83. ISTANBUL IN MOTION



Hey guys! Here's a little video of my weekend in Istanbul. KEYWORDS: dondurma, ayran, kokorec, kofte, midye, balik ekmek, kestane, gozleme or, in other words, all I've managed to eat in less than 48 hours.
To me Istanbul is precious mostly because of the street food culture that never ceases to amaze me.
I hope you like the video - I'll definitely need some feedback on that! :) so GO HIT THAT COMMENT SECTION LIKE YOU MEAN IT.

cheers

82. PURPLE STAIN

Q: which city have I visited four times in the past year and was still super excited to visit again?
A: Istanbul, of course!
I've had the most amazing weekend there - even though it was a work trip, I tried to get the best of it. So here's me, casually strutting through my fave town in a totally eye-catching purple/black ensemble.
Living in an oh-so-cold country has taught me to seek every opportunity to shoot in weather-inappropriate outfits. This jacket has been hanging around for weeks and now it was like "quit leaving me hanging! i want my dose of spotlight on the blog!" So I had no other choice but to take it with me - otherwise I wouldn't be able to wear it until April, brr. Although whoever said wearing a croptop in rainy Istanbul is fine is an idiot. Oh wait, that was me..

81. DO SVIDANYA ANYA

Hey y'all!

I hope you had an amazing weekend. I know I did - on Friday I turned 21! DAMN! There is almost nothing that can hold me back now, and it feels absolutely amazing. I had the best party, too - girls only, wearing their most beautiful dresses, dancing in a pool of glitter and confetti to 90's and 00's music - can a gal ask for more?

Turns out, a gal can. I received the most amazing, thoughtful gifts, for which I'm eternally grateful. I wore a perfect vintage black beaded dress that made me look like a shiny black crow (which, in fact, looked fabulous despite what it may sound). I've torn apart a diamond-shaped piƱata. I've made all my friends stick temporary tattoos on them. (I myself did a full sleeve - which until this day hasn't quite washed off and makes me feel SO BADASS). I've had two sick birthday cakes (both with hashtags on them!). Speaking of which, I even had my own hashtag, LOL! Look it up on Instagram, haha. This night was pure perfection, something that happens maybe once in a lifetime. I feel pretty badass about it. Thus, I am posting a few party pics that I hope you will enjoy. And if you don't, my friends will look you up, hunt you down and make you like them. Because these gals are the best.

80. HALLOWEEN


Hey guys, guess what?

This is my first Halloween outfit post! This is probably the first time I've dressed up for the holiday since I was...eleven? My dream was to dye my hair white/grey and after spending some thinking which outfit/character would go best with this hair color, I had no other choice but to go as KAISER, i.e. Karl Lagerfeld. It was a blast! Such an easy last-minute costume, too - you just use all essentials you have in your wardrobe: black sunglasses, white shirt, black jacket/tie/pants/shoes and voila! You're done. For creating an even more recognizable look I put on fingerless black gloves and some silver necklaces. Too bad I was missing his statement rings! But I'm guessing all of the above + dyed hair and a few fake wrinkles did their job perfectly. It was a night of endless selfies and compliments, which, I admit, felt pretty good. I even got my friend to dress up as Coco herself, which was kind of lovely.

Who did you go as this Halloween? Tell me in the comments below

79. OCTOBER?!

Wow. Seriously, wow. I've been MIA here for quite a while now - two months (!) - and it felt like a lifetime. I remember the last week of august, when I was planning to do an end-of-simmer post with photos from disposable cameras and top instagram shots. But noooo - work has sucked me in good.
Here's a brief summary of what happened in these 60 days:
- I went to Milan for 7 days in September to visit Milano Moda Donna in frames of #OpenRussianFashion program. Besides being given a chance to work with hottest names of Russian fashion scene (Laroom, Alena Akhmadullina, Luda Nikishina, osome2some and many others), I was lucky enough to visit a couple of shows on the last day of MFW and even be captured outside the shows!
