VIFW 2016: MONOCHROMATIC

VIFW 2016: MONOCHROMATIC


Vietnam International Fashion Week 2016- Day 5 streetstyle- Crystal Phuong

 Photo by Long Hoang

If my memory serves me well, I had these outfit photos taken on my birthday when I was in Hanoi during Vietnam Fashion Week. Instead of attending the shows, I spent the day with my family. We went for a walk, had a delicious birthday lunch, and had so much laughter.  I'm not a big fan of cake so no birthday cake and no candles needed. The presence of people that I love means everything to me as I haven't had a birthday celebration with the family for more than 10 years (God! That's a long time).

As I grow older, I'm more aware of how short our life can be and how precious time is. Happiness can be as simple as waking up early on a weekend, having a tasty breakfast, going for a walk with your loved ones, and watching a favorite movie to end the day. The more I try to live a simpler life, the clearer my mind and heart will be. My style is an obvious evidence of how I've transformed.

I would choose black and white over neon and orange, a monochromatic outfit over a colorful printed one. If all else fails, I'll go with an all-beige outfit. It works every time.

VIFW 2016- ON POINT


Crystal Phuong- Vietnam International Fashion Week 2016- Streetstyle day 3

Instead of a loud and colorful outfit seen on day 1 and day 2, I opted for a polished look with a long vest layered over a turtleneck top and wide-leg pants on day 3 of the Vietnam International Fashion Week. 

Thanks REVOLVE for this On Point vest (that's the actual product's name), I'm able to add one more item to my growing long vest collection. Please bear with me while I'm still obsessed with this statement piece, you might see another similar outfit in the next couple of weeks, who knows.

VIFW 2016: ARMY GREEN


Crystal Phuong- Vietnam International Fashion Week 2016- Streetstyle day 2

Photo by: Katsu Phuong

It seems like forever ago since the last time we communicated on this page. I'm fully aware that time has slowly left me quite far behind while I was on the airplane, in the hotel, on the mountain, or by the beach in January. With that said, it's time for a much-needed catch up over here.

As an old saying goes, "Good things come to those who wait. Better things come to those who are patient." I hope this army green outfit fromVietnam International Fashion Week last year is worth the wait. More blog posts will be live at the end of this week for sure.

In the meantime, if you are celebrating Lunar New Year, I wish you and your loved ones a wonderful time ahead.  May this year shower you with love, laughter, and great health.

Thank you so much for reading!

VIFW 2016- HANOI, I'M HOME

VIFW 2016- HANOI, I'M HOME


Crystal Phuong- Vietnam International Fashion Week 2016- Fall Winter- Day 1

Whenever someone asks me about Hanoi, they always make me feel so happy and emotional. Not only because Hanoi has the best coffee and Pho (the famous Vietnamese beef noodle soup), but also it's a place where I call "Home". If I wasn't living in Singapore now, my life would be much different in Hanoi. I wouldn't be a fashion & travel blogger, but a dance instructor instead. 

It's crazy to think how a certain decision can lead us to a completely different direction in our life. My story is an example. 

I never knew what a blog was and never thought of writing about fashion. I had no interest in any fashion week. My life was all about dance practices, dance competitions, performances, and teaching classes. Guess what? After 11 years, I came back home with two suitcases full of beautiful shoes, clothes, and bags. But it wasn't for any dance competition like how I used to dream of my return trip when I just left the country. I was back to Hanoi for the Vietnam International Fashion Week.  

It was the first Fall Winter International Fashion Week organized in the capital of Vietnam. It was also the longest time I've spent in Hanoi since I left the city in 2004.

IT'S THAT SPARKLING TIME OF THE YEAR

IT'S THAT SPARKLING TIME OF THE YEAR


Crystal Phuong- Merry Christmas 2016

It's that sparkling time of the year when the streets are filled with bright neon lights and colorful ornaments, I'll start thinking of something special for you. Last year was a white Christmas card. This year, I created a simple card, inspired by this green sequin dress (thanks to REVOLVE) and the blue Tiffany's Christmas wall.  

Thank you so much for your love and support. I'll share my 2016 in review in the next blog post, but for now, I wish you and your family a very merry Christmas. Wherever you are, whatever you do, or whatever struggles that you are facing right now, I hope you can put it down for a moment, spend some time with your loved ones. Even if you are alone, take a minute to appreciate what you have in life, enjoy every little thing that comes your way. Most importantly, be healthy and be happy. 

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
