A CRAZY VINTAGE BOLERO//so gaudy, i love it

Hanging out with my new girlfriends, the Mannequins!!
This Scott McClintock bolero is so gaudy and over-the-top in real life….it casts little disco ball reflections everywhere I go. It was an ebay purchase and I got it a long time ago but never wore it! 
I'm kind of in love with it right now….I wore this to the orthodontist though and my dentist looked a little amazed. Oh well.
Worn with various costume jewelry, F21 lace shirt, Rolling Hills skirt from Anthropolgie, a vintage belt with interlocking mice, and Prada spat heels.

  11. What impeccable style you’ve got!
    The shoes really are wonderful, though I can say the same for the lace shirt, jewelery, and bolero.

    I could never pull of an ensemble like that. In fact, I would never have known how to wear such an embellished bolero. But you’ve done a great job! It looks great.
    I love a lot of your skirts actually. They flare super nicely and the colours work very well. The spat heels are fab too.
    Lovely!

  18. Oh gosh! I think I have a nearly identical bolero, which I believe was made by Jessica McClintock (it came with a velvet dress and was from the 80s, but the dress didn’t fit).

  19. That bolero is ridiculous, in an awesome way. I’m way jealous.

    Jane–
    I have been reading your blog for quite some time and this is, by far, my favorite outfit you’ve ever worn. The use of the skirt with the bolero is perfection; the skirt compliments the gold on the bolero so very nicely. The shoes are amazing. I would love some of my own. The hair truly finishes off the look.
    I have loved reading your blog. Keep up the great style.

    Love the hair. Check out my latest post. I think the shoes are a more conceptual take on what you already have, and would look great w/ some Korean and Jap pieces in your closet.
    As always plenty of love to you and your lovely tastes!

    I saw a bolero almost similar to that at Buffalo Exchange. I was so tempted to buy it, but my boyfriend reminded me that every time I buy something over-the-top, it always ends up at the bottom of my closet.

    But I’ve got one favor to ask you. I was wondering if you would be interested in looking at my blog..I’m kinda new to this, and been busy ever since I started it, so it hasn’t really reached its full potential. But a look, and some feedback would be much appreciated :}
