*let’s talk about cool!

Είναι κάποια πράγματα που αξίζει να τα δεις αλλιώς.
Ο χρόνος είναι μια απίστευτα καλή αρχή.
Βασιλιάς που προσδιορίζει την καθημερινότητα.
Θησαυρός που λειτουργεί σαν πολύτιμη βιβλιοθήκη στιγμών.
Εξουσιοδοτημένο αρχείο εμπνεύσεων που θρέφουν την δημιουργικότητα και εκείνη κάνει θαύματα προκαλώντας νέες προοπτικές, δυνατότητες, αναγνώσεις, μηνύματα ήρωες.
Και εσύ, πολύ σωστά, θες και πρέπει να τις αξιοποιήσεις. Read more >>>

Tights-ing pleasure#!

OMG, they are my secret ally. My smart “outfit”. The “roommates” of all my sandals and pumps. My beloved touch to the winter looks. My favorite styling tools (a.k.a they are responsible for the complete transformation of all outfits) and to be to the point and honest, I just love them so much. The new season’s tights are always in the second drawer of my wardrobe, at the bottom left corner, and our passionate relationship counts officially three years. It all started three winters ago when I decided that they are the details that actually make the difference.

* I love their soft translucent texture that slowly sidesteps the opaque creations.

* Yes, for a final grunge touch to my looks, I wear ripped tights. P.S. There are tights with a special formula that make the rips in a specific controlled way, suitable for some rock experimentation.

* My favorite color is black with smart details (a.k.a dots)!

* Of course, I wear them with my sandals … always opaque of burgundy.

* I could easily replace my skinny pants with thick tights wearing them 24/7 with baggy men’s t-shirts, shirts or oversized sweaters.

* I never underestimate their styling power in an outfit as they add a creative touch and a “stand out of the crowd” result.

The 1st Year Blogging Birthday yellow/black thunder contest is still on. To win and wear, just like me, two of the coolest and “easy going” designs from the new Calzedonia FW2012-2013 collection you have to follow three simple steps. Subscribe to the youtube channel, follow me on Twitter and of course like the fb page writing first of all a comment about your favorite tights underneath this post. The competition will end with a draw on Thursday 15/11 and the results will be published till midnight.

Keep mystyleforecasting and good luck!

wanna play…socker?

Η λεπτομέρεια με συγκινεί. Έχω μαζί της σχέση καρμική. Τι να κάνω; Θέλω να αφηγηθώ την ίδια ιστορία αλλιώς επεμβαίνοντας χειρουργικά στην υπάρχουσα δομή της. Μπορώ; Φυσικά και ναι!!!

Η πρώτη αποστολή της νέας “χρονιάς” ξεκάθαρη. Κάνω casting σε trends και επιλέγω τα καλύτερα “όπλα” μου για τη μάχη της ευφάνταστης κομψότητας. Είναι τόσα πολλά. Ατιθασοδημιουργικά. Σωστή διαχείριση θέλουν. Μόνο αυτό. Προσοχή. Δεν είναι ¨κακά παιδιά”. Κάθε άλλο. Συμμαχούν σιωπηλά με τις πιο τρελές fashionoφαντασιώσεις μου και κάνουν κάθε day &night style dream μου πραγματικότητα. Αφήνομαι στην αθόρυβη γοητεία τους για να άλλαξω τελείως το σκηνικό της ντουλάπας. Η’ μάλλον των συρταριών μου. Αυτό κάνω από το πρωί. Τακτοποιώ ¨συρτάρια¨σε γραφείο και σπίτι “κατασκευάζοντας” την δική μου καθημερινή socking machine. Σετάρισμα, καλσόν, παπούτσια…φύγαμε!

Concept/styling: Annousa Mela_Design: Maria Sinanoglou_Socks & tights collection: Calzedonia

Κανόνας 1: Είναι καλό τον χειμώνα να φοράς οπάκ καλσόν. Σπάστον. Φυσικά και όχι, η διαφάνεια, υπεραγαπημένη, υπερλατρεμένη και υπερευέλικτη δεν αφήνει με τίποτα τον σπφιστικέ vintagoθρόνο της ως λαμπερή βασίλισσα του Οκτωβρίου +.

