Chinese New Year in Review

'Carmenda' dress: c/o Review 
Shoes: Boohoo

Just when you thought the party season had grinded to a halt, the streets start filling up with lion dances, fragrant food stalls and a canopy of red lanterns adorn the sky. It seems like the celebration of Chinese New Year (or Lunar New Year) only gets more and more vibrant and elaborate over the years! I was lucky enough to celebrate it with loved ones around me this year, and we feasted on lots of tasty food (not that I really need an excuse to!)

Review kindly sent over the perfect dress for the occasion as well, in a beautiful red lace design. The tiered layers from the waist down are so flattering and gives the dress a flirty, cute touch. I could not for the life of me, get my curls to work in this humid weather- but I think the loose waves ended up offering a softer, more subdued look to this outfit.

I've just returned from a much-needed two month break from blogging, which you may have noticed! Apologies for the long absence... I've had to focus on a new job, decluttering my life from unnecessary distractions and complications, on study, and just overall all-round happiness :) I look forward to catching up on everyone's blogs.


  1. Welcome back to blogging and happy new year! That red dress is beautiful and yes so perfect for the occasion! We had a quiet one,a bit feast at the in-laws with so much delicious food! :)

    Hope you are having a lovely start to the week :)
