Googled your way here?

As every other self-respecting blogger, I too have a visitor counter installed in my blog. Mine is provided by the kind people at Statcounter.com and I have to give them credit, as it is free, very easy to use and totally discreet because they don't run any ads on your blog. The reason I felt compelled to write all that boring intro is that my counter doesn't just count. It also gives me other usefull information about my visitors, like which country they are from or if they have visited me before, but the most interesting feature is the "google search". Yes people, I can see weather you googled your way here and most importantly, what you googled to accomplish that. Mostly, it's keywords like "lopi blog" or "athens fashion week". I've also googled "greek fashion blogger" myself and my blog came up first! Yeah, I'm that self-obsessed. I also see some reoccurring queries, which I would like to answer here for my dear visitors:
  • Zara store in Volos - Doesn't exist yet, but have faith and patience, they're actually building one as I'm writing these words.
  • Chie Mihara Greece - If you live in Volos, you can find them in Galleria di Scarpe in Ag. Nikolaos. In Athens I've heard about a store in Glyfada that carries them and in Thessaloniki I saw some Chies on a window display in Tsimiski street. Bear in mind though that the importer brings just a few models each season, so the internet is actually your best option. If you were looking for Chies within my blog see this, this, this and this.
  • Badila clothes - They now stock them in Volos, in a store in 28 Octovriou street. In Samos, visit my friend Eva who runs Falzo boutique, she will be absolutely frank about what suits you and what doesn't. In Athens there is the Badila store in Maroussi, but I had some really bad experience in that store and I don't recommend it.
  • Vintage shopping in Greece - Read this and good luck.
I hope I answered some of your questions. But there are always some that I'm not sure I can address properly. They make me think about things that have never occured to me before, they make me laugh, the make me stare blankly on the screen, and yet, they landed people on this blog. Daddy Likey even has a feature on those kind of queries. Judge for yourself as I try to answer them:
  • Other name of clothes - A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.
  • What do architects wear? - See below.
  • Why do architects wear black? - Beats me. Interesting question though, I think I will try to answer it in a future post, along with the query above.
  • Where can I find a good job in fashion? - Not Runway magazine, I guess. Devil wears Prada jokes aside, it depends on your definition of a good job. If you are looking for a reasonable schedule, a decent pay and a friendly working environment, then maybe you should seriously rethink your plans.
  • Fashion inspired by food - What a ridiculous idea. Oh, wait...
  • Wearing clothes with the price tag still attached - And I'm the one who will advice you on how to do it properly?
  • What is Heidi Montag's job? - Can't help you here. It's one of the ever unsolved mysteries of the universe.
  • How much does Keira eat? - That's an easy one: little.

Αυτό που με έκανε να γελάσω περισσότερο:"What is Heidi Montag's job? - Can't help you here. It's one of the ever unsolved mysteries of the universe"

How much does Kiera eat? For reals? Have you even TALKED about her?

Funny to ask Sal, I have actually written about her here fashionarchitect.blogspot.com/2008/09/victoria-cuts-it-and-keira-doesnt-eat.html
wondering if her body looks healthy thin or not, and you had actually commented on it too!
