Memo Pad: Diary of a Dot-com Fashionista... Double Vision... New at Time Inc....

Between a two-day taxi strike to kick off fashion week and the now-mythic two-hour delay for the start of the Marc Jacobs show, the bloggers had plenty to discuss during this New York season.

Her advice on when to start a show: "When the big hand is on the 12 and the little hand is on the 9, it's time to start the show."

Jezebel: "Not only is Marc Jacobs on every editor's s--t list, including Vogue editor Anna Wintour's, he should probably also keep an eye out for some PETA-hurled red paint. His on-and-off boy toy Jason Preston reportedly showed up to Marc's show and after party with a dead-mouse brooch pinned to his lapel, designed by Jacobs himself, of course. Discuss: Was Marc more talented when he was a slightly chubby blow-ho? Either way, Benjamin Moore "Tricycle Red" will add a much-needed splash of color on that roadkill."

And, on his rant in WWD: "Jacobs has until February to think about where he's going to show his fall 2008 collection: snooty, impatient New York or snooty, impatient Paris. Marc, seriously, you might want to think about this one. New Yorkers just yell when made to wait; Parisians will literally flog you with baguettes if you pull that kind of crap."

Tracy Lomrantz, for Elle: "I arrived [to Marc's after party] with a massive hangover, was handed a gift bag and, when I was finally ready to leave at 2 a.m., had to stand in line and try and be pushy with the KCD ladies to avoid said line. Or maybe that's just what it feels like to me, since I have been to 22 parties in the last 6 days. Believe it — my feet ache, my liver hates me and my meals for the last 72 hours have consisted of canapes and late-night pizza. All in the name of fashion!"

On fashion week do's and don'ts

Tinsley Mortimer for Glamour: "Do keep your hair and makeup from the night before if you have an early show the next morning.

"Don't go to a street fair and get zeppolis and crepes in the middle of fashion week!!

"Don't tell your husband you have had a stressful day if you have just come home from some shows.
