Outfit Details:

Vintage jacket (similar here, here, and here), Ralph Lauren skirt (similar here, love this laser cut one and this tiered one), Forever 21 blouse (try this one, or tie this one up as I did.

Walking around Boston again! Even in cities I know well, I still discover cool spots and curious places. The Chinatown section of Boston is a city within a city and fun to explore. Turning down every street is an adventure. You never know what colors or sights you will encounter. I happened upon this amazing mural and it turned out to be a perfect backdrop.

You know the expression, “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue?” I know this is generally applied to weddings, but today it fits my outfit. I’ve had this Ralph Lauren skirt for a while, but I really enjoy wearing it, especially in the spring. Zara heels and a stripy cami stand in for my “something blue.” I love the brocade fabric of these shoes, which has a decadent and slightly Chinese feel to it. The pins on my (vintage) bag are my “something borrowed.”

Finally, my “something old.” This denim jacket is vintage and is a perfect example of why scouring little shops pays off. Where else are you going to find a jacket sporting a sequined car with the license plate, “Pink!”

In traditional Chinese culture, the rooster has many symbolic meanings. They represent bravery, punctuality, competitiveness, luck, prosperity, and honesty. Chinese folk stories also relate the power roosters have over supposed ghosts. The call of the rooster means the day is coming, and the Chinese believe that since ghosts can only come out at night, the ghosts fear the call because it means they will loose their power at dawn.
