Plex me up


These bags are the hottest thing I've seen lately! It's going to be the talk of the town and I'm sure of it. Urania Gazelli is a greek designer who decided to bring together the family business with fashion. And she 's doing great!
   Her plexiglass clutch bags blew our minds at Paris Premiere Classe one month ago with their originality  and elegance. I had never thought before that a material as cold as this could be transformed into such a fresh fashion item. The bags are totally handcrafted with Plexiglass being the basic material and are signed with the brand's signature gold sign on the inside.
   Sadly, they are not on the market yet but they are going going to be available on her website soon, for online purchases. As for the prices, there's going to be a range between 400-700 euros, which I find very logical if you consider how expensive the material is and that each one of them demands two full days of work until ready to be carried.

Let me know how you find them, cause I dream of the day I'll carry one of them...

Tights, tights, tights...

    I know it's a bit late for tights now, as the weather is getting warmer day by day, but I couldn't help not sharing this collaboration with you. You probably are already aware of it and I would be as well if I was visiting asos more often, but I have to admit that I prefer Topshop as it concerns online shopping (my eyes can't stand the image overload over there and after a few pages I'm knocked out).
    So, back to the tights now. It's the collaboration of House of Holland with Pretty Polly that fascinated me and it's no wonder why. The colour variety is not wide, as they only come in two or three colours with black dominating the collection. The prints though are great and even the animal-printed version could become a part of my wardrobe (which would be so not me, as I I'm not very fond of animal prints, however this is a really good one). Thus I think you already got it: even though summer is approaching I'm going to buy a pair of them for sure... and I'm not sure if I'm going to wait until fall to wear them. Don't forget that there are also three pairs you can find exclusively to asos. Visiting this page can get you directly to the whole collection...
Have a nice shopping time!

   All this luxury! Can't wait to get dressed like a silent movie star, since the hottest news of this season is undoubtedly the 1920s come back and I love it. Dropped waists and straight-line chemises, feathered head bands, pleats, opera gloves and cloche hats. However, for the Spring/Summer 2012 season the 1920s style was only adopted by the evening wear. Still, we have a lot daywear of this decade (including cloche hats, which is not exactly my cup of tea) to see in the Fall/Winter season. Or, if you can't wait until next season, I have found plenty of these at etsy and ebay and I'm sure I'm going to find a lot more after a small search... Till then, feel free to share with us your 1920s findings.
