marc my words

people tend to have misconceptions when it comes to designer shops. a fear of the unknown (and exorbitant pricing) keeps many a good shopper out of a prada or a versace. well fear not high fashion lovers! I am here to report from the front lines that marc by marc jacobs on melrose has the freshest affordable trinkets this side of target. I picked up a quilted oversized bag, a gold wallet, flips and a tee for S. and another carry-all bag for me, while spending close to $100!?!? if you're not in the la. area hit up their website or check out eBay. rumour has it, someone is selling some of the cheap stuff there. speaking of rumers, if you are in the la. area, rumer willis is a shopgirl at the marc by marc joint. perhaps an ashton sighting is in your fashion future?

and the award goes to...

the mtv movie awards are happening this week which means its swag time in l.a. and no one does it bettter than the doe-eyed miss kari feinstein. this chick keeps it cool and calm and together depsite the chaos that surrounds the annual gift-giving event. yesterday me and S. caught the valet truck up with my girl claudia and proceeded to take shamelessly the goods that the gifters had to offer. the style lounge was held in a private residence up top bev hills where room upon room was filled to the brim with folks ready to dress the musique elite for the awards show. reebok was stocked on sneakers and were happy to give out pumps for the boys and old school neon joints for the girls. they win the award for most giving and prepared. I loved the creative and sweet prints done up by papier, whimsy and was happy to stock up some very cool new wrapping papers and note cards. check em. cheap and cute. they get the most likely to succeed award. coming in best overall performance of a brand is marnie rocks. this chick from texass was working the room and every guest like they were her best friend. funny enough, she had a genuine enthusiasm about her interactions and goods and I was happy to unload her of a gigantic black cocktail ring and gold python-skinned waist bag (perfect for our new york trip next week, despite S.'s hate of the look). it was a great event with some really fun celeb sightings like elisha cuthbert and miss perez hilton (me missed out on jessica alba. poopers). again, major propers to kari feinstein for the tremendous work she does putting the event together.
