Happy Chinese New Year! Today is the first day of lunar calendar for the year of Monkey. I was born in 1980 and a monkey by Chinese zodiac sign so this is an especially important year for me to celebrate. I decided to do a mommy and me outfit with both Miss K and PA to celebrate this special occasion. A special note: my Qipao was custom made while I was traveling in China when I was 23 and the fact that I still fit into it makes me do a happy dance.
Also, I’ve noticed that a lot of designers such as Kate Spade, Rebecca Minkoff, Tory Burch, DVF and Marc Jacobs have made extremely cute charms and accessories especially for year of the Monkey and they are flying off the shelves and selling out fast! So I’ve picked out a few that I absolutely loved and might snatch a few for myself and Miss K since I’m pretty obsessed with all things monkey. Miss K, PA and I are going to brave the massive crowd and head to our local temple, follow us on Snapchat and see how Chinese Americans celebrate in LA (Snap: @poshclassymom)
