Often, I’m drowning in a wardrobe sea of khaki and sensible shoes when I travel. It’s refreshing when I stumble upon the unexpected in exotic fashion. Nothing makes you regret your Safari Jones more than sitting next to a beauty swaddled in a neon sari. The United States of Trendwear knows no bounds. You can find it in sacred temples and on remote mountain paths.

Perhaps these tourist castoffs are helping unite the world for a common cause. Or, maybe Nike really is trying to take over the world.

Meet me: Sheilah Bright, a sucker for a story. I've been a journalist for 39 years after first publishing at age 14. Do the math. No, don't. My work has appeared in hundreds of newspapers and magazines. I spent 18 years writing advertising for People and TIME magazine. When I'm not traveling abroad, I bounce along the backroads of Oklahoma searching for some golden story nuggets as a contributing editor for This Land Press and Oklahoma Today.
