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 www.majo.gr 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 http://www.bsbfashion.com/. I surely hope that every time I flap my wings in Chalandri, it rains in Africa, since they lack of clean water.
