Outfit of the day

Here's an outfit I put together yesterday:
I think the vest I got in February fits in perfectly with this year's fall fashion trend. I am sorry ahead of time that my backdrop isn't as nice as when I took the wedding pictures. 
The lighting is everything and in my apartment it doesn't take good shots. The pictures in front of that white curtain was taken at my boyfriend's house. 

Anyway, for some reason I think the pictures I took in my apartment look....weird, I don't know. 
Check em' out for yourselves!

        A Closer Look:

1. Vest - Blanco clothing
2. Floral Shirt - Kirra @pacsun 
3. Gold Necklace - Alloy.com
4. Fringe bag - H&M

5. Shorts - American Eagle outfitters 
6. Wood and Leather strap shoes - BERSHKA 

I had a lot of fun with this post, definitely stay tuned for more of these to come! YAY
Until next time,

Simple in Champagne.

Last night I attended a friend's wedding. And, as promised I have uploaded what I wore last night for this special occasion.

I titled this post, 'Simple in Champagne' because I didn't want to over-do it. I just wanted a simple, sophisticated look. Sometimes, the simpler the outfit, the classier. And that is exactly what I did to achieve this look.

Close-up of embellished shoulder

As you can see the dress has a lovely champagne/beige color and the embellishments are in black and silver. To dress this look up a little more I wore my black strappy platforms, one black ring with faux diamonds, and a silver ankle bracelet. 

I didn't feel that any necklace or long earrings were necessary because the embellished shoulder is an accessory in itself. Too much sparkle around the face would look too gaudy. 

1. Dress - Forever 21 
2. Shoes - Jessica Simpson collection 

A shopping trip is in order very soon! I need to start uploading some looks, I'm quite bored with my posts lately. I'm going to try to spice it up a little people!

I'm blog-happy today, updating twice in row.....
Already thinking about doing a third that just came to my mind.

I haven't posted any f.usic updates since May, so today I'd like to showcase these three songs that have been blasting up my headphones like crazy lately!

I may be a dork - but Selena Gomez is ADORABLE!

Feel free to love these songs too! :-D

Now get your bad-self dressed and ready to go,

cause it's FRIDAY NIGHT!!!

Fashion's Night Out - Athens review.

Not taken by me. 

As some of you fashion followers may know, VOGUE hosts this 'Fashion's Night Out" event to globally celebrate in all the major cities. On September 8th, it was hosted in NYC, LA, and Miami! Luckily for me Athens was also having this VOGUE event September 15th....In other words, yesterday. 

After seeing all the pictures from other cities, I thought this was going to be one of the coolest night's in Athens. To make a long story short, I was TOTALLY WRONG
1ST: Why would they call the event "Fashion's Night Out," when it ended at 9 at night? 
2ND: There wasn't even any signs around promoting the event, as it was going on.
3RD: The center of Athens was cleaned and cleared of people even before 9, like nothing had even happened there. Like a ghost town??? Weird. 

So, basically I went just to get a T-Shirt, which I didn't even find. And I don't even have pictures, because it really was an embarrassment to VOGUE, Greece. Next year they need better special event planners, and better promotion. This was really upsetting to me. 

But then again, it won't really matter what they do next year...because i'll be back home in lovely New York, and I would much rather attend FNO in NY then in Athens. Anything compared to NY events is kind of considered a joke. 

I wish I had something more exciting to tell you all
I was sooo looking foward to uploading everything about this cool
fashion event, but it was all-around so disappointing...

This weekend I'll be attending a wedding so I have a great excuse to dress up and take pictures! Hopefully I'll be uploading those very soon! And I plan on taking a little fall shopping trip over the weekend, so I will have some fun posts coming up! 

Until Next Time, ~HAPPY SHOPPING~

Fall Fashion Trend Report

Good evening fashion addicts
I guess you can say fall fashion is in full swing because trend reports having been coming out like crazy. And that means... summer is officially over! WAH :-( 
I had a couple of summer outfit pictures I was planning on posting, but I've been procrastinating. Now I think it is too late and rather pointless. I feel it would ruin the flow of my fashion reporting. Even if the outfits were extremely cute, it would look bad on my timing skills. 

So let's jump right into the new material, shall we? 

Fashion magazines everywhere are putting out their take on this fall's fashion trends. There are so many great looks I have come across that I want to post - but I have been known to be quite a ranter, so i'm trying to keep my blog as simple and clear-cut as possible and not rear too far from the topic. (i.e as I am already kind of doing here...)
I think these are the MOST IMPORTANT PIECES  that people should be shopping for this fall!!!

There are soOoOo many different trends this fall that I was going to makes collages on each specific trend (like I already did for the 'sequin' picture) but, all the trends were used with each other that I thought an overall picture using all the trends at once gives a better idea! 

I am REALLY excited about these 'new' but 'old' styles! I can't wait to start putting outfits together! Hopefully sooner than later - I will be getting pictures up of how I worked with these trends in my everyday life! 

Until next time, HAPPY SHOPPING!

Today I started my classes for the fall semester. One day closer to graduating in June 2012! YAY
Although I wasn't as excited for school to start as I usually am, I still tried to find a cute outfit to put together. I know that as the year drags on.....so will my style. And the colder it gets the more and more it will be unlikely of me to dress nice for school. At least we have the first day of school. A day of new beginnings, new experiences, and especially new first impressions.

That is why I decided to take some pics of what I wore today! Also, it is because I had a request from one of my blog followers to do so! ;-P So this one is for you!

As a heads up, I don't have a tripod for my camera in order to take far-away, sideways shots....so we have to compromise for now with the weird choppy angels I took the pictures from.

Why this look?
*You can never go wrong with a pair of jean shorts to start off the look

*The red orange shirt with the gold accented shoulders are a really summery color combination

*From there the gold and brown shoes come into play

*Accessories are -the brown belt, to match the little brown in the sandals. 
 -The gold/turquoise necklace. The red-orange shirt is a bright color as it is, so you can use turquoise accessories to make a noticeable contrast, and the two colors look great next to each other.  

I guess that about wraps it up. I better get my beauty rest - 8 AM comes mighty early, it's already 2! Goodnight :-D
Until next time, ~HAPPY SHOPPING~
