Today I hung out with my mom, my sister, and my cousin at Northpark to have some lunch and do some shopping. Yesterday was our last day of school, so we were sort of celebrating the beginning of summer…I almost wimped out and stayed home (because I got like, three hours of sleep last night!) but I'm glad I didn't because it was one of the funnest times I've had in a long time-they make me laugh so hard.
Mom and I picked out outfits together this morning…she has been eager to debut a breathtaking Christopher Kane dress.
It's a total collector's piece-I'm in awe of it. It feels incredible too! She says she'll let me borrow it sometime. Obviously not an offer I'm going to resist!!
The genius of this dress is that such a compellingly bizarre and barbarous statement has been put on such a conservative canvas….such dichotomy allows for some pretty reckless styling! This dress could seriously go with everything.
Today Mom paired it with vintage Levi's and Yves Saint Laurent cage booties today. (and her usual Ray Ban aviators and Prada tote)
After gassing up, we had a tasty lunch at La Duni.
My cousin Sidney on the left and sister Carol on the right!
After lunch…shoe shopping….lots of shoe shopping. There is more where this came from, but sadly my camera battery ran out…!
These Yves Saint Laurent cage heels are mine-I'm in love with them! I much prefer these to the mid-calf cage ankle boot. The velvet bow is genius.
Another shoe purchase…I've been lusting after these since day one! I can't seem to resist anything western-inspired. Guess it's just my undying appreciation for Texas…I've always had a thing for cowboy boots.
These are next level, though. The clean lines of this shoe, the double platform, that industrial-strength zipper-these Givenchys mean business….they're total shit-kicking shoes. Not to mention they are very comfortable for walking.
Today I wore a new dress I picked up at Seven in New York. The dress is Henrik Vibskov. I grabbed it because it was a total steal….and because I couldn't resist the hypnotizing print. I'm not even kidding, staring at this dress made my eyes hurt after a while today.
My headphones are from Eskuche for those who have asked!
And because everyday needs a soundtrack-today I choose Logic System's 1982 LP Venus.
Have a great summer everyone.
I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE your Yves Saint Laurent cage heels !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Patricia Ann says
It’s interesting how you sometimes write about your Mom when it comes to clothes that she’s bought. It makes me feel like your Mom is a bit hesitant at times to share stuff. I mean, nothing wrong with that of course, it’s sort of just a normal thing between females. But, is it true? :)
Your cousin has really nice blue eyes. Are those real?
your mum has a gorgeous style!!! totally in love with everything!
lisa from london says
love those shoes – the unexpected velvet ribbon is genius!! adds the element of surprise.
Hi It’s a Henrik Vibskov dress… Here is a link to his webshop
Alexandra May says
Where did you get those headphones? I LOVE GOLD!
Totally love the way how your mom styled that awesome kane dress with the vintage levi’s and the cage booties! Just PERFECT!
Oh, the Givenchy shoes… Congrats on getting them! They’re stunning!
Looks like you all have a lot of fun together.
What an adorable family! :-)

fashion roadkill says
Seriously love the cage heels. The velvet bow is a great detail. I also prefer these to the bootie. The dress print is really psychedelic and I like the yellow underneath.
AMAZING SHOPPING! your mother is so beautyful!
Moda Cadısı says
OMG, this dress is one of my favorite pieces of this season,I’m green with envy :)) I love Givenchy boots, too :)
You mom’s dress is so WOW!!!! I love it so much… Two thumbs up for it… :))

