For the longest, I've been meaning to purchase a new fragrance. I've been using Essence of Fig from Campos D'Ibiza all winter long and during spring. Problem is, although its a fantastic fragrance- really rich, spicy and sexy, its just a bit too heavy for the Spring.
I was perusing the July issue of Lucky Magazine and saw that for part of the luckybreaks, was offering 35% off of Susanne Langs Midnight Orchid. Come on now- with a name like Midnight Orchid, how could you not be enticed to purchase it. So now I'm patiently waiting for it to get here. Will let you know how much I love it or not.

OK I realised it's been a year since I've posted and a lot has happened since then. The economy crashed, we got an awesome president, Michael Jackson died and the list goes on and on.
During that time I realised, jeesh I miss writing on this blog so I'm going to do a "DO OVER". I'm going to start over again! I realise people are still reading my blog from around the world, so I figured why not keep you guys all engaged!

This time around I'm going to include all the things I love, clothing, beauty, design, architecture and any other random musings I can come across.
But for now, I'm really jonsing for some Black Pepper & Rose Thumbprint cookies. Check them out. Plus check out the owner's blog, they're tooo cute

I'm currently looking for cute flats for this summer and Ravinstyle has some great pieces online. Something that will go with everything. I want two pairs, one that is simple and another that has a lot more detailing, but the main rule is that it has to go with everything. I really like these Libertas Dame Sandal. They remind me of a pair of sandals I bought back in Athens years back and that I wore to death.I think I may toss in this adorable Missoni-esque Tolani print scarf and S.Sung Cardigan for safe measures.

Bird is a fantastic shop located in Brooklyn that offers a well edited collection from designers from Rachel Comey to Sunshine and Shadow to Isabel Marant and many many more! I'm lusting over a couple of pieces right now. Spring is around the corner and the weather is really warming up and I'm trying to put together my spring wadrobe. I want pieces that are all easy to wear, that can be mixed and matched and won't look dated.

These dress sort of reminds me of the mullet haircut in terms of the philosphy, the front being business and the back being pleasure. This cute dress from Clu, the top portion is really comfortable cotton tshirt material hence the pleasure part while the bottom is of a woven fabric equating the business part. Don't you just love how things come together.

I was recently playing around on Polyvore, which is a really great site that allows you to create outfits. The set below is what I would call Secretary (think Maggie Gyllenhaal in the movie The Secretary) meets a partly cloudy day. I'm loving the Anna Sui top, and the yellow Phillip Lim skirt really makes the outfit pop. It's always fun to have something that's a bit unexpected.

All items are available at Net-A-Porter with the exception of the bag, which is available at Ralph Lauren.

Thank goodness the weekend is here! Been so busy and swamped at work and trying to catch up to find you all some great goodies to look at. The weather is lovely which is a plus. So happy weekend!


I've had Nina Garcia's The Little Black Book of Style for some time now and I really like going back to it now and again. It is really a helpful book to have around. It's a pretty basic, no nonsense book on style along with beautiful illustrations by Ruben Toledo. Garcia discuseses what every woman should have in her closet, she calls it "the bones". Here they are:

The Little Black Dress

A Classic Mens whire shirt
Cashmere cardigan or turtleneck
A Trench Coat


A man's classic watch

Diamonds (does this need any explanation)

Ballet Flats

A classic high heel pump

A great bag

Do you have all of the above?
