2. My rhinestone necklace broke.
3. Got the lace top I'm wearing in the above pictures at F21 today…the bell sleeves totally killed me.

    oh my!!!! I’ve been lusting after those shoes for quite some time… Can’t wait to see how you wear them! Are they comfortable?

  2. william says:

    I’m quite excited to see you wear these! Any chance you or Judy will be getting the white version with the exposed heel, as well?

  3. That lace top is just beautiful…can’t even tell it comes from Forever 21. Also, I can’t wait to see you wear those sandals/lace-up boots.

  4. Patricia Ann says:

    Those shoes are a beauty! Isn’t it so sad when things break? I absolutely get sad when I lose parts of a necklace because of a weak chain. :(

  5. brigadeiro says:

    Oh my! Those Ann D.’s are 2D4! Am looking forward to more posts on them ;)

  6. Eva says:

    Those lace up boots are heaven. I tried on that lace top at Forever 21 yesterday but didn’t end up getting it. Looks great on you!

  7. Rikki Lane says:

  14. Nubby says:

  24. Olya says:

    Please please can you tell us how they run? Also, where did you get them from? I’m thinking of ordering them from Can’ find them anywhere else online, and on saks they are on pre-order. I’m size 9 which size should I order? I’d really appreciate your feedback.

  25. Mandi says:

    I love love love these shoes! I just finished making my first pair of shoes today for my shoe design course! you should have a look!

  26. lucille says:

    OOh gosh … you look so great !
    I can’t say nothing !

  27. Sunset says:

    It’s probably just because the photos aren’t too clear, but I love your clothing here way more than the boots! Maybe I’m just a sucker for lace. Great f21 find though!

  28. Karen says:

    they look awesome so far, cant wait for more pics!

  29. ohphilippa says:

    fan-freaking-tastic! sorry about your necklace

  30. Yoshi says:

    I’m still lusting over the triple lace knee high boots. Ann’s designs never fail to impress.
    Congrats on getting those!! I’m sure you’ll enjoy them. ;)
    As for the necklace, I really feel for you. I’m terrible with jewelry, a complete squander. My cartier love chain necklace tore apart a number of 5 times! I’ve lost 2 rings in a cab, on different occasions, both of which belonging to my grandmother and handed over to me. I’ve left bracelets in powder rooms in London and not even realize until my next visit when the cleaning lady mentions it and gives them back to me. I’ll stop at that! =)
    I’m sure you can have it repaired though, right?

  31. a.n.e says:

    oooo cravings…..not for food but better shoes!! love the boot/lace thing.

  32. modejunkie says:

    welcome home new shoes!

  33. farren says:

    i am so JEALOUS! ugh. i’ve been lusting after those ever since they popped up on and i’ve been trying to rationalize in my head why i need them and how i am going to max out my credit card for them. they are so amazing. but now i’m thrown off becaues the backless white ones are aewsome too!

  34. tanya says:

    thanks Amee!

  35. The Lace top looks fantastic and look forward to seeing the shoes on you.

  36. Vintage Tea says:

    Cant wait to see them on you. Im sure they will look absolutely wonderful!
    Please check out

  37. keren says:

    How great I bet they’ll look on you! :)

  38. anne says:

    olya–I’m not jane, just a reader, but these sandal boots run true to size. I am a 38 (ie us 8) in alaia, chloe, prada, etc, and I have these in a 38 as well. I got mine from saks. I have also seen them on and joan shepp. I believe you could get them from browns if you telephoned–they are not on browns website but I have seen them in browns’ ads.

  39. Bridget says:

    It’s really hard to get rhinestone jewelry repaired since it is usually not made with gold or silver (as in, normal jewelry stores will not do the work for you…at least the 6 or so stores I have asked). Your best bet is to make friends with a local artisan jeweler and see what they can do. Your other option is to just hand the piece over to someone who remakes vintage pieces and see what they do with it (which is really cool, but depending on how bad the break is, I’d go with the former option).

