So my mom picked up this vintage wrap dress the other day and before it was shipped to it's new home, I wanted to play around with it.
I'm kind of obsessed with the idea of being able to wear a wrap dress both as a coat, and as a dress. What a versatile piece-you could get so much wear out of it.
These shoulders and sleeves are what really kill me. It's always nice to have those pockets, too.
Very smart and sophistacted worn on it's own. Kinda feel like a power lady. But the right amount of decolletage showing keeps it a little bit sexy.
Wear it over cuffed black pants (mine are Y-3) and eccentric brogues and it's a whole new look. Casual but not sloppy.
The silver chain necklace was a recent purchase-it's sooooo beautiful, isn't it? I feel like I don't wear much jewelry but I will definitely be wearing this a lot. Worn with my Alex and Chloe deer horn and an old cross that was lying around one of our jewelry boxes in the garage.
Close up shot of my Yohji Yamamoto silver brogues.
Heap on a scarf, uncuff the pants, and try some sculptural boots for something perhaps a little more agressive. To me, these boots make anything predatorial!
Everytime I post these Balenciaga Fall 2006 boots, I always get people asking me how I got them-it was a very, very lucky find. I was at Neiman's Last Call outlet and they had just gotten a shipment of shoes in that day. These boots were a season old at that point, but they had been sent to the outlet because one of the boots was missing a harness. I don't even wear the one harness I do have. So I got them for a great deal-lucky, huh? People are absolutely rabid about finding these boots now.
On a sidenote, I am totally obsessed with these Dries van Noten faux-croc pumps. I am stealing them from my mom, so they're a size and half too big for me. But if they go on sale I will get a pair for myself!
That heel is so beautiful and I love the capped toe. Sometimes it's nice to not show toe cleavage.
Randomly shot this gorgeous black and white pleated skirt. It'll be up on Atlantis vintage soon.
This skirt is really quite amazing-every individual pleat had to be sewn together. Worn with Dries van Noten black and brown strappy sandals, and a Richard Chai shearling jacket.
Why, oh why did it have to be that I got this faux fur Sasson jacket in April, right before summer started? If it was winter right now, I would wear this crazy jungle-green thing every day. It's crazy, right? Well, only 6 more months until I can wear it.
Gonna sign off now-I am so ridiculously behind on my email, it's horrible. I have email phobia!
hey jane –
is the wrap dress going to be up on plain objects? if so i would love to purchase it.
love these wrap jacket piks. so versatile! love the naughty teacher piks;)my fav is the cuffed pants look. i think those accessories make it! and those shoes.im in lust..sigh
LOVE LOVE LOVE the wrap coat/dress! Love all the outfits you built with it (especially with the Balenciaga boots), and yay, love those DVN sandals (I have the same & posted an outfit with them recently)!
WOW im speechless too much CHIC in one post lol I love the different ways that you wore the wrap dress, and you truly did get lucky with the Balenciaga shoes….love the fur and the pleated skirt. I love it all!
great jewelry too
Love that dress, it’s a shame it’s gone but you wore it magnificently! Love the brogues, I love when women wear brogues because even though they have way more options open footwear wise, they choose not to choose them. Kind of a sacrifice but not at all since it looks great! Love the faux fur too, I hate this hot weather already too since it’s keeping me from wearing some of my favorite winter pieces. X|
Wow. The wrap dress is fab. The shape is fantastic…I love the hourglass look with cinching at the waist. And its versatility makes me adore it all the more…! Love your blog.
I vote you wear those glasses in every photo shoot from now on!
Every outfit is wonderfully stylish. My favourite is the vintage wrap dress as a coat over th Y-3 cuffed pants. By the way, I love the the Yohji Yamamoto brogues. Silver is such a rad colour for brogues. Any chance that you could give us a photo tour of your house? There are many nice details that I’d like to have a closer look at, such as the tree sculpture above your mantelpiece.
Nini Nguyen says
Jane, I love your Yohji Yamamoto silver brogues.
mr. freddy's mom says
absolutely perfect and gorgeous outfit, jane!
i’ve seen some of the photos on your mom’s blog!
i love all your shoes and outfit!
the wrap is near kimono-like. very sophisticated, indeed. love the different ways you put this piece to use. my fave is the first one :)
Where did you get those cute black framed glasses from?
I’m lusting after a pair.
i love all your outfits, as usual, but your house is amazing! so chic.
OMG this is the first time youve shown us a close up pic of your Yohji Yamamoto silver brogues. They are simply divine!
I know you got them ages ago but where are they from? I am obssessed with them!
ps. love when you do these multi image dressing up posts. Theyre always my fave posts <3
