Designer Marc Jacobs back to Rehab
Round two for Marc-y Marc Jacobs. The high fashion designer (my love) has checked himself back into rehab.
WWD: After seven years of sobriety, the designer relapsed recently and decided to undergo a second round of in-patient rehabilitation for drug and alcohol abuse. The day after showing his Louis Vuitton collection in Paris, Jacobs, who has publicly acknowledged substance abuse problems in the past, left the French capital and flew to a treatment facility in Arizona.
Reached for comment earlier today Jacobs’ business partner Robert Duffy confirmed the rumor that had started to circulate around New York. “Marc made the right decision,” Duffy said. “He’d been sober for seven years. When he relapsed, he wanted to deal with it right away.
“According to the experts, such a relapse isn’t uncommon,” Duffy continued. “Thankfully, Marc recognized the problem himself and chose to deal with it. Obviously, our prayers are with him.”

< * chant * > Guess Who! Guess Who!
Who could be the mum of this little one be? The little tot was recently spotted out and about in Beverly Hills with his Juicy Couture carrying celebrity bodyguard / part-time nanny.
Who’s the Mum? The hints:
* On the Celebrity Smoker List
* On eBay sold a half eaten sandwich for $500 and her sons email account name for $5
* Recently tied with Paris Hilton on Mr. Blackwell’s 47th annual worst-dressed celebrity list
* She’s one of the few artists to have multiple diamond awards (meaning selling more than 10M copies in the US)
If you are dying to know what bag the bodyguard / nanny is carrying, it’s the Juicy Couture Quilted bowling bag. If you are on the hunt for the white quilted Juicy Couture Satchel it’s very difficult to locate since most of the styles from this line are sold out or are on (or soon to be on) the clearance shelves. However luckily I was able to spot one on eBay, only one quilted bowling bag, and it’s in the dark brown (cocoa) leather color. Click here to check it out!

The Fray Band Members with their Dooney Bags
Spotted: The Fray band members Isaac Slade (Vocals/Piano) and Ben Wysocki (Drums) with their pretty new matching Dooney and Bourke Purses! Looks like Mr. Nick Lachey wont be the only celeb guy who will be spotted this spring season with a new Dooney and Bourke tote.
I wonder if their bags will ever see the light of day. Do you think they will keep it or shove it off on one of their friends? I don’t know, Isaac looks like he’s enjoying his new signature tote. But Ben has that funny look on his face, the look that my boyfriend gets when I ask him to hold my purse.
The Logo Duffel was made in an exclusive color combination for the Jingle Ball artists, but a limited quantity of bags are still available for purchase, on sale too!

Bag Face Dustin Hoffman and the Texier Man Bag
I know, that was a little rude of me, but really I’m not far off from the truth, as you see pictured above it is Dustin Hoffman sporting a shopping bag from the boutique Texier over his head as a mask. That’s neat Dustin. Anyway if you like the Cross Shoulder Bag that Dustin is wearing then you can find the same one via TexierUSA.com for $350. Or of course you can visit one of the Texier Boutiques near you to pick up one of these bags, although I don’t recommend wearing the boutique shopping bag as a mask.
Okay I know what you are thinking – How the heck do I know this image is of Dustin Hoffman and not some other male celebrity sporting this Texier Man Bag?
Ahh, the proof. . . .continue reading
