Frock On A Friday -- 26 Aug 2011

I'm going to confess right now. This is not what I wore today. Today I wore a very boring plain black dress (well at least it was McQueen!) When I went to take a photo for today's "Frock On A Friday" I felt so blah, and decided to change. I re-coloured my hair the other night to get it brighter, and wanted something that went with my hair (silly as that sounds!) So I dug in the closet and the first thing that grabbed my eye was my vintage Pucci dress. Along with my pink YSL Tributes, I felt much better about today's photo! At least I'm confessing up front rather than let you think I bustled around doing housework in Pucci and stilettos all day! (Hey, it does happen, when I wear my EPFR nightgowns!)




This is one of the few Pucci pieces I kept when I had the flea market biz and shop. I used to find Pucci everywhere, and so cheaply that the thought never occurred to me that one day the supply would dry up or that prices would get even more insane than they were then. Back about 20 years ago vintage Pucci was very hot in NY, and I would put insane prices on things figuring if I got the price without haggling I'd be happy. No one ever haggled -- even dealers or designers -- so I guess even though I thought the prices were insane I guess they were still considered reasonable! Oh well, I made money, and made room for more treasures to come into my life so no regrets! As much as I love this dress, I've only worn it a few times as it seems every time I plan to wear it, it just seems so over the top. I think I'll have to rectify that ASAP!

  1. I don't think the dress is over the top at all! I think it's very wearable for a Pucci! Glad you still have it.

  2. I think the problem is that it's usually too over the top for where I'm planning to wear it. Although that never stopped me before! Thanks, I'm so glad I still have it too, I love the pattern and colours -- it's a very happy dress!

  4. I adore that dress, Suzanne. It fits like a dream and anything that looks that good could never be considered over the top. x

  9. I'm obviously biased, but you look both hot and sophisticated at the same time.
