MoniqueB ft Born Pretty

This outfit I wore a couple weeks ago, is a combination of styles I call it "Smart Casual" i guess this is a signature look for me as there are smart element hence the jacket and the shoes but also casual pieces like the jeans and the chain.

DENIM X DENIM


To be honest with you the past week I must have been in my own little world as this post is well over due. I thought of this look ages ago, shot it couple weeks ago and its only now I am posting it *Sigh* I need to do better........I love it when I find a good pair of high-waisted trousers that fit well on the body (which can be hard to find especially for me) bear in mind I only own two pairs of high waisted trousers and this is the 2nd time I've worn them since I brought them in january 2014. I have always been a fan of  high-waisted trousers . It’s a great way to show your lady silhouette without showing too much, fuss- free kind of outfit.

DOUBLE BLUES!!

It has been awhile since I last posted and I guess life just took over, had so much things to think about and I'm still trying to figure out even now as you read this but I know it will all work out.... I don't know how but it will!!! 


when I saw this picture and these two powerful words "Don't Quit" and "Do It" I knew I had to push through as our greatest weakness lies in giving up.... To succeed we must always try .....just one more time....... anyways less of me over thinking things =/

In this post I’m wearing my favourite blazer for the moment that I bought from beyond Retro one of my fav shops (guaranteed you can always find some good bargains there). You can wear it anytime of day, it just depends on how you style them. I wore it on a casual day with blue ripped jeans, a chunky gold chain and slip on shoes earlier that day and then wore it again in the evening with black heels.

Ripped Jeans: TopShop
Heels: Zara

Smart Casual - OOTD


Hey Guys and Dolls,

.......A few blog post later and I really cant get enough of the "button up shirt" look, its also a great way to create layers and to stay warm during these cold and rainy days in London ='(. But on a brighter note this whole look was based on the new nike huaraches in nude (suede) and black. I'm not really a person that wears trainers much (unless I'm on my way to work) however! quiet a few trainers have caught my eyes recently and these are the latest addition to my wardrobe. 

This look is a combination of smart (the coat, shirt and jumper) and casual (the trainers). I love the Kenzo bright orange see- through clutch bag which adds something different to the look.... I also received the clutch as a present from a great group of ladies (thank you my amazing DVF girls!!!).....  so check out the look below let me know what you think! x











Coat: Zara
Demin Shirt: Topshop
Jumper: Zara
Black Jeggings: H&M
Nike Huaraches: Offspring
Kenzo Bag: Matches Fashion
Gold Two Finger Ring: Ebay

Feeling GREY !!!

My first post for 2014 (well over due *hides face*) …….. so I guess what I should be saying is "HAPPY BELATED NEW YEAR"  guys…


So this look was inspired by the weather we have been having in London lately, its been quite moody cold and rainy hence the Post title. I always find it easier putting a look together when its summer, I guess when its winter I prefer to be warm and I do tend to wear whatever  as I get cold easily (haha I sound like a granny 0_0 but its so00o true)…. 

This is what I came up with. I  LOVE combining feminine pieces (the skirt) with a masculine touch (leather jacket) I guess where I work has an influence on my style as it all about contradiction which I have a hugeeeeee  mini obsession with at the moment XD so please don't be surprised it you see my next couple blog post, of me wearing something random like trainers with a skirt 0_o …hmmm stay tuned =D.

The Statement Piece


Happy holidayssssS my friends!!! now that christmas is well and truly over  ='(  New Years is well on the way =). 2013 has been an interesting years for me in terms of getting to know myself deeper learning about life, changing over jobs. But starting up this blog has been a way for me to escape reality and also expressing what I love doing it has all been a blessing. I am grateful for the past year and truly excited for 2014 =D. Even though this is my last blog post for 2013 =( it surly wont be my last!!! so have a read below and check out the images hope you enjoy. =D

I recently received this stunning exclusive statement necklace (which I am in love with) from a new up and coming UK luxury jewellery label called "BURJU" this company specialises in beautifully hand crafted one-off necklaces made from Swarovski stones when I saw the necklace an instant look came to mind, so I paired my necklace with a crisp white high collar shirt and a navy blue jumper. I kept the look simple allowing the necklace to shine.

I really wanted to get a tartan piece into my wardrobe and this pencil skirt was ideal as it is a classic shape (with a sexy little split in the back) and the fun tartan print. I'm such a fan of that "pencil skirt with a jumper" look as its great for all occasions especially during the winter season, when you want to look fashionable but also keep warm =D.
check out the look below:
