A Promo Wish 1

"Bravery never goes out of fashion." -William Thackerary

Whether or not you consider yourself a big fashion guru, there are always those styles you are drawn to.  That creative niche inside all of us draws us to the fabric, the detailing, the texture, the fit, the layers, and even the smell of particular articles of clothing. 

For me, clothes have always been about comfort.  I LOATHE being uncomfortable in what I am wearing.  For example, I will avoid wearing dress slacks at any and all costs.  Most of that comes from the fact that I can never find a decent pair that actually fit. The majority of us probably have a staple article of clothing that we can always depend on.  Me?  I have a pair of Miley Cyrus (from Walmart for about $12) pair of skinny black pants that are my go-to item.  They go with EVERYTHING.  The material is so soft from where I've worn them so much.  See outfit below:

also, that gray of my staples throughout the fall and winter. 

So what is fashion?  A wise woman once said that if you aren't comfortable in what you are wearing, the clothes end up wearing you.  That wise woman was Kristen Stewart. Throughout the past several years, we have seen Kristen's style really grow and mature.  Some would probably describe her style as edgy and different.  However, Kristen has made the comment before that she knows as soon as she tries on a dress or outfit whether it is going to work for her.  I don't think she sees the outfits that she wears as is what she is comfortable in.  BUT, she isn't afraid to take risks, and that is what is so unique about her style.  She is brave when it comes to fashion.  

So where is all this fashion talk going?  A couple months ago, I sent a few of my friends a Word document of all the Fall 2012 collection outfits that I would want Kristen to wear for Breaking Dawn promo.  One of the friends (*cough Kim *cough) responded back about a week ago saying "No, that's not gonna work."  Long story short, she gave me a challenge.  She told me to pick my 10 favorite outfits from the Spring 2013 collections that I would want Kristen to wear for BD promo.  Here's the kicker...I could only choose one outfit per designer.  Cue freakout.  I was only allowed to choose one J. Mendel, one Jason Wu, one Elie Saab...THAT'S NOT AN EASY TASK.  But I completed the challenge, and so did she.  I also asked another friend, Crystal, if she would help out and send me her favorites.  

For the next three days, there will be a post dedicated to each of our picks.  Today is Crystal's top 10 looks.

Crystal's picks:

L'Wren Scott Spring 2013 Read-to-Wear (I want this dress myself - but I think K would look amazing in it) 

Maiyet Spring 2013 Ready-to-Wear (I think her legs would look AMAZING in this) 

Elie Saab Spring 2013 Ready-to-Wear (this neckline would look stunning on her) 

Chanel Spring 2013 (I'm a sucker for classic Chanel and black and white - I think she could rock this with a pair of red shoes or Leboutins) 

Roland Mouret Spring 2013 (Love K in red - she could rock this) 

Burberry Prorsum Spring 2013 ( would love to see her wear this at a junket or photo call)

Lela Rose Spring 2013 (again - a great press junket photo call dress) 

Monique Lhuillier Spring 2013 (as you may know - I LOVE monique and I think this dress would look amazing on K and would be different than what she normally wears)

Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2013 (her in white AND this neckline? DEAD)

Zuhair Murad Spring 2013 (just love love love this dress) 

LOVE!  Crystal picked several dresses from the Spring 2013 collections that I would kill to see Kristen wear.  

A/N: Crystal, thank you so much for taking the time out to do this for me.  I really appreciate it!  Also, Crystal is doing an amazing giveaway on her blog.  She is giving away a copy of Elle Canada to a lucky follower.  All you have to do is leave a comment on her blog.  If you want to get extra crazy and enter twice, get over to Twitter and tweet the following: "Because Kristen is pretty & Elle Canada was epic – @takemetobliss is giving away a copy to a lucky reader over @"  Giveaway ends on Tuesday October 9th at midnight EST.  Go Go Go ---> Take Me to Bliss Giveaway


  1. You are amazing. ALSO I LOVE your fashion writing style. Seriously.

    So - it's now my mission to find a man to buy me that black and white Chanel number. I'm coveting it.


  2. I choose the Elie Saab dress or the burberry one! :)

  3. I think she'll make a big statement no matter what she wears (TIFF & NY showing of OTR), but I'd love to see the Monique Llhuillier and Zuhair Murad on her. The Cushnie et Ochs would be in contention if it was a floor length dress but the others would be beautiful for the photocalls. I just hope JLo and Taylor Swift don't snatch up the Murad dress first!
