Hey guys, I've been taking a little time off from blogging while my boyfriend is in town...but I'll be updating more soon! Thanks for reading.

Mom on the left, me on the right...

My mom and I always end up getting the same shoes! So nerdy. But I guess you like what you like... When I saw these shoes at the Neiman Marcus sale I couldn't help myself...I liked the bloated shape of the platform. Don't these shoes look pregnant? Something about the shape reminded me of african fertility art.

Not to mention the bronze is so pretty with the blond wood platform.



Not to mention they are comfy enough to wear around the house, if you are so inclined...and you know I am. Mom and I both wore our Gucci's to work on an exciting upcoming project of ours!

Worn with Hanes tank, vintage cameo necklace, brocade trousers from Fur Fur, and a scarf purchased in Morocco.


Mom wore hers with a recently found herringbone skirt.....I have to borrow this skirt from her sometime!

Denise really knows how to work the camera...I was cracking up when she decided to make a guest appearance in this picture.

More coming soon!

That is a photogenic dog, indeed.

Not super fond of the shoes, for some reason they remind me of the Wizard of Oz. But hey, to each their own. Love the scarf you're wearing.

Have fun with your boyfriend this week!

I'm really out of the loop on my SOS I guess, I didn't know you had a boyfriend ha. Hope you're having a great weekend Jane!

So cute that you and your mom have on the same shoes! My mom's taste as well as mine is nearly identical so I totally understand!


Photo of Mel

Those shoes are beautiful, and the colors of your outfit are really gorgeous!

Photo of Kati

Whoa, I just bought those same shoes yesterday at Nordstrom! Hella good deal for Guccis (and they are so comfortable). Great minds think alike!

Photo of Ophelia

I seriously just did a little dance when I saw that you had updated! I'm living vicariously through you so when the updates are slow my life always gets just a tad more boring. Sad, I know! Anyway, the shoes (and you for that matter) are gorgeous! I would love to see a picture of your boyfriend if he's not too shy.

Photo of Sylvia

I love seeing how you and your mom both played around with the shoes! It's cool seeing each of your different takes on how to wear them. I don't know if you've answered this before...but are you guys the same shoe size? That, I'm sure, would come in handy!

Photo of Julia

amazing shoes =)


Photo of linda

perfect photos, perfect looks, perfect shoes.
I must have it :DD

Photo of Pearl

These are such gorg shoes, I love the metalic and wood combo! Really loving all the autumnal tones, which look great especially with yours and Judy's darker locks! I love the contrast with the grey in Judy's outfit, and the gold tones in yours, the brocade pants are stuning.
Now you do have us wondering though, how stylish is your Boyf!
Have a great weekend Jane,
Pearl x

Yay we are shoe twins (triplets?) ! I bought mine because I was trying to hunt down the Gucci Imans with no luck, but they are probably far more comfortable anyways. :)

Now that you mentioned the man in your life... we all getting curious, I guess! Show him, please! I was always wondering what kind of spouse you would have

Photo of Erin

i love those shoes! I think they look really good the way your mom wore them with the socks.
Denise is so cute!

Photo of Rosie Unknown

I love the lip colour you are wearing! And the shoes, but I always, always love the shoes.

Photo of Tori

Honestly, at first glance I thought they were different shoes because you both rock them so differently. I love that your blog shows the versatility of a pair of shoes or a single piece of clothing. It's fantastic, especially in these financial times.

Photo of mr. freddy's mom

i love those platforms, jane!
i always adore your style and your mom!


Photo of Sarah

Love the shoes. Although it didn't look Gucci to me at all. Still I think you always manage to pick the most extraordinary shoes.

Also, I love your makeup esp the winged eyeliner tips!

Photo of amber
