Fashion. Coming from Me? No way!

Yes, today, a fashion post is coming from me.

One of my awesome friends quite astonishingly (and not surprisingly as I may add) ended up in the fashion business and even started her own line and I am beyond thrilled to share this with you all. I somehow always knew she would go for the fashionista in her. Even when we were younger I adored her style (still do!) and wondered why she was so brave to try on new, colorful things whereas I remained the silent, gray girl. Today I know.

April is usually my month of shopping and finding cool new things. This month not so much. It bugs me a little but I know it's okay and I always have online-window shopping to help me get through my non-shopping phase. Here are a few of my favorite items (I may be biased here) I came across on my online-window shopping day that I'm just drooling over:

It may be spring and soon summer, but this coat is gorgeous!

Love this summer dress
Hello color! 
You don't need to be brave to pull this one off - it is awesome! 
It is a dress, but I would easily use it as a top, too. {scandalous maybe}
This is so cute, it goes with practically anything anytime.

How about a heel in this color?

Or just in simple and perfect black?
Love these pants, and the details to them.

This clutch adds magic to anything!

So want that purse - and I don't even like prints. ;) 
Ha, who am I kidding? I want all of these items.
I am immensely proud of my friend M. and her accomplishments.
The flowery dress is not from her, but it is equally gorgeous. Yay!

Unfortunately, the website is not yet available in English but it'll be up soon. Promised! 
Though looking at fabulous items does not need any language or translator, does it?! 
If you know Turkish you are more than welcome to go read and explore. You won't be disappointed. 
They are constantly working on the site so more information is going to be available soon!

So, what makes these items and so many more on that site special and stand out? 

We all look at fashion from all kinds of angles. These angles do not only include where we come from but also what we have learned in life, what we love, and where we are going. To me these items resemble passion for life, tradition, color, youth, and fun. Maybe it's the Turkish girl in me, or the L.A. lover, or even the Swiss girl - maybe it's all three combined but these items make me proud. It's who I am. It's what I feel and what I see when I look at carefully selected clothing items. It's not something you can define, it is something you feel. And let's be honest, fashion is about just that: the gut feeling that tells you that what you make or buy or long for or even wear is just what you needed in that specific moment.    
And as Coco Chanel so nicely said: 

Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. 
Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.

I couldn't have said it any better. 

What makes them stand out? - Just about everything and anything.
Hope you enjoyed my little fashion post.
Something I have never done before, and quite frankly loved doing it.
Okay maybe I'm a bit biased here, but still, it was fun.

I really like that khaki coat. Not sure how versatile it would be, but it sure is cute. That's half the reason why I can be so "plain" sometimes...if I can't wear it with a couple different things then I don't buy it. And leopard print pants don't go with much.

I'm lame.

That's so cool that your friend started her own line! Good for her. I love window shopping. I only did a tiny bit of shopping in CA, but I found shoes for the wedding I'm in this month, and two cute shirts at H&M. I did see those dresses that you posted last week while I was there.
