Gucci what??

Thursday, July 30, 2009
That's right!!! Yours truly scored a vintage Gucci bag. I actually got it at a garage sale for $3! My first real high-end designer item. Most likely my last. Okay, so I didn't really wear this outfit today. I actually wore my Ann Taylor dresswhite belt, and black flats. Not very interesting but I changed into this because the husband liked this outfit, which is weird because he doesn't care a bit about fashion. So I played dress up while we ran some errands.

Wearing secondhand Express tee ($4), DownEast Basics tee (gift from my MIL), J Brand jeans ($158), silver cuff ($3, 2 years ago), black pumps from Korea ($25, 3 years ago), vintage Gucci bag ($3).

And thanks to Meg from Style My Story for using me as her outfit inspiration!! Check out her blog because I think she has GREAT style!!

P.S. Utahans.... I am considering having street style incorporated into my blog so if I see you, you may be on here next time!

  21. What a great score! I actually prefer vintage Gucci to a lot of the newer stuff. Classic and timeless!

    ReplyDelete
  22. WOW, only $3 what a great steal!! :D

    & that sucks to hear that the Great Salt Lake was no fun. I was hoping that it'd be a good subsitute for the beach, but I guess not. Vacations to Hawaii will just have to make up for it I guess! ;)

  35. Holy crap! Well done. My favorite, favorite bag is a beat up Gucci I swiped from my mother's giveaway pile. Seriously. Have it reconditioned, and it's an heirloom piece. What a envy inspiring find!

    ReplyDelete

  38. What a great find!

    Maybe your interest in fashion is starting to rub off on your hubby. I love the outfit (and the shiny cuff)!

    ReplyDelete
  39. props to the gucci find... very nice. :D i am impressed!!

    Let me know when you get your hands on a muffin tin of some sort. If we were neighbors...I would def. lend it to ya! The cupcakes were good..but I think I need a better frosting recipe that... conceals the buttery taste...perhaps more sugar is the answer. heh.

    i hafta say that this hot weather is making being 'fashionable' quite a drag. although i agree w/ you that skirts and dresses are the way to go. i'm also trying to not add to my wardrobe either. you're being quite the inspiration, i say. hehe...

    keep up the good work missy!

  46. I love this casual outfit! It looks so so comfy and it goes to a whole new level with the addition of the Gucci bag! Can't believe you got it at a garage sale for only $3. Garage sales have true treasures sometimes.

    I think adding street style is a great idea!

  56. Hi Elaine! I am the girl you stopped on my way home by the temple today wearing the black shirt w/skirt and sunglasses. Love your blog! How neat! I have a blog, too, where I sometimes talk about fashion and especially my favorite Etsy finds:

    I would love to mention your blog on my site as you are a fellow Utahn with a passion for fashion. I especially like your post with all of the girls on bikes - very Bill Cunningham-esque (New York Times fashion photographer). Keep up the good work! Very inspiring!

  63. You give me hope that one day I will score a three dollar Gucci (or Chanel...just putting it out there) handbag! NICE. Was just reading over your closet inventory...and oh, it was thrilling. I'm serious. I love this kind of stuff. Makes me salivate. Also, I am going to have to do this: go throughout my entire closet and write it all out. I'm afraid it might take awhile. But now I am really curious.

    ps. you are so inspiring and cool!

  64. Score!!!! :D That's just awesome!