Jane, I love it when you wear those glasses! It makes the picture that much more funky! GREAT clothing choices this post! I especially love the wrap dress and the black and white skirt. PS: I’d steal your mom’s shoes too; they’re so cute! :)
Style Scientist says
This post is full of eye candies! You look so cute in the last pic with that green fur jacket. Love your styling!
Ahhhhh thanks for sharing all of these photos. You home/shoes/clothes/mom’s shoes/mom’s clothes are just so indulgent and amazing. Lucky lucky girl. Oh and nerd glasses + red lipstick is super cute.
You and your mom are great fashionistas! Love all the shoes and the fur coat!
i looooove the outfit with the Yamamotos and the Balenciagas!!
but you are amazing in all of them!!
-Chloe for Opening Ceremony
-Pirates of the Caribbean 4?!
I have been reading your blog for a while now, and I have never been so impressed as I was by these photos. You look amazing, yet age appropriate. The clothes is awesome. Love!
chic . . . overload . . . *heaves breath*
Chelsea Von Mach says
Your outfits are absolutely fabulous! You own such unique and original pieces! lovelovelove your blog!
gotta love pieces that do double duty — especially when they work well as coats or dresses. very donna karan as a dress. explains why you felt like a power lady. next stop the white house? :) super chic as always!
i love everything you are wearing jane!
so lucky you get to play dress up with so much fun stuff!
I see that you finally got yourself a remote for your camera! Unless you’re holding something else in your hand in the last picture… but it looks like a remote! Yay!
those glasses look awesome on you, very sexy business woman :)
Hi Jane, I hardly ever comment but now I felt I simply had to! You look absolutely fabulous and you have such a unique and mature sense of style, its very admirable. You are an inspiration to all fashionable girls and your blog is so different and a refreshing change from the usual grunge-y, hipster, erin wasson-obsessed blogs. Thanks for giving us great looks and a peak into what I believe to be the most FABULOUS closet in Texas!!
omg this post is a crazy amalgamation of AWESOMENESS. hahaha. LOVE EVERYTHING!!!!!
Omg, I also have that green jacket! Crazy! I bought in a vintage store in New York years ago, but I rarely have the nerve to wear it. I think I’ll have to have a little fun with it next winter (or maybe next week, knowing Seattle).
Jane Why do you have to have so much steez!!! Love you for it!!!!!! Your beautiful and keep up the amazing work!!!
I love that wrap dress, how lovely is your mum for getting that for you! I love that you matched it perfectly with simple colours :)
Ashley K says
Love your glasses, you look so cute with them on! And that chain necklace is amazing. Goes without saying that all of your shoes are hot!!
Maude Irene says
The necklace — great.
I am in love with wraps as well, except for up here my main motivation is warmth, then style. Be thankful you don’t have to deal with it.
Lastly, those shoes!!!! uhhhh to die for. Looking for a pair NOW.
The first piece is very Kamali, so great! The glasses are pretty boss too : )
wow what a beautiful dress! looks comfy too, that’s a plus! you make it look great! i don’t think i could pull something like that off! your brown shoes however… those i could do!
your posts lately have been SO GOOD
I love these outfit choices.. i am looking for the perfect pair of black jeans and I love the ones you are wearing in these photos.. do you remember where you found them? thanks!
I also agree the dress is very Donna Karan. Are the glasses the Tom Ford ‘Cary’ by any chance? I’ve been debating between the Cary and Oliver Peoples ‘Tycoon’ for months but you’ve swung me into the Cary camp….
Katie J says
Those boots ARE fantastic…loving the neck chains too!
The Minx says
your brogues are so beautiful, like works of art…the color is just stupendous :)
your yamamoto brogues are LOVELY…
That first piece was brilliant. I wish I had managed to snatch it up at the shop first ;).
Miss Glitzy says
Great outfits and I like the way you play with them. I walk a lot so I’m a big fan of brogues and those by Yamamoto are awesome but I also love Dries van Noten faux-croc pumps.
Rachel Sage says
The wrap dress really brings the brogues to a new level!
I especially love the second look and the final look. The green/orange combo is great.
ohh, the dress is beautiful, your blog is very interesting.
I love the black and white pleated skirt.
Mimo (fashion stylist in Paris) says
Woow, the wrap dress + pants outfit is gorgeous and those Dries heels are absolutely stunning!
soo jane birkin in the photos w the dress.
tina chung would be proud.
Nice to see some more outfit posts but I can’t help but feel that this incredible blog is just becoming a site to advertise Atlantis Vintage merchandise. I think it would be great if you would do something like rumi does between her blog/ebay store. Love the blog… just don’t want to see it melt away or loose its spunk!
Geri Wu says
love the wrap dress! its so sophisticated! the balenciaga shoes look amazing too!
that wrap dress is so amazing and versatile. i now wish i owned one.
every one of these outfits is amazing. i just bought faux croc pumps myself! picking them up today! yay! (after i sleep.)

