Hot'n Cold and ... Yes'n No...

I never ever thought that I would say this...I want it be cold again..Its very hot in Istanbul...I was out of work and going to gym but I skipped...I'm too lazy these days.Its because of d@mn humid weather...Today I thought of stores I want to frequent next.I also thought of my life.But I skipped then...I can't wait for tomorrow.I will be hunting for stylish shoes tomorrow.I will walk around and look at the stores.I love checking out stores I lust.Every single brand in Istanbul is on sale now.I am posting sequin look pictures of me.My love for sequin is never gonna end until I'm very very very old...hahah!:D I am now digging for sequin leggings.I know they are so MJ...Once back in undergraduate days I had a denim that has sequins on it and when my friend saw me wearing that denim first had told me I look like Michael Jackson.I LOL that I remember:) As now...I am lusting sequin leggings.I dont know where I can find them but they are in my mind.I also love sequin tops.Below pictures are sequin look in my style.I am in love with all those sparkles...

when you are bored and its very hot outside...

Its sunday and I'm at home...We all know sundays are mostly boring right? This is a shy weekend cause I want it this way.LOL.As its so hot outside I played up with my clothes and had some styling shoots...My shoes have ribbons on it (I remember I bought them for this fact...I love ribbons. I'm not a fan of leggings but they were part of my dress when I bought.And I must admit it...I had never ever wore this dress for outside. I think I will wear it this fall.To somewhere...I hope... :)

Sleep and sleep...

I am on a tired saturday.The humid is killing me cause its very hot!People outside must be crazy cause the sun is really burning!I need to go to the gym but I'm dead tired and its very hot and I'm at home...I have late news.I'm on Susie's Style Bubble representing Istanbul as a Turkish fashion blog in her "worldwide blog list".Thank you for adding me Susie!:)I love to check out different countries' fashion blogs.
And RIP Michael jackson...He was one of my fashion icons cause he's been a real trendsetter of all times.He was the real king of POP.Life is so short isn't it? We are here today and we are gone tomorrow...Fashion is like that either...its very "in" today and then its "out" tomorrow.I guess I'm on a summer bummer.I love summers but I'm not on vacation yet and working on summer days sucks!I need a vacation and it may be on late july...june is almost!I'm not hunting this weekend but next weekend I'll haul haul...its sale everywhere.I love weekends.I gotta sleep...

Create Balmain Jeans

I just read how to DIY Balmain inspired jeans.I see that lots of people are not over Balmain distressed jeans yet.I love the Balmain look that we are all hooked up cause Christophe Decarnin is so talented.In Balmain's spring '09 runway he sent models in jeans in various states of disrepair to the runway.How to achieve the distressed jean look?Here's a tip I've read...

Step 1: Bunch areas on old black jeans and pour a bit of Clorox on each.When you're happy with the color rinse out the bleach.

Step 2: Sand the knees and the fronts of the thighs with heavy grit paper.

Step 3: Slice the areas you want ripped and pick apart the fibers in the weave.

Step 4: Machine wash and dry your version -- twice.That distresses clothes even more..

There are inspiring Balmain-inspired looks in Lookbook so you better check out:)

At One Love the most depressing song was performed by Starsailor: Tell me its not over!...Today I thought of people that I left behind on my way back to home.I left those people behind me cause I don't want to be hurt and I want no more harm.I don't want anyone to hurt me.Its self protection to stay alive.The fact is I never wanted to leave those people (friends and significant ones and someone and noone)...I miss people I use to be friends with (maybe bestfriends) or hang out with but as time passes by and you feel that you're not that precious in their lives you move on.That's the cruel life game(fashion is cruel to their people, too!Designers change,fashion brands change,trends change...).And...You move on or you get hurt.You get hurt in many times by their words and by their behavours and by their incapable lifestyles...You get lost.Today I've remembered why I left them behind.I don't like despressive songs.But you realize its over someday.And today we have Placebo concert in Istanbul.I couldnt make it to the concert but its ok.

Back from 2 days One Love Festival

Due to my Sabah newspaper interview facebook friend requests looks crazy on my page.Thank you for visiting my fashion blog and following my work.I really feel great cause fashion and style is my life.And...I had an amazing weekend.I was at One Love festival.I'm going to post all the pictures later.One Love festival was great!Yesterday I wore my blue dress that I bought new from Kate Moss for Top Shop.I love Top Shop dresses because of the cuts.Festival was amazing.Saturday was great with Tricky,M83 and Klaxons performances.Today was d@mn crowded due to popular bands Royksopp and Portecho and Starsailor performances.God I love PORTECHO!I love the way they dance:) and Royksopp's performance was AMAZING!I can go to any festival they perform in Europe again.Fashion of One Love was mostly entertaining and sometimes boring.I am tired of seeing men in black wayfarers.No style?So style?Wayfarers rock!

