The snow white (and other fairytales).

Finally! It's snowing. We can now feel the winter and that old forgotten xmas spirit. And while getting ready for a walk in the snow dreaming of that delicious warm coffee that's waiting in the cafeteria, I was thinking that jackets and anoraks are necessary at last. 
Stay warm people!

This is my snow white vest-jacket with a little fur on the hood, bought from zara many years ago.

My gray anorak from badila.

And this is my brown jacket with a lovely furry hood, bought from bershka a few years ago.

Dress for success.

Success is a lot of things. And it has a different meaning to each and every one of us. For some people success is a beautiful family. For others it's a great career. And for those like us that have nothing of those things at the time, success is enjoying every single day. And how can we enjoy our days, without the proper dress? Here are two of my favorite ones.

And this tiny dress is Kyvelie's (3 years old) xmas present. I bought it from mini heel and I can't wait to give to her on xmas day!

I usually wear this purple silk dress (from sava I think) with jeans and my blue cowboy boots from bata.

An autumn fairytale with a different ending.

Today is the last day of November. It's the last day of autumn actually. An autumn full of spring. So I'm showing you a different ending to the fairytale (paramita) I posted on October 19th, "Autumn, my cousin's ex girlfriend." I wear that paramita skirt I bought from beautiful Barcelona 3 years ago with different tops and different boots. 
And then, I wear that heel strange blouse with black leggings, instead of jeans. 

And that's because every fairytale has always an alternative ending. And this autumn wants to ...spring it on!

And this is my fake Bulgari little barrel necklace.

Flowers blossom in winter.

It's the middle of November and there's nothing but sun in the sky. Swedish people would say that this is heavenly, but here in Greece we know that's not normal. We love all seasons and want to experience them as much as we can. 

We like singing in the rain. We're dreaming of a white xmas. We want to shout that the dark days are gone, and the bright days are here. And we wanna lay down on a bed of roses. The only thing we can do about it, is take care of our planet every way we can. We can also wear flowers all year round and feel great about it.

That's why I wear that wonderful flower necklace from the handmade jewelry e-shop majo with my checked bloomers from Strativarius (vraka in greek) and brown boots.

The constant gardener.

By wearing loose jeans and putting them into my boots, doesn't make me a gardener. But I surely look like one. My jeans aren't really jeans, they are made of fine, thin fabric that tightens down the legs. I bought them from a shop called Vavel, famous in Cyprus. 

My lovely necklace is handmade by friends that own the the handmade jewelry e-shop.The flowers on the necklace are from my imaginary garden...

Marc up.

Marc Jacobs is one of my favorite designers. His Fall/Winter 2010/2011 fashion show is as theatrical and inspired as he is. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

A piece of carrot cake.

I love Carrot Cakes. Especially the one that my aunt Eugene makes. It's so juicy and crunchy that I only stop eating when the platter is all empty. Here is the recipe and I hope you enjoy it!



4 eggs, 1 1/4 cups vegetable oil, 2 cups white sugar, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, 2 cups all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking soda, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, 3 cups grated carrots, 1 cup chopped pecans, 1/2 cup butter, softened, 8 ounces cream cheese, softened, 4 cups confectioners' sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 cup chopped pecans


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. 2. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, oil, white sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Mix in flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Stir in carrots. Fold in pecans. Pour into prepared pan.
3. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. 4. To Make Frosting: In a medium bowl, combine butter, cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Stir in chopped pecans. Frost the cooled cake.

That's probably why I love Carrot Pants, too. They are comfortable and juicy as well, don't you think? And of course, they are carrot shaped. 
That's me (no head, no head) wearing my grey-brown carrot pants from Zara, with grey Intimissimi tank top, camel La Redoute boots and Massimo Dutti cardigan.

The butterfly effect.

According to the chaos theory, if a butterfly is flapping its wings in South America can affect the weather in Central Park. And because my life is some how chaotic, I'll show you my butterfly top from I surely hope that every time I flap my wings in Chalandri, it rains in Africa, since they lack of clean water.

