      Yes! Thats what I loved the most.!
      The dress is very cute and the bag and belt match perfectly but I love the little ankle socks she has added.
      They are perfect!

    I may to see this one in person …. in a photo, it looks a bit like a dress made of tea towels. I love the brown bag and belt …. the ankle socks, no. I saw these on women of all ages in Tokyo …. but here, it looks a bit odd. Just the flats would have been perfect!

    love her sweet socks and flats! xo, ALma

    Simple, easy wearable dress with belt ang bag. The socks are “cute” but I would prefer the (Chanel ??) flats sans socks.

    Interesting outfit, but for me the shoes and socks don’t go so well with the rest.

    Good for her. Can you even imagine the wonderful vintage stuff that you can probably find in Milan!?

    So true… vintage is so rarely seen in Italy… When I lived there as a student in the early 90′s there was a tiny Rockabilly scene. It was so strange because we were all caught up in grunge which felt like the antithesis… But every time I go back there is little individual style and a good amount of designer head to toe. Don’t get me wrong – I love the way the Italians wear their clothes, but even in the tiniest hill town you will see the same thing on the streets of Firenze!

      I think about this quite often, as my boyfriend lives in Florence and so I’m in Italy quite a bit. I’ve worn vintage all of my life to varying degrees. I am always inspired when I am in Italy – by the tailoring and the way that Italians understand fit – but my boyfriend (I don’t know if he is unique) turns up his nose when I talk about vintage. To him it’s weird to wear clothes that other people have worn, apart from family (he still wears classic cashmere sweaters, jackets and shoes that belonged to his father, who was born in 1921, and he’s handsome in them!). I’ve noticed a few vintage shops such as one would see in the US cropping up in Florence over the last few years, but on the whole I don’t see much of that on the street (apart from on the young students visiting other parts o the world). I’d love to hear the perspective of an Italian (other than my boyfriend, of course! :))

    perfect look!
    LOVE IT!!

    too literal. reto worn so close to exactly as it was first sold just looks like costume. it’s cute but i hope for a much fresher take.
