Finds on the Fly: July 20, 2012

Oh blog, sweet blog!  How much have I neglected you, poor blog!  Let me return to you,  wash the dust from off thy face and take you up to walk again.  Let us search together for treasures in unseen places and rejoice at the pearls in the sands!

To you, my dear readers, I apologize.  A Not Serious,  But Nevertheless Of Some Duration illness has called me away.  I shall try to return to publishing regularly.  I shall try to do better by you.  And I thank you for waiting, for being here upon my return.

Today, I found the most wonderful pair of iconically Emillo Pucci stretch pants

These Pucci Signature Archive Print Stretch Trousers are on eBay, and may well go for a song, as the bidding now stands at $1.56!  These lovely crop pants are offered in an inimitable Pucci print,  which is both so wonderfully nostalgic while still being perfectly on trend!  They have a primary background of aqua with splashes of purple, grape, water-mellon, pink, black, lime green and - of course - white.  

While they are gorgeous with the matching blouse as shown on the runway above,  they would also be stunning with the right simple white top.

A piece like this should be thought of as a fashion investment.  Pucci is an entirely original designer.  His work will never go out of style, and the style he created will surface again and again as the wheel of fashion rolls.  Don't miss this chance to own your piece of fashion history.

The size 8 pants are offered for auction by Fashionablebargains.  They have a lovely set of offerings right now,  including a seven day set of Stella McCartney knickers,  and an aggressively soft and feminine Tucker blouse by Gaby Basora.

Also discovered on eBay this morning is an incredibly rare Eisenberg Original 1940's Sun-Dress for summer!  

This lovely dress is made of a light cotton print with striking black velvet piping at the neckline.  The dress is cut and sewn beautifully, and hangs just below the knee.  It sports what I can only call a "modified sweetheart" neckline created with that unusual black piping.

So much attention is lavished on the costume jewelry which came with Eisenberg Original clothing that one is apt to forget to take the time to appreciate the gorgeous gowns this jewelry adorned.  Sadly,  time has taken it's toll on so many of the dresses,  and an intact gown is a rare find.

Though this needs a bit of tender loving care,  it is entirely ready to be made wearable and is such a rare find that I shall be interested in seeing where the price goes.  Due to close on the 22nd,  the current bidding stands at $78.03, and I expect stiff competition as the auction draws to a close.  Garments from the 1940's are becoming increasingly rare to find, especially those of natural fabrics (save silk, which lasts forever if it's loved).

Offered by Collecioni_Privi,  whose current collection includes a stunning Pierre Cardin which almost stole this place in the blog.

Such gorgeous finds!   It's truly a wonderful time to love vintage!

Happy shopping my honey bunnies!  And thank you for welcoming me back!
