Lucky ColorPosted: January 24, 2013
I actually wore this last weekend when my sister and I went back to our hometown for a cousin’s engagement party. It was a very casual affair, not to mention we had to spend nearly 6 hours in the car, round-trip, hence the jeans. I still wanted to look celebratory though, so I picked my red coat – after all, it’s a color associated with good luck and celebration in most Eastern culture. In fact, in Vietnam, when somebody is lucky, we say that they have “red fortune.” Also, I’ve been wearing a lot of neutrals lately, so some color is good. As it turned out, the day was too warm for a heavy coat. Good thing I was wearing my red striped shirt too.
