Today I want to share my Greek blogger friend, Dionysia! As you can see from the photos, she spent her holiday in Greece with sun! If you are reading this blog from north part of the world, sun does not mean anything to us :( But it does shine in other parts of the world.
I really appreciate her dedication to her blog and express her fashion style. If you wonder about her clothes or shoes or anything else, just click the post links or ask her on Twitter!

Victoria Beckham’s limited edition Range Rover Evoque is finally revealed! As I mentioned yesterday, I was expecting to see something a bit catastrophic and hopefully I was wrong. Beckham’s edition looks really nice and there is no design bit that ruins the harmony. On the contrary, Beckham edition looks a bit muscular than feminine. Exterior matte finish black with black forged 20-inch wheels turns this limited edition into a really muscular car. I was expecting to see some flashy colours of this fashion season but Beckham did not wish to spoil the Evoque with contemporary fashion.
Interior looks way much better! The hand stitched vintage inspired leather seats are completed with rose gold-plated accents. And here we can see that, Victoria Beckham places her signature! There is one thing I never liked in a car, gold. Unfortunately, this very valuable material may not improve the harmony of a luxury vehicle, instead it sometimes ruin the harmony. However, Evoque Beckham is not covered with gold inside, and I did not see it with my own eyes. So, I don’t want to be so brutal while criticising but, I still consider it as a minus for this vehicle.
It did not finish yet, when you buy this limited to 200 Evoque, you will have also get a four pieces of Victoria Beckham leather luggage and a hand-sewn leather wallet for owner’s manual with her signature (I hope she signed them by herself, not a printed signature). When you consider the price Victoria Beckham’s fashion line, these four pieces of leather luggage is a bargain. If you would like to buy them from Net-A-Porter, you would definitely pay more money than an Evoque.
Unfortunately, Beckham’s limited edition is only available with coupe version. And that’s a pain when you wish to get onto rear seat. Because, it is impossible especially if someone is as tall as Victoria Beckham with skyscraper heels tries to get onto back seats, the result will be a fail!
In general, this car is way much better than I expected from Victoria Beckham. Unfortunately, they did not stop inspiring the Evoque from the fashion and they priced as £79,995 not £80,000. Sorry but it is very very expensive. You can buy a proper Range Rover or a Porsche 911 or Mercedes SL for this price. I know this is a limited edition and it has to be priced like this but this is too expensive, I am sorry!

Today I want to share the Louis Vuitton’s Fall Autumn 2012 Fashion Show with lots of steam smoke! This year LV decided on a fashion show concept based on steam-powered train to create a retro feeling. Unfortunately, smoke was fake, it doesn’t have that real black coal burned ashes spraying all around! Honestly, it would be really funny to see that smoke was real and ashes were sprayed all over the place :)
My suggestion to LV, next time use a space shuttle. As the space shuttle are retired now, you can buy one for good price!
Thanks @alisveriscini for the support :)

On Saturday, I have attended the Harvey Nichols Birmingham Fashion Show 2012. Like previous years, it was amazing, from the organisation of the event to show sequences. Hopefully this year, I know how to take photos in a fashion show and which settings would be the best. However, I still need to learn more!
If you are looking for some style tips, photo gallery would definitely help you to have some inspiration for different combinations. There are some of the best bits from the show, and the rest is on Facebook Page!
I have habits from taking cars pictures but they are not ideal for taking pictures of models :)
And this year, the event was sponsored by Infiniti, and there was FX35! I hope to see more car brands involved with fashion event. Please, next time let us know before the event ;)
The brands took place during the show are;
No Tomorrow | Diesel | Jimmy Choo | RayBan | Death by Zero | PRPS | Paul Smith | D&G | PRPS | Alexander McQueen | Prada | Dsquared | Ralph Lauren | Moncler | Carrera | Wild Fox | Rag and Bone | Mulberry | Alice and Olivia | Sam Edelman | Just Cavalli | Markus Lupfer | J-Brand | UGG | Christian Louboutin | 7 for All Mankind | Cambridge Satchel | Rag and Bone | Zoe Karssen | Jeffrey Campbell | Vivenne Westwood | True Religion | Dolce & Gabanna | Burberry | Belstaff | Tom Ford | Michael Kors | Jimmy Choo | Paige | Pinko | T by Alexander Wang | Gucci | Diesel | Nudie | Horiyoshi | Sam Edelman | Emporio Armani | YSL | By Malene Birger | Second Day | Helen Kiminski | McQ | Soludos | Missoni | Finders Keeprs | Hugo Boss | Sass and Bide | Deepa Gurnacani | Philip Armstrong

I am sure you all heard of green vehicles. Hybrids, electric and hydrogen powered ones. I am not going to argue, which of them is more cleaner or are they really environmental. But I will argue on something else! The colour. All these environmental cars are considered as green! Because, green is associated with the grass, tree, leafs and plants.
However, it is quite hard to spot a green car with green paint on! Have you ever think why manufacturers never offer green colour option for the green cars? Because, green colour looks terrible on a car! In my whole life, I have never seen a green painted car. It looks so catastrophic even the most desperate car manufacturer offered the green!
By the way, don’t confuse the green with British Racing Green. It is a totally different green, what I am trying to emphasise the green that is annoying and turns anything into ugly.
Hopefully, I found a solution for green car dilemma. Thanks to GQ UK magazine, there are two options to reflect your greenness. There is one option for men and one for women. If you are men and driving something green and willing to reflect your greenness, here is the opportunity by Cambridge Satchels. British bag manufacturer offers wide range of colours for different bag and they have the exact green for a green car. For women, Sonia By Sonia Rykiel saves you and offer a purse with a wonderful green colour.
From now on, you don’t need to worry on how to reflect your greenness ; you have the opportunity :)
