I have always been a Marni fan - from afar of course. My budget is a little more joe-fresh-gap-on-sale than straight-from-the-runway. But the colours and patterns and cuts are so bright and fun, I always sigh a little sigh when I see their latest collection. I did a dance of joy when I saw that they are the latest designer line to collaborate with H&M. Now, I was at a store for the Comme Des Garcons collaboration launch and barely lived to tell about it, so I am not sure if I am brave enough to fight the crowds...(oh who am I trying to kid). I do worry though that some of these beautiful tribal patterns will look cheap and feel cheap in person. But they look lovely on-line! I love the dresses and the bracelets. There is nothing in the collection priced over $149 (most of the dresses are $99). It will be in stores starting March 8 - I know my calendar is marked!
I also kind of love the shoes and the wacky leggings, although I ponder their practicality with my current wardrobe... I REEEEEEEALLY love that top dress, and the green African print...and those bracelets... this could get expensive!
