WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE*

I have been sooo excited to post these boots…I got them in Austin at Big Bertha's Bargain Basement..they were so out-of-control that I had to have them. Even if they are too small for me.

But looking at these boots I can't help but think that they are directional…I can totally see this shape of boot for fall 2011. If a YSL Tribute boot dropped acid at Woodstock and got knocked up by a cowboy boot, then maybe their offspring would look something like this.

Wore these last week with Hysteric Glamour jeans and a Jelly Garcia lace tank top & jacket I got in Tokyo.

 

Borrowing a Pamela Love necklace from my mom and a Mr. We cross.

 

On to this crazy 70's poncho…I am sad to say that it is not mine. My mom let me borrow it for this picture. This poncho is so painfully beautiful-there must be at least 10 different furs on this poncho. The best thing about this poncho is that it has hand-painted flowers on the inside of it.
 It belongs in a museum. 

My mom got this poncho at Archive Vintage here in Dallas…talk about the find of a lifetime. 

 

 

  

*I am not in any way endorsing Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are. I thought it was a pretty depressing movie. My best friend cried the whole time when we saw it together. 
 This post gets it's name because when my mom was taking these pictures, she asked me to do my best WTWTA reenactment. Pictures of my really good impersonations are not included in this post to preserve my "dignity"…"dignity" that was totally lost when an astounded passerby caught me in the middle of my "wild rumpus". Sigh…at this point though, I am pretty used to embarrassing myself in the name of beautiful clothes.

    I like fashion but i do not agree using furs not even when they make this poncho that deserves to be in a museum after killing animals for making it.

  8. those are some kick-ass boots, for sure. and i agreed with you about the movie…way too depressing for a “kid’s” movie!

  9. those boots certainly have a lot of character.
    i like the overall styling you did.
    i only vaguely remember the book, so im skipping the movie, plus the animals are just too “weird” for me to see in a movie, though that little boy is adorable.

    Can’t believe anyone is up in arms about vintage fur. A useful, amazing piece of craftmanship, made of real, sustainable materials should rot in a closet because it comes from death? If you eat food grown in a field, live in a house made from lumber, or god forbid eat meat or wear leather, your hands are just as bloody as any fur wearer.

    whoa, i am surprised you didn’t like the movie…
    it has an awkward demographic, i don’t think it’s intended to be a “kids’ movie”, nor do i think it was meant to be a drama
    i think jonze did a miraculous job of presenting the emotions of loneliness and hurt through the eyes of childhood (a lot of people remember the sentiments of being a kid, but forget how different pain felt back then, and how hard it was to cope with it when you didn’t know how to express it, or felt that no one understood)
    cinematography was excellent, costumes and effects were excellent, and the story is classic, and well adapted. not to mention a great music score.
    everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but i think a lot of people missed the point, and just didn’t “get it”

I don’t know a thing about fabrication or production, but I do doubt that cows that are killed for meat are then skinned and sent to tanneries for shoes. But hey, that’s just me…meanwhile, Jane, what’s with the hair — is that another color? I do like it, but you kinda were rockin’Isabella Rossellini with the dark hair when it was pulled up!

    the jacket, the tank top and the necklace and cross look great together. What i really dislike are the boots…sorry, but they are kitsch and resemble clown footwear. And even if the poncho is a vintage find, it still was made by killing animals and most of all, do you really want to be a teenage girl that likes wearing fur? you should think about dressing somehow according to your age but still having a personal style. Now i realize that you’re just a lucky girl who can mix styles and different garments because you have resources and imagination.but there are hundred of girls or even more that are probably more creative and can create an original look; the only problem is that they don’t have your possibilities. I wish you luck with your projects and hope that your next posts will reflect your good taste in matters of fashion :)

    Hanene said “If you eat food grown in a field, live in a house made from lumber, or god forbid eat meat or wear leather, your hands are just as bloody as any fur wearer.”
    Just to clarify, there are many ways that animals are killed for the commercial fur trade and none are very quick and painless. It is easy to research the most common methods of killing by google-ing the particular animal and adding the word fur or skin. In our lives, our field grown vegetables and our lumber are not tortured and if we eat meat we have resources now to be more and more discerning about it’s treatment in life and at death if we concern ourselves to know exactly where it comes from. Fur and animal skin are not just a byproduct of the meat trade and it is not usually a humane end for these animals. Let’s do what we need to do for ourselves and let everyone else live their lives, just please try to speak in facts, if some people are concerned about the way animals are treated let them be, no need to disparage. On the flip side if some people are not, let them be, don’t disparage. To paraphrase Ghandi, live the change you wish to see in the world.
    On another note, Jane I love these photos! I loved WTWTA, the book and the movie, and your rumpus through the woods looks excellent!

