For a slave of fashion, who come from tropical country, a.k.a myself, visiting four season region gives me a lot of imagination and/or idea about what kind of outfit that I want to wear during the fall and winter season. Whether it is what kind of coat, what kind of boots, what kini of scarf, what kind of jacket, what kind of hat, what kind of glove, what kind of dress, etc. While my imagination is going wild, the weather actually makes me having difficult choice because I have limited collection of fall/winter outfit. I just don’t want to purchase a lot of fall/winter outfits because I realize that I do not need all of those attire when I return to my home country, Indonesia.

Anyway, last Christmas, I travelled to Istanbul of Turkey to celebrate Christmas and New Year. Yeah momma…it was winter. On the first few days in Turkey, the weather was pretty good. It was about 17 degree celsius, I had no problem with it. It was cold but it was not freezing cold. I still could deal with it.

As the day passed by, the weather got worse and worse. It even dropped to 1 degree celsius. Not just that, it was wet winter with rain and snow. It made me very conscious about what kind of outfit that I was going to wear because no matter how many layer I was wearing, I still suffered from the winter cold.

As the weather got worse, I asked myself should I dress for the fashion or should I dress for the weather? I decided that I must dress up for the weather. I ain’t gonna let myself suffering from the cold while enjoying the beauty of Constantinople. Would you?

Cheers
