The Ladybug Wakes Up In Her Recurring Dream: A Modern Day Princess Leia

The Ladybug Chronicles-2247

One of the most fun things that I did with KNAGUI while he was in Milan was our visit to the Star Wars expo at the Museo del Manifesto Cinematografico. It was a really interesting visit to the Museum and of the expo itself, but I will let KNAGUI (as he is the REAL Star Wars fan!) tell you about the expo in one of his upcoming SSwK.  In the meantime, I’d like to share my outfit for our “Night at the Museum.” (pun intended).

As it was a beautiful and unseasonably warm day in Milan I wore my navy Max & Co coat-cape and I paired it with a thrifted Primark jacket (a charity shop bargain from London last year!), a vintage navy and white polka-dot shirt from A.N.G.E.L.O. (that I bought at their temporary store in Serravalle’s Outlet during the Vintage Fashion Festival last year) and a pair of Replay jeans.

I am also wearing a navy hat by Whistles and Isabel Marant Dickers booties in tan and two more vintage pieces: suede gloves with warm faux shearling inside and a beautiful navy handbag from Un’altro giro di giostra, a beautiful vintage shop that I spotted in Reggio Emilia last year.

The Ladybug Stays Warm While Shopping the Christmas Markets #1

The Ladybug Chronicles-5109

Moving from one Christmas market to another in Milan’s freezing temperature is a serious job and needs a serious outfit!

For my visit to the Lekker Market, I decided to stay warm and cozy yet comfortable in this lovely outfit. What I loved most is the mixing of colors: I wore a dark yellow sweater from Marella and a military green pocket trouser from J Brand.

I added a dark green military coat from H&M and a pair of Zara laced brown boots.

As for the vintage touch: I took this late ’70s long beige handmade wool scarf from my mom’s closet and this beautiful uber comfortable tan handbag from my friend Sculptures to Wear (this was my find during the last edition of the Vintage Workshop in Milan).
