Downtown Athens, 01.17.15

IMG_0391

I am a sucker for the tiniest bit of colorful art and Downtown Athens is full of it. Put one and one together and voilà, you can always find me in front of a vibrant graffiti or a kaleidoscopic drawing.

I am also a sucker for bomber jackets, the more Grease-like the better. So this brand new H&M lilac piece was a very welcome addition to my closet, that I plan on wearing a lot. Purple tones are apparently having a comeback so get your lavender s*it together before its too late.

Mauve painted nails get extra points.

Wearing bomber jacket H&M (an embellished version here, a baseball version here), sleeveless knit Zara, jeans H&M, Dunk SKY sneakers Nike, pearl headband Zara (on sale), leather bag Reiss (a nice alternative here)

Walking Rainbow

IMG_0187

A friend of mine told me I should dress in all black.

This is my answer. 

Rainbow yeti spotted in downtown Athens, taking pictures of anything combining more than 3 colors, seeing everything pink (like the rest 6 days of the week) and enjoying THAT Greek sun (magic country much?). Did a little bit of shopping too to help with the mood cramps. ;)

It worked.

Wearing this (pretty awesome) Asos faux fur, skinny jeans, Pull & Bear fringed leather sneakers (a similar white version here), Wildfox mirrored sunglasses, long sweater, Unicorn iPhone case

Fighting Falcon 16

You know you’re fly when you watch action movies and daydream about being an Air Force pilot. You know you’re superfly when you manage to buy a vintage F16 yourself and casually park it on your front lawn. For everyone to see.

Being nowhere near fly or superfly myself, the least I could do was take a bunch of pics and go back to watching Top Gun.

Mission Accomplished.

Wearing a leopard faux fur from Topshop (similar here and here), G Star Raw sweater, boyfriend jeans, Adidas Superstar sneakers, Asos flower sunglasses (that you can easily DIY) IMG_9543IMG_9524 IMG_9509IMG_9525 downloadIMG_9528 10891523_1006008009412966_551343545025077037_n

Take me to church

Those rays of light. 

Making everything better.

On cold winter days, like this one, they keep me warmer than this heavily knitted sweater. They bring me closer to new adventures (imaginary and not), they make new beginnings easier, they provide comfort while I deal with dead ends, they make everything clear.

In good ol’ vitamin D we trust.

Amen.

Wearing oversized sweater, brown shorts, thigh high fringed leather boots Sam Edelman (similar here), faux fur bag Accessorize, sunglasses E&E

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.

Sweater H&M (a cropped version here), slip dress worn as skirt Urban Outfitters, boots, rings Folli Follie, harness belt Asos, dogs and cats stray

I’m crazy for you Nowles

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 ;)

Wearing leather jacket Zara, grey sweater and leggings H&M, faux fur scarf, Isabel Marant for H&M fringed leather boots (a really cool option here), handmade clutch, Dita sunglasses (a tortoise alternative here)

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

University of Southern California

IMG_7785

The one thing I do regret in my life is not enrolling at USC when the time was right (sorry UCLA, I do love you, too). Visiting the campus in the heart of downtown LA (at night AND pretty illegally I must confess) I was drawn to all that opportunity and that “SKULLS” vibe that is evident everywhere. I sneaked in the stadium, I chased a drunken opossum and learned the tale of how the alumni celebrate their graduation by climbing all (and there are many) the fountains located in the campus.

And since I’ve had my fair share of academic studying (and biology was not easy) I can only listen in ecstasy all those USC stories my friends kept telling over outdoor fires, eating marshmallows from sticks and just being a proud imposter by wearing my fave USC tee.

Go Trojans!

Yellow hat, fringed leather jacket, ripped denim, leather boots, USC tee
