Wear different this CNY

Have a quick jump onto weighing scale this morning and I am 53kg. Still some more to lose but wonder in time for CNY or not? Guarantee put on more weights during the festival instead. Just hope whatever dresses I bought last month would still fit me nice then.

Honestly I have never wore a cheongsam in my life.  Reason is being I am not a tall person and do not have a nice figure.  So I never really keen to wear a cheongsam before. 

But this year being slightly adventureous, I decided it is high time to give cheongsam a try.  Better now than later because I never know how I would look like in near future.  Maybe a round figure in few years time??  Maybe then, I would go for tailor-made cheongsam. *wink*

"Cheongsam" a Cantonese word, relatively means "long dress".  In Chinese Mandarin, it is known as "qipao". Cheongsam in recent years have gained world recognition and enjoy a growing popularity in the international fashion. In China, cheongsam is more known as "qipao".  And like I said earlier, I am not tall so I would not opt for the "long" cheongsam.  So my 2 new cheongsam is at knee length. About RM100 per piece, and I am pretty happy with my purchase.  Do not accentuate much of my figure but same time, it has that feminine cut. 




I like this cheongsam most because of its floral design as well as the blend of chartreuse color of the leaves. 




Like my choice of my cheongsam?? 

Besides the 2 cheongsam, I also have 2 dresses (one is black and another milk color). I havent bought any new sandal this year. Hmm, should I buy one with shorter heels instead of wearing my last year's high heel that I hardly wear?

CNY is just 2 weeks away!  Have you shopped for your CNY clothing yet?? 


We done all the shopping for new clothing.  And my kids also get to wear traditional Chinese clothing. Going to take a shot of us in traditional wear on first day. :)

I like your choice of qipao, especially the one with the flowers at the bottom edge of the dress.

Looking forward to your family photo wearing traditional clothes.

Rose, you bought this cheongsam from Sally fashion? I went through the website last night and if I buy now, they can only deliver it on the 9th Feb.. which is after CNY... so I didn't manage to order...
