Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 Review/Highlights

Marc by Marc Jacobs is personally one of the top shows I get excited to see during New York Fashion Week. Marc Jacobs seems to never disappoint, and he continues to top himself season after season after season!

This season Marc showed a fantastic 40s/70s fusion for both guys and girls for his Fall 2011 collection. It was sort of the more laid-back and effortless long-lost sister of his Marc Jacobs Spring 2011 collection (http://dressingupindaisies.onsugar.com/Marc-Jacobs-Spring-2011-RTW-Highl...). Like the previous collection, the Marc F/W 2011 collection showed amazing high-waisted pants, big floppy hats, and adorable jumpers in fun prints.

While mixed with an element of the forties, this collection fused the bold with the classic, fitted shirts with long skirts, and modest basics with a 70s sexy appeal. While flipping through these looks my mind just screams,"WANT, WANT, WANT...WANT!" This collection is so modern and so on point with what I think is going to be on trend this fall. It's so freaking cute in a sort of upscale Urban Outfitters-y way. The collection had a lot of fun and flirty pieces, but they all had FLAWLESS proportions and were worn in a very cool-girl, I'm-not-trying-too-hard way. And that goes back to the 70s-inspired attitude that Marc Jacobs did and excellent job of capturing for his show.

I couldn't talk about this collection without giving praises to the men's clothing. I LOVED the sweaters, coats, and awesome shoes that Marc dressed his boys in! Like the girls, the boys clothing was modern and urban, while still giving a stylish salute to past decades. Everything in this collection just pulled together and flowed so nicely from look to look. It was a perfect follow-up to last season, and has proved to be one of the most cohesive, modern, and wearble Marc by Marc Jacobs collections yet!

The magnificent 2011 Grammys!!!

Ah, the Grammys! Hundreds upon hundreds of people gathered last night to celebrate the best and most exciting of award ceremonies. All I can say is wow! I am completely blown away by this years Grammys. From Gaga (in an egg!!!!) to Adam Lambert and, ok fine, Justin Bieber :), the fabulously dressed celebrities flooded the red carpet. Ryan Seacrest, Giulana Rancic, and Kelly Osbourne talked fashion and also looked stunning! Lady Gaga really knows how to make an entrance! The lovely Miss Gaga hit the red carpet in an egg-like vessel carried by models. It was said she was "incubating" for three hours! She has truly topped herself. Gaga later performed her amazing new single "Born This Way" while wearing a sleek technicolor ponytail (gorgeous) and nude latex ensemble. It was an incredible night to celebrate the music industry and all the talented people within it. Some of my favorite looks:

Audrey Hepburn Quote


The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.

BABY, I WAS BORN THIS WAY!!

This morning at 6am Lady Gaga's highly anticipated new single, Born This Way, was finally released!!! You can now buy it on itunes, and it will be playing at the top of every hour on almost every pop radio station in the country! I woke up at 5am this morning to mentally prepare myself for the new work Gaga said took her two years to create. I must say, I am BLOWN AWAY!! I know I'm a die-hard little monster so my opinion may be biased, but I can assure you this a damn good dance/pop anthem. The words are SO inspiring and the beats just make you want to dance! Gaga really hit it out of the park with this one. It's by far my favorite Gaga song, and that says a lot right there! Listen to it here: http://www.ladygaga.com/bornthisway/index.htm and make sure you BUY it on itunes rather than downloading it illegally! I'm off to school now!

Urban Outfitters is getting graphic! (t-shirts, that is..)

There's nothing that is as quite as effortless and modern as an amazing graphic tee. I'll admit it: t-shirts aren't (and frankly never have been) my kind of thing. A lot of time they come across too casual or plain for my taste... But, with every generalization, there are always exceptions:).

 

And my "exceptions" may just be the incredible bunch of fun, artsy, and modern tee shirts that they're selling at Urban Outfitters at the moment. Urban Outfitters has such cute clothes that they can even make me-yes, me- fall in love with the idea of a t-shirt.

