In My Shoes With Gulin Cetin
Tell us about yourself? What makes you tick?
My name is Gulin and I am a fashion & lifestyle content creator. I am originally from Turkey but I moved to the US 8 years ago to do my PhD and have been living the dream ever since! So I definitely have a nerdy side and I enjoy reading, writing and going to museums. I absolutely love creating, playing dress up for different concepts, and storytelling!
How has your dress sense evolved? What has (or hasn’t) influenced it.
My sense of style has overgone a drastic change, actually. Before moving to the US and starting out with my blog, I was drawn to neutral colours and my wardrobe consisted of mostly dark colours. Now it's completely different, with lots of pastel colours like pink, peach, and baby blues! I think it's definitely been influenced by the trends on social media and my favourite influencers such as @tezza, @leoniehanne, and @taramilktea.
Show us your wardrobe staple, what can’t you live without?
I can't live without my hats and hair accessories!
Do you have a big splurge?
Hats are usually my biggest splurge! I splurged on a Jacquemus hat last year and wore it so many times! I think they complement an outfit so well. The only challenge of having too many hats is to find an effective way to store them!
What does ‘style’ mean to you?
“I do not have a fashion icon, but I love playing with styles and moods according to the occasion and creating an eclectic style mixing up vintage and modern”
