The Fashion Medley

If wearing anything other than a camisole and shorts is torture for you during summer, you may think dusters and long shirts are a waste of money. That’s where I was, until I had an epiphany and realized they are perfect for layering and as a secret agenda, hiding my ass whenever needed. It may be too much for some people, but a sleeveless duster was what I needed when I wore this outfit to make it more “mine”.

Pre-Fall Coating

Pre-Fall Coating

Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2015There are many difficult situations in this world that you have to face at some point and if being indecisive is one of your distinctive qualities, the question “which piece of clothing is your absolute favorite” can be the hardest challenge ever. But it’s not. Even though I wear sweaters like a second skin, wear NOTHING but pants and own I’ve lost count so long ago pair of shoes; they still can’t come close to my obsession with coats. Because even with shoes there’s a point where I say “I have something similar, I don’t need this one” (happens rarely, but happens). Never with coats. Even if I had owned every single parka, wool maxi, fur, shearling, leather, denim, peacoat, cape, trench etc on the face of the earth, I’m pretty sure I still would have wanted to get my hands on these 35 perfect coats from Pre-Fall 2015 collections.

Girl Crush: Kamilya Kuspan

Girl Crush: Kamilya Kuspan

Kamilya Kuspan 15

With her trademark dreamy hair, always make up free exotic face and effortless style that boosts elegance and still manages to surprise every time with little remarkable details; this modern day Yoko Ono has been my muse for a very long time. Kamilya Kuspan was born in Kazakhstan but she’s now living in Paris working as a stylist, which makes me so happy because I get to see her street style shots every now and then. Besides her natural beauty, another thing you realize in her looks is how she repeats the same accessories (like the brown croco bag and the grey suede pumps) and tells a different style story each time. She makes you reconsider all your shopping habits and trend chasing tendencies. She’s perfection.

Wedge of Winter

Wedge of Winter

The Fashion Medley

Not just my boots, I myself am also at the (w)edge of a depression about winter. I’m already sick of it and it hasn’t even started yet, for me anyway. We left Montreal days before the ice storm hit the town and we were lucky enough to miss the cold warning days. It’s not a summer paradise in Turkey either but I’ll sure as hell miss the mild climate when I feel the perishing cold in my bones next week. I’m not ready lord, have some  mercy on me!

Winter Sun

Winter Sun

celine spring 2015 sunglasses aIf you live in a country where in a diagram, all the arrows eventually point to the answer “winter is coming”, this next thing I’ll say is going to make so much sense to you: sunglasses are actually a winter accessory. When endless snow meets the frostbite herald sunlight, you either put on sunglasses or go blind. My husband found it a little hard to accept this fact but eventually he gave in. But how could you not, especially when there’s so many beautiful eyewear to shop for in the middle of the season?

The two must have designs? This Céline pair with the metal bridge (or get it for a fraction of a price *wink wink* here) or the RayBan rounds.

Brown is The Warmest Color

Brown is The Warmest Color

The Fashion Medley

Especially when it comes in soft soft fur. As the weather constantly hits minus 15 and you have zero tolerance for cold, fur, hand in hand with down coats which appear so freakin ugly after two days, is all you have. The hard thing is the moral dilemma of real fur as faux fur is nowhere near keeping you warm; enter Mouton.
