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 …

Fanny Packs are Back!

Fanny Pack Dorks

Don’t get a wrong idea because of the title, it’s just a How I Met Your Mother reference, I in fact do not think fanny pack wearers are dorks. I think they’re practical, brilliant people. I for one never let them go, they were always my music festival bag (once you get the hands-free, shoulder-free experience there’s no turning back). I don’t know when and why exactly they fell out of style but I know for sure they are back now with a bang. And while Gucci’s GG Marmont Matelassé is the official king of the year, any fanny pack would do the job. In fact, if you ask me, the more 90’s looking the better. No matter what you call it: bumbag, belt bag, waist bag (that’s how it’s called in Turkish); do yourself a favor and get one of these before it’s too late.

I See You 90’s

90’s have always been my favorite era (and when I say 90’s I’m also thinking about early 00’s), not just because I lived my childhood in it but also because it’s the time that I resonate with everything the most. The music (open one of my playlists and you’ll see where I got stuck), the minimalism, technology we grew up with… Everything I remember from 90’s and can’t remember but find out now is fascinating to me, everything but the sunglasses and the eyebrows. I know you weren’t expecting me to bash 90’s sunglasses in the first paragraph of a post about 90’s sunglasses, but it’s true (I’ll get into the eyebrow point in a separate post, when thin line eyebrows become a thing again in a couple of years). I’m usually uncomfortable with any super trendy sunglasses trend, huge or small, and prefer wearing classic models year after year. That’s why it really irritated me at first when I started seeing super thin rectangles all over Instagram, to the point I felt worried for …
