A Millennial 60’s Moment

Never in a million years I would have thought I could wear heeled white leather sock boots and be nonchalant about it but that’s the beauty of fashion, it somehow allows you to pick one item that is the most definitive of its era and adopt it to your minimal, casual – normcore even –  style seamlessly. Now I feel like nothing would go better with this outfit. . Camel wool coat Stylenanda (similar here & here) . Ivory lace up sweater Mango (similar here, here & here) .

Undone

It goes without saying that I have a very different sexiness perception than most people: I prefer a closet full of flat shoes to a pension account, the number of pants I own is almost ten times the number of dresses or skirts and %90 of those pants are tapered and really good at hiding my figure, I wish my boobs were even smaller so I could walk around braless like a little kid and not surprisingly I hate uncomfortable, “sexy” lingerie. My underwear drawer is full of cotton panties, briefs and non-padded bras (and a couple of Bridget Jones worthy grandma pants for skin-tight dresses) all of which I bought out of necessity. It was Undone, a new Toronto based e-shop, that put lingerie under my radar with their simple, high quality basics so much that I even agreed to squeeze myself in them and willingly show the results to you, which basically is like seas parting in my world. I’m petite but definitely not skinny or toned, absolutely not %100 comfortable with my …

Big Shaggy

This shaggy coat is an amazing gift from my mother in law’s lovely cousin, an internationally renowned, award-winning jewelry designer in Turkey who designed my engagement and wedding ring as well (I’m a very, very lucky girl), which came at an amazingly trend-accurate time. To be more specific: I got my hands on it days after I drooled over Marco de Vincenzo’s S/S 2016 statement coat. She bought it in Paris in 1982 and after wearing it with love for years she decided to hand it down to me so it would have another loving home. . Navy shaggy coat Vintage (similar here & here) .

On The Eve of Something

This was my “what I would wear if I were to do something fancy on NYE” look, so it’s absolutely fictional as my actual NYE was an intimate dinner with close friends including me falling asleep on the couch at 2 a.m. while the guests were still present. In all fairness I was jet lagged, which already became a lifestyle for me going so much back and forth between Montreal and Turkey, but this time I was more tired than ever. It’s actually a pretty accurate picture of the year ahead for me; dreaming of wearing pretty stuff but ending up in jeans and t-shirts, eating like cows, having fun with friends and not partying at all. Hold on to your hat 2016, here I come. . Brown mouton fur coat Vintage (similar here & here) . White mini dress Zara (similar here & here) .

Best of 2015

Have you ever had one of those years where it felt like it lasted a lifetime, like almost everything you remember doing happened in just the last 365 days? 2015 has been like that for me in terms of my career, I feel like I started my blog this year and it just evolved and developed even though it’s been 6 years already. This was the year I got featured as the it-girl on Vogue Turkey’s February issue, the year I was one of the instagram users to follow on Cosmopolitan Turkey’s September issue, the year I was on The Main MTL, Flare Mag, multiple posts of NY Mag The Cut, Blue is in Fashion This Year and other websites & blogs, the year I got thousands of repins on Pinterest, the year I raised my Instagram followers from 3k to almost 30k – which was the biggest accomplishment of all on my end. I’m usually a pessimist and I undermine everything I ever do so please bear with  me as I humbly brag for …
