Here’s a guaranteed way to secure your place as the coolest kid in school: Show up the first day with designer supplies by Marc Jacobs (watch out, Lisa Frank). Following the launch of his bookstore in NYC’s West Village (adorably named Bookmarc), MJ has created a small collection of back-to-school supplies in a similar bookish theme. Stock your desk with colored pencils, notebook-like storage tins, or even Marc Jacobs-branded Sharpies. Better yet, get the whole kit ‘n kaboodle with one of the pouches pre-filled with colorful pencils, pens, paper clips, erasers, and other note-taking accoutrement. Luckily, the prices aren’t that outlandish. The kits are $11-17, a plastic case with mini-colored pencils is $8, and a simple pack of red pencils is $9, which, OK is a lot to pay for pencils. But, small change for all the Gossip Girls out there.

Kanye West is still trying to atone for embarrassing Taylor Swift at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Wow, the self-proclaimed Louis Vuitton Don is willing to give away one of his super expensive songs? Kanye must really be apologetic … or trying to improve his image. He says that if Taylor won’t take the song, then he will perform it for her. But isn’t Kanye making another egotistical assumption that the world wants to hear from him again regarding Taylor? We’re over it. [Essence] Keep reading »
