Bazaar bunny

In Istanbul I couldn't help notice how the girls were dressing there and the best place to people watch was sitting in Cafe Sous overlooking the entrance to Istanbul University and the Grand Bazaar (where I got my ceramic bunny who liked my tribute to his homeland so much he came out to vogue for the camera). What stood out most to me was how many stylish people were wearing red and olive green. It was everywhere, and all the women pulled it off without looking like a Christmas cookie exploded all over them. Since it was snowing today I rewound my wardrobe back to the chilly rain of Turkey in February and took a chance on green and red. I'm impressed with myself that I survived the day in these shoes including battling through Times Square to go to a conference uptown before work. My shoes were less impressed with the snow and salt though, I hope those marks come off.

  1. What a lovely outfit! That vintage bag is particularly catching. Well done with those shoes, I would've been out of them in a snap.

  13. I really love this outfit, both shades are muted so it doesn't look too festive and the military style sweater contrasts well with the feminine dress.

  14. You look great in this outfit... those are some of my favourite colours to put together, and I love the bag and shoes. I was super disappointed to read about the weather this morning though, I wasn't even planning to bring a coat. Yikes.
