Fall 2014 Prêt-à-Porter // Burberry Prorsum


The best transitional collection from Summer to Fall is definitely the Burberry Prorsum AW2014. All you need to copy the look is five "statement" items:

1. A midi silk long-sleeved dress
2. A pair of heeled open-toe booties
3. A long scarf
4. A large tote
5. And a belt...

...and you are ready to go! Leave your hair and makeup simple and don't forget to wrap the dress and the scarf together with your belt to create the illusion that they are one piece!

Zodiac Circle


Bracelet // c/o Coco & Jagger
Shoes // Stradivarius (old)
Jumpsuit & Clutch// To see what I’m wearing and where to buy it, visit La Grèce J’aime


I am not the kind of person that reads or consults their daily horoscope. Never was. I do believe that people who were born in, let's say, Summer may have some common attitudes, but I never considered someone's zodiac sign a parameter to treat or think about that person accordingly. I believe in a human's uniqueness, choices, instincts, coincidences, even luck but not in signs.

However, when I saw Urania Gazelli's circle clutch with that heavenly turquoise color, the zodiac signs were the least of my concerns! Once again, Urania created a piece of art, a statement clutch that makes you stand out from the crowd even with the most minimalistic outfit. My gold-ish BO2 jumpsuit was the perfect canvas for a very summery Studio54 inspired outfit straight from the late 70s, which I paired with red heels and a gorgeous handmade bracelet.

Marble Palazzo


Top // ZARA
Pants // ZARA
Bag // Vintage (similar here)
Necklace // ZARA (old)
Ring // Accessorize (old)
Shoes // ZARA (old)


While I am on vacation right now with my Duke, enjoying the bright sun and the blue sea of the Aegean, here is an outfit we shot about a week ago. Marble white and ice-y grey match naturally and look perfect for a fresh summer look. Never forget that palazzo pants are always a good idea for a petite girl to look taller and slimmer.

Sorry for the "quicky", but I have to go to the beach now! Follow me on instagram for my Greek summer photos!!

Camellias


Dress// ASOS (out of stock, similar here & here)
Shoes // Stradivarius (old, similar here)
Bag // Vintage (similar here)
Flower Pin // Accessorize (old)
Ring // Accessorize (old)
Umbrella // Local Tourist Store 


Once I saw that dress, I instantly fell in love with it. That beautiful vintage design, with this sweet mint color and those huge fuchsia and red camellias, it was love at first sight! The problem was that I was not the only one... One minute I added it to my wishlist and the next the dress was out of stock! And this happened twice!! But I was lucky enough to get it the third time...

Camellias are flowering plants found in eastern and southern Asia, from the Himalayas east to Japan and Indonesia. The Far East and especially the Japanese culture, has always been a great inspiration for me. So I paired my camellia covered dress with a matching flower hair pin, a red vintage purse and a pair of red heeled sandals. Thanks to my Duke, the geisha umbrella was a last minute addition. And that wooden bridge @ the National Garden was so similar to those in Kyoto and Osaka that was definitely the best place to shoot it.
