Spring 2008 Fashion Week: Marc Jacobs
Here's what I know about last night's Marc Jacobs show:
-It started 2 hours late.
-It went backwards, beginning with Marc's bow and ending with look #1.
-It featured a video installation from artist Charles Atlas.
-Mischa Barton, Heath Ledger, Courtney Love, and Victoria Beckham were there.

The rest, I'm still working through. Whether a commentary on "what is sexy," a surreal exploration of deshabille, a nod to Grey Gardens, or a childlike treatise on playing dress-up, I do not know. The clothes were all kinds of messy, with undergarments (some actual, some faux) peeking out. It didn't seem particularly wearable, at least as styled. It was, in other words, the total opposite of fall's polished, pulled-together look.

So what can we take away from this? Sheer is an emerging trend for spring, as are the pullover blouse and the high waist, all of which were prominent in this show. There were some great bags and shoes also. But as for the big picture, it might be days, or weeks, before that's clear.

Your thoughts?

It's so nice for me to have found this blogg of yours, it's so interesting. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise. My blogg is also so cool! Don't think for a minute that my invitation is spam and I'm a spammer. I'm only searching for a public that may like or love what I POETRY write, among other types of Artistic Texts.

Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make is a matter of more audiences for my own blogg. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of bloggs, all the essential causes that bring us all together by visiting and loving one another. However...

Some feel invaded and ofended that I present myself this way in their blogs and rudely insult me back or post a mockery post on me.
Some think I'm playing the smart guy who wants to profit, in my miserable and ridiculous gain with Adsense (go figure!), from and with others curiosity and benevolence.
Some simply ignore me.
Some aknowledge that It's most important we all take notion that there's milions of us bloguing arownd the world and thus vital any kind of awareness such as I believe this my self-introduction card and insert apeal brings in.

May you be one of those open and friendly spirits.

You must not feel obliged to come and visit me. An invitation is not an intimation. Also know that if you FOR A SECOND click on one of my ads I'm promised to earn a couple of cents for that: I would feel happy and rewarded (because I realy unemployedly need it!!!) if you did click it FOR A SECOND, but once again you're totaly free to do what ever you want. I, for instance, choose immediatly to click on one of your ads, in case you have them. To do so or not, that's the whole beauty of it all, however, blogocitizens must unite also by clicking-helping eachother when we know cybermegacorporations profit from our own selfishness regarding to that simple click.

About this I must say, by my own experience, that no one realy cares (maybe a few) about this apeal I make, still I believe in my Work and Dreams and thus I'll keep on apealing and searching so strong is my will.

I think it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers! Don't see language as an obstacle but as a challenge (though you can use the translater BabelFish at the bottom of my page!) and think for a minute if I and the rest of the world are not expecting something like a broad cumplicity. Remenber that pictures talk also. Open your heart and come along!!!!!
