The Saint Laurent Red Sac Du Jour Bag is such a great looking lipstick red bag for Chinese New Year, Valentine’s Day, or just to have as a great looking perennial color accent piece to go with your all black ensembles that you wear daily. I love a pop of color and the best way to do that is by using something like a bag that is made in a classic beautiful sac shape to pull your look together. The reason I love the Saint Lauren Sac Du Jour is because it has 3 compartments that can hold and separate all your necessities so your day can be organized. This bag can hold your iPad, iPhone, wallet, pad of paper, organizer and some snacks if you need them. The bag comes in many colors from an earthy grey or brown to a light white to a forest green. Whatever you choose this bag will wear well and be with you for years to come.
Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour available now at Saks Fifth Avenue.

æ–°å¹´å¿«æ¨‚. Are you celebrating Chinese New Year in style this year? If you live in Singapore, Taiwan, or Hong Kong you are probably off for a few weeks and traveling with family. Did you give out red envelopes? Do you have a red pair of shoes, dress, or bag for a big party? Is their a fundraiser that you will be going to or something with your family? A great red dress always eclipses any other color and for Chinese New Year if you are like me and wear black almost every day of the week, change it up and get a great red bag or a red dress to wear to that Chinese New Year dinner or party.
Chinese New Year is such a fun time of the year for kids and adults because it is a time to take a break, get rid of anything from the past year that we want to clean out or cleanse from our lives, and plan for the new year of the Dragon 2012. Foods that are popular for this time of year include noodles for long life, dumplings, and many fun pink desserts. Everything looks so pretty and festive. In Hong Kong the Chinese New Year celebration is pretty big and there are fireworks in the Harbor.
The Chinese also love using a play on words by using homonyms for foods that symbolize happiness, health, and prosperity for the New Year. Many of these food items are often used in dishes during the Chinese New Year dinners and parties. Here are some examples:
Seaweed, especially black moss, Fat Choy, (in Chinese: é«®èœ; pinyin: fÃ cÃ i; literal meaning: hair vegetable). The two syllables of Fat Choy in Cantonese sound the same as a Cantonese Chinese New Year greeting “Gung hei faat choi” (æå–œå‘è´¢) meaning “congratulations and be prosperous”; additional meanings: – good luck, exceeding wealth.
Seeds – lotus seeds, watermelon seeds – having a large number of children ç±½ [zÇ]
Shrimp (å°è™¾; xiÇŽoxiÄ) – happiness and good fortune.
Shitake, Black mushroom (å†¬è‡; dÅnggÅ«) -longevity, sizing opportunities
Slender Noodle (ç´°ç²‰; xÃ¬ fÄ›) – see glass noodle
Snowpeas (è·è˜è±†; hÃ©lÃ¡ndÃ²u) – unity
Spring roll (æ˜¥å·; chÅ«njuÇŽn) – wealth (the shape represents a gold bar)
Sweet corn (ç”œçŽ‰ç±³; tiÃ¡n yÃ¹mÇ) – growth, increase
Sweets, (ç³–é£Ÿ; tÃ¡ngshÃ, ç³–æžœ;tÃ¡ngguÇ’) rice cake (å¹´ç³•; niÃ¡n’gÄo) – safety, good fortune and ‘sweeten’ the new year
Tangerine (æ©˜; jÃº) – luck
Also, the decor is red for good luck so many homes are decorated with red lanterns and red tablecloths during this time of year. Modern homes do red accents that compliment their more contemporary decor.

In this week’s episode 10 in Season 2 of Real Housewives of Atlanta, our favorite bad girl Kim was seen with a pair of crazy shoes with feathers sticking out of them. I am not sure I would condone those shoes as a fashion yes…however RED is a big color this season and Kim is always wearing high fashion on the cutting edge like her Dolce & Gabanna turtleneck and Versace black dress in past episodes. To get the look of those red feather shoes…
Here are some of my favorites for this season in red from some of my favorite designers. I love these Christian Louboutin red shoes with the fringe. Looks like feathers but better no?
Watch this episode for yourselves now: Kim is engaged to Big Poppa. Is he married? What do you think of that Don’t be tardy for the party song? Is this going to be on Kiss FM soon?
I love her style because she does not wear your run of the mill suits and instead reaches for cutting edge designers to show her own personal style. Click here to buy her Thakoon Kimono Dress now or click the photo of the model below to buy it now.
