rainy fall day

It's been raining non-stop these past couple of days. It's pretty chily out…perfect weather to debut my new over-the-knee boots by Barney's Co-Op and don a favorite Rick Owens cocoon coat.

  2. Vee says:

    Your whole conservative/classy black outfit is pure love. The nerdy glasses are a nice touch as well!

  3. Victoria says:

    I love the weather we’ve been having recently (I’m in Euless)! It’s so conducive to sitting inside and reading or studying. And naps! Hah. I love the glasses you’re wearing, are they prescription? What kind are they?

  4. Leslee says:

    I love this post. You look like you’re channeling Michelle Pfeiffer in cat woman. I love it. x)

  5. dana says:

    if there is anything that you should do right after bringing home new footwear its … TAKE OFF THE STICKERS off the sole…
    great look otherwise ;)

  6. vivee says:

    i can’t believe you left the sticker on the sole though:)

  7. Bad, bad, badass boots, love the sheer tights with them as well.
    Anything Rick Owens is great, I just picked up a vintage Michelle Lemy rocker suit and it made me think of him and his work :)

  8. I LOVE THOSE BOOTS! they look so good on you not too high but just right!
    check out my blog!:

  9. Area says:

    amazing boots. this post just reminded me of how much i miss the rain…luckily, it seems we’ll have some here on thursday :)

  10. Guys, it’s not a sticker on the sole!!
    It’s the chrome on the heel reflecting the gravel…
    though it looks just like a sticker doesnt it?? ;))
    I would never do that!!
    Thanks for reading and thanks for your kind comments!
    xo Jane

  11. Ava says:

    Those are some of the most badass thigh-highs I’ve seen this season! And I’m glad to see you wearing some Rick– I just got my Rick Owens jacket out for the winter a few days ago!

  12. Hannah says:

    Has your hair been that color for long? I looks amazing!

  13. Brooke says:

    This is definitely one of my favorite outfits on you. I love everything. You have completely convinced me that I NEED a pair of over the knee boots, and I need them quickly!

  14. Stevy says:

    I heart those boots! I want some so badly!

  15. dy says:

    love the boots :)

  16. Rose says:

    Girl, cut the crap. It’s a sticker allright. Under your right foot. You can see the different icons for inner shoe outer shoe and sole. But at least it is not the price tag teeheeheee. Killer heels tho, lurrrve them. I’d be happy to shell out for these big time if they’d fit my size feet + my size calf…

  17. this is sooooo, SO my type of outfit. i am all over the whole edgy thing you have going on here!! i can’t even mention how much i adore those boots. you just made my boot addiction worse! *sigh* now there’s no hope for me whatsoever. ;)

  18. Fashinable, as always :)

  19. Marina says:

    I love the boots! I just ordered my over-the-knee boots last night, only they are made from suede and don’t have a heel. I have a VERY hard time finding boots that I like because I think the whole idea of them is quite awkward- A shoe that comes to your knee and there is just random fabric loosley on your leg. But, anyway my thought is: “If you can make a boot that looks good AND doesn’t hurt, you get an A+ in my book.” And, you one-uped me because you got some heels added to those gorgeous leather BBOOOTTTSS! The jacket looks so well crafted and must have a lot of construction to it. I also would like to say how much I enjoy your photography style because I think a visually interesting backround is important to complement any outfit and I like to see you “in-motion.” Showing how this outfit is wearable and I can actually M-O-V-E in it. So, Jane (or whoever else) if you have read this far I would like to say BRAVO because I know this is long! tooodaaalooo <3 Marina

  20. from lara says:

    love the boots and love your red hair!

  21. WJ says:

    I’ve had many a day where I’ve received new shoes and jumped up and down in delight, proceeded to put them on in a rushed manner and admire myself wholeheartedly…the last thing I want (or remember) to do is to take all those pesky sales stickers off the shoe, haha. And Jane it’s so cute that you and your mum have similar pairs of shoes, I think it would be really interesting if you guys can do a post which shows the different ways you style the same footwear.

