The Truth About It All: Standard Diner Albuquerque

There is a lot to be said about Downtown, Albuquerque .. But in a few words its underdeveloped, I am not here to sham on the this area of the city it is just unexpectedly so much different than you would imagine. But as previously stated I am not here to say never visit. I love finding variety, when it comes to eating somewhere whether its in the atmosphere of the place, the selection of the menu, the friendly staff or good prices for good food portions.

The Truth About It All: The Good Dress

Everyone would argue that if you are bridesmaid, you are usually the worst part of the wedding party. Why? You may ask, well the answer is simple, brides are always under stress even if it does not appear that way. They stress about their weight, about finding the right dress, the right kind of food to suit all the guests taste buds, the color of the flowers, and well every little detail they feel is important to making their wedding day perfect.

The Truth About It All: Cucumber Face Peel

It has been two plus months since we last said goodbye to summer, so you would expect that me being the way I am would be back to my daily facial routine of cleanse, tone , moisturize and occasionally scrub. But nope I have been doing the complete opposite between work , signing up for classes, family time, wrapping presents and the holidays in general. I had not gone back to taking thorough care of my face.

The Truth About It All: The Bucket Bag

The Bucket bag is the bag of the moment, everyone including me is loving it. It has been seen around being worn by yours truly, amongst other fashion bloggers, models, actresses and fashion icons such as the olsen twins and the list can go on for a while. The point being that this little bag is taking the fashion world by storm and who are we to question such beauty.

The Truth About It All: Heart Of Hearts

                     Hello there lovely readers,

For quite some time I have been wanting to start a personal blog, aside from this one , so that my personal things are not mixed within this blog..

I started the blog because sometimes people need somewhere to vent, let things go, or just express feelings that they would otherwise keep to themselves. I named it heart of hearts and will be posting often but not everyday. So if you guys want to check it out here is the link.

The Truth About It All: Black and White

Black, white, and red are just three of the top colors to wear. In this post i combined all three of them together.
As you can see I am not shooting outside like I usually do and it was an interesting way to shoot for the blog, I got to put together outfits that Id usually go for but they were more studio outfits than street style outfits. It was a different take of what I usually go for. I loved this outfit because it consisted of two of my favorite trends from last season that transcended onto this one and one that came back for fall 2014. The white crop top with a collar gave it a bit more of a polished look, that combined very well with my highwaisted mid-calf skirt. And last but not least I added to the outfit maroon pointed toe pumps which I love. It was a simple chic outfit. What do you guys think? Yay or Nay? Let me know in the comments below. xx -Steph

The Truth About It All: Ciao Fall

(Forever21 Dress)

Hello loves Steph here, Its been about a month almost since my last outfit post I got soo caught up blogging about all my favorite new collections from fashion week but in between all the writing I took time do a few outfit posts. These outfits where shot in a white background which was unexpected but I liked going a different way about it instead of running around I just kinda stood in one place and changed poses (no worries i'll always love to shoot outside with scenery around me). It was a rainy and humid day outside either way so I guess it worked out for the best. This outfit was inspired by the comfort I believe comes with the arrival of fall and soon enough winter too. One of my favorite outfits. What do you guys think? Yay or Nay? xx -Steph

The Truth About It All: David Koma Spring 2015

I think I just added a new designer to my list of favorites. The David Koma Spring 2015 collection was everything I never knew could be (if that makes sense). I've always been obsessed with geometric cutouts and body-con pieces and this show did not disappoint me at all. Although Koma is also living his lifelong dream of being the artistic director of Mugler it did not take away from his very own collection. The very architectural designer who usually defaults for using black and white on all of his designs, decided to this time around incorporate some colors that represent spring. The designs featured cutout waists, sheer panel details, and the always lovely and flattering asymmetrical hem. The collection over all was fantastic. What do you guys think? Yay or Nay? xx -Steph

The Truth About It All: Marchesa Spring 2015

Wow people just,WOW ! I cannot help but be overly obsessed with the new Marchesa Spring 2015 collection. Everything is soo fabulous , i was in awe when i watched the show  every design is soo breathtaking from head to toe. Every piece that strutted down the runway made you feel like you were in a magical bohemian garden or something of the sorts. I loved how most of the pieces had some sort of floral patterns or pastel colors. A lot of sheer and lightweight fabrics were used for the collection, every style had something that made it a little sexy whether it showed cleavage in the front, showed off the shoulders, had a slit on the skirts, or had sheer fabric which was provocative. All of the designs represented spring, some of the models wore flower crowns which added to the boho style of the collection. Some of the first pieces in the collection had a very 70s vibe to them which is sometimes hard to pull off without going over the top. The entire collection as a whole was magnificent, which I could wear certain pieces I fell in love with. What do you guys think? Yay or Nay? xx -Steph

The Truth About It All: Altuzarra S/S15

(Business Woman)
NYFW is over now and we're moving onto London, Milan, and Paris fashion week but we cannot forget how chic the Altuzarra S/S15 collection was. I could see the style of more than one of us girls reflected. It was truly pleasing to the eye, you had many types of women reflected in the designs. The color palette used for this collection is one I favor, its the colors that represent spring here we have a very subtle selection of colors most of them being sky blues, a very light pink, golden tones,etc. With black not being left out of the picture since its a color that is worn all year round and is great for nighttime. I labeled the last look The Carrie Bradshaw because it truly reminds me of Carries style if the show was still running I could totally see her wearing that dress for a day out with the girls , wouldn't you? What do you guys think of the the collection for this spring? Yay or Nay? xx -Steph

The Truth About It All: Comfy Day

Hello Loves, your dearest fashion blogger here. :) How have you guys been ?  I've been looking for some inspiration for something new I'm working on for the blog and in these past days have been clinging to comfortable outfits, I always say that sometimes comfort comes first so when I finally decided to work on a new outfit post I continued to cling to that comfort and along came this post. I was supposed to do a different outfit but got lazy last minute and ended up not changing , so my photographer Janice said sure why not lets do a laid back outfit. And so we did, when we arrived where we were going to shoot it just so happened to be perfect for such a comfortable outfit like this. It was sundown which made for good but complicated lighting. We shot at this old warehouse she had seen just fifteen minutes from where we both live. Across the street you could see this really small little restaurant and in the air you smelled barbecue. We explored the whole perimeter which led to really good pictures with a kind of dark/creepy and adventurous feel. There are more outfit posts to come within the next week that arent laid back. :) What do you guys think for this very comfy outfit day? Yay or Nay? xx -Steph

The Truth About It All: Tibi S/S15

The Tibi Spring/Summer 2015 collection was on fire I loved all of it, the styles varied but remained true to the brand. I'll begin by saying that in the past few years I hadn't really tried clothes that are styled the way Tibi styles them its oh so edgy yet, girly and I really really like it. I've always had to chose either go girly with this outfit or go edgy.. And had always ended up stuck in the middle of the two not knowing which side to pick , but with Tibi you have the perfect balance for the edgy/girly gal. This is why I love it soo much , their collections have the perfect balance and I am now a huge fan. The Spring/Summer2015 collection is truly stunning because the looks transition so easily from day to night.  What do you guys think of the new Tibi S/S15 ? Yay or Nay? xx- Steph
