I really love Marc Jacobs! The clothes are always AMAZING! There is something more than just the clothes, it's the attitude. It's the attitude of the ads with Juergen Teller's photos, it's the attitude of Marc Jacobs himself. I think I love him so much solely on the fact that he is such a non conformist and he wears a skirt, he has a shitload of crazy cool tattoos, he does things that are not expected. I can relate. I LOVE Marc Jacobs, I really am obsessed!
The spring collection is amazing! A mix of 90's prints, bright colors, crop tops and bows. Super bright, pattern on pattern styling. LOVE!

Elle Tahari Spring 2010
Vena Cava Spring 2010
This outfit is so 90's with the corset top and body con fit. Love the paint splatters, also super 90's.
Prabal Gurung Spring 2010
I love this one! It reminds me of a cross between the 40's and the 80's. The 40's because of the polka dots and length of this dress; the 80's because of the big huge bow on the neck. Very cool mix!
Organic By John Patrick Spring 2010
Monique Lhuiller Spring 2010
This Dress is a modern version of the 70's disco dresses; the biggest difference is the length of the dress, it is much shorter. I love how the sleeves are loose and draped, a great reinterpretation of the disco dress.

The documentary Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton is great to watch to see how collections are inspired and how they come up with the ideas. There is one part of the movie where they find a purple vintage shirt and recreate pieces that are inspired by one shirt, so it really shows that many collections are inspired directly by vintage clothes. (watch trailer here)
I had to interrupt the fall fashion recap to show you all the treasures that are about to go up on the Etsy shop this week! There are some really cool pieces that will be great for fall! A mixture of dresses, skirts and jumpsuits from different eras.
The Hippie Collection is almost sold out! Be sure to check it out before it's all gone!

Today I'm going to switch it up a little bit; instead of showing different trends, I am going to show one of my favorite designer's collections. The Organic by John Patrick collection first caught my eye with the clothes and outfits and how they were styled together, I would definitely wear all of the pieces in this collection; when I realized that this collection is organic I was in love!
When I think of organic clothing the first thing I think of is yoga wear. It is refreshing that there is an organic line that is super hip and stylish. It is really great to see this as someone who's diet consists of organic foods and who goes out of their way to stay away from chemicals and practically anything that is un-natural. This collection is simple yet sophisticated, a subtle and smart hint of sexy.
I am indeed a huge fan of the mini dress. The gold and brown colors are amazing! Love the shoes and socks combo!
Love the looseness of this top and how the beige color of the top goes so well with the gray skirt. The shoes are also really great!

Biker Chick Chic
I am always a sucker for the biker look; it brings out the bad ass in me. Making it's second run on the runway for fall 09.
I really love the top in this look! Very gauzy, and I love the little splash of color! Add a pair of leather skinnys and a pair of boots and you're well on your way to becoming that bad ass version of yourself. Simple and fabulous!
It's biker chic made feminine with this look. That dress is fabulous! I love how the top of it is lacy with fringe hanging for the sleeve, top it off with a leather vest and great studded heels. LOVE those heels!
A much looser version of the bad ass biker, this ensemble of course has the leather jacket. I love that in fall 09 the shoulder pad has it's moment, although this jacket doesn't really have shoulder pads, I'm digging the little sleeve poof. The looseness of this outfit really comes from the harem pants which were also a new addition to fall 09. The tight fitting lace top is perfect with the harem pants. Love the ankle boots. And the gloves really top off this look.
More to come on the Countdown to Fashion Week!
