HUAT are you wearing this Chinese New Year?

Haha! Pardon the wordplay. I just can’t help it! To answer the question myself, anything and everything red of course!

Besides being grandma’s favorite color, the fiery hue also symbolizes good fortune and joy. I definitely need some good luck for the rest of the year as I embark on my new business venture. Hehe!

2018 has been one hell of a ride. I’ve been burying my head in work almost everyday since I got back from Sydney in early January. From styling shoots in the studio, creating new content for the blog to preparations for the new business. I think I’ve accomplished more these few weeks than I did in the whole of last year. Haha!

Well, it isn’t all doom and gloom. Despite the unforgiving schedule, I’m still doing what I love, having fun and making sure I’m wearing an amazing closet while tackling the challenges at work. 😛

I hope it’s the same for you too! Let’s all promise to always stay inspired in creating a life we love, shall we?

Okay, back to today’s subject – Chinese New Year get-ups!

I have a bunch of cool dresses with mandarin collars but I decided to go for an edgier vintage look for the festive season. Tweed is definitely making a comeback and here’s my take on Coco Chanel’s signature look!

Psst! To add a little punch in my garb, I paired the tweed skirt with this unique cropped top that features a scrunch petal hem detail.

Keep scrolling and go vintage wandering with me!
