Suggestions for Jane™ 2-27-2011

My first response to these spring pumps by D&G was: “Sea of Shoes!” I   can’t think of anyone who could wear them better than Jane.

No one can do Nutty 70′s Divorcee like Jane does. Somehow she manages to look worn and trying-too-hard no matter what she wears. Her ‘Baby Jane’ Halloween costume was only a fraction scarier than her everyday look.

I think she could wear these shoes with a tutu over a Bob Mackie evening gown with maybe a huge bedazzled cowboy hat. Right? I don’t know, I’m crap at styling, obviously.

I’m not really mad at Jane any more. I have turned my wrath elsewhere. I’d like Jane to fix my roof or my teeth but if she chooses to buy shoes instead, I can deal with it.

Jane, these shoes are only $495. I hope their relatively low price won’t be a deterrent! You can buy them here.

    “delightful faux-vintage chic”
    slightly looks like 1950′s bed sheet print, with a modern twist-OF COURSE!!

  2. Iron Chic Says:

    Jane has designs on those goddam Prada sandals I can’t afford!

  3. patni Says:

    Ahahaha. I love those shoes. I try to look like a 70s divorcee sometimes too.

  4. Moo Says:

    so true, she always looks like she’s trying extremely hard to be ::fashion::. it’s just gotten worse over time with these attempts at making “editorials” with cliché photo filters and heavy makeup.

  5. annemarie Says:

    Please, for a person for whom cheap=cheap, those shoes are way too cheap/cheap.

  6. sheri Says:

    I really like the shoes, but would not pay $500 for them.
    That’s 2 iPhones!

  7. Cricket9 Says:

    Haha, that’s half of my monthly mortgage payment. No way Jane would be such a cheapskate.
    Completely off topic – John Galliano suspended by Dior, arrested for (supposedly) yelling anti-semitic and racist invectives at a couple in a bar. Oh, also threatening to kill them.
    Tyra & Co. tortures a fresh bunch of teenage hopefuls- a really cringe-worthy spectacle.
    Now, back to house cleaning :-(

  8. Caroline Says:

    Oh I like those shoes actually.

    …but would not pay that much for them at all. :/

  9. That's Not My Age Says:

    The tutu over the Bob Mackie gown sounds good to me – or how about one of those Juicy Couture velour tracksuits and a biker jacket?

  10. Kellie Says:

    The Dior thing…
    Evidence still coming in, but the in the alleged quote, he doesnt seem to be anti-anything but ugly.

    He apparently told the woman she had a bad bag, ugly brows and embarassing thighs.
    Havent seen a pic of the woman, but I feel that all may indeed be true of her…

  11. Cricket9 Says:

    Kellie, obviously I wasn’t sitting in that bar – but there were (allegedly, OK) some racial remarks – which I don’t want to repeat here. So, being anti-ugly is fine now, and I can go and insult people in public because I don’t like their appearance?
    IMO, Galliano is no such an Adonis himself; I find your pencil-thin mustache pretentious and ugly, Mr. Galliano!

  12. Sister Wolf Says:

    re Gallianogate: We will have a separate post on antisemitism. Gather your thoughts and artillery for that.

  13. Cat Says:

    What the fuck Kellie?
    Anti-”ugly” IS anti something. Ugh. What, so now we discriminate all who don’t have thigh-girl’s thighs and can’t spend 2 grand on a fucking handbag?

  14. Cat Says:

    I also like the shoes but could almost pay my rent with that money. However, Jane also buys shoes on sale!
    SW, I am sure many of us would gladly give up shoes to help you fix your roof. Too bad my shoes aren’t really worth much to anyone other than myself, but maybe a common effort could amount to something?

  15. Kellie Says:

    I believe it is said to have started when they implied he was a homeless bum.

    Why is it hard to believe someone could have ugly brows???

    There are several wintesses who said there was no such anyi semite rant.

  16. kellie Says:

    Also, I could really use someone to explain to me what the issue is, that people have, with Jewish people. I totally dont get it at all, and why anyone is against them. No one I know has been able to explain it to me either.

  17. Andra Says:

    I think those shoes need to be teamed with a swan dress and a tiara.
    A muff and/or pomeranian couldn’t hurt either.
    Kellie, I am not against Jewish people.

  18. kellie Says:

    Cat- I think you are misunderstanding. No one is being discriminated against at all.

    They were mean to him, and in return he told her she was hideous.
    She wasnt refused service or a table.
    She was just responded to, as she gave.

