Trees in powder pink

Added Mar 30, 2016

Athens, Greece






I love this dress very much. On Monday I had my Master Thesis presentation. I had sewn something specially for that day but the last minute I decided to wear this dress although it was not the business look I was planning for the occasion. It just made me feel good…

      Ευχαριστώ πολύ….Να μου φτουρίσει δεν το πολυπιστεύω, τουλάχιστον όμως έφυγε από πάνω μου…Και το Σάββατο κάναμε μια καλή έφοδο στα υφασματάδικα με τα κορίτσια…

    Very charming and elegant dress, Elpida. You look very beautiful, colors are great mixed, photos are amazing. I guess that thesis presentation was successful and hope your mother in law is already ok!

      Thank you! Do try it! It’s very easy, I completed it in two days during the breaks of my Msc preparation. The fit was excellent, I only had to give 4cm extra length to the upper part, as the waistline was too high…

    This is beautiful Elpida. Love the pink and black together and the lovely photos, especially the one with the pink panel behind you. There are no colourful buildings where I live.

      Thanks Sue! There are several pastel colored buildings in the old district of Athens, but all modern buildings are dull and colorless…
