The week in review…

Something awful happened to my camera this week! My D80's light meter went haywire-I took it to the shop and it's going to have to be worked on there for a while. 
Kind of frustrating, because when I asked how long it was going to take they said something like, "Uhh…don't know, m'am…anywhere from 1 week to 2 months." Alrighty then…so we'll see when I get it back.
Oh yea-In addition to computer failure and camera failure, add "biology test" to my list of failures this week.  Oh man….
All of these crappy things could have made this a really bad week, but today is definitely making up for it.
Tonight I'm gonna see Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti at Hailey's tonight-I've been looking forward to this for a while. Cool shows also mean cool outfit opportunities. I haven't finalized my outfit yet but I'm thinking something with these things:
– Fur collar from Boulevards Boutique in Tulsa, Oklahoma
– Vintage pyramid necklace
– Junya Watanabe gold and green striped cardigan-the armholes, cuffs, and collar are attached with safety pins
– Crimped hair…just got a crimping iron and it's addictive. Hair straighteners, blow dries, curling irons are impossible for me to use. Crimping wands are totally fool proof and fabulous in a Kelly Wearstler/batty biddy sorta way.
Okay I promise no more webcam pictures, I was just lazy today and at loss without my D80.
Oh, and meet my new Margiela degradé cowboy boots. 

There is something about these boots that I find wierdly symbolic and compelling-I don't know, sort of like something from a David Lynch movie. I have to do a post about these boots and everything they embody tomorrow. So expect more detail soon. 
I had the most exciting email on Friday morning-from Danny Roberts of Igor and Andre.
I'm sure you're familiar with his work-he does beautiful portraits of models and has also immortalized the likes of Karoline and Rumi in his blogger portrait series.
He did this beautiful picture of me-thank you so much Danny!
So all of that scratch that-I didn't have a bad week. Nope, not at all…I've had an awesome week!
And tonight it's gonna get even better. So excited!
Okay I'm going to go crimp my hair some more and maybe do a little studying for biology…then to go see Ariel Pink!

  3. I’ve been looking for a crimping iron to make beachy waves, but have only found ones that give me that horrible early-90s throw-back look. Which one are you using?
    PS: LOVE the blog.

  17. My goodness, Jane! I’m eyeing on these boots, too! I just got Margiela Tabi heels and flats and was thinking of holding off on buying stuff this month, but I kept going to the website and drool over these boots. We have similar taste although you’re much younger than me…LOL…

    i just wanted to say that your blog is a breath of fresh air. you see a lot of ‘fashion’ blogs out there that are more so about self-promotion and incredibly vain pursuits (ahem, rumi), but i think all of us readers out there in cyberspace can really tell you that have an innate love and passion for clothes, looks and all things fashion. you keep it real.
    dont let your camera get you down. stay smiling.

    best pics. tell em to keep the deighty a while, get a holga or a brownie. just listen to dylan’s ‘everything is broken.’ he’d say the same thing. nice screenplay and portrait, not to mention the lynch boots. i’d say it was a damned good week. don’t worry you’ll get one to really complain about one day.

    hi jane,
    i’ve spent the past 2 hours trying to find out where I can buy these degrade boots on-line. all my searches just send me to the cut out knee highs (which are also exquisite) or your website. did you buy them on-line by any chance? i’m super close to flying out to nyc to buy them, but surely there has to be an easier way. do they have a store in austin? or I can order by phone from their new york store? sorry, now i’m just thinking out loud…anyway, if you have an answer & you have time, please e-mail me. I don’t normally ask random people for this sort of help but I’m desperate! Thanks. -Maryam
    p.s. are they true to size? if i’m a 7, i should order a 37?
