Shooting a bunch of Intimissimi goodies, on a semi dusky weekday, a casa mia, with boy wonder Mike Tsitas and the company of 2 dogs and a LARGE pack of chili nachos.

This is just part I (and I don’t just mean the apparel). We continued our feast with pizzas both savoury and sweet (that nutella mascarpone recipe is a must try), cause taking pictures is just so calorie consuming. :)

Socks throughout Calzedonia, lingerie throughout Intimissimi, leather jacket and grey cropped sweater Zara (similar here), boyfriend jeans Topshop, boots YSL, oversized denim jacket bought at the flea market on Melrose

It’s that time of the year.

It’s that time of the year. Again.

Endless eating (cause it’s Christmas), limitless shopping (cause it’s Christmas), neverending happy mood (you guessed that right, cause it’s Christmas).

I’ll take it. Especially when the last two happen to take place at my favourite bargain shopping destination aka Factory Outlet together with good coworkers turned friends and “have to have them now” sale pieces!

Went there to find something cute but fancy for the New Years party and ended up with everything AND the dress.

But it’s Christmas and I’m worth it. And they were all on discount.

Who can blame me?

#HAPPYNEWWEAR TO ALL!

Cats & Dogs

IMG_8743

There ain’t no animal I met and did not like and I did (try to) pet them all. Some were willing, some (I guess) not. It’s just that I grew up with dogs always being around (and ON the beds) and although I was bitten a couple of times, I can’t love these creatures enough.

Lately and thanks to certain girlfriends I spend too much time with (you know who you are, both of you), I progressed from a dog person to a cat lady. And now I am both.

I only find comfort in my alter ego Elmyra Duff who understands.

Check this video here to feel me.

No animals were harmed during this blog post by the way.

Chiara Ferragni in Athens

110662-IMG_7661

Madame Figaro turned 20 and threw a hell of a party. 

We celebrated in style with #GLitterEverywhere and got to meet and greet the one and only Chiara Ferragni who up close and personal is super sweet and ultra gorgeous. We chit chatted about LA and constant traveling and played peek a boo during her photoshoot for Madame Figaro the day after.

Mike Tsitas got to take some bff pics but mostly our phones did the capturing cause its an insta life after all.

Check out my Q&A for #MadameFigaro20 here and what we all wore to the red carpet here.

Happy BDAY Madame Figaro, may we always party like this!

Party outfit: Dress River Island (a simpler version here), Shoes Asos, Clutch Folli Follie

Casual outfit: Topman tshirt “You know you want to tweet me”, Denim Skirt Asos, Boots Zara (a velvet alternative here)

I’m crazy for you Nowles

unnamed-1

OK, I’m DYING to recreate this outfit, these Isabel Marant booties are the bomb.

Super wintery, with a comfy and warm shearling lining, they come with two different pairs of laces (beige and red) and a hidden 20mm wedge -of course. Isabel knows how to flatter the cool girls silhouette.

They go with pretty much everything, from jeans and leggings to sweats and even dresses (they are actually not bulky at all) and are the perfect addition to any cold weather attire.

Get them here before they’re gone HERE.

I think I found my Xmas gift. :Disabel-marant

And after all you’re my wonderwall

IMG_8294

Keepin’ it causal and super relaxed during those hectic December days, with Chiara Ferragni visiting Athens for a couple of days (she is SO sweet), parties, photoshoots, meetings and so on. Nothing more trustworthy than a pair of leather leggings (they are so slimming aren’t, they?), a loose sweater and a moto jacket. Adding a faux fur scarf to the mix can only make things better and truth be told a touch of vibrant pink never hurts.

Stay rad gals!

PS: I’m sure you know by now that I keep my Stan Smiths in the car ;)

I LIVE FOR ME

_MG_0973

What a great honor to be part of this campaign that benefits cancer awareness!

Alongside a selected group of Greek fashion bloggers and actress Tonia Sotiropoulou we posed in front of Yannis Bournias lens to showcase Folli Follie‘s limited edition charity bracelet.

This year the bracelet is made of brown leather with pink gold colored metal elements and part of the proceeds will go to the non profit organization I LIVE FOR ME that benefits cancer and chronic disease patients. The bracelet costs 60 euros and is available through mid December in all Folli Follie stores and online at www.follifollie.gr

Isn’t it the perfect (Christmas) gift or what?

Let’s all wear this and support this really good cause.

Let’s live for us.

The End

IMG_8448

The end of a love affair, the end of an era, the end of the world (I DO believe you Fox Mulder).

All good things come to an end but life goes on. The sooner we realise, the better. There’s no time for regret, looking back and worrying too much. After all life IS short and we have to make the best of it.

Long story short, if you love your fries, eat them (or get a pommes frites covered laptop sleeve instead).

What I’m wearing: my favourite New Balance sneakers, a cropped sweater from Brandy Melville, a faux fur scarf, a ruffled skirt from Zara, a crystal earcuff from F21, a fries laptop case from Tiger

Are we proper yet?

IMG_8082

Not so while ago, I was almost exclusively dressed in ripped denim shorts, sandals and cropped tops. Aka the essentials.

This is a very (well if I might add) dressed me, a rare sighting that I enjoy as much as I do wildlife documentaries. So take a good look cause it’s not gonna last long.

I will probably be internally forced to go out braving lingerie underneath a see through top or an unbuttoned shirt (it’s a huge trend after all -> check this pic here) to make up for all that proper clothing burden.

Gosh.

Do it like the Parisians with a pair of white culottes (a silk version here), a black fitted sweater, a statement beige coat, a red hat, these Tsakiris Mallas boots and a vintage bag

Cat Love

IMG_8151

Catnip doesn’t only get cats high.

I hope my dogs will not be seeing this.

If you are it was really not my fault, I was literally surrounded by 20 cats (many of them black), all of them high on catnip and left me no choice but to pet them (I was basically abused). I am in no way a cat person and I will not do this again.

It was the catnip.

I am bringing beef sticks.
