Scarlet Red // *Twinkle Collection*

Still wondering what to wear to that Christmas party you're invited?

Bill Blass has the answer for you: "When in doubt, wear Red!"

Girls that really want to make a statement with their looks, already know that red is the best color to turn heads and attract all eyes. Red is the most stunning color, has presence and overflows with energy. It boosts your mood, you feel more confident and has a distinct effect on the people who see it.

However, this doesn't mean you cannot wear it again. Red is a very bright and festive color that you can wear with black, white, grey and metallics not only for the Holiday season but also many other occasions: Birthdays and other Parties, Ballet Night Out, Cocktails with the BFFs, Young Moms Palydate and many more. Ask away and I am here to help you!!

*Scarlet Red* has 4 layers of deep red tulle on top and 3 layers of light grey tulle underneath. Comes with inner lining in black and, like all *Twinkle* skirts, is handcrafted by Joanna Misseli.

Tulle Inspiration // Sarah Jessica Parker

All Hail the Queen of Tulle, her majesty, Sarah Jessica Parker!

As Carrie Bradshaw in "Sex and the City", she re-invented how adult women wear tutu skirts, not only as wedding gowns, but also during the day with a tank top or for a night at the ballet. Along with her magazine covers and her personal appearances outside the show she managed to banish the cliché "tulle skirts are ONLY for little girls" from our shopping vocabulary! And I thank her for that from the bottom of my heart...

"Romantic" is actually a style and it does exist I can guarantee you that! And derives from the movement of Romanticism, emphasizing on the individual's expression of emotion and imagination [...] and rebelling against established social rules and conventions. In my opinion, anyone can wear a tulle skirt, as long as they create an outfit relevant to their age, personal style and situation.

Don't hesitate to ask me how to dress the tulle skirt up or down, I can help you through it, I am here for you!

Sparkly Grey // *Twinkle Collection*

It's been almost a week that my *Twinkle* Tulle Skirt Collection was launched. Your sweet thoughts and lovely comments are so precious to me and I am so happy that you have embraced and support it so much!

In this post I would like to share some details about the skirts:

>> Every single skirt is handcrafted, tulle by tulle, in Greece, with high quality materials, by Joanna Misseli. All you have to do is tell us the color you desire and your waist's exact measurements and we will make it for you.

>> All three designs have 7 layers of tulle and come with inner lining. We wanted them to be as fluffier as possible and look rich & princess-y.

>> Their length from the waist down is 70cm. Midi skirts are easier to wear for every age and any occasion.

>> They all have a discreet silver twinkling stud on the back, which is the collection's trademark.

Unpublished photos of *Sparkly Grey* are featured in this post, showing this sweet and romantic skirt from more angles. There are two more posts planned to follow with shopping tips and a step-by-step guide for boyfriends (!), featuring *Scarlet Red* and *Foamy Black*. Stay tuned!

♪♫♪ Stars Shining... ♫♪♫

Skirt // Chicwish
Star Clutch // Chicwish
Heels // ZARA (old, similar here)
Top // H&M (old, similar here)
Earrings // Accessorize (similar here)

(click on the link above to listen to the song while reading the post and looking at the photos)

Every year during Christmas time, that song plays in loop inside my head. No wonder why Ella's & Louis's divine voices inspired me to create today's outfit... A sequined top, a star clutch, a skirt named "Bling Bling" and a pair of metallic gold heeled sandals allowed me to create a shiny & bright look, perfect for this season's parties. Because, if you don't shine like a star during Christmas, then when?

*Twinkle* // My Tulle Skirt Collection

I am very excited and happy to introduce my 1st tulle skirt collection in collaboration with my gal, Joanna Misseli. It was an idea that struck me the moment I met her. Within 10 days I had the entire concept figured out, planned and executed. We are happy to announce that from today  you can have your perfect dreamy, fluffy, girly tulle skirt for the Holidays, TAILOR-MADE ESPECIALLY FOR YOU!! Isn't this awesome?

I was inspired by YOU, your messages, which sum up to three types of girls...

Sweet and Romantic. We created a fluffy *Sparkly Grey* skirt for you, like a star in the sky, with 7 layers of light grey tulle. The one on top is sparkly, of course!

Show-stopper. Especially for you, I picked *Scarlet Red* tulle for the top layers and combined it with light grey tulle underneath.

Shy... but you want so badly to be covered in tulle! Our *Foamy Black* design consists of 4 layers of classic black tulle on top and 3 layers of light grey tulle underneath, to lighten up the blackness and make the skirt look dreamier.

Which one are you?
