Would You Wear This?

Apparently outside of half tops (have you started those sit-ups yet?) for new Spring ’09 fashion, we are also returning to jumpsuits as the look of the moment. You can thank my boyfriend, Marc Jacobs. And can I tell you a secret? A friend and I were discussing what things have “jumped the shark” and I’m afraid that MJ may be on his way. Why?
.
I met Jbakes at a dive bar in the Village last week and I was rocking one of my MJ bags with a necklace…by MJ (We’ve discussed this, I’m an MJ whore) and the bouncer and a girl smoking a cigarette out front asked if I worked at the MJ store. Weird? Then, even weirder, they were each crestfallen when I told them I was just a fan of his work. “I thought I was going to have a friend in Marc Jacobs,” quipped the bouncer. “I love Marc Jacobs,” said smoking girl, as she tilted her head to the side wistfully. Neither were very fashionable. Hm…thoughts?

Thanks CS

    Wow- fashion trends do come full circle! Which means I can go steel one of my grandma’s nylon/spandex (on size fits most) belts with the bejeweled buckle so when I do purchase a jumpsuit (cause YES I’D WEAR THEM =)…I’ll come correct (just so long as they leave them darn shoulder pads out of the equation!)
    But jumpsuits aren’t for everyone-and maybe not even- cause having all legs and no torso practically- jumpsuits often have waistlines that end in the middl of my rear instead of my actuall waist- I’m keeping my fingers crossed that that are some out there for us long legged creatures =
