The Red Deal

Next Saturday is the Chinese New Year Party. As mentioned in my previous Siesta Saturday , I Celebrate two New Years and Jan 26th is this years' Chinese New Year which is The Year of the Ox. It is also a BIG event for me this year- hence reason why I'm in a quest for the perfect little black dress. Have you submitted your finds yet? Lucky entry will win a surprise gift.

For those not culturally-challenged, RED in Chinese Tradition, is a big deal! Red connotates GOOD Luck making it specially important during Chinese New Year. Want some Good Luck? Wear Red! Need to know more? Familyculture.com have more answers. Or have Sara Naumann tells you all about the famous RED UNDERWEAR! Hmmm....I'm seeing fiery red now...

Admittedly, I don't like the color red! Yet this is the only time I will make exclusive exemptions. Who doesn't want Good Luck for the whole year right? I, of course have a great idea on what to wear. Forget red clothing. I'm going for this:

Traditional Lotus Flower Carved in Red Cinnabar Necklace

Want to try your luck with red? You can find more of these Red Chinese-inspired jewelries online at Golden Flower Creations. The stock is limited due its' distribution exclusivity to a Chinese Martial Arts School intended for New Year. But after Jan 24th, rest of the design will be available to public.

If you want other than the color red, how about this?

It comes with matching Oh la la Earrings and is part of a whole slew of beautiful bracelets which can be found at Golden Flower Creations other online store HERE . Or you can click on the widgets on the side bar on the right to browse both stores.

What are you waiting for? Grab some RED today!
