Casual chic magenta | Outfits

13 January, 2014

A few days ago, Maria of Style Bows, Olympia of Fashion Addict and I, were invited as guests to a local TV show in Thessaloniki to talk about fashion and our blogs. I can’t hide from you, that I was really nervous, because I’m usually a really shy and private person, and till one month ago I hadn’t even told you my name or showed you my face, and I was now invited to a TV show. However, it was a great opportunity, and I couldn’t say no. Plus, I was going to be among friends, and that made the whole experience more special. We had a really nice time, and I really want to thank Kiki Avramidou and Chris Kirlias that invited us, and everyone else on the show. These photos were taken just before we leave for the studio, and I must say that I really loved both the photos and the outfit. This is actually a dress I’m wearing in these pics, worn as a skirt, with a sweater on top to make it more casual. What do you think?

Πριν από μερικές ημέρες, εγώ, η Μαρία από το blog Style Bows, και η Ολυμπία από το blog Fashion Addict, ήμασταν καλεσμένες στην τηλεοπτική εκπομπή  UP όλα στο Βεργίνα Τηλεόραση, όπου μιλήσαμε για τη μόδα και το fashion blogging. Δεν θα σας κρύψω ότι είχα πάρα πολύ άγχος, γιατί γενικά είμαι πολύ ντροπαλό άτομο και ενώ μέχρι πριν ένα μήνα δεν είχα καν αποκαλύψει το όνομα μου και το πρόσωπο μου εδώ στο blog, ξαφνικά τώρα ήμουν καλεσμένη σε τηλεοπτική εκπομπή. Παρόλα αυτά, ήταν μια ευκαιρία που δεν ήθελα να χάσω. Επιπλέον θα ήμουν ανάμεσα σε φίλους, κάτι που έκανε όλη την εμπειρία πιο ιδιαίτερη. Περάσαμε πολύ καλά και θέλω πραγματικά να ευχαριστήσω την Κική Αβραμίδου και τον Χρήστο Κυρλιά που μας κάλεσαν καθώς και όλους τους υπόλοιπους συντελεστές της εκπομπής. Αυτές οι φωτογραφίες τραβήχτηκαν λίγο πριν ξεκινήσουμε για το στούντιο, και πρέπει να σας πω ότι μου άρεσαν πάρα πολύ και αυτές, καθώς και το look. Αυτό που φοράω είναι στην πραγματικότητα ένα αμάνικο φόρεμα, φορεμένο ως φούστα, με ένα λεπτό πουλοβεράκι από πάνω για να το κάνει πιο καθημερινό. Πώς σας φαίνεται;

Me and Maria

  2. Hey M! Happy new year to you, T and all your family. Being on TV must have been so exciting, I’m so happy for you! You look amazing, love that dress as a skirt or dress and you know how I feel about those boots! I can imagine how nervous you were but I’m sure you were fab and before you know it you’ll be a star doing reality TV and selling wedding pics to glossy magazines!
    I really liked your preppy outfit though I could see how much pain you were in. I suffer with my neck and shoulders from working at a computer all week so you have my sympathy, hope you’re fully recovered now. I also love your new scarf so much, you are queen of finding nice tartan- it’s hard to come by and some of it is hideous! So can I watch your debut TV appearance anywhere? Obviously I won’t understand a word of it but I’d still like to watch! Xx

    • Hey Laura! Can’t believe we haven’t talked for that long! Happy New Year to you too! 🙂
      Actually, I was really stressed and nervous, as I’m terribly shy. Talking in public has been one of my biggest fears since I was a child. But it was fun at the same time! 🙂 hehe Oh I wish that to be true one day. Thank you!
      I’m so sorry to hear that. It’s indeed a terrible pain, and I wish it for no one! I couldn’t move properly for days. And you’re right.. working at a computer makes it even worse. That’s why it took so long to go away. I had to work, and at the same time I was trying to sit as little as possible in front of my pc those days. I’m just glad it’s gone now.
      Thank you for saying that! I’m in love with tartan this season, and I know some garments can look hideous some times.
      Oh yes, in fact you CAN watch our interview online. I actually shared the links above, but I didn’t thought any of my foreign readers would be interested in watching it, so I only wrote it in Greek. hehe
      This is the link for the 1st part: and this one for the 2nd part:
      Yes you probably won’t understand what we’re saying, even though some words are English or universal. But thank you for wanting to! 🙂 :*

