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 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.

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!

Lots to share

So that’s what’s new these days.

I’ll go pink for the winter (God forgive me) with a wool boyfriend coat from Marks&Spencer new collection, that hits the store of Ermou street on Thursday 26th. It’s oversized and I love it for that. In the same collection named Britains Leading Ladies”, I found a pair of leopard wedge booties, not very high/not too low. Soon to be mine, as well. For those who like it punked, a great part of the new Marks&Spencer line consists of leather jackets, tartan fabrics, leather skinny pants and british inspired motifs.

Moreover, I tried the new Ibuki skincare of the incomparable Shiseido. The name of it means “Fresh breath” and that is a promise made. The facial foam is the best I’ve ever tried, I swear. New obsessions: Shiseido lipstick PK303, Essie nail polish “For the twill of it”.

September’s treat: The fig sorbet I tried during my small getaway last weekend, for which I have plenty to share soon.

Ode to McCartney

This post is about a dress that gave me the chills when I first slipped in it and caresses my skin like the touch of an angel’s kiss. I can only talk about it with words of the heart and praise its beauty to eternity, for I have found love.

Stella’s the queen

I had been waiting too long for the time to arrive that this gorgeous Stella McCartney jumpsuit would come out of my closet. Especially bought a few months ago for my best friend’s wedding in Rome, this silk satin dream with cut-outs decorated with tiny oranges in baby blue color was created for me from the very beginning, although Stella ignores the trivia.

Pared with my Jil Sander sling-backs and sprinkled with some crystal-cluttering, when I slip in it I insistently refuse to take it of.

Red, again.

It’s that time of the year again, when I leave the dull color palette of my wardrobe behind and I make some attempts for vivid prints (blame it on April). The floral shirt is American Retro from Simple Caractere stores and that vibrant red you see on the lips is the result of Giorgio Armani Maestro lipstick, finished with the newest product of senior Armani, the Flash Lacquer lip gloss, which is non-sticky and stays between your lips -and won’t travel towards your nostrils, let’s say.

The pale pink snakeskin Gianvito Rossi pumps and the Juicy Couture bird ring is from the “Value for Style” event of Factory Outlet, where, admittedly, we found gorgeous pieces in unbelievable prices. The heart shaped street art is some romantic’s soul attempt to beautify the ugly graffitis of downtown Athens and the rest is just homemade garniture.

promise land

The new “Cranberry” lipstick by Amway, together with a piece of chocolate from Fresh that once had my name on, the Summer 2013 fuchsia Valentino sling-backs, the book I currently read which is Michel Houellebecq’s “The Platform”, my Jil Sander dream-come-true from Raf Simon’s very last collection for the house, the entire color palette of Korres summer nail polish , a long-desired collectible vinyl of my truest love, aka Arthur Russell from 1986 that I got from Discogs and the very new Nike Air Max that arrived in my mailbox,

is what turned those crappy days into domestic delight.
