Lazy Weekend

Is everyone else in North Texas sick of this gloomy weather yet? It's been wet and grey for two months now. It's starting to affect my mood...but at least this weather provides a good excuse to crawl into bed and watch movies.

This weekend I watched A Room With a View (because I love Helena Bonham Carter) and Paris, TX (because I looooove Harry Dean Stanton..even if this movie was kind of lame)

Went to Chili's with my best friends on Saturday...


Wearing an 80's sequinned angora sweater with jeans purchased from V.O.D., and Balenciaga ankle boots


Then on Sunday morning I went into town with my mom and sister to check out some furniture at Again Design Studio in Dallas. My mom is a big fan of both of Leslie Pritchard's stores.



I wore my favorite patent Alaia platforms and 80s Claude Montana pants.

Hope everyone had a great weekend...for now I have to pack and catch up on correspondence before I leave for NYC tomorrow. I'll be back Thursday!

Thanks for reading :)

First off, yes I'm SICK of this dang weather. Did we skip fall and go straight into winter?!?

Love the jeans with the zip pockets. Looks like fun times for you this weekend. The owl pic reminded me of a really awesome store I stumbled into this weekend called the Antique Garden. Great clothes and really awesome French antiques. I'll post pics tomorrow.

Jane you look absolutely amazing in red...especially with that new hair color. Love! those Claude Montana are amazing as well...

Autumn equals hot chocolate in bookstore window seats(with a stack of european art magazines) and gorgeous, gorgeous coats! Coats that you can keep open to show the rest of your outfit, then button up when it gets chillier! What's not to love?


Photo of Nathalie

love your jeans! and those patent alaias are fab..

Photo of Jesse

Oh lord....god-fabid, nipples! Everybody has em, expressing your distaste for the sight of them just makes you look uptight and puritanical.

Oh, and I felt the same way after seeing Paris, Texas.....way over-hyped and kinda drawn out and boring.

Photo of Isabelle

On a super strange moment; I also watched A Room with a View yesterday and wanted to go frolicking in the streets looking like Helena today.

Photo of Roz

I actually like gloomy weather,as it means I have a reason to stay inside and read books,or like you said,watch movies! But I suppose that only applies every so often for me.. I'm glad it's not like that all the time (but probably will be soon- I live in the UK, renowned for rain!)
Great outfit choices. I really like the blue kimono jacket you're wearing in that one shot. And that furniture shop looks so amazing! There's something I find really attractive about interior design and furnishings and all that. That owl image (is it a painting?) is beautiful.


Photo of Elizabeth

wow i'm really in love with that blue jacket you're wearing! it reminds me of a short kimono. lovely platforms by the way.


Photo of Amy

awesome photos again

Photo of amber

question: are taking a break from school? How do you get to travel around so much without getting behind?

Anywho -LOVE the platform/pants combo. And the red sweater outfit is AH-mazing! so cozy and fun.



Photo of Ramonies

I too am tired of this crappy grey weather. I think I live close to you (also in the Dallas area) and I can't tell you how badly waking up to nasty greyness every morning affects me...at least we have good shoes to brighten our moods, right?

Photo of sofiasophie

I loooove your last outfit, these shoes are crazy and the C.Montana pants are very trendy!
you look beautifuk!

Photo of Cheyne

This weather is hitting Tulsa too. All gloomy, bleh. At least I can start wearing sweaters and tights and cardigans galore.! (:

I was just curious, what kind of camera do you use.? The quality is very nice and I'm considering buying a new digital camera around Christmas time.

Also, those trousers are divine.

Photo of evangeline

i love love love both the shoes in this post!
the weather is just as cold and gloomy here in Chicago...have fun in NYC!

Photo of Alison

personally, i am a fan of a little nipple exposure (just to balance out some of the previous criticism.) for fucks sake, we all dress to be sexy now and again...and tight pants and cleavage are...blehh. As long as jane isn't abusing it like jennifer aniston, who the fuck cares.

the red sweater and jeans are a win. I won't comment on shoes. Obviously you've got that situation handled from the start of this blog until forever.