I woke up at 07:00 am today(despite being soooo tired) and hell no I don't have to go to work today...It's because Sabah newspaper's fashion editor interviewed with 7 Most stylish Turkish young people and I'm one of them:) And the interview is pressed as headline of Sabah's saturday addition in fashion pages. We are the cover of Saturday addition and fashion pages' headline as "Most Fashionable Young Turks" in Lookbook. Its great cause I've always been into fashion and styling and now its becoming huge. My fashion blog istanbul fashion addict is also mentioned in my interview. In my picture I'm with my green flower dress(Kate Moss for Top Shop) and in group picture I wore a Zara dress and Elle high heels. Its great to be on Sabah's fashion pages.yay!!:)istanbulfashionaddict is becoming more and more trendy these days:)and I'm waiting for fashion magazines to discover me.LOL.

I was@Galatasaray.Today.

Today from Cihangir,I went to Galatasaray.There's a quick way to Galatasaray and you rush to Galatasaray in 5 minutes.. LOL.I even skipped Cezayir Sokağı because I was going to check out for a tee but I found and skipped the tee, and I went after a dress that I'm curious about the skirt ends.I bought a dress and I think its pretty on me.I know a place that sells cool design shoes.I've spotted so many new boutiques like second hand or design...I did't check them out.I was in a hurry.I checked out some stores in a rush.Oh why I did not frequent Bershka?I haven't checked out Bershka for a little while.I looked at the shoe shop's window but didn't pick one and we know I was in a rush.So I didn't check out whats inside the store.So I walked away.I have something on my mind about what to wear to One Love festival.Do I believe in love?One love or Free love?Like what Depeche Mode tells...

If you've been hiding from love
If you've been hiding from love
I can understand where you're coming from
I can understand where you're coming from

If you've suffered enough
If you've suffered enough
I can understand what youre thinking of
I can see the pain that you're frightened of...

And when you don't want any more love's free love...

And shoe addiction is one love.Who doesn't love buying shoes?I'm waiting for big day saturday.I'll post later the big day saturday news.Tomorrow is friday and I'm looking forward to it:)

Little Kitten be mine

would you rather buy a new pair of adidas allstar sneakers?Or would you rather pick this kitten?I took both pictures...I dont know why I did't catch the kitten and take it with me forever...I was on a lunch break at Nişantası and I was drinking my Frap and this kitten showed up next to me with its family.The red nail polish hand is mine in the picture.It was staring at me.I left it there but I could have never forgotten.little kitten.

Party Pictures

I love checking out what people wear from cobrasnake's party pictures.They are fun.Here are my picks from his pictures.I think they are inspiring.

Piece of Me

I've always kept my personal stuff with a love connection.Here are some of my up-close-and-too-personal stuff that I use or look at, everyday, photographed by me.The green cat in the unicef postcard is a close friend of mine.

Stockholm Syndrome

Next year I want to travel to Stockholm to check out Nordic style,individual street style and I want to see Stockholm School of Economics.(I was dreaming a phD there but I don't want to spend my 5 years as a student).I love vacations spending on the beach with sunny weather and golden sands but I can spend a city summer at Stockholm.And I will visit Stockholm someday.Soon!

No, he can't read my poker face!

I used to recieve more compliments from guys and now I'm freaking out I'm recieving tonz of compliments from women....for my hair.OMG!?Why?I still get tonz of compliments from guys(hahahah!! I know I'm so nerd lol) but women are interested in my haircolour.Last sunday a woman at gym staring at me for a long time came up to me and asked me about my haircolour.yes!(I'm use to this situation cause so many women come up to me and ask me about my hair its no big deal anymore).But she asked me if I know the number of the shade of my haircolor???I said "no" (no regrets) and walked away.I've never been mean to people but some started to freak me out!!By the way, I'm feeling sad for mean men(I'm talking about personality).The worst thing that can happen is a mean man(I'm so cool I can't smile moves).Anywayz.I'm so cool with my life.I want to drink Mojito at the beach.Today I thought of that.Yes!At weird times weird memories come to my mind.I better drink a Mojito soon.maybe this weekend.No way!I'll be on press at weekend (I'll post about it when it happens this weekend.yay!:) and also,I'm going to be style hunting on weekend(wait for street style pictures:)

In Istanbul we have sympathy

I am waiting for very next week cause I'm going to be on Efes Pilsen One Love Festival happening at my school's campus: santralistanbul.I went to courses day and night there since 2007 and after courses are over one love festival happens there since last year.The good thing is that this year I'm going to listen Portecho live.I love their music for a long time and the fact I missed Freshtival(the new festival in Istanbul that I couldn't make it there due to visiting my colourist day...I know!!!).I'm now wondering about festival style.Are you curious about what I'm going to wear to festival for 2 individual days?LOL.I'll wear something festival spirit ok? I hope Portecho would perform Sympathy on sunday.I'm looking forward to it.I'll be shooting my campus...

