BONOBOS

Hi guys! How are you? I hope that your week was great and that you are all in an amazing mood for the weekend!
Today's post is the very first of it's kind on my blog. I know you guessed it from the header. It's men's fashion! I never actually thought of styling mens clothes for my blog, or for any other occasion for that matter. Ever since I was a little girl my male barbie dolls always had one single outfit that never changed, while my female dolls had more clothes than I did. So, I saw a challenge. And, I'm telling you, it was so fun!
The truth is I always find myself thinking of things that men I see on the street could wear to look great. But apart from the menswear inspired pieces that I occasionally add to my style, I only visit the men's section to buy presents for my friends.

For those of you who haven't heard of them, Bonobos is a deluxe clothing brand designed for all the men seeking perfection(they all do we know that ^*). They focus on delivering great fit, high energy and superb customer experience. Bonobos was named "One of America’s Hottest Brands" by Advertising Age, "Best Men’s Pants" by New York Magazine, one of Inc. Magazine’s "20 Awesome Facebook Pages" and was awarded Crain’s "Best Places to Work in New York City". Pretty great huh?

The request was to style some of their men's suits and pair them with items of my choice. Personally I think that men in suits are truly irresistible and I'm sure you do too after watching the 50 Shades of Grey trailer. I know that suits always make a look very polished and put together. As always, I thought of all the people that actually DON'T need to look like a CEO in their everyday life. So, I created 3 different(but similar in the same time) looks, a preppy, a sporty and a formal one.

The first and the second one are pretty casual and can be worn from day to night. I absolutely love the blue-grey combination and I think it's perfect for fall. I think that the first one is my favorite because you can totally mix and match and also swap the sneakers with some brown oxfords for the ultimate preppy perfection. I chose the sneakers in both looks because I think they make the whole look much easier to wear, especially for a younger guy. 
The third look is the one you'd go for to impress your boss, or wear at a wedding, or if you actually are a CEO xd. It's so simple yet it looks like a million dollars. It makes me think..."Mr Grey will see you now"-sorry I couldn't help it.
So which one of these looks is your favorite? What do you think of the bonobos suits? If you want to learn more about them, just visit their website www.bonobos.com

ADIDAS BY MARY KATRANTZOU

I know it's been a long time, or so it feels like. I know I should post more often like I used to. But my schedule is really overwhelming and I don't have the time to do many of the things I love, including writing on my blog. Because it's not just the time you take to write something. It's also the time you need to find an idea, or read about something, do your research, find or create the material you need... If I had more time in my hands I would totally put much more energy to each post, and I will do this in the future for sure. But, for now, I have to go with it. 
Today, I decided to share with you a very exciting collaboration that was revealed a few days ago-in case you missed it. Yes, I'm talking about the collection that Mary Katrantzou designed for Adidas Originals. For those of you who don't know it, Mary Katrantzou is Greek, so it makes me very proud to see her great success. She's one of the few greek designers that make such a huge impact abroad and sell their products at delux sites like Net-a-Porter. 
This one is really one of the hottest collabs of the season, the one the fashion crowd was impatiently waiting, and it didn't let us down. I love how colorful and fun all the pieces are and I love how they mixed and matched different styles and patterns. 
It goes without saying that I would wear all these-I'm not saying that I would look good in all of them but I would certainly give it a try! My favorite ones are the dress, the top and the skirt at the header and the black-purple jacket. I know, I'm predictable.
Anyways, enjoy ;)

Hello everyone! How are you? I hope that your weekend is going great so far. Today, I wanted to talk to you about a very special brand, Venus Over Water.
It's a fashion brand created by Lucia Eastman. Lucia is a sustainable designer, supporting the women, and fabric manufacturers in Africa, through fair trade. She manages to incorporate her ethnic side and her memories from Ghana to a contemporary 21st century look, all designed for the modern woman. 
It's designed for all of you, real women with a real schedule. If you want to manage everything from your work to your family and friends but still be stylish and experiment with interesting fabrics and colors while keeping it comfy and chic, then this brand is for you. It doesn't mean that because you are having an overloaded program you should let this affect your style. 
All the pieces are designed to keep you comfortable all day long, from early morning meetings to your night-out. Versatile and eye-catching with vintage cuts, these clothes are an all-in-one and completely perfect for all the women who like to experiment.
Personally, I really like these clothes and I would definitely wear them. Some of you might say that they don't fit my style that much, but you couldn't be more wrong. I love to try new things and I already have in mind many different ways to style some of these pieces. It's all about balancing the elements the best way possible.
