The Ladybug plays modern 40s style

The Ladybug Chronicles modern 40s (1)

As you know I am on my journey to more sustainable way of living, especially when it comes to clothes. My wardrobe is 80% vintage, thrifted and handmade but I still have a 20% of high street clothes that I am going to sell or still use as long as they are in good conditions. But even when I wear my high street clothes I usually do it in a vintage style, mixing them with vintage or vintage inspired pieces that make them look older than they are!

I love playing the 40s with these pieces like I am doing here, mixing a floral silk red shirt from & Other Stories and black culottes from Dixie with handmade and vintage to give it a different twist.

The handmade turban makes it all: created with love by Madame Ilary, this purple pink piece with crystal details is inspired by the turbans of the 40s divas and it is impossible not to look like one of them when I wear it!

The leather doctor bag is a vintage piece from the early 50s: I have been looking for one like it for ages until I found my perfect match during a vintage event in Milan some years ago.

Taupe caged ankle boots are an old pair from Jeffrey Campbell, possibly the shoes I have used the most in my whole life! They are almost destroyed but I am going to wear them as long as they still have life to live!

Handmade brass gingko earrings are from the talented Made in Camper, one of my favorite jewel designers.
