Όταν έχεις γεννηθεί μεσημέρι Σαββάτου, οκτώ μέρες μετά τον δεκαπενταύγουστο, τον ήλιο τον αγαπάς πολύ. Πάρα πολύ. Πάρα πάρα πάρα πολύ! Και όχι δεν σε ζεσταίνει αλλά σε φωτίζει. Δεν σε τυφλώνει, σε λούζει με λάμψη. Δεν σε απωθεί, σε ελκύει όλο και περισσότερο. Αθεράπευτα ερωτευμένη με το καλοκαίρι, αθεράπευτα ερωτευμένη με τα καλοκαίρια μου, “κουβαλάω” πάντα το βασικό τους αξεσουάρ στην τσάντα, τα μαλλιά, το χέρι, το αυτοκίνητο, την τσέπη, κ.α και τον χειμώνα. Θα μπορούσα ενίοτε και χωρίς αυτό αλλά δεν θέλω..!
Σε πρόσφατη επίμονη στατιστική έρευνά μου στις άναρχες θήκες της ντουλάπας μου ανακάλυψα κάτι που ήξερα ήδη. Την Wayfarer αδυναμιομανία μου. Με all time classic DNA και αστρόσκονη που τα κάνει “σταρ” για πολλές δεκαετίες (βλπ. από το 1956) είναι το “αλάτι” των καλοκαρινών μου looks και το φετίχ των δαχτύλων μου κάθε μα κάθε πρωί (κλειδιά αυτοκινήτου, σπιτιού, κινητό, θερμός με to go καφέ και γυαλιά!). Δίνουν στυλ χωρίς να “κομπιάζουν”, αλλάζουν το ύφος ακόμα και του πιο απλού t shirt, ταιριάζουν με κάθε στυλιστικό προσανατολισμό!
Αυτό,λοιπόν, θέλω να μοιραστώ μαζί σου…μια customized Ray Ban Wayfarer δημιουργία που μπορεί να “προσγειωθεί” στις δικές σου θήκες με τέσσερις απλές ταυτόχρονες κινήσεις. Αν δείξεις αυθόρμητα πόσο πολύ σου αρέσει με like στη σελίδα του facebook , follow στο twitter, subscribe στο youtube channel για άφθονο videoενθουσιασμό (εκεί θα δεις σύντομα πολλές πολλές εκπλήξεις!) και, φυσικά, με δημιουργικοσχολιογλωσσοδέτη κάτω από εδώ. Ο διαγωνισμός λήγει την Τετάρτη 7/11 τα μεσάνυχτα. Έλα πάλι εδώ την Πέμπτη 8/11 για τα αποτελέσματα της κλήρωσης.
The yellow/black game begins!
Ξεχώρισε από το πλήθος, αυτή τη φορά, παίζοντας!

Ok, style is code. It reveals everything, it precedes everything. And all I want to express apart from my closet, my mind, my notes, my mirror, my beauty case, my room, my heart, I want to show in this way, here and now. In a little bit abstract but always passionate way. Moreover, I love collages since I was a little kid. They have a styling process in their own way. They make everything seem a simple game. And this is exactly what it is. The direction is not one but many. OMG, I just thought of that. Imagine a compass of fashion. A compass of beauty. Helping you to find the orientation of the original expression. This is the basic principle of style. Authenticity. And I want to talk to you about the “guardian angels” of it. Heels are everything to me, but I prefer their creative aspect. The patterns intervene in the monochromatic choices and the sequins acquire a coolest than glam outfit role. To all the above add some exotic patterns, eyeshadows pulled out from Warhol creations, exciting juicy lip glosses, cold flavors, ethereal figures, flashy scenes and details that stand out from the crowd. See it all together and individually at the same time. That’s what I do to choose the “materials” of my style recipe. Same same but different. And if you like as on your fridge, to put on your closet magnets with images that you love because they inspire every single second, let me show you mine first. Did you saw the All Star? Did you notice … the Ray Ban Wayfarer with the vintage green lens, the cool Accessorize handbag, the vintage friendly H & M visor (yes, the cap, I mean ..), the super chic casual bun and the 2 minutes Pantene Pro v Intensive Restructuring Mask.This is how much time it needs to quench the thirst, to protect and to revive the shine of my hair before or after the beach wherever I am, wherever I go. Roughly, this is how much time I need you too to add at all the above and to “narrate” to you my favorite vintage treasures … pop red earrings + ab fab patterned top + absolutely feminine sunglasses + “sensitive” scarf+ clutch bag with the coolest hidden chain = L.F.E. All by mystyleforecast.com Creativewear Summer Collection. Let me just play for a while with them- when the f of fashion stands for fun, I’m happy- , check your fave piece and I am waiting for you at the same position in 21 seconds …I have a special surprise for you!

Do you love color? YES, I love it.
And well it’s not to difficult to manage to mix it with your clothes? NO, because I’m not afraid of it. Just what you are afraid of, incommodes you.
And if the final look is eccentric? There is no eccentric result in fashion. The only thing you need is balance between the one that selects an items and its selection.
And if I want but ..? It’s simple as that. Organize your feelings into pictures. Manage your thoughts and enjoy their projection at your mirror. And anyway you are not alone in that case.
This dialogue has the same characteristic with the infinite. It’s endless. By itself, an indefinite one-act play with me on and off stage in a multi-role of interpretation, approach and clapping.
Ok, it’s clear. I AM GOING TO TALK ABOUT COLOR. So as I spread it in the city. Through special vintage clothes, smart accessories and pigments. Yes, from those pigments that nourish my disposal for fun childish things and my insatiable creative wanderings.
Alina wears everything that I love for its shape and design and I just want to paint. Inspired by the joyful “colorful” aura of my protagonist I coordinate my universe with it. The intractable female orange top, and the yellow nostalgic shirt and the floral pattern that is expressed through a cool masculine creation, and the sunnies, and the watch, and the lipstick and the eyeshadows and many other “tools” that were there but you cannot see them.
They are pieces that are always in my closet- “satchel like the markers that fill with color the black & white “contours” of every day.
As the game is much more fun when playing with friends I team up with beautydiaries.gr and I get my markers by Sephora inviting/challenging you to claim your own colorful dimension at a unique inte blogging event on Saturday, April 7.

Live free. Be Happy. This is the motto of Alina Preiss who makes the laughing, “profession” and the positive energy, the IT “accessory” of the new season. She says that her favorite color is yellow, bright and “smiling” of course, her fave celeb style, the British cool looks of Alexa Chung and her favorite model, Antonia Wesseloh for the Prada campaign SS12. For her looks, she is inspired exclusively from her walks on the streets watching the original fashion expressions of different personalities. She is studying history at the University of Munich and as a proper history student who loves anything that has a past, she has a wardrobe full of vintage clothing. When I am asking her to reveal me her style fetish, she starts talking with enthusiasm about a cool pair of Harley black boots she bought for $10 in Istanbul while she is dreaming to live in New York city.
