Το καλοκαίρι έχει γεύσεις.
Ντομάτα. Υποβρύχιο βανίλια. Ελληνικός καφές το πρωί στο νησί. Γρανίτα φράουλα.

*street forecast no 7

Usually I talk a lot and I write a lot and I think a lot.
But this May, for some reason that I am still trying to explain, made me feel that days and nights are or even look smaller, like when I am trying to fit into jeans that I know that is not really my size!

This is not about styling. It’s all about restyling the whole wardrobe. Just like that everything is new again. Write down a few of my tricks.

Generally, I do not love lists. On the other hand, the collages absolutely yeah! That’s because they help me to do lists in a more pleasant way. Today I wanted to definitely fit my thoughts in one image. And I did it. I put everything I think, want, love, seek, and use to a head that seems that it will explode because of all that information. Yes this is my head. And because a picture is stronger than a thousand words I won’t say much (strange!). I’ll just name the elements of the style that came with the most bizarre and at the same time creative month of my life, May!

1. Totally coordinated with my next post and mini bridal project I love the white pumps with high but restless heels.

2. I “insist” on doing my fave sloppy bun on top of my head. The secret is to do a ponytail and wander it around itself many times.

3. I love the grey ab fab tops. I wear them as is or, alternatively, baggy tank top from inside. If you ask me where to find it I will tell you to cut off your cool and basic ZARA or H&M grey top.

4. The vintage style sunglasses are now more hot than ever. Nostalgic style as required to sprinkle my everyday style.

5. I “graft” with spikes my favorite jeans Levi’s shirt. I love the restyling and you know it. It was about its time to go to the next fashion level.

6. I love the black background contrast in summer. I just added to the summer collection of the blog a white denim shorts. I will wear it with a black long sleeve transparent shirt.

7. The spikes are the DNA of my accessories. See the ring that fits my 24/7 style. I got it four years ago from a London market.

8. I cannot live without vitamins, but lately and not even without sugar. Bananas and chocolate consist my breakfast for the last  2 days  on a slice of multigrain breads. I do the necessary “styling” to my refrigerator too.

9. The pleats are the”quiet force” of my closet. I wear them in an intense color and afterwards I let the manicure to follow the same color direction.

All those style tricks together or separately are a way to stand out of the crowd.  Try them too and reinvent your closet!

P.S. Many thanks for the perfect collage the art director and illustrator Maria Sinanoglou.

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.
