A Conscious Search

It’s been a long while since the last time I went crazy over a piece of clothing I couldn’t initially find and if I remember correctly, that last time I promised myself never to do it again yet here I am, wearing the H&M Conscious mules for which I searched the whole world frantically for two whole months. I checked stores here, then in NY, Paris, Istanbul, Ankara; I asked my hubby to check them in Berlin, Oslo – they were completely sold out everywhere, which is a hint that you should give up on them at that point, but I refused to get that message from the universe. And much like every other dream, this one too came true through eBay and here they are: my slightly overpaid for, fancy mules. The search is over. finally. Thankfully. .

The New White Suit

Never in a million years I would have dreamt of wearing a white suit and be actually happy about it but that’s what fashion does, I guess. Even though this is clearly not a traditional white suit situation, I felt like a wedding singer/Italian mafia in 20’s NY when I put the outfit on. And that weird feeling made me love it even more; I’m very loyal to my comfort zone but I know I’m on the right track when the look is a bit bizarre for me. .

Chanel Giveaway

Much like diamonds, skinny jeans or a pair of pumps; a Chanel bag is something that should be in every girl’s wardrobe because no matter how boyish, urban or eclectic you are, there’s a Chanel bag somewhere that would elevate your look when the right moment comes.

Tale of Two Garments

I’ve been into this dress over pants thing for a long time, as long as 25 years to be more accurate, since they let me dress up by myself and I wore my strappy summer dresses over sweaters (another very fashionable twist I added to my toddler style) and pants and refused to take them off. As the years passed that experimental spirit is replaced by desire to add creative layers whilst subtly hiding my thighs and even though being short is a huge obstacle for this style, I still go for it from time to time.

Les Paniers Dorés

This is the first time in my adulthood that I, myself voluntarily, invested in fine jewellery instead of a pair of designer shoes or bag and more interestingly, it’s an earring which is my least favorite and something I don’t wear at all, so much that my ear holes were about to close up shop for good. But this was also the first time ever I fell this much in love with a piece of wearable art so I guess it was meant to be. Now I try to coordinate my outfits to my Anissa Kermiche earrings – and force my ears to get used to the weight after decades of solitude. . Khaki shirt Zara (similar here & here) .
