MARC JACOBS BECOMES CREATIVE DIRECTOR OF DIET COKE – RELEASES CRINGEWORTHY ADVERTISMENT

I just can’t at the above….

If you haven’t already heard, Marc Jacobs was named the new Creative Director of Diet Coke, and in true attention seeking style, the designer has released what I believe is by far the WORST Diet Coke commercial ever.

Sure it was just a way of Marc Jacobs introducing himself as being the new Creative Director, (Jean Paul Gaultier and Karl Lagerfeld having taken the helm previously) and there’s no denying he looks great for 49, but it was unnecessary, unrealistic and just plain corny.

If you follow me on twitter, then you may know of my never ending Apple iPhone 4S case drama. Firstly, I wanted a Marc By Marc Jacobs Logo Cartridge case, secondly, It had to be Fresh Green, Red or Crow Grey, and thirdly as I was TRYING not to spend so much money before I found a permanent job, I honestly didn’t want to spend £35 on one!

SALE PICKS – THE MARC JACOBS GOLD HI TOP SNEAKER FROM OKI-NI

As you know I love a hi-top with a lil’metallic detail, and sometimes I like a hi-top that’s literally been dipped in molten gold!

These beautiful Marc Jacobs Gold Hi-Top Sneakers from the Oki-Ni sale are right up my statement shoe street. They may be glimmering and gold, but gaudy they are not, and that’s largely thanks to the stark clean contrast provided by the thick white rubber soles and laces. Plus you can never have too much MJ…just ask my wardrobe!

The more I look at them, the more I fall in love…

SALE PICKS – THE MARC BY MARC JACOBS CHOCOLATE LEATHER WERDIE TOTE

It wouldn’t be one of my “Sale Picks” posts if I didn’t include a man bag and I think I’ve found a great one here at an equally great price!

This Marc By Marc Jacobs Chocolate Leather Werdie Tote from the My Wardrobe sale is sophisticated, sleek and rather classic in appearance. It’s the perfect no fuss man bag. I actually adored the Tan version as that’s one colour I need to own, (I already have a chocolate brown leather shopper), but hey, another one wouldn’t hurt would it?

Who knows, If I get some early birthday deposits into my account, I may just snap it up!

Available for £350 £175 online from My Wardrobe.

THE “TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL” RUCKSACK BY MARC JACOBS

The last time I wore a rucksack was during my transition from secondary school to college. After that, the then popular trend of the messenger bag took over, followed more recently by the hold-all/tote phase…and I haven’t gone back since.

With its re-ammergence as a trendy accessory, I’ve failed re-ignight any spark I may have “carried” for the lowly rucksack, that is until I began seeing more luxe equivalent’s around, such as this beautiful Navy textured leather rucksack by Marc Jacobs on Yoox.com.
