Spring Is Near

I bet I am not the only one who steps into a shop during sales time, and always-always-always finds the New Collections way more shiny that the winter ones. Every single time I'll look at them, touch them, try them on and buy girly floral pieces in the middle of January. Spartoo.Gr offers a great range of sales in shoes, bags and currently added a clothes feature that I would strongly advise you to pay close attention to, as a -60% in a quality pair of boots shall never be scorned by a frugal fashionista, but the new lines can make you smile and dream of summery strollings and spring excursions in light clothes. Black, gold, checked or studded, all of the pairs featured above are my personal favorites and the ones I would surely choose to add in my shoe closet. There are many new lines to come yet, but a little window shopping does no harm, right? Enjoy the winter sunshines, and start dreaming of Spring. It's closer than you think.

DIY alert

A tube top. Some spike studs... et VoilĂ !!! Nothing really groundbreaking, but I loved the way this DIY top peeked out of my unbuttoned tuxedo, in an insanely sexy, yet subtle way. A bra would be too much, so, I had to make my way through it.

Big kiss guys, 
love you.

Keds Cuties Spring-Summer '13

I usually love something, in case it's closely connected to my childhood.  Most of us used to mark the beginning of spring with the devouring of the first ice cream. I used to connect my summer countdown with my beloved mum, buying her annual new pair of white Keds. I mean, e-v-e-r-y single year, she would buy a new, strictly white pair to wear when she ran behind me and my little sister, without feeling restricted. Having made such a close connection of the brand to one of my most precious people in the globe, it's no wonder I became an avid fan of the famous easygoing spirit of Keds. See, I am more on the All Star side, but these beauties look so cute and summery, don't they?
This is one of the most extravagant, cute and -at the same time- simple pair, featured in the new collection. The array of colors and designs is literally endless, and the prices for such a classic are unbelievably low. Especially when taking into consideration the HUGE Spartoo sales, going up to -60%. That is, you can buy a pair of the previous collection for almost a blue note (20 euros or so). I am not sure which one to choose yet, see, I'm a leopard print sucker, but I adore the magenta version as well. As you can understand, mum unintentionally influenced my preference, but surely NOT made me stay on the safe side of her classic white pair. Seriously, which one?

Express yourselves in the most creative way.
Big kiss,

The Correct Biker by Koah

Urban lifestyle demands comfort. Comfort demands style. Style has to include quality. Quality means correct choices. When it comes to biker boots, Koah is definitely the brand to be. Their sturdy leather (you know that kind of expensive leather that looks more beautiful as the time goes by, right?), in connection with that amazing hardware that never gets rusty, constitute the perfect biker boot. Maybe the brand is not widely known, but after a thorough research I have no better option to propose, keeping in mind that I really love that easygoing sense of style biker boots give to girls.

Styled with denim, black thick tights, leatherette leggings or floral dresses (in case you are on the bold side), to be honest, I believe they would look good with anything. Just make sure they are made of the finest materials, as they are not considered a seasonal item. Biker boots will be in even when they're out, and all you need is a classic pair that will grow old gracefully. You don't have to break the bank as it's sales time, and Spartoo.Gr offers some great deals (from -70% to -20% off) that will give you the ability to buy an extra dress to pair them beautifully. Sales mood on girls, give it a go!

Happy New Year Lovelies!
When I was a little girl, I used to be really sad every New Year's Eve. Everybody seemed very glad to kick out the old year, to salute the new one; note that I have always pictured the previous year as an old man, maybe because of a traditional greek Christmas song, my therapist hasn't decided yet. Having grown up, not much has changed. I make new friends, and I feel bad about my old ones. I go to a new place, and I feel bad when facing the owners of the old place I used to go. I buy a bag and I carry the old one, cause I don't wan't it to feel neglected and so on. But as the years go by and I get older and -keeping my fingers crossed- wiser, one thing is making me feel secure and mature. The realization that I was never perfect and that I never gonna be. Neither do I want to.

Just because my lack of perfection, I never write down any New Year Resolutions. I am a Gemini with an Aquarius rising after all, my sense of self-control is broken. 2012 has been one of the worst years of my life (similar to 2009 I guess), but it has taught me the hell out of a lesson; flaws have to be embraced, not seeking to be vanished. I will always eat more than I need to, I am always the one who gets really attached to the ones I love, I will always say that "I'll never do that again" but will eventually do it, I am the one that will love like hell people who were proven to be unworthy, I will always make wrong choices and get grumpy about it, I will pretend to be strong whereas I am really weak, I will always have huge fights with my mum and never say  that I'm sorry, I'll always feel guilty for neglecting people I adore, I will always be grumpy/crazy/bipolar with boyfriends, I'll be the one who says "I don't wanna talk to you" and call you back to ask why you didn't call. Fuck it guys, perfection is boring. Be silly, be moody, be crazy, be kind, try to get what you want, have the guts to pursue your dreams, make people around you happy just because you exist, make the world a better place.

I don't know whether 2013 will be good or not, but I am really optimistic.
Hug the ones you love and and love their flaws as well.

Moving forward, let it be glamorous.
Welcome #2013.
