dark amber

Definitely one of the best nights of Christmas holidays till now:

Dinner chez monsieur Pandos was a combination of ingenuous elegance, great food, outrageous late

night tales and hysterical laughs. I had missed that.

unplugged in the denimland

The ultimate denim brands, Lee & Wrangler, celebrated their first shop up north at The Mall Athens with a small gathering for just a few and an unplugged live session with Nalyssa Green, who by the way, is the sweetest singer I’ve met. A rather fresh and conceptual invitation, that, as they promised, it will be repeated in the future with more live performances in the Denimland.

Into the Fashion Wonderland

A big fancy fairy-tale party was the way that Fashion Workshop by Vicky Kaya chose to celebrate Christmas and the big success of its blogzine www.intothefashionworkshop.com, in which I have the honor and pleasure to participate.

The decoration and dresscode was inspired by Tim Walker’s photoshoots and Tim Burton’s dark movies,

so this left the guests with some freedom regarding their attire.

Vicky was a fabulous hostess, Catherine Baba was also there as the guest of honor invited especially for the party, beautiful people and fever music  -definitely a great party.

fancy wish list

I was recently asked by missbloom.gr, among other girls, to present my Christmas essentials. Since my wardrobe palette is rather boring with lots of blacks and blues, I usually add some color with my accessories, mainly shoes and jewelry. Pointy shoes, crystals and some luxury goodies like my Serge Lutens perfume or a good facial day creme is what got on my list.
I now take it a step further and make a xmas wish list.

This Stella McCartney light blue shirt dress is on top of my wish list, together with a pair of Jil Sander color-block sling backs, that I instantly fell in love with when we first met in March at Raf Simon’s very last fashion show for the house.

I love luxury paper. I keep collecting personal stationary since the age of 6. I also love birds. Can I ask Santa for this Bird Box by Bernard Maisner

It includes post cards and statement cards with hand painted exotic birds *sigh* by Mr. Maisner himself.

Shourouk crystal necklace.

The finest make up of them all, Giorgio Armani’s Maestro miracle.

And a man pouch -I often prefer men’s clothes and accessories- from Lanvin.

And maybe for the new year I’ll try something new: Not Another Bill promises a gift every month in my mailbox!

I’m a fool for breakdance since ever and after those videos I want
to marry Mounir and invite Jabbawockeez to dance at my wedding party.

Cocteles y Xmas, almost de Cuba

It’s nice to feel an 8 year-old  every now and then, plus allowed to have alcohol on top of that. It was really fun making my own Christmas ornaments last night at TGI Fridays, together with my girlfriends and the new Havana-inspired cocktails, with three different types of Havana rum and lots of fantasy. All thanks to Valia of value.com.

Konstantinos Kakanias, Greece is for lovers and Yorgos Mazonakis did their own version each and all three “Mr. Bones” were auctioned last night at Rebecca Camhi gallery, for  the non-profit organization “Merimna”. Greece is for Lovers used blue glass eye charms, the well-known greek traditional talisman, where Yorgos Mazonakis did a Tsolias version of Mr. Bones.

Unique Edition Night Out

Colorsplash, familiar faces, a live performance by Marina Satti and a zillion Absolut Unique Edition bottles (from which, one came home with me) at last night’s Absolut party.

By the way , may I say that the Unique Edition is the best creative of Absolut so far -statement coming from a pure Absolut fanatic.
