There was nothing classic or timeless about this type of pattern, so we frugal buyers tended to avoid them back in the day. You certainly couldn't change the look with accessories on these babies! If you wanted your earrings or shoes to even show up with a pattern of this boldness, they had be Huge. I mean, chandelier bobbles and neon platforms.
But now - I must be coming around. I think they are wearable art now and in the very best way. Hang one on a white wall while you aren't wearing it. The detail and design are really outstanding. And if you can live without a Pucci label, these dresses may even be affordable.
