It's Old...But It's Gucci!!!

Today...from Miss Janice's "Umbrella Collection"...A Gucci umbrella! It's old...as in 1980 old!!! Yes, this is one of my prized possessions. I wipe the raindrops off the cloth to protect it.
It has nice wooden end with a brass handle, and of course, the Gucci logo!
The other day, my husband took me out for lunch and to the movies..."HERE'S WHAT I WORE"

All it has to do is rain for 5 minutes and the humidity is 150% here in Florida. It felt like it was 1,000 degrees that day and I wanted to wear something loose {think stretchy pants for buttered popcorn} and cool! The white linen slacks and yellow linen big shirt was just perfect...comfy, but a bit put together.

To make it look like I didn't get ready to leave the house in less than 30 minutes, I wore my Gucci ballet flats, a silver choker with a monogrammed pendant and the matching earrings, my 'Oyster Perpetual' watch by Rolex, and my roll ring wedding band by Cartier. My ponytail was adorned with a white grosgrain ribbon, my lipstick was 'Star Red' by Chanel, and my fragrance of choice was 'Lauren' by Ralph Lauren.
I carried this cute little pouchette pocketbook also by Gucci.
Tomorrow on the blog...more vintage Gucci loot from the past!

Can't go wrong with Gucci. It was one of my very first purchases in seventh grade.

Great umbrella. I love when they really provide cover and look classy as well!
We used to call umbrellas "bumpershoots" when I was a kid.. I have no idea what that was supposed to mean but it came from a popular radio show host of the time.
Hope Friday treats you right!

Love it all!
Especially the stretchy pants for buttered popcorn, hahaha! Your umbrella is gorgeous. Gotta love any oldie IF it's a Gucci!

Love,
Mrs. Kindergarten

Oh, I love Gucci from the 80's- I have a pair of gold high heeled sandals and a black evening bag, from then( the logo was more of a script then, rather than the block letters of today)
