If, by any chance, you are in Istanbul and you are somewhere near city centre…and what is more…you want a good coffee, than “Kronotrop” is the place you are looking for. Situated just couple of minutes away from the main street Istiklal, this tiny coffee shop is really easy to find. I should admit there I tried the best coffee in Istanbul. I try to avoid big sharks like “Starbucks” or “Coffee Bean”, but instead I search for something more interesting:) Just go to YenicarsI caddesi No. 5/b | Beyoğlu and you will find out everything by yourself.
I can’t truly explain my passion for all the fashion editorials with Peruvian theme. There is definitely something magical about them. These editorials are always about colors, prints, interesting silhouettes and breathtaking sceneries. This time Flavia De Oliviera dazzles on the pages of October 2013 issue of Woman Madame Figaro. Exceptional styling by Marta Lasierra is a great example how you can bring the fashion spirit of the country onto magazine pages. What do you say?
When I was younger I thought that coats are just for elder women and they make you look more like grandma. Ohm how wrong I was!!! Coats are fun. Bright coats, capes, pastel coats, boyfriend coats, fluffy coats, bomber coats, wool coats, jacquard coats, vintage coats,….I can keep on going. We can play with material, patterns, silhouettes, style. And according to Fall/Winter 2013 collections, designers do share this idea:) So if you didn’t find your perfect coat, you can consider
Nudes and pastels
And of course some street style inspiration…

So keep talking about the inevitable coming of autumn…I really want to change my approach to fall’s wardrobe. I have so many things in my mind, so we will see if I can really manage to do it. 1.Capes I want a cape for a long enough, so this year I decided to go to tailor and get it made. Why not to buy? Simply because I didn’t see anything I like in affordable price. And I already can think about so many outfits to complete with a cape, first which comes into my mind is casual lady-like: flared jeans, ankle boots and some cute sweater.
2. Bright coat Definitely a must-have for autumn season. Actually it seems to me that a bright piece of clothing in dull autumn weather can simply make you day, so a yellow-sh/mustard coat can absolutely make us happier:) I fell in love with this Topshop coat, love at first sight as they say. And sweatshirt+boyfriend jeans+comfy shoes is a great outfit for grey autumns.
3. Be a lady Somehow autumn seasons to me means staying comfy/jeans/leggings/oversized sweaters looks. And this is the thing I want to change this year. So this is how I imagine my future lady-like look: leather skirt, feminine blouse, ankle boots and belted tweed jacket.
4. Wedge booties I admit that I’m not a real fan of high heels, but wedges is my true love. I feel more stable (if I can say it) wearing wedges. That is why this season I’m looking for my perfect pair of wedge booties.
The era of Marc Jacobs as a creative director of Louis Vuitton is over. Unbelievable!!! Just yesterday Marc presented his last collection for LV as a part of Paris Fashion Week (spring/summer 2014). What can I say, Marc will be definitely missed! He knows how to shock the audience and he knows how to satisfy people. The show was so mysterious and gothic and I should say I didn’t really expect it. It’s hard to say whether I like this collection or not, but I can say one thing, it is very memorable. What do you say?