Oh I love that Christopher Kane dress,its looks really good on your mom!and the shoes..IM SO ENVY! :D
LOGIC SYSTEM! One of the best bands EVER!!! I’m not at all surprised you’re into them, considering other music you have mentioned in previous posts. I’m on the lookout for some Yellow Magic Orchestra, I’m guessing you’re into them no doubt?
ragil mega says
Nice outfit you got there.. and LOVE the new shoes..
and how cool is your mom’s dress. I’m a little scared though, the creature on it looks real!
I love your entire look , you are definatly one of the few American teenagers with real style .
Taru Tuomi says
yes, your heels with the velvet ribbon are gorgeous. Did not find them in my YSL boutique though. Thinking of getting the cage platform sandals in black patent though.
mr. freddy's mom says
omg! omg! omg!
you ladies are sooooo gorgeous!
i love your mom’s top! it drives me crazy!
jane, you look so cute in that dress!
and your cousin is so beautiful!
Don’t gte me wrong, love the Christopher Kane dress. But I always think something so instantly iconic can instantly date it – maybe ‘date’ is the wrong word. I suppose I mean I wouldn’t wear something so instantly recognisable …
anyone else agree, or care to put it more eloquently?!
amy williams says
I swear, ever since you re-started this blog, it has got better and better.
The clothes and shoes in this post seriously are the best, I mean THAT C.Kane dress, 2 styles of the YSL Cage shoes AND those amazing Givenchy booties….you two have exquisite taste!!
La Coccinelle du Sud says
Amazing outfit ! Yves Saint Laurent cage heels <333333
Loving YSL shoes, Sidney & Carol’s smile & Givenchy’s shoes!
the yves st laurent’s cage boots are the only shoes I want right now, maybe I could kill for having it!!!!!
your cousin reminds me of ashley olsen.:p
Cant believe your mom has that CK dress! It’s pretty amazing. And i love all Givenchy shoes in general, theyre just on a whole other level.
Your outfit is sublime. Also cannot get over those luscious cage heels and your moms Christopher Kane dress. Ugh it hurts.
And Jane, what are those amazing earphones!?
The cage heels and the Christopher Kane dress are both perfection.

Greetings from France

Your mom pulls off the ckane like nobody’s business.

Emily Rose says
I LOVEEEE that kane dress!! I’ve had my eye out for shirts like that to do some sort of christopher kane – inspired look, but to no avail! your mom styled it perfectly. and the cage heels look so fun :)
AH! This post is overload. You and your mom debuting your YSLs (the silver leather looks great with your nail polish), your mom’s dress (TOO GOOD), that sick new dress from Seven, and those Givenchys are too die for.
I just LOVED your shoes! congratulations, you’re so fashionable! I wish I were like you, but because I’m brazilian I can’t go out shopping stuff of good trades everytime. hahahaha (haha it’s like laughing for the case americans don’t use it)…
Well, I wanna do fashion college in France in 2012, but before I’m going to live there next year! =)
Loved your blog,
Oh, and actually, I’ve seen you on march’s teenvogue, that was just FABULOUS!
Lila Sweetheart says
That dress scares the hell out of me! I love the caged shoes though.

the first day of summer MUST be spent outside…glad you had a blast!
I am in loooove with those cage boots, too.
Maybe when I can afford it. hehe!
Visit my ebay store.. lots of vintage items…
Wow!! Your mom is the coolest! love her top! And Jane those YSL’s are to die for and that shade of red is perfect on you!=)
haha yesterday was my last day of school too… thank god!
sigh, i am seriously jealous of your ysl silver cage heels!! where are they available?! even if i could find them here in nyc, i probably wldn’t be able to afford them thgh. have they gone on sale yet?!!
congrats on all ur purchases. love ur dress.
Your mothers dress is INSANE!!! It’s frightening and stunning at the same time. Sooo crazy! I like the print on your dress
I made you fan art! it is a fashion collage
ohhh good to know the givenchy’s are comfortable, i ordered them online last week! love those ysl’s, the juxtaposition of the cage and bow is genius.

