"A woman with good shoes is never ugly." - Coco Chanel

Blue is my favorite color. These foamy and minty shades together is pure magic. THREE FLOOR just know how to turn simple fabric into pure magic. I know I just not gonna leave the store without this dress the moment I see it on the rack.
I am so honored to be named after these lucite babies. I will be wearing them till the day I die and went to shoe heaven :)

WHITE NIGHT

Summer nights are always the best. Remember when I said I'm not the dress kind of girl? I take that back. I just love little white dresses, topped off with lots of blings and jewelry. Simple as it can be!

DOLCE&GABBANA DREAMING

Domenico and Stefano ignite the inner little-red-riding-without-the-hood in me. I craves myself some serious capes here.

AUSTERITY

SHANGHAI CALLING

I love how luxe this silk top is. The fit is a bit oversized and perfect worn as a dress. Have you noticed that I am going through my choker phase? :) Here is a mini D.I.Y tutorial for the classic silk black choker like the one I'm wearing here:

Step 1: Cut a piece of black silky ribbon about 3/4" wide and 26" long (I used my my lucky Chanel ribbon here!) 

Step 2: Tie it around your neck just tight enough to hold the choker in desire position. Et Voila!

bisous bisous,

B.

DIAMONDS ARE A GIRL'S BEST FRIEND















photos by Molly Sugar

I scouted this maxi dress at Urban Outfitters. Usually, I am not a maxi kind of girl. I think they are too pretty for me. I prefer something more extreme and boyish. But this dress worn underneath a basic gray soft tee, tied into a crop top, are perfect for my mood today. I also love how the hemline is draped very nicely, giving the perfect flowy finish. 

They say "Diamonds are a girl's best friend", and I can't seem to get enough of this tiara diamond choker. After all, an outfit wouldn't be completed without statement bling and a groovy pair of platforms to match.

bisous,

B.

BLACK OUT

I love leather. Even this 80 something degrees couldn't stop me from wearing head to toe black with a touch of leather on top, do you agree? :)

PHOTO DIARY: GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN

In case you're wondering, my daily tasks involve swinging and posing with Hells Angels. Some behind the scene shots at recent shoots I did on location at East Village. Jess and JP are stunning and amazing as always!

P.S I BRAID THIS


I had some time to kill at the office the other day so me and Caroline decided to whip out some funky extensions so I can show off my braiding skill.

It's a loose fishtail braid and all you do is start out with two strands of hair about an inch each, put them over each other then pull in more hair as you keep doing it, until you've braided all the way. Piece of cake, right?! I am going to try out another braid next time. Let me know if you have any suggestions/ challenges for moi!

Bisous,

Be

PS: Have you seen The Dark Knight Rises? It was seriously the best movie I've watched in a long time.  I'm not going to spoil anything but can I just say: IT WAS EPIC!! Hurry to your nearest IMAX now!!!

I really don't know where to begin. This is probably the xyz time I revisited and edited this post. I keep coming back to it, the very beginning. All I wanted was the perfect start. But now that I think about it, there's no right way to start. You just have to take the first step and the rest will unfold.

I love fashion. Almost five months after I started Dressmonsta I still love fashion and even long before that I've always love fashion. I played paperdoll long before Barbie came along.

High fashion is my lover and the high street is my friend. I love creating new looks inspired by  everything from classic movies to the latest runway trends. My personal style is always girly with a dash of playfulness and a bit rock n' roll. I want to experiment more and have fun with clothes. So here it is, I presented you Dressmonsta, a place where I come to share my deepest fashion fantasies with you.

I hope you like it and remember that life is too short to wear boring clothes!

Thank you for visiting the blog,

kisses
