It’s hard to pinpoint the exact moment when everyone on Instagram began flocking to Mykonos, a tiny island off the coast of Greece known for its photogenic coastlines and wild beach clubs. But when a viral video of Lindsey Lohan dancing birthed the catchphrase, “This is how you throw a party in Mykonos, bitch”, its status as Europe’s preeminent party destination was solidified (sorry, Ibiza). Despite the dance clubs and drinking culture, Mykonos is a perennially laid-back haven with a distinctive aesthetic that has inspired trends in food, fashion and architecture. So even if you don’t have the money (or the stamina) to embark upon a 20-hour flight halfway across the globe, you can achieve the same look with a little bit of strategic online shopping. We won’t judge.

6 Uncommon Goods Evil Eye Serving Platter According to my very thorough Internet research, the evil eye is a curse that is given from one person to another by way of a spiteful or bitter look. The only way to thwart said curse is to surround yourself with eye motifs, which are said to repel the evil spirits. In other words, this hand-painted serving platter really does it all.
