Marc by Marc Jacobs Stewardess-Chic




Marc Jacobs has a knack for making the off-beat seem chic. According to runway reviews, the cute dress on the left is a nod back to a seventies-era flight attendant's uniform, which doesn't exactly sound appealing, but somehow Marc makes it so. While you can get this dress for a mere $321 on sale at Net-a-Porter (that's me being funny), we think you can create a similar look with the adorable frock on the right instead. (We spotted this retro number at our local Forever 21 and have to say it looks better in person than on the web.) Budget fashion for a first-class gal.

Nice picks! That Forever 21 dress is very similar to the MJ one and just as cute. This dress would look great with some perfect white ballet flats or pumps like in the left image, and a great big dark wood bangle.
