Back from Austin-my concert outfit

I wore this outfit on Friday night to go see some shows and I liked wearing it so much that I decided to wear it again on Saturday night to go see Health, the Mae Shi and some others at Mohawk's. I trekked all over town in this. The Ann D's are pretty good walking shoes.
The skirt is Dries van Noten from the mid-eighties. It used to be my moms. It was from one of his first collections, Korshak was one of the first to pick him up. I feel very very very lucky to have it. What a knock-out piece. Worn with Ann Demeulemeester sandal-boots and a mongolian lamb fur vest.
Just got back from Austin tonight-I have so much to blog. I'll probably spend all of next week recapping all of the amazing stores I got to see and the cool people I got to meet, plus some exciting new purchases. Austin shopping is so ridiculously good.

It was so nice meeting some of my readers while I was in Austin! Thanks for saying hi, hope I see you again soon. In fact I probably will-planning on going back to Austin next month.
xx jane

  30. ashley says:

    the skirt is just beautiful! Dries has been growing on me for the past few seasons. like growing in leaps and bounds.
    Health is coming here next week as part of GFL, wha whaaaat?!
    Also, I wore an outfit vaguely inspired by sea of shoes the other day. Like, if sea of shoes was a poor graduate student.
    check it out if you get a min.

  42. tess says:

  49. vintage Tea says:

    You look gorgeous! love the long skirt, very elegant
    Click here to visit me at Vintage Tea!

  50. You really know how to channel a certain look with a completely modern/fresh take.
    I was wondering if you could explain the origins of your lamb skin vest? Are they hard to find. I think it makes the outfit. The dries skirt is also incredible!
    I just love the way you have such an innate sense of style and the courage to walk around with complete confidence in your style. You are one of a kind and forever an inspiration.
    Your styling really have been getting better and better!

  51. martha says:

    totally awesome. I love your hat and your hair.

  52. amy says:

    great blog! love your style and of course your SHOES!! rock on, girl!

  53. Lauren says:

    I love the vest, I am a sucker for anything furry haha :)

  54. Laura says:

    i loooooooooooooooooooooooove the ann d boots i can’t wait for mine to get here
    im amazed at how comfy they were when i tried them on in the store, its good to know theyre also good for walking around – it will give me another reason to never take them off my feet!

  55. Linda says:

    i love how your charisma shows through your outfits

  56. My Best Friend Mindy met you in Austin this weekend!! She said you looked stunning… We are avid readers of yours. Truly an inspiration. Thank you for that!!

  57. Carol says:

    Jane, these pictures (as generally all of yours :) are just amazing ! ! ! ! ! – I really like how you’re expressing all the moods you have by each of the outfits.
    Best greetings from a fan from Zurich :) – we have lots of great shops for fashionistas and vintage’istas here – – or – just a city to dive to. .. hope to see you some day around ^_^

  58. Lauren says:

    That vest is glorious.

  59. christing says:

    this outfit is sooo amazing! i love it all! perfect hippie look!!!

  60. michelle says:

    not so nice, I think. I much prefer your streamlined silhouette. I think it’s the combination- your recent mismatched numbers with the hat make you look like a confused witch.
    great shoes though, Ann D + Dries + Margiela make me really excited to be going to Antwerp on exchange

  61. H says:

    you wore that to see shows? Oh dear. At least if it was a remotely pleasing ensemble it’d be ok, but the fact that it looks pretty bad (and not in a ‘oh, cool – so eclectic & ironic!’ way) and is totally impracticle and attention-grabbing in an obnoxious way makes it look utterly ridiculous. Just my two cents. Of course your rabid fans will be all over it.

  62. Penny says:

    :) I was surprised when I saw that u wore THAT outfit! When I saw Tokyo Police Club a couple of years ago there, people spilled beer on my shoes….but then I realized–you’re too young to be around the beer spiller people! I’ll have to see some shows sanz trashed co-eds when I get back up to Austin :) wish I was at SXSW–darn u work!!!!

  63. alice says:

    oh wow so cool outfit !! Everything is so put together !

  64. Mae Shi! YES!
    Love the fur.

  65. laura says:

    please show more outfits with A.D. lace ups!

  66. kajsa says:

    very nice outfit!

  67. Sylvie says:

    Oh, sorry but these shoes are really ugly! And it is a shame because they surely cost a fortune! Do you imagine all the useful things you could have done with the money instead…

  68. Jessica says:

    this outfit is perfection!! love the whole look from head to toe!! you’re fabulous as always!! :D

  69. hanako66 says:

    you look amazing!

  70. Hoa says:

    you are such a rock star! fashionably speaking of course!

  71. Becca says:

    I love the whole look – but that skirt kills me! INCREDIBLE.

  72. rachael says:

    jesus, did you not burn up?
    i gave up on trying to look good after i got to sxsw thursday, i definitely wore jorts and a plaid shirt the whole time. the difference in weather between dallas and austin amazes me….
    anywho, very beautiful.
    i’m glad someone in dallas my age knows whats up!

  73. Alice says:

    SXSW is pure fun! :)
    you must recommend some good shops in Austin! :) even though I’ve been living here for a while now, I haven’t explored it nearly enough… come back and visit soon!

  74. jamie clare says:

    i have been searching the world over for a shaggy fur vest, and here you are in gorgeous clothes AND the vest of my dreams? color me jealous.
    if it goes missing, i have nothing to do with it. =]

  75. hkShoeGeek says:

  87. Isis says:

    Great Blog!

  88. Ebony says:

    As an Austinite, I’m anxious to hear about your cool finds. I loved SXSW, your outfit is lovely. It was refreshing to see all the visiting fashionistas like yourself about town over the weekend, aside from the Austin casual cool or hipster looks.

  89. AK says:

    such a badass outfit! LOVE IT!

  90. F says:

    The lamb vest makes me sad :(
    When you have a lamb yourself you can just cry at the thought of it being turned into a vest.

  91. Kelley says:

    Wow, we very nearly bumped into each other. I was at Mohawk for a little bit, but I left to get a cupcake and then decided to see the show at Radio Room instead.

  92. Cody says:

    I don’t know you, but I totally walked passed you that night!
    I said ‘hey’, but no hello back — and further down the sidewalk someone commented on how nuts it was to be wearing that.
    Anyhow, I thought it was awesome, and great blog!!

  93. Those shoes are insanely beautiful!

  94. megan says:

    fur is disgusting.
    your so nice and heartless.
