What my trip to Austin yielded..


Pretty amazing stuff!! I think I'll be going back with my friends sometime this year for another shopping trip.

Somone commented asking if I had been to Lucy in Disguise with Diamonds-yes, I did go with my mom and we were mesmerized by their endless collection of costume jewelry-I've been trying to find some animal brooches and they had like an entire zoo of animal brooches so I brought a few home.

The necklace is so sparkly and over the top-when I've worn it I've noticed people's eyes go straight to my neck-it's hard to miss.

Style Station was a random boutique off the side of the highway that had vast quanities of cowboy boots, Levi's, and some vintage clothing. I think my mom and my grandpa and I are going to go look at boots there sometime next week.

:) Excited to wear my new things.
Jane

    And the jewelry is incredible!!

  28. Speedee888 says:

    Hi. You have a lot of fans here from the Philippines. I love gold jewelry too and love stacking them together like you do. Can you take a close photo of your gold watch with the gold bracelets? Thanks!

  29. Absolutely amazing finds! I love the black fur cape especially

  30. richel says:

    I really really love your blog. A lot. I tried doing my hair just like your second photo, but it didn’t work on me. After seeing how you successfully mastered the look maybe I’ll try again!
    Would you like to exchange links? Because I’m just too in love with all of your looks.

  31. Lol says:

    please please please learn that less is more.
    Wearing 75 layers of expensive designer pieces does not make you fashionable.

  32. Love-Lee says:

    You always have really cool ideas but you should really work on what fits you and what doesn’t. Some of these outfits (#3, #4 & 5) are REALLY UNFLATTERING

  33. anon says:

    deleting comments doesn’t make your style any better

  34. eliza says:

    wow. my jaw dropped when i saw those broches and that necklace…good shopping trip indeed! that giraffe caught my eye especially, but the whole lot, clothes included are all so great individually and together!

    Your new finds are lovely. The last outfit is my personal favourite.

  38. aya says:

    i’m in love with your style, just found it:O

  39. Zoe says:

    I think sometimes more is more! I like how you are so inventive with your style, so many people play it too safe! fashion should be fun, a bit of irony makes every outfit more interesting

  40. Key says:

    omfg!!! you look amazing! i feel so shopping deprived… :( really
    i need my fix right now, but it´s´almost 11 pm here in Mexico
    your stuff is awesome… i really love all your funky shoes.
    Do you really go to school with them? :O
    xoxo

  41. I love those animal brooches! …I collect animal jewelry indeed :-)

  42. Tamar says:

    How i long for the day when animals will start stripping the skin off humans and wear them as clothes – using loose terminology like ’50′s glam’ and ‘vintage’ to describe a period where humans heads were stuck so far up their ass that they saw luxury in a product of animal cruelty – the more rare the animal, the better.
    this is the year 2008, we are not idiots, fur is murder.

  43. Poster Girl says:

    Wow, you found some really beautiful pieces. So you made it to Lucy In Disguise With Diamonds! I could spend hours in there :) The shops on SoCo were my favorite when I went to Austin on vacation.

  44. Linnea says:

    My grandmother has the giraff! I think it looks exactly like yours! Strange, because I’m from Sweden.

    You´re wearing: tha golden girls look ;D
