Chinese New Year is tomorrow and I have been in a dash to get my home in order before it starts. It's been tricky to do since I've had a busy schedule lately. There are several traditions and rituals that families have and while I'm not the most traditional person, I do honor them for my home since I find it important to who I am.
My family is from Shanghai so when I saw this Marc Jacobs city beanie, I immediately wanted it. There were several city names available (i.e. San Francisco) but, I really wanted to represent Shanghai. The beanie is inexpensive so I probably could have gotten away with buying both city names but, it felt more special to me to have one.
I don't have a strong connection to blood family members that are alive anymore (my parents have already passed) so I'm all for whatever gesture I can do to honor my heritage - especially during Chinese New Year.