Ty Ty says
Wow ur mum has the christopher kane dress, she looks great in this! and ur outfit is awesome, especially the shoes…. :)
love the ape! wow. and your dress is lovely as well, wow.
The stripped swirly is hard on my eyes, but nice. The animal dress is way too much,it looks as if bites!
awesomeness! Henrik Vibskov is a danish label, and how it makes me proud to see that our tiny country can still contribute to the fashion industry! have you seen any of his other designs? its pretty genius, actually!
You are the best Jane, really. After all this blog hit, when you see everything, you keep me in total surprise! You are amazing, girl.
Lady Godivas Operation says
Hi! What does your mom do for a living? Just curious. :) Have the best summer!
I absolutely adore those cage shoes! That dress/tunic is great and the shot of you by the pool (or fountain, can’t really tell) is really cute. Don’t fall in!
wow your mom looks awesome in that crazy gorilla dress…and your optical print dress is so fresh.
Grid shoes..man..barneys is sale-ing those right now and you guys are making me want to give in.
your mom’s dress is crazy!
and i love the hypnotic print.
sigh. i keep living vicariously through you, young one.
those headphones are SIIICK!!!
I want a pair of pastel pink headphones.
you look pretty too!
Fashion Intel says
The yellow in the Vibskov is amazing. I am so glad it is summer and look forward to seeing your looks with the new season. It gets sooooo humid in Texas!
...love Maegan says
I DIED the first time I saw that dress your mom is wearing!! LOVE IT…love your striped dress too …actually, i want it. :)
I am in love with your mom’s Kane dress! I die.
Omg your cousin is so pretty!!
Loooove the YSL cage heels, and love the bow
william shatner says
yr moms dress is insanely cool!
Miss Red says
the shoes from that YSL collection are so fabulous! i agree that the ones you bought are better than the full-on cage shoes, but their both amazing nonetheless. your mom’s dress is so FIERCE. it’s so surprising. when i saw the first picture, before the close up, i had no idea it would be the scary monkey mouth! but that’s what makes it so unique. i love the givenchy shoes you’re wearing and your dress is pretty hypnotic. i really like the yellow print against the black print. they work really well together.
fickle red riding hood says
I love your mum’s dress. And your YSL cage shoes are amazing.
The Christopher Kane dress has a bit of an optical illusion – love! Also loving the print and colors of the striped dress. Looks like you had a great day!
You’re lucky you’re on break from school! I like that dress, can see how it can make you really dizzy after awhile. ha I’ve gotten a few pieces from Henrik Vibskov and he makes some really cool stuff. Enjoy your summer!
Style Scientist says
I love those YSL cage booties! They are great!
hah, I remember seeing that dress on Kristen Stewart in Nylon. It’s crazy amazing, but doesn’t it cost a ridiculous amount of money?
I get that you’re into high fashion, but this post, I don’t know, to me it kind of screams pretentious…like, YSL heels, Givenchy, Prada…kind of indulgent, right?
I like your blog, and I hope you really, deeply, truly appreciate how lucky you are. Most everyone can’t afford such luxuries.
Your mom has amazing style, though.
i really love your boots
love the christoper kane on your mom and your new shoes!
obsessed with the givenchy boots and your dress is amazing! how wonderful to have a ridiculously stylish mum whom one can borrow christopher kane from!?
Shoe shopping=love, except my shoe shopping is done at Kohls, etc. Haha though Vera Wang’s shoes for Kohls are pretty epic and surprisingly comfortable!
Love your dress & your mom’s is intense!
Blahh and I have another week of school!
hi i was wondering who takes your pictures??
i have a blog as well and i would very much like to post my outfits
I love this! You look so cute with the lippy, headphones and glasses. The last picture of you is perfect.
the Six Six Sick Girls says
I saw that dress at Seven! I’ve been wanting to buy a Henrik Vibskov piece for a while, but they’re all sized for tall Danish girls, and look horrible on me. I love it on you!
i’m really in love with ur dress.. argggghhhh…
I seriously hope your mom got that mouth dress for free. It’s horrible. (That said, I understand fashion and that’s not it.) The good news? Awesome Halloween costume!
im jealous of your moms cool/outrageous/bizarre-looking dress! and your headphones:)
those givenchy’s are sex on leather.
In looooove with that Christopher Kane dress.
Love the cage heels! :)
Jane you look great! Those shoes are amazing (duh) and your mom looks amazing as well. Hope your summer is amazing.

