Crystal's Closet: Weekly Wardrobe (Episode 25) & get a glimpse at my latest "accessories"

Hey guys!

Happy October! I hope this is gonna be an awesome month for all of us. To me it will be awesome because I will be busy with work (as usual) and will go for some holiday trips. I felt so excited already! 

My September wasn't fantastic as what I expected but at least I've achieved some major goals I set earlier. I'm going to share with you what are they in this blog entry. My third week of September in photos.

Sheer orange blouse and beige color pants are one of my favorite color combos. They always complement and emphasize each other. This is also one of the typical modern, chic styles that is suitable for any girl.  

Look who has the same taste? ;)

Accessorizing is a key for this type of plain, neutral outfit.

Beige pants: Michael Kors (skinny pants) or Valentino (wide legs)
Red chiffon blouse: Dorothy Perkins
Belt: B-Low the belt - Shoes: JustFab  
Ring: Z Designs (similar) - Crystal bangle: Fragments (similar)

Green bow over the pleated chiffon skirt for busy day at work. I love long skirts or maxi dresses especially the pleated ones. They are effortlessly stylish, feminine, classy and extremely comfortable. If you are worried about not knowing what type of outfit will suite your body shape, just put on the maxi or pleated skirts. You can call them your best friend.

Sleeveless blouse: Raoul (similar)
Pleated chiffon skirt: Forever21

Something fresh and sweet to brighten up Wednesday. The short circle dress is my all time favorite. It does not only make you look younger but also brings out the sweetness and femininity. I call it a "Sweet Young Thing" kinda outfit. Wanna be casual for weekend? Pair them up with flat sandals or a pair of high heels for a night out or date.

 Thursday came in pink.

I love this outfit very much or to be exact, I love how I styled this outfit with matching accessories. It was so spontaneous. I happened to see this pink necklace when I went out with friend and immediately I thought of pairing it with my pink pencil skirt. At that moment, I knew that I must bring this piece home. This is the final result.

Watch: Swarovski 

It was a big, important day for me as I had my final driving test. I was pretty nervous even though everyone kept saying I would do great, they had confidence in me. They made me feel good and bad at the same time. It would be very shameful If I failed again. Disaster! My driving instructor even advised me not to wear so fashionable and stylish as it might cause unwanted judgement by the tester toward me. So I was trying my very best to dress up as humbly and simply as much as I could: just a basic pants and white blouse.

Pants: Banana Republic (similar)
Sleeveless ruffle blouse: Rachel Roy

And YES! I was wearing that heels to drive the car and one of my driving instructors kept telling me how amazed he was at me to see I was able to control the pedals while driving. Best part yet? I freaking PASSED MY DRIVING TEST! It was a HUGE relief once I saw the result and I almost wanted to scream out loud. I'm sure you would probably react the same way. 

My result! 

Everything went so smooth on that day by chance. I drove the car number 7 which is my lucky number of all time, when I saw the car and met the tester, I just felt so relieved and I knew that I would do fine during the test. It's so hard to explain! Whoever wished me, prayed for me, thank you so much. I didn't disappoint you at least. :D

And to reward myself with the biggest achievement of the year, I went to buy an iPhone5 on Saturday which it was first officially released on Friday. I was super lucky that I didn't have to queue for hours like many people. Some started queuing since 6am in the morning before the shop even opened. Salute them! I got my iPhone 5 without having to queue at all. Thank to my personal assistant, Carmen, lolz.

Presenting to you, the beautiful baby number 5 has just joined Crystal's family. 

iPhone 4 vs. iPhone 5, the two are now fighting for my attention. Unfortunately, iPhone5 won because I only had 1 phone line :(

Saturday night, I was invited to the exclusive Formula 1 Fashion Party on board a luxurious German ship and floating hotel, Lili Marleen at Keppel Bay. It was, indeed, very interesting and fun event with live music on the yacht, fashion show, drink and networking. Here is what I wore for the event. 

Bandage dress: Herve Leger 
Accessories: Fantasy Jewelry Box (similar)
Clutch: Michael Kors 

Caught some celebrities in this dress too

Arriving at Stylo F1 Fashion Party. 

Did I say the event was held at the floating hotel earlier? Here it is! 

Beautiful floating hotel that I couldn't resist myself from taking photo with it. We had free flow of beer, champagne while social networking and watching the fashion show. I had 2 bottles of beer and I thought I was drunk already as I saw the wall in front of me moving up and down. That awkward moment when I realized I was actually on a yacht, lolz.

Lili Marleen, a 250 ft. Malaysian tall ship celebrating her maiden voyage to Singapore. The event was hosted in partnership with the owners of the German-built Lili Marleen, named after the famous World War 2 song by Marlene Dietrich and Lale Andersen. 

The fashion showcase featured mythical sea creatures was brought to life by the creative use of recycled materials and wastes from our daily life. How interesting!

Models of the night...

Group models. 

I took one photo with them too but I looked like a tiny midget among them so I'm not gonna post it up. Very depressing to look at it!

This fun and happening event also ended my week on a high note with full of excitement, satisfaction, fulfillment. I accomplished what I need to, had chance to meet many new people, learnt new things every single day and most important thing, I had an opportunity to share them with you, my readers.
