I am so into these crazy eighties dresses right now...
lots of volume, dramatic cuts, shoulder pads, and narrow waists...

This black beauty is not mine for keeps-it's for the vintage site. Couldn't resist trying it on before it's sent to a new home. Again, you can email me or my mom if you're interested in it!

My mom and her friend Kelly were thrifting this week and Kelly picked out this incredible dress-thanks Kelly!
I am so in love with-I know I say this about a lot of things, but I really think this might be my favorite dress I own.

It has so much fabric...even though the fabric isn't the nicest quality, it feels very luxe because of the volume. 

The dress doesn't look half as good without this belt, in my opinion. It's the perfect color. I like the leopard print vs. zebra print.

You really need the crazy eighties necklaces with these eighties dresses.
I hope to find some more soon-expect to see some on the vintage site soon maybe!

The first one is gorgeous, but not everyone could pull it off the way you do. The second dress is more my style of silhouette - gorgeous!!

I'm also very very down with the 80's resurgence. Volume in all the right places; dramatic without losing any chicness.

agreed about the belt.

That black dress is absolutely stunning! Love the drapeyness of the skirt in particular, GORGEOUS!

I love how you made the second dress work, especially with your perfectly undone crimped hair.

Photo of Style Scientist

Wow...very 80's indeed! Great modeling pics as always, Jane!

Photo of Leila Wylie

These are great! Not everyone can pull off a crazy 80s dress but you look fab!

Photo of Ashley K

I love your hair crimped, it's so pretty! And that 2nd dress is just great, especially with that belt. Hotness!


Photo of Elizabeth

Both of those dresses are absolutely gorgeous. The eighties? Ah, indescribable. Haha!
Oh, and you're style is equally amazing! You have an amazing eye for what looks fabulous together.

Photo of Elizabeth

Excuse my horrible grammar! I meant your style. Not you're style!

Part 80's- love it, born in the 80's myself :)
part Daryl Hannah (in Splash, also 80's) love that hair on you, dear!


Photo of Amanda

that zebra one is awesome! i love the bottom of it!

Photo of Hui

The way the skirt of the first dress sort of billows and folds downwards, creating that most remarkable shape - is too lovely to behold.

I love how you've matched the jewellery with it. An impeccable match. :)


Photo of gennie

that belt is so ridic cool! love it against that crazy print :)

Photo of neon bloggers

you are gorgeously fashion

Photo of Sabrina

I love that necklace! It's the perfect size, nice and big

Photo of Brooke

love the first picture. very beautiful.

The drama and glamor are really speaking to me. The volume / silhouette of the first look is dead on. And it's great how the same set of accessories works so well on different dresses. Great as usual!


Photo of Bri

i am crazy in love with that belt!!!
did you get it here in dallas?

The first dress is gorgeous. I love how sculptural it looks.

Photo of Kathleen

Photo of Nora

wow, i really love the shapes of these! certainly gives a lot of volume and dimension! the first ones make your legs look super long and fabulous and your jewelry are always amazing :)

You look absolutely fantastic. Great that you play around with your hair. Don't think I've seen this part of your house yet. Love the warm-coloured wood. I'd like to have a better look at that painting, it looks interesting.

I heart vintage prints. People aren't as adventurous as they used to be...
