Red Overdosed

Chinese New Year (CNY) is around the corner and I am sure we are all in the midst of getting ourselves ready for that. I think i have mentioned before that besides Christmas and my birthday month that i am particularly excited about and looking forward to, CNY is the next anticipated festive season. When i was younger , i would go through much efforts to shop for CNY clothes so that i would look very good on the actual days of CNY. Now that i am erm.. not so young, i admit that i do not place as much emphasis on looking fab anymore; as long as i look decent, thats good enough. But whether we go through miles to look great or cannot really be too bothered by it, there is definitely one thing that we need to observe when celebrating this much looked forward holiday. Wear red. To the Chinese, Red colour represents luck and therefore brings forth positive meaning and good energy. So normally, we will try to have some red on us when doing visitations during CNY period. If you cant have red clothing, then at least try to get some accessories in red, otherwise shoes are good too. So, lets have some RED overdose!

I personally have been into culottes lately. I dont know about you but i would think that its a good idea to wear a red culottes with black top and match it with gold accessories. But would you dare wear this outfit for CNY visitations? 🙂


Or how ’bout this? Literally RED OVERDOSED!

For Tropical country like mine whereby weather and temperature is a little on the higher side, investing in a pair of red shorts / skorts would be ideal. Not only can you wear it for CNY, matching red with black, white and even stripes / polka dots is also one of the easiest ways to look chic and preppy!

On matching bags for CNY:


Besides Birkins, Constance can also be an alternative. Especially if you are one that doesnt quite like big bags or a hand carry one, opt for this one. Its not too big yet roomy enough for your personal items as well as the RED PACKETS! Weeeee!

On Manicure Ideas for CNY:


I would do this for my CNY nails! Simple yet brings out the CNY ‘feel’. 🙂


Dont like prints or flowers? Then this might suit you. Generally no designs except for colours combi, yet it looks chic and classy.
