Yesterday, I went to this big warehouse to spot some new outfits and get some inspiration and I bumped into this amazing dress, I think I could stare at it for hours..perhaps days?
The first thing that came in my mind was that I had to turn this into a real outfit and publish it because let’s be honest, this is a piece of art and it deserves to be seen, right?
Marc Jacobs is an American fashion designer, born in 1963.
He used to work as the creative director of Louis Vuitton (1997-2014). At the time he already had his own brand and he was the youngest designer to have ever been awarded the fashion industry’s highest tribute: the Perry Ellis Award for “New Fashion Talent”. (After this award, he won 11 others in different categories)
In May 2009, Marc co-hosted, with Kate Moss, a “model and muse”-themed gala for the New York City Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.
As you can notice, he has worked in the fashion industry for quite a while and he got pretty successful already. In 2014 he made the decision to leave Louis Vuitton and focus on his own line.
Besides fashion, fragrances and accessories, Marc also started to sell beauty products (and it’s going pretty well!).
“The indefinable characteristics of his namesake label are the result of a certain unique, uncommonly frank and brilliantly outspoken perspective.” This quote comes from Marc’s own website and I couldn’t think of a better way to describe this amazing brand.
Marc has, besides the official Marc Jacobs website, his own site about himself where you can find pictures from his personal life, interviews, quotes, events he attended etc. It’s actually pretty interesting to take a look in someone’s life this way..
Marc Jacobs also has three Instagram accounts, one for the brand, for himself and for his dog (who he obviously loves more than anything). And believe it or not, each account is just as interesting and definitely worth keeping up with.
Ted Baker is a luxury clothing retailer, based in London. The brand is known for its floral designs with an eye for detail.
Ted Baker’s accessories and bags are usually marked with a little bow or heart which makes it easy to recognize the brand.
For Christmas, I bought myself one of their top 10 bags, the black Minacon
shopper bag (€41). This small bag has a cute bow on the front and a zipped department inside, it’s great for carrying essentials like a wallet, notebook and perhaps some make- up..
