When we were in high school, our love lives were kind of pathetic, which is why when we were supposed to be paying attention in class, we were actually doodling and daydreaming about the day Jordan Catalano would wizen up and realize that Angela Chase could not only help him learn to read, but also rock his world.

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.
