Guest Post: Alena and her Grecian Goddess Look.

Today's Guest Post comes by a Beautiful Mother and Grandmother (her baby boy grandson is adorable) Alena. I couldn't define Alena's Style in a few words because she does rocker-chic, she does  bohemian, she does Greek goddess, she does elegant office amd everything in between. She always looks on trend and very put-together though and her long legs look even longer when she is in a skirt or a dress. I will let her continue, now. 


Purely by accident, I found this draped dress and I'm pretty sure that the design was inspired by chiton clothing - the oldest Greek garments that have survived for centuries. Greek clothing was very simple yet elegant, and always displayed a spectacular look - with elaborate drapes and pleats at the waistline and below the neckline. Such drapes add a soft touch to the outfit and give a more feminine appearance.

When I tried on this Greek-style dress my first thought was to make a total Greek goddess look. So another ancient Greek element, airy and comfortable gladiator sandals, came in handy. For the complete ancient Greece look I rolled my hair into my headband.
