Ms. Summer

First, I was a student. After twelve years of doing so, I turned into a university student. Four years later, I became a teacher myself, one of those who never stop learning. In that simple process, I've learned to count the years differently, from Septembers to Junes, that is. It's been a really difficult but unbelievably creative year. When working with teenagers you come across a wide spectrum of uneasy personalities, you have to cater for every kind of learning needs, you deal with problems that need to be solved here and now.  Despite the challenging workload and the tight schedules, not to mention the exams anxiety (I'll never get out of this, will I?), tomorrow is the last day before my summer break. I have a very busy summer of doing n-o-t-h-i-n-g ahead of me, and I can't wait for it.
I feel blessed and lucky for that wonderful year because I've pushed myself to the limit, I did quite a lot winter excursions, I became an expert at multitasking and I've met so many amazing people that gave me so much love and fun times. I'm happy to know how to enjoy all these different phases of my life. Like this, being an unemloyed houswife for the following four months seems like fun. Emancipation  my ass. Let me get these nails done now.

Love and hugs,
Froso.

New In For Him

Girls, girls, girls. It all seems to be about us; Make-up, clothes, high-heeled shoes. It's even obvious in all these huge departement stores, which usually consist of 4 floors adressed to women, and only 1 or 2 adressed to men. It's not only that most of them hate shopping, but also that they have no fashion stimuli (i.e men's magazines, style blogs, eye for detail in general) to help them construct the perfect wardrobe. And there come the girlfriends/ sisters/ mothers who end up doing the job with their magic wand of style charisma. Ι have always liked men who go for the simple way. Jeans, basic T-shirts, striped shirts, stylish sportswear (God only knows how much I love men in tracksuits) and that kind of clothes that underline an alpha male's personality. I also admire men in more up-to-date outfits, I think though that all these vivid colors and designs just steal their thunder. All in all, you can easily make your boys smile, cause Spartoo.Gr is lately featuring a wide range of clothing, and it is just a click away. Window-shop till you drop!

Franklin & Marshall

It all started with an old blue college sweatshirt, accidentally found in a thrift shop in New York. The certain sweatshirt was meant to be the beginning of the Franklin & Marshall company, which  specializes in college-like sweatshirts, sweatpants, colourful T-shirts and many more styles that promise to make your morning chores, coffee breaks or afternoon walks even more stylish. Its pure materials combine the typical lines of American clothing with Italian quality and finesse. F&M, the quintessential representative of college style, stands for every single value of the youth spirit; active lifestyle, everchanging cultural details and an everlasting focus to anything new and creative.

The company's main goal is quality, and that's why 95% of its garments are strictly produced in Italy, distributed through own-brand stores or through carefully selected multi-brand stores (like Spartoo.Gr) throughout the world. My boyfriend's personal favourite, I can picture him wearing every single one of the hoodie designs, as he spends his winters or chilly afternoons in his burgundy, navy blue, grey and green ones I have chosen for him. Franklin and Marshall's story is a journey between a great entrepreneurial concept and a constant adventure to discover American college style. Discover it yourselves via Spartoo.Gr.

Color Block by Nine West

Nine West, member of the Jones Group, named after the address of its very first shop in 9, West 57th Street in New York, is a very popular fashion house among women worldwidely; its up-to-date designs, along with its amazing sense of refinement have managed to seduce female feet and souls for good. I am an avid supporter of simple lines concerning shoes  and I always go for the simplest designs, I adore neutral colors and luscious leopard designs, as well. Of course, there are these times when you just want to wear your easygoing "uniform" outfit (in my case a pair of ripped jeans and a white T-shirt), that makes you feel like home. In that case, a statement pair of shoes will definately bring out the wow factor, making you look effortlessly elegant. The certain pair is simultaneously simple and eye-catching, cute and walkable. Not to mention that it comes in an array of color combinations, from vivid magenta-red, to simple black and white. What will you go for?

Enjoy your weekend sweethearts!

It's Getting Hot In Here

Ιt's 32 degrees today in Greece, and -although it's still early May- there's no better time to dedicate a whole post to our beloved flat sandals. In my previous shoe post I've talked extensively about my opinion concerning the certain kind of shoe; as I'd been browsing through the endless designs available in Spartoo.Gr, I came across a plethora of new, lovable pairs that I would like to share. Concerning shoes, I'm really into simple lines beacause an understated pair (imagine Dream In Green, Jonac and Casadei) can accompany all your floral, striped, colour-block outfits. On the other way round, a more complicated pair, studded, pearled or ornate, will make your simple-boring-quiet outfits a little more interesting, accessorizing your feet to the fullest. So, simple or extravagant? Before choosing your new pair take a look in your wardrobe. There lies the answer.

Have a lovable time sweethearts!
xoxo,
Froso

CM Wood Sunglasses by Christopher

It is that feeling you get when you meet a really special person, creative and with a razor-sharp sense of humour. That happened to me almost twelve years ago (gosh, we grow old), in my junior high years, when I met Christopher. For two years or so, we had been sharing the same desk, and for the rest of the years we've been sharing moments; Christopher was born and raised in Greece, studied Architecture and Interior Design, and since then, he works as an interior designer, he is the owner of the most stylish wine bar in town, not to mention his amazing style sense that led him to be a self-taught accessory designer. And that is the tiniest of introductions to my charming friend, who has never failed to amaze me with his restless spirit and his passion for whatever he gets himself into.
Eco-friendly sunglasses, made of wood commenced their route as a fad, but they managed to conquer the fashion conscientious worldwidely. I've been really curious on the process of creating a hand-made pair of sunglasses until I saw Christopher working. It needs and extreme sense of dexterity, craftmanship and balance to create a pair, but he seems to have it all. From the choice of the material and the hand-made wood carving, to the insertion of the 100% UVA-UVB protective lenses the process of creation is an amazing procedure worth taking a deep look at.
The best part is that every pair is 100% custom made, to match your personal needs and preferences. That means you have a say from the type / color of wood, to the color of the glass. In other words, you have a small discussion with Christopher, you choose between the twenty or more different designs offered, you adjust the size to the measurements of your own face, you pick the wood, he creates the pair and in the end all you have to do is pick the lense. On the other way round, if you are really hasty, he has some ready-to-wear pairs in stock, but I personally believe that it is worth the wait. How many times will you ever have the chance to be offered a sur mesure piece of eyewear?
After a massive success in Thessaloniki's latest Pillbox Bazaar, where everybody had the ability to have a look at the real thing, so as to ask Christopher for any further information, CM Wood Sunglasses have their own page on Facebook where you can take a look at the designs, contact the designer or keep in touch with any updates. Prices range from 85 to 100 euros tops, depending on the wood or glass type you may choose, and your unique pair will come right at your door without any shipping costs, specially designed to fit your own style needs. Spread the word!
Soon on Etsy.Com
