Philly Fun!!

I had half day from work last Friday and left to visit a good friend of mine in Philly. I decided to splurge and take the train up instead of the bus and got quickly there in 2 hours. I cabbed it over to her place where we talked and ended up going to pub for great food and pumpkin beer (Elysian is D-elicious!!! ). Met a few of her friends, had more drinks, then headed out to see singer/songwriter musicians at ???? (I forget where). The venue was small but had a great layout with seats and tables and a bar in the back (where we sat). Would totally come again (with livelier music and less drinking) because we left at 11:00 and crashed as soon as I got home. And to think that once upon a time, we used to go to bars and clubs at 11:00 and dance the night away. NOT ANYMORE!!

Saturday was cold. I didn't bring warm clothing except my new leather jacket which I LOVE!!! and definitely wore out. Luckily the day got warmer later on. We did some shoe shopping and found the pair of boots I have been forever looking forever: Doc Marten Marcie Wedges. They were the last pair and were my size. Of course I grabbed them quick since they were meant to be MINE!! Lori bought 2 pairs and with that we went along our merry way.

Some Music to Soothe the Soul

It's rainy out and I just want to stay in bed and listen to music all day long. Unfortunately, I'm at work so I'll just have to listen here. This an homage to the 80s with a new new wave band from Australia called Cut Copy. They've been around for almost 10+year but I love their sound. Kind of reminds me of New Order. Enjoy.

Cut Copy - "Light and Music"

Turkish Festival 2012

This is what I wore to the Turkish Festival here in DC. It was a beautiful day to celebrate and enjoy the Turkish culture with lots of dancing, music and food all of which I'm familiar with since I have quite a few friends from there.  

This is traditional jacket is usually worn by a man but I tried it on anyway.

Lots of people.

Great food. I had my donar kabob.

And finally a few fashionable people that I happened to take photos of.
