« INSPIRATION BOARD// | Main | IN PHILADELPHIA//and 'fresh talk' with the supermelon »

November 23, 2008




I was very excited to check out the Y-3 store here and was not dissapointed. I took a picture of Ming, who works there because his outfit was so cool-don't you love his coat?




Today I met Chadd, the Senior Sales Assistant the Rick Owens Boutique here in New York. Isn't he amazing?? Jackie from V.O.D. here in Dallas told me to be on the lookout for him when I was in New York-Chadd is from Dallas too!


The Rick Owens store was incredible. My mom and I both attempted to try on those boots but neither of us could get our feet into them. Sigh.

^The boots that were impossible to put on :-(

^Today I'm wearing a Rick Owens coat (it's not new, my mom bought it last year and lent it to me for the trip, none of my coats are warm enough for NY), Y-3 pants, and my triple lace Ann Demeulemeester boots.

I'm leaving late tomorrow night for Philadelphia but I hope to check out some more stores that were on my hit list.
Thanks so much to everyone who reccomended restaurunts/shops!

Damn, if I could afford that coat!!

Ming looks amazing! As do you, your gorgeous sister & mom (amazing outfits all-round, still cannot get over how amazing your mom's leather jacket is)! Love all the outfits...I agree with Clemence on Chad, haha, cool outfit though!

Your mom's Rick Owens jacket you're borrowing is equally amazing! How I would love to raid all your wardrobes ;)

ming and chad look absolutely smashing although i cant help but think about how hard it would be to get out all that product in chad's hair!
the sea of shoes girls look lovely as per usual enjoy the remainder of your holiday.

I'm so jealous of your rick owens!
Looks like a fun trip. I'm currently going to school in Philly, hope you have fun <3

The first thing that came to mind when I saw Chad is "ANDY WARHOL", haha.

Photo of Katie

that's so awesome! i love ny. i can't wait to see more pictures!

Your outfit is perfection. You definitely fit into the Rick Owens aesthetic.

Chadd reminds me of Edward scissor hands. Both his and Ming's outfits look superb.

Shame about the boots :( Maybe you would need to put flour all over your legs and feet to help slip into them???

lots of love and admiration,

Laura (pugandpips.blogspot.com)

Oh my god, Chadd is possibly the most frightening/coolest person on the face of the earth. Nice to see you're visitng my neck of the woods, I hope you have a great trip!

Photo of mattie

nyc is amazing!!!! 95% of the people u see have incredibal style

i can't wait to go thier in march. last time i went i was clueless about what shops to go to as well as where to find them. i kept asking people where i can find this place and that place.

I heard you had a small photoshoot/interview with Teen Vogue.. doesn't come as a surprise to me at all, though I did double take when my informant told me you were styled.

Photo of Fashion Fille

ooh enjoy philly. i'm from there! goodwills and salvation armies are very good, i'll be looking forward to hearing about your time here!!!!

Photo of laura

I'm curious to hear if you could actually walk around the city in those shoes. I love all your shoes but most of them seem like they mesh better with a driving world. That's the rub of nyc...so many great shoes to buy...but you gotta walk a lot of blocks and take a lot of subways to get to them.

Photo of Amy

I hope you love Philly. I live here so e-mail if you need any suggestions!

Photo of Becca

you look fabulous. I love the rick owens coat.

Hope you are enjoying NY! I feel affraid for Chad, he looks so pale and brittle....
It´s a tad too theatrical and Edward scissorshands for me...Whom i do love, but in real life-not so much. Feels a bit try hardish, wich is never e good thing. The other guy looks much cooler and relaxed!

Photo of erin

I'm excited to see what you find in philly! I love it here and love it see how others like it.

Photo of ainsley

wtfff jane. how can you look so adorable in an AIRPORT? you and carol and your mom are looking like models there haha. i always look hungover or something when i travel.

Photo of Lippa

Luv the grey jacket! And your blog too :)

Photo of Amy Williams

Love this post!
All three of you look great, I just love the RO jacket you wore, the shape looks amazing at the back, and I'll forever be in love with your mum's Balenciaga!

As for the SA's, wow! Chadd looks incredible, so theatrical, just amazing.

Chadd is one of the coolest cats that I know out there in NY. He is a good friend of mine, and has the COOLEST son!(think his son was crushin' on my daughter for a while) Don't let the visuals fool you. Sit down with him for a cuppa and you'll find out. Glad you got to meet him.

Photo of Marian

So what did you, your Mom and sis buy in New York? I cannot wait to hear about all your purchases. You hit the city just in time for the great sales.

By the way, note to Amy Williams above -- Chadd has a son? OMG. I wasn't even sure he was entirely human.

Check out Leehee Fai while you're in Philly. It's about three blocks away from Joan Shepp. You'll be able to get directions there.
If you have time, check out the smaller boutiques in Old City...especially Lost+Found.

Philly is an awesome city. I've lived here my whole life.

Photo of Allie

Ming looks great! Is it weird that I want to meet him?