    And I’m really stunned by those comments on the fur coat. Who said those animals only died for their skin? All the rabbits and other animals that go into slaughter, why not also use their skin if they’re dead anyways? And it’s vintage so more or less recycling. I wonder how much of those commenters also eat meat etc.
    I just dislike it when people force their opinion onto someone else. There are a lot of fur haters and also a lot of fur lovers. No one is perfect.

    Oh my… this is your best look yet by far! I’d be crazy happy if I scored any one of those pieces…..
    And to weigh in on the fur issue: I think people have a problem with fur (as opposed to leather or even sheepskin with attached fur (i.e. Uggs!)) because it so OBVIOUSLY looks like it came from an animal. Other forms of animal products become transformed into new objects and we see them only as what the maker has intended (boots, purse, sofa, soap, rubber, LUNCH, etc). Fur cannot do that. You cannot transform fur into anything that lends itself towards forgetting what the material actually is.
    That said, I would be very happy with even purchasing NEW fur (yes! new!) if I knew that the animal was being used entirely or was raised/killed humanely. Fur is a much more sustainable material for this planet than petroleum-based synthetic furs and fabrics.
    Off my soapbox… Anyway, great look Jane… you and your mom inspire me constantly!

    Sweet Jane, how could a depressing movie inspire such a happy and spirited photo shoot! “Where The Wild Things Are” is a place where we are meant to escape the harsh realities of life, or childhood, unfortunately, sometimes these cold, hard truths find us even when we are there. We just have to remember how to let go and once again “let the wild rumpus start”.

    I like the boots except for the pointy toe, it reminds me of Ronald McDonald´s and I really don´t like people wearing real fur, altough I think it´s a little contradictory that you are vegetarian but you wear real fur.it is your choice to wear it but I hope you are concious that animals died for you to play around in the park.

    Are the boots vintage? Didn’t you say you were against vintage shoes for their conservativeness? Hoped you’d come around on that one. “Directional” current shoes are usually blatant copies of truly original recent vintage, but we all know there was a time when shoe designing didn’t mean combining your favorite three shapes from last season or knocking off a forgotten 60s style. Sure, Ferragamo was referencing the Renaissance with his original platforms, but when that much time has passed, something can be truly new, as it isn’t merely retro and requires more knowledge of history to understand.
    Anyway, you work those boots and the poncho. What’s good about fashion if it isn’t a little embarrassing? “Embarrass” comes from the root word for complicate, and the complication and awkwardness of fashion is the essence of its art.

    Looooove the boots but I think the poncho is foul…but not because it’s fur, more because it’s going towards crazy cat lady territory (seriously, first photo of it I thought you had cats on your shoulders).
    You still look adorable though, and I’d say you and your mum are in the minority of people who could actually pull it off!
    Also…have these people who are getting all antsy about fur not seen previous posts? There have been several fur coats/fur products posted on this blog so you should all know better…if you’ve got an issue with it either skim over the post or go find a totally vegan blogger to follow.
    Don’t get on your high horse about how terrible a person is for wearing a vintage fur when you’re perfectly happy reading posts about their brand new leather shoes.

    I adored the shoot and know why you absolutely love the poncho! I am a feign for detail, so I would have loved to see the hand painted flowers. Details are usually what sell a piece for me. It tells me that the designer took thought, time, and creativity to add a little extra umph and distinction to their creation. Like a lace-up boot that zips on the side…what’s that?!…it’s supposed to LACE-UP!…excuse my rant, but I believe there should be no half stepping when it comes to designing.

    OK, don’t ask me why at almost 49 years old (next week) I’m watching The City, but I wasn’t really “watching” it so much as it was on in the background, and I happened to look away from my computer just long enough to see the photo shoot scene. Out of curiosity I did a search on the ‘net and found this blog. My reaction can be best summed up with a gasp. I feel completely inspired. I love that you are open to chunky heels and long skirts/dresses, and I love your uncanny ability to find the greatest cheap stuff to mix in with your high-end pieces, like the forever21 footless tights and your funky smelling shaggy jacket. :-) How fun! And yet it’s all incredibly sophisticated. I’m an instant fan of this blog and look forward to your new entries as I march backwards through the existing ones in awe.

