LADYBUG VINTAGE, LLC is a finely edited collection of vintage jewelry and clothing.

Launched in 2009 by Chicagoan, Stuart Mesires, the unique and eclectic collection blends her lifelong passion for vintage treasure hunting with her expertise in the worlds of fashion and design. Focused primarily on the international glamour and country club chic eras of the 60’s and 70’s — whimsy, refinement and insouciance are the hallmarks of the Ladybug Vintage collection.

Growing up in Main Line, Philadelphia, Mesires' aesthetic has always been classic with a twist. Bold prints and statement jewelry have informed both her personal style and the Ladybug Vintage collection. Inspiration comes from icons like Grace Kelly, Lee Radziwill, and Fleur Cowles – women with an innate sense of glamour and daring who could take one special piece – a scarf, a lariat, a gorgeous set of cuff bracelets – and create a completely effortless and individual look.

Mesires' mission is to present vintage as something rare and special but accessible. Wearing vintage enables a woman to express a bit of her own creativity. Ladybug’s clientele are encouraged to make their own rules and to do so with confidence
and flair.
