Holt Renfrew Windows-& back from Tokyo!

I am very honored to have been featured in the fashion-blogger window display unveiled at Holt Renfrew last Friday-thanks so much to John Gerhardt, HR's creative director, for organizing this-all of the windows look amazing! I wish I lived in Canada so I could see them in real life. 
Thank you so much to the kind readers who sent in photos of the windows-including K at Such Fun Things, Tricia Campbell, who even posted videos of all of the windows. Check them out at her blog.
Other windows include The Sartorialist, Jak & Jil, Garance Dore, Bryan Boy, and Anita Clarke. What a privilege to be featured among my favorite blogs-thank you again Holt Renfew for paying tribute to bloggers!

I'm back from Tokyo-it feels AMAZING to be back.
I really appreciate all of the feedback from my readers during my stay in Tokyo-I am so pleased to hear so many of you guys enjoyed it's photo documentation!
Some parting images from Japan (wearing this insane top & cardigan I bought from Fur Fur)
If this post is brief, its because I'm preparing for a cookout with my friends and family tonight…I missed them so much while I was gone!
xo Jane

    The Holt Renfrew windows featuring YOU look amazing! Holts is my
    store for designer goods and contemporary wear. I was planning on hitting
    Bloor St., on my next trip to Toronto in a few weeks. I hope the window displays are
    still there. I was planning on wearing the vintage Dushante pants I bought from Atlantis Home.
    I’ll be sure to take some pics!

  32. i am nearly speechless over that Fur Fur top and cardigan. to say it’s gorgeous is an understatement. anyway, i just adore it, especially with the white Ann Ds, which are so versatile in white- i have them too. : )
    the window displays are incredibly eye-catching. it must have been surreal to first see the photos, the way they’ve depicted the blog and your various looks- very, very cool. the visual merchandiser(s) & creative director did an outstanding job, it appears!

    Hey Jane,
    I’ve never posted a comment before but I’ve been reading for about two years maybe and I was surprised to see your blog advertised in the Holts in Vancouver on Howe last week! I had no idea you were having such international success. I snapped some photos (I use the D300 as well!) but it looks like you’ve been given an idea already of what the displays look like. They’re pretty cool actually.

    For those of you who are asking about where to get that top Jane’s wearing…
    on FurFur’s site (http://www.furfurfur.jp/) it says you can buy them at the FurFur shop on floor 2 of Harajuku LaForet (where I’m headed in 3 weeks…so freakin excited cuz I missed FurFur last time I was there; just hit up my fave Hotel 55 Boutique on the 4th floor..how could I have missed it??? Sheesh.)
    OR you can shop online at: http://www.nuan.gr.jp/sf/Category.do?catID=10078608 if you have a Japanese address to deliver to! Guilty! (But the store has got to be much, much better than what’s online…)