stephanie s. says
I. AM. IN. LOVE. WITH. THAT. DRESS. !!! :] The Vibskov one, I mean.
kristen stewart wore that same christopher kane dress in her feature for the march 09 NYLON. just so ya know.
love the ysl heels. i’d kill for those! gorgeous
i love it!!!!
this is not says
hey, while you flaunt your style, i hope you take great pride knowing there are girls your age work slave hours, being raped and abused around the world, and that i somehow question whether or not your rich little daddy does anything about it to support global issues. does it feel nice to sleep at night princess?
because i surely hope people who don’t give a crap and walk around in thousand dollar shoes at 16 feel really good about how fucking lame they really are.
you look stunning! really impressing, the monkeyshirt. like it!
omg your cousins eyes ;o cool
WHOA tgat gorilla shirt ;-D
Congratulations on the mention in the LATimes.
AWH JANE! Those are my favourite shoes from the YSL collection!!!
please tell us how you can afford shoes like that.
after having just thanked you for giving me a wearable look at the McCartney’s, I am so excited to see the caged YSL heels on your blog, and on your feet!!! If you have time to read and answer posts, could you please tell me how they wear? I have also been contemplating these beauties, but they look a bit, well, caged! My guess is they aren’t the most comfortable of heels?
Love from Holland, -x-
Great photo of the Kane dress. I’d seen it in the collections, but this is the first photo that made me realize just how much the image jumps out at you – other photos online made it look a lot more one-dimensional. And of course, love the shoe purchases.
what lipstick colour are you wearing? it’s gorgeous. x
I love the dress and the shoes!! Looks like a lovely day !
I like that dress….
but i m kinda scared of your mum’s!
Michael Anderson says
Best Outfit yet! the glasses complete the whole thing!
OMG totally loved your outfit! the yellow and white with the black and white stripes, incredible! so jealous of your mom’s kane dress!

You my dear are a power shopping MAVEN! The cage heels are my fave part of the S/S 09 collection!

Came across this blog through Google. Wow…my life is going to hell in a handbasket, my family is drowning in debt, literally suffocating, and clueless teenagers who seem to grow money trees in the yard, use Vogue like it’s the latet J.Crew catalog and are held as the next aesthetic second coming. This is a bit much for me, so best of luck in your future endeavors.
Pls tell me the location with the blue pool background. Where is that at and the name of the place pls..I would really appreciate it. Pls reply to my email. Thanks so much! I admire your style, you’re always looking fabulous.
gorgeous gorgeous shoes girl.. i would love to find the brand of those peep toe boots for my blog http://livinthefablife.blogspot.org!! I love writin about shoes and my picks of the week and this would def. be it!!

fucking A! the top is awesome!
Read my blog if you want to read about a swedish girls glamoures student life. My blog tells you all the secret and even more ;) You can translate my blog into english with google translator, there is an icon at my blog.
Hugs and kisses from Sweden!
is it just me or is everyone tripping balls right now? none of these pictures exemplify enviable style, but rather two dumbed down label whores with an exorbitant amount of money and nothing better to spend it on.
I find this entire blog to be profoundly retarded.
I’ve cycled through several emotions while perusing these entries, “suicidal” being the most prominent one, and I have come to the conclusion that not only do I hate Christopher Kane gorilla-print garments now, but also gorillas in general.
Thanks, you assholes, for completely ruining something for me.
I’m french, so sorry, my english is probably bad.
I would like to know where your mum or what is the name of the mark (like Chanel, YSL, etc …) of her t-shirt ??
Thanks and felicatation for your fashion succes :)
Good bye, Chanelle Patou.
