The Ladybug and a secret passion for vintage overalls

The Ladybug Chronicles Vintage Workwear (2)

When I announced that I wanted to buy a vintage blue overall, you know this type of men workwear that is used by people working in the garages (mostly mechanics) my friends stared at me as if I was announcing that I was pregnant! “What the hell are you going to do with that?” – they asked.

Well, just wear them; my style of course!

I was tempted to buy one in Japan where they are very trendy not only in the vintage shops but also new and in lovely colors (like baby blue or pink) but I was at the end of my trip and I already had two full suitcases to bring home, so I decided to wait a bit until I found my vintage perfect overall.

This happened not longtime ago on Depop where I found out that Tiziana, the owner of the beautiful shop Vintage Afro Picks has the same passion for overalls. She had a few in her shop (including a couple of new ones that she brought from Japan!) and my perfect one was just there, waiting for me: dark blue, with a long front zip, oversize and…discounted!!  I was a bit worried about the size because even if I got the measurements I wasn’t sure how it would fit but when I received it I was super happy because it was just perfect!!

Here I am wearing it with a vintage inspired Mango denim jacket, handmade denim-like headband from Madame Ilary, vintage 70s bag from Lady Fusetti and baby blue New Balance sneakers.

Silver earrings are vintage from my grandma, silver rings are vintage Berber pieces that I found in Marrakech during my last trip.

What do you think of my vintage blue overall style? Yay or nay?
