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.

It’s always a good suprise to mix creativity, vintage treasures and office looks! That’s a really good example that made my office day beautiful and fashionable. Not too loud, not even too provocative…this outfit has the right dose of in fashion materials to make a daywear statement. Take some notes!
This morning, I just woke up with the idea to use my multicolor vintage pair of socks- socks are my new winter fetish, my fashion feedback from my trip in Tokyo, two years ago and the camera. I left the studio with a video that combines japanese harajuku girls style to a smart urban outfit. This is me in style action! Coming soon.

I insist on rock accesssories. Apart from my fave skull scarf (I bought it from TOPMAN 6 years ago) that I mostly use to my daily outfits I love rock decoration. Even if it comes of a Halloween mood.
- I never have seconds thoughts on sophisticated classic sunglasses. Love the design. Love the “easy to combine” color.
- Their only disadvantage is that they are heavyweight!