  22. Brigadeiro says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE that coat, and of course, those boots are HOT! ;)

  23. Johanna says:

    how is it you manage to make an all black ensemble look anything but dark & goth! Some how a ray of light on a dreary day…love it!

  92. joan says:

    Those boots paired with that RO jacket make you look like some sort of superhero, especially in the first picture. Very very badass!

  93. japke says:

    I find over the knee boots tricky, but you give them some class! they look wonderful on you!

  94. Q says:

    In the words of Rachel Zoe “I DIE!” those boots are so effing hot I can’t stand it. A tad reminiscent of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman but you don’t look like a hooker. LOL. Your style inspires me.

  95. To Connie–The boots run a tad large, and are on the narrow side. I hope this info helps. I actually went down a size.

  96. sofiasophie says:

  99. Lauren says:

    I love Rick Owens! The collar on your jacket reminds me of a queen- it looks really regal in a dark sort of way. And you can definitely rock the all-black look, it makes a great contrast with your complexion!
    PS Just started reading your blog not too long ago, and I’m addicted. Great style, lovely photography!

  108. Ebony says:

    I fell in love with those boots every since I set eyes on them a month or so ago. I like that they aren’t too tall and comfy. Their shoes are manufactured in the same factory as Manolo Blahnik. I’m fond of fall and your total look is precious dear.

  116. cat says:

    omg amazing! so beautiful

  117. Meadow says:

    I’ve been wearing my Marc by Marc Jacobs galoshes as we get into rainy season. Those boots are MAYJUH! How do you not fall?

  118. Jasmin says:

    I love the new over the knees, they look stunning on you! I want a pair too, but I think I’m looking for something with a chunkier heel. There are so many options, I just can’t decide!

  119. Roz says:

    Love the quite minimalist feel of this outfit. What completely gorgeous boots! And I really like the almost sculptural style of the jacekt.. I think the all black work looks good on you! The nerdy glasses just add a lovely little quirky charm. Not sure why Im analysing your outfit in detail :)
    Basically it looks really nice! Nice rainy day feel.

  120. Anki says:

    Wow the boots are great! I always look for some overknees but I can’t find some beautiful!

  130. Jessica says:

    You have a fabulous photographer. Who takes these pictures of you? Ah-mazing!

  131. Those boots are simply stunning. Love the heel and the height over the knee is very sexy. You do a great job showing that these can be worn anywhere. I must say they are superb for New York. :) Most of all I must say your photography is great. Glad I checked out your site today.

  145. Oakley says:

    Oh…my…goodness. I could marry that pair of boots right now, they’re so flippin’ hot. :D I’m SO jealous of you right now!

  146. Victoria says:

    I have never been so excited for fall and rain! That cocoon coat is amazing, especially the collar-so dramatic and I love that it completely covers you, yet somehow gives you shape. The over-the-knee boots really elongate your legs and adds that something extra to your outfit. Beautiful!

  147. dot says:

    Gorgeous look. Absolutely gorgeous.
    I used to wear a pair of black fake but real looking suede over the knee boots that I found in a thrift shop. With my skinny legs and the material being kind of stretchy, they kept slouching down around my calves. I was forever pulling them up like knee socks. Anyway, they eventually disintegrated. Such a shame.
    It takes a truly beautiful girl to pull off those hard Ray-Ban style glasses. I love that last shot: there’s a hint of a young Nicole Kidman.

  148. Great!

    I must say that I’m astonished that someone so young as you Jane is so chic and has such a great sense of style. I’m 27 now but when I was 27 and lived in Poland I made one fashion mistake after another (and I guess it still happens ;-)

  174. sfia says:

    Hi, please when you wear new shoes remove the label under the soles of your shoes… it’s a “fashion faux pas”!
    A beintôt

  175. The outfit reminds me awfully a lot of Rihanna. But somehow you added a few thing things and owned this.

  176. Mairi says:

    Everything is beautiful, but… you should remove the sticker from the sole immediately.
