Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear & Thom Browne Spring 2009 Menswear

Marc Jacobs' collection was koo-koo-krazy!

Marc by Marc Jacobs was so much better. It wasn't anything ground-breaking and OMGZ, but i still want everything. It was more a muted palette with lots of lust-worthy dresses, frocks, and shoez. And mmm, more male models, plz.

I want everything. That multi-tiered necklace with it's crazy colors just totes pop on the pastel outfit. And yes yes yes to the blazer and high waisted shorts (WITH A STRIPE!).

I'm a fan of the cuffed pants on boys. I saw a lot of that in England, so I hope I'll get to see some variation in L.A./Irvine.

Nicely-fitted blazers = aces. See guys, this is how you wear shorts. No more baggy over the knee shorts, please!

Nothing welcomes spring like a floral flouncy dress...

...or a bold printed dress...

Speaking of more koo-koo-krazy, can we talk about Thom Browne's collection, plz?

What's up emasculating menswear?

WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON? I love all their faces--that is exactly what my face would be too if I had to wear a tutu or pants that are falling off...or if you made me look like a Socialist school boy..or...I can go on and on. Click on each picture for more detailed glory.

Marc Jacobs Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear Collection

ok, so this is not really irvine fashion (and by "not really" i mean, totes not) but let's discuss some of the ready-to-wear spring 2009 fashion, yeah?

Marc Jacobs
I don't know how I feel about a whole hodge-podge of things on a person:

Plaid! Corset belt! Floral dress! Hat! Sunglasses! Two types of handbags? Chunky necklace with chunky bracelet. Oh man. I mean, taken one at a time, I can digest it more.

Although by the end of the collection, when we saw more dresses, I was more into it:

Less accessories and that bold print on the dress is di-vine.

And I love this chic outfit. Yes always to blazers. And finally, Marc showed some cropped pants that actually showed knees. I was beginning to get scared that he was knee-phobic in this collection.

Also, I'm way into that purse. Yes quilted exteriors.

Speaking of the accessories:
I'm way into the hats, although there is no reason for me to ever wear one.

But the shoes. NO. NO. NO. When will shoes stop with its ridiculousness?!

I need to make myself one of these bracelets. I never wear bracelets, but c'mon, this is totes ador. I am super super coveting thee.

This isn't accessories, but I do love the folding and pinching of the fabric on this:

And last but not least:

Why the skirt and man-dals, Marc-y?
