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.

    You have an amazing eye of pairing up different textures.

    I think this is my favorite outfit that I’ve seen you wear. I love the proportions of everything – well done!

    Gorgeous outfit! You’re really workin’ it ;)

  10. M says:

    i love this outfit!! the mice belt is soo perfect! and the shoes are great!

  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.

  12. Wax says:

    you look gorgeous, as usual! ;)
    the mannequins seem spooky though, LOL.

  13. Camille says:

    This is beautiful and classy. I love the glamour of the look, paired with a messy bun.

  14. milly says:

    wonderful as always…love the shoes!

  15. Hui says:

    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.

  16. Kate says:

    I love the wide shoulders and the belted waist. Gorgeous.

  17. cassie says:

    really love the room you took pics in =)

  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.

  20. Jayde says:

    Heya Jane, i like the skirt..is it silk? anyways i don’t know if it’s just my browser..but i think there’s something wrong with your StyleBible.ph link..have a good day girl!:)

  21. Liana says:

    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.

  22. alixrose says:

    I love the whole outfit.. but those shoes are to die for!

  23. Amy says:

    I absolutely love your prada heels

  24. Amplified says:

    The look suits you Jane..And the Prada??
    Ahh..i want!
    Love from Singapore

  25. love the bolero …love the shoes.

  27. Saree Elias says:


  28. the belt is simply amazing. the heels are too shabby either;)

  29. eugenia says:

    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!

  30. Brittni says:

    Oh my gosh, I love these pictures, put it in a magazine and call it an editorial honey…this outfit is genius!

  31. you always look like a piece of ART. amazing pieces together!

  32. addison says:

    loveee the jacket and the skirt they are gorgeous together!

  33. christineL says:

    WHOA. ookay, not being a total creeper or anything, but were you at schroeder orthodontics today in southlake around 4:20ish?I had an appt. and I thought I saw you.. i’m pretty positive that was you because I remember you anthropologie skirt and yeah I only caught glimpse of the bolero, but the intricate detailing looked phenomenal.

  34. christineL says:

    oh, and I don’t remember all of the bangles, and that specific lace top?

  35. flutter says:

    You are seriously adorable. Your style is incredibly impressive

  36. The Minx says:

    ahh, I love how you wore this to the orthodontist! I think if I ever did anything so daring, my poor dentist would faint (he doesn’t have much imagination). Bravo :)

  37. Your skin is so perfect that i thought the second to last pic was your mannequin!!

  38. You should wear this to every appointment with anyone in the medical profession from now on.

  39. Connie says:

    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.

  40. James says:

    You’re the best-looking classiest girl I have ever laid eyes upon
    truly astounding, inspirational

  41. CC says:

  88. Kate says:

    For a second, I thought you had put the outfit on one of the mannequins and took a shot (in the last 2 pics)! You have lovely skin- sorry if that sounds a bit weird! I really like this look and the Pradas!

  89. Steph says:

    Okay, I must say I’m a huge fan of your style. You’re 16, and you blow my mind away. I’m also 16, and DEFF jealous of your abilities haha.
    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 :}

  90. I am insanely envious of your wardrobe!
    And that you can carry all of this stuff off… I couldn’t wear this stuff to University, and with the exception of the graphics students, everyone here studies fashion! Haha nevermind the dentist =/
    Thanks for being an inspirational dresser :) x
