My Style

Beauté et l’élégance

By  | 

Yesterday I have shared that I’ll be offline for almost the rest of the day and that’s because I went to take care some personal biz. I wanted to make sure that I live up to my promise especially to my mama. I feel truly blessed and there’s nothing more that I could ever ask for. Everything else would just come in as “extra” and even if I don’t get have all my material wants its fine coz I have everything that I could ever want that no money can buy. Happiness, Love, Contentment, and Peace of mind. Anyway, aside from taking care of some personal biz I also managed to squeeze a little shopping. It’s more like an investment rather than a so-called luxurious treat. I bought a mini sewing machine, some thread & needle, garter, fabric and even a cardboard and sketch pad which all came from my hard work that paid off. I am proud that I can say my blog is not just a blog, but it is a part of my life that makes me happy and helps me take care of my bills. Here’s some pictures of my loot…

…oh, I also bought a corset top!

…and of course, after trying on the corset top I just had to do extra snaps to share an outfit post here and in my lookbook page. I decided to match the corset top with my Leopard print Lita boots as the top has a little leopard print outline on it as well.


Love it? Hype it!

I chose to title this outfit post with “Beauté et l’élégance” which means Beauty and Elegance which is obviously inspired by the outfit. I feel very feminine with a hint of fierceness because of the daring corset top. Not too much skin but enough to make a statement.

For those of you who are wondering, my poufy updo is very easy to do and if anyone if interested to see a hair tutorial for this feel free to let me know and I’ll make one. Til’ next! xox.

My name is Angela Ricardo Bethea and I am the founder and editor behind ( and many other online publications ) ... I love the finer things in life, I'm quite a shop-a-holic and a certified jet-setter. So if I am not behind my laptop to blog, I'd probably be shopping if not traveling.

    We got a sewing machine at home that I don’t know how to use. I should probably start learning how so I cna make my own clothes. Lmao.

    The corset is so nice! I actually thought you’l be having a sexy shoot again when I mentioned buying the corset and wanting to take a photo with it. 😛 Corset tops are really nice neh? It makes the body look slim. I just don’t like the part that they make my boobs have a cleavage. :)) So uncomfortable.
