Inspired by Jane

ABC Family premiered it's new show Jane by Design about four weeks ago. The premise is high school social outcast, Jane, played by Erica Dasher, masquerades as an adult to work in the fashion industry. In my opinion, it has the kitsch of Ugly Betty, a dash of The Devil Wears Prada and a smidge of Sex in the City.

It's not bad, but overall, I'm not yet sure how I feel about the show itself, but I've watched purely for the awesome clothes. After catching up, thanks to a mini OnDemand marathon, I was inspired to recreate a couple of my fav looks from the show.

This first look, though void of any bright color, was actually my fav and one I plan to recreate for myself. Also, it was not on one of the show's main characters, which is why I couldn't get a better image...

All About Birdie

Charlotte Russe scoop neck t shirt, $7.99
High waist harem pants, $39
Patent pumps, $47
Braided necklace, $39

There weren't a lot of overall looks on Jane that I loved, though I loved several of the pieces separately. However, this one stood out for me and I feel it could translate easily into real life, depending on your office.

No Plain Jane

Striped dress, $43
Navy pocketed blazer, $31
Charlotte Russe bow shoes, $33
Turquoise jewelry, $22
ASOS leather flower belt, $18

All of Jane's actual pieces come from retailers such as Zara TRF and Theory, but for both of my inspired looks I managed to keep all of my pieces priced at under $50.

If you checked out the show and were curious about a specific piece, you may be able to find it listed in the Jane style diaries on the ABC Family site:

So are you loving the fashion that this new series has to offer?
