Let’s go back to the first moments spent in Istanbul, last Monday. We arrived in the city at around 4 pm and we decided to explore a bit the part of Taksim and Beyoglu, getting immediately excited for the life of this city…

Torniamo indietro ai primi momenti passati a Istanbul, lunedi scorso. Arrivati in città verso le 4 abbiamo esplorato un po’ la parte di Taksim e Beyoglu, rimanendo subito affascinati dalla vita di questa città…

    I know you're in love with your new Hermes bracelet, but I don't think it necessarily goes with the rest of your otherwise soft and light outfit. Beautiful as always though! 🙂

    Hello Chiara,

    I live in Istanbul for 15 years now (on the Asian side), if you have any questions about anything related to the city please feel free to ask me. You can contact me from gizemp@sabanciuniv.edu

    Have fun!

    Reply to gizem

    Love your chunky bracelet and charm ring – you're rocking both in Istanbul!

    Reply to Melanie

    I'd really love to know which hair straightener you're using for making your hair look like that. Casual look and stunning as usual. Loving notably the necklace and the Balenciaga bag.

    Chiara, il viaggio a Istambul che ho fatto nel 2005 è stato uno dei più belli della mia vita. E'davvero una città bellissima e piena di fascino.
    Questa sera parto per Amsterdam. Ci sei mai stata? Che look ti ispira la Venezia del Nord?
    Baci e godetevi la Turchia!

    Reply to B.Inspired

    Darling, I know you are on vacation and having a marvelous time — thoroughly enjoying your beautiful photos — but be careful about wearing such revealing clothes in a Muslim country. It can be viewed as insulting to the culture. Fabulous necklace and shoes!

  • Hi Chiara!

    I was in Istanbul and I noticed that many girls were dressed more conservatively. My Turkish-American friends, who are not Muslim, said that they usually do not wear short shirts or shorts when they are in Turkey, just to be respectful. I noticed this when I was there last year. Do you ever adapt your clothing to acknowledge the different cultures and religions of the places you visit?


    Reply to thewhiteplates

        This has nothing to do with respect, we’re wearing everything but just in appopriate places.

  • Hi Chiara!

    Ah I've been following your blog ever since I got back from Roma, where I lived for four months. During my stay there, I also traveled around to other cities in Europe including Barcelona and Istanbul. And so I enjoy seeing your pictures from these areas and reading your blog in general. It reminds me of my time there and the fashion tips I picked up in Italia.

    And the way you dress is absolutely chic. I'm back in the US and I try to emulate your dressing as much as I can! Great style and lovely photography! 🙂

  • I went to Turkey for 2 nights and 3 days and i made an arrangement with this company for a package tour and i spent a good time in Istanbul. We visited the beauty places of this marvelous city. First day we went on a dinner cruise on Bosphorus and i had a lot of fun with so many kinds of dance shows and good dinner too. I loved the mezzes. Second day we went on a tour and visited the Sultanahmet aria http://www.privatetoursinistanbul.com Every corner looks like a part of history. Hagia Sophia and Chora Church are very beautiful museums. The mosaics of these basilicas are very good protected. I was fascinated. I badly recommend you to go on a cruise on Bosphorus at night. Istanbul looks very different at night is shining. I had a very enjoyable Dinner cruise on Bosphorus accompanied by Turkish Shows. I will definitely visit again Turkey. Thank you for your services.
