Today’s post shows what I wore for Chinese New Year yesterday. It’s the second New Year of the year that our multicultural family celebrate so far and there’s going to be another one to come in April 🙂 It’s a great time to spend with family and friends. Kids always get a ‘red packet’ which is an envelope of money. And there’s much too much food and drink for all! Roll on April…
I always wanted to wear red but never did for years and years. It’s such a bold and emotive colour, I never had the confidence to wear it until last year. This coat is Tommy Hilfiger and so warm. The double breasted Trench style is too much for my frame, I concede, but since it’s a proper winter coat, most of it is obscured by the obligatory scarf as you can see. Sorry about the wellies, a necessary evil during sudden snow and freezing weather.
I did have the sleeves shortened when I bought it and thought I could get away with the original length. However, I checked again to see if shortening the length by a couple inches would make a big improvement to the overall look on me and decided to leave it since it would look boxier shorter with the double breast and this way I can wear heels with it fine.
Thanks for reading!
