In celebration of Paris Fashion Week, The Outnet is throwing a massive sale on all the best brands presenting their Spring/ Summer 2015 collections these days. Tons of Isabel Marant, Stella McCartney and Valentino parade in front of our screens in up to 65% off, making us drool even more with each hit to the scroll down button. Here are our top picks:

So, are you going to pull the trigger on any of them? We know we would die for one of those masculine Stella pieces!


summer's last one

Trousers, SUGARFREE (check this gorgeous pair of lace ones here) || Top, ZARA || Platforms, ZARA (here) || Bag, CHANEL

Bidding summer farewell in the most perfect pair of trousers - can you imagine these are actually see-through so that they can be worn only at the beach?!

So here I am trying to adjust to this new lifestyle, settle in my new place and make sure that my wardrobe is warm enough to keep me cozy the following months.. And if it's not, then what will stop me from shopping a bit more? Below you can see my top picks from Choies, which all match my eternal love for black and white. Especially the fur that combines both colours; it's the perfect staple piece for winter - I know I am definitely getting it. What about you?

PS: I know it still is super hot in Greece, so there's a new outfit post coming up right after this, which was of course shot back there. I have already transitioned to skinny jeans paired with boots and pullovers here, and I will make sure to keep you posted on all of them!

An ode to the loose tee.

Confession: A great percentage of my t-shirt collection is comprised of men's shirts. And when I say "a great percentage," I mean 95%. Yep, it's one of those things that you simply can't help it shopping from a different section.

I mean, could I have done that? - that being skipping the men's department altogether; avoiding not only tees, but belts, beanies and the good ol' flannel shirt. Yes, absolutely. But why on earth would I buy awkward loose-in-some-places-tight-in-others tops when I can get the perfect Olsen drape just by venturing next door to the guys' shop? Somehow they already have the soft worn-in quality everybody (guy and girl included) loves, and us girls always have to wash multiple times before getting that ourselves.

But the best part about men's tees are that they always look effortless and extremely French when worn. So grab a guy's shirt, throw on a pair of denim cutoffs and some flatforms and call it a day/night!