  3. I loooved the outfit, as I have told you before, and I didn’t know it was a dress, what makes it even more interesting! I loved the color, as you know it is one of my favorite colors, and the top matches the casual-chic-trendy atmosphere very well! Your hair is fabulous! I told you before – today is the day of “I told you” :), that’s your color! Such a nice occasion, I am very glad for that and T. is a sweetie, isn’t he? So supportive, and guess what, a good photographer! (But with that model-muse, evety picture must be great!) Makia!

    • Awww thank you sooo much! <3 He's indeed a sweetie! He even offered to take us to the studio, in order not to take the bus. hehe And you're right. He did a great job with these photos! I loved them. That's why I posted so many! 🙂
      I really loved this dress worn as a skirt. It looks so nice with the sweater on top. Even though I had an outfit in mind that didn't work in real life, and I had to improvise at the last minute, I really loved the result.
      Copper red (or at least red) is going to stay for a long time on my hair, that's for sure. I always wanted to be a redhead and I wanted to change it for so many years. I'm just glad I took the decision to do it, even after such a long time, and that I didn't listen to anyone saying the opposite to me. I was SURE that this red would go perfectly with my skin tone. Wish it stayed vibrant for a longer time though.

      P.S. Sorry I haven't replied to your last email. It's been crazy around here for the past couple of days. I'll probably have time to do it tomorrow...Or at least on Thursday! Makia!

  4. congrats on the feature – i wish i understood greek, haha! i really like this outfit m, the sweater is so cute with the skulls and grey and maroon is always a nice combination. i always love throwing things on top of dresses as it gives your dress a whole new look, just like you did here – how exciting for you!

    • Thank you Stephanie! I think that these kinds of dresses are perfect for layering. I haven’t tried this with others in my closet, but I must remember to try it with a few more. Cause you’re right. It does give them a whole new look. Ah, this sweater actually came with me from Paris, a few years back. It’s H&M, but we didn’t have those here, when I bought it! And it will always remind me of Paris. 🙂

  5. I love that you went for it! I know a few months ago you would have probably passed on that opportunity but I’m so happy you’ve opened the doors for new adventures. I love your fun girly yet kind of edgy look, the skirt is so adorable, just the type I love! Oh and your friend Maria looks like a lot of fun!

    Cee. ♥

    • You’re absolutely right! You know me well by now! I’d have definitely passed on it a few months ago, and if I was invited alone, I would have probably passed on it now too. But I’m glad I didn’t. It was really interesting, and fun, and it’s always nice to experience new things. I should stop being so shy…it keeps me behind, and I hate it.
      It’s actually a dress, worn as a skirt, but I love how it looks, and I’m definitely going to wear it again this way. 🙂

  6. Ιδιαίτερο look! Πρέπει να σου πω ότι νομίζω ότι το σήμα κατατεθέν σου είναι τα υπέροχα μακριά πυρόξανθα (σωστά το λέω?) μαλλιά σου…. εκτός από τα γυαλιά. Συγχαρητήρια σε σένα και τις fellow bloggers για την εμφάνισή σας στην τηλεόραση. Η χρονιά φαίνεται να ξεκίνησε καταπληκτικά!

    • Thank you, thank you, thank you my dear Vanda! I’m so glad you liked it!
      Yes, my boyfriend did all the coding around the site, and I did everything else that didn’t need coding. hehe And of course I designed it first in my mind (and a piece of paper 😛 ) to tell him exactly what I wanted. I also made the new header of the blog, as always.
      Your own real estate website? Wow! That’s sounds amazing! Congrats to you too! All the best for your big project!
      Filakia polla! 🙂
