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. Asking readers to interpret their favorite spring runway look, people came up with all sorts of crazy things from paintings and illustrations to ” dolls, cakes, animals, and dresses made of paint swatches.” You can see a huge gallery of the submissions on her Flickr page, or check out the latest entry to see her top 15. They’re really quite impressive! [Sea of Shoes]

Shoe Porn: Balmain’s Oh-So-Sparkly Sandals

Another day, another pair of shoes (well, for the lucky Jane Aldridge). We just had to share this snap from Sea of Shoes of this impossibly impractical, sparkly, studded pair of Balmain heels. Tell us these don’t make you weak in the knees. [Sea of Shoes] 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 »

Grandmas Say The Darndest Things: “Munchkin Land” Is Code For Vagina

We’ve heard a lot of effed up nicknames for the female genitalia (the bearded clam? Hot pocket? Countess Olenska?), but teen fashion blogger Jane Aldrige‘s grandmother’s term may take the cake. In a Twitter update, Jane says her grandma calls her lady parts “Munchkin Land.” Just think about this for a second. Munchkin. Land. [Twitter] Keep reading »

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?
