Here’s the deal. It’s no secret that I’m in love with Marc Jacobs and I want him to be my gay husband. Or at the very least, I want him to adopt me so he and his Brazilian fiance can be My Two Dads. But do you really know why I harbor so much affection for The Jacobs?
Is it because he rocks skorts and kilts like I wear jeans every day? Yes. But it’s mostly because of stuff like this:
These babies are a mere $12 each! A chunky ring is a great way to add a punch to any outfit – from jeans, a tank and flip-flops to a cocktail dress and heels.
Marc always has lots of inexpensive little trinkets, tees and canvas bags in his shops and it’s such good fun to sift through them. I spent more than a few afternoons at the Marc Jacobs store on Mount Street in London’s Mayfair neighborhood doing just that. It might be the only place in the world where you can buy a $2,000 bag and a $10 bracelet on the same receipt. I think it’s brilliant that pretty much any girl on the street can walk in and come out with a Marc Jacobs shopping bag on her elbow. I, personally, can’t think of a better way to brighten up your lunch hour.
