I promised to show y'all some of my prized vintage Gucci loot...left over from my "Miss Gucci" days of the 80's! Those of you who have known me since way back then will certainly remember my obsession with all things Gucci! Well, gone are all my Gucci pocketbooks, bit loafers, tennis shoes, sweatshirts, sweaters, et cetera. Here are some photos of the Gucci accessories that have stood the test of time in my life...
A Gucci serving tray...with husband's "Signature Beverage" Jack & Coke, served in Waterford 'Alaina' highball glasses.
My husband keeps this tray in the "Romper Room" and uses it to serve beverages to his guests.
These are vintage Gucci cocktail stirrers...
The cocktail stirrers...opened up.
These are part of a set of taller Gucci highball glasses...
A Gucci blackjack shoe! I remember the day 30 years ago...standing in the Bal Harbor, Florida Gucci store, when I saw this. I believe I squealed out loud. Of course, husband just loves this piece!
Over 30 years old...with a leather cover and the Gucci logo.
And, of course...Gucci playing cards.
This is probably my prized Gucci possesion---a Gucci beach towel. My maid-of-honor and good friend Kim's Mama spotted this towel in the Chicago Gucci store. Knowing that I would want it, she paid hundreds of dollars for it, and then asked her daughter "I know Janice wants this towel, but do you think she'll mind the price?" Uh...of course not! I still have it Mrs. Voller!!!
A gucci bill/stationery holder.
I bought tons of these Gucci letter sheets and envelopes...This has always been my "signature stationery."
This Gucci address book has stood the test of time for sure. It contains the contact information of friends, family, and business associates spanning 30+ years. Some have passed away, some we have lost touch with, and others are still close to us. Thank goodness I made the decision many years ago to make entries with a pencil!
Gucci eyeglass case...a classic!
Gucci business card holder. I seriously must look for another one of these as this one is starting to show wear!
Pretty little Gucci ashtray.
A Gucci link belt...so very 80's!
So see y'all, I have other fashion obsessions and collections. What about you? What collection do you have that you cherish?
