The Ladybug Hears the Call in the Distance, “The Red Hat Is Coming, The Red Hat Is Coming!”

Last week we talked about my visit to VintageMania in Bassano del Grappa and today I want to share with you my funny outfit for the occasion!

The key piece of the ensemble is the lovely dark red 1940s hat that I bought in London at Retromania during my last visit there: I was ravished by the unusual shape and the price was really interesting (only 10 pounds!), so I decided to let this “red coat” invade my hat box.

I must say: it is not very easy to wear because it commands the spotlight; for this reason I need to pay attention to the rest of the outfit and try not to overstate the piece!

Indeed I paired it with a simple cotton black sweater from Mango and a long black chiffon skirt from American Apparel. You can see my DIY white silk peter pan collar and my red studded ankle boots.

I then added my black small Balenciaga bag and a small silver and red ring that I bought last summer in Corsica… what do you think?

Pictures are taken outside the Villa Giusti in the nice garden around the villa.
