The Ladybug is Gatsby in the Rain: The Ever Illusive Spring of 2013

Maybe it was the rain or the influence that The Great Gatsby had on me, but today, as Spring seems late to blossom, I decided to go to a ’30s/’40s inspired outfit mixing new and vintage pieces.

I started with this lovely blue cape coat from Max&Co that I bought on sale this winter, but it’s perfect for this middle season weather. I paired it with a silk dress from Topshop that I bought in their London boutique on Oxford Street some years ago.

The retro inspired hat is a lovely handmade creation from Pippi the Milliner and it adds the real “Gatsbian” style to the outfit! I am also wearing grey suede Dolce & Gabbana pumps and an original ’40s clutch of the same color.
