There are two main reasons why I like the Lunar New Year holidays as much as I do. First, I get loads of free time to myself while waiting for friends and relatives to drop by. Secondly, when they do drop by, I get red packets, which pretty much means extra cash in the wallet. And as far as I’m concerned, that just means I have the time and the money to shop online, which is pretty much what I’ve been doing all day.
And my mission today? To look for unusual, offbeat objects that had interesting patterns or prints for girls and guys. They also had to be monochromatic, since I’m still reeling from all the brights that are de rigueur during the festive season. Honestly, I think I did a pretty good job, though I would like to hear what you honestly think. Givenchy sandals and Maison Martin Margiela bracelet, anyone?
