I am currently in downtown Boston, on a blistering 40 degree summers day. It’s so humid I feel like I can’t breath properly; but I’ll endure the potential asthma attack in order to reach my destination: the Marc by Marc Jacobs store. It has been a long time in the making: countless purchases made online from sparse selections, and over-priced indulgences from larger retailers. I could only dream about reaching the actual home base of the designer I loved so much, and blowing all my money on the “special items”. For those of you who are unfamiliar with these “items”, they are everything from jewellery, to screen printed tees and bags. Why are they so great? Almost all of it is under $100.00 US; but there’s a catch. You can only invest in these great finds in store, no ordering online or buying at a secondary retailer. Oh, and by the way, there are under 10 of these stores in North America.
So what did I pick up? An art deco geometric metallic ring and bracelet, a wish bone and skull necklace, and a snazzy laptop sleeve (not a special item).
Wishbone Necklace, Marc Jacobs special item
Skull Necklace, Marc Jacobs special item
Ring, Marc Jacobs special item
What else did I get up to this week? Purchased some leather over the knee boots, the Michael Kors Bromley to be exact.
Boot, Michael Kors Bromley, $270.00 CAD
Well that’s as interesting as it’s going to get, so au revoir for now my friends,
