The Ladybug and the story of a floral vintage shirt

There is a place in Milan where I go when I am tired, stressed and anxious: it is called Humana Vintage! I guess that most of you know the Humana shops all over the world and their concept. In Milan there is a beautiful little shop behind the Duomo Cathedral where you can find a lot of amazing vintage pieces at bargain prices, especially during their frequent flash sales and promotions.

I love spending a lot of time there trying to the find my perfect match in a huge amount of vintage clothes and accessories. When I leave (usually with tons of bags!) I feel relaxed, happy, brand new! It is better than a spa and it costs even less!

It is there, during a 50% off sales session, that I found this beautiful pink floral shirt. I loved the print immediately but only when I got home I realized that it was signed by Egon Von Furstenberg, Diane’s husband. I was curious and googled him, this is how I found out that he was a Swiss designer. I am always very happy when I get to know more about the story of the clothes that I wear, and it happens often when I buy from Humana that I pick a designer piece or a piece with  a specific story that I can learn.

I paired my pink shirt with a thrifted H&M navy pleated skirt and with tan pumps but I added another vintage touch: the beautiful 80s golden earrings that I bought in Barcelona in the beautiful Lullaby vintage shop!
