August 31, 2012

Hi guys, the first thing I want to show you today is something really special to me. Elle Spain posted not only one, but two of my outfits on their website! Yesterday when I saw it the first time I was so in shock, but I am so happy, I can't even explain it :)

Istanbul Day 7: Taksim Square and Galata Tower

August 27, 2012

Hey lovelies, these are pictures from our last full day in Istanbul. We went to Taksim Square and went down the little shopping street, which to be honest wasn't that great, besides the fact that they had a Topshop (yay!). If you want to go shopping in Istanbul you should drive to a mall called Istinye Park, it is the best, it has everything from Zara to Nine West to Hermes.

Down the shopping street are two beautiful Christian churches, which are really worth the visit and at the end of the street, towards Galata Tower, there is a music street, it's called like that, because there are so many shops where you can buy instruments, and a lot of cute handcraft stores.

Then we went up the Galata tower, which I was very afraid of, since I am afraid of heights.. but the view was really spectacular, you could see nearly all of Istanbul from the top, it was truly breathtaking.

What do you think about my outfit?:)

PS: Sorry no German today as I am really in a hurry:)

What I wore: 
Forever 21 Shorts
Truly Madly Deeply Tee
Topshop Slippers
Givenchy Nightingale Bag 
Ray Ban Sunglasses

Night 5 in Istanbul: Cooking Class

August 19, 2012

Hey lovely readers, today a post about a very special night in Istanbul! My mom and I attended a cooking class at the Culinary Institute in Istanbul, if you have the chance you have to try it, the people are so nice and the food is delicious. The little entrance is right next to the Pera Museum, we almost missed it, but inside there was a cafe at the main level, which was decorated so beautifully and we got a chance to meet the cook before classes started. 

Then we went upstairs to the fifth floor were classes were held, the view of the sinking sun was stunning, and bathed the kitchen in a beautiful light. 
We cooked 4 different Turkish courses, a walnut-pepper dip, a yoghurt eggplant dip, a flat kebab, and dried apricots with walnuts, everything was so delicious! 

Our lovely cook Özlem Warren (hope I spelled that right:) ) held the class simultaneously in Turkish and English. Everyone had their assignment and then we would all go to the middle and Özlem showed us how to combine the ingredients and finish the dish. 
Not only was Özlem really great, our whole group was made up of really lovely people and there was such a nice atmosphere. If I would still be in Istanbul I would do it again this minute!

I really hope you enjoy the pictures and let me know what you think of my outfit:) 

What I wore: 
Topshop Leather Leggings
Topshop T-Shirt
Topshop Sequin Jacket
Topshop Slippers
Zara Necklace
Ray Ban Sunglasses
Miu Miu Clutch 

Ps yes I love Topshop;) 

Istanbul Day 4: Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace

August 15, 2012

The fourth day in Istanbul was a sightseeing day for us. Since it was Monday we couldn't visit Hagia Sofia, but we went to the Blue Mosque, the Cisterns and Topkapi Palace, which all were really beautiful. The insides of the Blue Mosque and the Topkapi Palace look almost like new, because they had a specific form of making the tiles, which looks breathtaking.
Sadly somewhere in the middle of Topkapi Palace my battery died, but my mom took some more pictures, which I have to get from her, but she is very protective of her camera, so we'll see:) 

I wore my leopard pants, because they were long, since we were visiting a mosque, but breathy, which was good, since it had about 38°C... not the perfect conditions for sightseeing, but what are you going to do... I paired it with a light black top and a big necklace and kept my hair in a braid. 
What do you think about my look?:)

What I wore:
Zara Pants
Topshop T-Shirt
Sam Edelman Flats
Givenchy Bag
Topshop Necklace
Ray Ban Sunglasses
Yves Saint Laurent Ring
Alexander McQueen, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Sfera and Topshop Bangles

Istanbul Day 2: Ortaköy and Bebek

August 8, 2012

 Good morning lovely readers, first of all thank you for being 300+ followers:) I am really excited every time my follower count goes over another 100:))
These are pictures from my second day in Istanbul, first of lunch at a waterfront restaurant in Bebek, I forgot the name, but I will update as soon as I know it. Then we went to Ortaköy checking out the little jewelry shops, which are definitely worth a visit, if you go upstairs some even make custom jewelry just for you.. that's why I can only show you my new purchases tomorrow.. After that we went to Istinye Park, which is a big mall that has everything form Hermes to Zara. On our way home we saw the most adorable little cat, I just had to put it up on the blog as well:)

Have a great day and let me know what you think about my outfit for the day:)

Flower Crown

This look is from last Friday, before meeting my girls for drinks and going out. I was at home, standing in front of the mirror in my shorts and t-shirt and thought something was missing, so I decided it was time to wear my flower headband, like I did here.
I really love it, and I got a lot of funny reactions in the club, a few asking if I was getting married;)

Now I am off to run some last minute errands and pack for my trip to Istanbul! I am so excited, I am definitely going to keep you updated via my Instagram (@thestyledepartment) and of course on the blog as well:)
