FASHION WEEK INSTA-DIARY

Hey guys! How are you?? I'm so happy that this week is finally coming to an end, because I really need some rest. Here in Greece, was a national holiday, but I didn't stay in and relax like normal people did. You see, I had to go to fashion week.
Those of you who have been to one probably understand what I'm talking about. It's that mix of feelings where you really want to go and see all the fashion shows, but on the other hand, you just want to stay in bed and burn your heels.
Let's be honest, I am tired, but I truly had an amazing time. I met new people (some of them knew my blog #OMG) and I got to be surrounded by fashion, which is kind of rare in my everyday life. The ones that follow me on instagram, obviously noticed that I was posting like crazy these past few days. 
So, I thought that instead of a boring outfit post, I should show you Athens Exclusive Designers Week, through my point of view.
You know that feeling when you realise that a big event is tomorrow and you still haven't figured out what to wear? Jewelry is a very important part of my look, and I think that the right combo can really make the difference. {FIY I ended up wearing most of these the first day...oops^^}
I got new last minute business cards specially made for fashion week. I love the way they turned out! ps. I gave that necklace to my bestie to wear at axdw.
 Just a tired, blurry mess, which is exactly what I felt like when I came home the first day.
Arm candy and a bold lip(and the perfect wing that you can't see) for day1...what else?
I'm so thrilled every time I get to sit in the second or the front row because I can totally see all the details-and take awesome photos- and it really feels like it's just me and the model there.
One of the prettiest models, or so my friend who is a professional makeup artist says, of axdw in one of the most chic and elegant dresses we saw.
Vassilis Zoulias presented gorgeous 50's and 60's lines and added plenty of color. Sure works for me ^*
This show reminded me(and the rest of the people there) of the italian designers. Especially the jewelry were just so D&G!
All I wore under my strict blazer was a lace bralet. It goes without saying that my blazer was fully buttoned at all times.
The first day of fashion week was also my bestie's bday so you can guess we went a little cray-cray there. That's just normal behaviour for us though XD
"Feel your heart" program by Coca Cola light. What better thing to do than support the health of women's heart? #wecandothis
My awesome pass that really makes people look at me in a different way. It makes me feel so professional.
I've been obsessed with this hairstyle ever since I saw it on the runway. I even recreated it at home(successfully!)
The white angels at the Kathy Heyndels show were either brides or cousins of Elsa from Frozen.
The black ones had a more hipster vibe.
One of the best shows of the season hands down!
Just me once again blending in the fashion crowd. [random people passing behind me] I'm seriously in love with my outfit from that day.
Just cause it wouldn't be fashion week without delicious drinks for the tired bloggers. 
Oh axdw I'm gonna miss you until next year! Thank you all, my fashion friends/designers/idk...for the great memories and experiences! xx

ALEXANDER WANG x H&M

Hey guys! How are you all? I'm super tired since yesterday was the first day of Athens Exclusive Designers Week. It was great, but my stamina is not at it's best this year. I'll tell you more about Fashion Week in the future. Right now, I wanted to talk to you about the new collection that Alexander Wang designed for H&M.
I know I should have made this post way earlier, but honestly, I didn't have the time. After all, I can say I'm not as impressed as I expected to be. 
I absolutely love Alexander Wang, since he's so young and talented. His clothes combine perfectly casual and dressy, sporty and feminine. But, unfortunately, most of us normal people, can't really afford his designs. So, you can all guess how excited I was when I heard about his upcoming collab with H&M.
I got my first hint that I wasn't going to love it as much as I thought, when I saw Rihanna wearing tights and a matching crop top from the collection. Ten days ago, after the big party, the entire collection was revealed on vogue.co.uk
Don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't like it. In fact, there are some pieces that I would totally wear. But I don't LOVE it. The style is way too masculine, not androgynous chic, but chunky and sporty. I like the fact that it's all black, white and grey, but I wish it was a little more feminine. I get though that he wanted to show the strong, independant woman, the fighter.
The good news is that everyone will know that you are wearing Alexander Wang, since almost every piece says so. I'm really looking forward to seeing the collection in stores, and maybe buying a couple of things.
What do you think? Do you like this collection?
