The Ladybug is a Vintage Reader at the Salone del Libro Usato in Milan

The Ladybug Chronicles-5044

Living in Milan, one of the events that I really cannot miss is the Used/Vintage Book Expo. I enjoyed it so much last year (I still remember that day was the first snow of the season!) that I couldn’t wait for this year’s event which would happen during the last weekend of November.

This year things were a little bit different: first, the location (one of side pavilions of the Milanocity Fiera) was not as beautiful as it was last year.  I also noticed there were few more antique book collectors compared to the year before.

I love those big volumes full of dust- that smell, the history…, but I prefer less vintage finds in this instance… like comics or just used books at ridiculous prices!

My friend Silvia was visiting during that weekend and we took some time to play at the little playground near the Fair… I wore a Twenty8Twelve taupe military jacket with an H&M black sweater and leather midi skirt. I added black man brogues from Marco and my small Balenciaga handbag.

This year I found some old Valentina comics (I was so happy because after her expo last summer, I wanted to read so much more about her!) and three used books for 2 euros each: my beloved American writer, James Baldwin; one of my favorite French writers, Jean-Claude Izzo, and my favorite book from University, Maruja Torres’ Amor America.The Ladybug Chronicles-5062
