I have to say that I much prefer the bleak and dreary dustscapes of Texas to the urban sprawl of Tokyo…I always have.
My mom and I shot each other in Roanoke, just a minute or two away from home. 
We loved these funky chairs lined up in front of this restaurant. 
Wearing a J. Crew pleated bib front shirt, J. Crew bracelets, shiny brocade pants from 'furfur', and Chanel bowtie heels

    I love the small town feel. There is nothing like it. Glad you are back safely and love the Chanel booties.

  2. Tara says:

    Those brocade pants are too gorgeous! I agree with you — I LOVE the “bleak” Texas and Oklahoma landscape…so peaceful. Have a lovely weekend!

  4. Cathy says:

  5. Modemädchen says:

  7. Heather says:

    Jane, you’re so cool.
    Definitely my favorite blogger :)

  8. sd says:

    i love the shoes!!
    they have a bit of a sex appeal feel to them

  9. Thomas E.K. says:

    Pants are rad as can be.
    I love Texas and it’s quirky culture. NYC, LA, Paris etc are fun to visit and delve into but I absolutely love living in Texas and find it peaceful, beautiful, inspiring and full of an almost lackadaisical energy.

  10. edit says:

    the outfit below with those same pants was much more successful than this one.

  11. Ava says:

    Hi Jane! I have a pair of pants that are kind of like yours but I was not sure about a top idea. This is a great idea for me. <3 Ava

  12. peacegal45 says:

    i LOVE those shoes!

  13. YoQueSe says:

    stuuuunning shoes!!!

  14. Andrew Jones says:

    It always feels great to come home and sleep in your own bed after a long trip.
    Great shots! As always, love the shoes.
    Have a great weekend Jane.
    Me & Marisa

  15. Anna says:

    absolutely cool shoes, many greetings from Poland :)

  16. Nahal says:

    Your outfit is incredible, I love how you make things that wouldnt traditionally match look amazing!

  17. Cvm says:

    I ust LOVE your style…you can combine clothes that I’ll wouldn’t wear and look perfectly!(Sorry for my english..I’m spanish and I don’t speak english very well)

  18. vicky says:

    really like the pants!
    and the shoes DUH!!!

  19. Lake says:

    those shoes *dies*

  20. Hi Jane!, i’m so in love with your Chanel heels, they’re to die for!.

  21. Bek says:

    I love the last picture, you really live one or two minute away from there ?? With that kind of shoes, you’re not afraid of the dust are you ?
    Where is it located in Texas ?

  22. alex says:

    i’ve been digging your outfits as of late, but this one not so much.
    i like all the individual pieces, but together it looks a mess.

  23. cassaundra says:

    what a dreamy town!

  24. Kelly says:

    Babe’s Chicken! Ha-ha. Your shoes are killer!

  25. The pattern of the pants is gorgeous.
    But myself, I’m more of an urban sprawl girl – but then again, I have never experienced anything like what Texas must be like.

  26. dannie says:

    i love the bows on the shoes
    the individual pieces here are great, cant say i like them together though

  27. katie says:

    I like that you didn’t match the shirt with the pants. It looks much better to be less matchy matchy.

  28. luxirare says:

    i love these pants from fur fur and I had no idea that Laforet carries their merchandise!
    Those shoes are like “naked” chanels.
    PS. totally awesome pages of you and your mom in Vogue! You guys look drop dead.

  29. emma rolos says:

    i was there a few times actually! i thought the same of those awesome chairs. i go to the near by university (southwestern adventist university)
    they have some great restaurants there and absolutely loved the atmosphere :)

  30. Brigadeiro says:

    The fabric of those pants is just amazing! Such cute chairs, and Roanoke looks so cute & quaint! :)

  31. Emma says:

    these pictures are so great!

  32. xAZD says:

    these are truly stunning photos! the lighting is so pretty

  33. Becca says:

    I adore those brocade pants – so fabulous.

  34. Annabel says:

    still can’t get over the chanel booties. love.

  35. Isabel says:

    Absolutely love the shoes! Amazing ;)

  36. Kate says:

    Saw you and Judy in this month’s Vogue. Congrats! I loved the way you and your mom wore the same pieces but styled them to suit your personal tastes.
    P.S. Those brocade pants are stunning.

  37. Jocelyne says:

    Those lil bow shoes are so lovely and sweet!

  38. Love all the different things going on in your outfit!

  39. Christine says:

    This outfit is so chic and original, you’re unstoppable!

  40. La Dauphine says:

    Love your shoes! And the photos from your town are fantastic!

  41. Style Spy says:

    Welcome home, Texas girls, and oooooh, I do like those pants.

  42. Cruz says:

    I can see the appeal of Texas. Great outfit as always. :)

  43. Catherine says:

    Don’t know if anyone told you yet but the Bella in the new Twilight graphic novel looks exactly like you! I saw it and I was like… this totally reminds me of someone… RIGHT!? You have to see the resemblance.

  44. Tspranga ;) says:

    BABES! yum.

  45. Jacqueline says:

    Jane….you are so inspiring and such a great role model!! I am sure that you will have a bright future ahead of you(:
    Check out my blog @

  46. grace says:

    those are my favorite of your shoes.they are just sweet perfection and lovely. they make me go ‘mmmmm’ with squinty eyes.
    actually.those and your martin margiela surrealist cowboy boots.

  47. yehav says:

    The shoes and pants combination is marvelous! reminds me of coppola’s Marie Antoinette!

  48. kathy says:

    Amazing brocade pants Jane.

  49. Rebekka says:

    Only place in Texas I really loved was Ferris and that’s because it had the whole small town thing. I didn’t like mainstream Dallas (other than Park Cities), Cedar Hill, nor did I like Greenville.
    Love those shoes! And the pants… And the pants and shoes together.

  50. jane!
    i love your outfit for today again!
    oh, congrats to you and your mom on vogue’s issue!
    i adore your style so much!

  51. Meg says:

    Hey hey! I’m loving your blog! It’s great. What’s equally as great is this killer outfit! I love the contrast between your very american, masculine shirt and your romantic pants. And those Chanel heels… well there aren’t even words to express how much I envy you for owning those! And I agree… I currently live in the city, but there is nothing like it when I go out of state and head back home to Georgia. Nobody does the simple things in life quite like southerners! (Even though Texas and Georgia are very different kinds of south.) Again, love the blog :)

  52. ...l says:

    home sweet home. you look adorable. you’re making me want to move to texas.

  53. Ava says:

    Those pants are incredible!! Love the eclectic mix of patterns/textures in your outfit with the laid-back shape — it’s genius! And those insane-hot Chanels don’t hurt, either :)

  54. Anni says:

    I really love your Chanel heels…. omg they are perfect!!!

  55. Kelly says:

    Love the two different textures and prints together!!!

  56. FrockRawker says:

    The latest issue of Vogue recently arrived in my mailbox and I was so excited to see you in it! Congrats to you and your mom.
    Those chairs are awesome. Totally understand why they chain them down.

  57. Raquel says:

    You look beautiful Jane!! Nice look on the Vogue shit!!

  61. Ilona Selina says:

  100. Dorothea says:

    I’m more of a big city girl. I live in Stockholm, capital of Sweden, so maybe it’s not as big as other cities like New York or Tokyo, but still. I’ve been in New York once, and loved it!
    By the way, like those shoes!
