Crystal's Closet: Polka Dot Blouse On Red Peplum.


Hi everyone,

Just a quick hello from me and I hope you've had a great start to the week so far.


I wore this cute polka dot outfit a week ago when I was running in between meetings. It was a hot and sunny day so I thought chiffon blouse would be a great idea in such crazy weather. I and Alicia (my current favorite photographer :D) while waiting for a taxi, we managed to snap some quick shots. 

Polka dot is such a fun, classic and versatile statement piece that will look good on everyone. If you follow my fashion journey here long enough, you've probably seen I rocked this trend few times here and here


When it comes to color pairing for black and white polka dot, there are few colors that I'm always going back to. One of them is black polka dot on  white blouse with red pants/ skirt or accessories. I can say this is the MOST PREFERRED style by many celebrities, fashionistas and ME :D !





Loving the beaded necklace I bought in Bali last year. 


and the favorite arm candy. I wear some of these bracelets most of the time. :D

::Outfit::
Polka Dot blouse: Forever21 (old)- (Similar here)
Peplum skirt: Forever21 (old)- (Similar here)
Belt: Dolce Donna- (Similar here)
Rings: Forever21 Cutout heart ring - Oasap owl ring
Handbag: Oasap
Watch: Swarvoski
Bracelet: Forever21

So far, I've been wearing quite numbers of polka dot outfits but I must say, this look is by far my favorite. It's easy to wear, fun, classic, feminine (Yes, that's my style code) and it works well on most of us (ladies). Let me know what you think about this style or you if you have similar style to show, please feel free to leave me a comment below. 

Last but not least, in case you don't know, I'm having an awesome GIVEAWAY to my 2 luckiest blog readers. You'll have chance to win one of the beautiful watch (sponsored by Moment Watches). Please hurry up because the giveaway will be closed on 11th May. I look forward to receiving your entry. Join HERE

Thank you so much for reading! I'll come back to you with a new giveaway in the next blog entry. Stay tuned ;)
Love,
Crystal

Levi's 501 Interpretation Event


Event/ Product Launch:

Hi everyone,
Last week was such a hectic and crazy week for me with lot of works and events. One of the exciting events I was invited to attend by OmySG was Levi's 501 Interpretation

I'm sure you probably know or hear about Levi's but not many of you know the history of this brand. Let me share with you:

The Levi’s® brand epitomizes classic American style and effortless cool. Since their invention by Levi Strauss & Jacob Davis in 1873, Levi’s® jeans have become the most recognizable and imitated clothing in the world – capturing the imagination and loyalty of people for generations. Today, the Levi’s® brand portfolio continues to evolve through a relentless pioneering and innovative spirit that is unparalleled in the apparel industry.

This Spring/Summer 2013, the Levi’s® brand is marking the 140th anniversary of its iconic 501® jeans by introducing a non-denim Levi’s® 501® collection for the first time. Breaking with tradition, yet maintaining the product’s true essence and timeless spirit, the three-piece non-denim collection is available in true chino, chalk blue and mineral red. The brand will also unveil the next generation in Levi’s® 501® jeans, which feature subtle and thoughtful changes to the design aesthetic, tailoring the product for the pioneers of today.

Levi’s® 501® jeans hold a seminal place in fashion history and over the last 140 years have developed into a cultural icon. From presidents to movie stars, rock stars to fashion icons, and artists to pioneers in technology – Levi’s® 501® jeans are among the most worn and loved jeans in the world.

To celebrate the 140th anniversary, Levi's held an event in ION Orchard with appearance of 4 local celebrities namely: Felicia Chin, Xu Ya Hui, Tosh Zhang and Ian Fang. 

Posing at the back-drop with local celebrities before the event started. From left: Ya Hui, Felicia Chin, myself, Ian Fang & Tosh Zhang.

There was a huge crowd in ION Orchard that day. They came to watch and to support their favorite celebrities. 



Ivy Tan from  YESS 933FM was the emcee that day. 


Event started with our local celebrities short catwalk and introduction showing their way of wearing Levi's outfits. 



Each of them had their own uniqueness in wearing their given outfit. While Ya Hui's outfit was fun and funky, Felicia's one was sexy and feminine and Tosh's look was cool and rocky (went well with his hairstyle), Ian's outfit seemed to be more casual and neat. 



After introduction, all celebrities were invited to join some games using Levi's apparels. 



Identifying different parts on Levi's jeans seemed not tough enough to challenge Felicia, she & her luckiest fan won the first game. 



At second games, each celebrity was asked to use Levi's apparels to style 8 Days Shirtless guy, whose model had the highest vote would win the games. 




Felicia & her model. 




