    Love the polka dots. I don’t like the longer, knee-length skirt in the second look though. The third look is my favourite.

  13. I have a hard time believing that such a short skirt (top picture) would be allowed in Turkey – a country that is Islamic (though officially secular). Now, the outfit on the model in the third and final picture: Beautiful.

    @ “Guppy” Honacker
    Have you been to Turkey before? I’ve been 3 times in the last 5 years, and I think if you went it would totally change your perceptions!

    Turkey does not feel like a ‘Muslim’ country, more like an Eastern European one. It is definitely exotic in parts, but I never felt I was travelling in a ‘Muslim’ country. People are always so surprised, because they think that Turks are Arabic (they’re not).

    Loving the outfit on the last girl, she looks great!

    love the huge envelope clutch in the 2nd pic and the bandage skirt in the 3rd photo

    nice captures of istanbul (esp on your other blog). that is how turks experience istanbul. whereas “tourists” never know where to really go other than lame touristy places and end up experiencing istanbul as a whole different place. so the point is… if you are visiting istanbul, it changes things dramatically if you know some cool people who are from there.

  29. all the outfits are great…especially the first

    haha, i loved the mini skirt comment. when tourists catch a cheap flight to Turkey, they could even lie topless under mediterranean sun! wow-surprise!

    turkey is not islamic, but the majority of the population is muslim. there is a great difference.

    btw, that tiny phrase of “though officially secular” actually explains why we had a war of freedom in 20s and founded a republic. so i’d say: a little respect is an instant cure for orientalism. stereotypes are not good for your health.

    lastly: i think saying “but turkey is not like a muslim country” as a counter arugment against “oh a mini skirt in islamic turkey!” is equally reflecting a stereotype against muslims. for ex, the country with the highest muslim population in the world is indonesia, not one of the arabic countries.

    oh and yes: nice pics.

  32. five stones says:

    love the voluminous polka dot top with that tight mini skirt!


  33. Jack Daniel says:
