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. . Black faux fur coat Front Row Shop (similar here & here) . Black leather pants ASOS (similar here & here) .

This is the first month of Canadian style destination Smart Set’s 1 piece 10 styles project and I’m a happy ambassador of the brand! The concept is basically 10 different bloggers creating a whole and unique Smart Set look all including the item of the month; in this case this versatile long cardigan that can be worn as a kimono, a jacket or even a sweater, letting you layer up and down. .

I always stand true to what I believe in. If I made a post promoting track soled creeper loafers and oxfords, I’m going to embrace it even though it means telling my husband for the hundreth time that I’ve spent our money on a pair of shoe that he’ll, yet again, very much hate. That’s the spirit you’d want in a shopaholic. . Grid print pants H&M (similar here & here) . Black wool biker jacket H&M (similar here & here) .

Gimmick no 1: clear sunglasses. No 2: a colorful anklet which is a souvenir of the lovely summer I had, along with the tan (which is probably to last around 2 weeks, no more). You can say I’m closing the summer scene while mourning humorously, whatever that is. .

In fact it arrived to Canada mid-August but I’m talking about a real humane climate – if it’s fall in Turkey, it’s fall everywhere. Though I very much enjoyed wearing my beloved new huge wool sweater even after the sun came out which is ridiculous since I’m gonna have to wear it for the next 12 months of Montreal winter. .
