Wearing The Lucky Colors for the Year of the Water Dragon

Xin Nian Kuai Le (Happy New Year)! Gong Xi Fa Cai (Congratulations and wishing you prosperity)! ๐Ÿ˜€

Today marks the start of the Year of the Water Dragon. Although I firmly believe that we make our own destiny, it doesn’t hurt to follow some Chinese traditions. I remember wearing Red and Gold as I celebrate Chinese New Year last year. You can see it this post. Well, luck was indeed on my side for the Year of the Rabbit. So for genuine happiness and for wealth to continue flowing this Year of the Dragon, here’s what I wore last night in a New Year’s Eve dinner with my relatives.

I wasn’t in all red this time! Why? Well, I was told that I could wear yellow, green, blue or red for luck. Instead of choosing one, I chose to wear ALL the lucky colors hoping for good karma all through out the year.

Reading my Chinese New Year outfit postย last year, I said that my new bag will give me luck for the year ahead. I’ll do the same now.
