{CRYSTAL'S CLOSET}: THE RED ROSE



Another day, another way of wearing floral dress. If you have followed my blog long enough, you probably know that I'm a true flower lover and a hopeless romantic, especially when it comes to red roses. I would be lying if I said I did not like to receive a rose for my birthday, Valentine's Day, or better yet, for no reason. Who could resist a guy who buys roses for his girlfriend every now and then? I know I couldn't. Even if I didn't love the guy at first, I could probably fall in love with him if he did that to me once every month. Ok, fine! Maybe, once every few months. 

I used to buy roses from the wet market to decorate my house in the morning. That's the time when the roses look freshest and most beautiful. I love how it instantly brightened my whole living room, and of course my mood. The sweet smell lingered in the air, around the house, it gave me a sense of love and being loved. 

Sadly, I don't buy roses as often as I used to because I hardly stay at home, but my love for the beautiful red roses has never changed. As you can tell, even though I don't have the real roses in my hands, I must make sure to have them printed on my dress.

{CRYSTAL'S CLOSET}: DAYDREAMER




On the busiest day of the week, meetings after meetings, having a quiet moment by myself on the overhead bridge was such a pleasant and sweet surprise. While taking the air from one end of the bridge to the other, I suddenly felt like escaping this reality, running into a wonderland where I would be surrounded by breathtaking scenery, beautiful blooms, stunning fountains, and the sound of nature. Everyone looked happy there. There was no room for stress, worry and sadness in this place. Only love, laughter and care. 

A sudden car horn woke me up and forced me out of my dream. I looked at the crowded road under the bridge where I was standing, all types of vehicle came and went. Everyone was rushing to somewhere and busy doing something. A few thoughts crossed my mind: Where are they going? Where are they from? What is the story behind them? How is their life? Are they happy?
And then, I asked myself: “How am I different from them the moment I walk down this bridge and merge into this life flow?”, “When was the last time I stopped and smelled the roses?”. 

The honest answer scared me.

Like most people, I'm busy chasing my dreams, goals, and targets every single day, one after another. It will never end. I’m not different from the rest, but I’m lucky enough to have five minutes standing on that bridge, to soak in the sunshine, to enjoy the wind and to appreciate what I have in life. 

I guess; five minutes every day is all I need.

{CRYSTAL'S CLOSET}: NEON IS THE NEW BLACK



Neon is such a strong and addictive color. This eye-catching hue is so powerful that it makes somebody who used to be anti-vibrant colors for many years become a crazy fan in such a short period of time. It was almost immediate when I tried on this striking pair of shoes, I realized neon color was not as scary as I thought. The intensity of brightness doesn't stop me from having fun, it makes me feel more energetic and happy instead. 

While some people think of neon color as an attention seeker, I would prefer to look at it as a motivational resource. It challenges you to be different, to stand out from the crowd and to feel comfortable in your own skin. It helps you to overcome your fear when all eyes are on you in public. It teaches you to relax, enjoy and be open to the new experiences. 

Besides, it brightens your day up when everything is gloomy. What's not to love neon?

{EDITORIAL}: KEEP IT COOL



First of all, Doug and I would like to thank you so much for the positive feedback and comments on our very first editorial shot: Black Night. It means the world to me knowing that you liked the photos we created, and it drives me crazy everyday to think of the new ideas to entertain you. Some people asked me what was our purpose in creating such photos, did we get paid for doing that, etc..... Honestly, we didn't know where we were heading to, or what's there for us, we just thought of creating more and more beautiful photos. It's the passion (besides your love and support) that motivates us and keeps us going. It helps me see the possibilities in everything, even from the smallest and simplest perspective. Just like the idea in this second editorial photo shoot, who thought a casual boyfriend shirt with a simple white denim jeans could look so glamorous and sexy together? 

I initially planned to shoot this outfit for the normal Crystal's Closet outfit post, but the photos turned out to be so unexpectedly beautiful that I couldn't help but list them under the Editorial category. Thanks to my partner-in-crime Doug Tindall for making me so elegant even when I was in my coolest outfit.

SKY BLUE



It's a little bit depresessing to think about how long did it take me to shoot this sky blue chiffon dress. A year, to be exact. Your first time seeing this dress on my blog is my second time wearing it. I must say, I need to find a perfect reason to wear it. Because this dress is so unique, fragile and beautiful to my opinion, it needs a special introduction, no less. That special introduction came about when I suddenly wanted to feel (and look) more feminine, sweet and romantic than usual. The same feeling you have when you are about to walk down the aisle with someone special, or when you are having a dulcet dream that puts a smile on your face. I didn't have to put much effort to show the whole world how I felt, this dress helped me to speak on it own.  

Style is a reflection of our attitude and our personality. As much as I would like to remain myself as Ms. Mysterious, I think my clothes betray me most of the time.
