Recessionista: Marc'd Down

There's nothing like a little Marc Jacobs fashion news to get me excited. And this news involves a fabulous capsule collection on scarves, leggings, jersey blazers and denim under the Marc by Marc Jacobs umbrella all to retail for under $200!

The thirteen piece collection (available online at Saks.com and Bloomingdales.com) comes in a colorful and whimsical assortment of prints including Marc Doodle, Wildflower, Charlotte Stripe, and Miss Marc 'Don't Fret My Pet.'

We love Marc Jacobs over here at Us....well, frankly, who doesn't?! He works with the most amazing and finest fabrics in the land. There are so many budget restrictions we all have when it comes to affording those lovely bags, coats and dresses, but with this new collection, you can own a piece of the name brand for a fraction of the cost.

The limited edition collection will be available in Marc by Marc Jacobs stores and online at Saks.com and Bloomingdales.com starting August 1.
