According to Chinese culture, red is considered a sign of good fortune and joy. It is the traditional color for Chinese brides and is also found everywhere in around Chinese New Year…which is today! (Or yesterday, depending on what time zone you are in.) Happy Year Of the Goat.

The color red seemed fitting for me to wear to my first ever New York Fashion Week show – Noon by Noor. Not only did the color make me feel powerful and confident, but it happened to be Valentine’s Day, so it felt especially significant. I paired the festive top with my favorite statement necklace, which was a gift from my husband. I’m particularly touched by the encouragement from fellow blogger, Erin Cullen. She mentioned me in her New York Fashion Week post yesterday and I couldn’t be more grateful. It is my goal to help everyone feel part of the fashion world and understand how they can bring it to their everyday lives.

Before the show, Jenny and I enjoyed a delicious, cozy brunch at West Village’s Buvette (thanks again for the rec, Leslie!). Possibly the home of the smallest table in the world. Check out the great shot on Jenny’s Instagram here.