What season are the Yohji brogues from?
Hello! I love following your blog, and I am even surprised witht myself that this is my first comment. I only have a question: I’ve been looking for some big, dark rimmed, “fake” glasses such as these. I do wear contacts, and i would die to find some like the ones you’re wearing. Where can I find some?
Talk Pretty To Me says
I’m so in love with that wrap dress and it works well as a coat to such a great find. It would be hard to let this go :(
I’m also in love with that skirt its gorgeous! J’adore
I want those dries strappy sandals! the croc ones are beautiful too.
I just want every item in each photo.
That dress is amazing.

Emily Pennington says
I really think you look adorable in those glasses.
Is the Atlantis Vintage venture going well? You must be the best marketing tool for selling these items, they’re styled so well!
Jane, this really might be one of my favorite posts of yours, ever. I’m really impressed with how far your style has come since I started reading your blog. You and I have extremely similar tastes, and I applaud your creativity and the way you boldly display your very own signature style – you’ve got class, girl.
way to go! i don’t think i could love this post any more, even if the ann d’s made an appearance :)
ps: next time an awesome wrap dress like that comes by, send it to me!! haha. love the dress. and we have the same ray-ban glasses, i wear mine every day.
keep it up!!!
THOSE SILVER SHOES AND THE CHAINS ARE THE BEST PART, YOU COMPLIMENT EVERYTHING SO WELL.
Hi Jane , I’ve been reading your blog long time and love it. I don’t usually leave comments, because of the way i am. Now, I have my own blog so I break my shell and go out there(blog’s world)to give comments out.
I love love …the boots. I ‘ve have a dream about them everytime you post that.
i absolutely adore that necklace!!!!! Oh my goodness!
The pics are nice. love,.love…the boots!
Hi, I sooo love the glasses and I wanted to get them for a while now but when I went to the store to buy them they told me that there are no optical ray ban wayfarer (that is not true! – but whatever) so they recommended to fill in optical lenses in the sunglasses. So I decided to do this but there are to different types. The New Wayfarer and the original Wayfarer … ahhhh I’m so confused … which one do you wear on the picture? Does anyone know?
you look absolutely fabolous in these pictures. and so pretty with the glasses. the wrapjackeT/dress is great. and so so so versatile. lucky girl!
jane, you look so unbelievable! it is so refreshing to see your passion for great style shine through your blog. can’t wait to see what you come up with next. xo
I’m totally crazy about that second look (the one with the Yohji brogues)the shoes are amazing!!!
Just love it. Who doesn’t love versatile pieces?
gorgeous clothes. I love labor intensive clothes, like that pleated skirt.
Did your feet just die in flats? ;)
That jacket is to die for! Looks like something I’ve seen on the site http://www.stylelikeu.com. They feature some really amazing people with great style!
what a fabulous piece that is! you look amazing in all of these photos
Can you tell us where these photos were shot? Almost looks like a modern museum! (In a good way).
I have been reading your blog for a couple of months now, and i really admire your style. I live in Houston and even here no one understands my fashion. Keep it up!

‘The boots’ I got some…they arrived today, I am thrilled, on a whim I tried ebay last sat night and found some in my size I stayed up till 5am to bid and got them. I love the rolled up trousers, white top shoes and glasses combination…
I am in LOVE with the Balenciaga boots – how much were they? Obviously it’s too late to find a pair, but I wanted to know how much you snagged them for.
I also love the scarf that you wore in some of the shots – it’s stunning! x’s and o’s!

I admire you so much

Amazing blog! It’s always very creative and inspirational. Being a high school exchange student in Paris, it is nice to see that a teen in Texas can provide the world with such fashion ideas (like Garance Doré!).
Keep up the great work!
OK! i’m sooo excited!!
once I road in a spanish magazine (maybe GLAMOUR?) an article about a girl who has like 16 years old, she collected a lot of shoes, she didn’t live in a “fashion-city”… and I was like Oh my good! it sounds soooooooooooo soo good!
well, in that moment i was in my grandmother’s house, so then I forgoted it.

I’ve read four and I’m reading through them fast. I hope they do a reprint as I cannot find the other five anywhere. Please reprint them. Having commissioned these specially as a collectable only would be a pity.
jenny jones says
love the green velvet jacket … so rich!!! type of jacket that would make a pair of jeans and a white T amazing!
bianca dresses says
I love the way you styled the wrap as a coat with the silver brogues. Where did you get that furry green jacket? Looks vintage and extravagant, but cute!
