The Ladybug stays warm and cozy

The Ladybug Chronicles Warm and Cozy (2)

As the temperatures get lower it is time to stay warm and cozy in our favorite winter pieces.

Soft and warm scarves and sweaters are on top of my list especially since I live in Milan! I can get out without gloves or hats in winter but I cannot make it without a scarf!

The checked one I am wearing here is from Momonì and it is possibly one of my favorite winter scarves as it is incredibly warm and soft. I wore it on a navy jumper from & Other Stories and denim culottes from Massimo Dutti.

Camel ankle boots are from Carmens and handmade brass earrings are from Metalica Creazioni.

The Ladybug and the story of a vintage Nina Ricci shirt

One of my favorite recycling rules is re-selling what I don’t use anymore: it is a great idea to make room for new pieces in your wardrobe and to put together some money for travels or new fashion and vintage addictions!

I have always used Ebay as a platform to sell my wardrobe but in the last few months I got addicted to more mobile apps for my fashion recycling: Vintag,  (that I have already introduced you to some time ago and where I set-up my personal vintage shop,!) and Depop where I started selling and buying quite a lot lately.

My first buy ever on Depop was this amazing vintage 70s Nina Ricci shirt from the wonderful seller Erre Moscia Blog: I totally fell in love with this vintage piece but as it was my first time on Depop I was a bit afraid. The transaction was super smooth and when I received the shirt I was fainting for how great it looked for real!

I took these pictures the first time that I wore it, with a velvet Massimo Dutti blazer and flare jeans to complete the 70s look even if the earrings, bought during an Antiques fair in Sorrento many years ago, are from the 80s.

The Ladybug adds some (a lot of!) red for a 50s inspired outfit

Milan, Deejay Ten 10K run, October 2017.

Almost one hour of running and one of eating, chatting and stretching in Parco Sempione with fellow runners, then a quick shower and voilà: here I am in a 50s inspired style ready for a late lunch with my friends (those who run with me plus a few lazy ones!!) at the lovely Nepalese restaurant Ashar in Milan.

I wore my new Massimo Dutti dark denim culottes bought exactly the day before, during our shopping session (the Deejay Ten weekend is always a food + shopping one!) with my new & Other Stories striped top (bought during the same shopping session!!).

I added some touch of red like my not new but still loved African wax bomber jacket from Protect Talibés on Etsy, a thrifted Balenciaga bag and a red Sephora lipstick.

Clogs are from Casta & Dolly at Archivio Vintage in Milan.
