color block,

Crystal's Closet: Color-blocking with peplum orange.

April 10, 2013 Crystal Phuong 2 Comments

Hi everyone,

Color-blocking trend is back...on my blog! I believe this trend will never be faded away no matter what year we live in. As Summer is just around the corner, it IS a perfect excuse to rock your colorful outfit. I can't wait to see more vibrant colors on the street this year.  

Besides, I wanted to brighten up myself (*my mood to be exact), so I decided to dress up more lively. Here is what I wore on Monday when I came back to work from my holiday.

Basic work shirt with peplum skirt. 

Love how the royal blue and orange compliments each other. 

As these 2 colors are already very loud, I decided to keep the accessories very minimal and simple. 

Layered gold necklaces. 

with my favorite, motivating arm-candy. 

and skull earrings to add little edgy to this look. 

Shirt: G2000 (Similar here)
Skirt: Alice & Olivia (old) (Similar here)
Heels: Charles & Keith (old)
Necklace: Forever21
Earrings: ASOS (Similar here)
Bracelet: Lovisa (old) (Similar here)
Watch: Swarovski

That's all I have for today. I hope you like the outfit and hope it inspires you enough to try something new (if you have never worn color-blocked outfit before).

Before ending this entry, I just wanted to share with you a great news. I woke up this morning to a wonderful email telling me that I'm featured on You can read the article HERE!  It's a digital newspaper in United States that features everything about fashion, beauty, politic, economy, etc...What a honor to have my outfit featured on their page! When I first started writing about Fashion, I had a dream that one day, I would be featured in some fashion websites. Believe it or not? It happened and I'm slowly getting there!

So my dear friends out there, please don't stop dreaming because one day your dream can come true! :)

Thank you so much for reading and supporting my blog once again.
