if you celebrate lunar new year, i hope you had a wonderful celebration. wishing you all good fortune, health and luck! my mother would tell us stories about how she and her sisters would get new dresses for new year; the house would be decorated with flowers and lanterns; and they cooked for days. traditionally, decorations are red and gold, which are auspicious colours.
it is important for us that the boys learn about their heritages, especially since they have two rich ones. the kids love that they get to celebrate new year twice, see the lion/dragon dance and lucky money - of course! i'll be wearing lots of red in the next few days - pairing it with gold is a luxurious combination and makes following tradition easy! finally, thanks alexis at JCA for posting the sale code for j. crew's extra 30% final sale items (STYLE30)
