Are you guys getting ready for Halloween yet? I am...or at least, my dad is. He put up his decorations this weekend. My dad lives for Halloween, which cracks me up because he can be a little tight-laced sometimes. Not when it comes to decking his house for Halloween!


There are three of these big spiders in the house...and even some dangling from the roof outside.

I went over today to keep Denise company...she told me the spiders were creeping her out.

Wearing Levi's jeans, thrifted polyester plaid shirt, unknown scarf, and Proenza Schouler booties.



Blech..I'd love to spend this gloomy day working on some projects and eating Halloween candy, but I think my sister has passed her swine flu on to me. Guess I'll be in bed watching scary movies. Being sick is so annoying when there is shit that needs to get done.

First scary movie on my list: Dario Argento's Suspiria (1977)

The music in this movie is awesome!

Happy Halloween everyone...

Jane have you listened to Cromatics? They sound suspiria-esque- really good! Also the After Dark EP with Chromatics & Glass Candy and others is good. I've already decked out my house too ;)

The colors in your outfit work perfectly. love it. those boots DO look like ski boots.

Taken from NYMag, we just thought you should know:

The FTC just passed some new regulations that require bloggers to disclose when something they're writing about is actually free swag a company sent them for publicity. Wired notes that the world of wine blogs will take a pretty hard hit; fashion blogs could, too. Full disclosure: People send us free stuff sometimes. Everything from laundry detergent to nail polish to moisturizer samples to eyeshadow to toothpaste to handbags to jeans. Do we write about these things? At the risk of screwing ourselves out of more freebies: no. We don't feel obligated to invite people we don't like to our birthday parties and we don't feel obligated to write about things just because someone sent them to us for free. However, smaller, independent blogs that focus on products — say, fragrances or handbags or skin creams — surely receive lots more free products to review. They don't often tell readers, "Someone sent me this for free and I happened to like it so I'm telling you I like it." If a company pays a blogger to say nice things about their products, the blogger must likewise admit that in the post, according to the FTC's new rules.

The basic premise of the new regulations is great. People deserve to know when anyone is endorsing something simply because it's free. But what about print publications? They may borrow clothes and send them back (though not even every article of clothing is returned), but that's not the case for beauty products, which companies send to bloggers with no expectation that they'll come back. (What would they do? Send them out again? "Dear Marie Claire, Enclosed is a jar of our BRAND NEW MOISTURIZER containing REAL PEARL SHAVINGS and THE BLOOD OF SEAHORSES that Vogue and Elle editors have already sampled. Thought you might enjoy a third go at it! Cheers, YOUTHFUL LOTIONS OF THE SEA.")

But if the FTC will impose fines on people who so much as tweet about products they're getting paid to endorse without saying so, they should also crack down on affiliate links. Many blogs covering products include links to where you can buy that product online. Those sites then give the referring blogs a cut of the profits for the recommendation. In the fashion blogosphere, that is probably a bigger problem (if it is a problem — people do have to make a living) than is bloggers endorsing freebies they happen to actually like, or even getting paid for the vote of confidence. The FTC is yet to clarify these regulations. Maybe they should "get online," as they say, start a Twitter account, and throw us a tweet when they've come up with a revised set of rules that makes more sense.

I love Suspiria and agree the music is awesome. I had to set the theme song as the ringtone on my phone.

Te sigo hace tiempo. Hacéis unas fotos divinas. Y tienes unos zapatos de ensueño. Besos desde Estella.

Those are some intense decorations! I have to admit, I have a huge phobia of spiders and I had to scroll down really quick to avoid that hairy spider picture! Your outfit is so cute and the first thing that popped into my head was "D Squared." The cuffed jeans paired with the Proenza Schouler booties go perfectly with the plaid shirt!


Photo of Heather

Definitely watching that movie for sure, as soon as I can.
And the house looks so gorgeous Jane!

Photo of fashion roadkill

Amazing outfit. I love how the neon green in the scarf totally pick up the neon green in the bootie. Perfection.


Photo of Kassie

I just found your blog and read back so many enteries. I love your style and taste.
The swine flu is not fun. I just got over it. Its best to take two or three days and just sleep. I got over it in about a week.
Good luck and feel better!
