orangey-red

dress: secret south | sunnies: ray ban | necklace: isabel marant | clutch: louis vuitton | shoes: chloe scallop flats

happy chinese new year!

cny has lost some of its charm to me, mostly because i now have to dole out the red packets. luckily we'll be on the other side of the world next year. 

my family always makes a big effort with cny - we all get together and have an incredible feast. the best part is playing blackjack with my grandma. she plays banker and all her grandchildren gather round the table raucously yelling at the dealt hands. unfortunately for us my grandma happens to be the luckiest person i know and more often than not wins back all the money she's given out earlier in those little red packets.

this is my attempt at a "red" outfit - orange is close enough...
