Ever since my mom bought these vintage pieces home, I've been dying to put them together. I find something  intriguing about the flashy, tacky sequins (I mean tacky in a good way) and the cozy and classic tartan maxi. 
This piece is available for purchase on Atlantis if you're interested! Sorry about the confusion on the jacket last time. If you're interested in the skirt, email me or my mom!
Wow, I've gotten the nicest responses to the news interview-thanks everyone for your kind comments and emails, you're so sweet! I'm camera-shy when it comes to being filmed so it made me feel a lot better.
Anyway, I had lots of fun trying on these peices-it'll be sad to say goodbye to them!

    Hi Jane-
    Saw these Zanotti for Balmain fabulous bootie-shoes just now at shopbop.com and thought of you! They are a bit more vampy than some of your other lace-ups…still good though.
    Take care.

  22. Hui says:

    The tartan skirt has such a Vivienne Westwood vibe to it. Which is basically another way of saying I absolutely love it.
    I have no idea how you rocked the sequins, but you did. It’s pretty amazing. I fail massively when it comes to sequins. :/
    You were great on TV. Sweet, warm and absolutely charming. ;)

  50. jamie clare says:

    i would love for you to come over & put an outfit together from my closet. i’m sure it would be unlike anything i’ve ever thought of. also, i would probably be ridiculously excited that we were chillax’ing. hahahaha.
    love ittt. and i love that you can take shoes like the Ann D’s and unique vintage pieces and show how to make them totally wearable. you are an immensely talented young lady.

  51. christina says:

    I enjoy your website very much! I am in the process of publishing 2 books- one children’s and one fiction novel…and I pretty much only take time out to get inspired by your webpage! Can you help me with my closet?! Keep it up, girl, you’re doing great!

  52. Sarah says:

    love the tartan, and your blog!

  53. Tjordan says:

    Hi Jane! I have recently started reading your blog and I am obsessed. I am also from Dallas and I love vintage and thrifting. Years ago I would go thrifting in Dallas all the time and for some reason I stopped. Since I started reading your blog it lit a fire under me to start back. So far I have found some really great pieces at local consignment and thrift stores. Although we are polar opposites, being as though I am 27 year old mother and wife, and I happen to be African American, I totally connect with you on a crazy fashion-y level. You have been such an inspiration to me and have taught me to take risks with my fashion. Keep up the good work! Love the skirt and sequin top! I see that you are loving the crimping iron, so 80’s!

  54. Merel says:

    Hey Jane,
    Love the outfit!
    I was just wandering if you’ve seen the Celine “KIRARO sculptural wedge”.
    I saw it in the dutch Marie Claire and thought of you.
    Unfortunately it’s to expensive for me. But hey, maybe you like it!
    I’ve never seen a shoe before that has no middle part… Thought it was pretty cool.

  55. Clara says:

    AMAZING! i love your look!

  56. I am in Ireland this weekend. Wouldn’t that outfit be perfect for me?
    You are too cute!

  57. Maria says:


  58. Love the skirt. I’m Scottish so I’m always looking for fun plaid pieces.

  59. The 2nd
    and 4th
    are my favorite :)
    so Editorial worthy, Jane!!

  60. rachel says:

  64. Jessica says:

    you look great in red lips, and the outfits cute too!

  65. Great combo! Such a unique mix… :) P.S. congrats on the news interview!! it was great!

  66. Vinise says:

    great combination. who would have ‘thunked’ it!

  67. Bbb says:

    I usually find your stile interesting, but i must say this combination makes you look rather like a blond gipsy. :(
    And this skirt looks like an old woman’s folk table cover.
    I mean, one should not cross the line between avangard original and gipsy countryside…
    (i don’t mean to offend anybody, just commenting the outfit)

  68. ETL says:

    Super-fantastic combination of the sequins & tartan! And of course, beautiful pictures!

  69. Tara says:

    I love the mix of sequins with the more rustic plaid. gorgeous!!

  70. Ia says:

    Wow, the two pieces really balance each other up! The top makes the skirt a bit more glam and the skirt makes the top a bit more down to earth! Really like your shoes as well!

  71. cassiopeia says:

    they look uber-kwl together… immense. as always, u hit the stylenail on the head :-D

  72. Zoe the frenchie says:

    I like your style. I’ve never seen somebody clothed like you !
    I’m asking HOW do you pay for your shoes ? Does your parents buys them to you or you having a job ? How many pair of shoes do you have in your closet ?
    Awwww hope you’ll answer my questions !

    …so that I can live vicariously through you? or something? Plus, they’re kickass.
    I now have a strong urge to crimp my hair.

  84. Michael Anderson says:

    Who’s your photographer?? These pics are amazing. so are u.

  85. Emma says:

    Just to say that your blog is amazing and ever so sweet, and so are you. I tend to visit your blog when i’m feeling a bit down. It’s like entering a place filled with purity, beauty and sweetness, not from this world. However seeing the video clip made me realise that you are actually for real, and i truly admire how genuine you seem to be. You inspire me and, as you know, so many others. Thank you lovely. x

  86. Agnes says:

    Your shoes are to die for. How lucky were you to have a mom who wears the same size as you?
    BTW Camilla Skovgaard has some shoes that I think you’ll really like. Google her and you’ll see some buckle cut out heels that I’ve fantasied about endlessly.

  105. a.n.e says:

    love that mix match: sequins and wool.
    btw how do those ann d fit for sizing?

  106. Shawna says:
