H&M A/W 2014-2015 collection

If you missed the Paris show, the let me do a small recap. H&M is playing with luscious fabrics, sparkly details,c-throughs  and cozy sweaters, combining them in a daily chic, office or night-out mix! I had the pleasure to see the best pieces of the new collection and to feel the fabrics and imagine the possibilities, here in Athens. As you'd expect of me, I was just drawn to the sweaters! It's so fluffy I'm gonna diieeee (if you don't know where this is from, google it, now). We were served delicious cocktails, listened to music and chatted about the new collection with bloggers and journalists.

The collection this time is focused on the woman that is always ready for a night out. Androgynous pieces that tame the party dress underneath, elegance and some boheme spirit . The must for this season is the slip dress! Layered or not, it's the thing you can surely invest in this coming season. The hint of lace and the way the silk (or chiffon)  moves with the body will make sure you are the center of attention. For those of you who are not big on attention, you can use the androgynous pieces (like the all times favourite biker jacket) to make your daily style pop! Or the draped top and pants, which is the new costume style for this year.
Take a look at the pieces I liked best and tell me what you think! Would you dare a slip-dress outfit or do you prefer the rock pieces? Or both, because why not?

And enjoyed this view! You can see Acropolis in the back!

All in all a great event. I really like the new collection and I can't wait to get my hands on the clothes I saw. So many possibilities, so many styles, it made me want to try new things! Even thought I was skeptical for some of the pieces, when I saw them combined, they worked perfectly! Thank you H&M for the invitation!

Summer Party/H&M Haul

What better way to prepare for the impending summer than with an H&M party?! Because let me tell you music, drinks, make up and discounts are probably the best combination for shopping, and possibly the best thing for a lousy day. I can't believe I almost didn't go because everything was going wrong that day (on top of everything I burned the dress I wanted to wear :'(  ). But I got over it, put on a smile and a skirt and went shopping. After entering H&M I realised why they call it shopping therapy. The variety of clothes, swimsuits and underwear had my mind off the problems in seconds! My love has always been the H&M lingerie, so naturally, half the items I bought were lingerie (but I obviously can't show you what I bought). But they are so sweet and flirty! Ok ok back to the things I can show you!
 Like I said, music drinks, crowd and discounts in a perfect environment where just what I needed. The place had an awesome summer decoration showcasing pieces from the current collection and in combination with the music just made me want to buy everything and go on vacations! As always H&M organised an amazing event.

My little shopping spree, apart from the lingerie that I just adore and will show off under sheer tops, included an awesome swimming suit. I already wore it at the beach and let me tell you, I LOVE IT! I actually want to do a photoshoot with it! And this alone should tell you how much I like it, cause let's face it, I'm not one too comfortable with wearing a swimsuit, let alone being photographed for the world to see. But not just yet.
Shop the top here

Shop the bottom here

You can find it in blue, white and apricot and I like this bottom better that the one with thin sides, because it suits my body better. Now this time my shopping spree was focused on tops.

Silicone Rose

What you don't know about me (yet) is that, before I got into fashion, I was obsessed with nail art. I would change my nails every 2-3 days (still do) and I would always have designs or glitter etc. So I thought I'd share some of my worthy finds with you, and maybe inspire you to do your own nail art, easy, quick but still stunning.
First, I want to apologize to BornPretty because it took me this long to make this post due to personal issues and to you, for being absent.

Anyway. Today's time saver is Silicone printing templates. I suppose you are familiar with the struggles of metal stamping templates. I, for once, can't find special nail polish. Silicone templates solved that and a lot more problems I had. You can use them with your regular nail polish and you don't need any more accessories for it.

Remember, you can use my discount code if you want to order AKX31 for 10%, although their prices are already really good! 

It took me something less than 30' but only because I was stopping for the photos. Normally it takes me 10' max after my base nail polish has dried.

So, how to get this (or a variation)? Notice how the design is a bit different from one hand to the other. It was intentionally to show you a different way.

Rings by Styleb4Fashion

Step 1. Just apply your desired nail colour on the desired shape. You can put more than one and make it multicoloured! Since this is my second time trying it, I thought to go with the safe single colour.

Step 2. Clear the excess nail polish by stamping the paper. Doesn't need pressure just repeat enough times until it is clean.

 Anna ,Keni,redhead, spotlights on the redhead,fashion,model,blogger, beauty, nail art, stamping, Silicone printing templates, bornpretty store, review, discount, code, instructions, how to,
Easy right?
Step 3. Align with your nail and press gently. Really this is the hard part for me, I can't put the design in the middle of my nail :p . You don't need to use the whole design, for example I used half of it to create a thinner line and only one of the roses. Ok this was kind of a dumb advice .
 Anna ,Keni,redhead, spotlights on the redhead,fashion,model,blogger, beauty, nail art, stamping, Silicone printing templates, bornpretty store, review, discount, code, instructions, how to,

Tadaaaa!! You are ready! You can put clear top coat to secure the designs but that's it. It's really fast and easy.

see the difference? If you don't want to go for "french" style tips you can always use it sideways!
All in all I find this product really good and I totally recommend it. I did receive the printing templates as a gift but honestly, I will purchase more because I really like them. This is my own unbiased opinion, you should know by now I don't mind saying if I don't like something. Thought I should clarify this.

Always use top coat!

I never had a jacket for spring. If it was hot I'd wear my winter jackets with something light underneath and if it was cold I'd just wear warm clothes! Until I decided to actually get a coat. Actually, until I laid eyes on this beauty from OASAP. I never take it out anymore, the details are amazing and the lace at the end makes it stand out. I got a lot of compliments on it, even on fashion week people complimented me on it! I absolutely love it, only problem, while it is the large size, I need to re-adjust the buttons because it doesn't fit me very well at the chest. I guess I needed the bigger size. BTW the coat is sold out for now, but they will restock it soon. It is perfect for this season and it fits my body type so well, makes me look thinner like they tell me.

Also, the jewelry! I have a very creative friend who makes all kinds of jewelry! Her page is GL Handmade Creations and I will show you more from her soon. Everything that I am wearing is hers, she was also the one taking the photos! Talk about multi talented girl, she gave me awesome instructions!

15th Athens Xclusive Designers Week: Day 1

I finally found the time to edit all the photos! AXDW was as awesome as always but the lighting still caused trouble for all the photographers. I got the chance to meet part of the Migato team, lovely ladies full of ideas for the future! They were one of the sponsors for the fashion week! Basically, I saw my shoes on the runway!

Yes, I am wearing my Migato shoes :p


The curtains opened with the ever lovely Loukia, which I missed due to my tardiness, but saw photos and she was had a lovely collection! Her "Dark side of lovely" was surprising to me. I am not uploading photos since I didn't take any but you can find her work here. Next up was Patricia Adam, now that I did get to see. Here you can take an idea about her collection. The rest on my facebook page as always!

After that we had the pleasure to enjoy Athina Korda.As you can see it was full of leather details and asymmetric cuts, fur and tight lines.
