Invitation to the Crocs Fashion Show at Vivo City by OMY.SG

Darren Sim April 17, 2012 Style & Fashion No Comments

I was privileged to be invited to the “New Crocs New You Fashion Show” at Vivo City last weekend by the great folks of OMY.SG; braving the impending exams and a partially recovered physique (moi was quick sick the day earlier ๏̯͡๏).

You will find the style of this post slightly different from my regular writing, because this post is also going into the OMY Blog Club’s site too! ….. Yes, I’m a new kid on the block with healthy blog traffic….

Went down to Jeric Salon to get my hair done up before going down to Vivo City. Of course right… How can the official blogger of a Salon have cui hair right.. *grins*

Ok.. I’m still learning more about hair day by day and hopefully one day I will know how to cut… Just for the fun of it. ^_^

Hahaha… Sitting like a buddha or high monk! Amen!

This is Paul, one of the hair stylists at Jeric Salon… His photo on the salon website is very very old.. Haha.. I told him if he updated his photo, he’d have many young female customers.. haha… Don’t you agree?

Tada! Changing hair color back to Ash-Green. The cool thing about it is that it will fade to blue a week later.. So technically I will have a new hair color in one week’s time..

Say Hi! to Kai, my buddy, hairstylist, and Director of Jeric Salon (Ion Orchard). I highly recommend him for your hair cuts, not just because he’s my friend, but he really does a good job. The fact that his appointments are always packed says something.

OMG.. I reached Vivo 15 minutes late and see… So many customers at the Crocs outlet… Was happy to meet a few bloggers and new friends (Silver Ang, Calvin Timo, Darren Ang, Dionna Zhao & more) that day.

Yes, these are Crocs shoes… Didn’t expect right?

This time round, they invited professional photographers to the event too… I was telling Calvin, let’s just go make friends with him and ask him share his photos with us.. hahaa…

Wahhhh…. SO many people…

This is MINT, the host for the event, with Kovit Ang, a stylist that Crocs hired for the event..

The new series of crocs shoes is really fashionable, unlike the “slipper/sandal versions” which we’re used to seeing.

Something that you ladies can wear for a date on a warm Saturday afternoon and still look sweet.

Or… on dress-down fridays to work, before heading to that party after that… Crocs now comes with a Heels series too…

Or this… Something more formal… A weekend getaway to the Yatch Club to catch up with friends….

The beach outfit with the new series of Crocs for ladies.

Or something more Chic for the poolside party…

Office shoes from Crocs that you can wear even in the more formal settings.

Girls… I’m quite sure you’d agree that he is Undisputedly the cutest guy model for this show… Right… (I am straight btw! -.-)

Tada! One last showcase the latest series of shoes from Crocs. Do visit http://www.crocs.com.sg/ to check out more… I was surprised to find so many designs especially for the female crowd… Even got Leopard prints! Wootx!

All invited bloggers were given a vouchers from Crocs where we can choose any Crocs shoes we want within $150. Unfortunately can’t get it on the same day because the store was very crowded.

So I decided to head down to the Tampines outlet which is the nearest from my place. I heard from Calvin that Plaza Singapura (there’s a Jeric Salon there too! haha.. ) is actually their flagship store. See what I saw…

Oh my… So cute… No idea what they’re called… So I shall just name them “Crocsformers”! hahaa…

Wondering where to get those cute little things to attach to your Crocs, they have in in stall now under the Jibbit brand-name.

For the guys who don’t mind walking around with these cutelets on your crocs.

For the ladies… This is the ultimate weapon to make your crocs look super cute, earning the envy of all your friend!

The new series of Crocs street wear. I picked the green one and it’s really awesome! Because it’s made of rubber instead of cloth, that makes it almost stain proof! I dripped some sauce on the white part the other day by accident, and all it took was a wipe using a wet-tissue and the stain dissapeared!

This is the leather series. I think it’s quite nice to wear, with a pair of shorts and polo-tee to town on a Sunday with Le-Girlfriend for her shopping trip. ^_^ (ya! I’m imagining ok! still single… anyone want?)

Hahahaha… Spotted this pair that is certainly a “dad’s favorite”.

If you prefer the traditional cloth street shoes, they have it too.. One thing I like about the Crocs version is that it’s side is quite solid, so it won’t chip off so easily compared to the usual one..

You know.. Like when you squat down and have to bend the front part, after sometime sure cui! You know what I talking about lah! Don’t know then… Tweet me and ask me!

Don’t know you size, this will help you. Note that Crocs has a special size system similar to the US shoe sizes, but not 100%. Might want to take note ya. Especially when buying for friends.

Colgate (the stylist) recommended the series on the top (purple/white/pink) for clubbing because it’s cute and comfortable. I kind of agree with him on that. Imagine clubbing with heels? Quite frankly I don’t understand why girls wear heels to club, except using it as a weapon against perverted guys who try to take advantage behind their backs.

No idea why the doctor/nurse photo there.. But Crocs is amazingly popular amongst dentist and doctors. I’ve a few dentist friends who always slip into their pair of crocs the moment the change into their gown to start work.

This is my new crocs street-style shoe. After posting it on Twitter and Instagram, I’ve gotten quite a number of people asking me where to get and how much. It’s going at about $115 and comes in three colors.

Just in case you didn’t already know… I love my readers a lot and always try to get something for all of you! This is a giveaway I did on Sunday night to a lucky winner on my twitter account.

Don’t worry if you missed it, Crocs has something else for all. They’ve having this make over contest and if you win, the prizes are quite attractive. And if you don’t want to travel all the way to the store, you can use the Crocs Mix and Match Mobile app (available on iPhone and Android) to view the wide array of options and even try them on virtually.
