fancy wish list

Posted on December 17, 2012

I was recently asked by missbloom.gr, among other girls, to present my Christmas essentials. Since my wardrobe palette is rather boring with lots of blacks and blues, I usually add some color with my accessories, mainly shoes and jewelry. Pointy shoes, crystals and some luxury goodies like my Serge Lutens perfume or a good facial day creme is what got on my list.
I now take it a step further and make a xmas wish list.

This Stella McCartney light blue shirt dress is on top of my wish list, together with a pair of Jil Sander color-block sling backs, that I instantly fell in love with when we first met in March at Raf Simon’s very last fashion show for the house.


I love luxury paper. I keep collecting personal stationary since the age of 6. I also love birds. Can I ask Santa for this Bird Box by Bernard Maisner

It includes post cards and statement cards with hand painted exotic birds *sigh* by Mr. Maisner himself.

Shourouk crystal necklace.

The finest make up of them all, Giorgio Armani’s Maestro miracle.

And a man pouch -I often prefer men’s clothes and accessories- from Lanvin.

And maybe for the new year I’ll try something new: Not Another Bill promises a gift every month in my mailbox!

i’m very strict and particular when it comes to perfumes, use the same one for years and haven’t been very willing to change it. ‘Epic’ and ‘Lyric’ are Amouage latest fragrances and i declare enamorada with the first one- but with the woody oriental version for men (well, i’m very keen on unisex parfumerie) . you cannot say it’s an easy perfume and that’s probably why it penetrates my head.. Behind every Amouage creation there’s a mystical story, beautifully narrated in videos: Epic and Lyric

better late than never

A very late christmas present arrived last week, together with an amazing card full of wishes, from Chanel press office in Paris. Though I’m not a  Chanel perfumerie fan,  this 200ml bottle of Beige put a wide smile on my face. It smells so fresh so clean and it looks great in my bedroom. Would it be a blasphemy if i sprayed it on my sheets every night before i sleep?? readmylips
