{CRYSTAL'S CLOSET}: THE TULLE PRINCESS

{CRYSTAL'S CLOSET}: THE TULLE PRINCESS




When I was a little girl, my mom always loved dressing me up with many colorful tulle skirts and tiara. She made me feel like I was a real princess all the time. Since then, tulle skirts have become not only typical type of cloths to me but also a sweet memory reminds me so much of my childhood. Sad to say, I haven't been able to wear this whimsical ballerinas style for years. Only after watching Sex and the City, seeing Carrie Bradshaw in a tulle skirt, I was struck by the feeling how much I missed wearing this adorable skirt. 

Last week, I decided to bring my childhood moment come to life and to feel like being a princess once again.



You would be surprised to know that this tulle tube dress I was wearing here is actually a midi-skirt. I didn't like how the midi-skirt looked on me so I decided to be creative by wearing it as tube dress and layering with a leather jacket on top. Forget about the misconception that tulle skirts are only for juvenile, this total grown-up outfit proved us that tulle skirts can be worn by many young, independent and strong women. 



This look is so appropriate for a special event, night out but if you want to wear for a casual day out, pair the tulle skirt with sweater, cardigan or even some cool graphic T-shirts etc...





Since tulle skirt is such a soft, romantic and sweet staple,  I wanted to contrast the femininity of the skirt with tougher pieces like #gladiator sandals, leather jacket and statement necklace.



Statement necklace does not only give the outfit the entire finished touch but also balances out the sweetness of the tulle dress-skirt. 














What do you think about this cute girly skirt? Think you've got your own style? Share with me in the comment section below. Now, it's time to shop:

Crystal's Closet: Oxblood leather skirt & draped chain necklace.


Hi everyone

I had so much fun shooting the outfit of the day today. It was also lucky that we had a meeting with client at the most beautiful place in Singapore- the bay area that is. And so, once finished the meeting, my mind immediately told me: "Take some outfit photos, please" while my stomach kept yelling "It's almost 2pm. Where is my lunch?". My mind was stronger so it won. :D

It took us less than 20 minutes to get all these beautiful shots done. Photos credit to my personal photographer: Faith. :D

Today outfit featured the oxblood leather skirt with matching statement draped chain necklace. 


Go to work in style! 









Everytime I wear circle skirt, I always feel like dancing for no reason. Thinking about when we turn around, the skirt moves along beautifully. And I asked Faith if she could help me to capture the turning shot. After approximately 10- 15 failed attempts, I got these two are my favorites.


 Almost perfect! IF only the bag was in the photo too :D

::Outfit::
Black blouse: ZARA (Similar here or here)
Oxblood circle skirt: H&M (Similar here or here)

 And the perfect one after all. This is also my most favorite photo since I started taking outfit photo of myself a year ago til now, lolz. 

Hope you like this outfit pairing and especially the photos. Will share with you more in the next entry.
Thank you very much for reading and your support.

Crystal's Closet: Stripe it up!

Crystal's Closet: Stripe it up!


Hey everyone!

Time flies so fast, another week is almost coming to an end. I still have so many things need to accomplished. People said that "Stressed" is "Desserts" spelling backward. Unfortunately, this Dessert SUCKS and I hate it. But no matter what, I will still wrap this month up in a positive note. *thumb up*.  Stress should be treated as Motivation, NOT a Problem

Today, my outfit is very autumn-winter oriented with leather, suede in burgundy, brown, oxblood colors. On top, I was wearing more toward spring-summer trend: chiffon ruffled neck blouse. It might sound weird in your own imagination about my spring top, winter bottom kinda outfit. But turned out, they blended in well together. 

Singapore weather is sunny and hot all year round but it doesn't mean you can't wear leather skirt and suede pumps once a while. I wore my leather skirt today and I felt it was so cool down there because it's circle skirt, the wind was being very tricky. ;)

Here are some of the shoots of outfit of the day we took. Thank to my personal photographer, Faith! xoxo



 I love how comfortable the outfit made me feel and yet still very chic. It didn't make you look slovenly.




 What I love most about this type of skirt is that it can lie about your actual waist size especially after a heavy meal. Also, circle skirt is so versatile that it can be worn and look good on many different types of body shapes.

 Suede pumps is always classic and timeless. 




::Outfit::
Stripped blouse: G2000 
Leather skirt: H&M (similar here or here)
Bag: Oasap 
Pumps: Crystal's Closet (similar here or here and here)
Accessories: Swarovski watch- ASOS rings

I hope you like this fun pairing and find it useful. Fashion nowadays is so opened and limited-less.  I still remember 10 years ago, we could only see leather, suede, wool, velvet materials in winter. Now? You see them almost everywhere and at anytime when people feel like wearing them regardless the seasons. So don't restrict yourself from wearing something you love. The best outfit is the one that makes you feel most confident in it

Good luck with your new outfit pairing attempt and don't forget to share with me some photos, leave me some comments below. 
Til then, stay pretty and happy!
Love,
Crystal

Crystal's Closet: Fun layering!

Crystal's Closet: Fun layering!


 Hi everyone!

Finally, it's Friday! I'm so looking forward to this weekend as I will be spending my 3 days in the beautiful Shangri La- beachfront resort hotel in Sentosa. The hotel is magnificent with their own private beach, promising a great scenery for my photo taking. I can't wait and I promise to take lot of photos to share with you guys. :D

Talk about my today outfit, I was trying to be creative in layering and mixing these 2 pieces:

Burgundy lace dress with oxblood leather skirt. 

And this is what I got: 






As the lace dress is pretty short, I decided to wear the oxblood leather skirt underneath to give the outfit more length and volume. I had to attend few meetings today, so I had to wear at least semi-formal and that's where the black blazer came in. 

Vintage inspired earrings happened to be in matching color with the dress


 Beaded bangle in deep red- burgundy for lil extra fanciness. 

This is perfect COMBO outfit. You can wear it to work (with the blazer on) or even to a party (with a blazer off) and you are ready to rock and roll. 

Love the ribbon zipper. 

And now, I'm a party girl. 

Stop looking at my back, I knew it ;). *just kidding*

It's so fun to mixing and layering your outfit. You'll be surprised to know that certain outfit can be worn in many different ways. So be creative with your closet! What is your favorite outfit pairing/ layering? Share with me at the comment section below. 

Thank you for reading. I might not be blogging on Friday or Saturday but I'll surely update my outfit post on Instagram or Lookbook.nu, so please follow me there if you haven't done so. 

Talk to you again soon. 
Love,
Crystal
