To really highlight the luckiness of the day, I decided to get all dolled up and infused something RED into my outfit. The Chinese believe red is a lucky color and represents positive energy. So, I tried out the red top, it looks cute except the belly bulge (eew!) but there was no turning back since it was the only red shirt I brought.

I tried to wear my 4 ½" red wedge shoes that would complement with my red top perfectly. Ultra high heels (4" and above) are gorgeous, sexy and make you look taller & leaner but wearing them isn't my thing. They're not really designed for comfort, they kill my feet. I don't want to suffer just to look fashionable. But for those women out there who can comfortably wear sky heels, I want you to know I'm jealous. :)

A lot of fashionistas are sporting the maxi skirt, so I decided to try this trend with my Y-3 Yohji Yamamoto skirt that has been sitting silently in my closet for a year. This retails for US$520.00. But HB bought it for me at ridiculously discounted price. Love the soft texture very comfortable. However, wearing this full, layered and voluminous skirt makes me look bigger than I already am. I wish I had my early 2o's slim body and 23" waist back again! Haaay...

I also tried to incorporate the orange Polo Ralph Lauren Tote into my whole look to make it more cheerful. This tote bag is really for men, but I say it could pass as unisex. It looks good and offers a great storage especially for traveling and shopping.

Here's a model wearing the Y-3 Yohji Yamamoto skirt. It looks shorter on her. She's probably 5'9 height. I'm a few inches shorter.

I did not really wear this Chinesey-something red- outfit theme. It was just intended for photo shoot. I know, they're not all that picture worthy. But hey, please bear with me. I'm a frustrated model. bwahahaha....

What I really wore that day is nothing but simple and casual attire with a splash of Red of course. I added my Marc by Marc Jacobs bag with popping colors. Stripes look good on me but they make me look bigger. But I considered this whole outfit now my brilliant little treasures. They're super comfy.

Just like me, HB also shares a huge love for shoes and bags. In fact, his collection is much more superb than mine.

We all know that success is through hard work, perseverance, smart decisions and taking chances. But don't you think we also need to attract some GOOD LUCK?! ;)
