Did you hear the news? Nine West launched a Perfume. It's called Love Fury and it's available at Sephora. I was lucky enough to be one of the first people to... smell it and I have to say that it's pretty good. You should definitely give it a try!
As for the bottle? It's heel-inspired and I couldn't think of something more appropriate for all the shoe-loving fashionistas out there! Needless to say, it went straight to my Facorites list!

Another day, another outfit post featuring a birthday gift. This skirt was given to me as a gift from my friend Christiana and it was love at first sight. I've already worn it quite sometimes (even to attend a wedding) and I still can't get enough of it.
The only "problem" I had with this skirt was that, like most of the clothes the last couple of seasons, it was a little too sheer. To solve the problem once and for good I headed to Oysho and got a couple of those nude, tight under-skirts. Now I can wear anything without fearing that I might reveal more than I should! If you 're into cute summery dresses and skirts you should definitely get one of these as well.

As a huge Michael Kors fan I couldn't miss the chance to see his new lower-priced collection called MICHAEL Michael Kors at Golden Attica. So, yesterday afternoon right after work I attended the special bloggers event that took place at the MK corner.
10 out of 10. The clothes and accessories are perfectly manufactured and the fabrics are excellent.
definitely lower than most of the other designer pieces that one can find in the stores. To give you an idea, the price range is something like 50€ to 450€ and most of the dresses/skirts/pants cost between 150€ - 300€.
Info: The MICHAEL Μichael Kors collection is available at Golden Attica in Golden Hall

If you are extremely busy or let's say you have to pick a nice outfit in less than 5 mins all you have to do is wear a simple white top and a statement skirt. Lately, I'm really into those scarf-print skirts because I think that they're very unique and add that little something one needs in order not to look totally "blah".

Walking around Monastiraki in a Wedding Gown. Now that's something that you don't do every day!
I did it though, a couple of weeks ago and I had Ioanna, Nelly and Annousa with me! You see, we were chosen by designer Victoria Kyriakides to take part to a special photoshoot for her Bridal Bloggers Project and I had the time of my life!
I have to admit that when it comes to Wedding Gowns I am very picky and hard to please as I always find the bridal collections to be over the top and usually kitch. This wedding gown I wore though was absolutely perfect since it was Pincess-y enough but not overly "loud" and sparkly.
As you can see from the above pic Nelly chose a shorter design whereas Ioanna went for a retro - kind of 30's inspired gown. (Obviously instead of posing I was swirling around all the time, but that's another story I guess)
As for my favorite feature of the dress? It was the ending where Victoria had sewn thousands of feathers! Loved loved loved it!

The weekend-getaway season is officially on so now it's the time to start looking for the the vacation essentials. For many years I was trying to find my getaway dressing ID but I felt like nothing worked for me. When I'm not in the city I really want to go around in my swimsuit and I need my clothes to be comfortable and definitely not complicated so I was never into caftans or trendy shorts and stuff like that. Actually, it wasn't until last summer that I found the perfect outfit for me.
An oversized white sleeveless top, a thin belt and a couple of long boho necklaces is all I need!

Τuesday afternoon was dedicated to Tod's and Hogan. Right after work I headed to Golden Hall where I had the chance to preview the Winter Collections and take another glance at the lovely Spring - Summer designs!
I can never get enough of the perfectly manufactured Tod's pieces so here are some pics of my SS favorites:
Those of you who have been reading my blog the last couple of years definitely know that I have a thing for white knitted tops. I find that they 're very versatile and so much cuter than the plain simple white tees and they add style points to every outfit.
Another obsession of mine is skinny belts. I add a belt to almost any outfit because it defines the waist and it really compliments the body. You should definitely try this trick! Just give yourself a couple of minutes to see the exact point where the belt looks better on you (higher or lower on the waist) and you are ready to go. Trust me, it really works!

It's been quite some time now that I am trying to replace my basic pieces with others that are less boring but as comfortable as the the everyday basics. Believe it or not, a maxi skirt can be as comfortable as your favorite jeans (especially if matched with a pair of flat motorcycle booties) and a flannel shirt can be a lot cooler than the simple t-shirt.
As for the necklace that I'm wearing here, it's a special design by Swarovski. It was given to the editors that attended their presentation in Paris and I love it because it's rock, shiny and very chic at the same time.

I was recently introduced to those lovely Caudalie Products and I must say I am very happy. On a daily basis I use the tinted moisturiser and the bronzer (which is by the way one of the best I've ever tried) and when I want a little more pampering I can't get enough of the Divine Oil that can be used on the body, face and hair and it has a lovely and so relaxing smell.
Now the best part is that Caudalie products are parabens - free and the company is a member of "1% for the Planet", that means that they give at 1% of their turnover towards implementing enviromental projects and the product packaging is made of 50% recycled paper.
What's more, I should tell you that not only is Divine Oil a wonderful product, but also for every bottle sold, Caudalie supports reforestation in the Amazon!
Info: Caudalie Products are available in selected Pharmacies (Click to find the one closer to you)

The very few times that I want to step out without wearing a dress I always turn to those trusty Wrangler jeans of mine and a classic, oversized tee. The only problem is that if paired with classic black accessories this outfit looks kind of boring. And that's exactly why I decided to invest in a couple of brighter items. After all summer is so unbelievably close!
Wrangler jeans, Zara tee + shoes, Uterque bag
Zerteo + Lito bracelets, Anna - Maria Mazaraki ring
