B.Luu Boutique, A Stylista’s Haven

Recently I had the privilege of interviewing Bachmai Luu, owner of B.Luu located at 340 E. Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena, California.  When I initially met Bachmai a couple of years ago, aside from her warm demeanor, I took notice of her amazing footwear.  Each encounter was like a never ending fashion show, finally, upon engaging in conversation, she shared with me how she owns a boutique, which was no surprise given her fashion savvy.  The timing of our conversation was perfect, the 8th anniversary of B.Luu was approaching, and Bachmai was kind enough to extend an invite to me.  Upon crossing the threshold of her boutique, I was immediately impressed, her boutique was as stunning then as it is now, as she celebrates her 10th anniversary.

Just as Bachmai invited me to experience a bit of luxury a little more than 2 years ago, I’d like to invite you to experience one of the most fashion forward, relevant boutiques in Southern California.  I had an amazing time shooting our lovely model in an array of pieces perfect for any stylista’s wardrobe.  For my one-on-one with Bachmai, click here.

The layout of B.Luu is so appealing, at every turn there is beauty to behold in jewelry, denim, feminine dresses and handbags, from the dainty to the bold.  We started off the shoot with a pop of colour and mix of modern grunge meets feminine.
