mjlaceupshoes.jpgHadley Freeman is right, ever since Marc Jacobs got a makeover/went to rehab/whatever he seems a scarily changed, blue-haired man. These shoes (£375 from Browns) however take me back to the old geek-Marc days when he was just out of his grunge phase and his clothes were comfortably grannyish (nostalgic, moi?!). I'm loving the three-tone mix of colours and the ribbon laces; schboots are ten a penny at the moment and these lace-ups stand out from the crowd.
