Oh oh oh ohoo little china girl



Freja InfluenceVogue China pays tribute to Danish beauty Freja Beha Erichsen with Lachlan Bailey’s street style shots featuring Tao Okamoto. With a casual rock and roll style courtesy of fashion editor Clare Richardson, Tao sports a wardrobe of leather jackets and denim with red lips by Sally Branka and tousled locks by Rudi Lewis.










Liu Wen takes to the beach for the April issue of Vogue China where Hans Feurer shoots the Chinese model frockiling through the sand. Styled by Anne Christensen in ‘white hot’ looks from labels such as Viktor & Rolf, Moschino, Alexander Wang and more–Liu is all smiles and energy with a cropped ‘do.








Loving these editorial spreads of these beautiful oriental beauties. Love the tom boy elements incorporated into the styling, while still keeping its elegance. It makes me want to hymn David Bowies' China Girl song.




♪♫♬
Oh oh oh ohoo little china girl
Oh oh oh ohoo little china girl

I could escape this feeling, with my China Girl
I feel a wreck without my, little China Girl
I hear her heart beating, loud as thunder
Saw the stars crashing

♪♫♬,

Monique

Couldn't just leave Mr. Balenciaga alone, could ya Mr. Campbell?
You mother-humping knocker-off'r.

I have a love/hate relationship with you. At least do the poor shoe some justice. In the words of Stephanie Tanner...."how wwwuuddeeeee..."

July BBLA new inventory



Beautiful All Saints Silk SHEER dress

Perfectly Summer CLU dress

The Spanks for Dresses: Herve Leger

No. A silk dress

Marc Jacobs Dress

Joie Silk Dress

Geren Ford Dress




Hello!

Things have been busy at BBLA headquarters, and needless to say sometimes it's just too hard to keep up with oneself some times. In case you haven't viewed the lookbook from last month's past, there will be a few pieces from here that will be released with this batch including the Vena Cava dress, which we have gotten so much good feedback on. That jewel-toned color is absolutely the perfect splash of bold color for the summer!

All of these dresses were hand-picked with summer on our minds. They are perfect for whatever occasion.

Won't be doing a huge release of inventory, but will be doing it in small increments. Nevertheless, the opportunity is still there for the taking! Look out for designer bags, sunglasses, and the most adorable coveted apple necklace by Marc Jacobs that was made famous by Alexa. You know we love her over at BBLA. Le duh.

Hello new height





(Surface to Air Pandora platform heels)

So as I was packing up the inventory this morning for the new batch of store goodies I was shooting today, I came across a long forgotten (but not too long) purchase from Gilt. F-that company. Just kidding. Now I am forever indebted to them for allowing me to purchase these at a below fraction of the original retail price. I have had the biggest shoe boner for these ever since I previewed them last year at Project in Vegas last year.

I am not like most 'fashion' bloggers out there, where I can or just buy things on the whim, but I do surely obsess about things and rely on the good graces of the shoe gods to let them come my way by shoe-sale fate. Low and behold....It's safe to say, hot damn patience is a virtue!

These 5.5" sky scrapers are the most ridiculous and comfortable things I have put on my feet as far as height and comfort is concerned. Much more so than the Litas, hands down. Yes, I said it. The rich, deep berry bordeaux color is just too much to handle, and surprisingly enough goes with everything!

Luckily for you, I'm the gift that keeps on giving and I don't like keeping secrets. But let's just not get caught together wearing them at the same time. Click on the caption above, and it will direct you to pandora sale niravana. No Christmas did not come early, the summer sales just came faster. Do not miss!

Look for this in an upcoming BBLA shoot near you...

Besos,

-Monique
