I was very excited to check out the Y-3 store here and was not dissapointed. I took a picture of Ming, who works there because his outfit was so cool-don't you love his coat?




Today I met Chadd, the Senior Sales Assistant the Rick Owens Boutique here in New York. Isn't he amazing?? Jackie from V.O.D. here in Dallas told me to be on the lookout for him when I was in New York-Chadd is from Dallas too!


The Rick Owens store was incredible. My mom and I both attempted to try on those boots but neither of us could get our feet into them. Sigh.

^The boots that were impossible to put on :-(

^Today I'm wearing a Rick Owens coat (it's not new, my mom bought it last year and lent it to me for the trip, none of my coats are warm enough for NY), Y-3 pants, and my triple lace Ann Demeulemeester boots.

I'm leaving late tomorrow night for Philadelphia but I hope to check out some more stores that were on my hit list.
Thanks so much to everyone who reccomended restaurunts/shops!

  3. Brigadeiro says:

    Ming looks amazing! As do you, your gorgeous sister & mom (amazing outfits all-round, still cannot get over how amazing your mom’s leather jacket is)! Love all the outfits…I agree with Clemence on Chad, haha, cool outfit though!
    Your mom’s Rick Owens jacket you’re borrowing is equally amazing! How I would love to raid all your wardrobes ;)

  4. ming and chad look absolutely smashing although i cant help but think about how hard it would be to get out all that product in chad’s hair!
    the sea of shoes girls look lovely as per usual enjoy the remainder of your holiday.

  5. Alyssa says:

  9. Shen-Shen says:

    I love your mom’s jacket!
    Ming and Chad both look ridiculously awesome.

  10. connie says:

  11. Starr says:

    I’m so jealous of your rick owens!
    Looks like a fun trip. I’m currently going to school in Philly, hope you have fun <3

  12. Eden says:

    The first thing that came to mind when I saw Chad is “ANDY WARHOL”, haha.

  13. Katie says:

    that’s so awesome! i love ny. i can’t wait to see more pictures!

  14. laura says:

    Your outfit is perfection. You definitely fit into the Rick Owens aesthetic.
    Chadd reminds me of Edward scissor hands. Both his and Ming’s outfits look superb.
    Shame about the boots :( Maybe you would need to put flour all over your legs and feet to help slip into them???
    lots of love and admiration,
    Laura (

  15. Francesca says:

    Oh my god, Chadd is possibly the most frightening/coolest person on the face of the earth. Nice to see you’re visitng my neck of the woods, I hope you have a great trip!

  16. BLAIR says:

  19. christina d says:

    you and your family are very attractive
    i’m jealous of your trip to new york….. it’s been too long for me.
    and your rick owens coat !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. mattie says:

    nyc is amazing!!!! 95% of the people u see have incredibal style
    i can’t wait to go thier in march. last time i went i was clueless about what shops to go to as well as where to find them. i kept asking people where i can find this place and that place.

  21. william says:

    I heard you had a small photoshoot/interview with Teen Vogue.. doesn’t come as a surprise to me at all, though I did double take when my informant told me you were styled.

  22. ooh enjoy philly. i’m from there! goodwills and salvation armies are very good, i’ll be looking forward to hearing about your time here!!!!

  23. laura says:

    I’m curious to hear if you could actually walk around the city in those shoes. I love all your shoes but most of them seem like they mesh better with a driving world. That’s the rub of nyc…so many great shoes to buy…but you gotta walk a lot of blocks and take a lot of subways to get to them.

  24. Amy says:

    I hope you love Philly. I live here so e-mail if you need any suggestions!

  25. Becca says:

    you look fabulous. I love the rick owens coat.

  26. i love your mom’s grey jacket. ive seen it in person, i didnt try it but i could tell it was like butter.
    ming’s coat is stunning. and wow!! Chadd!!

  27. you and your mom are so cute –

  28. Katlin says:

    Ahhh those two guys have amazing style. I would just want to stare at them and inspect their clothes.

  35. a la mode says:

    Chadd looks incredible! Wow I am so jealous, New York is my favourite place in the world

  36. Karoline says:

    Hope you are enjoying NY! I feel affraid for Chad, he looks so pale and brittle….
    It´s a tad too theatrical and Edward scissorshands for me…Whom i do love, but in real life-not so much. Feels a bit try hardish, wich is never e good thing. The other guy looks much cooler and relaxed!

  37. erin says:

    I’m excited to see what you find in philly! I love it here and love it see how others like it.

  38. ainsley says:

    wtfff jane. how can you look so adorable in an AIRPORT? you and carol and your mom are looking like models there haha. i always look hungover or something when i travel.

  40. Amy Williams says:

    Love this post!
    All three of you look great, I just love the RO jacket you wore, the shape looks amazing at the back, and I’ll forever be in love with your mum’s Balenciaga!
    As for the SA’s, wow! Chadd looks incredible, so theatrical, just amazing.

