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!
xo Jane

    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.

    The tartan skirt has such a Vivienne Westwood vibe to it. Which is basically another way of saying I absolutely love it.

    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!
