But I held steadfast with my promise, and am typing up a post full of treats during my Thanksgiving break.

Before I go and give you a taste of the schedule, I would like to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.

How has this wonderful day of eating like crazy been for you all?

I’ve had better years, when there was more than just immediate family present.

The Edge of Glory: The Key Staples To Give Your Look An Edgier Feel

I just adore the edgy look, and here’s how to make your style more edgy!

Leather Jackets – This is the easiest way to get a more edgy look. Match it up with a girly flirty dress to get a sexy badass style. Buckle has a variety of jackets ranging in prices of $34-$660 [which is where I bought mine].

Here is one of my favorites:

Scully Corset Sleeve Leather Jacket

[Scully Corset Sleeve Leather Jacket, $399, Buckle]

Studs – whether it be on your boots, leather jacket, or shirt, studs are a must for an edgy look. Here are a pair that I think would give some edge to a more dressy style of clothing.

Gorgeous studded dress:

[Studs & Stripes Dress, $29.80, Forever 21]

Combat boots – Not all combat boots are hideous! If you search hard enough, you’ll find the perfect pair for you.

– Barbarito boots from Aldo shoes, $250.

– Statler boots from Aldo Shoes, $80.

– Barberis boots from Aldo Shoes, on clearance for $69.99.

– Tundraa Black Leather women’s booties from Steve Madden, $149.95.

Ripped jeans – They don’t have to be crazy ripped, but maybe just a tear in the knee will do.

Dark colors – If you want an edgy look, then don’t go gallivanting around wearing neon colors or hot pink, although there are times when the look can be pulled by wearing a bright color.


Edge Of Glory: Kristen Stewart’s Casual Edgy Look

KStew, one of my fashion icons. She dresses for comfort, yet always manages to look stylish and edgy. Here’s how you can get this look too!

You can almost always find Kristen wearing skinny jeans, a T-shirt, wayfarers, and a pair of Converse or Keds. The main things that give her the more edgy looks is the way her hair and makeup are done. Her hair is messy, but not in the I-haven’t-brushed-my-hair-in-ages way, but more in the I-can’t-stop-running-my-hands-through-my-hair messy. Then there’s her makeup. It’s natural, where she’s barely wearing any. That is actually one of my favorite things about Kristen. She doesn’t wear that much makeup, so whenever you see a picture of her with no makeup on, your just like, well she doesn’t look all that different; unlike some celebs who when you see them without makeup, you’re like ‘holy hell, what happened to their face?!’

You can mainly see Kristen wearing smudged eyeliner and mascara, with a natural brown/tan eye shadow. It definitely makes it all the more special when she wears more makeup.

Would you like to achieve the I-C-S-R-M-H-T-M-H messy hair style that Kristen has? What about her makeup look? Well keep on reading then for some easy steps.

For hair, you could either lightly curl your hair. While curling your hair, make sure to not wrap tightly around the barrel of your curling iron. You want soft curls, that will turn into waves. Once you’re done curling your hair, lightly add some hair spray [not too much!]. After hair spraying your hair [make sure it’s dry], tip your head forward, until all of your hair is pointing towards the floor. Shake your head a bit, and scrunch it with your hands. Flip your hair right-side up and shake your head again.

And if you don’t want to go through all that work [which I prefer not to], just leave your hair natural, and run your fingers through your hair a bit [after brushing it and making sure all knots are out of course].

Makeup is real simple. Apply a light brown, nude colored shadow, blending as well as you can; curl lashes, and coat top and bottom lashes with mascara; lastly, apply a black or brown eye liner to your water line, and smudge it a bit.

I Must Apologize.

October 22, 2011

Bonjour chéris!

I realize it’s been a little over a month since I last posted, but that is because of school.

I’m sure you all understand of course.

I must keep my grades up and focus, focus, focus!

I will try to start drafting a new post for you all, or hopefully just make one next month. Maybe during Thanksgiving break?

I hope that your October has been amazing!

I know mine has gone by pretty fast, yet slightly slow at the same time.

Now let’s take a look at some of the beautiful dresses of the night!

Dianna Agron wearing a blue shimmery Roksanda Ilincic dress.

Jane Lynch, who plays Sue Slyvester in Glee wearing one of her four David Meister dresses.

Amy Poehler in a beautiful Peter Som dress.

Claire Dane in an embroidered gown from Oscar De La Renta's 2012 Resort collection.

An Intro & 2011 Emmys.

September 18, 2011

Bonjour chéris!

Welcome to my fashion and beauty blog.

I sincerely hope you love this blog, and subscribe to keep updated!

If you are interested in knowing more about moi, then click on the picture to the right, after reading and commenting on this post.

I’m not sure if I’ll be updating this blog frequently or not; maybe as it first starts off, it’ll be updated quite a bit.


How many of you have or are watching the Emmys right now?

Well the actual award show isn’t on as I type this at around six-thirty PM, but I’m watching the stars on the Red Carpet via E!

I assure you that there will be a better post about the fashion, tomorrow. But for now, here are a few gorgeous pictures that I have found.


Nina Dobrev of The Vampire Diaries. She is a stunner. Nina Dobrev looks gorgeous in whatever she chooses to wear, but she looks exceptionally beautiful in a scarlet red dress.

Don’t you just adore Nina Dobrev? She’s an amazing actress and naturally gorgeous. I’m incredibly jealous of her!


Lea Michele of Glee. Red seems to be the colour of the night, making many stars shine bright. Lea Michele looks amazing, and pulls off the padded shoulder very well. Most girls can not pull off the extra shoulder padding, but Lea can.
