life back in the day. For instance the color red symbolized good fortune and wealth so the color was often used for women’s wedding garments. The color yellow represented the center of the universe, which was often worn by royalty. Indigo symbolized constancy, which was often used for the ladies of the court and court officials. Embroidery of plants, animals and other elements of nature also symbolized different meanings. For instance, peonies meant honor & wealth, lotus flowers meant nobility, and bats & pomegranates meant a desire for children. Joey here is wearing a gulle on her head which was worn by children ages 1-5 years old during the late Joseon period. She’s also wearing a gold ring and bracelet which my mother bought for Joey for her first birthday, which is a typical tradition for babies turning one in Korea. I’ve actually never worn a hanbok before but it fills my heart with joy seeing Joey in one. I'm itching for the day we can take Joey to visit Korea, my motherland, for the first time. I’m so glad I can share this image today for my dear mothers who I love so much. I love you mommies! #대한민국 #한복드레스

🙋 I'm so excited to share this with all of you. Laura Izumikawa @lauraiz, an American photograher (and Internet sensation ☺) has been making some amazing, creative and fun outfits for her little daughter since Joey was just a few months old. Recently, Laura has started a #JoeyWorldProject. She has asked to send her traditional costumes for Joey from all around the world. I'm excited to become a part of this wonderful project! I sent Laura our traditional Ukrainian costume. Now the photo is up :) I'm very happy to represent Ukraine and help bring a part of our tradition to everyone in such a fun and adorable way 😍 Thank you Laura 💕

Today’s #JoeyWorldProject comes our new friend Olga all the way from #Kyiv, #Ukraine 🇺🇦! Thank you so much Olga for the gifts. The book you sent is so stunning! We will truly cherish them forever. This traditional dress is from the western part of Ukraine. The matching headpiece with the little pompoms is called a chiltse. The shirt is called #vyshyvanka and it carries meaning behind each part of the embroidery. It represents health, life, happiness, etc. The bottom is a skirt with similar ornaments also with specific meaning behind it all. Olga wrote to me saying that even about 10 years ago it wasn't easy finding these traditional costumes especially for children. The options were very limited at the time but now they are in high demand. Olga told me that many people, both men and women, wear these traditional shirts every day to work, university, meetings and even going out with friends. It’s awesome to see the Ukrainian people embrace this part of their history and culture in this way. I’m so honored that Joey has this dress! Coincidentally I am posting this hours away from their "Victory Day Over Nazism In World War II” today. I had no idea until I googled current events in Ukraine last night. There are many other countries that also celebrate and honor the lives lost (May 8-9) in their own ways but I’m honored I can post this one for Ukraine today. Thank you Olga!

We’re kicking off this week with this gorgeous outfit from our new friend Macarena who lives in Barcelona, #Spain! 🇪🇸 Wow thank you so much Macarena! I love how colorful the #JoeyWorldProject has become! This gorgeous #Gitana outfit (aka flamenco outfit) is attributed to the Gitanos (Roma people of Spain) but now it's generally thought of as typically Andalusian (southern Spain). There are two forms of this dress: one worn by #flamenco dancers and the other worn as a day dress. This one definitely looks more like a flamenco dress! I was so excited to dress Joey up in this outfit especially in those heels. I can’t even handle it. Don't know if you caught her the other day on our Stories of her walking around in them but it was the cutest thing ever. I know FOR SURE we will be visiting Spain one day (we’re gonna come see you @javierabad & @pablobeglez!). I love to watch travel shows and anytime they do an episode on Spain, it makes me want to drop everything and hop on the next plane. ¡Viva #España! 🇪🇸 🥘🍮💃🏻⚽️🎶

- Today’s #JoeyWorldProject comes all the way from #Pakistan 🇵🇰 from our amazing new friend Maria who runs an non-profit org called Women’s Digital League (@wdl_pk) which seeks to empower Pakistani women by training and connecting them to online work. Maria wrote to me that they promote economic empowerment for women this way as "it’s really difficult for women in Pakistan to go outside to work." “Through the Joey World Project,” she wrote, "I’d like to bring a softer image of Pakistan and show a new side of Pakistani women achieving amazing things.” She also wrote that she didn’t want publicity for herself or for WDL but that she just wanted to send this dress simply to do it for her fellow #Pakistani women…but I just can’t help but share about her and her incredible work as it inspires me deeply! Thank you Maria and WDL for all you’re doing every day. It’s people like you who stirs my heart and gives me hope! This gorgeous #shalwarkameez is a version of the national dress of Pakistan and was custom-designed for Joey by Pakistani designer Sana Arif @seap.bysanaarif. Can I just say, WOW! This dress was made in pure silk and chiffon with adda and gotta embellishments. Gotta is a gold or silver ribbon that’s used in traditional dresses from the subcontinent including countries such as India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Adda got its name from the huge wooden embroidery frames that the cloth is fitted on and combinations of beads, sequins, diamantes, silk thread and mirrors are designed upon. The ring-toed slippers are called #kolhapuri and they go back to the 13th century and have made a come-back in Pakistan with designers giving them a more modern look. I believe the scarf is worn more often on the shoulder but I decided to photograph Joey with the scarf on her head because I wanted to showcase just how beautiful the scarf is. What a stunning piece of art this outfit is! I just want to frame it and hang it in our home! Thank you so much Maria and Sana for this precious treasure. You have no idea what this means to our family. 💕
