Rudi Gernreich dress meets Emilio Pucci tights





When I won these Emilio Pucci for Wolford tights last year on ebay I had a feeling that they may pair well with my beloved Rudi Gernreich dress. I put them together and it was instant harmony, or perhaps cacophony depending on your point of view. This is a new favorite annsemble of mine. Is it something you would love to rock or maybe an outfit you wouldn’t be caught dead in? Do tell!!
Emilio Pucci for Wolford tights, $60 ebay last year
60s Rudi Gernreich dress, gift from Stanimal a few years ago $200 ebay
Love Things doll and vintage mirror, thrifted last year $1 each
Pink shoes with orange laces, $15 ebay a few years ago
Orange and white polka dot sunglasses, $10 deadstock on ebay a few years ago
rings and bracelets, ebay and flea market finds $5-$20 each
opal ring, gift from Stanimal several years ago
Fang the cat, came with our house purchased in 2000, priceless

  5. Sacramento!! Thanks so much for your respect for the color mixing, it's the best way to take an outfit over the top, where I like to be!!

    lady cherry, I have to respectfully disagree with winning on ebay! I take an auction on like a gladiator in an arena, and winning something rare and unusual is the best feeling!!! Thanks for your visit and comment!!

    Ofelia!! Thanks, and Stanimal purchased that couch at a thrift store in the 90s, it was probably made in the 60s and we love it in our office!!

    Shy Biker!! Thanks, I love color explosion! I may have to use that as my profile description!!

  10. Dash!! Thanks! Fang is a really groovy boy, he definitely "stole" the show! He actually likes to ride around like that, he makes muffins in my hair while I hold him. I'm so lucky he adopted my porch, and then me!!

  11. I would absolutely wear this - soo fab! Love the sunnies too, I haven't seen a pair of those for years. x x x

  12. Smashingbird!! A few years ago a clueless ebay seller found a bunch of them deadstock and I bought every style, $7 each!! I already had a black and white psychedelic pair that are in pretty bad shape, but was able to get that style in perfect condition in blue and white! I saved the seller hoping he may find more, these treasures still lurk in middle America! Thanks for your appreciation of my favorite things!!

  13. I'd so wear that outfit, tell me where you live so I can come and steal your entire wardrobe. x

    ReplyDelete
  14. Vix!! Only if you tell me where you live first! I wanna steal YOUR wardrobe and hang out at Noddy Holder's bar dressed in your gear!! Maybe we can just swap for a while, but I'm afraid you are much taller and slender than I!!!

  22. Ahhh rock it! I love clashing yet complementing prints and colours.
    I would love to wear this but it won't look as good on me as it does on you! You look sensational! Like you should be swinging down a London street circa sixties... Pucci would love you!!

  23. Dusk!! You gotta be kidding me!! You rock the brights with the best of 'em, this would look killer on you!! Rudi and Emilio are my very favorite designers, I'll be posting all my treasures in time! I sure wish I was swingin in the sixties, and thanks for the compliment!!!

  27. so awesome. I love it. We just learned about those two designers in my fashion illustration class. That's awesome to see people still wearing their iconic designs.

  28. Oh wow... I love this look. The shades are the icing on the cake.

  29. My heart blogged!! Thanks, and I know being a collar isn't for all fur babies! I tried it once with my tiny chubby short legged cat LaTigra and she barely wrapped around!

    Melody!! To discover Emilio and Rudi all over again would be a dream! They are my absolute favorite designers, I'm glad you fell in love too!

    Wendy B!!! Thanks sooo much! I know you have amazing taste in the unique and rare and I'm ecstatic that you like what you see here!!!!
