28 °C and counting

While packing my beach bag initiating the summer season, two things are in my mind:
New bathing suits and suncare. Latest obsessions are no other than the bikini and tea-cup swimsuit by Paolita coming straight from the 50s, though I wouldn’t say no to the crochet beach dresses either, from the same collection.
Apart from my facial sun protection throughout the year, my pochette also includes L’Oreal Paris Sublime Sun protection milk for golden tan SPF20, L’oreal Elvive dry hair oil (how could I pull through the summer without a hair oil?) and the Radical hair gel for a much needed natural wavy hair look.

Last ten days were about:
A soft light blue-grey silk dress by V Society (damn I love this color).
Black high heel suede sandals by Sante that popped through my door the other day.
“Charnieres” gold and diamond drop earrings and cuffs by the ever so talented Yannis Sergakis. In love with them is an understatement.
My whole house smells of rose. Rose Soaps and Rose scented wax soapdish by Santa Maria di Novella, one of the most ancient pharmaceutical workshops in Florence that produces enchanting soaps and perfumes since the 16th century. Exclusively at El.Marnieri gallery.
Mariah’s final recording “Utakata no Hibi” (1983), one of those albums to be on my Top 5 list for life.
Handmade easter eggs as usual, and a small getaway to catch up on lost sleep.

Sotiris Georgiou Summer 2014

“Complexity is Simplicity” is the name of the Spring-Summer 2014 collection of Sotiris Georgiou, aiming to state a game based on fashion maths. Adding and subtracting on the same garment. The balance between all the information gathered, minus the minimal frame. Clustered pleats fold and unfold in monochrome, a busy front equals a quiet back and vise versa.

I tried on all my favorite pieces  and if it was in mind hand, I’d wear the men collection too.

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.
