Time flies. Baby Luke is already five months plus and this little rock of mine is all cute and cuddly and oh-so-handsome!
The Year of the Horse is coming in one-and-a-half weeks' time and it'll be Luke's very first Chinese New Year. It'll also be my very first Chinese New Year as a mom. I can't wait to "parade" him around, expecting lots of ooohs-and-aaahs and of course, RED PACKETS from everybody we meet. :P
His little outfit is ready. It's red and shiny. He'll look super duper adorable! Gotta get ready to snap lotsa photos.
But finding my outfit is a problem this year. Looking back at my outfit on the first day of CNY 2011-2013:
They looked normal; expected color - red. Hmmm. Now that I've a new status as a mother, I wanna try something different. Yummy mummy wannabe!
Shopping for clothes at malls is a tug-of-war with time. Plus, I don't really have the mood to shop. It's tiring having to browse for outfits that I really like, trying them out one by one, and finding the right size. With a baby in tow, spending time to find THE outfit is really difficult.
So, shopping online is the best! Coincidentally, I've been receiving quite a number of emails/newsletters from different online boutiques. One that catches my attention is Zalora's Chinese New Year collection.
I'm interested in the Melinda Looi X Amber Chia's collection, especially this particular modern Qipao with Scalloped Sleeves and Jacquard Piping. There are three colors – red, dark pink, and blue.
Okay, excuse me as I log in and buy the blue qipao.
