Lady in Red

Sunday, February 11, 2018 Simone - Your Style Architect 2 Comments

Red is the colour of the week - both for Valentines, and for the Lunar New Year. This pretty and comfortable dress from H&M fits the bill. Here I styled it for the Lunar New Year visitations where according to tradition and customs, the younger generation spend the day visiting the elders of the family and friends to pay their respects and offer well wishes and gifts. This lovely red camera bag from Gamiss  was indeed a nice touch to complete the look.

Slip on mules were the perfect footwear to pair with this outfit, as it is easy to slip in and out of when entering people's homes. As you know here in Asia, we do remove our footwear when entering people's homes as a sign of respect and I guess it's more hygenic that way too. The loose fitting dress style gives the allowance for me to eat and enjoy all the goodies without watching my waistline too much as opposed to traditional chinese cheongsam.

Tassels are everywhere - in decorations, packaging for gifts etc and so I opted for these tassel earrings to complete my outfit and ring in the new year.

These lovely cookies and treats from The Peranakan were the perfect gifts for friends and relatives. I particularly love how they managed to package the goodies in typical peranakan style and colours.

As they say in asia - " Huat Ah" which means " Prosperity and Success"!
