Marc by Marc Jacobs FW 2011. Alternatives

EN: One of the collections I really loved for the next season is the Marc by Marc Jacobs one.

RO: Una dintre colectiile care mi-a placut foarte mult pentru urmatorul sezon este colectia Marc by Marc Jacobs.



I fell deeply in love with the deep rusty shades, the pussy bows, the hats!!! and the wide legged trousers but most of all,I loved the greens.

M-am indragostit profund de nuantele de ruginiu, de fundele de la gat, de palarii!!! si de pantalonii largi dar cel mai mult si cel mai mult, mi-au placut nuantele de verde.



EN: And to be more specific, this dress has really caught my attention. I have a soft spot for that green and the pussy bow makes it even more perfect…not to mention that it’s made out of silk.

RO: Si ca sa fiu si mai precisa, rochia aceasta mi-a atras atentia in mod deosebit. Am o slabiciune pentru verdele acela iar daca mai punem la socoteala ca are si funda, e dragoste curata. Asta ca sa nu mai spun ca e facuta in totalitate din matase.



EN: Anyway, I checked online and it’s…500$. TOO DAMN PRICEY! If you can afford it, ok, I hate you, but for me, there has to be an alternative. Check out what I found:

RO: Frumos, da, doar ca sa nu uitam de eticheta. Am verificat online si costa 500$. MULT PREA MULT! Cel putin pentru buzunarul meu…In cazul in care voi vi-o permiteti, ok, va urasc, dar pentru mine, trebuie sa caut alternative. Si iata ce am gasit…

Dorothy Perkins, 69$


Same color and buttons line. Quite similar, don’t you think?
Aceiasi culoare si linie a nasturilor. Destul de similare, nu vi se pare?

ASOS, 58$


Also available in orange and blumarine
Disponibila si in portocaliu sau albastru

Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, 208$


This one is a bit pricey but it’s actually on sale from 524$(wow, even more expensive)
Aceasta e un pic mai scumpa dar se pare ca de fapt e la reduceri de la 524$(wow, asta inseamna ca defapt a fost chiar mai scumpa decat MJ)

Debenhams, 131$


That’s an interesting detail on the shoulders
Interesant detaliul de pe umeri

Rusty zipper, 32$


And a bit of vintage, from the 1970
Si o varianta vintage din 1970

River Island, 50$


This one is my personal favourite! Ah, if only River Island would deliver outside the UK…
Personal, aceasta imi place cel mai mult! Ah, daca ar livra River Island si in afara UK…

Yes style, 80$


Last but not least, a very cute chiffon dress, also available in pink.
Nu in ultimul rand, o rochie foarte draguta din chiffon, disponibila si pe roz.

    Nice designs, colors and fabric, I'm loving this collection too.
    I'm not lusting a collection yet, because as I live in the south hemisphere I'm just thinking in the spring wich is around the corner.

    See you sweetie!

    Pussy bows are the best! I'm glad to see they're still „in” as I love wearing clothes that have them.
