25 Nov

It was raining cats and dogs.  It was raining like a cow pissing on a flat rock.  It was raining chairs.  (note: UK, US, GR in order of appearance).

Still, so many of you made it and we are thankful (influenced by Thanksgiving).  Pictures of the event’s cast..

Tattoo-ology

18 Nov

Once the mark of the outcast, the rocker and the rebel, now the it-accessory from lawyers to athletes, women -mostly women- to politicians, students to nuns (I guess..).  One fine day back in August heavily pregnant miss Dora Bora and yours faithfully set out on a research for the best tattoo place in Athens.  Dora focused on hygiene, I focused on the artists.  Here’s what we found out for first-timers (if there still are any):

-Research what you want.  It must age well with you and be timeless, at least in your mind.
-Research your studio. Hygiene comes first.
-Research your artist.
You need to get along.
-Do it.
-Look after it. Sun protect it.

Daddy aint that cool with you having a tattoo?  UV tattoo is one cheeky way to do it, as long as you can stay away from discos and psychedelic parties.  Although, I wouldn’t recommend that, as it is still not clear whether UV ink could be carcinogenic. And I wouldn’t recommend the white ink tattoos either as most of the time they look more like a scar than ink art.

And now for your inspiration, all the way from the archives of tattoologist

 

And if you’re still not intrigued, here’s me playing my last card..

 

Actually my last card is this: There’s more where this came from! Boom!

Who let the Books out?

15 Nov

by Dimitria Ioannidou//

Imagine something like a car, with 26 windows and 1500 books.  Imagine a big white van with adjustable levels for the convenience of its guests. Imagine a non profit initiative materialized aesthetically in the highest standards.  Now stop imagining.  It’s a mobile library in the streets of Mexico and I wish I could be there as we speak to see it in person.

Some pictures are now in order.

Pre-Christmas 1Day Fashion Indulgence made in Greece

14 Nov

Don’t even think  it’s too early for Christmas.  The longer it lasts the better.  It’s 40 days till Christmas (countdown clock here), lets start mumbling carol-y songs and preparing gift lists.  Plus, hard times call for proactive thinking. So plan ahead and join us for tea, sweets and Christmas shopping.  There will be jewls and bling and treats for kids, there will be dresses and frocks you’ll love, there will be one of a kind design items for your most special ones.  There won’t be any of the parking fuss and there won’t be any of the worries for the juniors, cause there’s a playground involved as well.  So there you go. All is sorted, Boom.  See you!

Music I like..watching. This week.

It’s true what you’ve heard.  We’re back. Frock n’ Roll is now well and trully open and we are celebrating.  Why don’t you help us celebrate for as long as possible by spreading the word about FROCKNROLL.COM. To get you in the “preaching” mood we are having a competition for the chance to win a €300 Gift Voucher on our online shop.  All you have to do is post a “fashion detail” photo to your Instagram feed and hashtag #frocknrollcomeback.  It doesn’t have to be an outfit or accessory purchased at Frock n’ Roll, however you’ll be judged for originality and popularity.  And since we post worldwide, the winner can be from any country!  So style it up, strike a pose, shoot it, hashtag it and cross those heavily jeweled fingers till December the 1st.

Contest Closed: Congratulations @thegeorgep
