Fashion month always feels official when Marc shows Monday night and then follows up with Marc by Marc on Tuesday…this season was no exception. We will get into Edie from last night in a future post; but for now let’s focus on today’s little presentation. While stalking twitter and instagram for behind-the-scenes I first saw the turbans. Then I saw the color palette. Then I thought…”I think this just might be a winner.” One of my favorites and I sent texts almost simultaneously….”MxM….!!!!!” That summed up how that conversation was going to go.
I blame this new found love for eclecticism and bohemianism on a few people…
And maybe a coast.
Well maybe. A little. Just a dash. I blame it on the California sisters. The 3 birds that actually style eclectic prints and layers of multiple levels and add turbans and other head accessories with a great red lip and own it. I had west coast envy the whole time in Hawaii. My all-black ensembles just seemed..so…blah, so dark…so depressing. And then Marc presents these girls that are so like my west coast besties that I actually had a heart palpitation. And let’s not even get started on the rug on the runway. Amazing stripe layout. How ’bout those stripes? Yeah, this one is a winner and I
might be am totally back in love.

It’s Tuesday!!!! And that means, it’s the obsession of the day, week, month, year and so on. Now, we all know that I don’t fancy a print for myself. While, I love prints…hello Celine and the botanical masterpiece, I just can’t seem to pull them off without looking like a nit-whit. However, a dot is different. It’s not really a print. It’s more of a little pattern that gives a lil’ pep in your step. I would never wear this in a dress or maxi clearly, but a silk blouse, a denim pant (obvi) and even a little scarf around the neck and I’ll be seeing stars. Those don’t count as a print either.
A dear friend and mentor for many years is the genius behind the obsession du jour. Reiko always loved a dot in our old PTF assortment marathons. What’s not to love about a stripe and a dot was the usual antidote. Marc Jacobs and his accessories never seem to fail me with RK at the reigns of these perfectly designed creatures. Perfect for everyday strolls, days at the beach, short-lived as they are or even little date nights out. They just get it. I feasted my eyes on this little collection and nearly ordered every piece. Can we just talk about the most stunning shades of blue? Piercing! And the essential, classic black and white combo? Why this will add a lovely compliment to my everyday styling. Fun. Classic. Quirky. So me. So you. Thanks Reiko for keeping the dot in all its glory.
Oh, the endless inspiration of the dot.
the color combination....my blue heaven!
a lovely everyday accessory to any other handbag in your graces that day.
a modern-day addition to my dismal palette. (my pick too)
and this one makes walking the dog even easier!