    I am not making a statement on whether fur is appropriate or not. but the whole “it’s vintage argument” isn’t sufficient. although i don’t believe it should be thrown away, when people wear fur (vintage fur, FAKE fur, new fur, real fur) it stimulates interest and therefore sustains the present-day fur industry. vintage fur (and even fake fur) is not benign….

    And for all the haters about the fur … leather shoes are the same thing. So unless you want to wear cheap-ass faux leather boots that fall apart in 2 months and are hideous to boot, deal with it. Not to mention acrylic fur for the most part is ugly as sin.

    All your finger-pointing and complaining isn’t going to put the fur back on the animal, and really you should be directing your criticism at the person who owned it originally, if at all. Indigenous tribes have been using animal skins to clothe themselves for centuries and re-using fur clothing is a great way to ensure the animal didn’t die for nothing. And I doubt any of you would have the balls to say it to Jane’s face.

    Those boots and the poncho are pretty rad.
    Directional though? Maybe, but that kind of implies that they’re a fresh, nouveau piece but clearly they come from an iconic time and place and never lost that so they’re more classic than directional.
    I agree with the above poster who says that they don’t condone the killing of animals in order to wear them. However, do agree with recycling clothing.
    Lastly, while WTWTA was emotionally intense, I think you do it an injustice by simply labeling it as ‘depressing’ and discarding it as such.
    Again, I agree with a poster above who said that it seems that most people didn’t get it.
    The movie was beautiful and the way emotions and the complexity of relationships were conveyed was accurate and moving. I have an 8 year old who loved it because he understands the place and importance of these topics and has been raised to appreciate the reality of life.
    Talk about directional!

    This is the first time I’ve ever left a comment on a blog but I was moved to do so by several reasons. This post is so gloriously joyous, I cannot say how much I enjoy it. There are many reasons for creating and for reading blogs and I enjoy seeing not just the creative costuming you and your mother come up with, but way you put yourselves in there too. Also, I love the boots! Certainly, they are out there, but isn’t the point to explore and have fun and be creative? If you are not already familiar with it, check out the Margiela 2008 (Autumn/Hiver, I think) collection and look for the one-legged suede leggings. They will definitely connect with these boots as they are suede-on-suede reverse applique’.
    And don’t pay any attention to those who have only unkind things to say (different than those who may have different opinions from your, respectfully delivered). I am your mom’s age and I’ve had decades to come into my own fashion confidence. There are many highly intelligent, creative people who love fashion (as you well know). And I would definitely wear not just the boots but the whole outfit!

    So, let’s see, killing something for your shoe leather is OK, but killing something for the fur is not? That is part and parcel of fashion. Animals will die if we wear leather, fur or nothing. I guarantee a furry animal not used in that poncho from 1970 would not be alive today. You want Jane to wear petrolium based products that are more harmful to the environment? You can’t have it both ways.

    Late comment since I haven;t logged on to bloglovin for days, but I feel a need to respond to some of the comments on the use of fur.
    I’m a vegetarian. and I am against any kind of use of fur, but I understand that not everyone will feel the same way. I know why animal rights advocates seem like lunatics sometimes, and I feel for the animals in the same way they do. But I would not tell people they should be ashamed for themselves either. That is not an effective approach in defending the animals, and getting people to consider not using fur. I think PETA and other animal rights groups have done amazing things for animals’ rights, but I don’t see how mud-slinging (or red-paint throwing) can get them anywhere except make them look ridiculous.
    Someone else posted that it is just as bad to eat meat. I agree and it hurts the animals, but the treatment of the animals bred for fur is evidently worse and much more inhumane than the treatment of those that die for food (which is also very horrible). Most people who are against fur, but eat meat are aware that they are supporting the killing of animals, but that’s better than nothing. People are complex and contradict themselves in countless ways. Just because someone eats meat doesn’t mean they have no say in campaigning against fur.

    Matt, and some of the other pro-furs here:
    If you parade around in real fur yet don’t expect to get any sort of criticism, your living in fantasyland. Even 17-year-old Jane knows this. Do you see anywhere on this post her asking the anti-fur brigade not to leave comments? No. So who are you to tell us otherwise, Matt? Like you said it’s JANE’S blog not yours.
    I absoulutely HATE the idea of fur, but I would never tell a fur-lover not express their opinion.
    So for all the people in here gushing about that coat, that is their view.
    Just as the people have a problem with real fur also have a right to say so.