I love the... hole world.

The winter is very very close. So close I can feel its freezing breath on my neck. And definitely on my toes. You wouldn't like to have holes on your walls, but you do on your clothes. I'll show you a "hole" dress from and the way I wear it.

Last year's buy, this year's fashion.

Isn't it great to have an item you love in you closet from last year and this year is suddenly in fashion? That happens to me all the time. Maybe it's because I'm always ahead of my time :-) Anyway, I'll show you a checked t-shirt slash dress I bought last year from Cop Copine and two ways I wear it. In fact, I'm wearing it tonight (the 2nd way) for a name dash day celebration I have to go to.

Buttoned up (it has small buttons on the neck) with black tights and flat black boots.

Unbuttoned with lettered t-shirt ( dark gray tights and flat black boots.

Autumn getaway: Checked bloomers. Check.

The weekend is finally here and the wind blows through our autumnal brains. Yes, it's time for our getaway. There is no place that can't be matched with these beige bloomers. Checked fabrics are in fashion this year, but I don't think they were ever out of fashion, especially in the countryside. They may seem rumply to you, but they are not, because when you wear them, they are quite loose on the body and make these wrinkles. I call it visual reality :D I bought them from Stradivarius shop and I present them to you with a grey top (intimissimi), a brown zipped cardigan (benetton) and dark brown tights. I prefer these high-heeled boots, but I wear it with flat ones, too.

High heel-ed night out.

When it comes to Saturday night we all have a problem to decide what to wear. How many times have I sat in front of my closet, staring at the clothes and don't know what to do. Other times I changed so many clothes that I couldn't make it on time. And others I just put on whatever I'd touched first. The most important thing is to feel comfortable in your clothes, even if it's a Saturday night. Because when you feel comfy, you act like one. 

Below, you'll see pictures of my favorite outfit, which I usually wear with high-heeled boots. It's from and as you realized from my previous posts, I love it.

Autumn, my cousin's ex girlfriend.

My cousin lives and works as a doctor in the US. Some years ago he was dating an American woman whose name was Autumn. Autumn has always been my favorite season. That's why I was very sad when they broke up. And every time September begins, Autumn -the woman- comes to my head. The following clothes are dedicated to her and I hope she's happy, wherever she is.

 My loving crazy skirt from my trip to Barcelona from

 I usually prefer wearing my paramita skirt with these brown cowboy boots.
My latest buy from Really Autumny.
And this is the see-through chantilly-laced back. Isn't it magical?
And here it is with my diesel jeans.

I went for a morning walk with a friend at Golden Hall. When I passed by the Marc Jacobs' shop and saw his face on the fragrance poster, I had an appetite for my favorite fashion item: Boots (relevant in a strange kind of way).

 So, I'm going to show you some of my favorite pieces. From past till present. 

In my opinion, this is the most stylish Marc Jacobs’ boots, from his 2008 collection. High heels that are perfectly suitable for tights, skirts or jeans.

The wonderful 2009 classic military style lace up boots by belgian Ann Demeulemeester, who is still not very widely known by greek women.

I love these Vivienne Westwood suede pirate boots with silver leather buckles. Believe it or not, they were first produced in 1981 and are still in shops and in fashion.

Black and white and gray, that's the deal of the day.

Well, hello again. Today is the day that I will introduce you one of my favorite "Mozart" style long white shimmy. I bought it last autumn from sava.

Below, I will show you two of the ways I usually wear it.

Over a long off-white sleevless t-shirt, with grey skintights from La Redoute and flat casual boots.

I also wear it over a gray satin dress (sava). I buckle it up till the waste and let it loose so the dress' detail will be obvious. My favorite detail is the strapless blouse that I put over the white shimmy. I wear it with flat casual boots in the day or high-heeled boots for a night out.

So that was my black and white and gray suggestion of the day. You see that there are so many ways to wear a long "Mozart" shimmy.
