Decision Decisions: Marc by MJ Top

Its officially presale season! Well Sak's on presale anyway, so I'm sure the rest can't be far behind.

Upon hearing of this wonderful news, I headed straight for the Marc by Marc Jacob's section in search for this blue shirt which I've had my eye on since Spring Break when I tried it on with Harrod's Girl. Indeed it was on 40% off sale, so including tax its $117 (it used to be $178). Its also on sale on shopbop for $124. It looks lovely on my complexion, the color is just sooo vibrant. However, I'm having my doubts about spending $117 on a silk spaghetti strap shirt. The pattern is soo distinctive too, I'm concerned whether it'll stand the test of fashion.

Although Rory did wear the dress version of it on the finale show this week, and she looked fabulous.And isn't it interesting that the coloring of the model looks so much like Rory's? Maybe this dress just works best on brunettes with long curly hair!

So here's my dilema. What do you, dear readers, think?

I like the dress better than the tank.

40% off IS a good deal...and its silk, won't go out of style and is MMJ, so all in all - I think its a nice purchase that you won't likely regret! Rory did look great in that dress, they sure do put the actresses on that show in a lot of MJ - I think Loralei (sp?) still carries around an MJ bag, no?

Hey there, I like both the top and the dress, but quite frankly I'd go for the dress, because you can wear it in summer OR put a nicely cut white long sleeved top under it in winter and wear it with stockings and boots. You can't lose with a dress!

Don't buy it!!!! I bought an Ana Sui dress 2 spring seasons ago. It's got this distinct pinstripe print accented with black embroidery. Only to find out three months later that a chinese factory duplicated it!!!! Eventually everyone else wore almost the same thing. At less than half the price!!!!

I'd go for the top as generally tops are always more versatile than dresses and easier to incorportate into each season's new wardrobes, e.g. layering, etc. The pattern is distinctive but not distinctive enough to scream " this was the same top i wore during SS06!" next year. The price...well, I suppose you would expect to pay that much for MJ and it's on sale too.I'd say go for it!

It has a wonderfully vintage feel to it. If vintage can stand the test of fashion I guess it would. It is absolutely gorgeous. Do you love it on you though? It looks like it may not be too flattering to some body types.

The top is going to be a lot more versatile... than the dress. And the dress doesnt look that cute

definitely the dress.
btw, model has yellow toned complexion, rory has pink undertones, so they do not have same complexion. also, model has bronze-y hair, rory's hair is chocolate.

I love both those garments; ESPECIALLY the dress. But my pragmatic side rarely lets me buy trendy things if they're on sale at the end of a season, because that's a sign that they'll look outdated in a short while.

The dress for sure! Dress has a nice bit of retro feel to it (at least on Rory) but the top doesn't so I think the dress will last longer. But you can't go wrong with anything MJ. i still wear silk tops from MJ I bought 3 seasons ago and it still looks awesome.

i love dresses, but thats just me...again, i don´t think it is soooo fabulous, but if you love it and you can afford it, go for it! while you´re young, stylish and have a nice body to show your colthes around...

Don't buy the top. Too expensive and you know it'll end up being one of the many fancy tops a girl gets because we think they're pretty and we try to justify by saying we'll wear it at dressier moments but won't very much at all. Possibly because we have too many such tops and the full rotation means each one really doesn't get worn enough for its value.

I just saw that episode this week :) I immediately figured it was MJ with the cute floral print. Rory looks great in it!

I say get the shirt. $100 and some is not too much considering it is silk (and Marc). In later seasons, since it is a bold floral, just layer under a plain cardigan or blazer. Simple. And I think it's really versatile between night and day too.

There are many celebrities wear Bentley GT such as comedian Dave Chapelle, “American Idol” TV host Simon Cowell, musician Miles Davis, and actors Tommy Lee Jones and John Lovitz. The rapper Ludacris goes for the Breitling Super Avenger etc wear Breitling Avenger . You can trust Bentley 6.75 . Since famous person are wearing Navitimer World , what are you waiting for?


The best solution to MANNIX disc repair is to polish away some of the plastic buffer that surrounds the scratch. You have a good amount of buffer there and polishing some of MANNIX DVD away won't really do any harm (if you do it evenly). This method makes deep scratches appear shallow so the MANNIX DVD COLLECTION eye can see the data again because you have eliminated the obstacle.


Besides that, these Hogan all come along with an additional strap across the side of the Hogan scarpe uomo . This is to further enhance the outlook appearance as well as the design of the shoes and to make Hogan uomo more stand out among other types of shoes. Furthermore, these side straps are all printed with the words Hogan scarpe donna to portray the brand name and to prove the authentic of the shoes.
