Sea of Shoes' New Blog
It's, um, original. Read More »

Jane Aldridge is the 20-year-old behind the very popular fashion blog Sea of Shoes. She’s also, from what we can tell from the profile of her in the new issue of Texas Monthly, kind of a precocious brat. Aldridge, who still lives at home in Dallas, Texas, with her stage mother-ish mom Judy, seems to exist in some bizarre “Grey Garden”s-flecked universe, in which she and her mother are overly chummy, and spend their days on overly-elaborate photoshoots featuring Jane’s opulent shoe collection.

Right off, from the profile, we can tell that Jane’s got a bit of an attitude. ”Hello!” she huffs at the Texas Monthly reporter who is holding a pair of glitter Miu Miu booties. ”I’m trying to shoot those. Can you put them down?”  Keep reading »

Check Out Some Of The Awesome Fashion Art From Sea Of Shoes’ Contest

Here’s a testament to just how loyal readers of fashion blogs are: when Sea of Shoes blogger Jane Aldridge announced an art contest on her site, she received hundreds of submissions.

Tavi And Sea Of Shoes Party It Up For Halloween

Well, you can file this under “awesome costumes I should have thought of before.” Brad Goreski and a friend went to Lanvin’s Halloween party (um, jealous much?) dressed as America’s most loved fashion bloggers: Tavi and Jane Aldridge. If you’re playing Jane, all you need is a red wig and a super designer outfit (an easy cop-out if you just want to look cute). For Tavi: a couple weird layers of clothing, a crazy hair color, and a big-ass bow. [Show Ponies and Pretty People] Keep reading »

Jane Aldridge Constantly Violated Dress Code—Did Your Outfits Get You In Trouble, Too?

When you’re a teenager and have a closet like Sea of Shoes blogger Jane Aldridge, you’d imagine that the high school halls would be your runway. Turns out, Jane’s dreams were often cut short because she was constantly getting in trouble at school for her fashion choices. In this video (starting around 42 seconds), she explains that “I felt so repressed by public school, how, like, they tried to make every kid the same and if you didn’t wear the same thing as everyone else then you had to go to, like, a special class … I was sent to the office everyday for the shoes I wore.” We admit that we were sometimes reprimanded for violating dress code—although our belly tops and showing bra straps were a far cry from Chanel platform heels.

What about you—were you ever sent to the principal’s office for your high school wardrobe? Did you act out with fashion as a teen? [Stylelikeu] Keep reading »

Jane Aldridge’s Cockroach Necklace: Chic Or Eeek?

Sea Of Shoes Blogger’s New Blog Is … Conceptual?

Jane Aldridge, the lucky teen behind fashion blog Sea of Shoes is no stranger to multitasking. Aside from the many projects and collaborations she takes on with her mom and designers, she also maintains another photo blog called They Don’t Call Them Lovers in High School, Leeland. Yesterday, Jane tweeted a link to yet another blog endeavor, explaining that she “always has a new secret blog.” This one is called BeautyStyleShopping, although we don’t see how any of the posts relate to those subjects. Using photo collages or plain images completely out of context, there’s no text explanation either for what the blog is trying to achieve. We guess this is what you might call, uh, artsy?

Family Jewels: Sea Of Shoes Launches Jewelry Line With Her Aunt

Sea of Shoes blogger Jane Aldridge has got some good family genes. For starters, you can see it in her face, thanks to a former model mom. But Jane and her mother have also managed to put their smarts to good use together, collaborating on their blogs and designing capsule collections for big names. Now, Jane’s aunt Karen is getting in on the action. Together, they’re launching a jewelry line of over-sized nature-inspired pieces. Jane explains that Karen has a background in entomology, so it makes sense that their first creation is a huge buckle belt in the shape of a beetle. From the looks of the high prices ($600) and artisan craftsmanship, it seems that these babies will probably be on special order. But for something this beetletastic? We’d expect no less.

A Look At Jane Aldridge’s And Other Debs’ Crillon Ball Gowns

Once a year, the crème de la crème of international teenage society gets invited to the fancy Crillon Ball in Paris. It’s a debutante ball, so the focus, of course, is on the girls, who range in status from royalty to daughters of industry billionaires. It’s the ultimate coming-out party hyped mainly for the fashion. Each deb gets presented in some crazy couture, if not made specifically for them, then straight off the runway.

This year, Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes fame managed to score an invite, making her the Cinderella of the bunch. While the rest of her peers come from wealthy and noble pedigrees, Aldridge’s background doesn’t exactly compete. Of course, her celebrity blogger status probably makes her the most press-popular of the girls. Here’s Jane in her dress—Chanel Haute Couture! After the jump, a look at a few of our favorite 2009 Crillon debutantes and their dresses. [WWD] Keep reading »
