Raiding mom’s VINTAGE closet (at home vintage “shopping”)

So, it’s not that I haven’t been “shopping” at my mom’s closet before, it’s just it was just a few pieces by now. This, oh this was a big “shopping spree” :). I decided to check what she has from a while back and let me tell you something… I found some quite nice pieces.

Some of the pieces I plan on wearing as they are, and some will get a make-over for sure. It’s so surprising how pieces that were on trend 20 years ago, can be worn today and are totally on trend.

I am sure you are all familiar with the SS 2015 trends. It will be all about the boho-romantic looks, the famous “gingham” which is a pattern that I really like. Then you have suede (I am so excited about this trend!), all DENIM everything, floral prints. And don’t you dare put those crop tops and other midriff baring pieces away, because they will be so on trend this season! And last but not least, my very own, personal favorite THE FRINGE! I looove fringe, it reminds me of the 20’s flapper girl and I am all about the 20’s fashion.

Giving you my new vintage pieces 🙂

I GOT NAKED! AND ASOS…

Ok, I have to admit, the title is a bit misleading :). What I meant is that I got the NAKED 2 palette in the mail today (finally!). I know I am a bit late with purchasing this palette but I can’t buy it here, so there’s that. And when I finally ordered it online , I then had to wait for a long time for it to arrive (oh the suspense). Haven’t had the chance to try it yet, but I can’t wait to create my first look using the NAKED 2. It has been all over the internet, every make up lover out there has it, and not to mention YouTube, countless tutorials of looks using this palette. Next purchase: NAKED 3!

And what I also got in the mail today, a pair of amazing little flats from ASOS (actually NEW LOOK but I got them from ASOS :)). I added another pair of gorgeous shoes to this post that I got a few days ago, also from ASOS and can I just say… I AM OBSESSED WITH THEM! I have been loving this oxblood color lately, they are just perfect.

She Wolf of Wall Street

Fitted, tailored, masculine suits, the perfect choice for a woman that likes to get that “power look”. I have mentioned before, I love these gender bender outfits, who says only a man can look good in a suit?! I enjoy being feminine but sometimes you need that strong, almost “boyish” look and you should definitely go for it. Even though most of the time when you think of a suit, the first thought you get is MANLY, I personally find suits to be quite sexy… especially when you add a pair of 12 cm stilettos, to make the outfit complete :).

So go for it ladies! Find the perfect suit for you and work that androgynous  look!

I have to admit, I am kinda obsessed with these MANGO suits, want them, need them, have to have them! 🙂

“I Love Winter” Tag

One of the bloggers I love, Angie, has tagged me to answer to do this “I love Winter” tag. And it’s my pleasure to answer these questions…

1) Favorite Winter Nail Polish?

Even though it’s not some kind of rule for me, during the winter time I prefer to wear dark colored nail polishes. This winter I have been wearing a lot of this plum color  nail polish by”Max factor”  and it’s safe to say… it’s my favorite winter nail polish.

2) Favorite Winter lip product?

Thank you Miley Cyrus for helping me discover the EOS lip balms (remember that “We can’t stop” music video?! :)). This brand is not sold in my country, so I have to order them online. I really like their lip balms. I am the kind of girl that gets attracted by the packaging of products and these ones have the cutest packaging! Needless to mention their great quality and how they make my lips incredibly soft and give me the necessary moisture.

3) Most worn Winter clothing piece?

This winter, I’ve been loving this Zara Knit peplum. It has such a classy look to it and not to mention the gorgeous color and gold thread for that sparkling effect. Love.

4) Most worn Winter accessory?

We have a really cold winter here, so hats are a must. I have been wearing this faux fur hat, a lot. It’s so soft and keeps me warm.

5) Favorite winter scent/candle?

This is not just a favorite for this season, I have been smelling like Givenchy’s “Angel or Demon” for a while now. I tried using a different scent but I keep coming back to my favorite perfume and I don’t plan on changing it. 🙂

6) Favorite Winter beverage?

I am a tea-kind-of-girl. Even though I love the smell of coffee and I like drinking it, my favorite winter drink is definitely… green tea.

7) All time favorite Christmas/Holiday movie?

Of course…

8) Favorite Christmas/Holiday song?

This song always reminds me of the holidays, my favorite one…

9) Favorite Holiday food/treat?

I don’t have just one favorite treat or food for the holidays. I love the traditional dishes we prepare for Christmas here.

10) What is your favorite Christmas Decoration this year?

My favorite Christmas decoration is definitely this “Birth of Christ”…

11) What’s at the top of your Christmas list?

I have already bought almost all the things that were on my Christmas list but one thing that I kinda want to get is the KENZO EYE sweater, so I am excited to add it to my Kenzo collection.

12) What are your plans for the holidays this year?

Holidays are all about family and loved ones. I always spend them with my family and since the Orthodox Christmas in on January 7th… the holidays are still  ON for me :). I would love to go on some fun trip somewhere but that would have to be after the holidays. A place I would love to visit soon is… Paris.

Hit The High Street : MANGO

Almost every time before I go shopping, I check out the online catalogs of the stores I plan to shop in. This not only because I want to see the collections but also because it makes shopping so much easier. You go online, you see what you like and you know what you are going to buy even before you hit the stores.

If you are like me, then you spend hours shopping! To cut the shopping time , I do this online “picking” first.

Here are some of my favorite pieces from the latest “MANGO” collection. Hope you can find something you like and tell me if you actually decide to buy something from this favorites of mine. 🙂
