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.

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

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

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!

Winter dressing. 

In my book that means beanies, turtlenecks, the occasional oversized fur and BOOTS. Make them thigh high and I’m willing to withstand below 30 Celsius for another 3 months (I’m talking maximums here). All black and a hint of pink to break the ice (literally), I’m contemplating skiing, hot cocoa with marshmallows and endless procrastinating over a million glossy glossies.

I’m officially cold. 

Wearing a pair of Sante Shoes thigh high peep toe boots, beanie Jumbo (a SAINT version here), suede leather shorts, black cotton turtleneck

Daring Purple & Orange

I mean, why not?

Colorblocking my way into winter is the funnest shortcut I could think of to try and forget all those palm trees and eternal sunshine of La La Land. Mixing up colours makes up my mood in no time but basically I did need a good excuse to wear that statement coat. I know, I know it could have probably been better with black cigarette pants and a crisp white shirt (new outfit post coming up perhaps?) but running around in those Freestyle vintage Reeboks and my vibrant attire was equally satisfying. And attention grabbing. Thank god the wasps and bugs were in hibernation.

But playing dress up never hurts, right?

Wearing orange coat Asos, purple sweater H&M (a nice alternative with cat elbow patch here), ripped jeans, Freestyle Hi Reebok sneakers

Denim Days

Denim Days

Listening to MOTHXR’s Stranger on repeat, my mind being totally absent (from all the things I’ve lost I miss my mind the most), participating in a shopping detox (I haven’t yet unpacked everything, imagine that), catching up on my favourite shows and what nots and sweating my A** off on the treadmill. After all I did buy 5 new pairs of sneakers in LA. I might as well put them into good use. So I’m taking some ME time and I urge you to do the same from time to time.

It feels good.

(Plus I have a couple of surprises in store :)) 

Wearing Denim Dress H&M, Suede Lace Up Boots Michael Kors (similar here and a flat alternative here), Faux Fur Snood (and here), Lulu Frost Eye Necklace (I also love this one here)IMG_7038IMG_7102 IMG_7085 IMG_7060 IMG_7091 IMG_7053 IMG_7047 IMG_7093

I scream. For Ice Cream.

IMG_6633

I SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM.

I actually scream for many reasons ice cream being a prominent one. I guess it’s a childhood remnant of when my dad used to bite off half of my popsicle claiming to be IRS.

Imagine my distress.

From then on and with my shrinks appraisal, I do not let anyone anywhere near my melting property.

I wish I was giving ice cream away (and I very well might at some point so stay tuned), instead I’m giving you a how-to-copy-the-look with this sweater (mine is from H&M), ankle grazer skinny jeans, fringed boots Pinko (a flat version here), military hat bought in Russia, Asos bucket bag, faux fur leopard coat Pull & Bear

Lickable.
