Happy Lunar New Year!
In case you didn't know, today marks the first day of the year of the Monkey! A quick google search tells me that those born this year are "adventurous, quick-witted, and ambitious."
DC's Chinatown will be having a celebration tonight so I plan on going to see the festivities. I've lived in DC since my college days but I've yet to attend this event! I'm told the parade and the festival is usually quite fun so I'm really pumped!
On a sartorial note, I'm wearing all new pieces today! I went on a bit of a shopping binge as I'm planning on giving up shopping for Lent this year so I've been stocking up. The jeans I got during the Zara sale and the striped sweater was from a LOFT sale (40% off!). I had been in the market for a new big structured tote the past two years. I'd been holding off buying one until I had a clearer vision on what I was looking for in a tote. This one has been amazing and I'd be happy to write a review and a step-by-step guide to making an investment purchase if it's something you guys would like to read.
And these shoes. My goodness these shoes have been an excellent purchase! They've been conversation starters with strangers I've met on the elevator as well! If you like the look of the Valentino Rockstud pumps that all the bloggers are wearing but don't want to pay $1000 for them, consider these an affordable alternative!
Thanks for reading! By the way, I'm curious to know what Chinese New Year animal you guys are? Let me know in the comments below!
