Connect the Dots

Skirt // Choies
Clutch // ASOS
Heels // Kurt Geiger (old, similar here)
Blouse // ZARA (similar here)

Things happen in life that you cannot explain. Your life. And they can change your habits, your mentality even your personality. You might feel that it was your fault, but you don't really know what you actually did and you keep bearing an unbearable burden that you did something very bad. A piece is missing and for almost a lifetime you keep thinking about it. You terribly want to fix this but you can't...

Then suddenly a window opens and the light comes in and breaks the darkness. The piece that was missing is right in front of you, you just have to pick it up and put it back in its place. You connect the dots and everything is explained. The circle is closed and you are in peace because you now know what happened, what caused it (WHO in my case). And you are happy again, because life was kind to you and you were lucky enough to fix what was damaged.

To cut the long story short, a very important person that I loved and cherished and missed terribly for 18 years is back into my life... And I am so happy that I wanted to share it with you!

Scarlet Red // *Twinkle Collection*

Still wondering what to wear to that Christmas party you're invited?

Bill Blass has the answer for you: "When in doubt, wear Red!"

Girls that really want to make a statement with their looks, already know that red is the best color to turn heads and attract all eyes. Red is the most stunning color, has presence and overflows with energy. It boosts your mood, you feel more confident and has a distinct effect on the people who see it.

However, this doesn't mean you cannot wear it again. Red is a very bright and festive color that you can wear with black, white, grey and metallics not only for the Holiday season but also many other occasions: Birthdays and other Parties, Ballet Night Out, Cocktails with the BFFs, Young Moms Palydate and many more. Ask away and I am here to help you!!

*Scarlet Red* has 4 layers of deep red tulle on top and 3 layers of light grey tulle underneath. Comes with inner lining in black and, like all *Twinkle* skirts, is handcrafted by Joanna Misseli.

Tulle Inspiration // Sarah Jessica Parker

All Hail the Queen of Tulle, her majesty, Sarah Jessica Parker!

As Carrie Bradshaw in "Sex and the City", she re-invented how adult women wear tutu skirts, not only as wedding gowns, but also during the day with a tank top or for a night at the ballet. Along with her magazine covers and her personal appearances outside the show she managed to banish the cliché "tulle skirts are ONLY for little girls" from our shopping vocabulary! And I thank her for that from the bottom of my heart...

"Romantic" is actually a style and it does exist I can guarantee you that! And derives from the movement of Romanticism, emphasizing on the individual's expression of emotion and imagination [...] and rebelling against established social rules and conventions. In my opinion, anyone can wear a tulle skirt, as long as they create an outfit relevant to their age, personal style and situation.

Don't hesitate to ask me how to dress the tulle skirt up or down, I can help you through it, I am here for you!

Sparkly Grey // *Twinkle Collection*

It's been almost a week that my *Twinkle* Tulle Skirt Collection was launched. Your sweet thoughts and lovely comments are so precious to me and I am so happy that you have embraced and support it so much!

In this post I would like to share some details about the skirts:

>> Every single skirt is handcrafted, tulle by tulle, in Greece, with high quality materials, by Joanna Misseli. All you have to do is tell us the color you desire and your waist's exact measurements and we will make it for you.

>> All three designs have 7 layers of tulle and come with inner lining. We wanted them to be as fluffier as possible and look rich & princess-y.

>> Their length from the waist down is 70cm. Midi skirts are easier to wear for every age and any occasion.

>> They all have a discreet silver twinkling stud on the back, which is the collection's trademark.

Unpublished photos of *Sparkly Grey* are featured in this post, showing this sweet and romantic skirt from more angles. There are two more posts planned to follow with shopping tips and a step-by-step guide for boyfriends (!), featuring *Scarlet Red* and *Foamy Black*. Stay tuned!

♪♫♪ Stars Shining... ♫♪♫

Skirt // Chicwish
Star Clutch // Chicwish
Heels // ZARA (old, similar here)
Top // H&M (old, similar here)
Earrings // Accessorize (similar here)

(click on the link above to listen to the song while reading the post and looking at the photos)

Every year during Christmas time, that song plays in loop inside my head. No wonder why Ella's & Louis's divine voices inspired me to create today's outfit... A sequined top, a star clutch, a skirt named "Bling Bling" and a pair of metallic gold heeled sandals allowed me to create a shiny & bright look, perfect for this season's parties. Because, if you don't shine like a star during Christmas, then when?
