Happy Lunar New Year! Feels hard coming back to reality after the whole weekend of feasting, isn’t it?
Here’s sharing my two cheongsam outfits during the Chinese New Year festivities. I have been trying to experiment other designs rather than the tried and tested sleeveless and flare contemporary dresses that are now getting very mainstream.
I went for a full red almost-traditional cut cheongsam dress, thinking that there’s only one period in the year where we could dress up like a humungous red packet (angbao). My motto for the day: GO RED OR GO HOME!
Dress: Lark and Peony “The Princess” in Crimson, with Shippo Accent | Clutch: Dylan’s Candy Bar x LeSportSac Gumball Clutch| Shoes: Lucy Choi London | Lips: Dior Fluid Stick in ArtificeComment?
No, I am not a big fan of jogging but I do try to jog regularly to keep myself healthy and fit.
And the extra push away from the inertia to get out for a jog would be a pair of pretty running shoes (and perhaps loads of pretty sports outfit too).
Perhaps the stars were aligned a tad late – but better than never – I just discovered the Nike Flyknits!

Yes, you can be your own designer without having to pay an arm and a leg. If you like a particular design, you could wear it!
That’s the own gist of DIY Fashion, which incidentally I have blogged about in 2010. I do realise that I have been revisiting old topics these days. A sign of fashion revival? Or an indication that this blog has covered many themes over the span of ahem… close to 6 years?
I digressed. With the advent in printing technology, you could now easily introduce your favourite picture or pattern and wear them with pride – as a watch, or on your nails!

We know that Taobao is the shopping hub for anything possible and in terms of cheongsams, the Chinese website is literally the heaven for both traditional and contemporary dresses!
In this post, I shall share with you some of my picks from Taobao stores, which now accept DBS credit cards for payment and delivers to Singapore. For 101 shopping tips at Taobao, please click here.
Please note that I have not bought from any of these stores and cannot vouch for credibility or quality of the dresses. You may wish to refer to the item rating or shop rating on Taobao for more information.Comment?
