The Ladybug vintage makeover by Alessia Bee at Sofia Vintage in Como

I guess you understood how in love I am with Roberta Ciceri’s vintage shop in Como, Sofia Vintage.

I adore spending time in this beautiful shop and I couldn’t miss another occasion to head in and see what was new but even more to get a personalized vintage makeover with one of my favorite personal stylist and make-up artist, Alessia Bee.

A few weeks ago indeed Roberta organized a great event in her shop by inviting Alessia Bee who was there to create a vintage style with hair and make-up for all the lovely customers and some (lucky) bloggers! Even Roberta hosted the event with her hair style with lovely victory rolls!

Let me tell you that I’ve been looking for a vintage makeover from Alessia Bee since I first knew about her: I never met her before the event but I was amazed by her personal style and her great work that I saw in pictures in many different vintage events. And I was surprised that, although I was expecting a lot from the event, not only I wasn’t disappointed but I was uber happy about the final result! I really loved what she did on my hair and with my make-up and I came back home with a bunch of great tips that I now use for my daily make-up. Indeed I finally found my perfect shade for my eyes (I started again using eye-shadow every day since then!), I learned some great tips to use eyeliner and I was totally amazed by the use of a natural pencil for the lower line of the eye instead of a dark one to create a bigger eye vibe; moreover I learned how to style my hair very easily for a simple yet impressive vintage look when I have not much time to get a complicated hairstyling and which product I could use to give more volume to my curly hair! Still I looked very natural and I adopted her “Less is more” motto to create my new daily routine styling!

You can find some pictures of Alessia Bee styling me and the final results where I added a beautiful vintage coat from Sofia Vintage over my vintage shirt and skirt (I will tell you more about my outfit soon!).

Of course it wasn’t all about vintage styling: as every time that I am at Sofia Vintage it looked more like being at Roberta’s place with great cakes homemade by Roberta’s mum, healthy drinking and many friends!

I guess I will definitely go back soon for some Christmas threats!
