As many of you know, I love, love, LOVE Marc by Marc Jacobs. (A few of my favorite pieces can be seen here, here and here.) The youthful and quirky aesthetic perfectly suits my personal style and the price point suits my wallet (a Marc by Marc wallet, of course) much more so than many of the other lines I covet. Several years ago, I adopted a quality over quantity philosophy while shopping and in doing so, I found myself purchasing more and more Marc by Marc. The pieces are always on trend yet timeless, satisfying my price per wear rule as I know I’ll wear them for years to come. I left all of my Marc clothing behind when I moved to the beach although I couldn’t part with my favorite watch necklace and decided that a canvas Marc bag wasn’t too flashy for my new life in a small town. That being said, I’m experiencing a little Marc withdrawal, so when I read that the Spring 2011 show would be streamed live I was giddy with excitement. I loaded the page a half hour before show time and crossed my fingers that Telmex (the provider of my rather slow internet connection) would take pity on my fashion deprived soul and allow me to watch the show without too many interruptions. There were a few hiccups, but luckily I was able to watch it again without issue. (If you missed it, you can still stream it here.)
It was clear from the first look out that this collection is exactly what my dreams are made of: stripes, jumpsuits, bold colors and instant classics. Marc Jacobs, did you design this collection just for me? No? Well, that’s okay because it honestly makes me want to be back in the US in time for spring just so I can snag at least a few these pieces and rock them all season long!
Let’s start with the stripes! From dresses to skirts to jumpsuits, Marc made my stripe loving heart go pitter-patter. I want to wear each of these looks…like, NOW! Is it just me or do the bold colors and stripes remind you of Fruit Stripe Gum?
