Hey April, what’s new

A pair of Soya Fish high sole sneakers, that’s what’s new. Very lightweight and comfortable, in an ice white color (I’m so in for the pink-gold Golf shoes, too). An everyday fix for sure.
“Ρomper Room” and “Find me an Oasis” are the new summer nail lacquers by Essie.
Hydrangea in pastel pink. 
Bio-Oil, the beauty essential that just arrived in Greece: A dry-oil miracle for special treatments, such as dehydrated skin, dark spots, scars etc. They promised me that my skin will look new in a couple of months so see you around June.
Enoe me “Double Arrow” golden cuff -check their silk pants, it’s the best thing you’ll try this summer.
Snaps from a19th century building in the heart of Athens, that after many decades will be revealed under new identity later on this year.

The kimono

Oh that kimono.
I’d been long waiting to obtain this graphic organza fringed masterpiece by V Society, one of the best pieces for summer and forever. I dreamed about throwing it over my bathing suit during the easy days of August, right before the sunset. But for now I opted for a rather evening look, over a soft long Humanoid dress, with a belt or maybe without.
One of a kind, right.

V Society eshop will launch in about a week, where the whole collection will be available to purchase.

In leather we trust

Madly in love with those V Society leather cropped pants in mint green. They might look a bit vintage but they’re so modern and fresh – I grow fonder everyday of this designer based in Glyfada, there’s not a single thing that I wouldn’t wear from her winter collection. Here paired with a sheer shirt and an off-white satin tuxedo jacket, both Les Petites. Snake skin sandals with chunky heels from Nak.




Dear V Society blue leather cropped top, It was about time we met.
I love your color, your flared sleeves, your fine material. You look great with my high-waisted pants, both denim and white. Promise you’ll never leave me.
Yours, truly.

Baby blue

The joy of a mini spring in the middle of January in this country every single year is a bliss. Inspiring, optimistic, energetic, heart warming sun for a week or so. My friend Katia Bololia had this idea of a post that would combine winter with summer, and that’s what I did. I couldn’t expect four more months to wear my angel-kissed Stella MacCartney dress and I definitely wanted to find the right match for my Carven coat (I was looking for a long time for the ideal coat and now I finally found it).
Made of thick wool, oversized, with round sleeves, in a dusty baby blue-light violet color.
In an ice-cold outfit a fuchsia neon add is more than welcome. Pierre Hardy leather clutch bag. Vintage soft leather blue gloves.

Oo la la! Dentelle!

I was long dreaming about this skirt and it’s finally home: A magnificent sheer black and nude piece with embroidered lace hem by DeuxHommes. I styled it in different ways and it looks gorgeous all the way.
The most daring combination would be with my vintage open back Alaia body but it also looks great over a lingerie dress with lace trim and a masculine suit jacket on top. I even tried it with an oversized boyfriend knitted jumper and guess what,
it still is drop dead beautiful.


Pre Xmas Warming Up

Getting ready for winter holidays with just the necessary (ok maybe not just the necessary).
Nothing gets me going more than some Christmas spirit or to be exact, alcohol spirit. So here comes Absolut Originalitythe new edition of Absolut vodka was created with a drop of ice blue color in every bottle, giving us for Christmas holidays 4 million unique Absolut bottles. Probably my favorite so far.

The feather white & black diamond ring is from the master of his kind, Mr. Nikos Koulis. The grey necklace and the turquoise pendant by Mimika Ciboyianni.

Korres presents two new eau de toilettes with pepper, for him and for her. I love pepper in perfumes. New additions from Moroccanoil, too: The styling gel and the glimmer shine for finishing. Your hair will look new, whatever that means. ysmf.nikos.koulis.feather.ringysmf.mimika.ciboyianni.grey.viktorglance.necklace

Wool and silk black & white top by Yiorgos Eleftheriades is my won’t-take-it-off top for this winter, along with that gorgeous pleated skirt by SOMF.

And for the finale, lucky charms for the new year: Round pendant by Utopia Elena K., evil eye by Gregio, lucky besom by Zeus + Dione.

The new year’s eve tux

My ideal outfit for a Christmas party consists of a fine tuxedo suit -with cropped pants, if possible- and a silk white shirt. Statement shoes are more than necessary. Τhis is my selection from a small place of wonders called Eponymo store at Mcarthurglen Athens. The well hidden romantic part of mine would go for the black delicate dress. As you well guessed a masculine tux and an ethereal silk frock are both parts of my split personality.

White silk shirt and black tuxedo suit jacket Alberta Ferretti. Black pants Paolo Petrone. Black chiffon dress Alberta Ferretti. Black peep toes Blumarine. Patent leather booties John Galliano. 

Extra info for mommies, aunts and godmothers: Mcarthurglen runs a Creative Workshop for children until the 31st of December -all in all a good chance to combine your Christmas shopping with children activity.

Raw Tailored

“Raw Tailored”, the G-Star Raw initiative together with Ozon magazine that offers the opportunity to customize and create your very own personalized G-Star denim, arrived in Athens on Wednesday at the new G-Star boutique at The Mall Athens, and I couldn’t miss the chance to watch live the procedure and also see my friends who either posed especially for the event or passed by to say hi.

Wish list

A walk at McArthurGlen Athens is never disappointing. I came across Carlo Pazolini shop where I found dozens of ultra elegant brogues and masculine mid-heel shoes that looked great with a Pierre Balmain double breasted jacket I saw later at Alberta Ferretti. Note to reader: At Alberta Ferretti you can also find incredible stuff of other fashion houses such as Dsquared2, John Galliano, Red Valentino and more. I’m making my Christmas wish list and shoes has always been my starting point. Now I can delightfully add a Dsquared2 gown and that gorgeous Pierre Balmain jacket.

If you’re planning to pay a visit at McArthurGlen keep in mind the big celebration on Friday November 15th, when the Christmas tree will be lit!
