Designer of the week: Susan Alexandra

Super talented NYC based Susan Alexandra makes every item you order by hand, the time you order it. Jewelry, bags and purses as if they're coming from your colorful childhood (or just craving to have a bite of them) yet so creative and stylish,  everyone wishes they have one piece in their collection:). Love 'em all!

Here is a glimpse of what Susan is making, you can go shop here


Current mood with an airy boho feel

in collaboration with tosave.com

When I was asked from tosave.com team to choose some items from their online shop, there was a bit of a struggle cause the options were endless. The moment though my eyes stumbled upon this floral maxi dress I knew I've found the dress that would play a huge role during summer days. This dress has two things I love about: vintage boho feel and asymmetrical & airy style, both of which are great for hot, summer days.

Here, I decided to style it a bit whimsically with a pair of high-waisted, one of my favorite vintage shawls and these beach slippers, soon to become my everyday-to-go item:)


Take me there

This time it's the Greek landscape of Kythira, the new gastronomic destination in Chora, BON BON Fait Maison, for a taste of their pancakes and ice cream with a fresh take:). What a combo!


New favorite phone case

in collaboration with tosave.com

So I've been searching for a case for my iphone and nothing seemed to match. It would either be too expensive or too much of a design going on for my tastes. Till the team behind tosave.com was kind enough to let me choose and try out one of their phone case styles! Fun!

This iphone plating soft case I ultimately chose has it all: clear color so that the actual phone is visible (hello!) and matching color with the phone's shade:). What else do you need? Oh yeah: a great price. That is one more of the perks of this case:).


JW Anderson for Uniqlo

Another great collaboration for Uniqlo is out! This time it is from one of my favorite designers, JW Anderson who's inspired by the British heritage garments giving them a whole new update on this Spring/Summer collection. Items have just released online and in stores:)

Music of the day

Objects of desire

This time it's all about chairs and spring designs..

Got the last CB2 (huge fan) catalogue on my hands and I couldn't but share with you my three toping the list. These are too nicely designed not to do that and while browsing the catalogue were the ones that stood out instantly so I couldn't keep it to myself - their details are phenomenal and they WILL become an addiction.

From top to bottom: Noelie rattan lounge chair with cushion- Criss cross cafe chair- Expat ii white leather safari chair

Which one is your favorite?


COS S/S 2018

..did it again.

This is part of their brilliant Women & Men Spring/Summer 2018 collection with folds, drapes, volume and natural materials being the protagonists------can't wait for it to reach the stores!


Take me there

One of my great loves, greek food, and greek cuisine's deliciously uncomplicated and simple, yet tastiest flavors, are hard to find outside the country's own borders. This place has been created by a Greek/Turkish couple and their love for what all the Aegean "Tavernas" and all the gatherings with great company alongside glorious food is all about.

Couldn't go last time I was in Miami but I am not missing this spot when I'm back in town..

Current mood

Lately it's all about these beautiful bright red tones, and the combo of a total red look with the right pairings is a top style for me. Here are some of my favorite pieces currently:
