The Fashion Medley

Is it weird that I like wearing all white in winter instead of summer? I know it doesn’t count as “all” something when the boots and coat is not the same colour but it’s close enough. Plus, I had to create juxtaposition with the thanks to Montreal all white background, I don’t want to be ran over by a snowplow for the sake of fashion. Besides, grey is the most beautiful color in the world and this is my favorite winter coat so I win.

Québécois Holidays

Québécois Holidays

The Fashion MedleyComing close to my first ever Christmas in Canada, I’m more excited than ever. Every year I go back to Turkey for New Year and I’ve always regretted missing the holiday season. Let’s be honest, it’s always better to stay in this magical land of Noël that is Quebec during December and run away as far as possible in January. To top it off, I just found out about Desjardins’ member exclusive retailer discounts which would not only help you get the perfect Christmas gift but would also benefit you all year long. (Hint: %12 off of all online purchases from Maison Birks!)

The Cold Nosed Reindeer

The Fashion Medley

Elif the cold nosed reindeer, had a very frozen nose. And if you ever saw it, you would even say it glows. All of the other Québécois, used to stare and tell her to put more clothes on. They never let poor Elif, look fancy even one afternoon. Then one snowy December day, Montreal came to say: Elif it’s not that cold today, won’t you make a game out of your clothes and play.

Valentino White 42

Normally I’m not a fan of all white, not on one person nor on a lot of people at the same time. Especially the latter; I hate all white weddings, I hate White Sensation kind of events – my limit is the bride + bridesmaids and that’s it. However the latest Valentino “Sala Bianca” couture collection that was presented in New York last week as a celebration of the original Valentino’s early, 60’s-era collections gave a new meaning to white all together. You’d think that one simply can’t come up with 42 coherent white looks all more beautiful and lighter than the other but Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli are no ordinary designers. After this I’d gladly welcome white as the new red for Valentino.

Fade Out

Fade Out

The Fashion Medley

In a miserable attempt to jazz up my regular all black winter look, I threw in my beloved zip booties that I get to wear twice a year. It was a sad lesson I learned that stiletto heels and my life can only intersect around summer time which makes high heeled booties nothing short of useless. I’m not going to lie, I didn’t walk around like that with those shoes, my daily gear is this outfit with a pair of flat combat boots but the blog is my scene and all these fancy shoes are my costumes that I don’t get to wear all the time. It’s like playing dress up with your mom’s clothes.
