I’ve been impatiently waiting for the Lunar New Year to arrive. Just thinking about all the festivities, especially the food-indulging part, already makes me happy. Supposedly, red is the colour of good luck. Thus, I would probably end up by covering myself with all the red-coloured pieces of clothing that I could find in my closet for New Year’s day. But before that happens, I will resort to my old black from head-to-toe routine for a couple more days. Dressing all in black could be dull and boring at times but it doesn’t necessarily have to. I usually try to throw different patterns and textures into the mix to ‘spice up the outfit’. Cringe – I can’t believe I have just used that term, but for lack of other fitting cliché terms… pardon my limited grasp of the poetic English language :(

This velvet Zara blazer has rarely left my shoulder for the past week. It’s so soft and shiny and goes with anything in my closet. Well, it’s black after all. BUT it’s the material that makes it so special. I think I have a new found love for velvet. I got the aztec print shirt from Urban Outfitters during the sales for a whooping 10 pounds. I love the pattern. It’s slightly unusual but it’s exactly the grayscale palette makes it really wearable. As for the crochet shorts, they’ve pretty much became a staple in my closet by now. There’s something very granny-like about them that I just somehow love. I bought them for the summer but throw in a pair of stockings and you’re set for the cold weather as well!
