Wearing Kansai Yamamoto

I posted this amazing Kansai Yamamoto skirt I got off eBay a few months back...it is definitely time to show it some love again.

Worn today with Ann Demeulemeester lace-up sandal boots, an American Apparel sweatshirt, my new favorite vintage necklace, and an Antonio Palladino gold octopus ring.

This octopus ring is not mine! Mine is silver, my mom has one in gold. Sometimes we trade. I cannot reiterate enough how much pleasure it gives me to wear my favorite animal on my finger-- it's glistening jointed tentacles come to life with every twitch of my finger.

Can't get enough of these Ann D's!! I know, I know...I'll shut up about them.

Denise gets as excited about Ann Demeulemeester as I do. She was very animated today...she's always trying to get into my pictures.

and now I'm going to share some pictures of David Bowie wearing Kansai Yamamoto...





Here is a very short clip from one of his shows in 1971-very theatrical!

Hmm...where to begin..

Okay well let me begin with saying that this has got to be on of my favorite looks of yours!

It is pulled together so marvelously and also very effortlessly.

The nail polish + the jewerly combined with a teeny bit of midriff showing and those delishhh Demeulemeester's (they are DIVINE in that shade of brown by the way)

Its simple and chic and unique and perfect. You are fabulous.

I really have the feeling your photography has improved,
keep it up!
But i can remember your beginnings with the collages
and the scannings of your scrapbook, and i really loved those, they remembered me of the ones in the vogue Italia!

Photo of Alyssa

blue is an amazing colour on you...

Photo of Elo

ATTENTION PLEASE !! Ann D. lovers: if you go on the Zara website, you can see rip offs of these fabulous shoes... that are very alike and even more fabulous ! Don't know if they are currently in stores, though... I still haven't seen them.

Photo of Julia

Sorry, usually your style is interesting, but that looks just like a child dressing up... expensive shoes don't necessarily make a good outfit.

Photo of ...love Maegan

oh that RING!!!! fabulous!

Photo of Nini Nguyen

awww Jane!!! You always look so great!!!! Love your Ann D lace up boots. Have a nice day.... Hope to see you soon.

Photo of Victoire

Photo of Moni

I LOVE the skirt! For some reason, it reminds me Akira. Or maybe informatics designs.

Speaking of octopi, I've been seriously considering what I have to do to have one as a pet (and if that's even legal). :P
