The Ladybug from the 40s diva to the 50s pin-up

The Ladybug Chronicles Lullaby Dress (1)

Lately I showed you my vintage marine dress bought in Barcelona last spring but, as you may easily imagine, it was not my only vintage find in Barcelona!

When I arrived there, on the first day, I found one of my favorite vintage shops in town called Lullaby: just for you to understand how great this place was, I had to come back a second time to decide what to buy because I loved too many things and I decided that I would better think twice and choose only a few!

When I went back I bought, among other things (a leather 70s bag and a pair of 80s statement earrings!), also this beautiful vintage 50s dress that I loved from the first day: the pattern, the buttons and its pin-up shape!

I paired it with a wonderful pair of blackamoor 40s earrings from Déjà Vu (yes, she is my blackamoor jewelry provider!)…aren’t they adorable?

I also added a pair of military green ankle boots that I got a couple of weeks ago from a shoes sample sale (one of the hardest things to resist!) of the brand Strategia, here in Milan. They are not vintage but I think that they were nice with the outfit and I wanted to avoid the total vintage look!

PS: I know I was on my bad-hair day but I forgot to bring a turban!