Ian Fang got himself ready. 



and this was Ian Fang's style on his model



Ya Hui with her 8 Days Shirtless guy. 

Here was what Ya Hui styled for him. She and her model won the games with this most voted outfit




Last but not least, Tosh Zhang and his model. 

and the final look. 


Which outfit do you like most? Do you want to win any Levi's outfit after reading this blog entry? :D If the answer is YES, here is a chance for you:


From 8 April, Log on to Levis501.com.sg to share your 501® style interpretation! 
Simply upload a photo of yourself in a pair of Levi’s® 501® jeans, and include a short write-up explaining your style inspiration.

That's it from me today. Good luck everyone! :)
I'll talk to you soon :)
Love,
Crystal

{EVENT}: ROYAL DRAGON LUXURY VODKA LAUNCH


Last week, I was invited to attend a very special event to celebrate the exclusive launch of Royal Dragon Vodka- Superior Vodka from Russia in Singapore.

Talk about the Royal Dragon Luxury vodka, what is so special behind that name?

Royal Dragon luxury vodka is an epitome of artisanal mastery, combining the best ultra-luxe elements from around the world - the superior Russian vodka, 23-carat edible Swiss gold leaves, distinctive hand-blown bottles by Italian master craftsmen, perfectly-shaped certified diamonds from Belgium embedded and alluring Asian dragon shooting through its centre.
When I arrived at the event, I was so attracted by the unique bottle held by the model when we were taking some photos at the entrance. 


Let me show you up-close of what's inside: 



THIS is an amazing piece of art, to me! 


Come closer



Isn't it beautiful? You can even see the 23 carat gold leaves underneath the bottle. 




Royal Dragon luxury vodka is crafted from the finest organic winter harvest rye in Russia and goes through five rounds of distillation through charcoal using a century-old copper pot to enhance the vodka's high-definition purity and clarity of taste. Royal Dragon delivers a drink that tastes outstanding - whether enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in the mix with your favourite cocktail. So smooth and clean is the luxurious white spirit, it retains its desirable taste even at room temperature.

Talking about the taste, I had 3 glasses of vodka with orange that night. It was so smooth that I didn't feel like I was drinking vodka at all. I mean, I've been trying so many different types of vodkas, some claimed to be the best one, but the smoothness of those vodkas is nowhere near to the standard of Royal Dragon Vodka. I'm not paid to say this so please trust me, you HAVE TO try once for yourself and you'll know that I'm right. 




The launch was held successfully at Bacchanalia- a hottest and latest restaurant in town. I've never been there before (didn't even know about this restaurant) even though I passed by their place many time. 




Loved what I saw here,  lovely decoration


with very warm ambience and better yet, I met some old friends there


With Blogger friend, Roxanne Chia

with my PA Carmen. The theme of the party was black and gold, that's why you see everyone of us was in black & gold kind of outfit.

Beautiful Ice Dragon Vodka Fountain- the spirit of the drink :)

Mr Michel Morren, CEO and founder of Royal Dragon Luxury Vodka revealing collection. 

Talk about the CEO Michel Morren, He is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for producing "The World's Most Exclusive and Expensive Cellular Phone Ever Sold". It was sold for a record €1,000,000 (approximately US$1.2 million) at the Millionaire Fair in Cannes, France. 

Michel says: "I was the first to put diamonds on a phone. And now I am taking vodka to an unprecedented level of luxury. We are creating a new market niche, and I am extremely positive about the future of luxury spending in Asia Pacific." 

Being crowned 'The Most Innovative Spirit Brand 2012-2013' by the prestigious China Spirits Awards has sealed Royal Dragon's status as a highly-coveted masterpiece. In addition to Hong Kong and Singapore, Royal Dragon is currently blazing its way through UK, Australia, China, Thailand and Europe and on its way to take out the super-premium vodka category in the US. 







The superior balanced vodka comes in four collections for discerning connoisseurs: The Elite, The Imperial, The Emperor 'Limited Edition' 888, and The Customised CollectionPrices range from S$290 for a 750ml Imperial to S$2,390 for a 6L Imperial. The Emperor Limited Edition and The Customized Collection are available upon request at rdv@alphire.com.sg.

Crystal's Closet: How to wear a jumpsuit


Hi everyone,

Today, I'm going to share with you some of my personal styling tips when it comes to the all-in-one outfit. It's none other than the jumpsuit that I'm talking about. 

 Do you know when did the jumpsuit make an appearance in common and high fashion? It's somewhere around 19080s. Since then, it's been always one of the most favorite outfits of many celebrities whether for casual occasion or red-carpet appearance. 

