Today we were off to a family gathering for the Chinese New Year. Traditionally, you should wear some gold & red OR wear some new clothes.
I decided to go bold with the red & wear a vintage dress that was my mom's in the 70s! Typically, I wear very few bold colours (I'm an all-black gal) and I'm not very good at implementing too many vintage pieces into daily wear either. I told Sam that I really wanted to try to dress a little more "70s" this year, so this was my first stab at it :) I don't think I look particularly 70s boho, but it's a change!
prescription sunglasses from zennioptical.com, gold leaf hairband from UO, dress from my momma, cardi & jacket from ub, pixie wedge boots by jeffrey campbell
another first: curling my SHORT hair! seems like an acceptable practice in this growing-out phase. not sure if I like it that much yet.
Lacking any bright red pieces in her wardrobe other than some skinny jeans, Sam decided to go small on the red details. Her head & feet seem to say Pocahontas, & her body says ballerina girl :)

We feasted on some Indian hakka/Szechuan food for dinner & snacked on all the lovely treats we've been making all week! Pretty good day! I didn't realize that at the end of the night we would be facing another dumping of snow. It had snowed another couple of inches, making for slow-driving conditions. In the approx 50km drive home, we saw about 4 accidents... one was a snowplow truck fallen in the ditch of the highway! Crazy. DRIVE SLOW DUDEZ.
Anyone doing anything fun for the superbowl? I typically go to "superbowl parties" but it's basically an excuse to eat horribly unhealthily for a day & watch a half-time show. haha.
