Cute little thrifted jacket w/ new silk boxing shorts

This little 80's jacket my mom picked up at Salvation Army on Tuesday is killer. I'm so into it! Sadly it is not mine for keeps. Expect to see this cutie on the vintage site soon.
I love wearing these little bandage tube tops in the summer-I got mine at Mango last year.
I had fun playing with it though.
These glasses were purchased at Buffalo Exchange in Austin for eight dollars. Kinda goofy but a little bit good too I think. Speaking of goofy, aren't I great at doing my hair? Oh geez…
Givenchy wedges…oops is that a blister I see? Ouch. Whatever.
Whoever gets this jacket is a lucky lady. It'll be up next week I think. I'm not in charge of that stuff so I don't know for sure.
The silk boxing shorts are Dries van Noten-purchased at By George in Austin. I'm in love with them! I'm thinking they will be perfect for Tokyo this summer-they're light and airy and perfect for humid weather.
My mom used to sell to By George back when she had her line. I'm going back to By George soon and can't wait to do a post on their amazing store.
*I realize I am way, way behind on my email-hopefully I'll get back to them soon. Things are so crazy with the school and the blog. Seems like they are constantly at odds. Gotta budget my time carefully. I have so much homework due next week not to mention a scary, scary test. (DP Biology…shudder…anyone who's ever taken a higher level IB Biology course knows what I mean)

    I’m loving everything except the color of the bandage top with the rest of it. I’m not really feeling the red with the colors in the jacket. Just my two cents, but I’d probably have gone with black, or a color that contrasted with the pink of the jacket.

  4. Ally says:

    This is one of my favorite outfits of yours. Very cool.

  5. styledrop says:

    Cool shades. And the jacket is great too. Sorry you can’t keep it!

  6. ashley says:

    very nagel-esque, no?
    and Dries just keeps getting better.

  7. chelsea says:

    The jacket is so great. I also love your lipstick in these photos, it’s a super-flattering color on you!

  8. anna says:

    Yeah! IB! Rock on! This is my first comment despite lurking for ages, but just wanted to say I love your blog and that jacket is amazing.

  9. Sally says:

    wow, i love this outfit. and it’s thrifted too! so original with a vintage flair.

  10. Nini Nguyen says:

    Cute short Jane!!!!

  11. madeline says:

    I was just at those stores in Austin. I thought the buffalo had some great stuff. being from chicago, it had the perfect amount of texas vintage to bring home as a souvenir instead of typical souvenir things.

  12. stephanie says:

    Sharp, edgy jacket…Love it!
    I used to teach DP Art at an international IB school. As you know, it’s very challenging, but such a good program. I feel for you. Good luck w/ the test!

  13. najeema says:

    I really love that jacket! If I wasn’t budgeting, I’d be anxiously waiting for it to show up for sale. And I think the glasses rock. You should keep them because such few people could pull them off.

  14. Stephanie says:

    I love everything about this outfit…but those shorts are perfection.
    Looking lovely as usual.

  15. Angie says:

    IB Biology *gags* i know EXACTLY what you mean – imagine I’m doing Biology AND Chemistry
    But anyway, the jacket is undescribable very retro futuristic *thumbs up*

  16. sd says:

    oh shoot you know IB!!!!!!!!!!!!
    wow i feel less alone in the stress
    I took it this year (junior) and it’s seriously the most nerve wrecking class in the world
    i go to school sick as hell just b/c i know if i miss a day ima be screwed for the whole grading period
    i’m so glad i’m dropping it next year
    everything else i’m keeping (uh..except math, moving from HL to SL…i’m not a math person :/ )
    and i want those glasses!

  17. Mataya says:

    HL Bio?! you’re crazy girl! I’m doing SL Chem lol
    HL English, Spanish & History. piece of cake =]

  18. Mataya says:

    & I am now motivated to go to salvation army this weekend lol
    that jacket is killer!

  19. Julia says:

    what a great find!! Im a major thrifter and I am jealous :)

  20. Bridget says:

    Good luck on your biology exam – I wasn’t in the IB program during high school, but I now do lab work as a graduate student in biology (well, bioengineering, but close enough!) …all day every day. I love it, but it makes my clothing quite on the boring side. Ah well. I live for days off that are far and few between…
    Also – my best trick for blisters is using liquid bandage before even putting my shoes on! Works wonders :)

  21. autumn says:

    It goes without saying that you always look amazing and absolutely stunning.
    I love your lipstick! What is the shade/brand?

  22. Carolyn says:

    yuck – i remember IB! i was an IB diploma graduate way back in the day ;-) good luck!
    love that jacket with the new silk shorts! by george is FABULOUS and i’m so glad you got to visit Buffalo Exchange too!

  23. Shannon says:

    Grey and pink! A delicious combination. And with the sharp lines and smart lapels, that really is an awesome jacket.
    Congrats to whoever gets their hands on it!

  36. brigadeiro says:

    OMG, those shoes are just 2D4! Was so upset when I thought I bought the Dries Van Noten multicoloured (blue) sandals from By George online, only to be told several days after I ‘purchased’ them that they sold out :( They stock awesome stuff though! Would love to see the store IRL!

  37. Frida says:

  54. Jill says:

    By George is one of my favorite Austin haunts. We have a house in Marble Falls…outside of Austin. I bitch and moan until we take our detour so I can see what’s new at ByG.

  55. Ann says:

  99. Justine says:

    I love that you shopped at Buffalo Exchange and By George.. I live in Austin and attend UT (and was also at sxsw)! Someone asked to take my picture for and I thought it was awesome… I would have been just as proud to be on your blog though! You really put things together amazingly and creatively.. keep on keep on

  100. Hi Jane,
    Not sure if you’ve seen any of my comments on your blog previously, but just want to know – does red really go with pink? Is it a crime to pair red and pink? I’ve always find it weird pairing red and pink and to see you have a red (more to orange-ish red) with pink blazer (they’re hot!) I wonder if it’s actually okay to pair those two great colors together.. (I’m a dark colored Asian so I get paranoid a lot.Eek! )
    I might not be able to check this again on your blog due to many comments you receive and it’ll take forever to load this page up, but do you mind replying this on my email instead? thanks lovely, you’re sweet.

  101. omg perfect.. you leave me without words!

  102. Carlijn says:

    The whole outfit is great, the shoes, blazer and pants, love it!

  105. aisha says:

  107. Beautiful pictures shared by you with wonderful fashion and pattern. The cloth color is really very attractive.
