Best of Emmys 2014 // Red Carpet


The 2014 Emmy Awards took place couple of days ago and I was trying to figure out my top 5, including Sarah Hyland, Lizzy Caplan and Kristen Wiig. However, Robin Wright look was in my opinion jaw-dropping: Minimal, Chic, Glamorous and kind of Sexy. So, I decided to leave everyone else out and dedicate this post to her Ralph Lauren white backless tailored long-sleeved jumpsuit. With barely there makeup, her short blonde pixie sleeked to the back and dark red nails, she effortlessly made the classiest appearance of the evening. Unfortunately, there are not many photos of her from that night, so I am sharing one from her arrival and another when she was leaving the hotel, displaying her toned back and gorgeous figure.

Which one was YOUR favorite?

I am back with a new color obsession: Saffron. And for those of you who don't know it, according to wikipedia, is a color that is a tone of golden yellow resembling the color of the tip of the saffron crocus thread, from which the spice saffron is derived. The first recorded use of saffron as a color name in English was in 1200!! In Greek we use a word for it that derives from Crocus which is also the same name of the egg's yolk. 

You can mix it with black, white, beige and gold but I would also dare to wear it with another vibrant color, like royal blue or watermelon pink. What do you think? Should I go for it?

Fall 2014 Prêt-à-Porter // Burberry Prorsum


The best transitional collection from Summer to Fall is definitely the Burberry Prorsum AW2014. All you need to copy the look is five "statement" items:

1. A midi silk long-sleeved dress
2. A pair of heeled open-toe booties
3. A long scarf
4. A large tote
5. And a belt...

...and you are ready to go! Leave your hair and makeup simple and don't forget to wrap the dress and the scarf together with your belt to create the illusion that they are one piece!

Zodiac Circle


Bracelet // c/o Coco & Jagger
Shoes // Stradivarius (old)
Jumpsuit & Clutch// To see what I’m wearing and where to buy it, visit La Grèce J’aime


I am not the kind of person that reads or consults their daily horoscope. Never was. I do believe that people who were born in, let's say, Summer may have some common attitudes, but I never considered someone's zodiac sign a parameter to treat or think about that person accordingly. I believe in a human's uniqueness, choices, instincts, coincidences, even luck but not in signs.

However, when I saw Urania Gazelli's circle clutch with that heavenly turquoise color, the zodiac signs were the least of my concerns! Once again, Urania created a piece of art, a statement clutch that makes you stand out from the crowd even with the most minimalistic outfit. My gold-ish BO2 jumpsuit was the perfect canvas for a very summery Studio54 inspired outfit straight from the late 70s, which I paired with red heels and a gorgeous handmade bracelet.

Marble Palazzo


Top // ZARA
Pants // ZARA
Bag // Vintage (similar here)
Necklace // ZARA (old)
Ring // Accessorize (old)
Shoes // ZARA (old)


While I am on vacation right now with my Duke, enjoying the bright sun and the blue sea of the Aegean, here is an outfit we shot about a week ago. Marble white and ice-y grey match naturally and look perfect for a fresh summer look. Never forget that palazzo pants are always a good idea for a petite girl to look taller and slimmer.

Sorry for the "quicky", but I have to go to the beach now! Follow me on instagram for my Greek summer photos!!
