The Ladybug’s vintage outfit for the Naviglio Grande Antiques Market

The Ladybug Chronicles Antiques Market (1)

Every last Sunday of the month, the Navigli area of Milan is full of vintage stalls selling almost everything vintage: homeware, clothing, accessories, collectable etc. It is the biggest Antiques market in town and since I live here I try to go there every now and then (not too much because I would buy too many things!) just to walk, have a look and feel the vintage vibe.

I am sharing the outfit of my last visit two months ago now, where I enjoyed a lovely vintage stroll with Ilaria and bought a couple of things, of course! (A wonderful 40’s vintage brooch from my adored Déjàvu Vintage and a fabulous ethnic golden embroidered tunic that I fell in love with at very first sight!).

Usually I totally play dressed-up to visit the Naviglio Grande Antiques Market but this day I was more “down-to-earth” as I had a couple of things to do after the market. So I put a pair of Vans at my feet but the rest of the outfit is completely vintage: starting from this beautiful 70s ice-white coat that I found at Humana Vintage during my 70s coats hunt last autumn. I don’t usually wear such clear colors but I liked the shape too much and it was just 15 euros so I went for it. The good thing is that it goes almost with everything and it was perfect with my greyish 80s shirt with colored toucans that I found in Budapest in May at Retrock (possibly my favorite vintage shop in town with Jajcica!).

Mum jeans are vintage inspired from Topshop, I found them in Edinburgh when I was searching for the perfect vintage mum jeans but I couldn’t find one that I liked until I saw this one in high street. It is not vintage but I like it a lot and I have been using it so much!

My turban is handmade from Madame Ilary, of course, and it was created with a fabric and an embroidery that I found in Amman, at the textile Souq where they sold the most beautiful Syrian fabrics and Jordan embroidery for ridiculous prices (a real paradise on earth!). I couldn’t resist that much and I bought so many things for me and for Ilaria!

Hoop earrings are from Gogo Philip, canvas tote from Marina Abramovic exhibit in Florence official merchandise (I got two beautiful canvas bags and the poster of the exhibit when we were there in February).
