A day in Verona part II

IMG_9628

Nothing a little monochrome can’t fix.

Piece of cake easy (and equally good), black and white is the go to solution when you ‘re in a hurry (case in point, we only had half hour intervals if we wanted to catch stuff (ie lunch, male models, the flight and so on) so there was no room for extra thinking, styling wise.

Easy on the eyes and versatile as well, I only had to wrap my b&w plaid scarf around my neck during the flight. And I did think of changing into high heels and going out for drinks after we landed (the thought passed away quickly).

Calzedonia Show

I can only give you a glimpse of what the #Calzedoniashow is all about.  The videos don’t do it justice, the photos can’t even begin to show the atmosphere and all the talk is just talk.

We were seated (more like transported) in an underwater scene, water splashing through giant video walls, loud music and gorgeous attendees (I was lucky enough to be selected as this years international fashion blogger for Greece) until Sara Sampaio opened the show. And everything stopped for a second.

Crazy beautiful swimsuits (my shopping list just got a whole lot longer, thank you Calzedonia) and even more gorgeous models strutting playfully. As for the boys, the yelling and “marry mes” will give you a hint of how good they were (SIGH).

Already anticipating the next one.

Grazie Calzedonia!

A day in Verona part I

IMG_9410

4 flights, 1 amazing swimwear fashion show and just 1 Venchi gelato later, I am back from Verona, suitcase full plus 1 new hot Calzedonia bikini and a whole lot of Kiko goodness (I always stock up when I visit Italy). Super tired but equally happy.

We only had a few hours to explore the pretty as a picture little city and of course wasted it in selfies and shopping. How typical. We familiarized ourselves with colorful walls and stylish passer bys and before we knew it, it was all over.

Post with fashion show models to follow.

Making pizza tonight, in honor of the Italian trip ( I also have the runway video on repeat, fyi).

Avant Garde

IMG_9288

The suit is one of those powerful wardrobe staples that will come in handy. At numerous occasions. I bought mine (my first of many that is) out of need, meaning I literally had to. Back in my Bristol Myers Squibb days when I was discussing cancer more than well, anything else, oncology and hematology being the most frequently used words in my vocabulary (you see I did try to save the world for a while) and the bio pharmaceutical company uniform was obligatory.

Anyway, the thing is you can get away with anything in a suit.

Plus the boys LOVE it.

Can’t wait for Saturday

It might -still- be Monday but I really can’t wait for Saturday. Well, ok, that’s not something new but this time I can’t wait even MORE.

What’s happening then? Hmmm.

You are gonna have a first look at Alexandra Katsaiti’s new AlexSANDra on the beach Collection, which as you can imagine is full of color, pom poms, feminine bustiers and pin up shorts, girly lace and “look at me” embellishments. From see through pants to post-beach kaftans, Alexandra has thought of everything (yes, even sunnies) and we’ll be waiting for you to check everything out and tell us what you think.

So prepare for a Saturday full of styling tips, mix n match outfits, colorful ideas, the uber stylist herself (Alexandra is an instant mood fixer) and everything else that will happen and is not planned. ;)

Sponsored by everyone’s favorite softener, Lenor.

We are waiting for you.

This Saturday 12/4 City Link, Athens from 12 to 4.

Swimsuit season is on

IMG_9167

Nothing will ever compare to the pleasure extraordinaire of having a white sand/turquoise water beach ALL to yourself. Sun, sea, (almost) summer and everything wrong turns right. Even if it’s just for a couple of pleasurable hours walking barefoot next to seagull footprints and listening to the sound of waves splashing.  And nothing else.

We’ll always have Greece.

#Favorites

1. Cut offs cause there ain’t no summer without them

2. A Zara jumper cause we all need some embellishment in our lives

3. Apivita royal jelly masks cause they work wonders

4. Gold sneakers cause they are sizzlin’

5. A transparent clutch cause we got nothin to hide

6. Lenor softener cause it takes good care of our favorite clothes

7. Unique jewelry cause they make any outfit stand out

8. Straw hat cause it’s as pretty as necessary

9. Bio – oil cause it has a ton of uses

10. Tortoise sunglasses cause sometimes you need to hide your stare

I think you’ve all figured out by now how much I love clothes, so it won’t be hard to guess how important it is for me to take good care of them. And since I tried the whole range of Lenor softeners my mind is at peace and my closet is safe.

My super stylish (and gorgeous) ally for this mission is no other than celeb stylist Alexandra Katsaiti with whom we are preparing a fab surprise for all of you. So join forces with us, stay tuned and prepare to learn a whole lot about styling and how to properly take care of your favorite garments.

Get ready.

And since you asked about the clothes I’m wearing, in the 1st episode, my asymmetric floral dress is H&M (similar here), paired with combat boots, while in the 2nd, I chose my leather look Sugarfree pants (similar here), a baby blue blazer, white H&M wedges and a white top

Straight into Spring

IMG_8800

When sweaters give way to t-shirts, pumps to flip flops and espadrilles, fur jackets go into hibernation and shorts become shorter (like I needed an excuse). Tea turns ice cold and the e-shopping for swimsuits hectic. Being a Spring child and all, this is when I feel my happiest, a case easily evident on my blossoming wardrobe. So expect LOTS of color, tons of crop tops and ALL smiles (yes, there is still room for more).

YAY for Spring

Too Pure To Be Pink

But still trying.

Beautiful #DenimDays in the middle of March, crazy busy but blooming. Feeling in love with pretty much everything right now and things are only gonna get worse (how many butterfies can fit in one little stomach?). My favorite month is just around the corner and it’s always full of surprises. Time flies and I’m already missing the now. So (note to self), take a step back, eat slowly, think less and enjoy every-single-thing.

In fine: stop and smell the roses (and every other flower that comes your way).

Especially the pink ones.
