NEW YORK FASHION WEEK FW14

Unfortunately, I am not able to attend Fashion Week 
abroad this month due to other commitments. This of 
course doesn't mean that I can't be "there" with my eyes 
and mind. I have styled four different outfits so far, for 
the first four days of New York fashion week(starting with 
the forth above and counting down). I know it's really
cold there but I can't help it-spring mood is starting to
take over place in my mind! I played with different colors
and textures, trying to embrace the spring notes in my
brain, but also to keep it warm by adding an oversized coat.
This post is probably the biggest one right now since I also
 chose my favorite looks of the shows to show you, 
from style.comEverything was perfect and I love how 
the designers presented the original moody winter colors
but also included some interesting color blocking and 
some more vibrant shades and exciting material(metallics♥).

FASHION DESIGN #2

I was so thrilled when I read your comments on the previous post about my designs! Thank you so much! Please don't hesitate to leave comments, I absolutely love reading all of them and replying. It feels so good connecting with you. It really means so much to me that you like my work, even if it's not the original thing. I promise that soon I will show you some of it too. I hate the quality of the photos but I love my designs. They're not perfect(and I am a perfectionist) but they are my babies and, especially when I manage to do something I find hard, the satisfaction with the result is twice as big. This first photo has a special place in my heart since it is a sketch of my love, Audrey. I hope you like her, and my other sketches as well. Tell me what you think about my designs and let me know if you have any particular requests for the future!

GOLDEN SHADES

I am so in love with this top even if it doesn't flatter the figure very much. First of all, the color is a little darker than my skin tone and I think it creates a mysterious look. Plus, you can wear it with pretty much anything from fall to spring and, last but not least, it feels great wearing it! This is actually a designer blouse and that's why I wanted to dress it down a little bit. So, I paired it with simple jeans and brown leather boots. To spice it up, I chose this amazing necklace by Strass Bijoux. I would wear a leather jacket or a fur coat to go out. The gold tones in these photos really took my breath away and even thought the outfit is very simple and casual, I believe they add an air of glow to the entire look. Whenever I look at them, Lorde's song Team comes to my mind...I really don't know why since the video clip is way different from the concept of the photos. The song though is lovely. Do you guys like Lorde? And what about my look? Tell me your thoughts!

MORE OR LESS:LEOPARD BAG

More or less:Leopard Bag by ell0oukaa featuring a leopard purse
Here is another MORE OR LESS post, as I promised! This time it's not a complete look but different versions of one item. Lately, I've noticed that leopard bags are EVERYWHERE, from totes, to clutches, to backpacks. It's easy to find one you love but it's really hard to find one that you can actually afford but also has a nice design. So, when I saw this leopard bag from Mango, I knew I had to show it to you. I think it looks so much more expensive than it is and that it can compete without a doubt with the rest of the totes in this set. It has a great size, able to fit all your stuff in it and can really upgrade your look wheather it's simple or more extravagant. It's a day-to-night bag if you compare it with the right accesories and, if you dare, you can hold it pretty much every day. An eye-catcher in a reasonable price...tell me you wheren't searching for it! Tell me if you like it and let me know if you have any #moreorless requests for the future.

FASHION DESIGN

First of all i would like to wish you all a happy month(that's a greek expression but, who cares?)! Let's hope that this month will be full of pleasant surprises and smiles! Together with the beggining of a new month, I want to introduce to you a brand new category, FASHION DESIGN! This means so much to me, since it's not only one of my favorite hobbies, but also something I'd love to do for a living. Ever since I can remember myself, I was into art. As a kid I would spend a large amount of time drawing and sketching. One of our favorite activities with my mum was to design our own clothes for our homemade paper dolls. She has actually studied fashion design so, you can guess what was happening back then! 
I am so passionate about this and I really hope that one day I will be able to make things work the way I want them to. For now, I like to copy anything I find online and, of course,make my own designs aswell. At the moment I really adore copying the designs of  Hayden Williams. He is so talented and not only he has great taste, but he also presents strong, fierce and feminin women instead of copies of the same anorexic prototype. So, here are some of my most recent sketches. I will show you some of my own original designs some day and I will also reveal to you a very special collaboration in the future! Sorry for the bad quality of the photos:/ Tell me what you think!
