I have found the perfect Chinese New Year bag and it is from Loewe. The red Amazona is really so perfect for the occasion, red being a color of prosperity, happiness, and luck for the Chinese (and I suppose everyone now :D)!
There is no need for a lengthy explanation on why I like the Amazona bag– it is a very nice and functional east- west bag with two zippers that meet, so there is no right or wrong side when you carry the bag. The length of the handles are also just right– the bag can either be carried on the crook of your arm or on your shoulder to keep your hands free.
2014 is also the Year of the Horse, and that golden horse padlock is so spot on for this year! It looks like carrying this bag a lot this year will bring you lots and lots of good luck 😉
Shameless Plug Alert: And speaking of good luck, do you already know your lucky colors and crystals for this year? If you haven’t found out which are good for your animal sign, now’s the time to head over to Accessory Lab at Rockwell Power Plant Mall (Accessory Lab is located on the 2/F Rockwell Powerplant Mall, Makati City. Tel. +632 890-9011) because the boutique has a comprehensive list of what stones and colors will work for you– you know, for better luck in wealth and in health 🙂
P.S. Accessory Lab also has an ongoing mini exhibit beside Powerplant Mall’s lucky red pocket golden tree at the ground floor, North Court, so do pop over!
Tonight is also the big Chinese New Year countdown party over at Mandarin Oriental Manila, where there will be a grand fireworks display, blessings and the year’s forecast by resident fengshui master Joseph Chau, as well as a sumptuous midnight lauriat dinner to jumpstart the good luck for the new year.
I’ll be there tonight to celebrate the countdown as well as to feature the festive event for a Chinese New Year’s Special for The Bag Hag Diaries on Star World 🙂 So if you happen to be there tonight, please do come over to say hi 🙂
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR, everyone!!! 🙂 More luck, properity, good health, love, and peace to us all this coming year 🙂
