To those of you who celebrate it, hope you're having a happy Lunar New Year/ Chinese New Year

I'm keeping it a little more casual this year, what with my foot injury & respecting that extended family generally prefer to dress down than up. But I'm still 'dressy casual' with my fabrics! (tried to provide close-ups).

These deep red 'velveteen' jeans from Peruvian Connection were a little pricey but have already proven useful for 'casual festive' occasions (wore them for informal Xmas parties before this, like a work gathering at the pub & a rooftop BBQ).

The maxi dress worn under the silk kimono (Aussie Etsy shop) was actually my PJ's (ETA) - packed it last-minute with a cropped velour hoodie for an overnight stay. Think it's ok? The sandals probably look less cohesive here, sorry, but at least my socks are red

Anyway, must dash now (still have functions to attend... hopefully my foot can heal fully after the holidays, lol!) But thank you for looking - any comments you may have (positive or negative) are appreciated
