Having an organized and stylish place to keep your weed that you can leave out in plain sight is an option any adult deserves.
Hey Laia!I have this Marc Jacobs jacket that I am in love with. Peppermint is pretty much my favourite colour. It's hard to tell what to mix it with though...so it just sits in my closet. Help?? The colour is a bit brighter because my camera is shit, and the zips are pale pink. It's the style that's hard-- kind of '50s/ Grease? I just don't know.

I love this jacket! It's got all the signature Marc by Marc Jacobs details that has made the label so cool over the last ten years. It's a classic shape done up with unusual details like contrast top-stitching and striped rib trim.
Although there is a bit of "'50s/Grease style" to it, I don't think that it's the defining characteristic that should guide the way that you wear this jacket. Sometimes when a piece of clothing is giving me trouble I try to "round it up" to something I wear all the time with everything. Like with your jacket I'd say "imagine this is a denim jacket," and now everything you wear with a denim jacket you can try to wear with this instead.
Looks from Marc by Marc Jacobs' Fall 2001, Fall 2002 and Spring 2003 collections.
Sometimes it's also a good idea to look at the way other people wear similar pieces. In this case I went back to the Marc by Marc archives on Style.com to find your jacket and its cousins going down the runway. Although in the picture they're worn with thick-cuffed jeans, I would stay away from that so as to not look like I'm actually IN a '50s costume.
But I think in reality it's a versatile jacket that will look cute with everything, as long as you keep the silhouette somewhat slim at the top to avoid bulky-ness. I could totally see this becoming your uniform if you stop overthinking it a little and just throw it over all your favorite outfits!The response?
Hey Laia,Thanks for the awesome advice - you're totally right, I was just overthinking it. And thanks for finding the season it's from, I looked for ages but couldn't figure it out. Btw this jacket was like $30 from Melrose Ave in LA... insane. Here's what I wore, kind of using the third photo with the blue jacket... excuse my chronic bitchface. :)
And please make note of Becky's awesome lipstick.
