I don’t own any actual Pucci pieces, except for an adorable designer undergarment I bought on eBay years ago. But wow, this fab dress is close enough for me. The print and colors are distinctive, and called out to me at the Molly Mutt Thrift. And with my volunteer discount, this beauty cost $4.

The actual maker is Diane Gilman, a designer who makes great-fitting jeans, and sells them on Home Shopping Network. This dress is lined, and 100 percent silk, and feels like a dream to wear – thanks Diane. It’s a little short on me, so tights are needed.
I enjoy surrendering the waist with this dress, so it retains a mod 1960’s Pucci shape (similar). I went with cheeky short hair (the Gala by Gabor) to harmonize with the vintage feel. Above, I added a vintage 60’s swing jacket in hot pink, thrifted in NYC; below the dress stands alone. Love the bright color and easy shape.
