Unexpected Acquisition

♪ & Britney Spears - Scream&Shout ♪

When you're in your teenage years, you have to shop carefully for a while, because you don't know what the final shape of your body will be, nor your shoe size. Two years ago, I felt blessed to notice the latter remained constant so I thought :"What the hell? Let's buy dozens of colorful flats and different party heels, I can wear them FOREVER! ". Wrong Mary, you were so wrong...I noticed I was between sizes when it finally got warm and and I was excited to go back to my beloved 7 pairs of Zara flats. Surprise!! I was in excruciating pain as I was trying each and every one of them. 

Okay, maybe I can squeeze my toes when I have a party to attend and heels are required ( Cinderella's stepsisters style! ). But on a daily basis? No way. So, I hardly brought myself to spend my spring shopping budget (which took so long to acquire) on two leather pairs of flats, which should be enough for now. You must be thinking I couldn't buy anything 'trendy' as a result but I had the fortune to find one of the pairs in an emerald shade. Color of the year declared by Pantone, I love it so much and I can't wait to show them in a future post!

Until then, here is the other pair from Bata, I went for cafe au lait shade because I'm obsessed with this color palette and it's classy and versatile. I found this coat at the New Look sales, I love the feminine design and how it emphasizes my waist. 

What about you, my dear reader, any successful spring shopping yet?

Mini Guide: Wedding Attire

Wedding Attire

Okay, I have to admit, this thing with posting mini guides for different occasions has really gotten me. I'm not sure whether I should make it a permanent column on the blog, but it definitely challenges my creativity! I was talking to a friend the other day about how the wedding season is so close and I don't really have any idea what I would wear to such an event. Then I realized it depends on the theme of the wedding, which makes it perfect for a mini guide!

Still, there are some essentials you need to have in your clutch in all the cases: compact mirrors are great for touch up and they somehow strike me as a type of jewellery. My favourite one was brought by my aunt from Turkey and whenever I have it with me, people admire it. It's so cool to own such an useful and cute accessory. For this collage I chose one from American Bridal, I just love its shape!
Beauty products : Don't bring all of your makeup, just make sure you look amazing the entire night! For the looks I went for Topshop products because they have such a pretty packaging and  I liked the visual impact, can you share your thoughts on their quality?
Also, for me perfume is another important thing. No, I don't bring my whole bottle, I just have tiny versions of various fragrances. You may notice the Miss Dior Cherie in all the sets, that's because it's my favourite and yet I can't afford to buy the big bottle.

And now, let's talk about different settings and what to wear when you attend a wedding:

Come on baby, let's ride!


“She wasn't doing a thing that I could see, except standing there, leaning on the balcony railing, holding the universe together.” -J.D. Salinger

Well, you know you care abot your readers when you reaveal how you look after 2 hours of sleep! I took these pictures on my trip, because I was absolutely overhelmed by the beauty of the landscape. The balcony & my face? Not so fabulous and still, I felt like I had to share one of the marvellous places my country has. There are so many of them actually, it's incredible how we sometimes tend to forget how lucky we are! I love travelling and, although I won't get to visit my dream destinations this year, I decided to stay positive and enjoy the things I encounter.

And since we're talking about amazing things- how cute is my new Chicnova necklace? This is the shade that I call honeysuckle. I have been collecting statement necklaces lately, they just change the whole ensemble.

My advice for you , my dear reader: Travel more and don't only choose exotic destinations, there are always many local attractions we tend to disregard. Manage your time well while you're on the road and don't forget to take your friends with you!

And since we're talking about Chicnova, it's time for me to announce the lucky winner of the giveaway:

Dream trip & tips

Fashion for Vegas

Hitting the road has become pretty common for me lately. I'm spending some quality time with my family in a quite place at the moment after I just got from a 4-day trip/camp with my classmates. It was dreamy, we had so many adventures and parties (in the collage you can see a mirror photo taken before one-so unusual of me , but mom wanted to see the outfit), I slept 11 hours all together and I don't regret it! On the last night, we talked about some of our favourite places to visit and that was the first time I actually felt like I want to visit USA one day badly. Not just the iconic New York and Los Angeles, but also the glamorous and eccentric Las Vegas.

As I am dreamer and I have noticed that you guys respond well to my mini guides when it comes to outfits to wear on certain occasions/ trends I figured I might as well envision the perfect trip to Las Vegas and the outfits appropriate for all the events! The first picture shows an elegant look for a visit to the casino because we all think casinos when we say 'Las Vegas'. What else is there to see? I started searching online and I found so many other things to do in Vegas that I concluded it is a trip worth taking once in a lifetime. Here's how I would dress for my favourite activities there:
