How To: The Perfect Preppy Chic a la Blair Waldorf

Hello ladies and gents,

How are you? It feels strange publishing a fashion post after recent events...maybe all of us fashion enthusiasts can use fashion as a healing method. I know, it sounds ridiculous to some, but I think whichever way one chooses in order to cope is absolutely fine by my books. For some people it's lighting a candle, for others it's listening to music and for some of us it's putting our best look forward. Sometimes bravery and confidence and strength need a little boost, which can start from the outside. Put your lipstick on, put a smile on and you will get through the day.

Fashion and beauty are definitely not the panacea to the world's problems but they can be helpful to those who find refuge in them in order to feel strong again. That's not a bad thing, and it should not be demonized. So yeah, Blair Waldorf's looks are hardly relevant to what's been happening but they're something to help me take my mind off things for now. Just for now.

I know this isn't how you would expect this post to start but then again, I couldn't not acknowledge what's happened and how it has affected me because it has. I don't want to pretend it didn't and I don't want to feel ashamed for posting today. I'm sure most of you would understand. You're here too reading this, after all.

Celebrity Style: 6 Looks To Try This Fall

Hello dolls,

Amid the Fashion Month frenzy, I decided to spice it up and post something different for you today. I think during this time of the year, when it's not that warm but it's not that cold either, we're often wondering what to wear. So in hopes that I might be useful to you, I decided to provide you with some inspiration.

Let's jump right in:


Gigi Hadid, a new obsession of mine, sports the perfect urban chic combo: a drapey black trench, a leather pencil skirt, a simple tee and t-strap heels. It's timeless, elegant and perfectly in line with the city vibes.

Best Of: NYFW

Hello everyone,

How is Fall treating you so far? Is it chilly enough for a Pumpkin Spice Latte yet? Are you making a wishlist for that cute coat and those 70s peasant blouses? I know I am, even though I still got the A/C on. I guess the heat doesn't want us to part ways just yet. 

September is all about NYFW. It's the most exciting month for Fashion. Every fashion person in the world is onto a race to check out the new collections at the Runway segment of (since is no more - insert sad emoji here), catch a glimpse of what the A-list attendees are wearing, and just get a feel of that New York air.

Fashion In Film: 4 Leading Ladies, 8 Iconic Films

Hello world,

How are ya feeling? Have you got these end-of-summer blues? Not me. I can't wait for a new and reproductive year as well as re-vamping my Fall/Winter style. Like Fitzerald says "life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall" and I couldn't agree more.

Each Fall we get the chance to make a new beginning, set some goals, prepare ourselves for the busy winter days. The idleness of summer has worn me out. It was a fantastic summer, I'm not complaining, but I'm not too sad to let it go. I'm so ready for hot tea, warm blankets, scarves, tights, Christmas, candles and cocooning. I'm all about that life.

Lately I've been watching a ton of old movies. I've got that nostalgia for those times that I never knew but I've only heard about through my parents' and grandmother's stories (RIP grandma <3). I'm so intrigued to delve into the past eras and get a taste of their aesthetic, music, customs, morals, ideas. Through these films, I've been admiring Deneuve's golden locks, Audrey's doe-eyes, Hitchcock's suspense, Irene Dunne's humor, Gregory Peck's handsomeness, Cary Grant's elegance, Simon & Garfunkel's music and so much more.

Vacation-Ready: 7 Covetable Looks

Hello my friends,

Today's post is a desperate effort for me to get my mind off of things. For those who don't know, I live in Greece, and we're facing some real hard times. Today is a day that will go down in history. If you've been following the world news then you must be acquainted with the situation here.

I don't want to get political right now, I've expressed my views via tumblr and twitter but this is not the place for that. Some of you may wonder, with everything that's happening to your country how do you have the desire to talk about such frivolous and vapid things like fashion, vacations and shopping?

You have to keep in mind that this website is international and it is directed to people from all around the world. That has always been my intent: to keep it open and accessible to everyone and that's why it isn't written in my mother language (I've always felt more at ease writing in English anyway). I know that not posting today wouldn't hurt anyone but as you can see I haven't updated this blog in a while. I needed to do it today because I need to get away. I need to have hope. I need to interact with people who don't have the same worries as me. I've been discussing politics 24/7 with the people around me and on social media, trying to get my point across, trying to make my voice heard in this madness. I did what I had to. Today is going to be a long day. If what it takes for me to get through it is to talk about shoes and sunscreen, then so be it.
