Our Little Piece of Forever

So.................................................................*deep breaths* Twilight is officially over.


Right now, that thought is still very hard to grasp.  When you have something that has encompassed such a vast amount of your life for 4 years, it is hard to let it go.  Not that Twilight is going away forever, but it's the end of set pics, behind-the-scenes goodies, Twi promo, a new movie every November (well Eclipse was technically in June but whatever).  

I was talking to a friend yesterday, a friend I met through this saga, about how weird I've been feeling the past two days.  As strange as this sounds, it is like there is an emptiness...a piece feels like it is missing now that the saga is over.  Even though I am thrilled to see where Rob and Kristen go from here, there is a part of me that is sad to say goodbye to Twilight.  Friends, a HUGE wave of nostalgia has set in, and it's giving my emotions whiplash.   

There is something about this series and what it did to people that is very much undefinable.  I think it touched something inside many of us that will be impossible to match again.  It lit a fire.  There's a spark there that can't be replaced, and I am okay with that.  I don't know if I can speak for everyone when I say this, but I don't think I ever want that feeling replaced.

Being a part of this fandom brought a LOT of great friends into my life.  There are so many good memories I have gained, and I can wholeheartedly say I do not regret a thing.  Even through the cheesy dialogue, the horrible wigs, the sometimes questionable CGI, the :28 seconds of LIES, I wouldn't change it for the world.  To be a fan of this series is a once in a lifetime experience.  

It will always be our little piece of forever.....

A Promo far

We've officially entered the last round of Twilight's over after next week. *Cue sobs*

pretty sure someone is going to have to come drag me out of the theater when it's over

Rob, Kristen, and Taylor have been busy promoting the movie.  There was the press junket and MTV first last week, tv appearances this week, and the premieres next week.  Just think, this is the last time we are going to get to see interactions like this....


There's going to be a special post for all the sentimental stuff later.  So to keep my mind off having a breakdown, let's talk fashion.  

Kristen's first promo stop was two weeks ago in Japan.  She was only there for a day, but she kicked off promo with a BANG.  She came out to the red carpet wearing a Spring/Summer 2013 Louis Vuitton checkered playsuit.  Let me preface this by saying, I did NOT like this collection at all when it first debuted.  I didn't really see any of the clothes as being that "wearable" but then Kristen stepped out in this...

hands down new favorite pic of her
YES.  Her makeup was flawless.  I really dug the cat eye winged liner.  It gave this look the needed edge.  Also, need someone to buy me those shoes for Christmas.  

Her next stop was LA press.  But before getting into Breaking Dawn mode, she appeared at the Beverly Hilton Hotel to present her fellow actor, Jodie Foster, with the Cecile B. DeMille Award.  She wore a grey, bodycon dress by Bec & Bridge.  The dress was nothing extraordinary...very simple, yet fresh.

Breaking Dawn/OTR press conference.  She wore a black and green block Stella McCartney dress.  LOVE her in green and can't wait to see her wear that color more.  It does amazing things for her eyes.

OTR AFI Film Fest Premiere.  Kristen wore a fresh-off-the-runaway look from the Spring/Summer 2013 Balenciaga collection.  Personally, this was one of my favorite ensembles from the collection.  Like I've said before, Balenciaga can be a hit or miss for me.  This collection actually really surprised me, and I can definitely see Kristen rocking several of these looks.  Her makeup was FLAWLESS.  I'm probably one of the few that prefers darker makeup on her.  The hair, meh...could have been better.


And to end on possibly one of my favorite looks on her so far.  She stepped out in a Peter Pilotto Resort 2013 dress.  THIS.WAS.FABULOUS.  The colors omgggggggggggg.  Thank you for finally putting her hair in a ponytail again.  Also, pretty sure Kim died when she stepped out in this...she loves Peter Pilotto's clothes and has been itching for Kristen to wear one.



What has been your favorite look so far?  

Absolutely can't wait to see all the premiere looks next week.  But I'm almost afraid to wish it into existence because then it will be all over and again, body physically cannot handle that thought right now.  Till next time....
