Don’t let the fuchsia fool you

This is an actual bucolic post (if you need more proof take a closer look at pic No 4), maybe reinvented, surely feminized but still fashionably undeniable. You  really can’t miss the flora (and fauna) existence stamp in the form of hot pants and the ever so handy knitted sweater (a definite campfire essential).

So for all I know, I could be stacking up on giant pastel marshmallows and heading off to a mountain cabin somewhere.

And maybe I am.

Print On Print (and an Italian imaginary escape)

Getting my print on (and this time I totally behaved, same print, I’ve overcome myself!), getting my cat eye sunnies on, getting my high heeled leather sandals on and as for attitude… definitely ON.

Could easily be sharing a prosecco, seaside, in Positano listening to Pink Martini and admiring well, everything. But then again, I couldn’t, so let’s say I did.

And you came with.

Sharks Love Yellow

Aka if I was floating on an ocean somewhere, chances are you wouldn’t be reading anymore of this blog.

Lucky me my gang of Moorea sharks is really friendly and totally photogenic (pic No2), as well as eternally captured on this pouch. And since I’m -sadly- not visiting the French Polynesia anytime soon, this is all I’ve got to add an exotic vibe to my everyday.

This and coconut water.

For Bedroom and Beyond

All hail the bustier.

Yes, the feminine garment you keep in your top drawer and sporadically wear. Pull it out. Time to get in touch with your well hidden burlesque side while staying stylishly vanguard. Take the crop top trend a step further, yes you can, by putting on your favorite piece of lingerie over a white t-shirt, paired with slouchy pants and a soft colored cardigan, or under a button down knotted in the belly.

Sexy in under 10′.

Mixing Prints Is Good For You

First of all it gives you a certain amount of sartorial freedom and any kind of freedom is good. Secondly, imagine how many crazy combinations you can pull out of your existing -not so boring anymore- wardrobe. 

If you are scared, don’t be. Start with the basics, that’s florals and stripes and work your way to polka dot on animal print. Keep in mind to incorporate similar color families into your look and you’ll be fine. Easier than a pina colada.

Just mix, (shake well) and enjoy.

Ethnic Charm In The Closet

In a closet far far away, where all were living in peace (rather squeezed in like taking the subway during rush hour but pretty content), there was still place for one more.

The ethnic jacket.

Blame it on the colors, blame it on the beading, blame it on its exotic nature, one cannot just pass up on that. Especially when you can easily style it 365 different ways. (Assuming you are willing to wear the same jacket every day for a year.) The point remains that an ethnic piece of clothing adds that unique modish factor to an everyday ensemble and spices up a total black outfit before you can say Jack Robinson.

Walk in closets around the world, make room, there is a new kid in fashion town.

Time To Suit Up!

A dress is good but a suit is better.

And while you should never underestimate the charm of a floral mini dress, a striped suit is more empowering than a pair of 5 inch heels. Ingeniously sexy, dashingly stylish and impeccably classy, this absolute wardrobe staple can work its wondrous way from a job interview (which you will ace!) to a flirtatious cocktail night without breaking one perfectly manicured nail.

Safer than investing in the stock market.

Horse Print Running Wild

Beverly Hills wallpaper (Athens street style edition) on the background and untamed horse print running wild all over my body make for a very naturalistic outfit post of the day.

Keeping the printed jumpsuit ghetto with chunky high heeled sandals (I’m still Filio from the block to quote J.Lo) and the subtle headpiece, just cause accessorizing is too much fun (and it annoys the boys).

(Boys are stupid throw rocks at them.)

Hearts, flowers and bleached hair

It is the season for hearts, flowers and blonder than blonde hair. It is April. My birthday month. A month that will be entirely dedicated to cut offs (no, I don’t care if it’s still chilly outside, I survived icy PFW after all), flower headbands if not total floral looks, crop tops avec quirky prints (so many cute ones, so little time), pastel pink smoothies (strawberry-banana love) and letting the sun work its wonders on my hair (with the help of Mr Fekkai of course).

Moving south.

Kiss me tiger

Touch me tiger when i`m close to you

This is the first love but I have never known

Teach me tiger how to tease you

All of my love
I will give to you
but teach me tiger
or I teach you
tiger… tiger…
