Celebrating the New Year in Istanbul

2010 has been an interesting year for me. I created my own business on tourism, kept my job on foreign trade and created this new blog. So, business wise, it was an exhausting year for me. However, as usual, I have traveled quite a lot this year and had so much fun.(even walked on the red carpet at Venice Film Festival)  I also had bad times during the year as everyone, but tried to manage by reminding myself that this is life and it is full of small games :)
This New Year's Eve, I am in Istanbul and will welcome the new year with friends. That's why, I'd like to show you some pictures from Istanbul; ready to welcome 2011. I wish you all a great New Year!

2010 benim icin cok ilginc bir yil oldu. Yeni bir is kurmak, varolan isime devam etmek ve yeni bir blog acmak gibi gelismeler guzel olmakla birlikte, oldukca yorucuydu. Ote yandan, bol seyahat ve guzel anilar, ise dair yorgunluklarima ilac oldu. Herkese oldugu gibi, benim de basima kotu olaylar geldi sene boyunca, ama "hayat" deyip katlandim, dogan gunes ile ben de yenilendim.
Bu sene yeni yila Istanbul'da girecegim ve o sebeple sizlere yeni yili bekleyen Istanbul'dan birkac fotograf gostermek istedim. Hepinize mutlu, saglikli ve bol kazancli bir 2011 dilerim.

Cape

This season, almost all designers used Cape in their collections. I also got one and have been wearing it quite often. It is great for not so cold winter days.
I also have been hearing that sometimes, women have difficulties matching cape with their outfits so I decided to share a few looks of me; wearing cape with different styles. You will also see my friend Ester's different style with her hooded cape.

Matching cape with a skinny jean is a good choice.
I wouldn't go with a different style of pants under cape e.g. flare cut jeans
And of course it is better to add some color like in the picture below.


I love wearing my cape with mini shorts or skirts

Ester's hooded cape

Sezonun gozde urunlerinden pelerin, sert gecmeyen kis gunlerinde cok kullanisli bir alternatif. Eger pelerin seviyor ancak nasil kombinleyeceginizi bilemiyorsaniz, yayinladigim fotograflarin size ilham verecegini umuyorum :)

Paris favorite pictures & window displays

As I promised before, I am sharing a few more window displays and some of my favorite Paris pictures that I took during my Paris visits.



This is my favorite picture amongst all I have taken in Paris.
It was a peaceful winter evening last year, I was walking to St.Germain through the garden of Louvre by myself and could not resist this view. It was so magical that I wanted to take a picture and keep this memory with me for life.

Bu resim benim Paris fotograflarim arasindaki favorilerimden.
Gecen sene bir kis aksaminda, Louvre'un bahcesinden St.Germain'e dogru yururken bir an duraklayip etrafima bakma geregi hissettim. Malum, kosturma icindeyken insan etrafindaki guzelliklerden mahrum kaliyor. O gece bu buyulu manzara ile karsi karsiya kaldigimi fark edince, bu ani her zaman hatirlayabilmek icin birkac fotograf cektim. Iste onlardan biri bu.




Soz verdigim gibi Paris noel & yilbasi vitrinlerinden birkac fotografi daha sizlerle paylasmak istedim. Bunun yani sira, daha evvelki Paris seyahatlerimde cektigim favori bir iki resmi de gorebilirsiniz :)

Prada new store opening

Last week, Prada opened a new store in Istanbul and organized a party to celebrate it. The place was packed but can't complain since most guests were stylish and it was a fun event with nice drinks and good music.

Earth Colors

I am actually a black-grey fan when it comes to fashion in winter, however playing with earth colors is much more fun since there are more colors on the palette and great results come out with a little effort.

Max Mara dress
Derishow coat
Dior handbag
Burberry pumps


Sandro jacket
Hudson Jeans
Colisée de Sacha boots
Chloe handbag

  























Kis mevsiminde siyah ve gri tonlarini daha cok kullanmama ragmen daha genis renk araliginda cesitli kombinler yapmaya musait olan toprak renklerini kullanmanin zevki bir ayri :)

Nisantasi streets

Nisantasi (read Nishantashi) is "the" neighbourhood of Istanbul for high fashion. Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Hermes, Chanel, Prada and many others have their stores in Nisantasi, that's why I call it Avenue Montaigne of Istanbul :)
Every New Year's Eve, a street party is being organized there and they decorate the streets very nicely. This year, they even covered the main street with red carpet. It is very enjoyable to see the colorful streets and window displays during December. I was there yesterday to meet some friends and here are some pictures to give you an idea about Nisantasi in December.






Her sene oldugu gibi bu sene de Nisantasi sokaklari yeni yili karsilamaya hazir. Yollara kirmizi hali bile serilmis durumda.

Personal care products

If I am lucky enough to spend a day at home during the weekend, I usually love playing with my personal care and makeup products. I like trying new things but also have difficulty changing my habits, that's why I have a big- a very big- amount of products in the house. I wanted to show you some of them, the ones I love using more often. My main obsessions are fragrances, lipsticks and hand creams but I love them all.

Mac Blush
Chanel Eye shadow, nail polish and face moisturizer
Swissdent Toothpaste
Dior Addict&Idole
Carolina Herrera limited edition perfume
 OPI Nail Polish
Dermalogica face cleaning foam
Victoria's Secret & Nuxe hand & body cream&oil
YSL, Giorgio Armani & Lancome lipstick

Hafta sonlari eger evde zaman gecirme firsati bulursam, en buyuk zevklerimden biri, kisisel bakim urunlerim ve makyaj malzemelerimi duzenlemektir. Yeni urunleri denemeye merakli oldugum kadar, aliskanliklarimdan kolay vazgecemeyen biri oldugum icin, evdeki stok oldukca fazla. En cok kullandigim urunlerin bir kismini fotografta gorebilirsiniz.

The Knot: A Retrospective

On Tuesday, I've attended the party at Bottega Veneta store in Istanbul to see the retrospective of the iconic clutch; The Knot. I personally love Knot; very practical to use/carry at special occasions and goes well with almost all types of gowns. It was great to see different designs from previous seasons together.

Leather

Leather becomes very trendy in some seasons but I love wearing leather in all seasons and I have tons of clothes in leather; pants, leggings, jackets and dresses. This season also, leather is one of the hot items so I wanted to share some looks that may inspire you while combining your leather pieces with other outfits.
Also, after receiving many questions from you about the brand names, from now on, I will add the designer names of some key items in the pictures that I share.

Max Mara Coat
BCBG Max Azria leather skirt
Balenciaga handbag

Leather jacket by Atil Kutoglu
Dress from Maje
   
Jimmy Choo booties with leather leggings 






 






Some women say they are shy to wear leather and they have hard times trying to find something to match it. It is very simple actually. Try combining your leather pants&skirts with cardigans and leggings with a simple top and/or blazer for a softer look.

Deri, bircok donemde moda olup o sezonun en "in" parcasi olmustur. Ben deriyi cok sevdigimden genelde her sezon giyiyorum ancak deri giymeye cekinen bircok bayan oldugunu goruyorum cevremde. Aslında dogru kombin ile deriyi gunun her saati kullanabilirsiniz. Deri etek ve pantalonlarinizi hirkalarla, deri taytlarinizi da blazer tipi ceketler ile giyerseniz daha yumusak bir gorunum elde edersiniz.
