ELENA FOR STRASS BIJOUX SS14

Let's meet an awesome jewelry brand today!
Strass Bijoux was established about 20 years ago in Greece and ever since they are the perfect representation of feminine style and elegance compared with contemporary handmade design. They have collaborated through the years with clients all over the world and they work hard everyday to satisfy them.
This collection will be available this spring at their store in Paros, Greece. It may sound far, but every year, there are so many tourists that visit them. If you are interested in any of the pieces you can contact them and also check out their facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/pages/Strass-Bijoux/116360721899869?fref=ts
They have a really big selection of items, but we decided to show you only some statement pieces and a couple of more delicate ones. Their full collection can satisfy any difficult taste. There is something for everyone. These will definitely cheer you up and get you in the mood for spring. It might be freezing outside, but all you really need is a colorful necklace to warm things up!
I really want to to thank them for the beautiful photos and their patience with me being an irritating perfectionist(guilty^^)!
Be prepared for some other exciting projects with Strass Bijoux in the future! I can't reveal anything yet, but let's just say that it involves one of my biggest passions(check my previous post hu-hu) I couldn't be more excited!

FASHION DESIGN #3

Happy International Women's Day! I hope you are all happy this special day. It's really important to learn to value ourselves and also to be appreciated by others. People often consider women to be weak and sometimes less important and smart, capable etc. than men. But, in order to make others see who we really are we should, first of all, believe in ourselves and never let others dictate our lives. Every woman is beautiful and she shouldn't feel she is not good enough because she doesn't follow the prototype of the society. Don't give in and just surrender to the materialisation. Being just like everyone else, just another copy of a specific model, is not personality. Embrace your inner goddess and let your true self shine!
This is what I'm trying to do, and also what I want to make my designs look like. Strong and fierce women, independent and beautiful! There is only one man in here and he's actually the only one I've ever sketched! I want to make more in the future but for now he's all alone between the ladies. It might be the day that females rule, but be kind to the poor guys girls!

?MORE OR LESS? #4

?More or less? #4
Another beloved More or less set for today's post! This time, I decided to mix and match different styles. Spring is on its way, but it's still cold outside. This doesn't mean that you can't wear your floral pants or your candy pink heels. The color of these heels is insane! As soon as I saw the Zanotti's, the pair from Zara came to my mind. They are both so awesome and can be worn either day or night, summer or winter, paired with the right outfit. For a warmer look, I would add a pair of opaque black tights under the dress or skirt(if you want me to create an outfit, please leave a comment asking). Just to make myself clear, the two jackets can't be compared. The first one is from real leather, but if you're searching for a more eco friendly choice, without spending too much money, I believe the second one is pretty satisfying. If you insist on buying a leather jacket, you can find one at an affordable price (approximately 100-200€) in almost every store like Mango, Zara, H&M, Topshop etc. 
I love how the heels glam the whole outfit up, which is more casual and relaxed when paired with comfy sneakers. Again, this time, the price difference is pretty shocking, but that's what the combination real leather+18-karat rose gold+designers looks like!

TWIGGY

Today I want to talk to you about one of my style icons, one of my favorite models of all time, Twiggy (Lesley Lawson)! British, started to work as a model while she was still a teenager and she managed to conquer the fashion world and become one of the symbols of the 60's. She became famous for her petite figure and her androgynous style. Big eyes, long lashes, short hair. Her creativeness and sense of fashion made her the inventor of the lashes drawn under the eyes, named after her. What can anyone say for her? It's such a shock to hear people say"I don't know who she is" or "she's ugly"! A legendary icon, a powerful source of inspiration, she is and will always be my favorite!
What do you guys think of her?

NEW BLING-BLING!

Accessories can definitely define and upgrade your everyday look with no effort at all. When it comes to jewellry, just one statement piece or all together, they MUST be there. Today, I decided to show you my newest ones. All from Strass Bijoux, perfect for both summer and winter, and all gold! I used to prefer silver over gold but I've changed my mind. Of course I still adore my silver spikes and my lovely cuffs and pendants, but my current obsession is gold. I am completely in love with this heart pendant! I wear it everyday-it's cute, it's simple and it goes with everything♥ The bracelets are the perfect transformation of the classic pearls in a younger version and look really good compared with the gold infinity bracelet with strass. In the last photo you can see the other products I'm obsessed with. Baby lips lip balm by Maybelline and face cream by Yves Rocher. The truth is that baby lips just came out in Greece and I haven't tried it yet because the package is so adorable to rip it off. I've been using this cream for many years and it is exactly what I need. Since I'm still really young, I want a light product for moisturizing-just a gentle touch on my sensitive skin. The chamomile scent is just so relaxing yet fresh, making this cream perfect to start my day!
What do you think of them? What are your latest obsessions?
