Συνήθως, όποιος βλέπει το γραφείο μου, βλέπει πανικό.
Εγώ βλέπω ένα οργανωμένο χάος με την γοητεία της ανεπιτήδευτης ομορφιάς που κάθε μέρα αλλάζει με ευκολία χωρίς ποτέ να είναι το ίδιο, με τα κρυμμένα μυστικά, τα χειρόγραφα post it με τον λατρεμένο μου κλασικό μπλε Bic, την πάντα γεμάτη κούπα με ζεστό καφέ Jacobs, σκέτο με γάλα, το moodboard που καρφιτσώνω πράγματα, υλικά, κάρτες, σελίδες, κορδέλες, δαντέλες και άλλα πολλά. Η ιδέα αυτής της στήλης, λοιπόν, ξεκίνησε από εκεί για να φτάσει τελικά εδώ. Όπου keyboard…αγαπημένο στυλό και όπου dashboard…χιλιοχρησιμοποιημένη ατζέντα. To posting, πλέον για εμένα, αποκτά και vintage χαρακτήρα και εγώ με αυτόν θα σου διηγηθώ τις πιο street ιστορίες και τις πιο αγαπημένες απίθανες συμβουλές μου όπως τις “τακτοποιώ” στα συρτάρια μου..
Try your Xmas-iest look!
Embellish the make up with your beloved all time Xmas elements, a.k.a stars, “building” on a strong theatrical and creative base the final result.The steps for a cool “stand out from the crowd” look in just 150 seconds, two and a half minutes if you prefer, are way too simple.
- Put on the skin a small amount of make-up after your moisturizing serum for an extra boost of natural glow.
- Highlight the cheekbones using the smiling trick to put on both cheeks a liquid red color blush for a teenager blushing effect that gives an invisible magical aura in the whole face.
- Draw with patience and a thick line the contour of the eyes with your black pencil, always with emphasis on the outer corner of the eyes. For the smoky eyes result of the photo is “responsible” the magical Korres Black Professionals Khol with a specially designed soft nose ideal for the inner eye contouring and a completely stable result.
- Strengthen the glamorous attitude of your effort with the “catalyst” of your charm, meaning the lashes. Pass the mascara from the bottom up and from the inside out on the outer side at a time of their surface.
- Replace the swing style of 60s with a mole over the lips area with an urban cool star sticker under the eyes in gold or silver disco ball color.
The “merry-bat-Christmas” make up is just created and the look that you are dreaming of is just a “professional eye pencil and a star sticker” away.
Good luck & love.
A look is an experiment. That’s a fact. On a daily basis I study, take notes, put “post it”s on what I love, review, wonder, look for something new and eventually live with or without it. Every day is an adventure in progress. Its report is always completed at the end of the day and the next day I start from the beginning again. My yesterday’s style adventure has its narration today including inspiration from blogistas, “silent” heating tool use, a little amount of hairspray, an almost non existent makeup (fond de teint + blush = children’s skin), the enjoyment of a deep hydrating hair mask and the “petting” of my hair from the inside outwards with the fingers of both hands. My proof is just a few millimeters below. Wavy cool. Preparation time, 13 minutes. Basic requirement…strong hands for steady use of the straightener.
Respect to the man who first created a practical thermal method, a.k.a Marcel Grateau, 1872. A pair of special tongs, one with a circular cross section and the other with concave that shaped curls. Is exactly this invention that is used at the headquarters of hair coolness in Kifissia.
I will tell you all the secret tips about it. How else will you update your style notebook? Use a straightener rather than a curler. Add volume to your hair from the beginning of the wavy process blow drying hair with the head upside down. Hold each section of hair in the ¨ heating “for 30 seconds. Your flocks must be thick and not subtle. Never backcomb at the crown. Use the minimum of hairspray. Always spray from a reasonable distance.
Do you want to do the same without straightener? Easy. Before going to sleep at night separate hair in two parts and create two identical loose braids, one on the right and one on the left. At the morning solve both braids, brush lightly the hair and fix the locks with a minimum amount of a deeply moisturizing hair oil. The wavy hair is ready. As for the front tufts, anchored them to your favorite side with colored hair clips. Any questions? Please, leave your comments and “haistylish” thoughts below. Any new creations? Just send me your instam/phone/photo camera snaps to create together a new toooooooo wavy post (email@example.com)!
p.s You can always stand out from the crowd with the most smart style moves. Let’s reinvent simplicity together. Over all, there is nothing more cool than a wildcat hairstyle!
