Married in the year of the Dragon: The Dress...

The name of the tradition red Chinese wedding dress is Qi pao. Since Chinese New year 2012 falls on January 23rd. We looked for a warm dress and love this one with the faux feather trim. This little bride is so cute I think.

It's good luck for her to walk from her house under a red umbrella which I think is supposed to give her good luck to have many children or something... not sure. Many Chinese have a great love for children. When I visited San Fransico, I had a new baby. A dozen or so Chinese people just on the street would stop me and tell me in English or Chinese how beautiful my baby was. That's when they won my heart.
Children are treasures. Get the red umbrella :)
