Best of MET Gala 2016

When I first heard about this year’s MET exhibition (and therefore, gala) theme, I was genuinely afraid. “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” calls for a lot of misinterpretation or worse, a lot of taking things literally and dressing up like a robot (there are always a few who do this every single year and this year the award went to Zayn Malik, who, with those tin robot arms over his suit seriously looked like the tag-along friend of Gigi Hadid) so my hopes weren’t too high. And actually the first half hour or so was hinting at one of the most disappointing MET Galas ever, then there started to be a glimmer of hope with Alexa Chung, then Kendall Jenner, then Kate Bosworth, Naomi Campbell, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Zendaya, HAIM, Ciara and just when I was already pleasantly fulfilled, entered Beyonce. She was a dream in her floral embellished latex Givenchy gown, straight hair and black eyes, it was the most stylish she ever was on a red carpet and …

Tale of Two Garments

I’ve been into this dress over pants thing for a long time, as long as 25 years to be more accurate, since they let me dress up by myself and I wore my strappy summer dresses over sweaters (another very fashionable twist I added to my toddler style) and pants and refused to take them off. As the years passed that experimental spirit is replaced by desire to add creative layers whilst subtly hiding my thighs and even though being short is a huge obstacle for this style, I still go for it from time to time.

50 Best Wedding Looks From Bridal Spring 2017

I’m going to be assertive about something: this summer, no one has more (really close) friends getting married than I do. I don’t know what the hell happened that made them all decide to tie the knot the exact same year and make me go bankrupt or miss some weddings I absolutely dread missing, but it happened. So now I feel like it’s more than just a blog post when I write about bridal stuff and even though most of them already bought their dresses, they’re still %100 more into anything wedding related. Long story short, here are my favorite 50 dresses from the Bridal Spring 2017 collections, for those who are getting ready for the big day and those who just like to look at pretty white gowns.

The Row Pre-Fall 2016

Only The Row could have made me willingly make a post about a (pre) fall collection with cashmere and fur all over, considering I can’t even look at my sweaters anymore and don’t want to think about anything related to winter till November, but even the beauty of this collection can’t hide the downside of this see now-buy now approach: something feels off, season wise. Had I seen this collection back in January when it was first presented to editors and buyers, I’d be all over it trying to recreate the stylings and going on shopping sprees. Now, it still looks elegant as hell, it just doesn’t make me lust after it. So let’s just put it here and come back to this moment in October.

Les Paniers Dorés

This is the first time in my adulthood that I, myself voluntarily, invested in fine jewellery instead of a pair of designer shoes or bag and more interestingly, it’s an earring which is my least favorite and something I don’t wear at all, so much that my ear holes were about to close up shop for good. But this was also the first time ever I fell this much in love with a piece of wearable art so I guess it was meant to be. Now I try to coordinate my outfits to my Anissa Kermiche earrings – and force my ears to get used to the weight after decades of solitude. . Khaki shirt Zara (similar here & here) .
