Fall Essentials

Fall is the best season to get dressed, – for me at least. I already did some of my shopping for this fall and here are some of the most essential pieces currently in my wardrobe that I think I will wear again and again…

Sonbahar giyinmek icin en guzel mevsim, – yani en azindan bana gore oyle. Ben bu sonbahar icin alisverimin bir kismini yaptim, ve iste sizebu mevsim defalarca giyecegimi dusundugum birkac parcam…

London.

Even though I said I would make posts while I’m in London, the internet connection was very bad so I wasn’t able to do so. Anyway we had a very busy week, I don’t remember feeling more exhausted in my life. I literally don’t feel my feet. But it was worth it. We ordered my bridal, Ahmet’s tuxedo and I even bought my shoes! The only clue I can give about my bridal is that it’s from Vera Wang and it is LACE – I couldn’t imagine myself wearing anything else on my wedding day… Anyway, some days we couldn’t even have time and energy to go to dinner. I couldn’t take many photos, but I still have some. So let’s do it in order…

Londra’dayken de post yapacagimi soyledigimi biliyorum ama internet cok kotuydu ve cok yorucu bir hafta gecirdik. Cok fazla fotograf cekmeye vaktim olmadi, bazi gunler yemek yemeye bile vaktimiz ve enerjimiz kalmadi diyebilirim. Ama herseye degdi cunku en onemli iki isi hallettik bile. Ben gelinligimi ismarladim, Ahmet de damatligini aldi. Ben ayakkabilarimi bile aldim dusunun yani 🙂 Gelinligim Vera Wang’den ve hakkinda verebilecegim tek ipucu dantel olmasi – kendimi baska bir gelinlik icinde dusunemiyorum zaten. Neyse, sirasiyla fotograflara gecelim. 

LONDON DAY 1:

Checked in our beautiful hotel, “The Langham” at nearly 5 a.m. Woke up at 8 a.m in the morning, had breakfast, went to Vera Wang bridal, then to Browns bridal, had dinner at Il Baretto. Of course we went to Liberty, Selfridges and Topshop during the day.

Muhtesem otelimiz “The Langham”a sabah 5te vardik, ertesi gun (3 saat sonra :)) 8’de uyandik, kahvalti edip Vera Wang’e, arkasindan Browns Bridal’a gittik, aksam Il Baretto’da yemek yedik. Tabii ki arada Liberty, Selfridge ve Topshop’a gittik – iki elimiz kanda olsa bile.

Hakaan Perfection

A Turkish designer that we can brag about all day long. Hakan Yildirim won the ANDAM Prize last year, and this year he is everywhere.

Hakaan Fall 2011 Ready-to-wear collection is just glamourous! With nearly all top models on the runway, the colors black, white and red make their most amazing statement in this year’s biggest trend: “masculine – feminine”.

Available in shopbop now – I say don’t miss!

Hakkinda ovunebilecegimiz bir Turk modacisi daha. Hakan Yildirim ANDAM odulunu gecen yil kazandi ve o zamandan beri her yerde! Sonbahar 2011 Ready-to-wear koleksiyonu ise sahane.

Apple For A Good Cause

There is a part in all of us that wants to contribute to the world while consuming. From that reason, brand + NGO cooperations or fair trade certified products have been so popular in recent years. Starbucks began to sell fair trade certified coffee, Marks & Spencer joined ACEV to sell products that contributes to the NGO and McDonald‘s has little see-through RMHC donation boxes in front of its cashiers for you to “not waste” but “spend” your changes for a very good reason – “change a child’s life“. All these big brands have definitely made significant impact for the ones in need. One of the most successful brand – NGO collabration campaigns is without a question “RED“. Red is an idea that believes in collective help to make little changes in the world. Red worked with iconic brands like Nike and Armani, and generated over $170 million fund since 2006. I’m sure many of you are already aware of the wonderful campaign of RED with Apple. But in case you don’t know, here is a wonderful product you can purchase (for those who own an Ipad2 :)) and make a difference in the world.

Hepimizin bir tarafi harcama yaparken, bir yandan da birseylere katkida bulunmak istiyor. Iste bu yuzden adil ticaret dedigimiz (fair trade) sertifikali urunlerin satisi ya da buyuk markalarin yardim kuruluslariyla olan ortak calismalari gun gectikce populerlesiyor. Starbucks yillardir fair trade sertifikali kahve satiyor, Marks&Spencer Turkiye’de mukemmel bir kurulus olan ACEV‘le ortaklasa bir kampanya yurutuyor ve ACEV’in urunlerini satiyor, McDonald’s kasalarinda “bir cocugun hayatini degistirin” kampanyasina katki saglayabileceginiz RMHC bagis kutularindan var. Butun bu buyuk markalar, son yillarda buyuk paralar toplayarak ihtiyaci olanlara verdi, ve dunyanin bircok yerinde kucuk de olsa bir fark yaratmayi basardi. Bu kampanyalarin en basarililarindan biri suphesiz “RED” kampanyasi. Red, kucuk guclerinde birleserek buyuyebilecegini, ve buyuk farklar yaratabilecegine inanan basit bir fikirden dogmus. RED, Nike ve Armani gibi dunyanin en buyuk markalariyla calisti. 2006 yilindan beri $170 milyonu asan bir gelir elde etti ve Afrika’da cok insanin hayatini degistirdi. Eminim bircogunuz RED ve Apple isbirliginden haberdarsiniz. Eger degilseniz de, Ipad2’si olanlar – iste size alabileceginiz harika bir urun!

Hello the new “it” bag, – YSL chyc cabas!!! Even got in style.com‘s radar, this bag is without a question most popular baby in town. It’s sheepskin leather, size and magnetic Y closure are everything you could ask for in a city bag! It can be bohemian and also classic. Starting from $1,995, you need to decide which color you want the most very carefully because all of them are gorgeous! Celebrities like Sienna Miller and Leighton Meester already have one. They prefer brown but I am totally in love with the blue and the grey.
