Pretty Brilliant is a style blog for women who love themselves and also love fashion. I have loved fashion since I was a young girl but have recently learned that style is deeply personal. And with this blog, I hope to help encourage and inspire women to love themselves while developing a style that is all your own.

This isn’t just a site about me but about you too.

Fashion isn’t just about what you wear but it’s about expressing who you are. It’s a shift in your mind that you are going to love yourself and your body and dress in a way that makes you happy. Break the rules. Don’t be like everyone else. Own your uniqueness. I am rooting for you!

Hello darlings! I’m Antonet Kruse & my love of fashion started as a young girl. I drew my very first fashion sketch at the age of 6, & I still have it. As I grew older, I decided I wanted to be a fashion designer. I was somewhat frustrated by not finding what I wanted in stores, so I decided I would learn how to make clothing.

I did go on to college & I have an Associates’s degree in Design & Merchandising with my concentration being Fashion Design. Learning to design & create my own clothing was so amazing to me. I could sit at the sewing machine for hours & love every minute.

Along the way, I became a mom, got married then divorced & lost that part of me that loved sewing, fashion & creating. It took a while to find that inner love for fashion in me again but now that I have it back I want to share that love with the world.

Follow me on this journey as I grow in my style.
