Officially, the 4th anniversary of my blog is tomorrow, on the 15th of January, but I usually post on Wednesdays, so I didn’t want to leave my blog without a post, and I decided it was a nice opportunity to celebrate its anniversary for more than 1 day. So today’s post is a celebratory one, with a “birthday” cake and everything. It feels like yesterday that I started blogging but at the same time, it doesn’t. Because I know how much effort I’ve put into this blog, and how much I struggle every day to make it better. Last year, we celebrated my blog’s anniversary with a whole new blog re-design, where we did not just customize a ready-to-install theme, but we built a completely new theme from scratch. When I say we, I mostly mean T., since my knowledge on coding is limited, but credits go to me too, since I gave him the guidelines, and made all the other changes that didn’t require complicated coding. I’m still super content with this theme, so this year, I won’t make big changes. At least not for now… But to celebrate it in a more special way, I have a surprise for you, so better come back tomorrow, on the actual blog anniversary, for it.
This is another look we photographed last month (actually the last one before I took more than a 2-week-break from outfit photos), when the weather was still bearable. It’s the first time I’m wearing these kinds of over-the-knee socks outside, because even though I own them for years, I wasn’t so brave to do so. In my eyes, they can be quite sexy, and I’m not comfortable with looks or even comments from strangers. But this time I decided to find a way to wear them out, and I found that this sweaterdress is the best way to do it, because it’s rather casual and doesn’t leave much skin exposed, due to its length. Paired with my wedge booties, it almost looks as if I’m wearing over-the-knee boots; another trend I never thought would be for me and my bodytype, or even weight. My mom’s old thin belt and my D&G clutch in the same hue were the perfect touch to the look. Do you like it?
Oh my, I think I kept these photos for far too long, but at least I have content to show you, so I should be grateful. We took these photos a little over a month ago, and I loved this outfit, but I kept it in my file a little while longer. This is the 4th and final part of my collaboration with Axel Accessories, and it is actually one of my favorites, along with the green military dress. We shoot 3 looks with Kleoniki that day*, in the cold and the rain (you can even see some raindrops in the pics), so please excuse my bad hair. It was a difficult day for me, for personal reasons too. I’m in love with the print on this shirt, and this beautiful leather skirt, with zippers and quilted details. I find them so stylish, and they went great together with my two-tone pumps (you all seem to love so much 😛 ). This is my take on a chic & stylish look for the office. You know how much I love those, don’t you? Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below. There’s nothing like reading your comments to make my day! 🙂
As promised, I’m back with a new outfit post, and the first one of 2015. We had actually photographed this look, a week before Christmas, but seeing how cold the weather was last week, which resulted in no outfit photos, and how cold it will be from now on again, I’m glad I kept it in “storage”. I wore this look on a rather busy day again. I had to start my day early in the evening, to meet up with Kleoniki, take these photos, go to Mediterranean Cosmos and cover the Christmas event, and then go downtown for the fitting of our Christmas photoshoot dresses (which was followed by the Fashiulous party, so it was a busy day –and night- indeed). There was a lot of layering going on and I felt comfortable in it, so it was a win for me. Do you like my look?
I’m sure by now you’ve already seen our Christmas photoshoot with the Stylishly Beautiful Team. So you’ve already seen this gorgeous dress, but I wanted to show you some close up ones too. So here’s the outfit of the day! This dress stole my heart, even though I was initially going for a beautiful blue skirt. The petticoat underneath it was the cherry on the cake, which made the dress even more special and matched perfectly my Sante pumps (it was actually the first time I was wearing a petticoat). What do you think?
