Green wool is always a nice idea

I must confess that I had this post and pictures under kidnapping since a while ago. We took them at the end of January, but I had the craziest February related to University, a similar beginning of March in which it snowed in Firenze and in which I went home to Valencia for a week to see family, friends and fallas in addition of having some pending posts and publications from sponsors which couldn't wait any longer, and which I had to prioritise over this and other looks which I'll be showing you very soon.

However, it's still a bit cold (at least in Northern Italy) so I think I'm still in time to show you this outfit with a 70's vintage green wool mini-dress, which I bought in my visit to "Vintage Selection" fair which took place in Stazione Leopolda at the end of January, and which I personally thought was AH-MAZING. Imagine two whole industrial warehouses with high ceilings covered with iron trusses filled with hundreds of stands, cupboards and racks with a selection of jackets, trousers, accessories, and all vintage and antique clothing pieces you can imagine from statement brands as Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Dior and some other international and national Italian brands with marvelous designs. I think I approximately spent there half a day and went back home very happy with my old-new acquisitions, among which there was this fun and bright dress! I thought it was a nice idea to add to my closet.

It really caught my attention since I saw it in the distance because, besides being in a very good vintage condition (it had some little white glue stains on one side, but nothing that a visit to the dry cleaner's couldn't fix) it looked like that average clothing piece that you can wear in a thousand different ways, both in Winter or when it starts being a bit warmer, and it was also suitable for both the months I'll remain here in Italy and for my Spanish comeback. I wore it with this DIY Gucci inspiration brooch, which is super easy to make just using a piece of wide satin ribbon in your favorite color and any old brooch around home (maybe tutorial about it coming very soon!).

Of course, I'm also wearing my rain ankle booties, which have already turned my go-to shoes and an indispensable piece in my day to day wear in Brunelleschi's city, the one with the huge and beautiful cupola, the breathtaking marble churches' façades and 360 days a year of rain (sometimes I doubt London is known as one of the rainiest cities in Europe. Don't be fooled: it's Firenze. Trust me).

  1. Acabo de morir (y resucitar para escribir este comentario) cuando vi el vestido y me imaginé el sitio donde lo compraste ! (BTW ahora te sigo en IG). Creo que sería el equivalente de un niño que visita Disney.
    Y el broche DIY Gucci, vas a tener que hacer un tutorial porque te juro que lo he intentado y el lazo siempre queda medio tuerto.
