Bonnie Tsang is an L.A.-based photographer, designer, blogger and mom, and like many of her fans, we suspect she must be close kin to Wonder Woman. How else would you explain her composure in juggling the responsibilities of single parenthood and self-employment while conquering—in the most tasteful of ways—the universes of Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest? We suppose she could just have a whole lot of talent and discipline.
B for Bonnie is where she chronicles her love for food, style, Southern California living and her adorable 8-year-old Miss V (Venise to her schoolteachers). Her stellar skills behind the camera make paging through each post dangerously delightful; to land on her site can mean the loss of hours and hours of office productivity. (You can’t say we didn’t warn you.)
Below Bonnie shares her style story, tips for eating out in L.A., as well as an original portrait by Miss V.

What inspired you to start B for Bonnie?
If I see something I like, I’ll want to share it with everyone, which is why I started the blog; it’s an outlet for me.
How would you describe your aesthetic?
I believe deep down I’m a minimalist, but at the same time I’m also always changing. Being a true Sagittarius, I’m always exploring and trying new things.
What’s the best fashion advice you’ve received?
Never purchase something when you’re in a bad mood because then you’ll always be reminded of the negatives.
Wardrobe wish list for spring?
Lanvin’s Moon River Tote, Sheriff & Cherry sunglasses, a Proenza Schouler striped tee and embroidered skirt by ICB and an Eva Fehren cuff.
We’ve got 12 hours in L.A. Where should we eat breakfast, lunch and dinner?
If you’re near the east side: Breakfast at Bottega Louie, lunch at Salts Cure and dinner at Animal. But if you’re near the west: Breakfast at Gjelina Take Away, lunch at Huckleberry and dinner at Gjelina.
If you were “accidentally” locked in Barneys overnight, what would we find you wearing in the morning?
Oh, that’d be so much fun if it came true! You’d find me wearing The Row’s Corby sweater, wide leg Derek Lam pants, a pair of gold Manolos, a Loren Stewart gold ring, Illesteva sunglasses and a Valextra briefcase (I like to use a men’s bag as my camera bag sometimes).
Last but not least, will Miss V draw us a portrait of you looking fab?
