Crystal's Closet: Weekly Wardrobe (Ep 18, 19) & dancing at Avalon's Got Talent!

Aloha everyone! 

Weekend is here and it's a long holiday for us. "Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri" to all my Muslim friends. No matter how good or bad your week was, it's time to let it go, relax and stay focus on what's next. 

This is gonna be a long blog entry which combines 2 Weekly Wardrobe episodes into 1 and a lot of photos for you to see. Sorry for delaying though, I was so busy and totally didn't have time to blog. 

Anyway, here are the outfit photos of what I wore the week before last week.

White stripe on black chiffon shirt from Forever21 with white pants. I don't understand why many people don't like to wear white pants. They are so elegant, pure and chic. Most of the time, when I recommend my friends to try on the white pants, they always give me the same objection "It's easy to get dirty", "It makes me look fat" or "It looks gay" (for a guy). That's not true. Believe me! Whether it's "Yay" or "Nay", it really depends on how you wear it, what to mix, what to pair with a white pants that compliments your body and look. But first of all, you must be willing to try it on.

Lace shirt, hot pink pencil skirt and a pony tail hairstyle. When wearing lace, sheer or see-through outfit, don't forget to wear same color camisole or solid color bra with full coverage inside. Remember, you want to look sexy, not slutty.

In reality, I think I'm a super-woman who can run and do many things at once. After work, I went for 2 hours heavy dance practice with my partner at Scape. We were practicing for a talent competition on Sunday. Only 4 days practicing for a real show, that's how heavy our practices were. I love dancing but I hate last minute preparing like that and I keep complaining it to my partner all the time. He just ignores coz he knows i will still do it in the end. I'm so soft-hearted, I think. 

 That's my dance partner was trying to feed me some foods after my dance practice. Very sweet of him! 

Cute chiffon top from Forever21 with a HUGE heart shape in front. My size might be small but my heart is bigger than yours :D.

Went for dance practice and rehearsal again as there was only 1 day left to our competition and I still couldn't remember our routine yet. It was changed completely and I had to remember everything within 4 days. It was crazy. 
 I and my partner on the cab heading to Avalon club for our rehearsal. 

Competition day. I got myself prepared with all the makeup, costumes and accessories. 

 Smokey eyes makeup and red lips. What do you think? 

 with costumes and accessories on. We were pretty much ready. 

 One more pose before getting up on stage. 

In action. 

"I'm flying without wings"

Thanked to all the audiences, supporters. We were selected into final of Avalon's Got Talent- a talent competition organized by Avalon club. After finishing our dance, I quickly left the place and headed home as it was 1.30am. I had to get up early at 7.30am for work -_-

Despite sleeping at 3am, I managed to get up at 7.30am sharp without feeling tired or exhausted at all. A little sleepiness, yes but that's about all. Don't ask me how and where did I get such great energy. I have no idea. 

 Here I was looking so fresh and sweet in my Hi-low royal blue shirtdress from F21 with the butterfly necklaces.

Vintage look with a new pair of vintage earrings I just bought, peach color chiffon blouse paired up with beautiful hi-low skirt from Forever21. I super love this skirt because it made me feel extra feminine. It gave me so much movement and freedom when I walked and created such a beautiful picture frame when the wind blew it up. 

 Simple makeup and hair. Notice my ultra-long earrings? :D

Double seriousness with black chiffon blouse and suede circle skirt. It's also a good combination, color- balance between black and beige colors. While black color sometimes makes you look slightly older than your actual age, beige/ nude color usually makes you look younger. Another tip, whenever you want to make yourself look younger or feel younger, try on a full circle skirt. It's a Sweet  Young Thing kinda clothing that you should not miss out. :D

I was too busy on Thursday running around with few meetings back to back so I didn't have time to snap photo of my outfit. And Yes, I was lazy too. 

Party time! I went out for dinner and drink with my friend on Friday night at Club street and was wearing my favorite bodycon dress from Forever21. Got this dress for only S$17 and it turned out to be amazingly beautiful...on me *evil laugh*.

Another day preparing for our final dance at Avalon's Got Talent. I and my partner were so stressed out because we had a very difficult dance step that we couldn't get it done properly. It required our great coordination, strength, stamina and timing...Of course many injuries, bruises and pain too. And guess what? We only had 1 day to practice for it. I was so nervous. Luckily, on Saturday, we had a chance to practice at the most expensive, beautiful and luxurious dance studio ever in Marina Bay Sands hotel. The dance studio is huge with spectacular view all around. We danced much better in the studio like that. I wish it was mine -_-

 Can you see how beautiful this dance studio is?

Got ready for the dance competition with my hair done first. I was wearing a cute bare back barbie doll top-dress which soon will be sold in My Crystal's Closet online store :D

With costume and makeup done. 

 I and my partner. We both got so nervous because we were the first contestant who performed. 

Photo taking with other male dancers in the house. 

Another cam-whoring shoot before we went up. 

and here we were doing what we do best. 

 Spinning while audiences were screaming our name. 

My signature pose: Upside-down split. 

Thank God! We did it well. The crowd was crazy, screaming from beginning til the end of the show. It felt so great to be on stage, to perform, to show my passion and love.

We didn't win the 1st prize though, the group of 7 guys who danced hiphop won but we really enjoyed the time, the moment. I still remembered when I finished my dance and was walking down, everyone tried to hold my hand, gave me big smiles and said "You are amazing! It was awesome performance. Congrat". That made me feel so happy. 

The competition ended around 1.30am and I quickly wrapped up everything to go back. Again, I gotta get up at 7.30am for work. Believe it or not? I was so sleepy and exhausted that I dozed off while I was walking to taxi stand. I got home at 1.50am, had a shower, washed my hair, removed makeup and went to bed at freaking 3.30am. 

Now you know why I couldn't blog in the past 2 weeks? Lolz! *just kidding*. Ok! Not gonna give any excuse anymore, I'll try to blog more often because I know if I don't, you will miss me like mad. 

For now, just enjoy your long holiday and don't think too much about work, stress, problem, etc...Your mind and your body need to rest. Give them a favor. 

Me too! Time to zZzzzzz

See you in next post.