Κανόνας 2: Το μαύρο είναι το δημοφιλέστερο του χειμώνα Σπάστον. Κάνω add νέα φλοράλ, hot έντονα χρώματα και 60s πάττερν από το καλοκαίρι και τα φορώ με grunge style τζιν σόρτς, γκρι στενή pencil skirt ή δυναμική δερμάτινη φούστα.

Κανόνας 3: Τα nude χρώματα προσθέτουν κιλά στη σιλουέτα, a.k.a στα πόδια. Σπάστον. Φοράω τους τόνους της βανίλιας και της ζάχαρης κατά βάση με total black σύνολο και γόβες με μπαρόκ λεπτομέρειες “κλειδώνοντας” το εκλεπτυσμένο αποτέλεσμα με μια μπεζ, σομόν, off white ή soft pink επιλογή.

Κανόνας 4: Οι κάλτσες με γόβα είναι last season. Σπάστον. “Λαοθάλασσα” από μπότες 3/4, “ημίψηλες¨ ή απλά booties μέχρι τον αστράγαλο κάνουν την εμφάνισή τους στις πασαρέλες μαζί με άνετες βαμβακερές κάλτσες σε cool χρώματα (μπορντώ, χακί, σκούρο μπλε, πρώτα στη λίστα…). Σούπερ αισθητική. Υπεράνετη επιλογή. Πρώτος διδάξας για φέτος Marc Jacobs.

Εγώ μελέτησα και αγάπησα. Τα “πειράματα” τώρα δικά σου. Πάντως από την socking machine μου το καρδουλομπλέ καλσόν είναι ήδη στα αγαπημένα μου.

Plus, μην πούμε “γειά” αν δεν δεις λατρεμένο συνδυασμό πάττερν (λεοπάρ πέδιλα + πουά κάλτσες) εδώ και υπερλατρεμένο βιντεοεπεισόδιο με vintage κάλτσες (4 +1 cool συνδυασμοί) εδώ!

Ό, τι κι αν επιλέξεις κοίτα με πάθος να ξεχωρίζεις από το πλήθος.

Happy socking September everybody!

city chase

 Film concept, production & styling/ Annousa Mela. Director/ Vassilis Michail.

Handmade necklace Myhumbleworkshop for mystyleforecast.com. Total looks mystyleforecast.com Creativewear collection. Scandals Schutz.

Nothing can be compared to the cold air that crosses the face. It’s the original feeling of absolute freedom. My script for this film goes like this… When I desperately want to press a “pause” of few seconds to the crazy speedometer of my thoughts I simply decide to walk in a spontaneous, fast, stable, rhythmic and dynamic way. Without any commitment about the final destination and mostly without stress. My direction is constantly changing and the urban maze demands always new tours. The city has a cool freezy look with hundreds of different appearances. At each corner. In each square. Everywhere. This democratic diversity it’s impossible to leave me indifferent. I am inspired and I want to “wear” it but in my own terms. First, I have a fixed component. A vintage high waisted Levi’s jeans shorts with a shirt. Ok, I just created the main concept of the outfit. I will now choose the additional materials. I put satin and velvet in my fashion blender for a total look that leaves a strong taste of creativity without using anything extravagant. The only daring decision concerns the tights. When I am not totally in that funky pattern mood, I just go for the easy solution of an opaque black. Come on, walk with me and I make sure you get an impressive style gift for that. Don’t forget to read more of this post.

my little secret
I replace my usual jackets with vintage blazers that reach below the hips and I add to my outfit my favorite necklace. This “quietly dynamic” jewel makes its own strong statement mixing in a magical way the delicate plastic transparency with aggressive metallic details. Do you want it as well at the “headquarters” of your style decisions? Keep reading. I already named it Transparent Dream.

my protagonist
Megan Black is a girl who loves the blues, but prefers to wear black. Based in New York the 22 year old model is studying biology and adores animals. I knew it  immediately when her communication with the cat in the studio became something more than a common “dialogue” between a man and a cat. When I ask her where does she wants to work as a model she answers in Bangkok. But before I could even make a note she continues “Yet, Kenya, is the dream place I want to live”. She definitely prefers the ritual of a photo shooting than the noisy action of a fashion show, she is fascinated by the velvet ( she really loved the vintage black blazer that I gave her for the second scene of the style film) and she admits that the most popular piece in her wardrobe is a poncho.

and…a gift!
One of the main reasons I love fashion is because it can be dative.
