I love a good sale. In fact, I try to shop only when there is a sale, which is why you will always find me shopping in July and January when designer clothing prices are reduced by 75%.
As luck would have it, on the exact day that I was shopping for a friend’s birthday gift, Saks had its first day of final markdown. I have always been drawn to the designs of Emilio Pucci, although admittedly, I have never purchased any, simply because I have never found any pieces during sale time. I love the bold prints, which to me, are reminiscent of the 1960s and 1970s, two of my favorite fashion eras. His clothes were worn by both Sophia Loren and Jackie Kennedy, two of my fashion idols; that might help explain my fondness for the designer.
Since his death in 1992, his daughter Laudomia continues to design under the Pucci name. In my opinion, her designs have retained all of the bold, cheerful, and timeless fabrics that define this fashion house.
The top by Marc Jacobs, which was also on sale, is no longer available. I have one that is similar in both look and price. Off-the-shoulder tops continue to trend, and, although they require a strapless bra, which is the bane of my existence, they are worth it.
While some people find the frenzy of sale shopping to be unpleasant, I find it to be like a treasure hunt, one in which the treasures can be yours to have forever.

Thank you Sabina!!!
Yes we should definitely follow each other on Pinterest. Admittedly, I am pretty lax about Pinterest, but this might be the kick in the pants that I need!
My mom made a blouse out of a Pucci print material, which the 3 of us all wore for a series of posts a couple of years ago!! His prints are so pretty, and this skirt is amazing on you, Lesley!!
I want to see the pictures from those posts!
