keep the change

With a price tag of 2.990 euros ($4.790) i don't think someone would mind the 10 euros bill.

Oh no!
My size is sold out  (or every size is sold out).
But no worries.
I will buy a car instead.

something black

(to suit my feelings)

I know that this is trying suppose to be a fashion blog,
but after what happened  in Syntagma Square today *
if i was supposed to upload a picture that reflects the way i feel ...

everything BLACK could do the trick.

                                                                                    * these pictures def worth a look

This is why i am so into fashion.
It is more than a pair of shoes, a pencil skirt, or a fancy little black dress.
It is something you can dream about.
And hell yeah, i dream myself wearing this McQueen piece of art, several days nights now!
(of course i dream about the shoes too)

Shoe Horror

I would better walk down the Elm Street in an ordinary pair of shoes
(even my grandma's -she is a very stylish person you know) instead of walking anywhere in THESE shoes!

How the hell this happened?

Only one person would approve without seconds thoughts :

and only if she was about to star in one of his movies.

my (new) candy

First pair of booties ever!
(Timberland boots wore by me and everyone in my class in late 90's does not count)
I know my mom does not approve (yet another pair of shoes)- but still- i had to have them!
Now, i only have to wear them!

Allegra Chelsea Plattform Boots

at least he would approve! right?


Unconventional Beauty

A couple of months ago, i got as a present this different version of one of my favorite fairy tales.

Everyone (i hope) is familiar with the be loved 1959 animated film produced by Walt Disney and based on the story of Charles Perrault, where princess Aurora falls in deep sleep after wicked witch Maleficent curses her;
she could only be awaken by true love's kiss.


Writer Camila Morton invites Christian Lacroix to join her and together they reinvent the favorite ''once upon a time'' story. 
Morton  wrote the book where Mr. Lacroix  did the amazing illustrations.
If nothing else, this book is worthwhile for the illustrations alone.
The French designer is the Prince who is not in need of a kiss, but of a fashion makeover.

In 2009 Christian Lacroix became a victim of the global financial crisis as the U.S.-owned fashion house bearing his name filed for court protection from creditors.
In July of the same year the couturier showed what may have been his last high-fashion collection.

In September 2010 Cate Blanchett wore an exquisite vintage Christian Lacroix Haute Couture gown.She looked divine.
The time i saw the pictures my jaws dropped.
Maybe one of the most beautiful gown i have ever seen if not the most beautiful.

And since this post was initially about a fairy tale- a little more of magic follows

In the end no one can tell if the fairy tale gone (completely) bad, since Mr.Lacroix has already found other ways to express his infinite talent.
