Hi everyone,

Barely a month after Christmas, we are counting down to the turn of the clock for Chinese New Year 2020. Welcoming the year of the Rat this year, many of you are probably starting to clean out your houses, and exchange your Christmas decorations for good luck symbols and colours of red, orange, yellow and pink throughout your homes.  Be it floral arrangements, kumquat bushes, lanterns and/or hanging ornaments.

Like with all New Year celebrations across all cultures of the world, wearing new garments and adding new items to one's wardrobe is always a part of such festivities. Perfect for Chinese New Year I have styled this beautiful bespoke, upcycled vintage kimono textile clutch from Heritage Refashioned, handmade in Hong Kong with this modern new year outfit trending the colour of tangerines. The Bishamon symbol on this clutch, is inspired by the body armour of a Japanese warrior god and symbolises the protection of wealth. PERFECT!! No better way to say it subtly for the new year than with this clutch.

This simple ensemble makes this a classic look one can take anywhere, anytime. With traditions of visiting friends and relatives over the Chinese New Year, I paired this with a low heeled all leather sandal from The Tui Collection which makes it perfect for running around comfort,  literally door to door especially during the first 2 days of the celebrations. I bought my first pair of Tui Collection heels just a couple of months ago, and now I am so in love with them for their unique style and comfort, I have 5 pairs of The Tui Collection shoes in my closet and still counting... accessories are starting to also pile up from this collection. Check them out now as they are having a sale of up to 70% off till 25 Jan 2020. You will not regret owning a pair of these bespoke, curated sandals/ shoes ... believe me! Whilst you are at it, do also check out their bags and belts and jewellery too.

Keeping it classic and yet stand out from the usual Chinese New Year dresses, do check out Heritage Refashioned for their collection of clutches with some gorgeous pieces going on "Last Piece" sale now. Feel free to share with me which is your favourite clutch from their collection and how you would be spending Chinese New Year with your family.

Love,
Simone xoxo
