A CRAZY VINTAGE BOLERO//so gaudy, i love it

Hanging out with my new girlfriends, the Mannequins!!

This Scott McClintock bolero is so gaudy and over-the-top in real life....it casts little disco ball reflections everywhere I go. It was an ebay purchase and I got it a long time ago but never wore it! 
I'm kind of in love with it right now....I wore this to the orthodontist though and my dentist looked a little amazed. Oh well.

Worn with various costume jewelry, F21 lace shirt, Rolling Hills skirt from Anthropolgie, a vintage belt with interlocking mice, and Prada spat heels.

I could never pull of an ensemble like that. In fact, I would never have known how to wear such an embellished bolero. But you've done a great job! It looks great.

I love a lot of your skirts actually. They flare super nicely and the colours work very well. The spat heels are fab too.

I love the wide shoulders and the belted waist. Gorgeous.

really love the room you took pics in =)

Oh gosh! I think I have a nearly identical bolero, which I believe was made by Jessica McClintock (it came with a velvet dress and was from the 80s, but the dress didn't fit).

That bolero is ridiculous, in an awesome way. I'm way jealous.

Photo of Jayde

Heya Jane, i like the skirt..is it silk? anyways i don't know if it's just my browser..but i think there's something wrong with your StyleBible.ph link..have a good day girl!:)

I have been reading your blog for quite some time and this is, by far, my favorite outfit you've ever worn. The use of the skirt with the bolero is perfection; the skirt compliments the gold on the bolero so very nicely. The shoes are amazing. I would love some of my own. The hair truly finishes off the look.

I have loved reading your blog. Keep up the great style.

the belt is simply amazing. the heels are too shabby either;)

Photo of eugenia

Love the hair. Check out my latest post. I think the shoes are a more conceptual take on what you already have, and would look great w/ some Korean and Jap pieces in your closet.

As always plenty of love to you and your lovely tastes!



Photo of Brittni

Oh my gosh, I love these pictures, put it in a magazine and call it an editorial honey...this outfit is genius!

Photo of Noelle Chantal

WHOA. ookay, not being a total creeper or anything, but were you at schroeder orthodontics today in southlake around 4:20ish?I had an appt. and I thought I saw you.. i'm pretty positive that was you because I remember you anthropologie skirt and yeah I only caught glimpse of the bolero, but the intricate detailing looked phenomenal.

Photo of christineL

oh, and I don't remember all of the bangles, and that specific lace top?

Photo of flutter

You are seriously adorable. Your style is incredibly impressive

Photo of The Minx

ahh, I love how you wore this to the orthodontist! I think if I ever did anything so daring, my poor dentist would faint (he doesn't have much imagination). Bravo :)


Your skin is so perfect that i thought the second to last pic was your mannequin!!

You should wear this to every appointment with anyone in the medical profession from now on.

I saw a bolero almost similar to that at Buffalo Exchange. I was so tempted to buy it, but my boyfriend reminded me that every time I buy something over-the-top, it always ends up at the bottom of my closet.

Photo of James
