out&about and other news

Two investment pieces I picked up on Friday: Bubble-hem swing skirt by Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair, Zebra print top by Junya Watanabe. I'm in love with them both.

Today my mom and my sister and I headed into Dallas to do some thrifting and get lunch. Pictures were snapped along the way. We hit three of our favorite thriftstores-St. Vincent's, Genesis, and an amazing Goodwill in Irving.

Worn with my Comme des Garcons sandals-these are seriousely some of the best shoes ever!

We stopped for lunch at Patrizio's-some of the best atmosphere and Italian food in Dallas.

After polishing off a vegetarian lasgna, I shared shared biscotti (dipped in chocolate of course) and cheesecake with my mom and Carol. Could barely get out of my chair after finishing. Kinda gross but sooooo tasty you guys!!

Stopped into Anthropologie to check out some furniture.
Clock my mom's new Comme des Garcons brogues-so jealous! Are you jealous?? I'm jealous! I mean I've never seen anything like them! So special. 

Yeah today was so much fun! We got some great stuff at the thrift store.
By the way-Atlantis Vintage is up and running, please pay a visit and check things out.

Spring break just started for me and I am so happy to not be in school. However I've got a lot to do this week and it's shaping up to be not much of a 'break'. Most of the things on my to-do list are pretty fun so I'm not complaining.

I'm going to be in Austin next week-I'll be there Thursday through Saturday. I'm hoping to catch up with some stylish SXSW concert-goers there, I'll be stalking around town with my camera. Shoot me an email if you're there and maybe we can catch up-hoping to attend some cool parties and snap pics.

xx jane

Just so you know, I am so inspired by this blog. You take chances and don't care what people think, and have a refreshing and playful approach in your sense of style. I think it is fantastic that you totally transcend your age. Keep it up! :)

i live in a place where abercrombie and fitch is cool. everyone loves american eagle and hollister and everyone's closet is full of horizontally striped sweaters, uggs, and bows! everyone always straightens their hair and never leaves the house without their dooney and bourke handbags that they got on sale at tj maxx. i think your blog is very inspirational to people like me who don't want to follow every stupid trend and look like everyone else. the only problem is that i can't afford a ton of clothes and find myself often wearing the same old plain t-shirt and jeans. so i guess i could tell you that you look stunning like everyone else has done (which you do, please dont think that im saying that you dont) but i really am just asking you for help so... HELP!

Love the Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair skirt---they're always a favorite of mine. When you're at SXSW, you should make sure to check out my friend Nanna's band, Oh Land, they're insanely good...

Hello from Holland!
It's so funny, I stumbled (pun sort of intended) upon your blog after getting these shoes through yoox and trying to find out which season they were from. I lust after anything in this Yves Klein blue hue (my favorite collection EVAH is Viktor&Rolf's FW2002 'Long live the immaterial'), so I adore them! What's even better (if not for me...) they list them again in size 36 (about a 6), 37.5 and 38 for 260 euros (<350 US). AND in yellow and pink. YAY! I do hope it is not just a European listing (and yes, I know about those balenciaga heels from last year...) This blue has popped up in various places again this spring - happy me! Keep up the good work Jane (and Mom) - and support those hard working North-Italian shoemaking families (like I support the American apparel industry, it's a tough job but someone has got to do it ;o)).
BTW: Browns will be listing those YSL cage shoes (form your logo) soon. ROARRRRRRR.
Enjoy your happy feet!

My God! You can't beat the volume on that bubble skirt ;)

Do you not find the shoes a bit hmm * clumpy * to walk in?
stunning colour though,
I love the skirt !,,

Cute skirt! And those shoes always look great with everything; such a unique color!

It's so much fun to see how Swedish design slowly starts to establish international! This outfit is great and the shoes are to die for.

My god, I LOVE the color of those shoes (AND the shoes in general) ! Simply amazing (And so is Comme des Garcons). And the skirt is lovely too ! : D

Hey girl!!
i added you as a friend on facebook!
i'm from France and i've been kind of obsessed with your blog for over a year now, and i'm soooooo disappointed you're going to Austin this week and not the week after, because i'm going back there (i used to be an exchange student there last year) and i would 've loved to meet you!

Photo of tamaki

You look gorgeous, Jane!! Love the boots and the sandals.
On a side not, I would like to know some online stores that are relatively or very cheap. Living in Turkey doesn't exactly give me the best thrift stores...
Thank you! And keep being lovely.

stop by the kvrxplosion party at Ballet Austin on Thursday night.It's a great lineup and it's being hosted by the university radio station, so there's bound to be some stylish college students there (myself included, hopefully). It'll be a great time!

Photo of kim

I have to say that you look amazing

Photo of Khristine

I'll be in Austin then as well. I don't have an actual pass, but my friends and I are hitting up some free shows. As for the night parties down there, most of the good ones are 21+ (and they DO card), but there's lots of other things to do anyways. I'm hoping to do a lot of shopping down there too. :)
