New Year, new dreams

This new year has probably brought the most amount of good luck and new opportunities for me, while letting me realise what being an adult really meant -- Chasing your dreams and letting go of some other things/people. These photos were taken in January for Chinese New Year, a festival celebrating the first day of the lunar calendar. For chinese, it is a significant day which in some places like China is a more celebrated holiday than the actual new year. 

My mum also gave me a Tiffany & Co. key necklace which was supposed to be my 21st birthday present but we got it for a lower price when we bought it in Paris on holiday last December. Isn't it lovely? Certainly a timeless piece in a collection that has been around for a long, long time. Love Tiffany's pieces for their versatility and their unique charms are to-die-for.

Also, the Chinese tradition also calls for the need to wear new pieces of clothing for the first fifteen days of Chinese New Year -- hence the opportunity to grab some new friends for my bursting wardrobe! Hehe. This Zara dress has a unique print that differs with each piece, and of course I scrutinised all of them that were available in the store to ensure that I bought the most colourful one. It also has an asymmetric hem which is in trend now but I think I am too short for it to look nice :( Oh well.

Happy Sunday to all of you! :)
