In my last post I told you about my great vintage shopping session at the Pop Up Vintage Fair during my last weekend in London. One of the amazing gems that I found there was this wonderful vintage 60s red cape with silver double breasted buttons from Tilly’s Vintage, in wonderful conditions!
I have always wanted a 60s vintage cape and when I saw this one I just couldn’t resist: it was my very last purchase before running to the airport but it was too nice to leave it there!
It is hard to wear a cape in winter because it is too cold in Milan but autumn was perfect for this lovely piece that I wore for a Saturday afternoon birthday tea and cake at the delicious Pavé in Milan.
I paired my beautiful cape with Cos black culottes and retro inspired L’Arianna black shoes plus some other vintage and handmade pieces: a vintage hooked handbag from Vintage Studium on Depop, a beautiful blackamoor vintage brooch from Déja-vu Vintage and a handmade animal print turban from Madame Ilary.
I really love the elegance and this “diva feel” that you have when you wear such amazing vintage pieces: people look at you in the streets and they keep telling you how elegant you are, the elegance of another era they say. One of my favorite feelings!
