ZARA Home Spring 2016

More than half of our apartment, the #doukato as I call it, is decorated with ZARA home objects, like pillows, throws, but also kitchen items like forks, glasses and mugs and other small objects here and there. For Spring 2016, ZARA home has launched the most dreamy, french countryside inspired, romantic collection yet. Can't wait to visit the store and go crazy!!

I am actually a color lover, but while redecorating my house since before Christmas (I still am, haven't finished yet) I discovered that white gives some elegance to every space. Once I am done, I will share some photos of the #doukato with you. Till then, I will let you enjoy the beauty of ZARA home's "Versailles" and "Cabinets of Curiosities" edits.

Ever since I started blogging, I have been posting about my favorites on the Award red carpets every season, however, what I really want to know is what YOU think, which one is YOUR favorite and if you agree with my selection. I decided to use a poll app so that you can cast your vote! Since I am not going to post all the looks (this is a personal style blog, not a news site or a fashion portal), I only choose looks that I would wear myself and are very close to my personal style.

There are 10 looks in total, five on the top and five on the bottom of this post. Vote for your favorite down below by ticking on the circle and then clicking "Vote". To view the results click the tab "Results". If you have more than one favorites, if your favorite is not included in my selection or if you disagree with me, write me all about it on the comments section.

Paris Couture Week Spring 2016 // Ralph & Russo

The Spring 2016 Couture collection by Ralph & Russo was coated with Old Hollywood glamour influenced by the 40s, the 50s and the 60s style. Full skirts and dresses with high waists, capes, feathers, drapings, hourglass silhouettes, flowers, embellishments, raffles. Elegance and delicate femininity at its best. I want them all in my closet! Plus the shoes!!

I can totally imagine those pieces on the red carpet stealing the show, like they always do. Tamara Ralph, the creative director of this up and coming British fashion house, is officially my new favorite couturier. Sorry Elie (Saab), Tamara has my heart now.

If you have 15' to spare, watch the catwalk video here. On the move they look even dreamier...

STYΛIANOS // Bridal Collection Fall 2016

A week ago, I was invited to STYΛIANOS Bridal Fall 2016 fashion show "The Roots Within". I had a front row seat and a very good view. All the models stopped in front of me! Looking like fairies and creatures of the forest, they walked up and down the runway wearing heavenly creations in white & mint covered in lace, tulle and silk. Design Highlight: the dresses' backs.

You can go to my YouTube Channel to watch Fay Skorda, special guest of the evening, who closed the show wearing a gown tailored and made especially for her, and the Finale with all the beautiful models spreading the love for the Make-A-Wish foundation.
