Like Visions of Johanna or Something

LOVING the lady-like simplicity of Marc Jacobs’ Fall Collection!

This older, borderline-dowdy, Marc Jacobs girl is like a grown-up Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, walking the runway to the tune of Over The Rainbow. But while obviously geared toward a more mature market, the collection still gives a nod to his usual vintage-y gamine: flat maryjanes, girlish anklets, and nerdy glasses are used in almost every outfit.

Though some of the midi-length skirts and baglike sweaters included in this collection may be downright unwearable for non-runway-models, many looks are actually quite achievable for those under six feet–and most are a timeless wardrobe investment.

Like this phenomenal cocoon coat. Okay, it’s white, and that’s debatably “timeless” for some of the clumsier among us. Still, gotta love that 20’s dropwaist and the asymmetric fur collar.

And this three piece suit. Every woman NEEDS one. Is this on the Tim Gunn Guide to Style or what?

Ultra-glamorous 30’s-style gown. Epic. With maryjanes and.. anklets, it looks like? ADORE!

Can we talk about over-the-elbows gloves? I think these are leather.

Okay, I just picked this one, because the model has my haircut. But, no, I love the kinda librarian chicness goin’ on.

So cute! Classic! Fur shrug is just the right amount of shoulder-y. And again the glove is killing me.


Video of the show. Okay, Marc. You had me at Over The Rainbow. I love Tavi’s commentary (as usual) and I stole the title of this entry from her.

OOH LA LANVIN!

I’m not sure where we were exactly, when we came upon these amazing store windows. It was after midnight, and we were headed to a club in Soho or Chelsea or something. Anyway, I had to jump out of the car and snap a few pics with the ol’ Blackberry!


The dress is Lanvin, and the flower/star shapes and little scottie dog are cut & folded paper! LOVE IT.

Very inspiring!
