Happy Chinese New Year!

Happy Chinese New Year everyone! Growing up, this was always a special time of year where we wished health, happiness and prosperity to one another. My father passed on traditions such as no fighting, no washing your hair (or you'll wash the good luck away!) and lighting a pack of Black Cat firecrackers on the porch (which in the 'burbs was not always a good idea).
The Lunar New Year is a time of family, feasting and all out celebration. Wear your most glorius red, coral or pink! Above: Dresses by Christian Lacroix, Zac Posen and Marchesa. Miu Miu sandals. 2004 issue of Lunar New Year stamps.
