Stripes & Leather

February 10, 2015

123 The Lunar New Year is coming up (it’s the year of the Ram!) and I’m so excited to partner with Westfield Valley Fair to celebrate! Vietnamese New Year was a special time of year for me growing up: it was family tradition to celebrate at my grandparents’ house and wish all of our aunts and uncles a healthy and prosperous year. We feasted on delicious Vietnamese food and wore the traditional ao dai dress. I might not be wearing an ao dai this year, but I am eyeing some of the items I’ve hand-picked for Westfield’s Lunar New Year Gift Guide (see it here). This stylish gift guide shows you what items will bring you luck according to your sign’s characteristics. Today I’m wearing leather trousers (my pick for the year of the Pig) and a striped top (another striped top is always a good idea, in my book), and both are from the gift guide.

I hope you’ll join me at Westfield Valley Fair for their Lunar New Year Community Celebration Event on Saturday, February 28th from 11:00am – 2:00pm; details are below or visit the event page here. And if you can’t make it to the event, you can still find out what’s in store for you in 2015 with Westfield’s Lunar New Year Lucky Horoscope here!
