I spent the last week in Turkey- more specifically, in Istanbul, the country’s capital. You might not think “fashion” when you think of Turkey, but believe it or not the country’s got a thriving fashion scene (I’m even having my soon-to-be-launched clothing line produced there)! My days were mostly filled with work, but I made sure I was able to get out and enjoy the Istanbul culture before I left at the Grand Bazaar.
The Grand Bazaar in Istanbul is amazing- it’s one of the largest markets in the world, spanning over 60 streets and boasting about 3,000 shops. They sell everything from food & spices to clothes, jewelry, & souvenirs, and the market attracts between 250,000-400,000 people a day. Wow.
I had a blast wandering through the market and picked out some awesome jewelry to bring home with me, which I’ll show you in a later blog post For the day trip I wore something super-easy to walk in: leggings, riding boots, and my fave fluffy jacket to keep me warm!
I’m off to Tokyo next- I’ll be sure to report back on the crazy style I encounter!
