They say red means good luck

After almost 5 years, I am so happy that I can finally celebrate Lunar New Year with my whole family again. Thus, I'm wearing two bright colors that represent happiness and good luck in Chinese culture, yellow and red. This outfit is also inspired by my yellow Loubs.




Among all the things that we have to do (or not allowed to do) on Lunar New Year, my favorite is getting the red envelopes. And this lightweight Longchamp bag is perfect for collecting lots of them!





Top & Bottom :: Zara dress
Bag :: Longchamp Planetes short handle
Shoes :: Christian Louboutin Rolando
Accessories :: House of Harlow resin station necklace,
Burberry watch, Forever 21 braeelets, rings from eBay
