Happy Lunar New Year

Happy year of the Ox! We celebrated Lunar New Year early since my husband and I are taking the girls on a family trip for the upcoming long weekend. I got my traditional Vietnamese dress (áo dài) just in time for the new year. The dress is absolutely stunning in person and the measurements were spot on. I love the design and the beautiful patterns. I feel like wearing a piece of art. I opted for a non-traditional neckline to show off my necklace. Shopping online for the perfect áo dài is not an easy task. The owner was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is responsive and attentive. This dress is made from a stretchy silk fabric. It feels cool to the touch, flows well and is very comfortable to wear. If you're in the market for a traditional Vietnamese dress, check out the shop here. Their dresses come in different colors, materials, patterns, and designs. I highly recommend and will come back next year for sure. I cooked some of my favorite Lunar New Year foods and shared with my family. A dear friend has gifted me 2 sweet gourd. I used one to make red sticky rice (xôi gấc). I gave the other one to my Mom. This kind of exotic fruit is next to impossible to find in Ohio. I also made some sticky rice and banana cakes. They turned out super delicious. If you're celebrating Lunar New Year, I wish you good health and lasting prosperity. Outfit details: Vietnamese dress | VCA earrings | VCA necklace
