The Marc of Jacobs-NYFW-F/W 2014

Dressed to Thrill

Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2014 Runway Show-Tuesday February 11, 2014

Pretty in Pink-streetzblog

The Pre-Show Wait. Pretty in Pink. Rock Star Style

Last year at this time of year, I dreamed of being invited to New York Fashion Week to blog about the Styles. This year, of course I still want to dream of going there for Fashion Week. Although, since I’ve learned so much over the last year digitally, I was very close to being there without actually being there. I was able to watch the Marc by Jacobs Runway show live on my iPhone and capture photos as if I was there. Best parts about this, is I didn’t need to wear a warm coat or battle it out with all the other bloggers  for a good camera shot.  Thank You Marc Jacobs for playing the Fashion Show Live, I had a great time watching the show, listening to the music and taking pictures of all the  colorful new  clothes.

The Pre-Show

MJ Cameras-streetzblog

Look at all the People with cameras!!!

Sooo many people with cameras. WOW! The Gallery you’re about to see is all the Pre Show hype. See the girls looking at their phones? Some people socializing and probably the best two pictures-Marc Jacobs himself! in the crowd talking to the fans and the press. I had a pretty nice vantage point to get him in the pre show pictorial-Sweet!

The Show-Part One

It was pretty interesting to watch what happens at a NY Fashion Week show prior to the Show.  As you noticed, some people socialized, others checked out their phones, and I did notice some nice black bags that were probably filled with some nice Swag. Next up will be a TON of pictures of the actual Fashion Show. The Show goes from start to finish. I took a lot of nice pictures of the new bags, tried to get some nice shoe shots and of course nabbed a bunch of the stylish colorful new out fits for F/W 2014.  Some stripes, some plaids, some bright colors, some daring handkerchiefs over the mouth, and I do notice a bit of a “Divergent” vibe with the pigtails and look of the un smiling models. Very interesting. I also notice a lot of grey..maybe getting ready for the Big movie “Fifty Shades of Grey?” I hope you enjoy the Show, it took me a pretty long time to put it together. A lot of uploading and downloading.  I’m sure there must be an easier way to do it, maybe by the next Fashion Week, I’ll figure it out. For now, ENJOY the show!

The Show-Part Two

The next portion we will see some more color and the handkerchiefs I mentioned earlier, along with some more scowling youthful faces and some more pigtails. Once Again, bringing us that post apocalyptic  look of oppression, style, money and women’s power.   I hope you enjoy Part Two of the Marc by Marc Jacobs F/W 2014 Runway Fashion show. Personally I liked part two the best. The fierce looks, The Hunger Games vs Divergent theme, the red pigtails, the fantastic colors along with more shades of grey.

The Finale, The designers and the crowd goes back out to the Snow

Here we see the full line-up of the designs, the designers and finally a few pictures of how very quickly everyone gets up to go.  Me personally, I would probably sit and savor the moment. But, maybe everyone is on their way to the next show?  Here’s the finale.

You can purchase Marc by Marc Jacobs clothes, shoes, and accessories here. And my parting shot, is one of my favorite pairs of Kicks that I own. Marc Jacobs Brown/Gold Patent Leather kicks from 2013.

@The Maison Bentley Blog Paaardy!

Ships Ahoy!

It’s about Midnight here in Honolulu on Sunday October 27th 2013 and I’m presently in London via the internet at the Maison Bentley Blog Paaardy!  I stopped by the party earlier today, but when I saw the fancy yacht that the party is being held on I had to run back home to change out of my T-shirt, Shorts and Flip-Flops or as we call them in Hawaii-Slippers.

I Changed into my newest kicks from Marc Jacobs, a Tommy Bahama shirt to match them, my Harajuku T shirt to wear underneath, my Dolce & Gabbana plaid pants from Barney’s NYC and my streetzblog x CityStars Snapback.

I want to get back to the party quickly, thus I have everything I’m wearing in the capsule collection as seen above. (It’s much quicker to upload a capsule collection then one by one) Oh, and since it is past Midnight here, the Drink Departments are closed, Thus my bevie of choice for the evening is the Bob Marley Mellow Mood Sweet Tea as also seen above.

Thanks again to the Maison Bentley Style Blog for having this wonderful party.  What a fun and Exciting idea. Cheers and Aloha from Makiki, Hawaii to London, England and to everyone else from around the World.

