GONG HAY FAT CHOY! that’s cantonese for HAPPY NEW YEAR! today starts the new lunar year - the year of the horse :) i’m not ethnically chinese, but throughout my long kung fu career, i tend to celebrate many of the customs that come along with the territory ^_^ for example, wearing red & gold…always good luck colors for the new year. also, wearing new things. this sweater is old, but both the skirt & necklaces are new. very “happy” that these awesomely huge letter necklaces just arrived from china too (before the whole country shuts down for the holiday), so hey, double dose of good luck! i just “love” them! here are some other observances i tend to do (or not do) for chinese new year ^_^ many happy tidings for health, happiness & prosperity in 2014!
wearing: thrifted red sweater || express tan A-line skirt || happy & love necklaces (via ebay) || simply vera nude fishnet stockings || nine west knee high leather boots (super old - via pennsylvania consignment shop)
