Because You're Ugly: The Look for Less. Kinda.
The lady-like runways of Marc by Marc Jacobs' Spring 2008 show are finally showing up in your local mall—not in the department stores, but in stores often criticized (and praised) for designer knock-offs.
If you liked the stewardess/Biba-like frocks in the MbMJ collection, then you'll be glad to know that ever reliable Forever 21 has stepped up with their take on the $338 Indigo Sweater Dress, with its notable contrast denim trim and patch pockets. The $29.80 tunic, pictured left, isn't any where as cute as the original, but it's a nice attempt: it still features that cutesy yellow-and-denim color scheme, but has replaced the crew-neck with a denim collar. I hate the almost comical big yellow buttons, but those can be easily replaced for ones similar to the original.
