Swinging In Style – Luxe Swinger

If you haven’t read my post on Swinging In Style that I wrote previously, click here.
As most of you would know, I was one of the 12 lucky bloggers to be able to participate in the Swinging In Style Blogger Fashion Show, organized by Luxe Swinger, which happened on the 8th of June at the Luxe Swinger store in Publika.

It was such a pleasant experience overall, from meeting new and awesome people, to popping my catwalking cherry, not forgetting dressing up and getting tons of pictures taken. Would definitely do this again in a heartbeat!

I’ll share some of the pictures with you, courtesy of Peoplegraphy, the official photography partner of the event.





Getting my hair and make-up done by Avigne from Backstage Academy.

Absolutely loved what she’d done for me, and she would constantly check on my hair and make-up to make sure everything is in place. LOVE HER!



Got there pretty early, so this is me and the girls chatting up while waiting for the others to get ready.


The damage done backstage.


Hanli and I also made great use of the photographer while waiting, absolutely love these pictures!

After a brief rehearsal and multiple toilet trips (blame the nerves), the crowd started to arrive slowly, and the fashion show began.


Light snacks from O’Briens for everyone.


Hari, our emcee of the day.


Founder of Luxe Swinger, Diana Koon, giving a quick speech before the show.


And there I am!

Not sure if you can tell, but my heart was beating like mad here, haven’t had to stand in front of a massive crowd for quite a while.

I was wearing a black bandage evening gown by Herve Leger, I fell in love once I laid eyes on it in the fitting room, the fit was absolutely amazing it’s impossible.

Available for purchase at Luxe Swinger, Publika.



And if you were wondering “Hmmm is the dress hard to walk in?”

Well, the dress is pretty tight around the thighs area, so you’re not allowed to take huge steps, but it has a high slit at the back if you can spot me in the picture above. Then again, you’re suppose to walk elegantly in this typa gown, so you won’t be needing the space to take huge steps.


And, the best part that made my day was when they announced my name as the winner of “The Most Interesting Blog Post” (Actually I’m not quite sure about the title, because my mind pretty much went blank after they called my name).


Me nervously giving my short speech as one of the winners.

I don’t even remember what I’ve said, really, this award totally took me by surprise and I wasn’t prepared at all.

And I’ve probably received the best prize ever, which is the entire outfit that I was wearing for the fashion show,
YES! THE HERVE LEGER EVENING GOWN THAT I WAS SUPPOSE TO RETURN TO LUXE SWINGER ORIGINALLY!

But now, it is sitting happily and gorgeously in my closet <3

My super girls AJ and Newnew, who brought their guys along to cheer for me. And also my ‘main man’, you know who you are *wink wink*.

Words can’t express how grateful I am to have you guys in my life.

And I just realized we didn’t get to take a group picture all together :(

Thanks everyone for making time to come all the way there to support me and cheer for my lousy catwalk, I haven’t receive all the pictures yet, so if I took a picture with you, please do send it to me, I would love to keep it!

And last but not least, a group picture of all the bloggers and the mastermind behind Luxe Swinger, Diana Koon, to end the good post.
