    Marc, Off the Cuff

    It's not a piece of plastic -- it's a piece of art. Regard it accordingly.

    You show us Marc by Marc Jacobs, and we'll show you a bunch of women who never dreamed they'd drool over a plastic watch. At least, not past the age of 11. This papaya cuff (was $150; now $90) has a silver framed watch in the middle -- and of course, instead of 12, 3, 6 and 9, we have M, A, R and C. That seems completely as it should be, though.

    Sometimes, a hipster just needs his guitar strap to look like his Pop-Pop's Bermudas from those 1973 vacation photos. And when that happens, there are straps like the this one in Golden Green Plaid ($40) by Cherry Pop Shop. The handmade, padded guitar straps are adjustable up to 60 inches. All straps are backed by nylon webbing and have leather end pieces to help 'em last through plenty of imaginary concerts at the 9:30 Club.

    We drooled hardcore over M'Obama's shiny Lanvin sneakers, but the $540 price tag just isn't something we can cope with, considering we're not married to the leader of the free world. Yet. But the Galow sneaker from Cr8tive Recreation mixes in purple pastels and modern metallics for a "mere" $95.
