ADIDAS BY MARY KATRANTZOU

I know it's been a long time, or so it feels like. I know I should post more often like I used to. But my schedule is really overwhelming and I don't have the time to do many of the things I love, including writing on my blog. Because it's not just the time you take to write something. It's also the time you need to find an idea, or read about something, do your research, find or create the material you need... If I had more time in my hands I would totally put much more energy to each post, and I will do this in the future for sure. But, for now, I have to go with it. 
Today, I decided to share with you a very exciting collaboration that was revealed a few days ago-in case you missed it. Yes, I'm talking about the collection that Mary Katrantzou designed for Adidas Originals. For those of you who don't know it, Mary Katrantzou is Greek, so it makes me very proud to see her great success. She's one of the few greek designers that make such a huge impact abroad and sell their products at delux sites like Net-a-Porter. 
This one is really one of the hottest collabs of the season, the one the fashion crowd was impatiently waiting, and it didn't let us down. I love how colorful and fun all the pieces are and I love how they mixed and matched different styles and patterns. 
It goes without saying that I would wear all these-I'm not saying that I would look good in all of them but I would certainly give it a try! My favorite ones are the dress, the top and the skirt at the header and the black-purple jacket. I know, I'm predictable.
Anyways, enjoy ;)

VENUS OVER WATER

Hello everyone! How are you? I hope that your weekend is going great so far. Today, I wanted to talk to you about a very special brand, Venus Over Water.
It's a fashion brand created by Lucia Eastman. Lucia is a sustainable designer, supporting the women, and fabric manufacturers in Africa, through fair trade. She manages to incorporate her ethnic side and her memories from Ghana to a contemporary 21st century look, all designed for the modern woman. 
It's designed for all of you, real women with a real schedule. If you want to manage everything from your work to your family and friends but still be stylish and experiment with interesting fabrics and colors while keeping it comfy and chic, then this brand is for you. It doesn't mean that because you are having an overloaded program you should let this affect your style. 
All the pieces are designed to keep you comfortable all day long, from early morning meetings to your night-out. Versatile and eye-catching with vintage cuts, these clothes are an all-in-one and completely perfect for all the women who like to experiment.
Personally, I really like these clothes and I would definitely wear them. Some of you might say that they don't fit my style that much, but you couldn't be more wrong. I love to try new things and I already have in mind many different ways to style some of these pieces. It's all about balancing the elements the best way possible.

KYLIE JENNER INSTA-STYLE

WARNING: This is not one more post about Kylie Jenner's lips. Thank youXD.
Hey guys! How are you all? I'm feeling a little sick today but I hope that it will be gone by tomorrow. I say it's my punishment for having way too much on Friday and during the weekend. But who knows?
I've been meaning to make this post a long time now, but something always got in the way. Or maybe it was just me worrying about your response on it. I know that a lot of  people criticise "The Kardashians" and that just as many worship them. But, you see, this post is not about their lifestyle, the plastic surgeries or the scandals. It's about style. And I believe that we can all agree that Kylie Jenner's got it. There is a reason that so many girls are trying to copy her looks these days, after all. 
She caught my attention because of her famous LIPS. I am sure you've seen a tutorial or a ten(thousand) on how to make your lips like hers. As a fashion and beauty blogger, it's my job to pay attention to stuff like that. I thought though that there is no need in talking about her lips AGAIN. All I'm going to say is that any nude-dark pink-mauve-brown matte colors(preferably combined) are her thing. If you want more, then just go ahead and type "kylie lips" on Youtube.

Now, let's talk about the most distinctive things of Kylie's style.
First of all, I'm sure you've noticed her eyebrows. I know I'm stating the obvious, but these bad boys are on flick and you can't deny it. I think that probably people decided that it's not that easy to create the "Cara eyebrows" if you don't have a strong natural shape to back you up. So, they went for Kylie, whose brows are much easier to imitate. 

Next are the nails. I've been drooling over her long artificial nails for a while now. Usually I am not a big fan because they look just too tacky and overloaded, but hers are so simple and chic most of the time. It's actually hard to find a chic set of nails in stores. They all have glitter, prints, 3D stuff on etc...not really my thing.
Moving on to the accessories, Kylie is rocking her stack of the "Love bracelets" from Cartier. You could say it's pretty easy since they are extremely versatile and timeless. But she also wears some cute chokers, or stacks dainty necklaces and bracelets and she also loves rings(chunky or more delicate ones). I want that skull one so, so bad. Her thing for really big sunglasses and tons of earrings is obvious. I guess false lashes could be described as an accessory too, since it's clear that it's her favorite one.
Her style in general could be described as grungy chic meets sexy glam. She lives by crop tops, leather and high-waisted clothes, anything oversized, like a flannel or a kimono and, of course,  high, high heels.

She chopped her hair and dyed the tips blue-green and then she changed that to her usual dark color. Currently she has long extensions on and dyed her hair in a silver-grey color. 
So, this was it for Kylie Jenner's style. I made this post not because I admire her that much or because I think that we should all copy her, but because I like her style and I thought that it's quiet close to mine. I honestly don't care if she has had lip injections or anything, but I would love it of everybody could just stop the hating. Not just on her, but on everybody. There's nothing for you to gain and if you send negative vibes, negative vibes will come back to you. Just be nice to people:)
I know this post was huge but since I don't post that often I feel like I need to say more. Anyway I hope you liked it:D

QUEEN OF GOLD-HALLOWEEN 2014

Queen of gold-Halloween 2014
Happy Halloween everyone! I know that technically it's over here since it's already November 1st(so have a nice month y'all ^^). But, we don't celebrate halloween here in Greece anyway. We have a similar holiday where everyone is dressing up and stuff around February though. But, I know that a lot of my readers are from the US, so I thought I should show you what my costume would be. I already made a post with an exclusive nail art tutorial where I collaborated with Julep, so you can check it out here in case you missed it.
About my costume now. I know that some people go for something really spooky and disgusting on Halloween, but this year I decided I wanted to do something a little more, well, me. I've been obsessed with gold these past few months, so this look is probably the perfect fit for me(plus I think that it would look amazing with my hair). 
This Oscar de la Renta gown is simply out of this world. A real work of art that belongs more to a museum than inside someone's closet. It's so gorgeous and mysterious and embraces all the golden accents without looking tacky. The shoes had to be Jimmy Choo, since he's one of the few that can make all that shiny material look chic and expensive.That mask from etsy gives that air of an old venetian ball to the look. The Versace earrings blend perfectly with the italian vibe of the costume somehow without being overwhelming. I think that the Trick-Treat Charlotte Olympia clutch was made for this look, and it kinda balances the whole gold thing. Gold nails by Guerlain and golden liner by Urban Decay and we are good to go!
I am absolutely in love with this outfit and I really wish I could afford it. All together the pieces cost almost 15.000€ which is beyond the limit of "out of reach". But, you know, weird things happen on Halloween, so maybe my fairy-god-mother will show and transform me into the Queen of Gold with her magic wand.
If not, consider this look as a tribute to the late Oscar de la Renta. May this incredibly talented man rest in peace.
What do you guys think of my Halloween look? What was your costume this year?
ps. this is a photo I made specially for the day(sorry) XD
