Runway Copycat: Marc Jacobs


I tend to be veeeery impatient. This applies to pretty much all aspects of my life, and fashion is no exception. The stuff for fall from this past New York Fashion Week? Yeah, I want to wear it NOW.  If the look is simple enough–like this one from Marc Jacobs’ show– it’s fairly easy to duplicate. So, without further ado:


1. American Apparel Tri-blend long sleeve v-neck, $30  2. Forever21 Tribal print scarf, $5.80  3. long satin gloves, $3.99  4. Notch-front full skirt, approx. $47   5. Urban Oufitters Opaque tights, $12   6. Aldo Arnoldoa heels, $70

runwaycloset0209 Since I never get rid of things, I was able to scrounge up a reasonable facsimile of the MJ look just by digging around in my ridiculously overstuffed closet! This is why I don’t throw stuff out, people. You just never know…


Gray top, American Apparel. Black skirt, Anthropologie (actually, this is two black skirts because the one on top is butt-baringly short and has a large opening in the front). Leather gloves, velvet heels, silk scarf, all vintage.

    This is EXACTLY why I need to stop donating stuff…I always end up regretting it.

    Great interpretation – both times over. You look great!

    Perfect interpretation! I’m with you on being a hoader. Who knows when I’m going need a taffeta black poodle skirt… Great post! I added your blog to my links.
