The Chinese New Year Outfit

It is the 15th and last day of the Chinese New Year celebrations today - or Chap Goh Meh. My family doesn't observe/celebrate Chap Goh Meh and it is only in recent years that I learnt there is such a thing!

Anyway, I scanned through our Chinese New Year photos and was disappointed that we did get many good ones. The disappointment is largely because I am in love with the dress that I got for Bubbles and wish I took a better photo of her in it.

I really like the patchwork design on quality cotton. I want one in my size! Unfortunately for me, I misplaced the namecard of the stall I bought it from. They apparently also roam different malls to sell cotton dresses (in different styles) in pushcarts.

Maybe I'll make her wear it again to pose for me *cackle*. It will be hilarious if she poses with a mop in her hand. Mini housewife from the 1920s Shanghai ;)

Oh joy! I found the namecard. Check out their site:

Thank you! I had comments that it was sexy. Haha! Well the slits have to be high for her to be able to walk!

Thanks :)

Cotton Qipao! Been looking for that, Kate hates the 'normal' (fake) satin material.
I love her red shoes! So pretty :)

I was going to give up and buy one of those satin ones you're referring to until I saw this one! I literally squealed!

And joy, I found the namecard!
