A little bit of EveryTHING

Ahh, yes I found some time to blog!

HISTORY:
So almost every fashionable blogger has a deep and everlasting love for Marc Jacobs. But to tell the truth, I've never really known much about him, so I decided to do a little report on him.

MARC JACOBS



The desire of many of your obsessions began April 9, 1963. He was born in the big Apple, New York City. After Art and Design school he entered Parson's School of Design in 1981. Not surprisingly, Marc Jacobs was one of the best in his class. He received numerous awards including the Perry Ellis Gold Thimble Award, the Chester Weinberg Gold Thimble Award, and the Design Student of the Year Award all in 1984.
His first collection was a line of knit sweaters for Ruben Thomas, Inc, he did this still while in school. But his first collection that was under his MARC JACOB's name he started in 1981. And it seemed like a wonderful few years, because the next year he was the youngest ever person awarded with The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CDFA) Perry Ellis Award for New Fashion Talent. That next year he became head of women design for Perry Ellis.
But in fall 1993 Marc Jacobs and Duffy launched their own design company of, MARC JACOBS INTERNATIONAL COMPANY Inc.

Now that I'm a little caught up with Marc Jacobs, here are some of my favorites from his Marc by MARC JACOBS SPRING 2007 Read to Wear collection










NOW ONTO THE NEWS:

If you didn't watch Good Morning America this past Friday morning, then you missed the story of the Subway Romance.



Patrick Moberg saw the girl of his dream on the #5 subway train in New York City. He never got the nerve to go talk to the girl before she got off, so in hopes to find her he told his story on nygirlofmydreams.com with a drawing of her and asked if anyone knew who she was.



Lucky enough, a friend of the mystery girl recognized her from the drawing and told him. The mystery girl ended up being an Australian magazine intern named, Camille Hayton.


The 2 united at last.
*Best of luck to them.

MUSIC:

My new music obsession was introduced to me be a friend of mine who knew I liked the Shins.



The name of the band is Band of Horses. There just another amazing indie rock band that was formed in Seattle. To me, all of there songs vary dramatically some sound like The Shins, some country, some very Led Zeppelin. My favorite songs are "Is There A Ghost" "Cigarettes Wedding Bands" and "Funeral", but all of their songs are amazing.
You can see their video for "Funeral" here.


RANDOM


I've been in a search for a radio that will better go with my bedroom, and I had to look no further than my own basement.



It goes with my bedroom much better and I adore how it looks.

Who's That Fashionista? said...

Hey!
Love the info you gave on Marc Jacobs! I adore some of his pieces but, I am not obsessed with him like other fashionistas are. Maybe because I am still a student and cannot afford his clothing, yet. Anyway I would like to know if you study fashion in school?

That NYC story was so sweet. Definitely a modern romance for our times--new Hallmark movie? perhaps, perhaps...
