The Truth About It All: For The Bride

Being a bride can get difficult I assume with all the planning , the guest list,seating arrangements,the theme color,the flowers, the vow writing, etc. The list could go on for ages, but when I saw these gorgeous Chanel sandals on Pinterest, I could not help but want to share a little bridal inspiration and style with any future brides out there. Everyone is obsessed with bridal couture, but lets be honest here its oh so complicated to chose wedding gowns with all the styles, textures, fabric, and now colors YES COLORS. Brides are not only wearing white now. Now they wear pink,mint green, a very light sky blue, red, and if you are on of those brides who wants to stand out forevermore from the traditional white there are also black wedding gowns. Vera Wang being one of the first designers I saw making black wedding gowns, I personally would not opt for that color considering the fact that i think it takes away from such as special occasion. The color makes it look like you are going to a black tie event instead of a wedding it makes the gown look like just any regular evening gown. I love them but would not wear them. I love Vera and the way she always perfectly captures the style of almost if not every bride out there. Her spring 2015 collection is breathtaking, it captivated me from the moment I saw it, as did the Oscar De La Renta 2015 collection. Both designers manage to keep a vintage look to all of the pieces in their collections, but still giving it a modern look which is exactly my style. Now lets talk about the shoes. The Shoes I believe are the most important thing Riiight after the dress. I am personally obsessed with the Chanel shoes at the very top. These classic Coco Chanel strappy sandals are truly breathtaking , I love the simplicity they have it makes them easy to wear for any special occasion. Of course I had to include the famous Manolos Carrie wore in Sex in the City to marry 'Mr.Big', as soon as the shoes were seen in the movie everyone fell in love with the gorgeous pumps. So much in fact that brides everywhere were wanting to buy them so Blahnik  raised the prices from a good $525 to a hefty $965 making an iconic shoe and almost unreachable. And of course I could not forget to put the very beautiful swan shoes that were made just for Bella in Twilights Breaking Dawn movie. What do you lovely ladies and future brides think? xx -Steph

The Truth About It All: The Sheer Linings

Sheer things are all the rage at the moment, From models,actresses and fellow fashion bloggers everyone is working the trend into their wardrobe. I love how these ladies all added their own style to this current trend. Remember when showing skin caused controversy, well not anymore since there are many ways to show skin without it going overboard. I personally love Nicole Richies sheer mint top paired with the white trousers, it is conservative yet chic, Jessica Hart is totally rocking that sheer dress with black under garments and black pigalle pumps. The way Selena Gomez paired her sheer top and skirt with her heels was lovely , it is more risk than we're used to her taking but the actress looks lovely as always. In general all the ladies Rosie, Chiara, Mira Duma, etc. Are rocking the trend in these pictures. What do you guys think about the sheer trend ? YAY or NAY? xx- Steph

The Truth About It All: Peter Lik Art Gallery

Lik Gallery is. ... truly captivating. Just this past Saturday I was out for a stroll around town and happened to run into something quite unexpected. The Peter Lik Gallery is truly something I never thought  I'd run into, his landscape photography is truly breathtaking ranging from waterfalls, to the sun setting behind a tree somewhere in Africa. His work truly captures all the beauty nature has to give through the lens of the camera.  My first impression when walking into the gallery is something I'm not quite sure how to describe, I recall saying "This seems interesting, I haven't been inside a gallery in a while." After taking the first step inside the gallery I began to wander around to see what i would run into, after seeing the first three photos I continued to explore the gallery which is carefully arranged by first water shots, then sunset/sundown, followed by a few buildings here and there, and a historic shot that was so amazing it seemed like you were standing there (seen below). All of the photographs featured below some from the 2014 collection of photographs that are now being featured in each of his galleries, along with some other photographs from previous years, are all truly remarkable. I am now a fan of Peter Liks work. If you like photography and art going to a Peter Lik art gallery is totally worth the time.
