Starting off the lunar new year with a dash of red cheongsam and casual, baggy jeans. Didn't want to overdress, but didn't want to underdress either. How is everyone's day going? Mine consisted of going around to meet the family and getting lucky money - angpao. A lot of what I got will go right into my savings which is a surprise since I always spend most of the money I get from Chinese New Year but this year I really do have to start saving up some money.

I haven't worn one of these since a long time ago and I forgot how beautiful the details can be. The gold against the yellow and the silk... Well a huge reminder of my Chinese heritage.
I love these blue suede heels I got from Zara. They're a really comfortable height - one of my shortest heels - so I can wear them for a long period of time without feeling like my toes are going to fall off.
So I wish everyone a wonderful year full of good health and fortune (SO CHINESE RIGHT NOW), GONG XI FA CAI EVERYONE!