 

T-shirts like the ones above look great with jeans, shorts, skirts, and even leggings if the shirt is long enough. T-shirts are so comfy and cute, and make you look adorable without having to try. Can I say, effortless at its finest?

 

The genius that creates outside-of-the-box standout-yet-still-wearable-clothing, Marc Jacobs, even said, “I like the sort of 'nothingness' of the jeans and the T-shirt. I feel that's about as close as I can get to the future because it seems like something so old that will always be, so I feel it's a safe bet for the future.” T-shirts are modern, and always will be. Good quality Urban Outfitters ones will last you a while, and they run at about only $25-40!!! Go check them out: http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/category.jsp?popId=WOMENS&navAction=poppushpush&isSortBy=true&navCount=288&pushId=W_TOPS&id=W_APP_TEES_GRAPHIC

Totally lovin turbans...

When a girl wraps a lovely scarf around her head she instantly embodies this effortless cool-girl hipster look. I’ve seen more and more girls rocking a turban lately-everyone from celebrities to tumblr hipsters-and it’s becoming quite the trend…and I’m loving it!! Black turbans look very chic and classic, while a splash of color or a print adds a fun and more hippie-esque feel to your look! Turbans are also perfect to transform a bad hair day into an awesome hair day! :) What more could a girl want??

Style Icon: Audrey Heburn

Year after year, decade after decade, hundreds of "it girls" and "style icons" have filed in and out of magazines, media, movies, and red carpets. Many of these girls own the look that everyone of their time tried to recreate for themselves, but times change and trends fade, and with that, so do “It girls”. But sometimes, certain people can surpass the chains of time and trends and stay a style icon for decades. No matter where the fashion world goes, girls like this will ALWAYS be in style and ALWAYS be looked to for inspiration.

When I think of style icons, the first person that always comes to my mind is Audrey Hepburn. She was such an inspiring woman that my parents even named me after her! There was something so graceful and elegant about Audrey and the way she presented herself. She was pure class, and classy will NEVER go out of style. Classy is timeless.

I find it so easy to modernize the Hepburn look and add little touches of her charm to your day to day look. Big, huge sunnies one day, and ballet flats the next. Straight cigarette pants for a day on the town, and an LBD for the night. Audrey even said herself, “My look is attainable. Woman can look like Audrey Hepburn by buying the large sunglasses and the little sleeveless dresses.”

Audrey Hepburn is the girl that introduced the LBD to the mainstream. She was the first to rock the pieces of clothing that most girls of today’s time could never live without. Although during her time, she was a risk taker. She dressed completely how she wanted to and frankly, didn’t give a damn about what anyone else thought. Isn’t it so funny how  style once so revolutionary during her time, is now, and forever will be, a timeless look that designers will look to for inspiration for all the years to come? Audrey Hepburn is a beautiful style icon that will continue to be etched into fashionista’s minds for decades to come.

About me

I started Dressing Up In Daisies about four years ago for the purpose of sharing my opinions, ideas, and personal style on the internet, rather than keeping them bottled up in my head. In my first post on Dressing Up In Daisies, my then thirteen year old self said, “Fashion is about taking risks, and dressing up for yourself, and no one else. Ever since I was two years old, my favorite game to play has been dress up...and it still is. The amazing thing about this game is that you get to play it every single morning, so why not have some fun with it? Wear some massive heels, opt for the leopard coat, throw some daisies in your hair. Whatever your mood is that day.”

This statement is something I continue to stand by, and will for the rest of my existence. I believe it is important to show the world that fashion should celebrate the beauty in risk-taking and oddities, which vastly transcends the limitations of "trends" and other rules often imposed by members of the fashion industry.

I use my blog to connect to the world of fashion that I know I’ll be a part of one day. Feel free to leave comments with feedback, or click the "contact" link above to email me.
