new thrifted leather pants

Yesterday when I left for school my mom was getting all excited because one of our favorite thrift stores was having a leather sale. She was like, "I'm going to get us sooooo many leather pants, Jane!!!" 
I wish I didn't have school so I could have gone too!
But when I got home from school my mom had bags and bags of leather pants. LOL.

Some of them turned out to be definite 'no's but this pair was a definite keeper.
(Also keepesr: cute oversized leather shorts and my mom got this amazing pair of leather culottes that look SO good with her Ann D's)
Leather pants worn with patent Alaia studded gladiators, a borrowed wool coat, AA tank and Alex and Chloe deerhorn neckace+my own cross
pics of other finds to come soon!
Gotta go to school now but maybe some of the leather pants my mom got will make it to the up-and-coming vintage store :)

    Great outfit! I always find myself admiring the couch (daybed?) when you pose on it. It looks so comfortable with all the fur :)I’d love to see more pictures of this pair of pants- they look really cool.

    Ooooh, jealousy is a sin right?
    I adore leather pants, in most shapes and forms. Nothing better than a thrifted pair too :)
    The ones in these shots are fabulous. Love them!

    hilarious – musta been leather pants day as i bought a pair at the thrift yesterday too! sadly mine turned out too small. i was really hoping they’d fit like yours there.. but they will soon be a lovely purse and the sleeves to a crocheted sweater:D
    can’t wait to see if/what your mom does with the “no’s.” her refashions are always inspiring.

  7. pac says:

    This is definitely a gorgeous outfit – those sandals are some of my favorites! Alexander McQueen for Target just came out today (I believe…) and I saw this and immediately thought of you:
    the Alexander McQueen@ for Target Jumpsuit – Ebony

    I remember you doing a post some time back about jumpsuits from Target and only owning a few jumpsuits – just wondering if you’d like to see or if you already knew about this!
    Alexander McQueen for Target! How exciting :)

    Hi, I love your style and have your blog in my daily bloglovin list. I am very curios about your furniture/interior decoration. I find it very stylish and tasteful. Would you like to tell us where you bought and how did you find your home items (carpet, antique armchairs, tables, pillows, fur cover, etc..)?
    Thank you, and take care :*

  57. Oh..having a bed next to the fireplace!

    My computer wasn’t cooperating with the link to your email, so I thought I’d just post here instead. Elizabeth and James’ new lookbook features a giant blow-up dinosaur, so naturally I thought you had to see it! Love your blog.

    I think I’ve checked back 12 HUNDRED times to see the promised “more pictures” and still , sadly, NONE.
    …..but, I love the way you dress.
    Your clothes speak to me.
    I can feel your mood and your personality.
    And I think its amazing you exspress it so well!
    I love this blog and your poetic, creative mind;
    please never stop.
    What would we do?
    Love,
    Noelle

  65. hanako66 says:

    You look so amazing!!! I am so glad that I found your blog!

  66. Victoria C says:

    I love the way you cuffed the leather pants! you look great xxo

  67. it’s very easy for leather pants to be so wrong. as ever, you get them so right.
    i can’t believe you’re only 17, your style has the sophistication of someone much older. without ever looking like a young girl wearing clothes that are too old for her.
    i’m gushing a little but you really do deserve all the recognition you get.

  68. Annie says:

    Hi Jane! Where do you do your vintage shopping? I live in Dallas and would love to be let in on your secret!

  69. lilly! says:

    wtf u look stupid.no style at all, just a little girl trying 2 play dress up.do u have any friends at all or are your friends your expensive designer you suck.money doesnt buy style.

  70. Sarah says:

    its sooo cute and looks comfortable!! For me, it can be worn wherever! i love the neutral shades of color and they all complement each other… i adooooooore your hat!
    btw, you look so fit!
