Hi from Austin-quick outfit post.

I've been running around Austin like crazy today!
Been shopping a lot too…whoops..
My mom and my sister are at home. It's just me and my dad here in Austin. He's so patient with me. He doesn't even mind when I ask him annoying girl questions-"Did I get my legs too orange??" "Should I roll my pants up or leave them uncuffed??" "Can you see my underwear through this??" 
Thanks dad, you're rad….
 It's so crazy here! Traffic and everything…still not precisely sure what I'm going to do tonight! So many shows but its kinda hard when you're not over 21 (or 18!! bah!) 
Anyways I've got such great things to blog about! But I'm running short on time so I'll hold off on that stuff. For now, here is what I wore today. I'm standing outside of Feathers vintage boutique, one of my favorite stops here in Austin! I'll be back there tomorrow too to meet the owners and check out new stuff. Fun!
Oops I snagged my shirt. Oh, drats. Wearing a bell sleeve lace shirt from Forever 21, green silk organza skirt from Anthropologie, a belt from my mom's old store in the eighties, Alex and Chloe deerhorn necklace with an old cross, American Apparel hat, and Givenchy wedges.
Sorry for posting outfits with this hat so much.
I really love this hat though. Confession: today I picked up the brown and the grey versions of this hat too. Whoops. Looks like you'll be seeing more of them, if youre a regular Sea of Shoes reader…
To make this post more worth your while, here are some really really cute dogs.
I met them today when I met up with Esti Choi in her new store, Buy Definition. Expect a post about this amazing treasure trove in the next few days! 
Must get going!
xx jane

  28. I live in Austin and am seriously considering going to Feathers tomorrow and stalking you from behind the racks haha. You’ll probably be really freaked out when you read this : don’t worry I’m just a 17 year old girl! I know I have been turned down twice this SXSW it sucks not being 18/21. Hopefully I’ll work up the nerve to go see you tomorrow!

  29. great outfit. You dress so nicely considering you’re so young. Unlike some teenage blogs you see out there, wearing almost nothing. You are sophistication. I love your style.

    Now Jane…The hat is beautiful, absolutely stunning, but you you really need to look into getting some rabbit felt versions. I have one in orange, with a bit wider of a brim, and compared to any wool ones I have ever tried on, it is spectacular. Mine is from a craftsman, a proper hatter, in Florence called Boutique Nadine… The rabbit hats also last much longer, long enough so that you could, theoretically, give them to your children. No doubt the American Apparel version is inexpensive, but I think you would really love the effect of the rabbit version. I’ll snap a photo for you.
    As always, I love your blog and your posts, keep it up!

    awesome! the feathers girls are friends of mine! when you’ve been in the thrifting resale trade in this town long enough you end up knowing/working with everyone at some point.
    like i mentioned to you before, would love a list of your fave places in Austin to shop!
    i know being under 21 is a bummer at SXSW but Yelle at Emos tonight and Kanye at the Fader fort…i’m sure your know someone who can get you past the door :)
    good luck!

  49. This will not help with the extreme shopping wants but I love this boutique. I’ve been living in Austin for almost 20 years and it’s still my favorite shop.

    High end gorgeous boutique. From runway designs to local favorites like HerffChristiansen. A true gem of the city. Great for browsing after lunch at the local Whole Foods Flagship location. Fantastic accessory collection.

    HEY Jane, check this out —
    Flannels is a legit UK designer store and I was just looking on their website (they ship worldwide) and they have some crazy sale reduced Prada and Miu Miu footwear, including stuff from a few seasons back, at 50% off, and in a good range of sizes..
    The rest of their stock is kind of tacky (Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana) because they cater to a non-London crowd of rich brand addicts, but this is really good value Prada + Miu Miu stuff..
