The New White Suit

Never in a million years I would have dreamt of wearing a white suit and be actually happy about it but that’s what fashion does, I guess. Even though this is clearly not a traditional white suit situation, I felt like a wedding singer/Italian mafia in 20’s NY when I put the outfit on. And that weird feeling made me love it even more; I’m very loyal to my comfort zone but I know I’m on the right track when the look is a bit bizarre for me. .

Best of Sydney Fashion Week Street Style

Best of Sydney Fashion Week Street Style

I can count on Sydney for many things; a beautiful sunset photo from the Bondi Beach that will cheer me up no matter what, lots of beautiful people living there (like my friend Ilkin, seen above glowing in white), a sense of belonging even though I’ve never been to Australia once and of course, a fool-proof street style scene during fashion weeks. This was the first time there was a fashion week for Resort collections anywhere in the world and even though I’m not %100 sure about this, I’m thinking it’s because of the season clash between continents. Whatevs, mates from Sydney don’t care about seasons or weather, they provide year round inspiration and here are my favorites.

Byond Fashion

One of the absolute best things about being a fashion blogger (besides having an excellent excuse to buy that 78th pair of sneakers or that same pant with a slightly different pleat) is being able to wear the designs of brands you’ve long been lusting after but can’t find everywhere because they are emerging or exclusive brands. Thanks to BYOND, an online luxury fashion store based in London offering a range of upper emerging designer brands, I could walk, run, swivel, twirl and do all those fashion shooting clichés in my favorite Altewai Saome jumpsuit from S/S 2016 collection with such joie de vivre because just look at how beautiful it is. Even a boy like me can’t resist its charm. BYOND is an online platform dedicated to connecting talented designers with smart fashion lovers who are eager to find unique sophisticated clothing in line with their modern lifestyle so it’s no surprise we found and ran towards each other with arms wide open. Besides Altewai Saome, their designer selection includes brands like Bedouin, Cristina …

Chanel Giveaway

Much like diamonds, skinny jeans or a pair of pumps; a Chanel bag is something that should be in every girl’s wardrobe because no matter how boyish, urban or eclectic you are, there’s a Chanel bag somewhere that would elevate your look when the right moment comes. Unlike skinny jeans or pumps though, it’s hard to get your hands on a Chanel bag so I’m about to offer you a once in a lifetime chance to win your own Chanel. I’ve teamed up with Poshbag Boutique, Canada’s largest online retailer of authentic pre-owned designer handbags, to win a Chanel bag valued at $2000 and all you have to do is follow @poshbagboutique on Instagram, mention a friend in the comments under the giveaway photo and then regram that photo on your own account and tag @poshbagboutique in the photo so they can track it. Contest closes June 30th at midnight EST and winner will be notified on their Instagram. In case Chanel is not your bag (pun intended) or you don’t win the giveaway, you …

Best of Cannes Red Carpet Part I

To be perfectly honest I don’t know much about the art of film so I wouldn’t be looking forward to Cannes every year this much if it wasn’t for the red carpet. But it’s so good, possibly the best in the world, that it would make even a chick flick superhero sequel fan (at least I’m not one) become obsessed with indie cinema. Since there are so many days and many beautiful looks, I divided it into half and here are all the best dressed of the first 5 days of Cannes Film Festival.
