Happy Year of the Dog! Now let's spend some money.
Kung hei fat choi! We're well and truly into the Year of the Dog now and I hope you got enough lai see to buy that stupid thing you've been coveting for ages, but finally have the money to justify spending. (Concrete plant stands and blanket ladders, here we come.)
I jumped into the traditions behind CNY in my Chinese New Year outfit post and this gallery delves into one of them: buying new clothes for the year to come and revamping your wardrobe. A lot of stores are introducing their SS18 collections as February peters out which is super exciting, plus other brands like Gucci above are introducing special Year of the Dog capsules - meaning there's loads of fun new stuff to choose from.
I've put together my fashion favourites this February while sticking very, very loosely to the red and gold colour palette. I've also chucked in a couple of fun Chinese New Year-related extras below. I'm feeling generous today.
