Pure White!
White is the ultimate outfit color for summer vacations in the Greek islands. It reflects sunlight, matches to the little white houses and chapels in Cyclades, attracts attention and blends with the amazingly bright landscape. White is perfect all the time and its neutral. Flatters bronze skin and stresses...

Subtle and Beautiful!

Subtle and Beautiful!
Subtle colors, transparencies and interesting textures were the main ingredients of this look. I picked up and interestingly pleated taffeta dress from an older Karen Millen collection, with a bow on the neckline, and matched it with a mink-and-leather head-band, plus nude Casadei pumps. It’s...

Ultra Chic And Bright!

Ultra Chic And Bright!
I love bright colors but the most important thing here it to make them look classy, without the slightest hint of exaggeration. These vivid areas of the spectrum call for simple lines and some subtle, pastel or neutral accents for a balanced look. I combined this tangerine Michael by Micheal Kors dress...

I want to wear my wide-brimmed hat and set out for summer vacations. Let’s mix off-white with blue, crochet with straw, and pony skin with flirty zebra print. I m wearing a wonderful Juicy Couture hat, a vintage crochet dress with Karen Millen elastic belt, and Christian Louboutin wedges. Are...

Mixing Lace and Neutrals!

Mixing Lace and Neutrals!
This magical blend of lace, nudes, pastels and romantic details makes me feel more relaxed. It’s girly and sweet, sophisticated and cool. I tried this pistachio green caftan, or else shirt-dress, with my fine crochet Hoss Intropia coat and nude Casadei pumps, creating in the end, a retro-chic...

My Bluish Stripy Look!
Blue and stripes are dominant features in this look. I tried to combine knitwear with sequins and pony skin, based on color accordance and pattern similarities. My knitted dress matches well with this sequined, electric blue Karen Millen jacket and my favorite Christian Louboutin pony-skin wedges. It’s...

I love to wear purple because its flattering. It’s mysterious, powerful, chic and sophisticated, especially when combined with grey accents and some white. This look comprises of a floral Karen Millen dress, my favorite Yarnz scarf, Prada peep-toes and, when the weather gets colder, a white Zara...

My Pistachio-And-Berries Look!

My Pistachio-And-Berries Look!
It sounds delicious and provocative but it still gives a great hint about the sorbet colors I love to use this summer. I bought this lace-trimmed caftan some years ago and I m still loving it very much cause it’s very romantic and classy. Then I thought that a great contrast to its pistachio ‘flavor’...

My Show-Stoppers!

My Show-Stoppers!
It seems that one show-stopping scarf can really transform a simple little white dress into a true statement. I mixed & matched my D&G dress with my Yarnz Bill-Cunningham-themed scarf and then with my polka-dot Louis Vuitton scarf, both having an outstanding impact by themselves. The result...

My Off-White Inspiration!

My Off-White Inspiration!
Sometimes deviating from the bright white, means a little bit more yellowish which can be proven interesting as it stresses the retro spirit in our wardrobe. In this case I wanted something romantic and chic with accessories that could easily support a lady-like look. I combined white D&G dress...

They are 100% made of wood and can be called a very smart mix of nature and modernity supporting strongly...

Wrapping Tangerine!

Wrapping Tangerine!
Scarves can wrap a tangerine or just complement a tangerine dress. I tried two different combinations – one very ‘French’ and the other very ‘Spanish’. My grey scarf, designed by Paris-based Antoine Antoniadis, is classic and chic, offering a substantial degree of sophistication to this...

Covering Tangerine!

Covering Tangerine!
As I previously said, Tangerine is a super cool shade for this summer and I really want to keep an experimental approach towards it. Wearing a long tangerine dress can be a great challenge for combinations with jackets or cardigans. Silk can contradict in a very sophisticated way knitwear or sparklewear!...
