Gucci Retro-spective

Sometimes I pick things from my closet that are so ladylike and proper. I know, it’s weird. For me, at least.  (It did happen here, too…)

But gosh, this Gucci dress just spoke to me when I saw it… I snatched it off the rack and it fit like a glove, so it must have been meant to be, right? Well, it also could have been because it was 75% off, who knows. But the color was so rich and vibrant, and while it’s clearly got the secretary vibe, it also felt like it could go a little rock ‘n roll, like how Rachael Zoe might style it, with a floppy hat and OTK suede boots. (*must try this…*)

And here’s how Gucci styled it on their runway: all out GLAM!

So let’s go for ladylike polish first. How about a glossy raspberry lipstick. A classic Yves Saint Laurent ‘Muse’ bag. And a side-swept ‘do. Finish with some obsession-worthy heels from J.Crew, no less.  Hope you like!

Remember, bright color is your friend, it’s like getting a facial without spending the money 🙂
