Growing up in a Big Fat Greek family I grew up on tales of Greek mythology and fables.
Brunette and olive skinned, I could never relate to Barbie so kick-ass, strong Greek Goddesses were my role models. Always a go-getter and glass half-full kind of gal, I had a natural affinity with Eos, the Goddess of the Dawn who brings the hope of a brand new day.
This admiration for amazing ladies has continued into adulthood and regular readers of my lifestyle blog Honest Mum will know that I’m a champion of talented, fearless women. Although Eos has been pipped to the top spot by Beyoncé to be fair. Who runs the world? Girls!
So I am totally in love with kidswear boutique Melijoe’s latest collection, Rebel Beauties inspired by heroines of other worlds, Star Wars’ Padme Amidala, Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen or Games of Thrones’ Daenerys Targaryen.
Here’s how to get the look…
Padme Amidala, Star Wars

Queen of hearts and peace keeper, Padme Amidala, would adore this ethereal number. Perfect for summer frolics.

Basics are often overlooked but they can make or break an outfit . I love this grey marl vest with super sweet lip emblem on the pocket.

A dress so stunning it’s worthy of at least 3 dragon eggs. Perfect for summer weddings and soirées.
