A lot of outfits

There really is no way to explain how I ended up wearing all of these outfits in less than twenty four hours, including two that I did not photograph. The truth is I just change clothes a lot.


Y-3 pancho/cape/top, vintage 501's, a borrowed Omega Seamaster watch, my Ann Demeulemeester lace up boots :)

Last night I tried on this Y-3 pancho my mom had gotten that day at Fourty Five Ten-she says she'll share, which I'm excited about because this is totally my style: I have a plethora of heather grey sweatshirts. Not to mention I'm addicted to Y-3...in fact I've been meaning to do a post on the amazing styling of the runway show this season. Looking forward to seeing the Spring 09 show soon too!

The way the sleeve is unhemmed and double layered is a fantastic detail.

And this morning-

J. Crew pleated cotton shirt, Joie satin pants, lace-up Ann Demeulemeester boots

and then, shopping and a last minute get together for mexican food

Dries van Noten cardigan, American Apparel tank top, Shipley and Halmos skirt, Alaia gladiator heels, Tom Binns cuffs

What was I shopping for, you might ask? A sister for my Tom Binns 'Faux Real' floral cuff. I'm so happy to have two! One alone looks fabulous but two really makes a statement-the picture does not do these cuffs justice at all, the way they catch the light is dazzling. I couldn't believe the mark down on these!

The cuff that does not have the purple flower on it is the new one-I was going to get one with a more similar coloring to the one I already have but my dad suggested choosing the blue tinged one for contrast...he was right!

I loved my mom's outfit when she went out tonight.

She wears an Old Navy shirt, a Ralph Lauren belt, Hysteric Glamour jeans, and Dries van Noten sandals. Jeans cuffed to show off those amazing shoes, of course.

More (coherent) posts to come,

I don't comment often, but I love this post, so I had to. I love the tuxedo-look of the white shirt, especially with the boots. I also like the third outfit. Great skirt--I love Shipley and Halmos (especially the Spring 09 collection). Those cuffs are gorgeous. I don't even want to know how much they cost.

Photo of Becca

Great outfits! I love the tuxedo blouse and black pants with the infamous boots in particular. Also - those cuffs!!!!! A-maz-ing.

Photo of WendyB

Those boots are the best.

Thanks so much you guys! :D

Caroline-I used to be able to buy Y-3 from the Adidas store at North Park mall here in Dallas but they stopped stocking it there. Now I buy Y-3 from eBay and a boutique in Dallas called Fourty Five Ten. I'm dying to see the Y-3 store in New York sometime though!
It's ridiculously wearable!

Love all your outfits Jane! Especially the white tux shirt & boots outfit, almost equestrian. And LOVE both your Tom Binns cuffs, have been obsessing about them since you first posted on them! May I ask where you bought your 2nd one from? (not 100% sure why I'm asking, seeing I live across the globe...but, you never know!). TIA!

Photo of brigadeiro

PS. Your mom looks amazing too! Dries Van Noten is one of my fave designers, and those shoes are seriously HOT!

Photo of Amee

All 3 of your outfits are perfection Jane! I cannot believe your mum made an Old Navy shirt look so good and expensive! Those Tom Binns cuffs are to die for :)

Photo of Topaz Horizon

I love everything you wore, Jane! I wish I could be brave enough to wear them though! But do know that because of your site, I've become more adventurous with my dressing. So thanks!

Photo of Libby

I think you should change outfits this often every day so I have even more of your beautiful photos to gawp at! I absolutely love that shirt, now to track down a British equivalent...

Photo of Nubby

I love how you and your mom share clothes and shoes. So cute!

Photo of pungster

No fair! Both of you would still look beautiful even if you wore potato sacks.

Photo of vida

You and your mom work your shoes AND clothes like no other.

Photo of Jen

loving the outfit you wore to go shopping. and i'm so so jealous of those fantastic boots!

Photo of Ané

This jealousy of all your amazing clothes is going to make me be really rude someday. But for now, I'll contain and be nice. You are fantastic! You're clothes are fantastic! I wish I could afford all that! Until I'm able to it's sit here and grind teeth, haha.

No seriously, you are fantastic!
(Oh gosh, I've used the word fantastic too many times in this post, I guess I should broaden my vocabulary)

mmm, I have a request, maybe you can take a pic of ALL your shoes? I'd like to see'em all! Or at least tell us how many pairs you actually have...

and oh, random question...do you speak in a Southern drawl, because somehow I can't imagine you do?

Keep it up!

Photo of Omega Seamaster

The watch looks very good. It's a mens watch but it still looks good. There is more info on Omega Seamaster watches at www.omega-seamaster.co.uk

Photo of Saree

i am in love with your cuff outfit and cuffs! OH MY JANE, OH MY!!

Photo of Shen-Shen

I absolutely adore that cape/poncho from the first outfit.

Photo of Jane

Thanks for the comments, everybody.
Ane-I honestly didn't know how many shoes I had for the longest time, but this week I got asked that in an interview and I had to go count-45 pairs of shoes...still not as bad as some people!
My friends say I have a bit of a southern accent, for the record haha

Thanks again!

can I ask a size question? THE demeulemeester lace-up heeled boots, which I am thinking of ordering online--how do you think the sizing runs? big, small, true? I'm usually an american size 8 with a moderately narrow foot. thanks for any insights! I adore your blog.

Photo of Key

lovely lovely lovey... as always!
lots of love from Mexico :D

Hi Anne-my mom and I found that the Ann D boots run very true to size. I am normally a 9 and I took a 9, she's a 10 and she took a 10. Good luck with the boots! :)

Photo of ilikestyle

love all the outfits. hope you post more of your mom's style.

Photo of Marilynn

Well I must say I do adore your outfits. And those boots in the first couple....FIERCE!

Keep it up [:

Photo of 1234

you and your mom look beautiful!

Photo of eliza

the first time you posted about the boots i wasn't sure, but the more i look at that heel, the more it wins me over. i kind of love them now and am madly jealous of you in the best possible way. the cuffs are gorgeous as well, and congrats on the refinery article!

Photo of kristin

the double cuffs are great! and I love the outfit with the new boots and satin pants

Photo of Mrs. C

you're right, two cuffs are better than one! i better scope out matching cuffs too, they look amazing =D

Photo of Shannon

hey love, the pics are so great!
just wondering how much those cuffs cost!
just an approximate cost would be great
i love them!

Photo of dori

hey i work at a y-3 store in nyc and the cape is actually pants. its called the "spant", half shorts half pants. its the most confusing piece we sell, i tryed it on like a poncho too when i first saw it cuz thats what i thought it was. take a look at the runway pictures, u'll see it in there

Photo of Brigadeiro

Dori, I was thinking the same thing, as I have my eye on these 'spants' but in wool... Wondering if I'll get enough wear out of it to justify the cost...LOVE it!

Photo of Le Fashion

LOVE that watch!

The Tom Binns are divine. I handled them often during my internship at Harper's Bazaar.

Yellow looks awesome on your mom :)

Photo of brigadeiro

PPS. Where did you buy the 2nd cuff from Jane? TIA!

Photo of Smife

Photo of Sus
