It's not what it looks like! I 've tried to be nice and not shop a lot but... oh who am I kidding? I love shopping!

So as the year ends I thought of what I've achieved this year and my aspirations for the new one. Well that was a looong list. In the end I think I should split myself in 3:my geek/programmer/student side,my fashion-lover side and my designer side. That's the only way for me to do all I want to do. Or if not then give me like 48 hours on 1 day.
Well the good news is after the holidays come the SALES! All the things we wanted but thought were overpriced (will still be overpriced but at least) now we'll get them! Any good pieces you have your eyes on? What are you waiting for? The worse part of sales is the sizes...you can never find your size. Oh no correction. the worse part is the crowd. First time I got in a shop during sales and saw the store upside down and a manic crowd searching every pile of clothes I was shocked! And the first time was last February.... I really don't know how I missed that for 20 whole years! It's not like I wasn't shopping during sales.
 But let's leave that behind. Sales or not Santa is coming (or came depending on your country). What will he bring to you? My Santa is on vacations this year :( but I'm getting my driver's licence and I got myself a lovely desktop and shoes and dresses and and and.... so who cares?

Oh wait isn't it tonight that we go out having fun and look all dazzling?  A dear friend of mine proposed an awesome make-up I die to try tonight! More photos here!

Well I've been doing the whole dark lips-vamp look all winter long and since I'll be eating and drinking and kissing people (for happy new year)  I think I should leave my lips to rest today. For the nails I did a dark red with (mirror) gold French so it also matches. Now all that's left is to decide the clothes (ain't that the hardest all the time?

I'll probably not post a photo of my look if I'm not oh but I'll be sleeping all day long tomorrow!

An ideal Christmas gift for special girls who have an opinion and want to stand out? A STATEMENT JEWELLERY!
What is Ninexmuse?Well it is an online paradise for handmade statement jewellery. As you know (or should know) a statement piece can change your whole outfit better than anything else and such pieces can be found anywhere. But it's not your average product.It has all the weird things I like, like dreamy pocket watch necklaces with many designs, or necklaces of cameras and ballerinas.I just LOVE IT!And you would think it's expensive because the work is so good but NO!Actually these are the cheapest handmade jewellery I found.Well, not the cheapest but given the quality and designs the prices are logical and low.I know what my birthday wishlist will be!
Take a look: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ninexmuse?ref=seller_info#

(PS:No I will not be paid for this in any way.I just thought to share my excitement with you)

How does the Athens Fashion Week community celebrates Christmas? They through a marvellous fashion party! Of course I couldn't miss it so I took my friend Sophie who is also a blogger (Your princess is in another castle) and went! Coincidently it was my name-day so I bailed on my family for this event but it was the best way to celebrate!I was with my best friend doing the thing I love (wearing high-heels, going out and having fun)!
 Gorgeous models walking on a long (very very long) catwalk, L'oreal hairstylists styling people from the crowd, a spa named Swan gave away gifts for the lucky winners and dancers and jogglers completed an amazing evening! I was tweeting photos all night while Sophie was taking pictures with her camera (what you see will be from her camera and not from my phone). We ended the night splitting a waffle and then eating Chinese chicken with caramel (don't judge they were calling our names...).



Celebrated my name-day with a fashion show <3
Here is the official video were you can get a quick idea of the whole evening and after follow the pictures!




















































































Christmas Fashion Party!

How does the Athens Fashion Week community celebrates Christmas? They through a marvellous fashion party! Of course I couldn't miss it...
This has been bothering me for a while now. I hear girls that have a perfectly perfect body and look good in the clothes they wear that they wish they were thinner. Well I am considered to be fat (veery fat) in the fashion world, or at least in the runway world. Well I am not a model and I don't really aspire to be one (not that I could even if I wanted :p ) so why should I be skinny as a skeleton? I know girls that are skinny without trying and I say they are lucky but I am not one of them. I can't loose weight that easily and I watch what I eat so I don't gain.
But does that mean I am not aloud to have a fashion blog, or post to lookbook,or be interested in fashion? 
I am new to this and in this small time I have received a lot of negative thoughts about the fact that I do not look like a model. Models are supposed to be this thin so that the clothes fit right on them. Models are empty canvases for the designers to dress and paint and make them the way they want them to be so that the clothes sell. 
But I am not here to sell clothes I am here to say my opinion and my opinion has an a** and thighs and wishes it needed a bigger bra size! 
I am medium/small but not a 0. 0 is not a size and if you are born with normal body figure why should you be required to change it? I've been bullied for my looks enough in my life and I won't tolerate anyone else telling  me how I should look. If someone wants to lose weight because of fashion world clichés then it's wrong. It is silly and barbaric to criticize someone for their dress size whether fat or skinny. 
If the shoe fits wear it!


