Well NY if you haven't noticed we are in a very rainy month, I mean its really coming down out here. Those of you readers not in a rainy region right now, lucky you, I have something for you but first let me handle the fashionable solution to the rain. Well those soft sheepskin, classic UGG boots that you've been wearing all winter will not do you any good when the inches of precipitation aren't frozen so I present to you...
The Marc by Marc Jacobs rain boot. Great for women and adventurous men, now I say adventurous men because not every man will be able to pull this off. These boots are light weight, comfortable and extremely protective. They sit slightly under your knee and have an adjustable strap at the top where it is precisely labeled "Marc Jacobs" so you can adjust the boot to fit your calf. This is a good investment if you reside in New York, New Jersey, Kentucky, West Virginia, Florida or any other state this is currently being affected by the heavy rains.
Now if you aren't being hit hard with rain and wind and you see nothing but blue skies and you want to do your part to help the current state of the economy (spend some money) then here is what I suggest you target... a Spring Jacket! Go to the Marc Jacobs website via the link to the right, look under the Marc by Marc Jacobs line go to ready to wear and pick your gender. The jackets are more towards the end of the display. To locate a store near you go to the company option in the top bar, if there aren't any stores in your area don't fret you can always shop online. Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs products are sold on eluxury.

Ladies and gentlemen everything that you've read about the fashion show has been carefully planned to prepare you for this moment; the introduction to the Award Tour! Some of you may already be familiar with the line and the people involved with the line but for those of you who aren't get comfortable in your seats because L&F is a train, I am your conductor and the next stop is Award Tour ave.
The Award Tour Sweater. This is the epitome of leisure and according to Award Tours own "Juice" warmth. This particular item can be worn to fit or can be worn oversized but be careful when over sizing you dance closely with looking silly. The sweater is designed true to size so if your a medium person; get the medium.
The Award Tour Hoody is in my opinion the most wearable in the whole collection. I say this because you can put it together with anything. It can be worn as an outer piece by itself, you can wear it under a blazer, you can wear it small and show a graphic tee underneath, or it can be worn big.
Clothes with a message has been a reoccurring theme in this show but this time its slightly different. These messages are more than just that, there actually quotes from A Tribe Called Quest. I'm not sure if they all are but all of the ones that I've seen are. I think the fact that the message is taken from somewhere else gives it so much more meaning and it enables the clothes to reach so many other people that otherwise might not have been affected. Overall I think the line is well put together and extremely wearable and when you add the hats which are easily spotted you leave me no choice but to give this line 5 stars and deem it the most likely to survive in the industry.
The name of the line is Lethal Inspiration and when I seen the Coolness P walk out in their cardigan I seen why they go by the name "Lethal"; I almost dropped the camera. Oh yea I probably forgot to mention that L&F's own Coolness P walked in this show for all of the lines. He is shown below in the L.I. cardigan which I will be purchasing soon as I can get a hold of the owners of the line. I think this line is right up my alley, they won me over with the cardigan but they really got my attention with their attention to detail on presentation of the green L.I. shirt shown above. When this model walked out I arose from my seat one part impressed and three parts shocked. Encore for Lethal Inspiration. Look out world their coming.