  41. Chadd is one of the coolest cats that I know out there in NY. He is a good friend of mine, and has the COOLEST son!(think his son was crushin’ on my daughter for a while) Don’t let the visuals fool you. Sit down with him for a cuppa and you’ll find out. Glad you got to meet him.

  42. Marian says:

    Ming and Chad are super cool from the looks of it.Love that Rick Owens coat,your mum has great taste.glad that your enjoying your trip Jane.

  43. Marina says:

    P.S. Chad looks like Edward scissor hands!very fun!

  44. mary says:

    i love your Ann Demeulemeester boots !

  45. Gina says:

    So what did you, your Mom and sis buy in New York? I cannot wait to hear about all your purchases. You hit the city just in time for the great sales.
    By the way, note to Amy Williams above — Chadd has a son? OMG. I wasn’t even sure he was entirely human.

  46. justine says:

  47. eve says:

    Check out Leehee Fai while you’re in Philly. It’s about three blocks away from Joan Shepp. You’ll be able to get directions there.
    If you have time, check out the smaller boutiques in Old City…especially Lost+Found.
    Philly is an awesome city. I’ve lived here my whole life.

  48. Allie says:

    Ming looks great! Is it weird that I want to meet him?

  49. Stefania says:

    such a beautiful family!
    enjoy your holiday ;-)

  50. escritora says:

    fantastic ensembles :) your mum has wonderful leather jacket *envy* :)

  51. KD says:

    Chad is so intense!! Did you go to Allan & Suzi’s?!?!?! You must!!!!!!!!

  52. Looks like your having an ace time in N.Y, those boots are beautiful, shame they didn’t fit. Shop shop shop and shop some more! I found Century 21 quite a crazy shopping experience if your in the mood for rummaging for a bargain.

  53. Eli says:

    I love how your family photo is a combination of shades of black and grey!

  54. Lanvin says:

    Hi Jane,
    Thought you might like this little gem:
    In your size too I think?

  55. Jeunesse says:

    Your sister is so pretty. Well all of you are! Nice to see those Ann D boots again… love those heels!
    But I have to say… Chadd kinda crept me out. He looked like a hungry anemic hobo. Your Dad was right, he looked like tree, albeit with Chanel as leaves.
    Stay pretty. Ciao!

  56. kristin says:

    love everything but Chadd. man is creepy! and I’ve seen him in NYC too. the pic of the three of you in the airport is great!

  57. flashflash says:

    great outfits!!! if you want to see some street style in spain, visit us!

  58. emmy says:

    Rach: think the black jacket that Jane’s sister is wearing is Juicy couture (f/w 07 though)…

  59. Virginie says:

    J’aime beaucoup ton blog!

  60. Sophia K. says:

    You always look so amazing. This makes me miss going to NYC havent been in 2 years. Chad is a very interesting person wow I would have to take his picture as well. Keep blogging. Oh and not to sound strange but I have a ton of the same furniture as you (:

  61. dayna says:

    Isn’t NY freezing? I live in NJ and I’m NY at least two or three times a week, hehe. it looks like you had SO much fun. I’m jealous! you have more fun than I do when I’m there!
    I want to try those boots on.
    ahhh, amazing!

  62. ita-darling says:

    what kind of sunglasses does your mom wear? they are very nice. I have the same gray leather jacket!

  63. wow that sales associate is wicked cool!

  64. casey says:

    Those RO boots are amazing! I’m rather new to your blog but I enjoy it. I didn’t know you were from Dallas either, I’m originally from there too

  65. cheyenne says:

    chad is very pale. but very victorian. tim burtony with sumthin’ else. i like it :]
    have fun!

  66. wow i can’t imagine how you were able to walk around NYC in those boots! =) you look great! hope you’re having a great time there and that the cold gets better…

  67. Guru says:

    OOOOh I want that Balenciaga gray leather jacket so badly –

  68. BobDylan says:

    Chadd is the spawn of the devil, otherwise I love your outfits every single one of them!

  69. catherine says:

    i’ve tried on the rick boots and they are hard at first, but the more you put them on, that second layer of leather gets softer and more worn in, and it’s simple as pie to get them on later! keep working! they are so worth it! i love them and they’re sooo comfortable!

  70. the boots from the show is soo hot and the heels on yours is crazy.
    how do you afford all the designershoes??

  71. I want your mom’s gray Balenciaga leather jacket- if she ever wants to get rid of it- email me- before she sells on Ebay if she does or a consignment shop.

  72. Mavis says:
    Check it out..Winifred Lai(one of the fashion icons in Hong Kong) was wearing the RO boots. She said they are comfortable so even she was running around for her new book sharing functions in Beijing, she still could manage to wear them!
