Happy Chinese New Year!












Today my Auntie and Uncle held a Chinese New Year party, with an abundance of food, people, and yummy tea. I actually ate an absurd amount of noodles, they were so good!
I love this dress, I got it a few years ago and was so glad it fit, since authentic mandarin dresses usually don't so I buy the 50s american made ones whatever change I get.

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!

What a stunning outfit, I adore the color combo. Did you position the veil to one side or is it suppose to be like that, any who it looks awesome!


The last picture is so sweet, I love how she has marker or some sort of coloring product on her hand.
