From China to Hong Kong to Taiwan to South East Asia, major celebrations dominate the day. The ethnic Chinese diaspora overseas do not have the benefit of a public holiday, but it doesn’t mean the festival is not observed.
Among the many traditions (which I will not go through here – I am sure there are better blogs out there where each and every tradition is listed), firstly, red is worn (to signify good luck).
I ran through my wardrobe last night and the only new item I had close to the colour red is pink: this sleek and elegant pink VERONIKA MAINE dress.
By the time I checked in and got into my hotel room I was so tired I was ready for bed. I naturally wanted to sleep in this morning, but I cannot.
I haven’t even decided which dress I wanted to wear (hence a suitcase full of dresses), so I woke up this morning at the crack of dawn: As for my outfit I shortlisted a few, including this breezy floral dress from CUE which I love so much in the warm summer months which I previously wore, and another versatile boardroom to bar zip-front dress from CUE which I sometimes wear to the office and also on the weekends, but in the end I chose a dress I have never previously worn despite having bought it: a classy and breezy Jayson Brunsdon ‘black label – poppy field’ floral dress.
My feet might hurt even before the wedding reception starts but hey, even though I am not the bride I deserve to look good too.

I think well fitted skirt suits are professional, polished, and unmistakeably feminine.Enter your mobile number or email address below and we'll send you a link to download the free Kindle App. Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) is a service we offer sellers that lets them store their products in Amazon's fulfillment centers, and we directly pack, ship, and provide customer service for these products.
