One of my favourite outfits for this year’s Chinese New Year celebration is this lovely Covet Vionette Flare Dress from Love,Bonito, which you may have already seen in my previous post on Love, Bonito’s Popup Store.
I love the oriental floral motifs, reminiscent of Chinese porcelain, although I did wish that the motifs could be even more defined to bring out the intricate design. What I really like about the dress is its cutting and the thick woven jacquard material, which enhances the dress’s beautiful fit-and-flare structure. And how could I forget the inner mesh tulle skirting which adds that extra oomph?

I went for a full-on matchy-matchy ensemble with electric blue shoes from Zara and my trusty birkin (just the right size for all the red packets and oranges). Practicality and comfort are of utmost importance to me given that house-to-house visitations often take up the entire day.

We managed to sneak in some time for a coffee break too and as we strolled down one of the back alleys along Little India, JW whipped out our new camera for some quick snaps. It is about time we scouted for some new lenses as we only have one compatible lens at the moment and unfortunately, that isn’t enough to maximize the true potential of our new baby.

Singapore’s back alleys are one of the most interesting places to check out. They’re usually empty but yet there’s so much going on. The long alleys add depth and dimension (read: great for photography) while the varying wall textures, colourful pipes, doors of different shapes and sizes, and signature dark green bins lend interest and character to our concrete jungle. Even Sandara Park of 2NE1 has given her stamp of approval

Happy Chinese New Year!
