In embroidered we trust!

Well hello hello there my dolls!

I hope you had a creative and fashionable weekend!
Today I will be focusing on a trend that I’m sure you all know! (if you are a red-carpet watcher you definitely know about it already). EMBROIDERY!
Embellishments, beading and embroidery have been around for a good while now. Good news for me!! I looooveeee embroidered clothes. I was even embroidering my own clothes in the past! I used to decorate them with little flowers, beads or even painting them.
The trend applies to almost anything!! From bags, to shoes, to jackets and of course on all types of fabric. And surprisingly on leather as well! It softens up the “traditionally rebellious” nature of leather as we know it!
Like this skirt I am wearing today. Love at first sight… Look how a simple A-line leather skirt is immediately transformed with embroidered flowers!
I know that I have told you many times there are no rules in dressing as long as it makes you feel good! However, a small piece of advice (always in my opinion). Do not overdo it! One piece at a time! (ok maybe 2 if it’s on a purse or shoes), otherwise your outfit will be too “loud”.

I combined my mini skirt with a tail tuxedo jacket, a piece I got from one of my trips to Brussels and which I love because it’s elegant and more interesting than most of my plain blazer jackets.

So a total black outfit interrupted by a dash of colorful embroidered flowers……

Leather skirt: Stradivarius
Knitted top: Tezenis
Blazer: H&M
Shoes: Zara
Purse: H&M
Earrings: H&M

Hello sweethearts!

I recently attended the presentation of the new WAREHOUSE collection for F/W 2016/17 which was held at 1010 Hall and I would like to share with you their new proposals because I know you will love them! I surely did!

Their new proposals are about the modern city woman and it combines a variety of fabrics such as velvet, glamorous shiny fabrics, knitwear and psychedelic prints! So many styles to choose from and so beautifully presented by gorgeous models!

The new collection consists of beautiful pieces that are so versatile and adaptable to each woman’s personal style that you can create so many individual looks.

I loved the quality of the fabrics! So stylish and elegant!

Another thing I loved about the collection is that you can find clothes for all occasions and that they are so adaptable you can combine them in numerous ways. And this is something that I look for in my outfits. I look for “street style” pieces that I will be able to combine in such ways that I can wear them from day to evening! 

You can find the WAREHOUSE collection exclusively at Debenhams  in Nicosia.Larnaca, Limassol and Paphos


Find everything at: Warehouse Debenhams (Nicosia, Larnaca, Limassol and Paphos)

Till the next one...

Polka dots

Hello again my lovely girls!

Polka dots for you today! The print that our mothers and grandmothers used to drape us in when we were kids. And which we probably hated! Like so many other things that we used to hate as kids but loved as grown ups!

Ok, it might not be the easiest pattern to wear ( it adds on your figure) but it remains a classic Italian-style pattern and that does it for me! Of course there are many versions of polka dot clothes so you have to be a little careful if you don’t want a “cheesy” result!

Sophia Loren is one of my idols and she was nailing the polka dots. She was all about the elegant polka dot midi dresses and high waist trousers with polka dot shirts!
The key to wearing polka dots (without the risk of looking like you are stuck in your 10-year-old self) is to take them from their retro setting into today’s, adding your own touch to it.

Today I tried my version in a short, shirt-like dress in one of my favorite colors, the burgundy. I combined it with my suede ankle boots (ankle boots are making a huge comeback this winter) and I walked the streets of my beloved Florence in confidence!!!

Dress: Beayukmui Firenze 

Ankle boots: H&M

White cardigan: Peacocks
