Crystal's Closet: The Power of Emerald

February 07, 2013 Crystal Phuong 0 Comments

Hi everyone,

This is going to be a very quick blog entry from me before I fly off to Hanoi tomorrow morning. I was bored while doing my packing half way and didn't know what else to pack. So I thought, "Let have a break by doing something else more interesting". I'm quite sure after I finish this blog post, I'll probably know what else do I need to bring to Vietnam *as usual*. 

On Monday, I had a meeting at my client's office where it is very close to the Botanical Garden. Because I wasn't prepared for outfit of the day photo-shoot, so I purposely dressed up pretty simple that day. I need a break from "trying to look glamorous all the time", you know? Being a full time fashion blogger is never an easy job.

Anyway, back to Botanical Garden subject. When we were there, we couldn't resist a quick photo snapping session as everything around us made a perfect backdrop. Besides, not everyday I could be at Botanical Garden for photo taking. So here we go! 

Please, let's pay attention on my Emerald jewelry instead.  

Emerald is POWER STONE that offers physical, emotional and spiritual balance. It's most frequently recommended for the "wounded healer". It also encourages spiritual growth, clear vision, memory, faith, intelligence and communication, inspiration, joy, intuition, clairvoyance, sensuality, love, romance, beauty, harmony, tranquility, serenity, clarity, cleansing, justice, friendship and unity. 

Pairing my emerald stone jewelry with white dress wasn't a tough choice to make as white color works perfectly with any opposite colors on the color wheel. But it was my coincident choice that emerald is a the symbol of balancing and healing whilst white color means purity, innocence and goodness. They complemented each other in one way or another or at least are related. 

Green shoes to make the entire look complete.

"Holding on and staying focused. Every cloud has a silver lining". That is my caption for this photo :D

I hope you enjoy this refreshing look as much as I do. In fact, I think I need to wear emerald stone jewelry more often. It will help me to stay focused on what I'm doing, to give me clear vision and healing power to face many obstacles and challenges. 

What would be your favorite gemstone? Do you believe in the power of gemstone to our daily life? Share with me in the comment section.

Back to my packing now, I have 5 hours left....
