Şeymel Vintage

Upstairs is a bigger room with warm and friendly vintage boutique owner Yasemin Genç,her sales assistant and vintage addict shoppers.They were so warm and friendly I loved the athmosphere and their positive place.

I was searching for Şeymel Vintage (location) like since winter.It's like a hidden place at Galatasaray...I've even e-mailed them for address description (what a shame on me lol).Yesterday I had some time and found the place after turning 2 times between same narrow roads.I stared at the shop window first.There was some girl trying a vintage pair of shoes.I was staring at her dress and bag.They were gone and I was in.I checked out the bags and that moment I wanted to buy one of them.I just looked at the dark red one (almost plum).Then I went upstairs to check out more.There I met Ms.Yasemin.She was chatting with some customers who are so into Şeymel.They bought sunglasses and bags,paid money and gone.Then I checked out many pieces...There they were so gorgeous and REAL vintage that you can feel when you touch the clothes and hats and...hats...there were so many gorgeous hats there.I have to try one next time.And gorgeous dresses...I had no time but that gorgeous handbag was in my mind.We first thought that was sold-like a minute ago-but when we went to the first floor it was there:) I bought that vintage handbag only.But next time I'll make time for many more pieces.I loved the place.Şeymel is a wonderful vintage boutique that İstanbul needs.And vintage fanatics should frequent and support Şeymel.It's one of my best shopping experiences and in my favorites list on top.I will go there again...soon!

During all summer every tuesday between 18:00-20:00 pm with "Şeymel Workshop" you can create&build your own vintage accessorises. (Joining to workshop: 25 TL)


and here's the pictures of my vintage bag from Şeymel

Yes ...Remember I've told you that they were ran out of my size in my dream shoes at Top Shop like 2 weeks ago?(check out my previous posts,please.thank you:) I found them.and in sale.and very cheap.and at Top Shop. Yesterday I wore them with the biggest love in my heart but they hurt so much when you wear them without socks.Love is something like that,huh? You start to fall for him..and you love him...and then it hurts so bad...you're heartbroken...and he hurts your feelings.My new Flat Brogues are like that.My love turned into pain all day.But next time I won't wear them without thin socks.I promise.

White Denim --- trend alert

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


white denim is so "in" this summer.Its not so common and very frequent here in istanbul (I mean I don't see many people wearing white denim in the streets of İstanbul).If you are searching for how to wear it examples I found out that Kate Moss and Kate Bosworth are fans and trendsetters of this newcomer trend).I also found a picture of Turkish vintage boutique owner Ahu Yağtu's picture in white denim.Its summer and I'm not a big fan of wearing thight jeans in HOT Istanbul weather so I skip.But if you are into white denim give it a try...