Who hid the Music?

Marc By Marc Jacobs #NYFW-Fashion Show S/S 2014

Where’s the missing WWPRD Song?

I was able to watch this show LIVE on my iPhone. That’s probably my most favorite thing to do during Fashion weeks in NYC. The Good folks over at Marc Jacobs know me from somewhere or I signed up for their mailing list sometime. Either way, it’s so cool how I get to watch the shows LIVE just like Anna Wintour et Al.

This Show was pretty good.  I liked the 50’s inspired Khakis that had the 2013 Tapered at the ankle vibe to them.  And sporty Chic is supposed to be the trend. So Good show. I couldn’t go back to wearing a Satin Jacket, I had one of these in Royal Blue in the late 70’s early 80’s that I wore till it practically fell apart. On me now, I have no idea what vibe it would portray?  Hipster-Chic? I kind of think not. Probably, Hey that guy hasn’t been shopping in a while vibe. But I bet the satin jackets will look good on Early to Mid 20’s female and male model types.Funny part about this show, is I really liked the song they played during it.  It was called What would PR do? or WWPRD? At first I thought it was a PR tune, but couldn’t find it there, I did find a YouTube video of  Jeffrey Lewis doing an acoustic  type version of it. It doesn’t quite have the punch as the song they had on live during the fashion show. At least you can kind of feel a bit of the vibe of what was playing in the background of the video below.  It sure is a hard tune to find (at least on 9/13/13). I suspect it was an exclusive for Marc.

Here’s the Marc By Marc Jacobs S/S Fashion Show. Notice the music is missing. Check out Beatport to hear it!

Here is the acoustic version of the song by Jeffrey Lewis. It is really missing the full  punch and pizzaz of the song I heard, not as punk rock sounding either. But at least you can kind of feel the vibe on the video above with no sound and check out the words, they are pretty smack dab on Today’s feeling about being in the world in September 2013. Some phrases are a bit more negative then I tend to like, but others are very “in the moment” about all Jeffrey’s missing is all this mobile phone craziness going on. Now everyone in my building where I work are staring at their phones in the elevators. AND most of the phones don’t get service in the Elevators. Just more people being Anti-Social is what I call it!

It’s not on SoundCloud, it’s not on iTunes, I did find it here at Rough Trade.  I don’t know if the song is the full-fledged tune with the production values and full band or if it’s similar to the acoustic version. Update:  Found it on Beatport and Yes, it is the song they played during the fashion show and you can listen to it or buy it here. Then watch the fashion show again and get the full affect of the Vibe of the show!

If you know other places  we can get the tune let us know in the comments section. Or if you were at the Marc by Marc Jacobs fashion show, Let us know what you thought of the tune or the clothes?  See you on the Streetz of Waikiki September thru Mid December then NYC and Chicago in December.

Before I go to sleep so I can wake up early to check out the Phillip Lim for Target collab in the morning, here’s the Marc Jacobs Fashion show that has all of the cool dark blues and black backdrop ambiance, and the models with the fun choppy hair. This Dark Blue and Black warehouse is how I would like my home to look,  wouldn’t that be fun! If you were at this show let us know how it was in the comments section. This to me looks like a really well done show-almost like seeing a Play in Times Square, NYC.

Cyber-Monday-2012 #cybermonday

Streetzblog.com official logo-streetzblog.com

This is good and bad, I misplaced both my Credit Card and my Debit card and my driver’s license lat Saturday night.  Good of course because now I really can’t shop on Cyber Monday and bad of course because i wasted 2 hours tearing up my house and car Sunday night looking for the 3 cards. I’m sure they will all three show up sometime around 11P on Monday Night-just after Cyber-Monday is officially over.

it’s ok, I’m still on a “no buying clothes and shoes with credit card ban until December 18 and a no buying kicks probation with any type of money or CC until the same date”.

Here’s some of the Great Deals I spotted on my email and twitter feeds, IF I could buy today. Since it’s so early or so late at night right now 3:24AM, I’m not bothering with many links or pictures, I’m sure for one day and for such good deals you can just google them. Happy Cyber Monday Shopping!  *Note:  You may need to sign up for some of these newsletters and alerts yourself, or they just may work with the codes I listed.  At least the info is all listed below and 4 for 40 percent off a little work is probably worth it!

