It’s rare that two holidays fall on the same day, but today we get to celebrate both Lunar New Year’s Day and Valentine’s Day. Tradition has it that you are supposed to do today what you’d like for the rest of your year to be. Which means no working, no bickering, and no spending money unless it’s for eating out or handing out red envelopes. Translation: family time and eating time. Lots of eating in fact. It’s the one day you get a pass on your diet! It’s also the one day you should be wearing a brand new outfit, preferably with red in it. I’m not a superstitious person so I don’t know if all these traditions bear any on your luck, but it’s a good excuse as any to dress up!
The first pic is of my baby niece Lil A in the traditional Ã¡o dÃ i and her first pair of heels. I know, she’s not a year old yet but we are very early to fashion in my family. I heart Lil A.
As for me, I’m still debating over which ensemble makes the cut, but it won’t matter anyway. Because my New Year/Valentine bag I got a week ago (technically before my resolution started!) is so bright no one will notice anything else I’m wearing but this bag:
I love the chevron pattern on the delicious patent leather. A bit retro, a bit modern, and a lot of sass. Just the right way to start the Year of the Tiger.
