Items for Sale

I have procrastinated long enough so, I finally cleaned and organized my room today. What else can I do when I am snowed in with 2 ft of snow?!

Thanks to all the cleaning and organizing, I am listing my Forever 21 satin black dress and Cole Haan boots for sale.

I have a few more pieces of clothing but I think I will most likely bring those to a consignment store. I do still of course have the Marc by Marc Jacobs Owl Lady bag in Fire that needs to go to a new home of course.

The listings for my items can be found in my booth on Bonanzle. There is a widget on the right that should direct you to the booth, should you be interested.

Help me clear my wardrobe, will ya? Heh.

Laptop sleeve in Red or Blue?

I have been looking for a laptop sleeve for my little Black Book (13″ Lenovo X300 laptop) for a while now but I haven’t really found anything that I particularly like. However, Marc Jacobs almost never fails to save the day!

For the Resort collection, Marc by Marc Jacobs has these two bright fancy laptop sleeves available at Shopbop for $68 each.

So which do I choose? I am naturally a sucker for red but I saw the blue-violet in person at Bloomingdales today after work and it’s a great pop of color! Unfortunately they did not have anything in the croc red print available in store for me to compare. Boo!

Which color would you pick? Please chime in!

Disappointment and Outfit for the Day

A really kind and sweet friend decided to purchase a Marc by Marc Jacobs Key Pouch for me as a random act of kindness. I was super happy and glad as the pouch would replace my current cell phone pouch that is in tatters (literally!)

However when it arrived today, I was uber disappointed that the stitching for the key pouch is off. Totally bummed, gutted, dismayed. Here’s a pic of it:

It’s a gorgeous color but I just can’t bring myself to keep it. Boo! I’m sending it back to the seller tomorrow. *sigh*

Anyway, here’s what I wore today:

Back to School with Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs‘s new back-to-school capsule collection, cheekily called “Don’t Miss the Marc,” was made with a younger set of girls in mind. (But it’s not too juvenile for we older girls to covet.) The line consists of stretchy denim jeans (a cute “M” embellishes the back pockets), little denim skirts in gray and blue, soft jersey blazers in red and black, and an assortment of leggings, scarves, and T-shirts in an array of adorable prints. Our favorite is the Wildflower print, an animal motif that comes in a classic brown leopard and a bright, cheery purple that looks great covering a tee. The best news is that the entire line retails for under $200, with most items under $100. “Don’t Miss the Marc” lands in stores and at Bloomingdales.com on August 1 — just in time to whip your school (or work) wardrobe back into shape with a few extra fun pieces.

Knit blazers $168
T-shirts $68

Stretch denim pants $98

Stretch denim skirts $98

Leggings – striped $68; solid $58

Scarves $48

I love the adorable Miss Marc t-shirts from this capsule collection! I think it is a great move by Marc Jacobs to reach out to a different segment of the population who adores his creations but can’t quite stomach the high luxe price under his Collection label.

I’m definitely looking forward to seeing these items in the store!
