Emerald


I know emerald isn't the sole player in this post, but everything started with this emerald dress, which I saw randomly, loved instantly, bought almost automatically and decided to test my skin for cold resistance in order to wear in January, so I believe it deserves to be the star of the day! In matching it I went for some lightweight colourblocking with purple Yves Saint Laurent pumps from a recent shopping spree on My Theresa and a yellow velvet Bottega Veneta clutch. We had so much fun during shooting cause it was freezing but I was refusing to put my coat on and hide the dress even for a second! Instead I had to keep moving around which made me look like an idiot most of the time but it gave us some hard laughs! I know I say that a lot but I am crazy in love with this outfit, hope you guys like it too! 





Thanks for reading!

  8. That's truly a very charming frock, Athina, I love the quilted texture. It's very reminiscent of this fabric called Songket, native to my home country Malaysia.

    p/s I confess, I was trying my level best to check for goosebumps on your arms ~ vanity certainly trumps sanity, huh ;D

  9. So lovely Athina.
    I really love how the texture of your clutch works with the pattern of your dress and the purple shoes offset other colors nicely. Great styling!!

  14. Hi Athina,

    You look gorgeous!
    I am wondering if you bought the dress from the Minusey website or in a store? I checked it on the website but they did not have "Emerald" under the color selection, they only have black, so i am wondering if they sold out of the emerald one and left only with the black (they did not show any pictures of it in black) or they just called the Emerald one black (this probably doesn't make sense). Would appreciate very much if you could help.

    Thank you.

    1. Hi Emily, I just had a look on the website. You're right "black" doesn't make any sense. I'm pretty sure that's the one I bought though, I just renamed it to Emerald ;)!

    2. Hi Athina,

      Do you think the dress would look good with a purple Bottega clutch instead (and with black suede pumps)?

      Thank you :)
