Standout Show of the Day: Marc by Marc Jacobs

As cool as the eighties vibe at Marc Jacobs' self-titled show a few days ago was, it was really the little sister collection that caught my attention this time around. It has a cool hippy/grunge feel, sort of like a WASPy girl in the nineties who runs away with a lumberjack. If that makes any sense whatsoever. I LOVE the dress above. It is gorgeous and flattering. The boots and socks are also sweet.

Only Marc (or Marc's stylist) would think to pair a boho dress with stripey tights.

The dress is insanely cool, the Hermes-y scarf is a HUGE improvement on the played-out keffiyah trend, the tights rock, the hat is pure Molly Ringwald in Pretty in Pink, and the boots and socks are awesome.

I want this coat. Seriously.
This will be my uniform next fall.
