Sure, I thought I was pretty high fashion as a teen. I was more daring than most even in the face of older bullies like a guy named Nathan that was always giving me grief about my hats (junior high found me in a rasta skull cap – even though I had no idea what rasta was, later I'd occasionally don a straw cowboy hat but more often a purple 1930's vintage cloche or a leopard print pillbox).
But all the Salvation Army leather biker jackets (which, mom if you're reading this, I'd love to try and find buried in my closet on my next trip home), baby vintage ringer tees, and crinkled maxi skirts in the world were never any match for the forward fashions found on Sea of Shoes.
The blogger's name is Jane Aldridge and she is in high school, armed with a wardrobe full of Martin Margiela, Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten, and Balenciaga AND, most importantly the creative sense to put it all together beautifully. It's almost enough to make you sick, except it doesn't at all.
Regardless of her age and privilege, you can't deny her wonderful taste, especially in shoes (obviously) and her inspiration collages are indeed, well, inspirational. She's also adorable like a half elf little sister and seems like a nice girl?though this Lillie Rubin dress does admittedly have me a little green with envy.
