EVENT PLANNING ft. PAPERLESS POST ♡

 
Good morning loves! How is August treating you so far? I've been sick for days but my cold is slowly subsiding and I am ready to seize the last days of summer!♥

Here, in Greece, summer equals a long pause when it comes to parties and events since everyone is pretty much scattered across the country on vacation. But, as fall approaches, people start making plans again to welcome the new season. Thus, I teamed up with Paperless Post, a company that helps you create online and paper stationery that reflects your individual aesthetic, to share with you some tips regarding events and planning.

If I am invited to a certain event, I always like to plan ahead. You need to check your schedule, RSVP (check out some lovely stationery here) and make any necessary purchases. The invitation will usually state the dress code (casual, formal etc.) and you must stick to it. I start by browsing my closet and checking to see if I have any outfits appropriate for the occasion and, preferably, something that I haven't worn to an event before. If I don't, I will go out and buy something and I will choose some pieces from my mum's recent jewelry line to go with it. If it's a birthday, a baby shower or a wedding, you must also take the gift into consideration.

If I am hosting the event (which I love to do) I like to pay attention to every little detail. Date, guests, food, music, decorations... As for the invitations, it depends on the type of the event. If it's something informal and I'm only inviting close friends, I will probably design the invitations by myself and send them via email. If it's more formal and the guest list is larger, I will order my invitations online and send them the traditional way.

Lately, online invitations have been extremely popular and for good reason. It's a fast, easy and very millennial way to communicate with your guests and friends and there are so many different options to choose from. Take Paperless Post, for example. They have collaborated with designers such as Kate Spade and Oscar de la Renta to provide you with stunning online cards and invitations. They have so many beautiful designs that I find it difficult to pick a favorite.

I will definitely use them the next time I'm planning an event, especially if it's related to fashion. In this business, looks matter more than anything else and you need to stay true to your style and manifest it in any way possible. From your clothes to your work and even your invitations. In my experience, a good invitation can make it or break it for any event.

If you are interested in digital cards and invitations, I highly recommend you to visit www.paperlesspost.com and check out their amazing stuff!

MET GALA 2014 VS 2013

We've all heard about the Met Gala. Fund raising event of the Metropolitan Museum that tons of celebrities attend every year. Glamorous and exclusive. According to Wikipedia, in 2014 the ticket for each guest costed 25,000$! Whaaat! Of course all of our favorite celebrities were there this year, and some of their outfits were to die for. I thought it would be fun to do a little competition between 2013 and 2014. Here are my favorite looks. I'm going to start with my love, Cara Delevingne. I won't spend any of your time blabbering about how much I admire her and how gorgeous she is. I'm just going to say that she wore pants at an event where almost everyone wears a gown. She could totally wear anything and look perfect, but I must admit that I also loved her last year's dress. Tough decision...
I definitely prefer Diane Kruger's 2013 look. Edgy and interesting.
The Olsens decided to cool things down a little. Chic!
Giesel rocks 2013, but she is divine in 2014!
The lovely Emma Stone. Can't decide(hu-pink-hu). 
2014! 2014! Karolina Kurkova
Sarah Jessica Parker calmed things down as well. Love 2014's hair!
Liu Wen made it so hard to chose! McQ! No, Posen! No, wait...
Riri, with her cropped top and the total white look. Simply...wow!
(I couldn't find a photo of her in 2013...)
Dakota Johnson! Love her dress but still can't decide about her...
Zac Posen stole my heart. Arizona Muse, amazing!
Mustard is not in my top favorite colors, silver is! 2014 for Lily Aldridge!
It looks like Amber Heard has a great taste ;) Just saying...
Karlie Kloss makes me feel smaller than I already am but I can't help it, I love her! Definitely 2014!
 Queen B on fire!
Kristen Stewart in Chanel Haute Couture SS14! Sorry 2013...
Blake Lively is my girl! She can do no wrong!
And my favorite from 2014...
Suki Waterhouse in Burberry♥
