This week in Italy begins our country wide “Summer vacation.” Nobody’s around; everyone (or quite everyone!) is on holiday, so I decided to join them… at least in my mind and through my wardrobe with this lovely red floral dress that I bought in a vintage shop in Milan this past June.
I was walking down Corso di Porta Ticinese when I spotted this lovely vintage shop: a small cave of vintage treasuries! Backstage Vintage is really one of the places to visit in Milan to find incredible pieces at affordable prices. I got a couple of things there and every piece was absolutely stunning!
This dress has an amazing floral pattern and a lovely shape (especially the squared neck and straps) even if I decided to add a white vintage belt (actually a piece of another vintage dress!!) to accentuate the waist.
I added 2 pink touches: a pink bangle with balls (!) and pink shoes from a thrifting expedition at the Salvation Army in New York (more will be said about that afternoon in Disneyland soon!).
Happy summer to everybody!

Cute vintage dress- it reminds me of an oilcloth pattern 🙂 And how fun that you’re in Italy! Lucky girl! Do they have many vintage shops there? Do they sell vintage stuff at high prices?
Lovely isn’t it? Not many vintage shops in Italy but some in Florence or Milan are really good! I’m always looking for new ones!
Prices may vary a lot, of course, but what I really miss here are thrift stores…I love them!!
