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

    Very cool outfit! You didn’t get your shoes trampled on or anything? I never wear nice shoes to shows because I don’t want them to get ruined lol. Well I guess health doesn’t draw such a rowdy crowd? Anyways, lookin forward to your upcoming posts! :)

    Also, I wore an outfit vaguely inspired by sea of shoes the other day. Like, if sea of shoes was a poor graduate student.

    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!

    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

    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.
