Next time you go shopping for a hand bag make sure you know: vegan or real leather?

image
Only few days ago I read about Jane Birkin’s demand to Hermes to remove her name from the iconic bag due to the cruel tactics used to slaughter crocodiles for the making of their bags. In the article there was also a reference to vegan leather goods and it got me thinking: what exactly is vegan leather? I mean,I understand that somehow it’s better than regular leather,but in what sense? So I’ve decided to look it up a bit!

Kendal and Kylie for Topshop

I know what you think: why would I buy an overpriced celebrity clothe line instead of any other brand? And that’s exactly what I was thinking before checking Kendal and Kylie’s line for Topshop.
You know I love keeping it casual and not spending a fortune over outfits. But I have to say I found their line sooo good that I’m actually looking forward on trying some of these clothes. The whole collection is full with these amazing California vibes!relaxed and beachy! Shorts,overalls,tees in reasonable prices and great color patterns! I’m actually ordering the floral jumpsuit cause I simply can’t resist!!
I wasn’t that surprised with the Kardashians fashion line but with the Jenners’ .. Well,I have to say they get what’s trending and elevating it a notch!

5 vacation essentials for a stylish trip

Oh it’s finally June everybody! May wasn’t my month (like,at all!) so I’m trying to work with whatever life brings me along the way..
Anyway, I have two more weeks of work and after that I’m planning on taking few days of and finally enjoy life! I absolutely love summer,mainly because the weather puts me in a more fashionable mood!

Dresses is my No1 choice (by faaaaarrrr!!) so this is the first thing I buy for summer and the first thing I grab from my closet!
I m totally in love with these two Zara dresses I bought last week and I feel they are the best for a morning look or a relaxed evening.
I do wear shorter dresses too if it’s very hot,but generally I prefer them for a more sexy and Vgirly evening look.

The obvious must have is the bikini! (Dah)
This season I’m all about color! Although usually much more conservative in going for bright colors this time as It would look insanely gorgeous when I’m tanned!

Now when you’re on vacation you spend a lot of time at the beach or by the pool. So your bag needs to fit all your stuff and some more! But you don’t want to bring 10 different bags for your trip, right? So one stylish big bag could do the trick: have it with you by the beach and still make it wearable for a nice summery relaxed evening look.

Ralph Lauren treats (or how to wear a polo shirt) 


Every girl has a thing for brands. But we can’t all afford a luxurious couture wardrobe so IT girls gotta find another way to do so. For me it’s the outlet stores. I know I’ve mentioned this more than once but it’s a real treasure for me! The closet one is McArthurGlen in Athens so I’m a frequent there! My first stop is always the Ralph Lauren store.
For me it’s a small piece of heaven hidden just few minutes away from home! I absolutely adore their collection and although it’s an outlet I always find A-class quality items in reasonable prices.

Why a Zara wardrobe ain’t a bad idea 

It just ain’t! Period! My mum always complains about my shopping addiction with Zara, but I Just can’t help it! You know the thing is,when you find a brand that fits all your needs and standards you can’t just ignore it!
I have experimented a lot with commercial brands over the years and every now and then I find clothes that fit well and I can enjoy. But when it comes to shopping that depicts my style then Zara is always my first stop. 
95% of my jeans and trousers come from Zara. I have a pear figure so their jeans fit perfectly even in size 34,which is a great boost for my confidence!
When it comes to professional looks this is also my choice,as I can afford quite a few blouses -especially on sales- and their jackets are amazing.My only complain is their bags’ quality,as in most cases it’s not comparable to the quality the rest of their products has. But I can live with that!

I will be posting by the end of this month my new work outfits but for now I will share my no1 key piece for an autumn look: the cardigan.
