Red is Rad

Gong Xi Fa Cai!!!

Apologies for the lack of updates! Not that I celebrate Chinese New Year, but it's my mom's birthday! So for the whole weekend I was her personal slave, heh. Loads of fun still.

Now, it's almost customary to wear the colour red during the Chinese New Year season because it's fierce and stuff so represents prosperous things in the year.

But I always prefer looking a little less flashy so I've been making full use of my red shoes, headband and necklace instead.

But of course, don't overload on red accessories unless you want to look like you're trying too hard. As a personal rule I always stick to 2 accessories at most to be safe.

Happy Birthday to your mom! Hope you guys had a great day. Those heart-shaped sunglasses are so funny. Very Lolita.

Great picks. Red is good to wear year-round.
