Cute little thrifted jacket w/ new silk boxing shorts

This little 80's jacket my mom picked up at Salvation Army on Tuesday is killer. I'm so into it! Sadly it is not mine for keeps. Expect to see this cutie on the vintage site soon.
I love wearing these little bandage tube tops in the summer-I got mine at Mango last year.
I had fun playing with it though.
These glasses were purchased at Buffalo Exchange in Austin for eight dollars. Kinda goofy but a little bit good too I think. Speaking of goofy, aren't I great at doing my hair? Oh geez…
Givenchy wedges…oops is that a blister I see? Ouch. Whatever.
Whoever gets this jacket is a lucky lady. It'll be up next week I think. I'm not in charge of that stuff so I don't know for sure.
The silk boxing shorts are Dries van Noten-purchased at By George in Austin. I'm in love with them! I'm thinking they will be perfect for Tokyo this summer-they're light and airy and perfect for humid weather.
My mom used to sell to By George back when she had her line. I'm going back to By George soon and can't wait to do a post on their amazing store.
*I realize I am way, way behind on my email-hopefully I'll get back to them soon. Things are so crazy with the school and the blog. Seems like they are constantly at odds. Gotta budget my time carefully. I have so much homework due next week not to mention a scary, scary test. (DP Biology…shudder…anyone who's ever taken a higher level IB Biology course knows what I mean)

    I’m loving everything except the color of the bandage top with the rest of it. I’m not really feeling the red with the colors in the jacket. Just my two cents, but I’d probably have gone with black, or a color that contrasted with the pink of the jacket.

    I was just at those stores in Austin. I thought the buffalo had some great stuff. being from chicago, it had the perfect amount of texas vintage to bring home as a souvenir instead of typical souvenir things.

    I really love that jacket! If I wasn’t budgeting, I’d be anxiously waiting for it to show up for sale. And I think the glasses rock. You should keep them because such few people could pull them off.

    Good luck on your biology exam – I wasn’t in the IB program during high school, but I now do lab work as a graduate student in biology (well, bioengineering, but close enough!) …all day every day. I love it, but it makes my clothing quite on the boring side. Ah well. I live for days off that are far and few between…
    Also – my best trick for blisters is using liquid bandage before even putting my shoes on! Works wonders :)

  101. Hi Jane,
    Not sure if you’ve seen any of my comments on your blog previously, but just want to know – does red really go with pink? Is it a crime to pair red and pink? I’ve always find it weird pairing red and pink and to see you have a red (more to orange-ish red) with pink blazer (they’re hot!) I wonder if it’s actually okay to pair those two great colors together.. (I’m a dark colored Asian so I get paranoid a lot.Eek! )
    I might not be able to check this again on your blog due to many comments you receive and it’ll take forever to load this page up, but do you mind replying this on my email instead? thanks lovely, you’re sweet.