  40. Winnie says:

    Wow, can’t wait to see them on, they look gorgeous.

  41. Those shoes look gorgeous! Can’t wait for a better pic!

  42. YLM-SPAIN says:

    You look really pretty. The sandal-boots are wonderfull!!

  43. iole says:

  45. Leia says:

    Love that top! Wish there was a F21 store in London. And I’m sorry about your necklace :( x

  46. Brianne says:

    Those Ann D’s are phenomenal!
    I seriously want that lace top..
    is it on the website? Because I tried to find it but I couldn’t..

  47. Dewi Utari says:

    The boots amazing…i’m jealous of you…I wish I get one of those:(
    check my blog for some shoes as well

  48. fff says:

  49. Stefania says:

    you have probably single-handedly increased her sales 300 fold ;-)
    très chic.

  50. Adeliet says:

    Love those shoes!!! Model them please! How much and where did you get them from? Thanks in advance!
    Love, Adeliet

  51. D says:

    I’m just curious… how do you afford all these expensive shoes? I’m 24, work two jobs and still can’t afford to spend even $400 on shoes, let alone $700+. Do you find deals? Can you tell your readers like me how to do so? I think you have impeccable shoe taste.

  52. lucky gal. these are being heralded as “the shoe of the season.”
    really liking the lace top!

  53. DreamyGirl22 says:

    I absolutely love Forever 21! I have to drive 45 minutes just to get to it, but it’s always worth the trip once I’m there. It’s hard not to find a good deal when you’re in that store….usually great prices for amazing stuff!

  54. Punkie says:

    wow this shoes are something special!! so beautiful… you’re so lucky! I would like to have all of your gorgeous shoes! :D

  55. Olya says:

    anne – thanks so much! now that i know my size, i will try to phone brown’s and see if i can order over the phone.
    smart move buying from saks early… not only they are not expecting to ship the pre-ordered ones until june, i believe the price has gone up by $100 as well.
    thank you!!!

  56. Stephanie says:

    Oooo, those boots….I just pre-ordered two pairs, in black and white! Unfortunately, the estimated date for my black pair is sometime in June!

  57. jeyda says:

    I love your shoes!! I tried looking for them on Ebay but i couldn’t find em any suggestions?

  58. Larae says:

    You look adorable as usual Jane! I got mine 2 weeks ago from monamoore. They might still have them if any of you want to give them a call. They are truly amazing! I can’t wait until it stops raining in LA to wear em!

  59. Antonia says:

    SHUT UP.
    those ann d’s are HOT FIRE

  60. Lucky girl :)
    I love your top!
    I wish they had a Forever21 in London…
    Hope you don’t mind but I’ve kind of featured you at the side of my blog as ‘inspiring me right now’ – I actually havent come across anyone with such great instinctive style as you in a long time! You will be very successful in the future, I know that for sure.
    So thanks for inspiring me and being original and all that blah haha

    I need to snap them up before they sell out!!

  62. Becca says:

    I am loving those – I was wondering when they’d be available – good to know they’re finally out! Can’t wait to see how you style them.

  63. Melanie says:

    That’s an amazing top, I would have never guessed Forever21. That place is just like a vintage/thrift store, if you dig and dig and dig, you can find something amazing.

  64. Sarah says:

    I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

  67. Carson says:

    These shots are so good. I can’t wait to see the shoes on you.

  68. roselxx says:

    Hey, Jane! I was just thinking what to wear w/ the shoes, and this amazing idea just popped into my head — wear them w/ colorful knitted socks, just like how she did(!!!

  69. roselxx says:
    I mean this! You should take a look! Even though they are not the same shoes.

  70. Jinah says:

    OH so amazing. I’m jealous! I’m tempted to chip my credit card out of the ice I froze it into the order these…

  71. eroticorange says:

    wow, i didn’t think that it would be easy to pull off that lace top when i saw it at the store but after seeing you wear it i think that i need to get one myself! always love your style. thanks for the inspiration. =)
