Here you can se me enjoying the luxury of being taken care of by two of the best: Dimitris Sarantou did my -admittedly- gorgeous hair & make up and Yiorgos Kaplanidis took the photos of a special feature to be published soon. Something like a small teaser below, wearing leather Helmut Lang jumper and Pinko pencil skirt. But wait until you see the final cut.
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.
Four days are left for Dimitris Petrou highly anticipated fashion show and I had the pleasure to attend the private preview, which might have shown us nothing from the collection but yet, hairstylist Dimitris Sarantou (who will take care of the models hair for the catwalk), talked to us through all the high quality products of Moroccanoil and shared some hairstyle secrets. Plus, Essie was the there with all the new Fall/Winter colors -Dimitris Petrou chose “For the twill of it” for his presentaion, the green purple metallic color that makes your nails sparkle as a queen Μay beetle.
Every Wednesday during October I’ll be the guest editor at www.InStyle.gr, where I’ll be sharing several things that strike my fancy. I’m pretty good at it. Find the first post here:
I first visited Kinsterna boutique hotel when it opened its doors a couple of years ago, during a photoshoot for Vogue Hellas. Last week I payed another visit at this gem of Monemvasia, as a last summer call before we slip into our jumpers and boots and wait for fall (it’s not here yet, thank god). However, Kinsterna is ideal for autumn and winter excursions too, as its medieval architecture, its location up the hill and the rooms equipped with fireplaces, are more than inviting for a relaxing getaway. It is, also, privileged with a great garden and produces its own olive oil and wine, as well as other delicacies with seasonal goods. We tried a fig daquiri and some fig sorbet, both deliciously pure and fresh -it was amazing to watch the bartender walking towards the fig tree with a basket to cut some fruits for our drinks! The flowing water from the ancient stern is the absolute zen, and hotel’s restaurant offers some pretty good dishes, especially for dinner.
Wait, there’s more.
For the wine lovers, Kinsterna announced a tasting weekend between 4 and 6 of October, when Master of wine Constantinos Lazarakis will introduce the guests to the secrets of blind testing. You can find more about Kinsterna’s special offer here.
When I don’t mumble about all the things that go wrong around me, I work. And here is the proof. Below you can find the pages I did for Votre Beaute latest issue, out already, dedicated to fall’s earthy wardrobe, scottish tartans and british countryside.
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.
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 McCartney dress, L.A.M.B sandals, vintage ant necklace.
Right before my summer vacations I worked with a great British team for the new Wrap London look book (great cashmere jumpers and leather booties: noted), with world known photographer Nicole Nodland, starring super model Cassie Gardner. The shooting took place around Plaka and at the imposing Ypatia mansion.
Great new album by Michael Silver, the Canadian electronic musician aka CFCF.
That saxophone. Period.
