This sequinned bolero I am wearing was purchased on eBay early last week and I was thrilled to see that it was as much as a beautiful trainwreck in person as it was in it's pictures-they colors are hideous in the most fabulous way. Its like a bad piece of folk art reincarnated as a tacky 80's relic.
I haven't worn this out yet but I can already hear my friends going 'oh what is jane thinking this time…' :-P
I really should have taken a better picture of it-will do so soon.
Worn with vintage Levi's, American Apparel tank, and Bruno Frisoni shoes.
Oh my! The jacket truly is bananas, hehe (so unique, amazing how you made it work with your outfit, which looks gorgeous)! :) Those Bruno Frisoni shoes are seriously 2D4!!!
PS. Did you mom hire an interior decorator to deck out the house, or did she do so herself? Because from the pictures I’ve seen, it is as gorgeous as your wardrobes and shoe collections! LOVE it! Although I’m not usually a fan of those clear chairs (I mean, they look in magazine spreads, but lack ‘warmth’ and ‘come sit on me’ sort of look), I love how with the addition of that gorgeous ‘woolie fur throw’, it fixes just that: adds warmth and looks so inviting to sit on!
Sorry about the rambling :)
Mmm, those shoes are luscious.
That jacket is AWESOME! I’m not sure how many other people could pull it off, but it looks great on you!
Holy smokes! It is everything you say it is. It is amazing.
you look like one hell of a sexy, retro mamacita with that! you wear it well you know..cause i’d be worried about the funny factor with those sleeves but it looks classy instead!
i liked the necklaces in the background mannequin too!
I tagged you!
love the ghost chairs + wooly covers.

It´s truly bananas! I could never make it work like you :P
Its an amazing piece _ love the green nail polish :D
I have been following your blog for a few months now. I just had to say something after this post :) I am amazed by the way you carry pieces that are so hard to pull off – especially for a 16 year old. I am still trying to define my own style. It must be great to know what you like and what looks good at such a young age :) Keep up the great creations! I am sure you are an inspiration to many.

Yes, please give us some ebay tips…
What a fun garment.
i think it’s really great. somehow friends are less accepting (approving sounds a bit harsh?) of slightly outlandish wear… is it a universal thing? haha
dammit, you’re fierce!
a la mode says
fantastic bolero and great shoes!
hey! :) I love your blog!! and I just discovered it today!! :O (I missed out on a lot!)
If you don’t mind my asking… How come you travel alot? what do you do? :))
Cos I find it so cool! :)) I’d love to know :))
i LOVE the hideousness of the jacket.
I’m glad you kept it simple. I could see how people could make it look 100x more tacky than it already is. But you just have enough to make it pop without overdoing it.
its perfect, but only because you are wearing it.
your shoes are BANANAS
Oh my gosh you really can make ANYTHING look like a million bucks!
bollero is fab! combined with vintage levis, great!!! love the contrast! and the shoes… AMAZING!!!
I WANT IT !
On another note, those cozy ghost chairs are delicious.
Love the jacket on you.
I am also a fan of the chairs. A friend of mine has them in her dining room, and they are supercute. I think they came from highbrowfurniture.com
it’s totally bananas.
Bananas indeed. That is one crazily shiny colourful 80’s moment ine one garment. But somehow you make it work? You’re a brave lady, but you pull it off!
Saree Elias says
OH MY FREAKING GOSHH! I LOVE THAT BOLERITOO! LOVE IT IM IN LOVEEE JANEEE!! KISSES!!
First time commenting but long time reader! Love the whole look, including the coffee cup! hihihi
the jacket is really ugly
Awesome jacket. You’re lucky I didn’t find it first!
Sorry Jane, not even you can pull off that appalling jacket. It looks somewhat decent sitting down, but I’m sure that’s just the work of the angle and camera. Standing up, I’m sure it looks appalling. Starting to try too hard. Where’s your once effortlessness?
AMAZING BOLERO!!! AMAZING OUTFIT!!
I’m from israel, so you can see that your outfits are evaluate even here haha..
This sea realy seduce me to swim in…
Hilarious- “starting to try too hard” when she’s doing what she’s always done ;)
I have an urge to deconstruct the jacket…into something.
Definitely bananas! Only you could pull it off!
Been watching The Rachel Zoe Project?! :D I DIE!!! Love that show! I just discovered it on youtube yesterday and I watched the first 5 episodes nonstop.
I CAN’T BELIEVE IT… I WAS BIDDING AGAINST YOU FOR THAT JACKET!!!! it is the most amazing thing i have seen ever and i thought i would never see it again but i click on your blog and there you are sitting smugly with it (and rightly so!) i actually swore out loud to myself and my boyfriend is now thinking i am crazy! well… if i couldn’t have it i’m so glad it went to a good home! x
also… EVER WANNA SELL IT? LET ME KNOW! X
Oh wow, I had wondered if anyone was actually going to buy that bolero. I recall seeing it on ebay; it is definitely a perfect fit with the rest of your wardrobe. You make it work.

those shoes are a m a z i n g. your whole outfit screams ‘cool’
Ida and Hannah says
The bolero is great, but the shoes are amazing!
Gorgeous jacket, gorgeous shoes, cool a$$ chair and I have the same coffee mugs…haha. :) You have great style!!
I love the jacket itself, but I think more like an art piece than an item of clothing. It looks delicately made and definately by a funky person :)P You wear it very nicely indeed.
Wild wild bolero! And shoes too actually. I am pretty much in awe of your blog.
Trainwreck yes… but it works so good. Love it!
What sort of hat might you wear with this?
Do you know “Zadig & Voltaire”? it’s clothes really pretty !
my personal favorite gram parsons wore this jacket: http://greatpointcustomleatherworks.com/images/gramparsons.jpg … also bananas.
love yours, love his!
Hi everyone. Never make a defense or an apology until you are accused. Help me! Could you help me find sites on the: Aggressive stock picks. I found only this – gary shillings stock picks.
