Happy New Year -- Again!

This weekend kicked off a 2-week long celebration of Chinese New Year + I wanted to show a look that seemed, well, tangentially related at best. LOL.
This free smexeh minidress gift by Intimate You struck me as what the traditional cheongsam dress might look like -- if Narcisco Rodriguez had snipped it above-the-knee short, dropped in his signature geometric panel construction + then added this deliciously immodest keyhole in the front. Luhs the dainty-to-a-tee button at the neck + this vintage brocade-like texture on the gold top.

I'm also wearing what has been one of the more overlooked skin gifts of the mo' -- this icy-pink-frosted, plump-lipped one that's still free in the CandyDoll subscribo. A bit of the traditionally lucky Chinese New Year red color in this retro updo hair + peach pearls necklace (both free by Kik for the Red Packets Hunt) finished this look.

*mwuahs* to my friend Val Southard for telling me about this awes dress gift. Lunar new year love + fashionista kisses to all!
