Marc Jacobs’ New iPhone Case Charges Itself
We live in connected times, my friends, and for the gal on the go, your smart phone is the modern day equivalent of a life saver. From catching up on this month's book club read to answering emails while grabbing a quick lunch, the last thing you need if a low battery. Luckily, Marc by Marc Jacobs has teamed up with BoostCase to help you alleviate a low charge with one of your favorite brands. The quirky cases were designed by Hattie Stewart, an artist who teamed up with Marc on his resort 2014 accessories (which you can see here), including the drawings of Marc's favorite Boston terrier Olive in ring and necklace form. The Marc by Marc Jacobs Rue iPhone 5 Boostcase ($98) itself is a simple snap-on, but includes an extra 24-hour charge for those days that you just can't get near an outlet, but still very much need your mobile connectivity. The case fits iPhone 5 and 5s, and there is an iPad version as well. Each BoostCase includes a micro USB cord so that when you finally do have a little downtime, you can charge your device, case and all.

Marc Jacobs Is Semi-Obsessed With Polka Dots: Shop His Spring Line Now
We're starting to think Marc Jacobs has a little bit of a polka dot fetish going on: First he announced Louis Vuitton's upcoming collabo with Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama (famous for her polka dot installations), and now his spring Marc by Marc Jacobs collection has us seeing spots. (more…)
Marc Jacobs Is Knocking Off The Ray-Ban Knockoffs (For $110 A Pop)
Marc by Marc Jacobs' $110 version is on the right. The 80 cent bulk version is on the left. But we hardly see a difference. It used to be that American Apparel was the patron saint of sorority-themed clothing, but now, it looks like Marc Jacobs is trying to win over the Kappa crowd. The Marc by Marc Jacobs Flat Top Sunglasses ($110) are essentially glorified 80's neon-arm wayfarers that have since become staples at college homecoming games, sorority bid days, and even hipster weddings. But apparently MJ decided they also have a place on Shopbop. For a roughly 1,000% markup. I can't decide if this is mildly funny or just plain abysmal.
Marc By Marc Jacobs’ New Sandals Look Dangerously Similar To Tevas
Remember that terrifying day last year when Teva (yes, the velcro sandal company your hippie dad wears hiking) announced their foray into the women's stiletto market? And while this isn't exactly the second coming of the Teva high heels, it's not far from it. Apparently Marc Jacobs took a cue from the outdoorsy brand with his new Marc by Marc Jacobs striped wedge sandals, which retail for $280 on Net-A-Porter. I know Marc by Marc is essentially considered "sportswear," but this is pushing it. (more…)

In further Marc Jacobs news, WWD reported today that Jacobs could be headed to Dior, and Phoebe Phillo, formerly of Celine, could take over his post at Louis Vuitton. (more…)

Peplum Wedding Dresses: Why Wear Just 1 Skirt When You Can Have 2?
A ruffle here and there can do wonders for a bride's figure. Peplum dresses have been all over bridal runways (think everyone from Oscar de la Renta to Melissa Sweet), and for good reason - this versatile style can create, accent, or conceal curves, all depending on the placement of one little frill (or a few).

These Hunter Rain Flats Look Suspiciously Similar To These Marc Jacobs Ballet Flats
From left: the Hunter flats ($98) and the Marc by Marc Jacobs flats ($158.94, down from $195) Hunter (the infamous rain boot company) came out with a line of water-resistant ballet flats that look eerily similar to these Marc by Marc Jacobs flats (right). But let's address matters one at a time: Hunter makes ballet flat rain shoes?! When did this happen? Well, we must have been living under a rock, because apparently they've also come out with really adorable Hunter Boat Shoes, too. But onto the next point, their waterproof ballet flats look strikingly similar to these Marc by Marc Jacobs flats, which happen to be on sale here at Endless.com (Get 'em while they're hot, though---a little birdie tells us there are only 2 left in stock).

A Size 2 At Gap Is An 8 At Banana Republic: Shopping At Lower Priced Retailers Makes You Feel Skinnier
This weekend, the New York Times published a fascinating article on sizing discrepancies amid retailers, which asserted that "vanity sizing" (the process of sizing clothing larger than it's true size so as to make customers feel thinner) was more prevalent in the lower-priced lines. Furthermore, the NYT study found this to be the case even within the same companies! (more…)

Jessica Alba’s Affordable Closet Makes Us Like Her Even More
I'll admit it: when Jessica Alba first hit the Hollywood scene I pretty much hated her. Which isn't fair (hate is a strong word) - but you know that feeling when you're just offended (read: jealous) by a female actress? For some people it's Julia Roberts, but for me it was Jessica Alba. But then she started wearing Madewell and other affordable lines that I shop, and I kind of started to like her. Now, she's been spotted in this under $100 Aqua dress, and I think I'm officially a fan. Are you? Get Alba's look, on-sale: this Aqua Printed Silk Dress with Jersey Racerback is now $58.50, down from $98. You don't have to like Into the Blue, but you gotta love that price tag. You'll need an extra long, soft cardigan to nail Jessica's look (and in life in general). This Halogen Boyfriend Cardigan ($68) is the perfect color (gray is so hot right now) and price. What's great about an open toe bootie is you can wear it with both jeans and dresses. This sleek Franco Sarto Open Toe Suede Bootie ($99.95) has the perfect arch (not to mention pricetag). Since everything else in the outfit is under $100, spend the money you've saved on the gorgeous Marc by Marc Jacobs Dream Lil G.G. ($458). You will wear it (and love it) every day of your life. Shop Vena Cava for Aqua now - it's 30% off. Then head over to our guides for the best black dresses, sheath dresses, and celebrity dresses.
Fashion Week’s Worst Looks: The Not-So-Good, The Bad, And The Just Plain Ugly
Let's face it - we all love Fashion Week but every year there are some runway ensembles that we wouldn't even wear if we had a gun to our head. At the shows, we ogle over the obviously chic (oh, hello DVF) but politely keep a poker face when other pieces, so avant garde they look more like traffic cones than clothing, walk down the runways. The Spring 2011 collections were no different; this year, raccoon tops, Tetris pants, and plastic bags were among the low-lights.
