Favorite Etsy Vintage Shops

I don’t remember the first time I discovered Etsy or the first time I started wearing vintage, but I’m guessing I’ve been a fan since my early university days. I was living in Turkey and it was hard to get everything shipped there but I still couldn’t stop myself from spending hours and hours on Etsy just looking for new shops and unique pieces. It was a whole new world to me and still to this day, the beauty of vintage never ceases to amaze me. To know that you are not harming the environment while shopping, on top of the feeling of owning a one of a kind item is unparalleled. Anyone can spend tons of money and go to a store to buy season’s hit pieces but only people with a true eye for style can know how to pick quality vintage pieces. Though with the expanding universe that is the internet, it’s getting harder and harder to narrow down the best stores and spend the time to pick the worthy pieces. I …

Shopbop October Picks

As you know by now, Shopbop is not only a long-time partner of The Fashion Medley but it’s also my favorite online retailer thanks to their wide product & price range and the crazy easiness to shop from Canada (prepaid custom taxes, free shipping & returns). That’s why I visit shopbop.com everyday (yes, everyday) and save all my favorites for future reference which makes it really convenient at the time of a sale or when the time comes to make shopping lists for the blog. Since a lot of people liked my last post about the Shopbop sale, I decided to make another compilation of all my October favorites. Shop away (but not too much, leave some of them in size small for me)! Save Save

Dads Know Best

You remember all those times your dad made a joke about how stylish and awesome he is and you just sat there feeling (openly) embarrassed about his super high waisted jeans and ugly, chunky but supposedly comfortable sneakers? Well folks, once again it’s established that fathers know what’s best because those ugly, chunky sneakers are the absolute shoe hits of the season. And while it took me some time to absorb and hop on board, I’m behind any trend that will allow me to wear sneakers and still be deemed fashionable (last year, during a dark period where sneakers are announced as “out” indefinitely, I almost had a heart attack). Besides, these breed of trainers are perfect to tone down feminine looks such as long frilly dresses or mini skirts – which helps me tremendously on a daily basis. My personal favorite is the ACNE Studios Manhattan (if you are willing to splurge), but Nike Air Max 95 or New Balance 624 would do just fine. Thank you dads for never giving up on your …
