TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB concert at Rumsey Playfield Summerstage last night was magical! I was a bit horrified at first because it felt like London weather in New York the whole day. It rains for 15 minutes, then sunshine again, and it went on like that the entire day. As soon as we arrived at the concert, the sky cleared out and it was a beautiful full moon.

My must-have item for outdoor concert outfit: Heeled shoes that are high enough for you to see pass people and comfortable enough to dance in for at least three hours.

Something good can certainly works *wink wink* !

COMME DES GARCON


SHE IS THE BIRTH CHILD OF MADONNA AND TEDDY BOY!

There are several requirements in order to pull off boyish chic VOGUE PARIS style:
1. Knife-sharp bone structure.
2. Legs for days.
3. Attitude, attitude, attitude.

I love love love the styling here. It's like Madonna and Teddy Boy make love and have a baby. White shirts are a must, take it from your boyfriend because those are the best. A nicely tailored pair of black pants is much needed. You know I used to live in skinny jeans for months and then it finally hit me, each silhouette has its own beauty. Fashion is all about experimenting!

Blazers are necessary. All thanks to Yves Sain Laurent's le smoking suit. 

A simple guide to le garcon style can easily be done:

Throw on a blazer, add suspender, some heavy chain jewelry, buckle up your leather belt (not the skinny ones), whip your hair back and forth for that perfectly nonchalant messy effect, step into your favorite pair of brogues and white socks.

Voila! You're now ready to go out and kick ass!

MONSTA RADAR: BALENCIAGA S/S 13


A SKIRT SUIT FOR EVERY OCCASION
*


Here it is! The prettiest Balenciaga collection in Nicolas's time yet. Such feminine silhouette with delicate cut and subtle ruffle with a dash of pleating, in total contrast with last season uber futuristic and edgy motifs. Cristobal would be proud! 


The new IT skirt is here. One for school, one for brunch, and one for a night out! I'll take one in every style please! 


The perfect minimalistic ensembles one would ever need. Dressmonsta has her Black and White days too you know! ;)

I can't wait for more Paris goodness! Mean time, I'll be busy working on Dressmonsta Upgrade. Major ch-ch-changes is coming up really soon <3

DENIM NATION


GOOD JEANS ARE SIMPLY DIVINE!

(Pixie Market denim shirt, F21 Jeans, Vintage Fendi bag, Vince Camuto quilted pumps, Daydream Nation bracelet)

If there's one thing I treasure, it's boyfriend denim jeans. This is my ONE and ONLY pair :) I found them at Forever 21 two years ago and they were perfect! Once I found the one, I tend to wear them until they fall apart. The best jeans are always the one that are so worn-in!

I love denim. I think it is the greatest invention in the world after the bikini. Next hunt? Denim pencil skirt. I can't wait to show you how versatile it is! Stay tuned Dressmonstas ;)

DIANA'S DYNASTY


"I WASN'T A FASHION EDITOR. I WAS THE ONE AND ONLY FASHION EDITOR!"

"The fashion world changes all the time. You can see the approach of evolution in clothes. You can see everything in clothes."

Where do I begin about the legendary Diana Vreeland? I remember some time about three years ago, I was browsing through the fashion bookshelf at my school's library. I used to think nerd is chic, and I still do. There were all these old titles that are out of prints. That's what I called hidden treasures. I remember seeing this red book with D.V embossed on the cover. I grabbed it by curiosity, and it became one of my favorite bedtime stories ever since. 

Diana had a vision. Her aesthetic was to give people what they want before they even knew they want it. She was modern beyond her times. She saw something special in a person and she embraced it. Diana had always had an eye for talents: Barbara Streisand, Penelope Tree, Twiggy, Mick Jagger, Angelica Huston, you name it. Her Bazaar's column "Why don't you" brought about the most crazy yet visionary ideas about life, love, and above all, style. Harper's Bazaar UK is still embracing the column nowadays. 

Diana is pure lengend. I could go on about Diana for days, but luckily the inspiring documentary "Diana Vreeland: The Eye Had to Travel" is opening in theatre this weekend. Now...

Why don't you dress in red and go see Mrs. Vreeland for yourself!

I could live in oversized sweater all winter. 

I shop in the mens' section at vintage store sometimes. They have hidden treasures hanging on the rack waiting for you to come and get them. I like my sweater a size or two too big, longer sleeves, boxier silhouette. The perfect sweater is the one that makes me feel like I'm swimming in them. It is a luxurious feeling I always long for... 

Cheers to a beautiful fall!

<3

IT'S GEM TIME!

I could go on about my obsession with bijoux for days, and for the record gem is my new best friend. I'm a skirt person, but there is no such thing as a "normal" or "basic" skirt for a Dressmonsta. I need some spices to it, and gems seem to be the perfect solution. Opulence is extremely charming, don't you agree!?

PS: Let's take over the world together! Connect with Dressmonsta baby @DaulBe

PHOTO DIARY: ETE D'AMOUR


SUMMER IS NATURE'S WAY OF SAYING, "LET'S PARTY!"
*















(The roof, Brigitte Bardot tribute, the Creperie, view to die for, posers, some serious shades, Balenciaga's finest, the atmosphere, Bing Ji Ling, shoe fetishists, Jade Jagger spotted, Cacharel realness, crepes time, get elevated, dinner)

A huge thanks to Le Bain, The Standard, Pixie Market for hosting this amazing party! And applauses for Bing Ji Ling for the music. I hope everyone had a blast! 

I'm such a foodie! I had glasses of Sancerre and not one, but three crepes for starters. The Creperie at Le Bain is simply irresistable. After sunset, we all head downstairs to The Standard Grill for dinner. Then off to Y-3 for the 10 years celebration after party. 

Can I just say that it was the dopest party ever! The holographic wall from the show earlier was glowing throughout the entire night. It goes from black and white to stripes and colors, almost Origami like. It was mesmerizing!! I couldn't help but dance the night away and completely forgot about the heels fact. My feet hated me the next morning but it was such a beautiful night, it's completely worthwhile!
