Dear Jane,

I absolutely adore the cupboard/shelf (in the 11th picture) with your favourite plastic toys. I love the rough, scratched wood and the peeling paint. :D I must myself somewhat guiltily admit that I love to hunt for little treasures in garbage piles that people put in front of their houses. I've found soooo many lovely little things. I love the whole hunting process. It must be the whole prehistoric urge, you know what I mean? ;p But as they say, one man's junk is another man's treasure. Well anyways, I love the shelf/cupboard thing(Goodness, I have no idea what you call that thing. I know there's a word for it!). I would love to hear its story and you know... the whole discovery process. :P

Yours truly,

These are great pictures.. No wonder they're you're favourite things! I really like the picture of all your shoes.. You have such a stunning collection. And those yellow boots are really quite stunning too!
Lovely shoe boxes,bags,toys etc etc. And I really like that first picture too.The back of the jacket is really quite amazing. Its kind of one of those ideas you wich you'd come up with youself! Do you ever feel the urge to design, out of interest? (;
And the louboutins, although being a little scary, are really stunning.


Photo of Lauren

i love your shoe wall! it reminds me of the post you did last year when you had readers choose a shoe and then you and your mom wore outfits inspired by the shoes. i think you should do that again soon. :)

The shoe wall, I've seen it on your blog before,
but this time it stopped me dead in my tracks with
its... power. Hah! Love the skeleton jacket. I am
also interested in how you afford everything, is
it just because your parents had good jobs...
or... somethin?
Much love.

A more detailed post in the skeleton jacket please!!!!!! That jacket deserves it's own post! Has it ever been featured on your blow before? I really would love to see how you style it/ a front view xo b

Hi Jane,
Ah I wish I had a shoe wall, instead I have a rather dangerous couple of stacks of boxes, I swear they will one day topple and be the death of me!
Did we spot some shoes there you haven't worn on the blog yet, someone mentioned above, when you and Judy did the shoe challenge, that would be great to do again - selfishly just so we get to see more shoes!
Lovely post though, I am always intriegued by what people have as there favourite things xx

Photo of maria

I'm drooling over your collection.

Photo of Isabelle

Hi, I have a little question for you: Do you always wear these fashionable clothes and makeup? Every day? Don't you ever get tired of the whole thing? Just wondering how you can cope, I wouldn't! Well, maybe I would if I had your closet :)
//Reader all the way from Sweden :)
