Do It Like Christophe!

Divided Studded Perfecto
White Vest
Studded Belt by JC
Black Waistcoat
Military Pants

Christophe Decarnin is, since 2005, the head designer of Balmain. His style has always been a point of reference for me, because of its dishabille charm. He is the man who managed to make 1.500$ T-shirts to sell like hot cakes, making Balmain clothes the trademark of the super cool girls. Every single time a new Balmain collection is on the runway, I always gasp in front of my computer screen. Above all, I love his personal style, the fact of knowing how amazing he is and, still, not giving a damn. Although I may never be able to afford his insanely expensive clothes, I always consider him a rich fountain of inspiration for my personal style. If I could meet one fashion designer in my life, I wish it would be him. 

So, which fashion designer is the one that influences you the most?

In A Rosy Mood

Zara Blouse
Fornarina Jeans
Spring has always been my favorite time of the year. The atmosphere smells like flowers (even downtown) and we, girls, put on our floral pieces. These photos were taken at my apartment, yesterday morning, just before leaving for the university, and those messy hair are the result of sleeping right after bath! And of course I am wearing my new bracelet, that I really love (especially when I know that a friend of mine made it with her own hands!).

Surprise for you!
I talked with Niki yesterday, and she gave me 30% off, for every reader of Style Nirvana!
All you have to do is to write DELUXE30 when checking out. Take a look at her designs HERE.

I have to give a big hug to the amazing Angelina and to the fabulous Mika for giving me that award, love you girls, thanks for being there!
Many kisses until my next post, 
love you all,

Proud As A Peacock

Brown Tunic Naf Naf
Jean Shorts
Zara Shoes
Corset Belt
Peacock Earrings by Nikideluxe
Hello loves!
There are some times that I am not in a real mood of getting dressed up. At those times, all I am craving for is a "W-O-W" piece of accessory that will individualize my outfit. Just like those kick-ass peacock earrings, designed by my friend Niki, that made my heart beat faster!

Niki is a promising fashion designer, living in Lund, Sweden. I met her last summer, during her debut collection in Greece and I was amazed by her creativity and passion. A year ago she started having her on-line shop, selling many handmade pieces of clothing and jewelry, some of  them featured above. Since then, I have worn many of her designs, the latest one being those earrings and the rose bracelet you can see in the last picture (outfit post is on the road!). Are they lovely, or what?

I am waiting for your stylish feedback! Many many kisses!

Gap Hoodie
H&M Vest
Nike Sweatpants
White All-Stars
Max&Co Yellow Purse

It has been a really demanding week, and thank God weekend is so close! I took those pictures last week, when we visited my super exotic village in North Greece (just kidding, I think that place has not entered the civilized world yet)! I really enjoy wearing sweatpants, they make me feel so comfortable and free, although I L-O-V-E jeans, from now to then they seem to oppress my body. 

I wanna thank you all for being there, there's nothing better for me than reading your comments through the day. You give me tons of inspiration and you help me learn amazing things through your blogs, it almost feels like having friends from around the globe, and that is so cool!

I am a proud owner of 2 more awards! A big thanks to Maddie from Wardrobe Recycle (visit her blog, she has so many great ideas) and a big hug to Post2.Soo from one of the best Greek beauty blogs (if you know Greek, you will be amazed by her beauty tips!).

Many kisses again, love you all!

Hello there! Yesterday night I got back home, after two weeks of Easter vacation, and I couldn't be happier. Although I spent 5 hours cleaning (Monica Geller is my cousin), right now I am ready to jump off to my super-cozy bed and have a nice sleep. Tomorrow I start working again, but I really enjoy being busy, so that is not a problem at all! 

I would like to say a big thanks to The Looking Glass, for giving me the "Beautiful Blogger" award, thank you sweetheart, you are amazing!

Many kisses, 

PS: QUESTION, GIRLS!!!! Can you suggest me THE BEST body exfoliator EVER? Thanks.

15 Ways to Wear a Scarf

The Protagonist: Patricia Field New York Scarf

They say that if you want to learn how to wear a scarf, sit in a French coffee shop and observe French women. Scarves are considered to be a great fashion investment (I couldn't agree more). Prefer silk ones, in a size of 90/90 cm. I intentionaly avoided to include the headband, bandana and hippie use because I thought that they would not look good, pictured without the proper outfit.
If you have anything new to propose, let me know!

What is YOUR favourite way to wear silk scarves?

Madame Butterfly

Pink Suede Jacket
White Vest Top
Diesel Boyfriend Jeans
White All-Stars
Carrera Sunglasses
Louis Vuitton Speedy 40
H&M Butterfly Ring
Hello everybody. I already got bored by having nothing to do in a whole week. I can't wait to get back to my stressful everyday life. Yesterday night I went to the opening of a very stylish bar, decorated by my most tasteful friend, C. Everything was amazing, and I have to say that I appreciated once again his enormous talent and sense of style. 

I bought this jacket in Sweden, from the best-best-best shopping spot in Gothenburg, last summer and I really love it, especially combined with those original boyfriend jeans, stolen from a very special man (thanks J.), and are part of my next DIY project. You will be amazed by how much they are gonna change! I am still working on it, though, so be patient!

What about you guys, did something special happen during your Easter holidays?

Kisses and Hugs,

Hello lovelies! Yesterday I had to paint the Easter eggs red, unfortunately they turned out pink. I don't know why, but they seem pretty funny.  In a while I am going to bake some Easter cookies, I hope the results will be better.

I was tagged by La Boheme to answer those 20 questions. Here we go:
  1. What can't you leave the house without? Shoes, I guess!
  2. Favorite make-up brand? Mac and Lancome.
  3. Favorite flower? Jasmines and Lilacs.
  4. Favorite clothing store? Swedish H&M, it has nothing to do with the Greek ones!
  5. Favorite perfume? Chloe, I think that it smells "me".
  6. Heels or flats? Depends on the occasion.
  7. Do you make good grades? Certainly, yes. 
  8. Favorite colors? Purple.
  9. Do you drink energy drinks? Not anymore, I cannot sleep at nights.
  10. Do you drink juice? Only if it is freshly squeezed.
  11. Do you like swiming? I am not a big fan.
  12. Do you eat fries with a fork? Who does?
  13. Favorite moisturizer? Dove Supreme Silk.
  14. Do you want to get married? Only if it is in Vegas. I  do not like the whole thing.
  15. Do you get mad easily? You have no idea! (but I forget it at the same time!)
  16. Are you into ghost-hunting? Not at all.
  17. Any phobias? The dentist.
  18. Do you bite your nails? I never did.
  19. Have you ever had a near death experience? Only in my dreams.
  20. Do you drink coffee? Only until midday. But I drink a lot!

I really enjoy answering every kind of question, so feel free to ask me anything that comes across your mind!

Many many hugs, keep on commenting!
Happy Easter holidays, to those who celebrate Easter.
