It’s one thing to support the Scottish independence and a totally different one to support this independence through a whole SS15 Collection on London Fashion Week. The one person that we should have expected to see her doing this is Vivienne Westwood, whose collection that has been created with her precious granddaughter’s help was absolutely marvelous. The plaid made her opinion stronger and she made it clear with “YES” pins, that she definitely wants Scotland free. A great way of influence on one of the biggest fashion weeks in the world, from one of the biggest fashion designers of all times.
The punk rock grandma of fashion kept her unique style on her garments and her designs. The loose and light clothes, the bright colours and of course the hair - make up made me think of experience. Years of experience pictured all in one collection.
I think you can imagine the soundtrack of this politically oriented show. Of course it was “God Save The Queen” from Sex Pistols, with a clear message sent to Queen E.
You can see the whole show here:
elisfa. turned 2 today! Maybe you think that the actual site started just 6 months ago, but the truth is that I’ve first created elisfa. 2 years ago today. I am so happy that at our one and a half years made our first more serious steps and I’m even happier that many of you appreciate our baby steps. I created this blog just to share my ideas, inspiration and my whole fashion everyday lifestyle with you. I hope to continue my fashion journey and to have you on my side.
The new ΣΟΜΦ SS 2015 Collection is one of a kind and I mean it. Once again the best styling by Bianca Bogdanou, with those white sneakers giving exactly the sense of the Collection. The photo shoot could easily be one of the greatest Zara lookbook by Mario Testino. The simplicity is everyone when we are photo shooting those clothes. Contemporary, hip-hop style and of course the laser-cut, signature, skirts that make me wanna cry. The best thing is the patterns and their matching, because after this photo shoot I would even consider to wear leggings with crop top if only it was those particular blue ones. Anyway if it’s not for the leggings, it will definitely be for the perfect shorts.

I know every time something so avant garde happens in a fashion show, (allow me to talk about make-up when I am saying avant garde) like in Marc Jacobs’ everyone is in a rush to make conclusions, but this time is not like this I suppose. Make-up is a really wealthy industry, that forced women on buying, for many many years now, even from the Marie Antoinette years women used to use make-up.
But now the time has came! Marc Jacobs and François Nars, made the first step on behalf of every woman and let the models be natural only with moisturizer and without a trace of make-up. Brilliant as this idea is, it makes me wonder, why Marc Jacobs launched his cosmetic collection the past year (I am not sure about the year, but I am sure it hasn’t been many years since)? This last show motivated every single girl to stay natural, on her clothes, on her height ( everyone was wearing flats, in case you didn’t notice), on her residence, even on her make-up. But I’m thinking, that no normal woman (and by normal I mean non model woman) will want to adopt the no-make-up make-up, so, suspicious as I tend to be I also made a thought, that the next cosmetic collection that MJ will launch, is going to be all about nudes. And please make it happen, I don’t like it when I am publicly wrong.
DESTINATION ROOF GARDEN
One of my favorite photo shoots that I came across today and I thought it would be a good idea to share it. Even if it’s an oldie I want to believe is a goodie too. This one is one of my favorite jumpsuits, a type of clothing I love to wear, so comfortable and stylish at the same time. But in a hot day you can’t even think about staying with your clothes on for long, so when the things got hot I just took off my lovely jumpsuit and stayed with my blue swimsuit. I know nothing compares to a cool dip in a swimming pool with a view.

Have you ever dreamt of making your own fragrance. I have and I made one today. OK I didn’t exactly made it, at least I created the Capsule as I wanted too, as I would like to present it in an advertising Campaign. Marc Jacobs makes my dreams come true. I can’t wait to have it in my hands.
THE CAMOUFLAGE EDITORIAL
Harper’s Bazaar created one of my favorite fashion editorials of this month’s issues. A really beautiful camouflage project in collaboration with Victoria & Albert Museum. The New York Botanical Garden was the greatest background that blended with the wonderful floral garments.

My daily beauty habits are really precise and careful and after many years of research for the best products I ended up on those beautiful things. I always had a love for Chanel Cosmetics and especially on Chanel’s Poudres, so when I found this great Clinique anti-blemish make up I decided to use it under the Chanel top coat. Also recently found treasure is this beautiful Korres Blush, which I found by accident on a drug store on my neighborhood. My Chanel concealer and Poudre Universelle Compacte is for an easy morning solution, you know those days you don’t want to make up, but you are to insecure to go out with nothing at all. And finally my nude, Estee Lauder, limited edition, lipstick is something that I can’t miss on my daily beauty habits. What’s your daily habit?
To all of you Tumblr Girls out there have a good night sleep dreaming catwalks and fashion weeks.
Toi&Moi Photoshoot by G.Stravolemos
I felt nostalgic today and when I fell on these great photos by G.Stravolemos I felt the urge to share it with you. I hope you like the B&W effect, because I love it.

THE GOLDEN SANDAL ISSUE
Since I’ve bought this golden strappy sandals I couldn’t hold myself from sharing my excitement with you. I’ve already had a pair of black, strappy sandals, but one pair of them is never enough. You only stop when you have them in a full color palette, at least I will only stop when I will accomplish that.
They’re brand new and that’s why I didn’t manage to wear them yet, and that’s why you haven’t seen them in a complete outfit yet, but you will see them very soon, since my sister’s wedding is coming in less than a week. But as I told you before I wanted to share my excitement with you, so I represent you my golden, strappy, Kurt Geiger sandals. I think I’m in love… What do you think?
SEPTEMBER IN PICTURES
If you have ever worked in a magazine, you would know from experience that the September issue is the most important and the most tricky. It’s the first after Summer and the first of a whole new season and also the first of a new fashion wave that comes with the new season. So if you have ever wondered why the fuzz with the September cover girls that’s the answer “IT’S AN IMPORTANT ISSUE”.
So for this September we saw more than interesting covers on fashion magazines all over the world. Harper’s even played the Audrey Hepburn card with making her grand daughter cover of the September issue. But still I prefer the new model era by Mario Testino.
