When I look at these pictures it appears so clear to me that they are taken in Milan: the beautiful buildings of the city center (near the Statale University) are so Milanese that the photographs couldn’t be taken anywhere else!
These were my goodbye pictures to Milan, before leaving it for my summer holidays. For this reason I wanted a special outfit, all beautifully handmade by Madame Ilary, from the lovely Madame tee (with an original design made by Ilaria) to the light denim Marlene trousers, with their retro style made with a vintage denim fabric that we found on Etsy as we wanted this exact denim color that is so hard to find nowadays!
Also the turban is a special piece: made with a fabric that reminds me of Spanish islands and Aztec prints at the same time and with an original vintage embroidery to add “time” to the turban, I couldn’t love it more!
I added two special pieces to the outfit: first of all a pair of thrifted orange Ash patent sandals that were offered to me by the lovely A bag of chips, a lovely Ebay store with incredible thrifted and vintage shoes at very affordable prices often in mint conditions. I loved these shoes and even if I was a bit skeptical concerning the color, I realized that they went with almost everything! They are also super comfortable and I wore them almost all summer!
Second piece, one of my favorite statement earrings ever: a pair of brass hoops handmade from Metalica Creazioni especially made for me! Aren’t they beautiful?
This is another example of completely sustainable outfit: 90% handmade with love in Italy (and yes, I know who made my clothes and jewels, Ilaria and Francesca, two amazing friends and crafters!), 10% thrifted, meaning recycled/reused instead of thrown away! If you try going sustainable with your clothes and with what you wear, you will probably get this feeling of peace and uniqueness: not only you help the planet by recycling clothes, you can also say that no human being was exploited to make your clothes. And your style is absolutely unique, 100% you!
