You AND the MJ Bag Need to Back the Eff UP!

20 March 2008, 01.04 | Posted in Uncategorized | No comments »

I’m such a lightweight. All day today I’ve been at minimal operating capacity ’cause I had a whole three glasses of wine last night. At our visit to Reebok today, I made Samia do all the heavy lifting ’cause I couldn’t even find the heart to take my camera all the way out my bag, point the lens at the shoes and push the button. Weak. I know.

Anyway, since I don’t have any images to post, I figured I could at least highlight another blogger, who actually was on top of her game today. And that would be Black Girl in the City, (who, btw, we would love to give links love to if David would give us even half the shit we’ve been begging for for over a year). Today she had a hilarious post on a recent dust up in a movie theater. I’m not going to post the whole story, but here’s a nice taste….then you can go to her site and read the rest!

Her almost alien looking oval face was flustered as the manager was trying to explain to her why they couldn’t give her $10 in quarters.  But forget all that.  My main concern:  her Marc Jacobs bag was right under the butter…that I needed….so I could get on my way to the Dr. Seuss experience (on time).     

I smiled and politely said, “Excuse me.” She shifted her eyes toward me and never stopped blabbing to the manager about whatever she was sayin.  I paused before politely but a little more aggressively saying, “Ma’m, excuse me.”  A command that this time could not be ignored.  When she looked at me I motioned for her to move your purse so I can get my phukin butter please?  Dag! This woman puts her stop sign hand in full effect saying, “You need to wait just a minute.” Straight gangster! 

This story makes me think two things. First, that the non-stop, drama that is Marc Jacob’s life could possible be manifesting itself in his merchandise and the people who purchase it, and second, how rich AND stupid are you that you would leave such an expensive bag that close to a container that’s not only full of grease, but no doubt spraying it on every surface within ten yards as well?? I’m telling you, money is wasted on the wealthy.

Murakami @ The Brooklyn Museum

13 March 2008, 21.17 | Posted in Uncategorized | No comments »

Murakami is coming to the Brooklyn Museum. His exhibit will be parked there from April 5 through July 13. Those of you who know these things know that the people watching on opening night might actually be juicier than the exhibit itself.

BrooklynMuseum Murakami @ The Brooklyn Museum

It doesn’t say this on the museum’s site, but in a category we’ll file this under Combined Art & Commerce Grossness Epitomized, I read on Agenda that this exhibit is being done in conjunction with another Murakami  Jacobs/LouisV collabo. ‘Member last week how we asked: “On the entire planet is there a color, collaboration or treatment that could be applied to a bag covered with LV logos that would inspire you to think, “Damn–THAT bag makes me wish I had a sugar daddy!!”? The answer is still a very definite NOPE!

With warmest regards from the BK,

Clutches at ShopBop

05 March 2008, 18.57 | Posted in Fashion, Stores | No comments »

Speaking of clutches, ShopBop is highlighting them as a must-have for spring 2008. This one, which is “coming soon” to the site, is tasty. It can fit all your crap for day and makes an above-average transition to evening. And getting that extra mileage is good ’cause it’s Marc Jacobs and it aint gonna come cheap!

^^Out with quilting and other busy details and in with toned-down, chic and classic looks.

I wouldn’t mind owning this bag AT ALL.

Longingly yours,

M.I.A. & Jacobs….sitting in a tree

12 February 2008, 19.44 | Posted in Fashion | No comments »

We here at HighSnobette headquarters couldn’t love M.I.A. more so it was with some dismay when we opened the March issues of Glamour and Lucky magazine to discover girlfriend-in-our-head all decked out in Jacobs gear. Which, fine, make that $$$ girl, but damn, please at least tell us he made an offer you just couldn’t refuse. Cause c’mon, for real, dude is clearly beneath your caliber.

And I checked Vogue, for whatever reason–prolly cuz the mag rejected the image ’cause it featured a brown person–no M.I.A./Jacobs ad for the same month.
