Today is the beginning of a new year. Chinese New Year, that is! Chinese zodiac signs are based on a twelve-year cycle, with a different animal representative for each year. This year’s animal is the snake. People born in the year of the Snake are said to be wise, financially secure, sympathetic, determined, passionate, and perceptive. As Obama explained, ”in Chinese tradition, snakes represent wisdom, and a thoughtful approach to tackling the challenges before us”. It’s going to be a great year for everyone and we hope that it will be an especially great year for all those celebrating their 12th or 24th or 36th or 48th… you get what we mean… birthdays.
In true Fly Gyal style we’ve decided to celebrate the Year of the Snake by rounding up fourteen of our favorite snake fashion items. Enjoy!
