Mes Dames S/S13:
It makes me think of how spirng feels would feel in a nothern country, maybe it's because of the grey skies. And maybe because the brand is actually Swedish.

Days in the city:
Helene's new cross stitch is just lovely! And that knitted headband (which you can purchase throught Petit Tricot) - I just love the color!.

Packed Regrets and Stifled Memories:
collection of photographs featuring the suitcases left behind from patients at the Willard Asylum for the Chronic Insane. They belonged to patients from the 1910s to 1960s that passed away at the asylum. (If that intrigues your imagination watch the 2nd season of American Horror Story.)

Alexandra Grecco F/W13:
From the first time I stumbled upon her blog some years ago, and checked her clothes I just loved everything! I'm sure you're all familiar with that dress! I still drool over her past collections!

Dear Creatures Spring 2013:
One of my favourites brands. Check this photoshoot Katie of Skunkboy did for the Emerging Thoughts online shop, wearing Dear Creatures' new lovelies!

He's My Brother, She's My Sister:
I saw this band yesterday through a live streaming of a small festival in Austin, TX and I just loved them! I've been listening to their songs all day, and isn't the tap dancer-drummer with the lovely outfits the cutest?!

Accesorize & Monsoon Spring collection + press event!

14 March 2013

I've already told you how I was invited with other blogger friends, to take a look at the new collection of Accesorize and Monsoon! Joanna and Dimitra, the managers that organised all this were so kind and amazing with us and we had fun taking photos and trying on various accesories!  (Don't you just love this laser cut lace clutch?! I surely did!)

We were given the catalogues for the new collection that contains 5 different styles, Bloom, Debutante, Eden, Geisha and Indigo. It's Monsoon's 40 years anniversary so there are many India isnpired elements in the accesories (Monsoon had it's first collection inspired from India & Bollywood and it was first photoshooted there as well)!

When we were done checking the new collection, we were told to choose our favourite piece and we'd take it as a gift! Despite the huge variety of amazing accesories and shiny bling-blings that I loved, I really wanted a backpack! I had been eyeing the patterned (floral/aztec/stripes) ones since they came out, but in the end, I chose the one in the photo above that fits all seasons and all outfits and is made of such a soft leather-like fabric!
(This is the best I could do in taking some photos with it, the lighting in my room is awful. Really.)

A big thanks to the lovely girls from Accesorize Greece, it was lovely!

Opal Pro is one of my favourite script fonts ever! If I could use it in every project - website or document - I would! It somehow reminds me of old books' fonts..! Unfortunately it's not free. But I don't want to leave you without a free font so here's another one!

Elisabeth Semi Script is a cute mix between handwritten and calligraphy style! I didn't even remembered I had it until I scroll down my fonts to find a new one to share with you..! You can get it for free on any fonts website!
