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?
