Inspired: Marc by Marc Jacobs vs. the 80's.
It's no secret that Mr. Jacobs is the master mind behind making my elementary school wardrobe for big people. Complete with rainbows and unicorns, piano key's, puff sleeved blouses and all the darling little rompers mom used to dress you in. Yes, being a child of the 80's, it seems that every collection, has at least a piece (or two or three) that brings back memories from the playground and waiting in line for hot lunch. And I would be lying if I said I hated it. Granted I was too young to be rocking over the knee zipper boots back in the day, Mr. Jacobs has re-introduced this trashy-in-an-awesome-way boot. Now that I am "old enough" to parade around like a bad-ass in these boots, I am unfortunately too poor. At $800 a pair, I can only hope to come across the original vintage version in my size for a fraction of the price.

*Hannah over at Marmalade in NYC just let me know she has a pair of the above beauties in a size 8.5, so if that's your size better get over to her shop!
**Also, blog reader, WendyB, let me know that the original's where by Anne Klein. I have only come across the "Made in China" cheapy version. So there you have it!