I don't know about you but this is the highlight of my year!I've been expecting it all year long and I loved it! Here's a bit of what you missed if you didn't see it ! I'm so excited, it was amazing!Each year they manage to do something more to make me want to buy everything! Well the truth is that even without the fashion show this brand has lovely designs and the only drawback is that they don't have stores outside of US and Canada. I want VS in Greece and I'm sure you all feel the same way about your countries! Enough about my babbling let's go to the goods and prepare for a serious fall of your self-esteem (mine went down the sink...).

If you haven't heard it yet then read!Alexander Wang says he is honoured to work with the brand and I am anxious to see the results of this collaboration! Talented Alexander Wang has shown gorgeous work since his first collection in 2007. This winter he insisted on leather, fur,midi skirts and played with black and white.
 

This is exciting!

The press release from Balenciaga:

Paris, 3 December 2012,

Balenciaga and PPR are pleased to announce the appointment of Alexander Wang to the post of Creative Director of the Balenciaga fashion house, as of today.  Alexander Wang has responsibility for designing the brand’s women’s and men’s ready-to-wear and accessories collections, as well as for Balenciaga’s image.

Alongside his new duties at Balenciaga, Alexander Wang will continue his activities with his own, independently-owned fashion house.

"I am deeply honored to embark on this new role for a brand and house that I have such great admiration and respect for", said Alexander Wang.

Isabelle Guichot, President & CEO of Balenciaga, stated: “The Balenciaga fashion house and its staff are proud to welcome Alexander Wang, whose proven talent, modernity and individual and cosmopolitan vision of design will naturally embrace and enrich the unique heritage of this fashion house which will soon be one hundred years old.”

François-Henri Pinault, Chairman and CEO of PPR, added: “Balenciaga is an extraordinary fashion house with inexhaustible potential and it is endowed with a priceless heritage. Alexander Wang will use his creativity and his own research to reinterpret and immortalize the distinctive, modern and extremely innovative style imposed by Cristóbal Balenciaga. "

BALENCIAGAThe Balenciaga fashion house, which has been part of the PPR Group since 2001, is one of the most influential names in fashion. Founded in 1919 by Cristóbal Balenciaga and established in Paris in 1936, it has been behind the biggest trends in fashion from 1930 to 1968.While the brand’s identity is firmly rooted in its highly symbolic prêt-à-porter collections, items of leather, footwear and accessories are also experiencing success worldwide. Among the flagship products of the house, are the collections of handbags. Balenciaga is also focusing on the development of its ready-to-wear collections for men which are successful. The brand has also revived its prestigious past in perfumery with the creation of three new fragrances: Balenciaga Paris, L’Essence and Florabotanica. Highly selective from the start in its choice of distribution outlets, the brand has now developed in an environment that respects its spirit, through its own stores and e-commerce sites, but also through franchised stores and concessions in the top multi-brand boutiques across the world.A coherent plan for the construction of a network of directly-operated stores has been developed in recent years under the direction of its President & CEO since 2007, Isabelle Guichot, which will bring the total number of stores worldwide to 62. In 2012, Balenciaga has strengthened in particular its presence in Asia, opening new stores in mainland China, bringing the total number of stores there to 11 by the end of June 2012. The house is running parallel expansion programmes, both in mature markets and in emerging countries as well as on the internet. Its website, initially launched in France, the United States and the UK, can deliver today in 24 countries.PPRThe PPR Group empowers a coherent ensemble of Luxury and Sport & Lifestyle premium brands, specializing in apparel and accessories, to reach their full growth potential.
