Christmas tree decorating with my vintage friends!

My outfit (skirt and top) is from The Weekend Doll

Hello lovelies,

When I wrote my last post the weather was still warm. Now it’s getting cold outside and it’s December so Christmas is coming…
So when I was invited to a Christmas tree decorating event at Madame Gateaux, I was super excited! I’ve shown you her beautiful tea room and truth is I can’t get enough of that place! Especially when I’m spending a lovely afternoon with my vintage friends Kalliopi (Madame Gateaux) and Viveta (La Cocote Athens).

We did some tree decorating, but we mostly did a lot of laughing and drinking! Yes, even though I’m not a drinker, I really enjoyed that Bosford Rosé Gin. Mixed with tonic and served with fresh strawberries and raspberries and a twig of rosemary….it was delicious!
And that pink color makes it so girly and retro. I think I have found my favorite drink!

And of course we didn’t leave empty handed… There were three beautiful gift bags waiting for us under the tree, one for each of us. Filled with Molton Brown goodies!
I think I picked the best one, because I got the Muddled Plum candle and the Eau de Toilette. They both smell sweet and yummy! And the packaging is very luxurious and festive…

I wish you all a very happy Christmas time and I hope the new year will bring us everything our hearts desire!

Sweet like ice cream!

Dress: Vivien of Holloway
Shoes: Zara (old)
Hair flower: Midcentury Market in Camden

Hello lovelies,

This is my second Vivien of Holloway dress and I adore it! (You saw a similar here) As soon as I saw the colour and the print I thought of Ice cream, cotton candy and all types of sweets in a candy store! So I went to do this shoot at a favorite spot in Athens, Zuccherino! There, you can find delicious desserts and ice cream and there’s choices for Vegans like me, otherwise I wouldn’t go to be honest!

I’m proud to say I own quite a few items from VOH and I love every single one of them. I can’t wait to also show you my winter items that I got last March when I visited their store in London… 😉

By the way, my ice cream flavors were Melon and Blueberry (with chunks of dark choc)! Yumm!!!!

“Something’s got to give” inspired dress

Dress: Dolly and Dotty
Sunglasses: Retrosexual Vintage Shop
Shoes: Zara (old)
Bag: MCM (old)

Hello lovelies,

The minute I saw this dress on the Dolly and Dotty site, I was drawn to it! I thought it was so pretty and very feminine. And it reminded me of something, but wasn’t sure what. And then I saw yet another documentary about Marilyn Monroe (I’m a huge fan in case you didn’t know!), and there it was. The dress that she wore in her last ever film, “Something’s got to give”! Unfortunately that film never screened, because she died before finishing it…
So I’m subconsciously drawn to anything that reminds me of Marilyn, and how could I not be? She always wore the most beautiful outfits!

I finally did a shoot for this dress and I did get a lot of compliments for it. The fabric is shiny and soft and it has the perfect fit, accentuating my curves. And that back….is oh so pretty!

Vintage inspired make up!

My Dress: Vivien of Holloway
Shoes: Zara (old)

Hey lovelies,

I haven’t posted in a while, some of you probably know why… But anyways, this is a happy post! I did Kalliopi’s make up (aka Madame Gateaux) and she also interviewed me about vintage makeup and we had a blast!

I can talk for hours about the history of make up and fashion and especially with Kalliopi, as she’s a also a fan of the 1950’s like I am. So, she made us a very refreshing nectarine iced tea and I did her make up, while chatting about Hollywood starts and their beauty secrets and so on…

You can read all about it on her blog Madame Gateaux (if you understand Greek that is) or you can just enjoy more beautiful pics! Also, have a look here at my post about her unique Vintage themed tea parties!

London photoshoot (part 2)

Top: Top Vintage
Trousers: Top Vintage
Shoes: Top Vintage
Bag: Top Vintage
Earrings: Top Vintage

Hey lovelies, I hope you read my previous post about my London photoshoot. This is part 2, with a slight difference to the outfit and a different setting. Still around London Tower and the London bridge. Please do check here my reviews on the beautiful trousers and shoes and also the bag. Here you see me wearing a striped top, that is very flattering and I’m going to enjoy wearing it this spring! I love everything nautical, maybe because I’m a Naval Officer’s daughter! 😉

The earrings are gorgeous! The perfect shade of red and with that classic Bakelite look and beautiful carvings…
