VFNO Thessaloniki 2012

28 September, 2012

As most of you know, last Tuesday on the 25th we celebrated the 2nd year of Fashion’s Night Out in Thessaloniki as part of the international initiative of Vogue Magazine. This year, my company was my cousin A., Maria from Style Bows, and her best friend Chrysoula. We visited many stores and drunk many cocktails and sparkling wines along the way. It was a really fun night! It was so nice to see so many fashionable people (men & women) on the streets, partying, taking pictures, and generally having fun. It’s something you don’t see very often. My only “disappointment” was that I didn’t have the chance to meet some of the other bloggers of Thessaloniki. It seems that our paths weren’t crossed this time. Let’s hope we will meet each other really soon. I’d love to get to know the girls behind the blogs that I’m reading for so long.

My cousin A. was the photographer of the day night, as I passed my camera to her. All editing was done by me. There were so many people around that I was too shy to take pictures with my camera. Thankfully she was more than happy to help. Thank you so much A.! This post is dedicated to you! 🙂

@ Rania Xanthopoulou on Proxenou Koromila 41.

I really liked the jewellery and the dresses.

Me outside Rania’s store posing with the FNO balloons. Please excuse the extremely messy hair. It was so hot, that I was wearing my sunglasses as a headband after a while, and I didn’t fix my hair after I put my sunglasses on for the photo.

After leaving Rania’s store we crossed the street and took some photos in front of the Luis Vuitton store (that wasn’t participating in FNO) just for fun!

@ Lassani street. Unfortunately we missed the runway show that took place there.

@ Lassani street again.

@ Can I kiss hair salon at Proxenou Koromila 38.

The VFNO balloons for the day again!

@ Style Fax Boutique (by Anna Kapsali) at Proxenou Koromila 19.

We loved the display of Bloom store (at Mitropoleos str. 71) which was full of action figures dressed as S.W.A.T. team members.  So clever!

Again @ Bloom store

Now, as I did last year on my VFNO post, I want to show you the display windows of some stores that didn’t participate in VFNO. I rarely go downtown, so it’s the perfect chance to show you the fabulous shoes I saw.

@ Kalogirou store at Mitropoleos 75.

You should click to enlarge this pic and the next ones to see the full beauty of the shoes.

Miu Miu booties with glittered soles which I loved (@ Kalogirou)

Miu Miu glittered sneakers (@ Kalogirou). Loved them as well!!!

Vince Camuto spiked pumps (@Haralas, Kouskoura 1 & Mitropoleos corner) which reminded me of Christian Louboutin’s Alti Spiked pumps, and they’re on the top of my wishlist right now.

The night ended with a frozen yogurt from Chill Box (Kouskoura 7).

Thank you so much for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post. I’ll be back with a proper outfit post from the FNO, after my usual monthly ones. See you soon, with my month in pics.

  1. Yes, I enjoyed it very much, a great post, I always feel like being there with you! You have the ability of doing that, writing in a great way and showing the pictures that way to us!
    Amaaazing shoe store, loved it!
    And also, I saw your outfit in the previous post, and you look so elegant and thin!
    So, now too! This green top and bag, they are really beautiful!

    • Thank you so much Denise! I always appreciate your comments and especially now that I know how busy you are with your upcoming trip to England.
      I’m glad you like the way I write because sometimes I feel like I’m “talking” too much, as I always do, even in Greek.
      I really wish I could take you shopping in my city, and have many many walks around town together. It would be amazing. And it would also be good for me, to get to know my city better. There are still many places I haven’t visited and I should correct this really soon.
      Filakia polla!

  2. Hey M! The black dress and red peep toe pumps in the window display of style fax are to die for!
    Looks like you had a fab night out and you look great as always. I’m loving green at the moment and it really suits you. I just bought a lovely bottle green winter coat and I’m wearing it already as it’s so cold here in the UK!
    Good company, plenty of shoes and cocktails topped off with delicious looking frozen yogurt – what more could a girl ask for? xx

    • Thank you very much Laura! It was a fun night out. I really enjoyed it.
      The coat sounds amazing, from what you described. But I think it’s too early for coats, especially in Greece. Temperatures have gone up again, and we have summer weather in the end of September. Like, over 30 degrees again. It’s weird but I can’t say that I don’t like it. hehe
      I hope you had a great weekend! 🙂

    • S’euxaristw para poli, na’sai kala! 🙂

  6. Νομίζω αυτό είναι το μόνο post που είδα σχετικά με το FNO στη Θεσσαλονίκη. Πολύ ωραίες φωτογραφίες που δείχνουν πως το fashion crowd στη Θεσσαλονίκη δεν υστερεί σε τίποτα από αυτό της Αθήνας. Έπρεπε μόνο να είμαστε πιο συντονισμένες οι fashion bloggers… 🙂
    (Αν και δεν ανέβασα φωτογραφίες για τεχνικούς λόγους, έκανα μια μικρή αναφορά επί του θέματος το ίδιο βράδυ.)

  7. ΥΣ. Εκείνο το βράδυ απόλαυσα κυρίως τα Notos. Live dj, χαλαρό περιβάλλον, ωραίες προσφορές και οι καινούριες συλλογές ήταν ό, τι πρέπει. Τα events στη Λασσάνη παραήταν busy για το γούστο μου. 🙂
