My favorite LP as a kid was "Täti Monika" (Engl. Aunt Monica). It is a Finnish childrens song about your funny aunt who loved to dress up and go shopping with her pretty hat and handbag swinging. We loved to pretend to be her while dressing up (at age 7) in my grandmothers dresses, party shoes, jewelry and evening bags. A little frumpy and maybe a bit too big, but we felt such ladies! Marc Jacobs Summer 2009 collection reminded me of this lovely time and I need to make this look for myself this summer.

Later edit: Moohoop, your interpetation of this Marc Jacobs SS09 look rocks!
