2013 in pictures


A few hours before we say goodbye to 2013 and it's time for a recap! This blog represents all of the hard work that I started approximately one and a half years ago, without realising how committed I would eventually become. 2013 was my first full blogging year and I couldn't possibly let its last day pass by without putting together a small mash-up of this year in pictures. I can't wait for the new year to begin and I can only hope it's as diverse and full of things as last year was. Have a beautiful New Year's eve everyone and -fingers crossed- the year of your dreams! 


Festive red


There can't be Christmas time without a new red, glamorous dress. This year I decided I had finally overdosed on backless and strapless and opted for the epitome of elegance, a straight line dress, shaped vaguely as a kaftan from Evi Grintela: "The Shirtdress" FW 2013-14 holiday capsule collection. I loved the Chanel feel of this refined fabric and thought it was only natural to pair this dress with glamorous Chanel accessories. Its natural glimmer in the sunlight and the shine of patent leather made for a glamorous Christmas look! I wish everyone a sparkling and shimmering New Year's eve tomorrow! 

Bloggers World 2014


I'm happy to share with everyone the news about a wonderful project I recently took part in! I was lucky to be asked to work with 11 other beautiful bloggers to put together a calendar for 2014. We each took a month and every personalised page introduces our work, story and inspiration, not only in the field of fashion, but also beauty and lifestyle. Bloggers World 2014 has finally been printed in time for the new year and is ready to be shipped worldwide! You can get your copy now on EbayEtsy or by sending an email to lubka.christova@gmail.com with your name and full postage address. So excited!  

Merry Christmas!


Merry Christmas everybody! I hope this day brings you love, joy and happiness! Make sure you spend it with people you care about and spread happy thoughts to everyone around you! Big kiss!




Yeti


Aaah winter, by far my favourite season of the year! I absolutely love the festivities around Christmas, the occasional snow and those long nights by the fireplace with a cup of mint and ginger tea, my fuzziest pair of socks and a blanket! But, most importantly, I like it because I feel I am a much better winter that summer dresser. I can't get enough of layering, winter accessorising and the overall challenge of looking stylish, while in fact what I want to do is wear everything I own in order to protect myself against my oldest enemy, the flu. An enormous, chunky knit jumper or cardigan is my other half during winter: as warm as it gets and so easy to style with a pair of skinny jeans or leggings and some sneakers!   

A day at Luxury Elements


You guys know how addicted I am to jewellery; chic, ethnic, glamorous, punk, you name it! As a person long dedicated to stacking up dozens of jewellery boxes with bling acquisitions from across the globe I was ecstatic at the opportunity to shoot at and put together a review for Luxury Elements, concept jewellery store in the centre of Athens. As you might remember from a brief introduction I made a few weeks ago, Luxury Elements offers a variety of impressive and stylish jewellery made of precious gemstones at very affordable prices and a number of services, from private shopping to international shipping upon request. I spent a few hours in the store last weekend trying on different styles. In this post you will find some of my personal favourites, however, the extent of available choices was truly impossible to capture! Visit their facebook page for more info!

Ho Ho
Since Christmas is around the corner and everyone deserves a little preferential treatment this time of year, all readers who like the facebook page of Luxury Elements will receive a 15% discount on their Christmas shopping! Happy holidays people! 


Gossip girl


I had been wanting to go preppy for a while, inspired by traditional Ralph Lauren campaigns and the fashion surrounding New England leisure activities including but not limited to equestrianism (and thus the gaiter boots where knee-high socks should have been). This Ivy league style blazer is an old Daks London acquisition, one of those items that I always thought one should possess, even if they only get to wear it once a year; it turns heads - take my word for it!  

P.S. Couldn't help but think back to Blair and the minions while shooting this outfit, and thus the title. Kinda wish I also had a nice colourful headband!

Back to basics



Back to basics in black and neutrals for a comfy, laid-back weekend in style. With Christmas shopping sprees around the corner it's good to keep a couple easy going outfits handy for those long mornings and afternoons spent between malls. A pair of stylish flats and a large shopper will go a long way towards making your shopping excursions a bit less of a drag. This practically bottomless Aspinal of London tote has helped me fit the necessities for entire days away from home this past week and I can vouch for its spacial capacities! The weekend look is completed with a pair of boyfriend jeans and a relaxed top like this new collection soft leather panel top from Zara. What's your perfect weekend outfit like?

Boyfriend blazer


If there's one thing I find irrevocably sexy, it's the juxtaposition of a manly structure on a female body. Boyfriend shirts and blazers are my all time favourite garments to stock up in. Thankfully, Isabel Marant, largely known for her baggy/oversized outerwear and more has yet to disappoint us, as her recent H&M collaboration had a lot to offer in that department. For maximum effect I love to match such items with sexy mini skirts/shorts or skinny jeans, cause a boyfriend look is never complete without a hint of curve or bare legs! ;)

Joggers


I'm not gonna lie, I love pants in all of their versions: skinny, high-waist, bootcut, flared, coloured - you name it - most of them very pretty and a little uncomfortable. Looking for something laid-back to wear on a weekend I discovered I only had about a handful of choices. So, I came to realise that in fashion comfort is severely underrated, and thought of ways to put together a relaxed, yet modern, and stylish look, which could possibly keep me going from day to night, without making me feel the need to change. 

Said look, comprised of a pair of Sugarfree Shops leather jogger pants and cropped cable knit sweater did the trick. PVC accessories and details all over added consistency and a bit of glam ;)

Downtown



I've always considered H&M designer collaborations to be a brilliant idea, and ever since I got acquainted with the concept I've made sure to get my hands on a at least a couple of collectible items from each (how quickly they sell out is uncanny and definitely adds to the frenzy). However, there's collaborations and there's Marant. I had the pleasure of reviewing the entire capsule collection at a pre-launch event and I can confidently say this is one of my favourites. Loved the oversized outerwear, baggy printed pants, lace tops, flagship Isabel Marant fringe boots to name a few. In other words, heads up, this is the first from a series of posts dedicated to this collaboration! 

Here I'm wearing the oversized boyfriend coat from the collection with a modern back to school look composed of a graphic Hip and Bone tee, leather pleated skirt and Zara grungy mid calf block heel boots

P.S. You can still find most of Isabel Marant pour H&M on ebay.
