The week in review…

Something awful happened to my camera this week! My D80's light meter went haywire-I took it to the shop and it's going to have to be worked on there for a while. 
Kind of frustrating, because when I asked how long it was going to take they said something like, "Uhh…don't know, m'am…anywhere from 1 week to 2 months." Alrighty then…so we'll see when I get it back.
Oh yea-In addition to computer failure and camera failure, add "biology test" to my list of failures this week.  Oh man….
All of these crappy things could have made this a really bad week, but today is definitely making up for it.
Tonight I'm gonna see Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti at Hailey's tonight-I've been looking forward to this for a while. Cool shows also mean cool outfit opportunities. I haven't finalized my outfit yet but I'm thinking something with these things:
– Fur collar from Boulevards Boutique in Tulsa, Oklahoma
– Vintage pyramid necklace
– Junya Watanabe gold and green striped cardigan-the armholes, cuffs, and collar are attached with safety pins
– Crimped hair…just got a crimping iron and it's addictive. Hair straighteners, blow dries, curling irons are impossible for me to use. Crimping wands are totally fool proof and fabulous in a Kelly Wearstler/batty biddy sorta way.
Okay I promise no more webcam pictures, I was just lazy today and at loss without my D80.
Oh, and meet my new Margiela degradé cowboy boots. 

There is something about these boots that I find wierdly symbolic and compelling-I don't know, sort of like something from a David Lynch movie. I have to do a post about these boots and everything they embody tomorrow. So expect more detail soon. 
I had the most exciting email on Friday morning-from Danny Roberts of Igor and Andre.
I'm sure you're familiar with his work-he does beautiful portraits of models and has also immortalized the likes of Karoline and Rumi in his blogger portrait series.
He did this beautiful picture of me-thank you so much Danny!
So all of that scratch that-I didn't have a bad week. Nope, not at all…I've had an awesome week!
And tonight it's gonna get even better. So excited!
Okay I'm going to go crimp my hair some more and maybe do a little studying for biology…then to go see Ariel Pink!

    I’ve been looking for a crimping iron to make beachy waves, but have only found ones that give me that horrible early-90s throw-back look. Which one are you using?
    PS: LOVE the blog.

  15. Madelene says:

    I like these pictures! Variety is good, nevermind if the ‘quality’ is less excellent.

  16. My goodness, Jane! I’m eyeing on these boots, too! I just got Margiela Tabi heels and flats and was thinking of holding off on buying stuff this month, but I kept going to the website and drool over these boots. We have similar taste although you’re much younger than me…LOL…

  17. Libby says:

    Hope your camera works soon, i love all your outfit posts very inspiring! And that picture is so pretty, looks exactly like you.

  21. deltay says:

    Whoa, intense outfit! And those books are definitely something.

  24. from london with love says:

    i just wanted to say that your blog is a breath of fresh air. you see a lot of ‘fashion’ blogs out there that are more so about self-promotion and incredibly vain pursuits (ahem, rumi), but i think all of us readers out there in cyberspace can really tell you that have an innate love and passion for clothes, looks and all things fashion. you keep it real.
    dont let your camera get you down. stay smiling.

  25. Caroline says:

    lovely portrait :) love his work.

  26. Marta, Poland says:

    podziwiam Twój blog tak samo, jak chyba wszyscy ludzie, którzy tutaj wchodzą. Masz już fanów na całym świecie, czego dowodem jestem ja ;). Życzę Ci dalszej inwencji twórczej! Pozdrawiam

  27. Soraya says:

    I had exactly the same thought when i first saw those boots, they are so David Lynch.
    Please post some outfits with the boots, can’t wait to see how you will wear them.

  28. Ava says:

  39. gynnephur says:

    i was at ariel pink’s show last night! i drove down from tulsa with a buddy to see it. loved vivian girls but ariel pink’s set was really quite impressive, especially considering he wasn’t feeling well! <3
    i'm gonna post some of my crappy pictures and videos from the show soon.

  40. sweet tease says:

    fffuuun!! my boyfriend introduced me to ariel pink.. i’ve been giving Oddities Sodomies Vol. 1 a listen for a while, and i hate to say but its kinda hard for me to get into! altho i hear it is all about the live music.
    also- ariel pink.. kinda synonymous with paw tracks. i suggest you check out my friend- ‘dent may & his magnificent ukulele’, who is on that label. have fuuun!

  41. Cara says:

    great drawing-you look great
    please everyone check out my blog

  42. mrjyn says:

    best pics. tell em to keep the deighty a while, get a holga or a brownie. just listen to dylan’s ‘everything is broken.’ he’d say the same thing. nice screenplay and portrait, not to mention the lynch boots. i’d say it was a damned good week. don’t worry you’ll get one to really complain about one day.

  43. Geri Wu says:

    haha its so true… crimping is addictive!
    love the shoes! amazing as always :)

  44. Stephanie says:

    SUPER BUMMED! Ariel Pink came through Houston on the 9th and I missed it!!! Glad you got to see him though. How was it live?

  45. Lobelia says:

  49. bethany says:

    gorgeous portrait. i’m completely happy being a little-read, low-key blogger until i see danny’s amazing pictures of you guys and i think–if only i had 5,000 followers, maybe danny would capture me!!!

  50. jamie clare says:

  53. Jonathan says:

    Just caught your little segment in the local news, it was totally unexpected and fabulous! The TV was on and it just flashed on and I was like “whoa!” Had to do a little double take to make sure haha, it was great.

  54. Maryam says:

    hi jane,
    i’ve spent the past 2 hours trying to find out where I can buy these degrade boots on-line. all my searches just send me to the cut out knee highs (which are also exquisite) or your website. did you buy them on-line by any chance? i’m super close to flying out to nyc to buy them, but surely there has to be an easier way. do they have a store in austin? or I can order by phone from their new york store? sorry, now i’m just thinking out loud…anyway, if you have an answer & you have time, please e-mail me. I don’t normally ask random people for this sort of help but I’m desperate! Thanks. -Maryam
    p.s. are they true to size? if i’m a 7, i should order a 37?

  55. the fur coat is gorgeous as is the peacock necklace! so amazing, though the boots arent my style, still look fab on you! x

  56. laura says:

    i loveee the necklace!of the first photo!

  57. Diane says:

  59. Nikki says:

    Love illustration artists and i tought i know much of names, but he is fabelous! Realy like this drawning of you and the rest of his collection.

  60. Elle says:

    Hit me up if you need some biology help. I’m a freshman bio major and it’s kind of my thing. More than willing to help out :)
