NYFW DAY 4: A LITTLE SKIN GOES A LONG WAY



The weather in New York during September can be unpredictable sometimes. One day you saw me decked in a jumpsuit over a turtleneck sweater. The next day, I was in a crop top and a midi skirt. It's confusing, I know, but it's interesting.  It gave me many chances to try out different styles, especially during fashion week. 

Unless I am at the beach, you won't see me walking on the street in a deep V-neck dress or a crop top that shows my entire waist. The last time I wore a crop top to work was 3 years ago (God! I looked so young here) and I wore a blazer on top, so it was a safe business. 

Anyway, cut a long story short, I find myself uncomfortable to show too much skin in public. Not that I don't love my body, but I don't see the joy in showing my belly fat to the world, especially when I sit down. Insecurity, that's what you call it. But when I saw this adorable ribbon crop top on Zalora, I thought it would be perfect to wear it with my pink ombre midi skirt. I couldn't help thinking about breaking the rule. Besides, the blue hue on the skirt matches my hair color completely. It made me excited. 

Despite many good reasons why I should wear this outfit, my mind kept saying "No you shouldn't wear it. Your waist is exposed. It shows too much skin". I put the clothes on then I took them off. In the end, I asked myself "What if I could just forget about my imperfection, care less about what people think of me, and enjoy dressing up in my favorite outfit for once?".  I took the risk and the result is what you are seeing here. Good or bad, it doesn't matter as long as it makes me happy. 

Do you feel comfortable in your own skin?

NYFW DAY 3: A LACE AFFAIR


Crystal Phuong- New York Fashion Week 2016 Day 3- Best Streetstyle

I have to admit; I'm a sucker for lace, silk, chiffon, and anything that can bring feminity to the next level. This year at New York Fashion Week, I played with many different styles, textures, and silhouettes. You saw a full sequin look here on day 1 and the overlay-ruffled jumpsuit on day 2, here comes day 3. Two outfits in one day. The common thread? It's all about lace.

It was hot during the day, so I decided to wear a lace bell sleeve top with a black cop-top underneath, leaving just enough to the imagination. A flared wide-leg pants added some flavors to spice up the whole look (They are one of my favorite pants by the way). Totally fashion-week appropriate.

At night, I changed to a stunning black-white striped lace dress. As this dress showed too much skin, I didn't feel comfortable walking in New York at late night in such a revealing outfit so I threw a long vest on top. Problem solved. We went to attend a couple of fashion shows at Style Fashion Week and went to an after-party after that.   

The truth is I seldom wear all black or black-and-white outfits to attend fashion week, especially at night. But if I had to, then I'll make sure my shoes and accessories speak louder than my outfits. Always!

NYFW DAY 2- SUNSHINE IN NEW YORK



I hardly wear a yellow outfit, let alone a striking yellow jumpsuit. But when I saw this bandeau ruffled jumpsuit on ASOS a few months ago, my instinct told me that it would be a perfect outfit for fashion week. And it was, indeed. 

I received countless compliments when I was making my way to the show. Not only the compliments on my outfit, but also on my hair color and accessories. Blue is the new black, maybe?

It was day 2 of New York Fashion Week. Our day started at 9 am, and we were moving nonstop, from Soho to Times Square, from Skylight Moynihan to Central Park. The fashion show, the after party, the meeting, and the presentation. One after another from the day I arrived in the city to the day I left. 

Having very little time in between each event, we had to make use of whatever chance we got. Jan and I shot this outfit at two different times of the day. One is in the morning in Soho and the other in the afternoon at Times Square. It was bright in the morning, but the sky became gloomier in the afternoon. We shot so fast as we were afraid of the darkness catching up on us. But the dark sky with the brown bricked buildings in Manhattan turned out to be the perfect backdrop for this va-va-voom outfit. I felt like a super-woman with my cape who has the power to bring a little sunshine to this never-sleeping city.

NYFW DAY 1: RAINBOW ON REPEAT


CrystalPhuong- New York Fashion Week 2017 Streetstyle- Rainbow Jumpsuit

It's that time of the year when September came, everyone in the fashion industry started planning for their New York Fashion Week trip. I was not an exception. I planned a month in advance, but when it got closer to the date, I always had a second thought. Should I stay or should I go? Although this was my third time going to New York Fashion Week, I still got butterflies in my stomach for many unnecessary reasons. 

Like the last two times, I decided to book my flight ticket at the last minute. I arrived in the Big Apple on the first day of fashion week. The city was full of energy as usual. It washed away my sleepiness and tiredness as soon as I stepped into this concrete jungle. This time, instead of spending our money on the hotel for the entire week, my friend Heidi from TheAmbitionista got us a luxurious apartment at West 57th looking over the Central Park. The view from the apartment was insanely beautiful! Here is the proof.

As soon as I got situated, I quickly changed and headed out for the first show of the day "Desigual Spring Summer 2017". Knowing that I had only an hour to get ready, I wouldn't have time to think about "What to wear." That's why I decided to restyle this rainbow jumpsuit, which I wore it once at Vietnam Fashion Week earlier this year. Besides, if I had to hide my jetlag face, a bright sequin head-to-toe outfit seemed like a good idea. 

Did I look like I'd just flown thousands of miles across the globe? You tell me.
