Summer Lookbook 2013

[more…]

Hello my lovely scarlets, how have you been? Did you go on vacation? I did and it was so nice. I spent my summer holidays at Chania, as most summers of my life (I was born there also) and had an a
mazing time. I managed to film a few outfits so I made a video on my youtube channel for you to see. I have a few photos as
well, which I will post here and I’d love it if you would
see the video and tell me what you think about the outfits.

Γειά σας scarlets μου, τι κάνετε; Πήγατε διακοπούλες; Εγώ πήγα και ήταν τόσο ωραία. Έκανα τις διακοπές μου στα Χανια, όπως τα περισσότερα καλοκαίρια της ζωής μου (επίσης έχω γεννηθεί εκεί) και πέρασα εξαιρετικά. Κατάφερα να βιντεοσκοπήσω μερικά outfits και έφτιαξα ένα βίντεο για το κανάλι μου στο youtube. Έχω και μερικές φωτογραφίες, τις οποίες θα ποστάρω εδώ, αλλά θα ήθελα πολύ να δείτε το βίντεο και να μου πείτε τη γνώμη σας για τα outfits.

This is the 4rth look on my lookbook and it’s my favorite. I love this car and I wish it was mine! But remember this: don’t be surprised if someday you see me strolling the streets w
ith a classic beauty like this. It’s my dream to buy a classic vintage car, even older than this one (which is a 1973 Triumph MK3) and I believe I will….someday!
Αυτό είναι το 4ο look στο lookbook μου και είναι το αγαπημένο μου. Λατρεύω αυτό το αυτοκίνητο και θα ήθελα πολύ να είναι δικό μου! Αλλά να θυμάστε αυτό: μην παραξενευτείτε αν κάποια μέρα με δείτε να κυκ
λοφορώ με ένα κλασικό κομμάτι σαν αυτό. Είναι το όνειρό μου να αγοράσω ένα κλασικό vintage αυτοκίν
ητο, ακόμα πιο παλιό από αυτό (το οποίο είναι ένα Triumph MK3 του 1973) και πιστεύω οτι θα το καταφέρω…κάποτε!

Athens Xclusive Designers Week – My outfits!

[more…]

I know I should have made these last posts earlier in the week, but a mean cold had me feeling awful for the past few days. Well, better late than never…

I only went to the AXDW on Days 1 and 3, but I had a great time and it gave me the chance to meet some new people and catch up with others that I hadn’t seen in a while.

Outfit-wise I went for mostly blacks on both occasions. I guess my work dress code is starting to influence my whole wardrobe (I work for MAC and the dress code is “all black”!).  But you can never go wrong with black, can you?! 

My make up is of course all MAC, but I honestly can’t remember what eyeshadows and lipstick I wore in the first outfit. In the second, I used Print and Carbon eyeshadows lightly blended to create a soft smokey eye, and Impassioned lipstick with Boldly bare lip liner.

1st day outfit:
(Dress: Moschino, Shoes: Brian Atwood, Bag: Vintage, Pendant: Vintage) 
 
3rd day outfit:
 
(T-shirt: Vintage, Leather skirt: Vintage, Pumps: Zara, Cross: random shop)

Absolut Mode Nights – Greek Fashion Designers Project: Stelios Koudounaris

Thursday night, ABSOLUT Vodka in conjuction with three Greek fashion designers, Stelios Koudounaris, Sotiris Georgiou and Digitaria, presented a fashion event at Dream City club in Athens. The occasion being the launch of ABSOLUT’s limited edition bottle “Absolut Mode”, the three designers presented parts of their collections through the reflections of Absolut Mode. It was a multimedia fashion performance, staged by Memi Koupa under the DJ’s Apostolos Mitropoulos chosen tunes.

Due to picture overload, I’ve split the post in two parts. 
I will start by Stelios Koudounaris collection, which impressed me once again. I loved all the dresses and the way they were presented. The models started with the usual walk down the runway (but in a rather fast pace) and at the end they all appeared wearing the beautiful maxi see-through dress and carrying roughly-cut mirrors in their hands, which they waved in front of all of us. It was very impressive as the mirrors reflected the spot lights and various images from the audience and the models. 

I LOVE this dress!!!

Gorgeous jacket!!!

Mac did the make up for this fashion event (and my make up is also all Mac!). 
Stay tuned for the second part with the rest of the designers…

Fashion week outfit

These past 2 weeks have been quite busy fashion wise, but it’s been fun. I couldn’t make it to all shows, but at least I watched some that I really enjoyed. 
This the outfit that I wore on the last day of Athens Fashion Week. What do you think about my new Giuseppe Zanotti boots? (and I quote Rachel Zoe) I diiiiiiieeeeee!!!

Lets stretch her legs (my new Canon 40D)

Last week I finally got something that has been on my wish list for quite some time: a DSLR! It’s an older model, so it was used, but in mint condition. I haven’t had the chance to play with it the past few days, but today my brother and I went to Gazi in Athens and gave my new camera a try. I admit that it takes a lot of practicing to get a decent shot and it really helps having someone to show you the tricks.
I also found a manual of the Canon 40D on youtube, which was really helpful.
If you do buy a DSLR and have no idea how to use it, don’t worry, there is a lot of information online. My advice though, is to set it in Manual mode, because the whole point of getting a DSLR is to learn how to take good quality pictures!
(The photos of me were taken by my brother. the rest of the photos and the editing are by me)

(Vest: Bershka, Top: from random shop, Palazzo pants: ProdigyRed, Shoes: Adidas, Bag: Zara, Sunglasses: Rayban, Bracelts: H&M, DIY chain, DIY charm bracelet, Vintage silver bracelets)




Tomorrow it’s the FNO in Athens. Is anyone going? If yes, leave me a comment or email me and maybe we could meet up. 

I think I’ll wear my new ASOS dress and bag with a pair of nude lace up booties (unless I change my mind at the last minute!). What are you planning on wearing (for my Greek friends) or what did you wear at the FNO (for my international friends)?