The idea: Invited to a party I have to respond quickly to its fashion inquirements without a look that “shouts” with an annoying way “hey, I am an evening look”. I “move in” some street pieces to the glam party section of my closet and I mix my beloved fabrics (cotton + chiffon).
The reference: A look that if it was a dessert would be avocado with honey. Simple and luxurious.
The materials: Nothing new.
The recipe: Always inspired by the moment I have nothing premeditated. I base the look on my basic philosophy …nothing seems nice if you do not feel good while you wear it and I follow my instincts. Of course, I open both leaves of the closet plus two drawers and two boxes full of accessories.
The how- to: I choose my lace bra in a color that reflects my mood at the specific day and time. I have this same design in five colors. Instead of the classic Tshirt I choose a second hand tank from my university era at London. Longtime ago. I already count 7 years ago. I wear my ballet style skirt- thank god I bought it black since the beige one was sold out because the black creates a color contrast between its dark ID and the delicate fabric- and my opak tights. Since the skirt is a bit longer than I want (reached in the middle of the knees ) I veer it once at my waist and fasten it with a skinny black satin ribbon. I deal with the low temperature with a college sweater without a hood in a vintage grey color and complete the look with a goth necklace of five silver crosses. Finally, the balance of opposite items is covered with a leather bike jacket which is “covered” with my naughty sleek haistyle. I recommend this style unreservedly. Especially with the bordeaux suede sandas of 13 points heels.
The advice: Do not ever hesitate for any reason to do a stylish upgrade to your beloved a.m outfit with a jewel. You will not regret it ever.

I am interested in the detective’s job description. And this time I acted like one. I parked my car at the parking and walking down Voulis St. in weather conditions of tolerable cold (14o C -check on my weather widget) I see on my left hand a big total white door. I get in. My phone behaves for once more as an eyewitness of my initiation at a vintage corner of the city. When I am just a few km away from my home and the atmosphere changes in a provocative way making me feel that I stand at my beloved places around the world where I feel, breath and live , I am happy. It’s so simple like that. No, it has nothing to do with events, it’s all about a cool style action. Cupcakes + soups + amazing lighting + lots of stairs + neoclassical building + dressing rooms + daylight + sideburns + oversized square heels + eyeliner + too many familiar smells= Vintage Monthly. An environment of unhampered style operates almost like a psychotherapy session against anything that causes neurosis. At the stomach or elsewhere. I will go back again.
On the shelves of time design makes the difference.
I love the headpieces. Only details are capable to strengthen the personal style.
Time without space feels naked. It “steals” moments of decorating magic just to be dressed.
Fills in with action.
Gets inspired by the less evident.
Blends old and new to invent expression.

2.11 π.μ. and after a one of my favorites “run forest run” day, that wasn’t a proper 24/7 but a project on its own, two things came suddenly across my mind. The other day a friend of mine said that if we could observe Earth from an extremely high position, not from a balloon, higher, not from a plane, even higher, from a space craft, the surface of Earth scrimps because of the distance and looks like a giant raw natural pattern. Ok, that’s the most stylish geographical description I have ever heard. On the same time, I was thinking that every day when I wake up in the morning I beg for some extra minutes of sleep. That’s not for rest. It’s for dreaming on. There is something with the dreams that make them magical to me. The particular arbitrary capacity to provoke at a hypothetical time and place the coexistence of people from the past, of locations, countries and neighborhoods that you visited once or maybe never before, of images that exist only in your mind sprinkled with lots of doses of a crazy scenario. Therefore when, 1st thought + 2nd thought = new thought! This evening, at the heart of Athens, I saw that new “thought” standing in front of me on shelves, dolls, hangers and boxes. Patterns of an everyday urban craziness coexisted in a divided clothing collage that continuously promoted its incredibly strong personality. I have just counted more than 50 photos in my Iphone. I chose those that were not busy and visualized the taste from my today’s press preview touch of the Versace for H&M collection. Well, goodnight.
