Marc Jacobs silk dress with piping from Spring 2010

I’ve been waiting for months for this Marc Jacobs dress to show up in stores.  It was the last piece in his Spring 2010 collection, which I honestly didn’t pay much attention to because I am weirdly anti-MJ.  It wasn’t until I saw the dress on Christina Ricci that I became obsessed.

Well, the dress is finally here.  With a price tag of $4800.  The sheerness of the layers make the dress look like it’s drawn on, with squiggly black lines floating in the air.  It also kind of makes me think of Pig-Pen.  If Pig-Pen were a girl and had to go to a formal event, I think it would turn out something like this.

While I was waiting for the Marc Jacobs dress, I happened upon a similar dress by Fendi.  It’s more practical, but not much more affordable ($2,990!).
