« GOODBYE TEXAS | Main | first stop in tokyo-ADVENTURES IN KIDDYLAND »

June 17, 2009


This would be my last day in Los Angeles, tomorrow afternoon my mom and I are flying to Tokyo. I'm sooo tired from running around LA for three days.
We're staying in Santa Monica-am very happy to see a beach. We have a great view at the restaurant at the top of our hotel.


One of my favorite stops here in LA was at Maxfield.   
I love the sculptures outside the store.

Really windy and kinda chilly in LA this weekend.

Hence the dumb poses in these pictures! Wearing thrifted vintage leather shorts, YSL cage heels, Lillith blouse, and Prada bag.

Carol fondling my mom's Natalia Brilli leather-covered amp chord. 
Kinda looks like she has my mom on a leash. Not a bad idea considering some of her antics here in LA ;)

My mom (and I) are in love with her yellow Margiela clutch.

The Nolex by Natalia Brilli and her usual Omega Seamaster watch.

Hanging out at Betsey Johnson while my sister tried on some v. cute dresses.

We had a nice lunch at Sur on Monday.


The whole time we were here my younger sister wouldn't let me take her picture-she had all these cute outfits on, but she'd pull some weirdo face like this whenever the camera came out. What a jerk! Hahaha.
when we were driving around we kept seeing this poster for a new Jack Black movie and me, my mom, and my dad all agreed that Carol's crazy facial expressions made her look like Jack Black's would-be, could-be daughter. 

I did get one normal picture of her though-so pretty when she doesn't stick her tongue out at me ;) that isn't to say I don't love the pictures I get of her funny faces.

I didn't bring my camera out today but I was very happy to see Lucrecia (of Fashion is Poison)-had so much fun.
About to fall asleep at the keyboard at this point-goodnight and next time you hear from me, I'll be in Tokyo!

Hey Jane,

Whole family has amazing style - as ever!

If you have time, check this out-

I know you love vintage, and I just found out about these auctioneers who sell the most incredible designer vintage (think YSL Haute Couture from the 60s), from pre-1900 stuff right up to 80s Comme and 90s Gaultier. Did a post on my blog about them:


have fun on your travels

Photo of Sara

I like your sister's jacket! Where is it from? :)

Photo of daisy

Lovely outfits in this post, and pretty photos.! Glad your having fun! Have a safe trip!

Photo of Christing

lovely pics! sounds like a fun trip and i'm soo obsessed with the yellow clutch! love how it's ridiculously oversized!


Photo of Lauren

thanks for the pics Jane! especially for taking the time to do a post on vacation.

I really love your Prada bag, but I'm beginning to think carrying it with every outfit may be hurting the outfits a little bit-or even if not hurting, simply adding nothing to them. Enlisting 1 or 2 more bags in the rotation wouldn't hurt!

Photo of KD

Amazing pictures, your outfit is to die for!

Photo of ava

Hi jane! I like these pics. I like Carols' RL Rugby Jacket. Pretty! <3 Ava
