Wearing Ann D sandal-boots

I've been spending some quality time with my Ann Demeulemeester sandal-boots since they arrived last weekend!
I ordered this floppy black hat from American Apparel after I did my hat post. I'm very happy with it, it can be so hard to find floppy hats.
Today I am also wearing a lace slip from Anthropologie (purchased years ago), a mohair Prada cardigan from F/W 07, a wrap scarf purchased in Tokyo, Alex and Chloe deer horn necklace
It's time for me to go to the meetup at Rugby! I am so excited, I can't wait to meet some of my readers.
xx jane

  9. Karen says:

    those shoes look awesome on you, not many can pull them off that well! and i love the floppy hat. looks great. have fun at rugby!

  10. I’ve wanted a floppy hat forever. I think I’m going to purchase this one from American Apparel as well – it’s just perfect. And, as you said, it is hard to find a decent floppy hat!

  11. suzy says:

    OMG LOVE LOVE LOVE THE SHOES. They look much better on than just on the pictures!!!!
    Plz More posts with the boots!!!
    Also could you tell me whether they wil look good with skinny jeans d u think, im not a big fan of dresses mostly a jeans person but would these boots go with jeans?????

  12. Annie says:

    How hard are those Ann D. shoes to walk in? The laces look a little painful, like they should be pinching into your skin or something.
    BTW, I love your blog!

  13. Niki says:

    Those boots are wicked. I adore them.

  14. Nadja says:

    Love your shoes!! I want to have them too. Like the dress also very much.

  24. some people really can’t wear hats, you really can! the mirror shot says i’m right. =)

  25. Gina says:

    One of my favorite outfits.

  26. I’m so jealous of the boots and the slip. I love how delicate the outfit is mixed with the black of the hat and the boots.

  27. Gigi says:

    Ahhh!!! I LOVE YOUR HAT!!!!!

  28. how i envied you with the boots and you look great in your whole outfit!

  29. Those A.D. lace ups look amazing on, especially with your pedicure! I’ve also been wearing a big floppy black hat ever since it landed in my showroom, and now I can’t live without it…

  30. gennie says:

    omg the shoes look amaaaaazing on!!!!!!! you seriously should’ve come up to new york for the barneys warehouse sale for the shoes!! they had so many things I know you and your mom would’ve loved :D

  31. erika says:

    omg those sandals are to die for… you paired them so well with the slip and cardi. as always, loving everything you are wearing. the hat is so you!

  32. gin says:

    i wanted to order that hat but was slightly unsure about the quality of it. i’m glad you like it, and i’m gonna be sure to order one soon. ;)

  33. Julia Wenck says:

    love the hat…I may have to get it myself! The shoes look amazing on you as always!!

  34. Absolutely beautiful. The floppy hat and of course the sandals are beauties.
    I always love when you wear cream/beige/nude. And i like how you anchor it with black. always amazing. i hope your rugby event goes well!

  35. Juliet says:

    Absolutely LOVEEE THE SHOES!!!
    I love the outfit too, very well worn!!
    Newly love with your blog!

  36. Camelia says:

    xxx, love ur blog!

  37. This is definitely one of my favorite looks of yours. I love all the creamy neutrals with the pop of the black hat and boots.

  38. Jane says:

    You look like a washed-up whore.

  39. Twin says:

    Oh my, those shoes are wonderful, as your entire outfit is! Hope your meet-up is fantastic!

  40. jennifer says:

    i think they look kinda gross to be honest, gross as in it almost makes me queasy. the boots are much easier on the eyes.

  41. Alice says:

    Lucky you ! You can wear sandals !! Here in quebec , canada forget that lol !!

  42. Avital says:

    I am in love with these boots.

  43. Ziling says:

    You look stunning, thats for sure.

  44. Gem says:

    That photo of you in the mirror is stunning Jane – WOW. The hat really highlights your beautiful bone structure!

  45. emily says:

  46. Fay says:

  49. xxxxxxxx says:

    Jane the shoes are ah-mazinggg, and your outfit looks great with the shoes!!!! I saw this and thought you might like it:

  50. Anelisa says:

    I had a dream that I was wearing these boots, and my friend told me that they were ugly. However, I think they’re kick-butt! My friend has no taste anyway, and she wears sweatshirts everyday. HmMmMm I also seeem to remember your hat making an appearance in my dream. It’s so weird, because I could perfectly imagine the feeling of the laces on my bere feet, and the snug-ness of the hat. I dig your blog the most. It inspires me to finally wear all the vintage clothing I have bought over the years, but have been to lethargic to wear. I’m declaring next week vintage clothing week, even though it’ll only be me participating. You’re a great writer, and vair fashionable. Keep it up!

  51. Call ME Cat says:

    I LOVE IT!
    ….WOW :)

  52. Nicole says:

    Looove the boots! I second Alice in saying no chance of getting (or affording) them here in Canada. I have been tempted to figure out a good DIY for those boots since you first posted them… I could see a faux leather converse-esque boot being doable… remove the tongue, trim and re-grommet the edges, replace laces with longer, thinner ones, or maybe a soft ribbon to be nice to the toes!

  53. Tiffany says:

    Can’t wait to see the blog you post about the Rugby event!

  54. Jen says:

    Perfect outfit. I love those shoes! Have fun today x

  55. Oh God.. your SHOES!! HEAVEN!!!!

  56. Tamia says:

    I love shoe quality time! Doing dishes, lounging on the couch, sitting at the desk…who says fab shoes shouldn’t be worn around the house?
    Must go check out the link to the meetup info…

  57. Shen-Shen says:

    I’m not completely sold on the shoes (your toes look a teensy bit squished) but I love that black hat!

  58. everything is so cute :)

  59. Stephanie says:

    ahhhh, those BOOTS!!! i can’t wait til mine arrive *sigh*.
    creamy neutrals are so lovely on you. :)

  60. Cherie says:

  63. Ruby says:

    Another Korean star is appreciating Ann D as well :)
    (I hope it’s Ann D)

  64. Amalia says:

    You remind so of Diane Keaton in Annie Hall. Beautiful.

  65. krista says:

    ah those Ann D boots are a dream!

  66. Sunset says:

    Those boots are ridiculous. They look more like a caged foundation for your feet than actual shoes!
    Just curious, how would you describe your own style?

  67. Fiona says:

    I love the shoes, and I especially love your hat!!

  79. lavy says:

    i’ve just discovered your blog, and it’s great. You have good taste, and you look good also…but does it make you happy? you got attention, readers, clothes and so on. aren’t you bored? I mean you make this pictures and they’re nice but you can’t go to school in such skirts and shoes..you only live your life at home with your clothes friends?

  80. michelle_ says:

    Just: I LOVE your shoes!!!!So rock’n’roll!!

  95. Stunning stuff. Love the shoes. Would have love to see the necklace.

  96. Hello!
    I would very much like to buy a pair of the puffy shorts that went with last years S/S 2009’s dress I bought.
    It is the rather grecian puffy wrap around with two strings mini dress that has the puffy shorts underneath it in black.
    Would you have a pair you would like to part with or know someone that does?

  97. The boots kind of finish up your whole look. The whole outfit is amazing and so is the framing of the picture :)

  98. Each misfortune I encounter will carry in it the seed of tomorrow’s good luck. I will remember the ancient law of averages and I will bend it to my good. Posed By gucci handbags

  99. Your shoes are really chic, as they do on facebook – “like”. I don’t know if it’s coincidental or not, but you’ve painted your nails so they match the shoes, one way or another good job Jane. Most sandals are ugly but comfortable, these are both.

  100. Jenny says:

    wow!! I just love those boots..completely stylish ones.
