& look what came with the Marc by Marc Jacobs catalog:
Too cool! While it's just a plain canvas bag, it cost the approximation of $15 USD. It seemed to me a fair price to pay for a very cute tote bag, let alone a Marc by Marc Jacobs one. & the Fall/Winter collection catalog? That was my freebie since I bought the whole thing so I could call that bag mine! It was a deal. I'm thinking of going back and buying a bunch as Christmas gifts for my fashionista girlfriends.
On another note, I had a birthday party for The Outfit of the Day's little girl. Now both girls being very chic (Mommy and Baby), I felt it necessary to step up the wardrobe choice a bit while still keeping a fleeting-summer-it's-almost-over-let's-keep-the-feeling-going vibe. So I chose:
The J.Crew Linen-Silk Tussah Rosette Dress
Please pretend you DON'T see the strange yellow string in front of me. It's not even there.
I thought it to be pretty cute and appropriate. The linen texture complied with my summer vibe and the shape made feel a little more dressed up and ready for a birthday party. I wore it with J.Crew capri gold leather sandals, again, keeping the beach vibe. Since TOOTD lives down the street from the beach. I took a papaya colored Jackie cardi as a cover up.
