{GBF Life + Style} What I'm Wearing On Lunar New Year

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

 This Friday is Lunar New Year which marks both the end of the reign of the Snake and my Dad's year-long cohabitation with red underwear. He was born in the year of the Snake and according to Chinese tradition, one should wear the color red every single day during their zodiac year to ward off bad luck. My Dad didn't want to wear a Kabbalah look-alike bracelet or tie a red string around his neck for 365 days so he asked my Mom and I to buy him a laundry cycle's worth of red underwear. It was the most awkward shopping trip ever.

A different kind of shopping took place this past Saturday when I hosted the Macy's Lunar New Year event. It was so much fun chatting and providing style and beauty tips to the shoppers. I also found the perfect jumpsuit for dinner on New Year's eve. It's a departure from the traditional CNY red and gold dress yet still appropriately festive. The floral wide leg jumpsuit gives off a boho edge but looks put together when layered with a structured top. It's also fabulously functional as I refuse to wear anything with a waistband when eating at my parent's house.
