Happy Chinese New Year - The year of Dragon

Happy Chinese New Year!! 恭喜发财,红包拿来!!Oh, how I wish I am home in Malaysia in this traditional Chinese holiday. It's been 8 years since I left home and this is definitely the holiday that I miss the most. Chinese New Year also referred to as the "Lunar New Year". Chinese New Year is the longest and most important festivity in the Chinese calendar. The celebration last for 15 days. 2012 is also the year of Dragon. Same as Christmas, Chinese New Year is the holiday that we celebrate with family.
Traditionally, people wear red in Chinese New Year. Although I don't carry that tradition too well, I still respect that manner when I have to visit to elder houses in Chinese New Year. Black is not prohibited but definitely not welcome when giving a visit to the elders. They believe red bring good luck and black means the darkness. Honestly I don't care of the color part, but a little of red or bright color does bring up the celebration mood, why not?

I'm wearing:
Blue & Black color block sweater from romwe.com
Rose pink blazer from romwe.com
Tight from Express
Newsboy hat from target
Black leather boots from Jeffrey Campbell
