This is a very boring and self-indulgent post brought to you by my iPhone.
Click below to see the whole post.

I love the camera feature on my iPhone-like many iPhone users, I'm a little obsessed with it.


Isn't it great that you can Instantly capture precious moments like these?

It also happens to come in handy for fashion emergencies....

"You guys, should I buy this A. Wang dress??" (They said yes, I did)

You don't have to wait a minute to brag on the awesome "2 Carebears 1 Bong" shirt you just bought. 

I have some friends who like to exchange outfit pics on a next-to-daily pics...below are some of the pics sent from my end.

In the changing room at Free People

Trying on some vampy Fendis at Barneys a few days ago

But these are the shoes I actually wore (Dries van Noten sneaks)

Sometime during SXSW

Worn to get sushi, I believe....

Ran out of shampoo, went to Target....

Just sipping tea in my room...

Wore to the grocery store....

Then you start taking outfit pics at the gym and you realize your addiction is getting out of hand...

You may notice some clutter in my bedroom ....sorry about that. Normally I keep my room pretty neat.

Freshly cleaned:

I've had many requests to show a picture of the school uniform I have to wear...

There you go....way to wear navy socks w/ navy shoes, Jane.

Sigh...looking at this makes me miss school sometimes.
Used to have to so much fun screwing around in art class....


It was free dress day at school, and I wore a deep v-neck Ann Sofie Back sweater backwards. Apparently I was showing too much skin so I was told I'd have to find an underthing. My friends quickly remedied this problem by sculpting me a hunchback out of newspaper. I wore it the rest of the day and no one said anything.

I think making this post was a step torwards recovering from my addiction..because at least now I can delete these pics from my library.

I really like the hunchback thing,
I used to love smart ass responses to a teacher's orders in school.
I knew a girl who needed to go to the bathroom,
And her teacher wouldn't let her, but she insisted she was going,
And the teacher said,
"If you walk out that door, don't expect to come back to my class."
So rather than walk out the door, she crawled all the way to the bathroom.

I share the same obsessions with I-phone portraits, LOL.

Photo of kARA

I was excited to the SXSW pic! I know that parking garage you were standing in front of...very close to my apartment! :D



Photo of Sherri

looks awsome!!! p.s. where'd you get teh skull iphone cover?

Photo of jake sutamo

i like some of your outfit posts. very inspiring. some of the shoes you wear are over the top....hideous, not to mention ridiculously priced and dangerous. while coming back from miami late mon, a lady in atl fell off her designer platforms. she screamed in pain while they tried to remove her shoe from her mangled foot. i wonder if shoe designers will rethink some of their obtuse designs if they are sued a couple of times for negligence and or long term deformities caused to the foot and spine.

Question - why do girls wear knee-high socks w/ uniforms??? Wouldn't ballet flats w/ a bare leg be more classic, fashionable, etc???

Photo of Haley

Photo of hi!

what's it like sleeping in front of your shoe cabinet?

Photo of Jayne

I absolutely LOVE the nailpolish you are wearing in the picture captioned "Wore to the grocery store". It appears to be a beautiful dark green or teal. I am wondering what product it is?
LOVELOVELOVE your blog. You have a very unique sense of style, quite different from my own, but I still very much appreciate it. Keep being your wonderful self!


Photo of Megan
