StyleScan's It Girl : Crystal Phuong

This week, our It Girl is Crystal Phuong, a fashionista & blogger from Singapore!
We did a small interview with this trend setter, so that you can learn a little bit more about her!
Find her on StyleScan @CrystalPhuong & visit her blog here.

When did you start blogging?
I started blogging in 2006. How time flies! It has been 7 years by now. Back then, I blogged randomly about everything happened to me when I was living in Malaysia. It was more like my e-diary. Only until year 2011, I started blogging about Fashion and getting more and more passionate about it. I never thought of blogging would be my full time job before. Apparently, it is now.

What motivates you to dress up everyday?
Other than a Fashion Blogger, I'm also a professional Latin/ Ballroom dancer who is always up for performances, shows and competitions. Nature of my job requires me to always look my best whenever I'm on the dance floor or on the stage. Dressing up nicely everyday has become my habit and character for that reason. Also, I need to meet up many clients in a day, I do not want to make them feel disappointed in seeing the huge difference between an offline and online Crystal. But most importantly, dressing up everyday will make a person look good and feel good. I believe, when a woman feels good about herself, she can conquer the world. 

What are your favorite beauty items?
My favorite beauty items would be: Biore sunscreen, Lancome Hypnose mascara, Calvin Klein Euphoria perfume, Dior lipstick, Urban Decay eyeshadow palette & Maybelline eyeliner.  

Any other passions aside from fashion?
Besides fashion, I also have huge passion in dancing and acting. I've been dancing for 11 years and I'm still dancing. It helps me to maintain a good body shape and healthy lifestyle. Occasionally, I also act in some local TV shows, dramas in Singapore. 

What do you love the most about living in Singapore?
There are too many things I love about living in Singapore. The country is so green and clean, people are very nice, friendly and kind. There are huge varieties of foods (from Mexican, Italian, Spanish, to Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Indian etc...) and they are all so delicious. Night life in Singapore is great with many bars, clubs, restaurants around. Not to mention, Singapore city skyline is simply breathtaking.

Our team hit the city streets in Midtown yesterday to promote StyleScan.  While visiting stores such as H&M, Forever21, and Macy's we came across this stylish Mother Daughter Duo.  Both women were wearing the popular peplum trend, bold statement necklaces, and chic bobs.

StyleScan's It Girls : Darling Two

Meet Courtney & Stephanie, from the Darling Two blog.

What motivated you both to start the Darling Two?

Since we first became friends as freshman in high school, we always inspired each other and helped one another find our own personal style. We both had followed various fashion blogs for years, and had always talked about starting one. But what finally motivated us to start our blog was the distance between us when we both moved away. We created the Darling Two to be our "home away from home" where we could share our closets and continue to inspire each other every day.

How would you describe your styles?

We describe Courtney's style as "Tomboy Chic". She buys most of her clothes two sizes too big, and would live in her overalls everyday if she could. Stephanie's personal style is an eclectic mix of modern sophistication with a bohemian twist. She loves good tailoring and a crisp blazer, but adds in flowy dresses and loads of accessories.  

What do you love the most about blogging?

We love how it keeps us connected, and we constantly have the ability to shop each others closets and have daily inspiration. We also love the feedback we get from our readers when we have given them inspiration or new styling ideas. We love investing our time in the blog, and it has definitely become a favorite part in our daily routine. 

Which season is your favorite fashion-wise?

Definitely Fall. It's the perfect time for layering, so we get to combine our favorite pieces from both summer and winter. Courtney immediately goes for a loose-knit sweater, and Stephanie gravitates towards a structured blazer. 

Where can we find you in your free time?

In our free time, Courtney can be found roaming the streets of New York searching for the next great coffee shop or quaint vintage store. Stephanie can be found out exploring, hiking, and shopping in Colorado Springs, or at home snuggling with her husband and two-year-old son. 

Find them both on the StyleScan app @DarlingTwo to see more of their style!
