Thrifted Gucci Style Outfit
The only fashion label that inspires me is Gucci. Nothing else even comes close.
In 2015 when Alessandro Michele became the creative director for the brand he set the fashion world on fire. Now every brand is grabbing onto some of that Gucci goodness and trying to market it for themselves.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to know that most of Alessandro’s inspiration comes from his own personal enormous collection of vintage pieces.
Vintage is where it’s at!
I had high hopes of wearing this outfit below to the swishy media launch party of a friend but the weather isn’t playing along.
It is expected to be around 40 C with the humidex.
I’d be melting in this. : (
The 1940s vintage jacket was thrifted recently with Mel.
I was so delighted when it fit me as you can tell by my sassy stance in the fitting room when she snapped my photo.
I know I’m supposed to be buying for my store and not my personal collection but this piece was too fabulous to let it slip through my hands.
It has different coloured fabric covered buttons all the way down.
The structure, detailing and fit on the this jacket are so brilliantly executed. That’s why I fall for vintage every time, they don’t make them like this anymore!
I think I’ve captured that “throw it all together” eclectic look that I so love about Gucci.
I’m not too terribly bothered I won’t be able to wear this to the party.
I don’t need a special occasion to wear this. You may see me out thrifting in this ensemble as soon as the temperatures cool down.
It is as comfy as it is chic.
So…back to the launch party.
I’ve got the pre-party bag packed.
Did you ever do that when you were younger? Buy liquor and drink before you went out so you didn’t need to spend big bucks at the bar? I won’t be partaking in the alcohol party favours I’m bringing but that doesn’t mean my friends won’t. Just a nice glass to toast the evening before we head out. I think it’s going to be an epic night.
Do people still say epic?
Ha! Who cares?
Now what am I going to wear to the party?
You’ll have to come back to see : )
You may want to check out my Instagram feed. I might wind up posting some real time photos of party or the pre party celebrations.
