The Ladybug’s three outfits challenge with Zaful

Do you remember when I offered you a discount code for Zaful site last November?

Well, I used the discount code too and I found it quite hard to pick up only a few items on their site! I got lost in teddy coats, bomber jackets, lovely skirts and sweaters, tons of retro inspired accessories that I needed days to decide what to buy from them! To make my final decision I followed one criteria: what do I need? Or, better said, what do I want to buy? I knew I wanted a dungaree and a leopard print skirt so I went straight for them. The crazy thing is that there are so many adorable things on their site that I ended up buying two dungarees, the exact animal print skirt that I was dreaming of and a lovely silky scarf with the loveliest print!

(By the way, at the end of this post there is another surprise for you! )

I decided to create three different outfits with these pieces, let me know which one you prefer and what is your favorite piece!

1.       The romantic pinky outfit

I must confess that I have a passion for dungarees but also that I always feel a bit ashamed when I wear one: am I too old for a dungaree? When I got this black dungaree from Zaful I really didn’t know how to wear it and make it look “for not very young anymore” girls! While thinking on how to do that, I decided that I wouldn’t care less; even worse that I would have worn with pinky colors and make it very young because I am not 20 anymore but hey! I am not 80 anyway!! So I matched with a vintage pussybow dotted shirt from Aramayo Vintage in Madrid and with an adorable silky scarf with printed pink flamingos from Zaful again. I am totally in love with the scarf and I am often wearing it on my head as well as on my neck.

2.       The leopard lady outfit

When I saw this animal print silky skirt I knew that it was going to be mine: it has the exact print that I have been looking for for ages and it is so soft that you can easily wear it bare legs in summer or with tights  in winter like I am doing here. It is elasticated at waist which makes it pretty adaptable to different sizes and it is a bit longer on the back which makes me love it even more! I used it at work with a total black outfit (Zara sweater, Francesco Milano ankle boots and statement earrings from Gogo Philip).

3.       The grown-up dungaree outfit

For my second dungaree I decided to play it safe. This is a military green corduroy piece from Zaful again, that I changed a little bit because I removed the buttons to make knots on the top! It is soft and very easy to use, especially when you decide that this time you would make it look more “grown-up”! In fact I wore it with a silk & Other Stories shirt, a Mango black blazer and Ouigal laced ankle boots. Too serious? I added big Gogo Philip hoops (the same of the pinky outfit!) and a fun Basquiat pin from Ex Child Genius!

The Ladybug’s “rainy days wishlist” on Zaful (and a coupon code for you!)


Rainy days are made for online shopping and new wishlists!

It has been raining for ages here in Milan so I am spending my Sunday afternoon at home buying online and preparing my Christmas wishlists. My biggest wishlist of the day comes from Zaful, one of my favorite online store when it comes to find super cute pieces at incredible prices.

When I create my wishlists online I start from what I would like to buy and what are the trends that I want to endorse without spending a fortune. My key words of next winter are: RAINBOW (no surprise as it doesn’t stop raining!!), TEDDY COATS (vegetarian approach to the use of trendy real furs!) and BOMBER JACKETS (my new favorite jackets after my trip to Japan!).

RAINBOW trend is so on right now: a bit of vintage vibe, gay pride slogan, need of colors during the rainy days, I don’t know what it is but I am dying for this colored striped sweaters that I am seeing everywhere (in Milan there is also a subway stop all painted with multicolored stripes!). Here is my selection of the loveliest rainbow sweaters on Zaful!



Last year I missed one of my favorite trends of the year but I am happy to see it still going strong this winter: the TEDDY COAT! I don’t like to wear furs but I love this ecologic option, that it is also much more flattering especially if you have a curvy body! On Zaful I found so many styles and colors that I can’t decide which one I want…what do you think? What is your favorite?


Since I am back from Japan I am a huge fan of Bomber Jackets: I bought two Japanese pieces there and I wear them all the time! They have a vintage vibe that I love and they go with almost everything, casual style and dressed up. I love them in different lengths, colors and styles and I have a crush on the embroidered ones or the Japanese inspired ones. I picked up a few from Zaful…here again I need your help to decide which one should I take!

 The good news is that I have a coupon code for all my lovely readers for a 15% off at the checkout: ZVYABFS. Plus, from today 11th of November until the 13th of November, shipping costs worldwide are offered by Zaful and, last but not least ,for the next two days you can find Sales Down to $3.99 HERE!
