Bloggers Do It Better...Red

I quote Kristina at Pretty Shiny Sparkly,
"Bloggers Do It Better is a movement. An initiative to showcase real girls, with real style, wearing real trends. Think of it as inspiration from the girl next door."

The latest instalment is simply entitled, Red. Bloggers were asked to interpret it however they wished to. Here is my interpretation of it.


Red shirt: Bugis Street, Singapore
Paperbag skirt with heart prints: H&M
Ladybug ring: Random market


While this colour is really apt for today, Valentine's Day, I actually wore this one day while visiting relatives during the Chinese New Year period. Red is of great significance to the Chinese and it is tradition to wear red during this festive season. It symbolizes good luck and is the colour for celebration and happiness.

This was actually the first time in 5 years I've visited my relatives around Malaysia and collected angpaus (red packets). Chinese New Year in the UK is a sad affair and it can feel terribly lonely, though I've gotten used to it. Still, it was a delight to be counting and spending my lucky money.

This is where some of my money went.







My 1st blogiversary giveaway is over. I've randomly selected a winner and the winner is...


CONGRATULATIONS!!

  3. Love the way you wore red :) and that heart print skirt is super cute!

    Good use of the red pocket money I say!! Unfortunately I was given one this year that had £40 in it...when I was in the kitchen cooking. I must have tossed it in hte bin or something by accident because I really can't find it now T.T Wahhhhhhh!

  19. "girl next door" sort of fashion inspiration is a very good idea imo, love it when I see amazing outfits created from inexpensive, accessible brands and aren't all about high fashion! the skirt is so cute, it's perfect for vday (well it's a cute skirt for any day really!) :P
