year of the monkey

According to the Chinese, red is the luckiest color especially during your Zodiac's year. Well it's my year, the Year of the Monkey and as hard as it is to incorporate the color red into what I wear everyday it's actually nice to see a pop of color with my dark wardrobe. For the past 6 months I've been taking the easy way out, painting my nails red as much as I can, wearing red lipstick too. This week, I'm sporting a red bandana and slowly figuring out ways to wear it without looking too western. A major shout out to my pal, Annie, for giving me a red threaded bracelet to wear everyday from Chinatown.