In this town
All streets lead to sea
All girls and boys
Leave by A.M. 3
In this town
All the rooftops glimmer
All the engines stop
And you hear the silence of your lover

In this town
We have no sympathy

I always wonder the town they mention is Istanbul.To me, we have sympathy in istanbul:)

what's on my mind?

That maybe its not good to be a part of something.That maybe I better frequent the places that I never frequent.And that I realize I don't like starbucks frappuccino anymore...And that I look at views,landscapes and sometimes there's nothing on my mind or sometimes my mind is full loaded with many unimportant things...And I look at shapes...People frequent gym like me...Do I like gym?I do it for health...I feel stronger since 3-4 months that I started to pilates.I have a better shape...not weak.not fat.not ironic.just stronger.I look at an old picture of me last year and I say my arms were so weak.I work out.Now that I can kick ya!LOL I'm not a superhero-yet...but I'm the upcoming someONE :) so beware.. beware!!! out!!watch out!!!

Istanbul and the fashion spot membership

I was trying to be a member of the fashion spot 2 years ago that its invitation only membership and you have to be in the fashion industry as a member.I searched for members to send me an invitation to become a member but I couldn't find anyone to send me an invitation.I remember I paged to fashion spot and told them that I'm passionate about fashion and I'm a fashion blogger.They told me they'll consider and then 2 years ago they've send me an invitation.I've become a member that made me so happy.I was starting to Bilgi University finance master of science and had no time for anyhing during 2 years.(but I was frequenting book stores to buy cds,the economist and harpers bazaar or vogue).I couldn't be an active tfs member.That I am graduating in june I feel relished...and happy...and nothing.But I'm back to breathing and living I like to frequent the fashion spot.There's an istanbul threat there for street style of global cities and I remember last week I saw someone was asking if wearing shorts is dangerous in the city...I was like wtf? but I didn't really write anything.Truth is its up to you.I wear skirts and shorts and people wear shorts around the city in Istanbul.Anywayz...I had a long day.I'm d@mn tired.Green cat in the old unicef postcard is looking at me and I look back.Its on my desk forever...near my books and mags...

Early in the morning walking down to work and Placebo concert in Istanbul

I'm having bizarre moments lately.I walk down the streets(alone) and feeling like I have an object lens looking at people staring at objects and views.Do I feel like a camera?Hell no!:D lol.I'm just observing.I'm the observer of streets.Lately people from all around the world especially tourists ask me about Istanbul.It makes me happy cause I want to help.And I want to present Istanbul.I can introduce my city with beautiful parts and what should be seen.And fashion blogging is fun.I feel more humanitarian when I write.I love observing and writing.That's what I do to go on.I feel that I'm enhancing day by day.And lately I know Placebo is visiting Istanbul for a concert.I guess they are on a world tour something.But I maybe can't make it to the concert cause its not weekend(unfortunately its on tuesday something!).I listen to Placebo when I'm walking alone.Or at shuttle...or sleeping on the way they are on my ears singing

"...Sucker love, a box I choose.
No other box I choose to use.
Another love I would abuse,
No circumstances could excuse.

In the shape of things to come.
Too much poison come undone.
Cuz there's nothing else to do,
Every me and every you.
Every me and every you,
Every Me...he..."

I walk down Taksim early in the morning through my work a few hours after night clubbers went to bed and the toast and sandwich maker restaurants that served hamburgers to clubbers till dawn, have started to serve toasts and tea as breakfast to people going to work whom drop by,early in the morning,...,in my head just lyrics of placebo walking through where I work ,me,buying toast and drinking tea before I go to work every morning,every you,every me...

I can't remember that club's name but its ok

I'm a sucker for Babylon...I woke up to a sunshine day today and I'm going to my pilates class in an hour.I just wish I were going to swim at Çeşme babylon beach today.I'm so in vacation mood.Although I work hard during weekdays I love weekends.LOL.The fact is I might be hanging out all saturday cause I like to chill out.I should have been a siesta gürl forever!I'm not surfer gürl but I like surfers.LOL.By the way I get tonz of compliments for my vibrant haircolour.I wont be blonde again.Its ok cause I like my hair this way.Mostly I like it wavy.I had a photoshoot last week and I'm going to tell you details after its done.And I might be going to Asmalımescit today.I need a Miller.Oh yeah!
