Sharing with you some items that I bought from the US trip and in case you are wondering "How is shopping in US?" I would say: IT'S SO AWESOME!

Seriously! Things are so much cheaper there than in Singapore. Not just that, all the items are unique, and there are many varieties for you chose. Some brands are not even available in Singapore and they are beautiful.  I wanted to make this post a little bit more special so I create a fashion collage called "Crystal Look book". These are what I bought from the trips and how I'm going to wear them.

First outfit from Forever21, black sleeveless dress with back silver zip and transparent V-cut at the waist on both sides. It creates an illusion of a small waist and increases your body curve. I wear this to work, and it makes me feel very confident every time I wear it. Small red belt and red watch will be a highlight of your entire look. Oh and don't forget a sexy high heels together. Dress is at USD$24. 

Second dress from F21 as well, a black body con dress with three water drops neckline. It looks so stylish and sexy and yet affordable at USD$22.

This is definitely Crystal's style, shiny & sexy. I love how the gold sequins decorated on the soft material. It gives a rough and sensual feel at the same time. If you are planning on a Friday night date, this dress is a perfect choice. Don't forget a small clutch, a sexy pair of pumps and red or pink lipstick with you. I bought this celebrity-inspired dress at only USD$24. Score!

The last dress I bought from F21 is this orange-black one side shoulder body con dress. The design is not new, but the colors are very well matched. It also focuses on your body curve. I'm going to pair this dress with a pair of orange coloured heels, bracelets, and sunglasses like in the photo. It costed me USD$22 only to get this piece home.

There are many more things in F21, which I believe if I spent another hour or two there, I could have bought one luggage of their clothes back. Most of the dresses sold in Singapore are around S$59- S$69 or even more. Besides, they are pretty out-dated so even you pay three times of the price, you'll probably get the last season items only. 

Left F21, we went to few other shopping stores. One of them is GUESS. Initially, I wanted to buy a pair of jeans only but in the end, I bought more than that *girls' problem*. Things in the store are pretty cheap, ranging from USD$100- USD$200. You might say "That's my spending money in a week". But look, if you compare to the same item in Singapore, you'll probably have to pay three times higher". So if you can afford, I still it's cheaper to buy them in the US than in Singapore. 

This is one of favourite dresses from GUESS. It's so flattering and well-fitting. The dress is USD$98 and jacket is USD$138. I also managed to find the shoes in black and white stripes. They are from Charles & Keith and my watch is from Swarovski. 

This is my mix and match set called Glam Chic. Sequin cotton top from Armani Exchange for USD$39 only. The brown leather jacket is even cheaper, only USD$29 from Forever21. I quickly grabbed it the moment I saw it. It's super comfortable and it fits me so well too. This probably is my best-buy item so far. Brown ankle length boots are from H&M, I bought them in Singapore for S$59. The black boots are from Aldo.

Another sophisticated and stylish set that I like. The fruit printed white top from Dolce &Gabbana for USD$249. Skinny Jean from Guess at USD$128 and Gucci belt bought in Singapore at S$560. I'm totally in love with this look. Very comfortable and modern, it's suitable for work a casual day out.

Lastly, this is one of my most favourite items. Bebe dress! I've been in love with Bebe clothes from the first sight. All the dresses are so elegant, sexy and trendy. Bebe dresses in Singapore are usually sold at S$300 and above but, believe it or not, you can find some dresses at less than USD$100 and they are nice in US too.

And these are the two dresses I got while I went shopping in Rodeo drive. Take a look!

First! It's a sparkly night. I can't express how much love I have for this shiny dress. Super comfortable and fitting. It really compliments my body curve well. The shiny stripe on the dress is such a brilliant idea. It makes the dress totally not boring at all. 

Second dress: Bebe Brennan Deep V Lace Dress. It's a celebrity style with deep V shape neckline, bare back. I'm so obsessed with this dress. The lace & satin go well together make the dress look so super hot and feminine. Bought it for USD$159, super happy because it's cheap, and it's not even sold in Singapore. Know what?

Actress Carmen Electra wore it too :D

The last shop I went is of course Victoria's Secret. There is no shopping haul completed without a visit Victoria's Secret store. I came when they had 50% OFF in the store. Right timing!
I bought a couple of bras (1 for 1), panties. Super satisfied!

Total bill. Victoria's Secret lingeries are by far the best. I love their bras, they are so comfortable and so soft. I feel like kissing it every time I wear it. 

Overall, it was such a great trip, great shopping experience. Everyone is so polite, friendly and serves you so well as if you were a Queen even though you are not buying anything from them. I love it! I'm going to end this entry here because I'm running out of time. Need to have rapid packing and head down to the airport. 
Before ending this, let me wish you guys a very happy, healthy New Year.
