The Ladybug and a vintage outfit for a very busy day at work

The Ladybug Chronicles Vintage Office (1)

I’ve written a lot of times about my idea of vintage at work or at least how I wear vintage when I go to work. I cannot wear exactly what I want (for example I cannot hang around in turbans!) but I have the chance to work in a place where you can be yourself, without going too far of course!

That’s why I often wear vintage clothes at work, especially lovely dresses or jewelry that I collected from almost all over the world!

That particularly day when I woke up I realized that my agenda was full of meetings…a well charged day needs a vintage outfit!

I decided to wear one of my favorite 70s vintage dresses that I bought in Brussels a few years ago in a lovely shop called Episode Vintage near the Grande Place. I wore it with a vintage 90s black short blazer (from my own personal collection of when I was a kid!) and a pair of black killer heels from 8 that I bought on Yoox.

I added two beautiful jewelry pieces: a peacock vintage brooch that I bought at A Rebours Vintage in Milan and a retro inspired ring with two small cameos from Alcozer & J, definitely one of my favorite rings ever.

The Ladybug’s Thursday Riot at Bloody Edith Atelier

The Ladybug Chronicles Deja Vue Vintagepedia (8)

One of my favorite spots for retro inspired clothing and accessories in Milan is the lovely Atelier in via Col di Lana 8 (in a beautiful Milanese court) called Bloody Edith. There are many reasons why I love this place:

  1. The owner and founder of Bloody Edith is one of the most adorable vintage ladies I have ever met;
  2. The retro striped tops and other handmade 50’s inspired pieces are to die-for;
  3. The shop itself looks like a retro paradise with vintage and feminine pieces everywhere;
  4. The atmosphere: more than a shop I would say a vintage boudoir;
  5. The Thursday Riot: about every month this boutique turns into a vintage party venue, with drinks and snacks but, more important, with a “vintage” guest for customers’ pleasure!

The last Thursday Riot event hosted the lovely Valentina from Déjà Vu Vintagepedia, one of my favorite vintage jewelry seller, with the best vintage European and American pieces and amazing bakelite jewels.

It was great to spend time with the girls (and Madame Ilary who celebrated her birthday there!) and to meet new “vintage ladies” who tried with us almost all the amazing vintage necklaces and earrings from Déjà Vu! Even if I was distracted by vintage jewelry I couldn’t help falling in love with the new trousers and shorts (in perfect 50’s style) from the winter collection, and to keep my love alive for the striped sweaters (I was thinking of starting to collect them!).

I tried to take some pictures of the event so that you can understand what I mean…and visit this adorable boutique as soon as you can if you haven’t done it yet!

As for me, I can’t wait for the next Thursday Riot at Bloody Edith (and to get my next striped top!)

I wore Sportmax coat, vintage French beret with vintage hatpin from Tricia Leonard in Munich, Muji preppy scarf.