  19. Cricket9 Says:

    @ Kellie: it’s very easy to believe that someone could have ugly brows – so what? Should anyone imply that I’m a crazy cat lady, I know what I’ll do: I’ll yell at them “and you have ugly brows, Jumbo-like ears and these shoes! I can’t believe anyone could wear these shoes! I’ll kill you!!!”.
    As for things anti-semites of this world have against Jewish people, google “Antisemitism”.
    @Andra – you’re right, as usual. A tiara and a pomeranian, or a butterfly on a string, should be de rigeur…
    OK, I’m going to watch the pre-Oscars so see if I spot any ugly brows there.

  20. Andra Says:

    Cricket, well, there’ll be Nicole Kidman for a start!!

  21. Cat Says:

    @ Kellie: You are right, I did not inform myself well… The way some people were talking about it it seemed that the attack had just come out of the blue. I find it perfectly normal that he would yell back something nasty at someone who was insulting him for no reason. And I have seen no proof that he said anything racist or anti-semitic.

  22. kellie Says:

    Thank you for that Cat!!!
    I am prepared to eat crow if it goes the other way and he was a bad man. I hope against hope that it isnt the case…
    I dont have the kind of money required to buy anything but the occasional mascara from Dior, but I do think they have lovely things.

    Cricket-I dont know that killing someone for ugly shoes is necessary. Sea lives on, after all…

  23. Dru Says:

    I don’t get it, why is Dior suspending him before an investigation is even completed? What happened to ‘innocent until proven guilty’, or is that a standard that doesn’t apply in civil law jurisdictions (France)?

    If he’s actually guilty, then he should be punished under the law by all means, but this is all a bit knee-jerk especially given that eyewitness accounts don’t seem to report any racist insults from JG. Unless, of course, LVMH wants to turf him out and just used this as an excuse, which is a whole other can of worms.

  24. Dru Says:

    And seriously, on another note: I wish fashion took accusations of sexual harassment (see: Terry Richardson*) as seriously as they took ones of anti-Semitism.

    I mean, Galliano gets suspended from work on the basis of an allegation, while Richardson pressures at least one of his models into performing a sex act (which she goes on the record- name and all- about), and goes completely unpunished.

    *actually, on second thoughts, don’t. Scarred eyeballs will result from a google search.

  25. EJ Says:

    It’s been a real eye-opener to see how many people have been so quick to jump to Galliano’s defence (‘oh he must have been under pressure- implicit acceptance of his actions’, ‘these other people say it wasn’t true- despite the fact it’s reported that most witnesses sided with the couple’s side of the story’). I’ve even seen someone on that Huffington post website claim after the Sun’s video has appeared that it is ‘political correctness’ that Natalie Portman chose not to wear one of his gowns to the Oscars, rather than that woman making a personal decision about something quite controversial.

  26. EJ Says:

    Ooh, and now Vogue.it joins in on the ‘he was drunk so it’s fine’ http://www.vogue.it/en/people-are-talking-about/last-short-notes/2011/02/galliano-antisemitic-video

  27. Kellie Says:

    Oh god.
    I may be having a plate of crow for breakfast.
    What in the hell???
    And someone just happened to video it??
    I dont get it-the girls in the video are laughing at him.

    And he is apparently an asshole.
    I am so disillusioned.

  28. Dru Says:

    ^I know- what was all the giggling for?

    I never expect fashion people to be, well, nice people, but to be faced with this is, well, “disappointing” would be putting it mildly. Ugh.

  29. Kellie Says:

    I feel a conspiracy theory brewing with me……
    But before I start-drunk is no answer for anything EVER. that is so lame…

    #1- The Sun “newspaper”
    they are about as reliable as the Enquirer used to be. The Fact that they have the video, and are at the center smacks of suspicion to me.
    They are the ones who did the sting on Fergie and got her to ask for half a million pounds for access to her former husband, from some guy they planted.

    #2-the laughing of the girls. If anyone was insulting me, and I had no idea they were someone famous, I would NOT BE LAUGHING and filming.
    I would be so angry I couldnt speak or think.

    #3-what happened that even brought up Jews at all???

    #4-it has been mentioned that Dior wanted rid of him anyway, and that is why they were so quick to “suspend” him.
    Did they set this up???

    I think the whole thing is totally awful. but strange in a way that I cant put my finger on.

    YET…

  30. EJ Says:

    Kellie- so ‘someone’ FORCED him to say those things? Keep on drinking that koolaid…

  31. Nickie Frye Says:

    Forget those things, Jane should buy everything in the Spring Lookbook I just published! WooHoo! :D Wait, nah, it’s not her style. Best to stick with the pumps. Carry on.

  32. kellie Says:

    EJ, I didnt say forced anywhere.

    Please at least read what I say before criticizing me. That is only fair.

  33. EJ Says:

    Kellie- you implied it. Who says I have to be fair?
