Paint the Town Red

Chinese New Year Dress

You’ll have to excuse the late posts recently. I’ve been traveling between Kuala Lumpur and Los Angeles, so my photos still need to catch up with me (the inevitable result of jet lag).

Today, I find myself reminiscing from my hotel in KL about a red dress I wore to a lux LA event. A few weeks ago, I attended a formal Chinese New Year dinner held by Chase and . The 10 course meal was beyond exquisite and the wine was out of this world.

Armani Beauty Rouge Lipstick

Traditionally, the Lunar New Year calls for a riveting red dress. And when you wear red, the best red lipstick ever is the Armani Rouge #400.

Vintage Cartier Earrings

The essentials: fur, a red & white French manicure and a yummy boost of youthH20 (my secret weapon to countering my occasional macaroon indulgence).

Accessory Details
Red and White French Manicure
Red Lipstick
Adrienne Landau Fur Coat

 The occasion called for a sparkle of vintage Cartier (thanks Grandma!)

... and my favorite Ferragamo clutch, this time sans frosting.

Here's to another night of staining champagne glasses with red lipstick. I miss you LA, but I'm not quite ready to come back yet.
'Til next time, Ambitionistas!
