Crystal Phuong x Revolve Clothing: White on white outfit

Remember the Her world Plus Social Media Awards that I blogged about last month here, here and here? Voting period was over and the result was out. Believe it or not, I WON. Thank you so much for your votes and your kind support from the bottom of my heart. Thank you Forever21 for choosing me as your favorite choice. Six years ago, I was still dreaming of one day I could afford to buy some beautiful dresses from your store. Today, I achieved that dream in a way that I've never expected. 

Winning an award is pretty surreal whether it's big or small. It tells me that I'm doing something right and motivates me to be a better version of myself. You might not know this, but I did feel like giving up blogging many times. I felt like I was hitting against the wall and I was wasting my time. The blog wasn't moving to where I wanted it to be. It was frustrating. But when everything feels like the uphill struggle, thinking of the view from the top does help to push me forward. The panoramic view from the top is the biggest reward for those who can endure the climb. 

I wasn't climbing in this wide-leg pants, bare-back top and heels obviously. While I was shooting this outfit for Revolve Clothing two weeks ago, the view from where I was standing made me appreciate what I have in life and reminded me why I should work hard and never give up. I just wanted to share this positive vibe with you. I hope your dream will come true very soon.

GOING GREEN


Crystal Phuong- Going green with printed blazer, neon Sac de jour bag, and Dolce Gabbana sneakers

It's been a long time since I left my blog nonupdated for more than 6 days. I wasn't going anywhere with limited connectivity, I just wanted to reward myself with a short break, not having to worry about deadlines, photoshoots, and new articles. If you take a look at my blog archive in 2015, I wrote 112 blog entries last year. That equals 112 weekends burned for outfit photoshoots and 112 nights that I had to sacrifice 2 to 3 hours of sleep for writing. The truth is having a full-time job while running an active fashion blog is extremely hard. I work during the days and blog mostly at nights or weekends. While I was enjoying every bit of it and I wouldn't mind sleeping less every night to fulfill my dream, I realized there were other things that I accidentally neglected while living in this digital world. My family, my Mr. Bear, and myself. 

Last 6 nights, I spent some quality time with Mr. Bear eating dinner at home, watching our favorite TV shows and going to bed early. I didn't feel tired in the morning because I had enough sleep, I woke up early in the weekend and spent more time with Mr. Bear instead of sleeping until noon and rushing out for a photo shoot. It was like a digital-detox time and it felt wonderful.  

Now that I'm back to the blogging business, it urges me to find a balance to keep my career, my passion, my health, and my love going. I wanted to start this year with a fresh and "green" page. This resonates with one of my New Year's resolutions, which will soon be revealed in the upcoming blog post, "Living life organically, one green outfit at a time".

RAYE THE LABEL


Crystal Phuong- Fashion Blogger- Raye the label shoes & snake skin blouse

To continue my story about discovering new brands via Revolve Clothing in this blog post, I'd like to introduce to you my recent find and latest obsession: Raye the Label. I've actually been eyeing on their shoes for a while and finally they landed in my closet. All thanks to Revolve Clothing!

I don't have problems in getting new shoes, but when I do, it's usually a "Choose this or that" situation. That's what I encountered whenever I'm on Revolve's website. It took me hours to decide which shoes I wanted to get from hundreds of options available. In the end, beige is the new black. I chose these gorgeous tan-colored suede heels. The rest is history.

When it comes to styling beige, tan, or neutral pieces, I tend to pair them with some bright colors to enlighten the whole outfit (Example here). This time, I changed my game plan and went for an (almost) all beige look. Except for my ultra-flare white skirt, I was decked head to toe in the earthy color tones: brown snakeskin shirt, olive colored sunglasses, beige leather bag, and tan suede heels.

By the way, did you see the brown lips? It was my FIRST TIME trying out this Fall color lipstick. I like it, but I'm not sure if it looks good on me. What do you think? Yay or Nay?

ITS NBD GIRL


Crystal Phuong- Revolve Clothing- NBD Black Romper

Since October last year, I had a chance to work with one of my favorite online shopping websites. It's Revolve Clothing. If you can still remember this amazing cutout dress that I wore at Vietnam Fashion Week, it was from them. Revolve always has many beautiful dresses that you can't find anywhere else. Trust me, I'd been shopping on their website long before they approached me. I did my research. 

Working with Revolve Clothing, I had an opportunity to learn about different brands on their website. NBD is one of them. I actually picked out quite a numbers of tops and dresses and most of them happened to be from NBD. I was first attracted to the feminine silhouettes, gorgeous prints, and amazing details on all of their designs. Then, I went on learning more about this label. The story that I found out about this brand inspires me so much. Here it goes! 

"She walks into a room and everyone notices. She exudes confidence and her energy is contagious. She never leaves home without her best accessory- her smile. Always clad in her favorite dress. You'll find this beauty front, center, and everywhere- the newest restaurant, an art gallery opening, the must-go-to club, and date nights with her boyfriend or best friends. She is the first to give a toast and the last to say goodnight. She lives her life to the fullest, one dress at a time"

I found her when I put on this dress. I'm pretty sure if you wear any of the NBD dresses and look at the mirror, you'll see her too.

KEEPING IT CASUAL


Crystal Phuong- Herworldplus Social Media Awards- Casual outfit

Sometimes, I find it more difficult to dress up for the weekends than the weekdays. How to look completely relaxed, comfortable and yet chic is a tough job. Whenever I need some inspirations for a casual outfit, my go to place will always be Forever21. Whether they sponsor for the Herworldplus Social Media Awards that I'm nominated for or not, it's the truth. They have the latest trends, gorgeous items, and super chic accessories that save me a lot of time thinking about how to style each piece. 

Forever21 denim skirts or shorts, crop tops, cute graphic tees are my favorite weekend pieces, but I also love their stylish range of outerwears and sweaters this season. Especially when it comes to traveling, nothing makes an airport attire chicer than a pair of white sneakers paired with denim jeans and a light trench coat. I have already mapped out what I wanted to wear for my flight coming up in a few weeks, as you can see. I thought I should give you another version of the white sneakers with a denim skirt and sweatshirt for a casual weekend. It was a chilly and rainy morning when I had these photos taken. It made my outfit become so weather-appropriate. Even if the temperature doesn't drop below 25 degrees Celcius in Singapore, it's still ok to wear this sweatshirt, thanks to its light material. 

Besides, who couldn't say no to those adorable "Eyes" trying to tell me to be cool and by the way, that's what the weekend is all about, isn't it? 

Please do vote for me at Herworldplus Social Media Awards if you haven't done so. 
Thank you so much for reading! Hope you'll have a wonderful weekend!
