Pearls and flowers


One of the best things of being a freelance artist is that you can organize your time the way you wish. Even better when your boyfriend does exactly the same job, so you can enjoy your work break together under the sun! 
With such a beautiful day outside I could not resist the pastels call, but instead of picking the fluo shades that I'm seeing everywhere lately (the curse of color block has not ended yet...) I chose to wear a more delicate mint tone, pairing it with dark floral tights.

Una delle cose piu' belle nell'essere un'artista freelance e' di potersi gestire gli orari e il ritmo della giornata come meglio si desidera. Meglio ancora quando il tuo fidanzato fa il tuo stesso lavoro e puo' farti compagnia :) E infatti eccomi in pausa pranzo, dopo una piadina buonissima, a godermi questa splendida giornata di primavera, seduta beata su una panchina sotto il sole! 
Non ho resistito al richiamo dei colori pastello ma, invece di scegliere tonalita' tendenti al fluo come vedo troppo spesso in giro (la maledizione del color block non da' alcun segno di tregua...) ho deciso di indossare un semplice color menta, e abbinarlo a dei collant scuri con tanti fiorellini. 



The peter pan collar dress is a gift from Jaclyn of Audrey Grace, with whom I worked last year creating a series of illustrations for her shop in Mississipi (I posted about it here). It is handmade by Katie-Louise Ford, a sweet australian lady who looks like a 20s movie star and has got one of the prettiest boutiques on Etsy. I'm a huge fan of her work, in fact I have already booked my next purchase ;)
The tights are from Pamela Mann and I have mentioned them last year in a "floral-overload" post!
The red bag is vintage, it's got a hundred compartments inside and the color is plain gorgeousness!

L'abitino e' un regalo di Jaclyn, di Audrey Grace, con la quale ho lavorato l'anno scorso creando delle illustrazioni per il suo negozio nel Mississipi (ve ne avevo parlato qui). E' confezionato a mano da Katie-Louise Ford, una ragazza australiana dolcissima di cui sono una grande fan, che somiglia a un'attrice degli anni '20 e ha una boutique Etsy piena di cose veramente incantevoli, infatti ho gia' prenotato il mio prossimo vestito ;)
Le calze sono di Pamela Mann e ve ne avevo parlato l'anno scorso in un post molto "floreale"...
La borsetta invece e' vintage, dentro ha un'infinita' di scomparti ed ha un colore stu-pen-do!

Il verde menta è il colore che mi ispira di più per questa primavera, insieme al giallo pallido. Insomma, nei prossimi mesi aspiro a vestirmi come un cono gelato XD

Solange Garnier said...

You can style basically every piece of garment and make it adorable! Love this outfit! It's so unfair because I see so many gorgeous pieces apparently coming out of this wonderful shop called Audrey Grace (the clothing equivalent of Willy Wonka's factory, apparently) and cannot seem to find an online boutique version. How do we get our european hands on those 'licious garments?

Rosaspina Vintage said...

@Solange Garnier - I know I'd love to see an online version of the shop too! (but honestly, that would become very dangerous for me, haha)
I actually think Jaclyn has been selling remotely too, if you have a look at her pics on facebook (here: http://on.fb.me/wFvY2B) and just drop her an email (jbethany@fordham.edu) I'm sure she would be happy to help. Fingers crossed for an online boutique! x

Solange Garnier said...

Thanks for the info :) you're a dear!

johanna said...

just visited your blog for the first time, and i LOVE IT! do you have a bloglovin-account, so it would be easier to follow your blog?
(sorry for my bad english, im norvegian)

Abby Mifsud said...

You look so lovely from head to toe <3

Rosaspina Vintage said...

@June - grazie :) Buona primavera a te!

@Amber - thank you! bless peter pan collars ;)

@Cat - thanks sweetie! Oh, this week is actually the most stressful one, but at least try to get a bit of sunshine every day :)

@Elle - hehe, infatti non e' detto che io sia così diligente da riuscire a non perdere tempo ;) A volte sono un disastro, la casa e' un luogo troppo pieno di distrazioni... ma alla fine lo preferisco mille volte in piu' rispetto a lavorare in uno studio con tante persone stressate o rumorose :)

@Johanna - sure, you can find a Bloglovin' subscribing button on the sidebar!

@Abby - thank you! x

No, seriously.. (yes, me again!) you've such an amazing collection of vintage bags! You should make one of those "what's in my bag" posts, I'd love to see what you've been carrying with you :)
