Vintage Fashion Icon

A late 1970s photo of aunt Eleni as a student at the terrace of her then Athens apartment framed on the wall of her current bedroom is a testament to her impeccable style: white cotton tee, black gypsy skirt and black ankle-strapped mid-heels paired with a super sexy short haircut and a great tan. Some of my favourite sartorial belongings are inherited from my aunt's precious vintage treasure chest. Dresses by Aslanis, a velvet Sisley blazer, and  her pink engagement cocktail gown adorn my wardrobe and many a time have "saved" me.
