Istanbul is def so underrated. I fell totally in love with this city.
The vibe is super arty & I found damn cool vintage stores. One I can recommend is @balvintage near the Taksim Square. We lived around this corner and I shopped a fuckin unique peace - a vintage moschino jeans with a fitting jacket. (I'll post the Outfit soon 😎) Of course you can also feel the super bad political situation. Foreigners are all leaving to their hometowns and some activists and artists we got to know had to go to the countryside. It's so sad that people have to be afraid to walk in their own neighborhood. There already had been so many smoke-bomb attacks. The Government is just catching people randomly to put them into jail.
I'm praying for this beautiful place.
And whatever is happening here, it's worth a visit for sure.
