Youth

by mariaflora in Uncategorized

There’s no greater bond, than the friendship between 19 year old girls, that have know each other forever.
My little cousin and her mates always remind me of my first ever best friend, Oriana and that day i met her at volleyball practice. After that, it was us against the cruel world of teenage dramas and i became the woman i am today, half way through cutting class and sneaking out of her house, to explore the Athenian nights of the 90s.
Wherever you are in the world Oriana,this post is for you.
Love always,
MF

Anthi and Demetra are wearing SOMF and those are my new Saint Laurent skate sneakers, and no, i dont skate, or think it would be wise, to skate in a pair of leather studded slip ons but i waited for these babies patiently until the sales began, and i did do a little rain dance when i received them, so go figure.

this faded silver nail polish is by OPI. It reminds me of my great auntie Flora, who sported a pearly white nail up to her last day. I always admired her dedication.

a weekend away

by mariaflora in Uncategorized

Bianca invited us to her cycladic-themed summer house for two days of non stop eating and sofa surfing and boy oh boy, it was exactly what i needed.
I love an empty summer house in the winter.. pine leaves in the pool and discarded single flip flops, melancholia and doom, almost like the last days of summer before a new school year, or the last party scene on Coppola’s The Virgin Suicides.

the ΣΟΜΦ SS15 show

by mariaflora in Uncategorized

Hey guys im back!

Sorry for the lack of posts, but i was crazy busy with PFW sales of my SS15 collection, followed by the AXDW show in Athens on the 25th of October 2014, that blogging was like that old relative that you wanna call and think of ALL THE TIME, but for reasons unnamed (they are boring and stink slightly, procrastination, letssss-squeeze-spots day, cat needs petting, so many more jobs to finish before now, showering etc etc) you never do it.

The collection and show inspiration was my summer in Athens really and it was styled by my gal Bianca Bogdanou and sponsored by the wonderful people at Vichy and their Aqualia Thermal, which means that i get to have a good amount of kick-ass hydrating serum to last me through this coming Winter (insert GOT joke) and that a few of you lucky ladies, will get to have your own allowance of Vichy AND a limited edition SOMF X Vichy tee for free.
