Crushing Hard: Pucci Prints

Ever since my time at Betsey Johnson, I have been dreaming of the day when an original Emilio Pucci print was mine.  Betsey did a collection of Pucci-inspired clothing when I worked in her New York boutique.  I loved the hip, bohemian feel of the mini-skirts, dresses, cat suits and cigarette pants.  It was so cool man, but it just wasn't the real deal.

So you could imagine my surprise when I set out for my annual Christmas shopping at the outlets with one of my best gal pals Lynngweeny.  After a long day of successful shopping, we found ourselves at Saks Fifth Avenue Off Fifth in the 11th hour of our pilgrimage.  I hit the jackpot big there, but my biggest score was an original Emilio Pucci print scarf.  Conveniently, I bought one as a gift and one for myself.

The colors of one scarf in particular were maroon, pink, black and gold which only lent oodles of compliment to the mod print.  It was just out of this world; It had to be mine.  And, without too much contemplation, it was.

Merry Christmas to me!

  1. Love it and the best part that followed....a play by play analysis of the purchase from first discovering the table that held an assortment of said scarves to the final sale (which employed a variety of coupons and financial maneuvering) as we basked in a joint "shoppers high" while enjoying a quick and much deserved snack before heading home. Honestly,
    I see no difference between my husband and his buddies rehashing their golf game and settling bets over beers and my gal pals and me rehashing our shopping triumphs and bargains over a quick taco and ice tea. Girl fun at it's finest!!!
