I need it: Marc by Marc Jacobs tee

Marc (by Marc) Jacobs has done it again.  Every season I covet at least one of his tees.  How amazing is this whimsical owl design?

This tee ($88) would look so cute paired with a military-inspired jacket for fall.  Or wear it alone with skinny jeans and flats…  Or just buy it and have it shipped directly to Raleigh Fashionista Corporate Headquarters so I can wear it with with a military-inspired jacket or skinny jeans and flats!

A Fashionista’s Folly

I’ve sang the praises of Gilt Groupe before but today, it’s got me a little bummed.  You see, featured in the current Marc by Marc Jacobs sale is a top I bought just over a year ago when it was part of the current collection.

See?  Here I am wearing it (con cardigan)  in Austria last May:

{Please ignore my clever handmade “No Smoking” sign.  Those Austrians are quite the nicotine fiends.}

And I have to say, seeing it offered up for the bargain basement price of $68 is slightly disheartening.

But!  Let my loss can be your gain if you happen to like this particular top, have an extra $68 in your pocket and are the proud owner of a Gilt Groupe membership.

Spare the bank, spoil the eyes

To kick off the week, I thought I’d show a couple of gorgeous sunglass options – both styles for under $100.

These super-chic Marc by Marc Jacobs shades ($98) are a great way to add a splash of style to your summer.  Choose chocolate frames with goldtone arms or go for the black and silver combination.

Or if you’re looking to add a little pop of color, try these MICHAEL Michael Kors aviators ($95).  These are cute and playful – perfect for summer!

I Need It: Marc by Marc Jacobs Feather Tee

I know, I know.  I just posted an “I Need It” last Thursday.  So while this may come across as greedy, I couldn’t resist featuring this gorgeous MbMJ tee ($88).  I do so love a unique t-shirt and this one ticks all the boxes.

The whimsical feather motif is casual but the metallic accents and wide neckline give it a more fashion-forward feel.  And that coral color is to die for!  But it’s also available in Stingray Grey and Key Lime from Shopbop if that’s more your speed.

Bag Yourself a Bendel

I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for Henri Bendel.  So it’s no wonder I immediately took a liking to this lovely bag ($395) featuring an off-kilter version of their iconic stripes.

At 14 inches across and nearly 12 inches tall, it’s big enough to fit your essentials for a weekend away but since I’ve been known to lug around purses that could just about double as laundry bags (cue the Chloe Edith and the LV Neverfull GM and the MbMJ Totally Turnlock Faridah), I’d probably use this as a regular ol’ day bag.  Especially in my London days…  Toss in a book for the tube, an umbrella and an A-Z street guide (every Londoner’s BFF) on top of all the usual suspects – makeup pouch, sunnies, phone, mints and wallet and suddenly my Neverfull was… well… nearly full.  So I think I could certainly make use of every square inch of available space in this tote.

The Bendel bag features gold tone hardware and python trim for an extra-luxe feel.  Not that you need it when you’ve already got the Bendel stripes on your side.

I Need It: Marc by Marc Jacobs top

I fell in love with a top.  More specifically, I fell in love with the Cecelia knit wool top from Marc by Marc Jacobs ($280).  I can’t really put into words what makes this piece so special.

Maybe it’s the understated grey wool combined with the gorgeous draping.

Maybe it’s that the detail in the back is as beautiful as the front.

 

 

 

 

I don’t know.  But I know I need it.  My birthday is coming up next month.  Perhaps my readers would consider taking up a collection?
