blog of the week | Sea of Shoes

This week's blog is Sea of Shoes created and curated by Jane Aldridge.

I stumbled upon her blog a couple years ago and I was amazed at the vibrant colors, creativity, and quirkiness that is infused in every single posting.

Jane has acclaimed notoriety among the fashion world but it is evident that she is not a slave to trends. She has caught the eye of Kanye West and has been featured in both Teen Vogue and Vogue.

I think a huge reason why I'm instinctively drawn to Jane is because she is clearly influenced by childlike illustrations, toys, bright patterns and vintage pieces that are VERY out of the ordinary.

She is obsessed with Japanese culture which is seen through her fantastic travel photography.

"Sea of Shoes" is always a good reminder to not follow trends blindly, to let your freak flag fly, and not ever be ashamed to play with toys. Well done, Jane Aldridge. Well done.
