Lady In Red

Studded Leather Jacket H&M
Zara Dress
Jessica Simpson Shoes
Kem Purse
I am relaxing in my hometown (that means I do nothing all day, but eating huge amounts of food, sleeping 14 hours a day and going out with loving friends!). I am blogging from my sister's computer, so it is a bit difficult for me to regularly respond to your comments, believe me I do my best. Last night I wore that red dress my mother got me as a Christmas present. My mum keeps the Swedish tradition of opening the presents at Christmas Eve, so Santa came early in our home.

Happy holidays everybody!
I am wishing you the best, and remember: happiness lies in small, everyday things.
Share some love, not only through Christmas time, but all year long.

Fresh from the oven!
Today was the first Swap Not Shop Party in Thessaloniki!

Style Matters: At The Gym

Well, when I am out and about in the city, I am quite a people-observer. I usually get inspired, like what I see or even feel like poking those girls/guys, asking them "What were you thinking?" Over the last year, I've turned into a fitness freak, and all these hours walking on the treadmill I could do nothing but look at the people around me. So, according to my hard gained experience, there are some style matters you have to be careful, when exercising:

  1. Sheer Leggings: Please girls, make sure that, when bending, your leggings do not turn into pantyhose. It is not very Chanel to let your underwear show!
  2. Many Accessories: It is nice to wear a ring, a pendant or a nice pair of simple stud earrings, but it is quite a disaster for the rest to hear you jingling, so avoid bangles and many necklaces, gym is not the place to make an accessory statement.
  3. Low-rise Pants: The builder's butt NEVER looked sexy, or at least feminine. 
  4. Destroyed Clothing: You don't need to walk around dressed top-to-toe in Juicy Couture velours tracksuits, but you should avoid by any means holey clothes, over-shortened pants, advertising T-shirts and pyjama stuff (oh, yes, I see those kinds of irrational things every single day).
  5. Towel: Prefer a simple monochrome one, a plain white or a striped one. Avoid whatever your grandmother kept from the 70s. 
  6. Sweat Stains: There are some colors that make sweat stains look even worse. If you do not like the wet look (even worse, the "I peed-on-myself" look), prefer black, dark grey, neutral tones or any kind of color that comes in dry-fit textiles (Nike is a specialist in those).
  7. Heavy Make-up: Usually a concealer, mascara, blush and a lipgloss will do the job. You can also use a thin eyeliner, only in case that you have your eyes on that super-gorgeous gym guy. But, again, you have to be really careful, you do not want your make up melt and look like a clown.
  8. Sunglasses: I am still searching for an answer, why some people keep on wearing shades in the gym, even if there are no sight problems?

(Style Matters is something new -let's call it a column- in Style Nirvana.We are gonna share our points of view over style and other fashion matters. You know, what I enjoy more about blogging, is listening to your opinions! So, if you want me to write about anything in particular, feel free to propose it through commenting or e-mailing me.)

Your turn! What are your style rules for exercising?

With A Little Help From My Training Shoes

Old Leather Jacket
Levi's Self-Customized Jean Jacket
White Tank
Fluorecent Skinny Belt by Monki
Paul Frank Jeans
Nike Skyline Shoes
Studded Bag Gina Tricot
Distressed Scarf by Only
After so many hours of standing in high heels throughout the weekend, I felt like my feet hated me. So, what is better than a pair of airsoles? I bought those Nike ones 3 months ago, and I am usually wearing those at the gym, but that day even my All-Stars seemed to be a pain in the ass. Dear Skylines, I would wear you forever!
Actually, I love sportswear but it is not really obvious in my blog. I spent many hours in training clothes because they are comfy and include that "easygoing" thing, I absolutely adore. So, stay tuned! Something that has to do with that is on the way!

Love you all!

Random Today's Facts
  1. The weather in Greece is awfully hot, I didn't have the chance to wear anything really winter-like yet. 
  2. My legs are full of mosquito bites, and I am constantly putting on Fenistil gel (for God's sake, it's 12/2)
  3. My eyes look like they have a different color (notice pictures 2 and 3). Sorry, but the red eye reduction programme makes my eyes look a bit green. They are brown though, I'm not wearing lenses.
  4. I have no free time at all (as usual), exercising and working suck every glimpse of strength out of me.
  5. Last night, after returning from a party with my friend F., we had a close encounter with a total criminal freak, I am still shocked guys!
  6. I am working on some articles, we are gonna have some fun style-talk through the next days in Style Nirvana! I am always keen on learning your point of view in style matters!
