LOTS OF PICS AHEAD//stupid pictures taken while running errands

Today I tagged along with my mom and my sister to run some errands. I took the camera and we ended up making a pitstop at Joanne's to pick up some plastic animals. Unfortunately they didn't have as large of a selection as we would have liked but we still had fun.

Walking around outside whilst waiting for my sister to finish her voice lesson. 

This crazy glitter jacket was purchased yesterday when I went thrifting with a friend. It is so insanely sparkly and it feels like a Brillo pad. I love it.

They have a lot of different 'Toobs' of plastic animals to choose from. They aren't all animal toobs though. We have a Jamestown Settlers toob.

Okay I promise to get some real posting done soon. Sorry for bombarding you with dumb pictures.

But in the meantime,
why don't you check out the fun little project my mom and my sister and I are working on:
We figured it was about time to do something (useful?) with our little zoo of plastic pets.

ah, not dumb at all. but i see your point. great outfit though!

Mathew: Just because a picture is taken with a D40, doesn't mean that it automatically comes out fantastic. Using a camera on it's correct settings is what gives you a crisp, none pixelated image. DSLR's used on the incorrect settings can come out as bad as a cheap point and shoot sometimes when given to someone who doesn't know their stuff. A good lens always helps, especially one with image stabilization under dark light. It's kind of daunting how people assume just because an image is taken with a £400 D40, the pictures should automatically come out fantastic. The real skill comes with the photographer, not the camera.

Anyway, lovely post Jane. Always a pleasure to see your stunning outfits!


Super cute post! Looks like a fun day :)

Hi Jane!

Also I am so dying for that incredible squid ring you have!

Photo of Patricia

I love your style!

I would like to talk about you in my blog if thats OK with you... it's still very new, but i simply love how edgy and sophisticated you are!

Photo of Matthew

Christine - I never made the assumption that $500+ camera = pristine pictures. Usually - actually... always - Jane's pictures turn out fantastics. Seeing these just make me question why the sudden lack of quality? Was it the camera? Was it the way the picture was save? Etc...

I came to the conclusion that the only reason the pictures turned out gritty was because they were saved under .gif rather than her usual .jpg

Photo of CHIC Sensibility

I love that color green. It looks great.

Photo of jamb0

did your mother start her blog...if so what is it called

Photo of wednesday

i love your blog and i love how adorable your family is! you guys are so cute and these pictures made me laugh...jamestown settlers toob...that is quite awesome, gotta say. as always beautiful outfit, i'm always in awe of what you come up with on your blog and how you always look amazing (plus your extensive shoe collection which i am eternally jealous of)...also one question: do you go to a public school and if so do you wear all of this to school? including the shoes? anyway not impt just wondering.


Photo of addison

Photo of Tandsm

Aw who knew shopping could be so much fun!

Photo of Nicole

Seriously those shoes are amazing!! They're probably worth my rent, but I must have them. What info can you give me on them?
Also, contrats on the bloggie nomination. I voted for you, of course. You've got great great style, especially for someone so young. I've got over 10 years on you and while I think I'm pretty damn stylish I'm always impressed with what you pull out/ pull off.

Photo of Nicole

Again, congratulations. You deserve it.

Photo of Shen-Shen

Haha I love the plastic animal a day!

hey man, trying to set an age limit on who should play with plastic animals is NONSENSE. plastic animals are for everyone! my husband and i drove across the country last year and we collected plastic animals along the way and displyed them on the dash of our vehicle. by the end we had a collection that spanned the entire country and mixed dinos with llamas and giraffes and zebras ... great fun! it's lovely to see relaxed pictures of you horsing around with your family. That skirt is beautiful. I would love a skirt like that. Keep being young and beautiful Jane!
