Style inspiration: Badgley Mischka

I used to hate one-shoulder dresses. Why? One, because most of the one-shoulder dresses looks like you are miss America with a name tag thing hanging across your shoulder. If you don't look miss America, usually one-shoulder dresses make you look like you are wearing a big plastic bag across your shoulder. Also, it is so inconvenient to have only one shoulder strap, instead of two. You must wear a strapless bra to be able to look right, and I don't like wearing strapless bra, since it always slowly falls off on me because of the flatness of my body.

For the above reasons, I never wore one-shoulder dresses, let alone made one. Until I saw a fall 2009 collection of Badgley Mischka. First of all, I am very impressed that two guys are designing these gorgeous dresses. I know a lot of designers are men, but it still amazes me how men can design something as fitting to woman's body like their collection, and something that makes women beautiful in them.

The three one-shoulder dresses below look so classy, not looking too 80's disco-ish. I especially like the one on the left, with a ribbon falling from your shoulder.
Also, I love their use of color - beautiful colors! violet, dark blue and purplish silver.. I love them all.

And their ad with Olsen sisters are just too cute!

Those are my inspiration for designing one-shoulder dress with this dark blue fabric I got yesterday.
