The one and only insect that brings a smile on peoples face ==> Ladybirds..!! I love them..!! One of them landed on my necklace in Antalya. :)
I found this lovely necklace in the silver bazaar last week in Antalya. Many cultures consider Ladybird lucky..!! The Turkish name for the insect is “uğur böceği”, literally meaning luck bug. In many countries, including Russia, Turkey, and Italy, the sight of a ladybug is either a call to make a wish or a sign that a wish will soon be granted. I hope this one brings me lots of luck..!! :)
I was on vacation..!! 10 days in Antalya with the most important people in my life. Truly restful and relaxing vacation.. Mostly swimming, dining, drinking and having fun…
Antalya is situated on the Mediterranean coast of south-west Turkey and May is the perfect month to be there. Not full of tourists and not too hot. I came back home tanned and totally recharged..!!

”Turban” is one the attention-grabbing accessories and one of the most popular trend for spring/summer 2011. Prada, Moschino, Giorgio Armani, D&G and other designers used turbans in their collections. Especially the ones which are similar to Indien Sikhs’s turbans. Sex&The City star Carrie had one of those.
My favorite is turBands..!! What is TurBand?? TurBand is a great alternative to get the look of a turban with the functionality of a headband. I loved the ones from Milly’s 2011 Collection.
Here are some examples from big designers 2011 spring/summer collections for Turban and Turband. Polka dods, graphics and color bloking rule this area too..!!
Ok lets admit..!! Wearing turban can seem too daring. But it will definetely turn heads everywhere you go..!! If you don’t dare, you can try to start with turbands as a start.

2011 Spring Must-Have==> Bowtie Waist Belts..!!
Bowtie Waist Belt is an accessory that can make a monotone dress more interesting. It is definitely not an accessory only for your dress this year. You can complement pants, jeans and jumpsuits with such a belt. Famous brands like Marc Jacobs, Moschino, Elie Saab, Donna Karan and more have used these lovely Bowtie Waist Belts in their collections this year.
Marc Jacobs is my favorite brand when it comes to bowtie belts this year. Their wide and youthful belts look fantastic. I especially love the leather ones. These belts reminds me of Marc Jacobs’s Lola. The design of Lola’s bottle is looking like a big bowtie with similar colors.
Tiny and elegant models of these belts are used in Elie Saab 2011 collections. Silk is the common material for these bowtie belts.
Donna Karan has more simpler and elegant models of bowtie belts. You can change an ordinary shirt, skirt/pants combination and make your look more fun and interesting by using such a belt.
Ninna Richi and Moschino also have these bowtie belts in their collections this year. Not only belts but you can also try tying bows on hair, shoes, bags, watches and even jewelry.
You can change your entire look completely with a belt. It can be the focus of your entire outfit or just a pretty detail that finishes your look. Use your imagination and don’t be afraid to experiment. This summer is the time to try diffrent styles..!!
