Can't wait for Christmas!

 Here I'm again! How are you?

 We count 10 days till Christmas, so I've decided to write about an appropriate theme: ornament and gift ideas for last minute shopping inspired from Christmas style decor and food.

 What I love the most about Christmas is the warm and sparkly atmosphere my home gets from the Christmas tree, the ornament, the candles and the...traditional desserts. So, I've picked some products from my favorite Etsy shops and here they are! Enjoy! :)))

 Ornament: handmade ornament made with various materials like fabric, felt, metal, clay and glass instead of plastic are always unique and also art objects that you may keep for many many years. My mother lived in Chech Republic many years ago. When she moved out and came back to Greece, she brought with her a Christmas ornament collection, which, even nowdays, I admire hanged from the fir tree when I visit my parents. Glass drop shaped, handpainted, wooden,ect....I would need several posts only to describe them!

 Gift ideas: jewelry and housewares inspired from Christmas are a nice idea; seasonaly, but on the other hand  very special. I have some pieces like these in my jewelry collection.

FASHION: Bohemian style!

 Hello, I'm Triada! I have just started this blog and this is my first post! The theme was idea of a good friend and great artist, Katerina (DevineDecadance).

Boho Chic is a hot fashion theme for spring 2013!...but, what actually is boho? 


It’s easy to recognize when you see it, but complicated and difficult  to get dressed like this…successfully. The truth is that's a very mixture style, which combines a lot of styles itself.  Casual and modern chic goes along with folk, ethnic and vintage wear. Moreover, it’s absolutely stylish and adorable but doesn’t fit to everyone’s personality.

Boho is represented by a variety of colors. Natural and earthy tones are best. There is a bit of bright colors, but also this year creamy, pastel and white are on top; many fashion designers like Salvatore Fearragamo (above) and Rae Francis (below) use them as basic to create their collections.

Natural materials, like cotton fabrics and leather; beads, crochet, feathers, metallic details make the boho dream real.


Bohemian style is characterized as unique and artistic. It’s all about looking natural but very feminine too. Furthermore, bohemian dressed people have their own powerful style, they are close to nature and also supporters of handmade, because they pick extraordinary clothes and unique accessories instead of the mass produced fashion. 
I picked some of my favorite boho style items on Etsy and here they are!


Clothes: short leather jackets, big coats, casual jeans, patchwork skirts, oversized blouses, long gypsy style skirts, very short and long dresses, floral printed outfits.

Accessories:  belts, hats, silk scarfs, cotton handbags and shoulder bags.

Jewelry: plenty of bracelets, ankle bracelets, mix-and-match and long necklaces, and dangling earrings. Metal, crochet, fabrics, leather, wood and beads are some of the key elements of this jewelry.

Hair accessories: There's headbands, clips and barrettes for your hair.

Shoes: Comfortable style shoes like flats, sandals, leather cowboy style boots, boots with fringes and platform shoes.


TIP: Clothing and accessories are equally important for a bohemian look. If the clothes are the canvas, the accessories are the colors to paint the boho picture!

Thank you!
