WHAT I WEAR TODAY//ahh i’m late to school!

Today was 'free dress day' (hah, free?? they make me wear flats!!) at our school-ie: I don't have to wear my uniform. So I felt like I had to wear something a little more out-there than usual for me.

Silver brogues by Yohji Yamamoto, polyester sheer skirt is Comme des Garcons, American Apparel tank top, tux style bib piece from Urabn Outfitters, tie dye jeans from Urban Outitters Gotta run, I'm late! ;-P

  9. Rachel says:

    love your crazy SCHOOL outfit <333 you have real style. really individual. your style is so much like art!

  10. you are a teenage daphne guiness!!!!! absolutely phenomenal! and like daphne you wear something extragravant like its jeans and a t-shirt, complete nonchalance and effortlessness.
    im curious, what was the reaction to what you wear at school?

  11. Lyn says:

    L.O.V.E the brogues. Seriously.

  12. You look so fucking rad Jane! Those jeans look great underneath it all and flats for a change still look totally epic.

  13. Eli says:

    wow, impressive. I would have never thought of those things together but they go very well

  14. Mai. says:

    loving the CDG skirt
    would have looked better with BIG heels… though I definitely love the shoes you wore!
    but positively FAB nonetheless :) we don’t have uniforms at my school, just a Very Very strict dress code, and so generally we all look rather Blah. every once in a while I break out the crazy heels or vintage dresses, but I would never have the thought to wear that!

  15. alexa says:

    i admire your courage!

  16. lilly says:

  17. lilly says:

  19. Ashton says:

    I love all your outfits actually :) but this one is very awesome. I love that bib from Urban Outfitters.

  24. Amy Williams says:

    Wow, you look fabulous, that skirt is incredible. And I can’t believe those jeans are UO, they look great.

  25. Amee says:

    Definitely a work of art! Gorgeous and well put together. I need to find the guts to dress up at school rather than just work and shopping.

  26. Hannah says:

    Jane-Couture, your style is gorgeous!

  27. Jamie says:

    I love it. They say no heels and you wear something they’ll never expect. Way to defy!

  28. it looks absolutely gorgeouse! love the skirt! you will leave them speech-less!

  29. Yi says:

    you don’t have to wear heels to look gorgeous! if i had your yohji yamahmoto shoes, i’d be smiling from ear to ear! i’m crazy bout them! you’re really inspiring..

  30. Angela says:

  31. michelle says:

    This is a little out there but totally gorgeous. you look a little like a ballerina! very nice

  32. haha I love it. I’d also love to know what people said about it at school! Definitely not the tradition civies outfit….

  33. Ané says:

  36. ediot says:

    you look stunning and unique

  37. Vix says:

    Completely agree with pret-a-porter. You are like a younger version of Daphne Guinness. Love what you decided to wear to school. So nice to see someone your age with so much confidence (and style!).

  38. Brigadeiro says:

    OMGosh, this is the most stunning amazing outfit to date! I would need a super party to wear this to, but your school gets to witness this in person, am so envious! That CDG skirt is just ethereal! I LOVE it! And as I said in a previous post, absolutely love that UO bib/top. *sigh* Just too gorgeous! Would love to know what everyone at school thought!!! Does anyone else dress-up like you? :)

  39. Brigadeiro says:

    PS. After staring at the pictures for ages, I managed to look at something other than the amazing outfit, that side table next to the armchair in the 1st picture is AMAZING! May I ask who it’s by? I must show this picture to my uncle (furniture designer), as he’d absolutely flip over it!

  40. caroline says:

    i want to steal your shoes!

  41. mattie says:

    i love those jeans and shoes

  42. mattie says:

    hi. please write back. are your shoes still available online. i am in love with them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. Becca says:

    you are perfection personified! Always stunning!

  44. tracy says:

    admittedly you pull it off better than the great majority, but this is too OTT even for you!

  45. clareassiral says:

    wow you look like you’re ready to work the runway! love the skirt

  46. Whimsykid says:

    I have a uniform at my school too, ergh. But even on no-uniform days I’ve never seen anyone dress as wild as you did! That’s pretty bold. I think heels would have gone perfectly with that outfit though, but I know what you mean about heel height rules…

  47. kirstie says:

    haha it’s weird seeing you in flats but as always you look fuckin awesome. those brogues are to DIE FOR!

  48. Wow what a brave choice, I love it!!!
    I just that that UO bib, I want one so badly.
    Love the brogues too.
    You go girl, it’s great to make a statement especially when you do it so well!

  49. Amelia says:

    I love the bib! The skirts and shoes are really cool-looking. This is a pretty awesome outfit.

  50. jamie says:

    i agree, very brave choice. i love this! thanks for never being boring!

  51. Raquel says:

    Beautiful Jane, you just raised the bar.

  52. Brigadeiro says:

    PPS> I would love to see a shot of your uniform! Growing up in Brazil I didn’t have a preppy uniform a la ‘Gossip Girls’, but wore: Adidas 3-striped navy tracksuit with white tee & sneakers, or in warmer weather the white tee was teamed with a pleated blue skirt…I’m sure yours must be much more stylish than that! :)

  53. Amelia says:

    i think everyone would like to see how you wear your uniform, i’m sure it’s crazy beautiful too :D

  54. valerie says:

    I love your outfit and your blog is amazing!!!

  55. tfs says:

    very editorial. i like it!

  56. Love your skirt. People at school will get impressed. Today I´m talking about your dad. Kisses.

  57. Pelin says:

    woooowww… like the other followers, I have been checking your blog daily. until this time, I’ve made lots of my friends your admirer all over the world. This morning when I saw this amazing, bold style, I, too, was like “this is something incredible!!!”. I want to try something like this among my Turkish engineers’ crowd.. they already think I am waaaay tooo crazy, anyways ;)

  58. cheng says:

  59. Christina says:
