From their celebrity guest edited issues (Pamela Anderson was surpringly quippy and self-aware) to their blind date documentations, Jane was always a good read, and I am still keenly aware of the void in my monthly magazine pile-up. This was one of the the editorials I loved most, from early ’07 I’m approximating, and poring over my back issues I found myself just as inspired as I was the first time around. Valentine Fillol-Cordier and Susan Eldridge (LOVE) in high waists, ’90s-evocative denim jackets, and Lolita sunnies? Yes please. That last picture is just IT for me. Perhaps I need to create a $2000 Gucci skirt fund. And this must have been the my subconscious inspirational origin of my most recent shoe acquisition, I’m thinking.
Yay! They’re a tad big but nothing a gelatinous insole and a couple extra holes for the buckle won’t fix. People didn’t seem to love these when I posted about them last week but they’re much better in real life – the satin is almost incandescently blue, and I love the cutout heel. This sweater I found at Marshall’s a few years ago shopping with my mom. Last time I wore it, my boyfriend’s brother (whose aesthetic is more surf/skate than Barney’s) declared that it was the coolest sweater he had ever seen in his life and he was going to steal it. I told him it wasn’t unisex. And I’m wearing that dress again, I know I know…

Now that I’m looking at this outfit, I’m a little perturbed that the turquoise matches one of the colors in the dress. Oh well. This is one of my favorite little boho dresses, I love the different prints.
