We have some serious style here, take notes for the summer: Extra thin sheer skirts under a masculine suit jacket.
I’m already on it.
Coming to love Kasseta Records, the small shop at Sofokleous street where one can find real treasures by music devotees who are willing to play anything on the spot. Latest additions in my tiny collection are Gerhard Heinz’s “Library music” and Dukes of Chutney’s “BIS 011″.
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.
Remember my visit at the Premiere boutique? Yesterday was the
the official Opening Day of this cute shop of Mimika Ciboyianni, where you are able to find not only her jewelry but also Lefteris Yiannikos winter collection. I deeply enjoyed the new bio beer “32″ – ideal for vegans, too- , Sweetheart cookies and a great mixtape my brother Panos did especially for the event. A perfect intro to the weekend I say.
All us girls below are wearing outfits of the two designers.
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!

I am VERY excited about this: Premiere boutique is the new it shop located at 22 Laodikis str. in Glyfada, of jewelry & accessories designer Mimika Ciboyianni. Apart from Mimika’s new collection of statement jewels and bags, you can also find some amazing pieces by fashion designer Lefteris Yiannikos -and many more to come as I was informed. I went a bit crazy with the clothes and here is my top selection (I’m obsessed with the deux pieces suits, the brocade skirt-shorts, the peplum belts and the new necklaces).
After its huge success last year, A.N.G.E.L.O vintage returned at Mcarthurglen Athens, with new vintage jewels that need to find a new home. If you ask me, I’d suggest to invest either on a great bag, which you can find in really good prices, or a nice coat – I think that the coats of A.N.G.E.L.O’s collection are pretty amazing, just take a look at the green leather patchwork below and the blue velvet cape. The Vintage Festival starts today, until the 3rd of November. The sooner you visit, the more you’ll get to discover.
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 “Britain’s 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”.
I wanted to get a denim pencil skirt this season so bad, only for one reason: to wear it with a classic men’s shirt. Boxy, slouchy, in light blue, open in front, perfect. During the #ArtOfDenim event at McArthurGlen I went straight ahead at Oxford Company and requested for a medium sized men’s shirt -didn’t even had to try it on. I paired it with a Replay pencil skirt with a flared detail on the back and a gold horn necklace with orange jade from Li-La-Lo. And voila!
More photos to follow.
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.
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,
