How it is done

This is what I wore to a work show at my friend's house last night (Thu)!
I always figure out what 'Kika Paprika' pieces I am going to wear but leave the accessorizing and shoe/purse selection to the end. Which usually takes quite a while cause I try on bunch of different pieces until I feel it is just right!
For this I just looooove how this necklace looked. I was worried it was taking away from the outfit and not showcasing the clothes. But then realized although people would admire my necklace on me majority would never want to wear something so chunky and big anyway.

This is the gorgeous 'Joey' jacket which is the statement piece of the Spring/Summer collection...
It came in my size and in this navy color in my sample pack so I love pairing this with the whites.

I just feel every bit of effort spent on acquiring this Marni for H&M necklace, such as getting in line at 6:30 AM was worth it!
The cool thing is the blooms are all flexible. So you can actually close or open up the blooms and move the flowers on the leather string anyway you like it.

Thread show find: Suede fringed bright red purse!

And inside I wore the super versatile and beautiful 'Ava' dress by Kika Paprika. This can also be worn as a knee length or midi skirt when pulled down. I love the a-line cut of the skit. And no slip underneath and still not see through!

I just love how chunky these Lita's look...
When I was growing up I had such a complex about my skinny legs and would never wear chunky shoes like these that only accentuate them but now I kind of like the contrast...

My Turkish friend hosted a 'Kika Paprika' show at her house. It was great speaking lots of Turkish and making new friends. There were also two English speaking guests though so I did my presentation in English. My mom joined us so she can show her beautiful new outfit in Kika and to help out style the guests.
Was a long party. I didn't get home until almost 1 AM!

  1. I loved your Kika outfit a lot with that Marni necklace. The shoes I don't know what to say still:))) The colors great together red navy and white. Now that I see my picture I don't like the scarf worn hanging it is hiding my waist. Love Ebru's top on her with blue necklaces and her shoes are super cute!

  2. Beautiful necklace, Love the fact that you can change from closed blooms to open ones.
    beautiful styling here!

  3. The navy jacket is fabulous! What a really cool statement necklace too.

  4. Yeehaa! Another mommy blogger! I've been looking for mommies and bumped into you! Come visit my blog and follow each other?

    p.s. That white dress is a killer! You rock it well, very edgy and funky especially paired with those booties! :)

  5. you have to be the coolest mom out there wearing Litas... and crazy awesome plaid ones at that! i like how you kept the outfit simple but with awesome shoes and necklace!


Love to hear your thoughts...
