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.
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, whichis 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.
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.
Following the first post of my visit at Lanvin headquarters, here comes the second part that includes almost all the accessories from the Lanvin Summer 2013 collection. Python pumps in metallics, gorgeous shoulder bags and tiny minaudieres and the famous Lanvin crystal jewels. Knock yourselves out.
For the new Spring-Summer 2013 collection, Christian Louboutin asked again Peter Lippmann to shoot the lookbook images. The inspiration this time is «fishing men» and the images are a realistic staging of Peter Lippmann’s idea.
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.
Riccardo Tisci introduces printed paisley motifs, across a variety of Givenchy’s men’s clothes and accessories.A bold version contrasts white and green whilst another appears in vintage army aircrafts intertwined in coloured kakhi paisley.
“This season Riccardo Tisci presents an ankle shoe merging the details and the ergonomics of a high-top trainer with the characteristics of an oxford shoe. The idea morphs a basketball playground sneaker with an Italian gangster’s brogue.”
And that says almost everything about the new men shoes of Givenchy for next Fall!
I haven’t got myself a pair of All Stars since I was 13, till now, that Converse game the best hand-painted All Star ever. During the “Just Add Color” event last week at the Converse Pop-Up Store, all I had to do was to choose my favorite color and the artists did the rest!
