This morning started out like most Wednesday mornings...I got my daughter to school, came home, made a cup of coffee and sat down to check my email, and twitter, and read The New York Post, Fashion Wrap Up and Style Republic Magazine online. As I checked my IPod calendar I realized that today was not any ordinary Wednesday, it was the day that Gucci was having their much anticipated Fashion Show on the runways during Milan Fashion Week.

Thanks to technology, today I had a front row seat at Gucci's show, and this collection of clothes, bags and shoes far exceeded my expectations. The beautiful deep teals and jewel-tone greens evoked feelings of happiness. The structured bags were fabulous and I see an updated Jackie bag in my future.
Frida Giannini who is the sole creative director for Gucci had big shoes to fill when Tom Ford left the brand. I remember thinking so goes Tom Ford, so goes Gucci. But there was never anything to worry about because as Gucci celebrates its 90th Anniversary the helm of this iconic fashion house is being steered by a woman who is a creative dynamo and has clearly made her mark on Gucci, and the fashion industry.

So today as I head out to do my errands and pick my daughter up from school I am grabbing a jewel-tone cardigan to go with my 7 Jeans and Ann Taylor top. My handbag today is my Gucci Sukey.
After all this is no ordinary Wednesday...it's Gucci day!
