'tis the season to be pretty

It will be Christmas in a few days dearies.  Don't forget to wear a little sparkle and a touch of glam on Chirstmas Day. :)  I would love it if you could send me photos of you in your head candy during this Holiday Season!

By the way, I will be closing shop starting on Thursday Dec. 23 and I will be back on Dec 27.  

Happy Holidays Darlings,

from the bride

"Hello bon! I received the pieces today, and they are absolutely perfect. I am so looking forward to meeting with my makeup artist by December so that I can show him your pieces and we can give the veil a trial. Thank you very much for your help. I will definitely tune in to your site for new items.

I promise to send you pictures of us wearing your pieces, but the wedding is not until next year, but the other pieces I will be using earlier for prenup pictorials and other holiday parties coming up. Thanks again, Godbless always. "
- Cj

I just love getting compliments from lovely brides-to-be :)

I began this year with an i ♥ 2010 post and you know what, it has been a fantastic year and there's still more fantastic news all around.

1.The year's about to end and orders for next year's weddings have already begun.

2. I've been working on a whole new set of pieces to bring you all a little sparkle this Christmas.

3.Planning another fab shoot with my fave Makeup Diva, Mica Tuano and team fashown.

4. Working on a fab collab with artist, Lala Gallardo.

5. I have found another fabulous new home for Bonne.

I am so excited to tell all of you that Bonne will soon be available at the very posh AC+632 over at Greenbelt 5.

I have always loved that store and Firma in Greenbelt 3, and I am so happy that Bonne will be part of their lovely roster of merchants. Selected Bonne pieces will be sold  exclusively at AC+632. So please do pop by soon darlings.  I will let you all know once the pieces are readily available.

Bonne's official model

This lovely lady will be donning my latest work. A vintage mannequin my friend saw at a thrift store.   I couldn't resist that lovely face, the pretty eyes and those pouty lips.  They don't make them like they used to.  So I brought her home after my friend sent me this photo.

All she needs is a lovely bob with bangs :) 

lovely text message

received this message on my phone. this really made my day ladies :)
Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding… Our dream wedding came true because of you. Words are not enough to express our gratitude — everyone was all praises talaga. They loved it. - From a lovely bride who just got married a few days ago
