Marc Jacobs: Hot Mess

The Victoria Beckham ads, where she wears that little Whoville hat/thing on her head?

The odd-colored, strange proportioned plucked-from-the-hand-me-down-bag dresses?

The backward-heel shoes?

The man is just a train wreck.

and yet, his fashion is so in demand these days. I've been on the elevator with him. 'Geek chic' is the perfect term for him. He wore very geeky glasses and dingy sneakers.

I love his designs, but way out of my price range!

Hi, Kitty.

Isn't MJ much more sleek and buff these days, though? Less geek than chic?

The only things I like in his line are those handbags with the giant, puffy double handles. You can schlep the kitchen sink in those bags and you shoulder will feel like you're toting bags of cotton candy.

Of course, they're way out of my price range... I'm just going by how lovely they are to try in the store.

Oh I was just talking about this last night with my friend Melissa, I don't get the Marc Jacobs mania, I hate his over use of heavy cotton fabric. The only clothes of his I would probably wear are the ones designed for Louis Vuitton and they are soooo far out of my price range.

Hi, Fishwithoutbicycle!
Yes, I can't imagine what some of those cotton outfits must look like by lunchtime. A wrinkled mess, I'm sure.
