AXDW DAY #1 STRET STYLE

I know it took me way too long, but here it is! My first street style post. You can also find all the people from Fashion Week here, at the official street style page. Let's talk style now.I was really excited to see all these different people there. So many different faces, so many different outfits. As I predicted, I spotted some sneakers, mostly on catwalk. Most people were wearing heels, but I was excited to see the models walking on converse and adidas. I would probably have more photos if more people wanted pose for me. But what can you do? I'm just happy that I got to meet so many and interesting people who are passionate about fashion and work hard every day to achieve great things. Let's hope that we can possibly work together with some of them, in the future. I had such an amazing time yesterday, I even got to sit front row! Even I couldn't believe it! There were some shows I enjoyed more than others, but I'll tell you all about it in my following posts. Let's hope that today will be even better, with lots of phots from the front row! Do you like these photos? Leave a comment to let me know what you think!

PLANET FASHION TV

I'm so excited to reveal my collaboration with a new digital lifestyle magazine, Global Trend News! I will be writing articles for Planet Fashion Tv section and you can find them here together with other great topics every week. So far, there is only one article of mine but there is more to come. You can check it out here and tell me what you think. 
I'm just so happy that I am able to write about what I love and share my passion with others. Which also was the initial purpose when I started my blog. I love writing about all the things that intrigue my imagination and also writing my own stories and poems. I don't ever let anybody read them, but that's just me being shy.
This photo above, is from Fashion Week last season. I can't believe it's only one day away! All this time I've been waiting and struggling with real life. And I've been jealous of all the lucky ones who got to go to Fashion Week in Paris, Milan, NY... Let's pray that it will be worth the waiting(fingers crossed)! Those of you who live in Greece, are you planning to go? 
If you want, please check out my article on Global Trend News, and leave a comment to let me know what you think.
One last thing. I just want to say that I am grateful for all the things that are happening in my life. I hope that they will keep coming and that all the bad ones will eventually go away. I wish you all an amazing weekend-and Friday night^*

SPORTY, CHIC AND FASHIONABLE

source: Pinterest
I remember the time when sneakers used to be a big fashion DON'T. And I laugh. Right now, they have become one of the hottest accessories for fashionistas. I bet all of you, who always were fans of these shoes, are now jumping for joy on your new colorful Nikes. The times when the sneakers were strictly made for working out are over. You can now find them in any possible combination of color, material and brand, suitable for every weird and difficult taste. If you prefer classic minimalism, black and white Stan Smiths are also making a comeback. If you like to experiment(like me) you can go crazy and have colors, patterns and glitters on your feet, saying goodbye to blisters for good! Sneakers, slip-ons and loafers are everywhere, from runways(even Chanel!) to the streets and they are waiting for you to love them. 
Now that you can wear sneakers with dresses and skirts, it's also time to embrace another trend, also comfortable, and wear your heels with sweatpants. Sporty chic rules so you have now no excuse not to wear your sportswear outside.
I'm really curious to see how many sneakers I'm going to spot at Fashion Week in Athens. It's only two days away! This is actually another reason I'm happy-I'm wearing heels so all of you who are taller than me and are now wearing flats, BOO-YAH! Just kidding! I'm just really excited that the comfy shoe I wear every single day is in fashion! Please God, ehm...Karl, could you please continue making awesome things happen? I know you will!
What are your thoughts on this trend? Have you already fallen for it? Or not?
p.s. The last one is a photo of my sneakers. My Stan Smiths are probably the oldest ones you'll find "alive". They belonged to my aunt when she was my age! 
p.s.2 I am in love with the Nikes in the last photo before mine♥

SMELLS LIKE THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING

Here in Greece, when we want to say that something smells divine, we often say that it smells like the first day of spring!
I wanted to create an outfit that would capture this smell, in a way. Just casual chic with a hint of craziness and playfulness, something to make the transition easier. This floral top was the best I could find in my closet because everything else was just too light for this weather. I added the colorful bracelets and the rose ring and of course, my current obsession, the gold heart necklace. I'm actually wearing tons of bracelets on my other wrist but you can't see it here. To make the outfit a little more March-appropriate, I threw on this gorgeous jean shirt, which instantly makes the whole look less crazy and street-ready. To get in the mood, I also braided my hair. I love braids because you can do so many different things and conceal crazy frizzy hair any day(the girls with curly hair probably get me)! Just to make the look more natural, I ditched the makeup and I'm only wearing Baby Lips lipbalm, another huge obsession. No mascara, no liner, no concealer, no blush. I must admit it felt good, only a little uncomfortable since the camera is always ready to capture any imperfections. But, who cares? I just love springtime because you can be more casual and much less polished than winter. Especially during summer, because my eyes are light and I get tan, I don't even need to wear mascara. Don't get me wrong. I absolutely love wearing makeup and, also, trying new products and new ways to apply them. But when you do this all the time, your skin can be damaged and you constantly need to apply creams etc. This is why I feel so good whenever I have the chance to let my skin breathe. Spring is here and it's our chance to be bright and colorful. Ditch the blankets and leave the couch(but never EVER your tea) and go out! Wear something unexpected and SMILE!

WELCOME SPRING!

Spring is officially here!We are anticipating warmer days, clear blue sky and lots of colorful flowers. What better way to do it than admiring the amazing Dolce & Gabbana collection? I've been blabbering about blossoming shoes and bags lately, but this takes things to a completely different level. There is no point in saying how much I adore this brand, we already know that! But, it's really admirable that they manage to surprise us again and again for so many years. These patterns here may be a little more predictable than the Byzantine inspired collection, but they instantly make me daydream. By just looking at them, I can slightly smell spring coming and hear birds singing. That's what I consider success for an art piece. When it inspires the audience and arouses their emotions.
I was born in May, so that only makes my love for this season even bigger. This is why this collection makes me so nostalgic and awakes the romanticism inside me(like it wasn't already awake^*).
Are you loving this collection as much as I am? Leave a comment to let me know what you think!
Be happy and positive because spring is finally here♥
