Color me red: holiday accent

There is something chic and yet quite sultry about wearing red.

A red accessory gives that extra accent to an outfit or if you are feeling the whole red vibe then I think you are going to love the pop of color that it will give to your day. I rarely wear red (wore a red backless dress to a friend’s bachelorette party and then a red jumpsuit on Halloween).

This holiday season I want to incorporate some red lips here and there and I will be in the pursuit of finding the perfect chic red dress.

Here some inspiration for the day:

Fifty shades of grey

I know we are all going to age, eventually grow some grey hair and maybe hate it but lately I have been flirting with the idea of silver hair.

I really like the trend. But then again… I have read tons of articles regarding silver hair maintenance and I am backing down.

Remember my pink ends post? I think that is how far I could go for now…

Some lovely inspiration just in case I change my mind. 🙂

Plum lips: yes please

I am not used to winter.

I try to look stylish but somehow find myself resembling a snowman. Layers and layers and more layers of clothing. But what can I do? I am cold (I can hear my mom’s voice in my head saying «then invest in some heavy-good-quality winter coat»).

So to compensate for the «snowmanish» attire, I try to play with statement makeup. I have fallen in love with the plum lips trend. I had never used it before and the other day I felt bold enough to put some of this dark-colored chic lipstick. Works marvelous. Really, I have done my research and almost everybody looks good with this color of lips.

Since I didn’t know how this was going to turn out, I bought mine from H&M just to try it and I really liked it. Pair with neutral eyes for day and with a bold cat-eye for a night out.

Blue makeup inspiration

In a recent post I share my summer bucket list. I am happy that I’ve already done some of them and I pretend to do them again and again. One of the things that was on the list was to try blue makeup. In that post I also shared this easy tutorial. I gathered some beautiful photos so I can get a little inspired to see which one to try.

Lovely kaftan dress

There I was one day, walking on Halkithiki’s town streets after a long day at the beach, when I saw the most beautiful white kaftan dress I have ever seen. I kid you not when I say it was the most beautiful kaftan dress ever. The fabric was fantastic and when I asked the lady in the store how much it was, I was shocked it was only 30 euros. Since I had no cash I quickly went home to retrieve some money, just to arrive 15 minutes later missing the last kaftan sold to a very nice German lady.

I have tried to purchase something similar ever since but I can’t seem to find the perfect one. I hope next time I go to Greece I will find it…somewhere…I don’t care if I have to haunt down that German lady.

Today’s fashion inspiration is the lovely and airy kaftan dress.

This is similar to the dress I was talking about:

Inspiration of the week: Sneaker Wedges

When I first saw this kind of shoe, I didn’t like it at all. I thought: it was either a wedge or a sneaker. But after I saw this gorgeous spanish blogger’s pick, I fell in love with the trend.

There I was one day on a shopping trip looking at the Isabel Marant’s sneaker prices and had second thoughts about it. So I gave up on them temporarily.  Walking by I saw the Zara window and there they were waiting for me: electric blue sneaker wedges. Fantastic price and the last pair was my size. To make a long story short, I love my little acquisition.

Here they are:

A punch of neon

Nothing reminds me of summer like neon colors do.I love them.

I started using neon nail polish and I really like how colorful my hands look. I also like how a bright pink or a fluorescent yellow can brighten any black outfit!

Bright accesories, colorful shoes and statement dresses can all stand out with a punch of neon.

Hear me roar: leopard print

Prints can get tacky if you don’t wear them wisely. Sometimes they can even look cheap. Certainly you don’t have to spend thousands for a nice piece but you do have to be selective. I love how this print can be mixed with red, emerald-green and the classic black. My inspiration for this week is leopard print.

Do you guys like to wear animal prints or just stick to the basics?
