Fashion in Turkey and a Trip to Visit a Hollywood Jewelry Designer

I had an amazing adventure in Turkey checking out the local fashion, food and culture. I was able to visit both Istanbul and Cappadocia. I say it was an adventure because two days after we entered the country they stopped giving visas to America’s due to increased tensions with the US and Turkey. Luckily, we were okay to safely stay and still enjoy the country. Its as interest to be there during that time and we garner some fame “as the last American’s in Turkey.” 

The of Turkey were very kind and welcoming to us. Istanbul is a large metropolitan city with diverse fashion. It was great to see the high fashion area of Nisantasi. Also, to visit Yoruk Collection. They employ a jewelry designer who has created jewelry for many of the Hollywood movies like Lord of the Rings and The Other Boleyn Girl.

Below is fashion from the trip.

My Closet Essentials

My closet essentials include…

1. White blouse

A white blouse can take me from day to night and season to season. It can be dressed up or down with accessories, which is why I find it so timeless.

A leather jacket is my go to. It makes any outfit tres chic. If I had to choose between a leather jacket and jean – I would choose leather everyday. Let me know your choice in the comments.

3. Jeans and Black Heels

A good pair of jeans, ones that fit well, will show off your best assets.  The key is fit. Making sure your jeans are tailored to your body type will make your outfit look chic and expensive.

Black heels are a closet essential. It’s hard to choose one type of shoe, but a black heels really elevates an everyday pair of jeans.
