I want my Marc by Marc Jacobs

Watching the Marc by Marc Jacobs show reminded me of my favorite part of the 1980s -- the early years of MTV, the punky chic of a young Madonna and Cyndi Lauper.

While other designers were going 1940s retro for fall 2008, Jacobs went a different way, sending out oversized houndstooth prints, graphic skirts reminscent of Keith Haring, bright colors and tweeds.

And of course the accessories were stellar -- I am already obsessed with the oversized pink leather bag (above). The bags were big, the ankle boots bright, in hues such as "ocean" "fire" and of course, pink.