I fell in love with jumpsuit since I was 6 years old and I can still remember that I asked my mom to buy for me many different types of jumpsuit whenever we went shopping. Now, I can't wear it everyday like I used to even though the love for it has never changed. I have to say jumpsuit is such a sophisticated, sexy and picky piece. Many people love it but not everyone can pull it off. 

If you are in love with jumpsuit and want to try it on yourself, here are some rules for you

1. Go for All Black. 

Black is the safest choice for everyone especially when you try to hide your actual weight and body size, it gives you an instant slimming effect, trust me.


2. Proportion is a key:

With jumpsuit, you can cover your weakness on the body. For instant, if you have beautiful legs but a big tummy (unfortunately), opt for a slouchy top with slim fit legs. Want to add on extra hotness? Plunging neckline would be my recommendation (*same like what I'm wearing here). On the other side, if you have broad shoulder, find the jumpsuit whose pants are wide leg and flowing.








3. Less is More.
Keep everything else simple as jumpsuit is already a statement piece itself. And please don't add too many colors into it. It will not work.



4. Let your waist speak! 
If your jumpsuit doesn't have a drawstring midsection, a belt is a MUST to flatter your body figure. Like what I was wearing here is a medium size silver belt and even I was wearing a lose jumpsuit, my waist didn't get lost :D



::Outfit::
Jumpsuit: Oasap (Similar here and here)
Heels: Jessica Simpson 
Accessories: Forever21 bracelet- 
Alexander McQueen Skull Bracelet
ASOS ring- Forever21 necklace
Sunglasses: RayBan
Belt: ForeverNew


These are my most simple and standard rules to wear the jumpsuit outfit.  After all, if you love wearing it so much but are still reluctant and hesitate to wear,  I would say "Just try it but don't forget to layer the jumpsuit with a blazer to make it look more subtle. It works like wonder!"

I hope you like this fun outfit and please leave me comment, Tweet me or Instagram me a photo of you wearing a jumpsuit, I would love to see how you wear it :)

Last but not least, just in case you don't know, there is a hot FASHION GIVEAWAY ongoing right now in this blog, scroll down and read at the previous entry. Please don't forget to join the giveaway too and share it with your friends. 

Thank you so much for reading once again. 
Love,

{CRYSTAL'S CLOSET}: TURQUOISE SHEER & MOMENT WATCH GIVEAWAY


Sponsored post

Hi everyone!

Today, Crystal's Closet episode is proudly sponsored by Moment Watches from Hong Kong. The kind peeps at Moment Watches sent me the beautiful watch of my choice on the day I flew to US. It has been 2 weeks since then and now only I have time to write about it (I did post the photo of the watch on Instagram though). 

First and foremost, let me share with you some information about the brand itself:

Moment Watches is a premium brand whose fine range of watch collections offers modern designs technical precision and distinctive aesthetics that tell a meaningful story. Behind each one of their timepieces, there is a story being told. Each story uniquely caters to enhance the wearer's experience and engage the emotions. Each model is painstakingly designed to elicit a positive response, inspiring us to make each moment count. Experiences are lost forever unless we remember them, capture them, savour them, share them. Moment Watches want to contribute to these experiences and enable to tell you to pass them on. Moment Watches makes a wonderful gift that will mark special moment forever. 

Out of 20 over designs, this one caught my attention: 
Be adventurous. A moment to face your fear. 

What is so special about this watch?

The Brazillian novelist Paulo Coelho said, "If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine. It is lethal." Claire knows what it is like to be in a dangerous rut, as shown in this watch design which is Claire's hand drawn illustration of an important moment in her life. The black box signifies her safe routine life, which was governed by fear of stepping out of her comfort zone. Throwing caution to the wind, she picked up her life and pursued her dream: to live in Sydney, Australia. The fear started to melt away into drops of new life, blossoming into a vibrant landscape. So break out of any routine that is stifling your life and watch as new experiences flourish into something beautiful.

And as I was asked to do a styling with this watch, here is what I had come up with: 

 Turquoise sheer blouse paired with white pants, white bag and of course turquoise colored accessories. If you are talking about Happy, Love Moment, turquoise definitely is one of my recommended colors to you. It's lovely, youthful and fresh.





 I purposely chose the turquoise arm-candy to match with the watch and coincidentally, my handbag has similar colored detail too. How gorgeous!


Close up of the arm-swag. 


and the beautiful watch on me together with my matching colored necklace and earrings. 



Up-close and personal shot of the watch to satisfy your thirst. :D

 Isn't it beautiful?

Handbag: Forever New (old)
Shoes: Heels (old) - (Similar here)

There is one thing special about this watch that makes me surprised is It glows in the dark. How awesome is that? You just have to get one for yourself to experience it. How to get it?
