"I really do believe that art changes the landscape of the world." -Marc Jacobs

 Happy December everyone! I haven't made a blog post in quite a while as, alas, I have been swamped with schoolwork. I have quite a few posts to make so look out for those soon! Today I wanted to share and review a few items I've purchased/received as gifts from Marc by Marc Jacobs. Meet Katie the bunny, Pickles the puppy, and Shorty the dog!

 This is Katie the bunny. You can buy this style in a variety of different items - an iPhone case, earrings, an iPad case, a pink coin pouch (like the one I have), a spotted coin pouch, and even a USB port! All of the items are extremely cute. 
This is Pickles the puppy. Rawr. You can buy the spotted coin pouch that I have or a super cute orange one. I purchased my coin pouch from Saks. Pickles is also available as a USB port or an iPhone case:
Finally, allow me to introduce you to Shorty the dog!
You can buy Shorty-style USB ports, earrings, necklaces, iPhone cases, coin purses, iPad cases, and even loafers, which, by the way, are probably the most adorable loafers I've ever seen.....
This is what the Shorty iPhone case looks like.

Now for a quick review!
I highly recommend these iPhone cases. Previously, I owned a Kate Spade iPhone case (which you can see in this post). It was an incredibly cute case and I always got complements on it from strangers and friends alike, but it had one humongous downfall - it was not at all functional. Every time I dropped my phone, the case would slip right off into the three pieces it was composed of. Basically, instead of protecting my iPhone, it jumped ship. The corners cracked quite easily and eventually the case broke. I was so disappointed! :(
These MbMJ cases are really good cases. I've used both already - I alternate them. They are really convenient and they actually protect my phone. I always get complements on them, as well, and they brighten my day with how cute they are! Also, since they are rubber, I can slip my ID card and Metrocard into them for easy access, since my phone is always in my hands. The only downfall is that they are a little hard to put into my back jean pocket if need be, but that's not a major issue. Overall, if you're looking for a cute and functional iPhone case, this is the way to go. Marc by Marc Jacobs has made them in several varieties, each one cuter than the other - you can choose from Javier the owl, Julio the zebra, Rue the cat, Pickles the bulldog, Katie the bunny, and Shorty the dog



Now for a quick review of the coin purses!
They are super cute and fit quite a bit; you could probably use them to store keys or an ID. You can also use them if you quickly need to go somewhere and not take a lot with you. They have key chains so you can hang them on your keys, or, as I plan to do, on to a bag. Marc by Marc Jacobs has a variety of these coin purses, as well - choose from Prince the frog, Pickles the dog (spotted), Pickles the bulldog (orange), Shorty the dog, Katie the bunny (spotted), or Katie the bunny (pink)


Here are all of my Marc by Marc goodies! :)

I hope everyone is doing well! I wish all of you that are taking finals the best of luck! :)

  1. Aww, those are too cute! I would love to get a coin purse. Just wondering, does color rub off easily onto the iPhone cases? I currently have a rubber case and all the edges are blue from my jeans.

    1. Thank you! :)
      I've only been using them for a couple of weeks so far but I have not noticed any discoloration! However, I also almost never put my phone in my jeans - I'm usually holding it. I think that's probably a common problem with light cases and jeans that stain :(
