Crystal's Closet: Weekly Wardrobe (Ep27) and a short getaway trip.

A new blog entry after this blog post, so don't forget to check it out!

I'm finally back Singapore and not going to travel anywhere until January 2013 (most probably, I hope). It's fun to travel but it's not when you realize you have not even had time to unpack, it's time to pack again. And while I was complaining about how much I hate packing and unpacking in between trips, my luggage was lost when I landed in Hanoi. It was really like Karma, wish came true! I didn't have to unpack & pack at all even when I was home. TigerAirways is still finding my luggage (as what they have been updating me. I hope they really are making an effort to search for it) but no news yet :(.  Anyway, I'll talk more about this stupid incident in the next blog entry.

Now, it's time for fashion to take place: New episode of my Weekly Wardrobe. Pardon me, this episode was 2 weeks ago before I flew to Bali. I'm catching up!

Monday: Urban Chic & Sleek
Got my Monday heated up by all the earth colors: oranges, reds, yellows, browns and that's also how I came up with the name "Urban chic". Peplum orange skirt with matching accessories. Black shoes followed the black chiffon top. It was a way to boot your energy up on blue Monday as most people used to call.

Color-blocking on the street. I wore this dress 2, 3 months ago in one of the Crystal's Closet episodes and this was my second time wearing it. Still love the material, the color combination, the style and comfort. 

Got matching colored accessories too.

Something sweet came to office on Tuesday. 2 new blazers from my sponsor Sheinside travelled miles and miles to reach me. Please welcome them to Crystal's Closet.

At night, I went to have dinner with my client at this beautiful club house. The foods just tasted much better right here 

Club L Wallpaper Print Dress from ASOS for mid-week outfit. "This printed dress by Club L has been crafted from a stretch fabric with contrast wall paper print. The details include a round neckline, sleeveless styling, a fitted high waist, with a patent pin buckle belt and a flared skirt with full swing pleat detail. The dress has been cut with a fit and flare shape and a short length." (*from  

Up- close of the wall paper print detail. As the dress spoke by itself, I decided to minimize accessories as much as possible.

Pretty quickly the week ended just like that! I always feel like my time is stolen and It's even faster when you are on holiday. I had really great time last 2 weeks. Not only because I had super productive weeks at work but also had a great holiday to a beautiful paradise on earth. I'm still editing photos from the Bali trip (over 200 photos to be done) plus a video and I can't wait to share with you guys my Bali experience. Til then, stay tuned for the next Weekly Wardrobe episode which I'll show you photos of my Vietnam trip to attend the 10 years re-union party. It's wild, crazy and hell lot of fun *wink*

See you soon