  1. Adidas Cyber Monday Special: Spend $75 get $10, Spend $100 get $20 and my favorite is spend $150 and get $40! Code is holiday. (Email offer)
  2. @MarcJacobs:  40% off Fall, free shipping and GWP.  Now even without a CC or Debit Card handy, I have tried this sale twice but don’t get it. Everytime I click on something I like it seems to be full price. Even when I put it in my basket it comes to full price. They tweeted me, so I tweeted them back asking what was up?  Been about 20 minutes and I still dont know. I tried the same  thing on Thanksgiving.  I don’t get how this 40% off sale works, unless their isnt anything for Guys available at 40% off, maybe all the good stuff is the winter line not the Fall?  If you know, LMK. Thanks (Twitter Feed)
  3. Eastbay:  Get $25 off orders of $99 or more.  Use promo code EMEB2V69 at Check-Out. (Email offer)
  4. SWELL:  Get 25% off all day long on Cyber-Monday. Use promo code:RGIFT2U  (Email Offer)
  5. Hackney’s Restaurant:  Purchase $100 in gift cards and receive a $20 GC for yourself. Would be fun to use when the Bears play and they have that 50% off hamburger deal.  BTW their best burgers are the blue cheese burgers on dark Rye-YUM! (Email Offer)
  6. Tobi: 40% off of entire site.  This is where I found some pretty trendy pants I read about in Details magazine. Many HOT designers on this site. But so far this morning all I can find are the Women’s clothes and I can’t remember my password to get on the site. oh well, if you want to work hard enough to get this deal, I think it is worth it-the designers are actually pretty awesome and typically big time Quality items. You may need to sign up quickly for their news letter.  Promo code is:GOBBLE40 (Email Offer)
  7. Amazon:  They just say to keep clicking until I find something for a good price. That’s ok, I want speed and info quickly now so I can go back to sleep. LOL (Email offer)
  8. Barney’s:  Has 11 pretty happening designers listed including Theory, Vince and Michael Kors.  They say “shop the sale and get free 2 day shipping” (Email offer) I think its much more fun to shop in person at Barney’s, real similar to a Nordstrom shopping experience.  Lots of great fun people to help you!
  9. Case-Mate: Save Up to 50% off site wide.This is actually pretty fun. I had a choice of 4 windows filled with snow, I got to choose 1 and see my deal. Then I clicked on another button and received my own personal “active” promo code. I did get my own personal active promo code. but the snow thing didn’t work too well, the iPhone just thought about it and it tried to access something but nothing happened. so I called them and no one answered. Cute and fun idea, but not exactly user-friendly. oh well maybe it will work for you. I’d actually recommend shopping on your laptop or iPad and not the iPhone, second time tonight I couldn’t access things quickly. (Email Offer)
  10. @Megan_Massacre:  Get 20% off everything on her webstore all day today. She’s from the TV show with Ami where they do the live tattoo’s in Soho.  Not sure what she is selling, I’d buy a tat from her, not sure if I need anything else, from a tattoo artist. (Twitter Feed)
  11. Brooklyn Nets: Spend $100 and get $25 back, Now that is a deal! Promo Code: CMDEAL  (Email Offer)

Hey and since I was having too much fun during Black Friday Weekend, I didn’t have a chance to write up the deals.  But the best thing I saw was over at the Volcom store in Haleiwa. They had $23 Shirts with the Volcom logo and the Hawaiian Islands  on them for 2 for $20. That’s 4 for $40 instead of 2 for $46!!! I bought 4. Perfect Christmas Gifts, LOL-I already gave 3 away and wore the other yesterday!.  Anyways if you live on Oahu, I’d head over there or call them and see if the deal is still on.  It was still on Saturday Afternoon and that was not Black Friday it was Saturday.  OK, going back to sleep now, gotta’ work in the morning. Lates!

Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton-Spring 2012

The Sixties Vibe Is Rockin’ The Runway in Paris!

Personally I don’t carry a handbag, but if I did, I would pick Louis Vuitton as my brand of Choice. I doubt you can ever go wrong with the classic dark brown and light brown logo’d version. And I totally loved the Graffiti versions a few years back. And in the art and stye world-The “Pop Art” Swinging 60’s Vibe is one of my favorites of all time.  Thus, I couldn’t resist showing you what’s in store for Louis Vuitton Spring 2013, courtesy of designer Marc Jacobs via the Paris Runways and WWD.
