Let's Do The Charleston!

Sunday, January 21, 2018 Simone - Your Style Architect 7 Comments

Whilst all merry making seem to be over in the west with the turn of the clock to 2018, here in Asia, we are preparing to welcome the Lunar New Year - the Year of the Dog. Traditionally people would wear auspicious colours of bright red, pink, orange or even yellow in traditional style clothing items for this occasion. However these days with the new generation, the rules have now changed. Many preferring to wear other types of clothing and even designs which lay a twist on our traditional garb.

So whilst I would still be wearing a chinese cheongsam or qipao in those auspicious colours for the first few days of the new year but glitter and sequins would still be a nice call for an evening dinner with friends!

This lovely dress and bag from Dresslily suits me perfectly in terms of the length, the tassels at the hemline, and the lovely comfortable sheath cut which got me in the mood to do the " Charleston". Just a pity I could not find a nice headband to get the whole 1920s Gatsby look going. I must admit this is a nice item to have in the closet for those theme dinner parties or even Halloween!
You can check out the variations of colours for this lovely dress and bag with the links below.
