Marc by Marc Jacobs - Henry Gold Watch, $200.

                                          Marc Jacobs Henry Gold Watch

I visited the Marc by Marc Jacobs store on Newbury Street in Boston today — 30% off all shoes, so go if you haven’t already! Unfortunately, they were out of my size in every shoe I wanted, but I didn’t walk out empty-handed! I got a mauve canvas (prepare yourselves) Jacobs by Marc Jacobs for Marc by Marc Jacobs in collaboration with Marc Jacobs for Marc by Marc Jacobs tote. Oh Marc, you are too funny. Loves. I also got a key charm necklace and a leopard-print keychain that is now on my taupe Totally Turnlock Helena tote. The color scheme matches perfectly and I am utterly pleased.

Next up on my list is the watch pictured above. It is even more beautiful in person and is absolutely a must-have! Every season there is always one watch that stands out to me from the MBMJ collection, and this one blows them all out of the water. This watch is reason #48327592384 why an unpaid internship is not sufficient. Anybody hiring?

For more Marc Jacobs love, come back to House of Alice at 10 a.m. EST tomorrow!

MUST. HAVE. Forget the Marc by Marc Jacobs watch. Actually, don’t forget it, because that’s a must have as well. But sorry Marc, this Mulberry bag has definitely bumped your watch to number two on my list of desirables. 

The timeless design of the bag, similar to that of the Hermès ‘Birkin’ (named after Jane Birkin) bag, was inspired by UK television personality Alexa Chung’s rugged but feminine style. First seen on the runways during the Spring 2010 season, the Alexa bag doesn’t seem to be going anywhere — so though not all of us are lucky enough to have bags named after ourselves, we can still indulge in it-bags and know they’ll stand the test of time. Pictured is the bag in ‘Conker Soft Buffalo,’ but I’m loving the ‘Pumpkin Large Grain Nappa’ as well…thoughts?

Look what came to me at work! Best surprise ever from a very special person :) Dream watch fulfilled (so who’s getting me my dream bag?)…and yes, that is the Bachelorette (finale!) playing in the background.

wallet searching.

As a college student, the simpler my life is, the happier I am — I’m all about convenience, especially when it comes to the cavernous Longchamp bag I throw my books, laptop, dance clothing, etc., in before running to class every morning. I won’t go into the never-ending conversation about the lack of compartments (or a zipper to the pocket!) in your typical Longchamp tote — but even when I’m using a nylon Marc by Marc Jacobs cosmetic bag as my pencil case, it’s impossible to find anything in that bag of mine.

So for the past several years, I’ve been using coin purses as a wallet; one with my keys attached, so I can fit everything I need (hello, credit card! hello, cash! hello, keys!) into the palm of my hand.


         Naturally, the one I’m using states, “Shoe Fund.” Unnaturally, it’s pink.

It’s time, though, for a change: a real, (grown-up?!) wallet. Here are the ones I’m loving, and please, let me know which one is your fave — or suggest new ones!

See by Chloe Carmen Wallet, $185. I love the color and texture of this wallet, and gold hardware looks great on accessories of all colors. The three bags I carry on a regular basis are grey-blue, black and natural — so this one would be a fantastic fit.

Tory Burch ‘Robinson’ Continental Wallet, $225. Look closely — the cross-hatch leather is to die for. Zip-around wallets keep everything where it needs to be, especially when my belongings are being thrown back and forth in my tote. Black (with gold hardware!) matches every color, and hides wear and tear better than other colors do.

Marc Jacobs Lindy Deluxe Zip Around Wallet, $450. The color scheme. The gold hardware. The quilted leather. The bow. And it’s a zip-around wallet! On top of all that, anybody who knows me knows I can’t get enough of Marc Jacobs. But with such particular embellishments, will this wallet really stand the test of time?
