The Ladybug Hears Arsenale Cry, “Where For Art Thou, Ladybug” as She Plays a Vintage Juliet in Verona!

The Ladybug Chronicles-Verona Arsenale 2014-01A couple of Sundays ago I decided to take advantage of the good weather for a trip with some friends: the excuse was the Arsenale Vintage Market in Verona, but we really wanted to have a good meal (and wine… as it was the same days of Vinitaly) and have a nice stroll to see Verona’s most interesting places since we’ve never visited it properly (though I know Arsenale very well!)

Let me say that we had the meal and wine that we expected (which may explain my sleepy face in the pics!). Verona as well, did not disappoint: from the riverside to the internationally known Piazza delle Erbe, to Juliet’s house and famous balcony (yes, that balcony!) we spent most of the day walking and visiting as proper tourists!

I wore an amazing vintage ’80s dress that I bought long time ago in a lovely vintage shop in Ljubljana (Moje Tvoje), my H&M biker jacket, and Strategia studded boots (I told you some time ago how I got them in a temporary shop for a quarter of the price!). I added my lovely handmade crown of flowers (perfect to play my Juliet!) from Giocanda (remember? I got it at Fa’ la Cosa Giusta!) and my folk Russian bag from Off in Saint Petersburg.

It wasn’t until 7pm that I remembered the real reason for being in Verona: the Arsenale Vintage Market! You might remember my last visit there for the Blogger Tour last October; that time I was alone, but it was fun as usual meeting old friends and to make new one alike! One of the things that I like most about Arsenale is that there is not only vintage: in fact, if the first room is mostly dedicated to vintage sellers (Dorotea Vintage, Stondo, Magnifica Preda, Bloody Edith and many others, mostly the same that were there last year), the second room is a tribute to creativity and handmade and I know now that I never leave there without something in my bag!!

This year I bought a straw hat from Stondo (yes, I can’t resist their hats!)

…and another straw hat from Post Post (very Venice gondolier style!)

My girl crush of this season was Olivia Iron… a rare vintage beauty with a rare talent for making beautiful retro hats and fascinators. It took me a while to decide which one to get from her, but in the end- I went for this lovely black one with vintage pearl button.
