16th of September: Back in Athens for a week! Business and hopefully some pleasure. I am invited to a wedding tonight! Here I am! What I picked up: BCBG gown from the summer collection and shoes from Stuart Weitzman.
After an amazing party next to the seaside, a difficult week full of meetings starts!
20th of September: days pass quickly! Tonight it is Vogue Fashion Night out in Milan – and still summer in Athens, but I do hear the autumn heart beating! Where is it?
The next day while trying to find a free spot in the cafes close to the fashion district of Ermou street, I found the answer! My eyes sparkled to the site of the new amazing ankle boots of Diesel. I put on “My boots are made for walking” and decided to go for shopping.
Here is what I spotted out:
- Boot it Girls! With Steve Madden burgundy ankle boots.
- Bomb(er) it! With the double-face Diesel bomber.
- Stretch it! With Pinko elastic leather-like pants.
- Rock it! With Dsquared jeans.
- Stripe it! With striped sweater from Gigi Hagid collection for Tommy Hilfiger.
- Colour it! With the new red bold iron mascara by Armani.
After 4 hours of serious investigation in the winter collection, a girl needs a frozen greek coffee to recover…Where? At 360’ café-bar-restaurant with the most amazing view in the city: Acropolis, one of the most famous and visited place in the world!
It is already Friday night and I am in the alternative downtown Gazi neighborhood.
It took us half an hour to find a spot and I decided to spoil myself trying the “Peach me up” pirate cocktail from Saint Dominic island. Super tasty and a bit strong! I haven’t been to Saint Dominic yet, let’s put in on the list of places to fly to- pirate boats are cool but my heels do not like them so much.
Full of energy and joy – despite the lack of sleep ;-), it is time to pack my gold bikini – forgotten in Athens after my vacations in Crete- and my new autumn wardrobe (5 kilos of overweight luggage) and go back to Italy. I just rocked it for the time being with my new jeans having a last drink in Sounio – but I cannot wait to wear the rest!
For me Athens is one of the places to be: with amazing weather, culture and style spread everywhere around a capital that never sleeps!
Next stop???hmmm…let’s see.. My moto is “live like a surfer, just follow the waves” (J.Bucay).
