Fun with Jane and Judy: An Evening at Guess by Marciano

Ever day-dreamed of tapping out an online blog where you could write about all of your favorite things? What about having that blog lead to fame, glamor, worldwide travel and your own line of shoes? Dallas’s own Jane Aldridge has done just that.

If you’ve ever done a little clicking around online looking for fashion inspiration, you’ve surely already come across the 17-year old’s blog, Sea of Shoes, where she posts photos of her own styling ideas, inspirational fashion spreads, and of course, her unbelievable shoe collection.

Jane’s blog has paved the way for some pretty amazing things that most of us will only keep day-dreaming about. It has led to her own shoe collaboration with Urban Outfitters.

On top of that, Jane was recently recommended by Vogue to attend the Crillion Ball in Paris, where she wore Chanel Haute Couture, scoring a tour of Coco Chanel’s apartment after her fitting, and rubbed elbows with international debutantes.

Ever daydreamed about this??

Jane’s mother, Judy Aldridge, a fashion designer and vintage aficionado, attends, photographs and records events and inspiration on her own blog, Atlantis Home, and it’s very clear to see where Jane got much of her fabulous styling ability:

Last night Jane and Judy Aldridge hosted a festive event at Guess by Marciano benefiting Cook Children’s Medical Center in the Dallas Galleria. It was a sparkling event with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, makeup touch ups and hair by Toni and Guy, lots of glamorous goodies to try on, and a swag bag containing a Swarovski crystal bejeweled December issue of Harper’s Bazaar!

I enjoyed meeting and talking with Judy and Jane…we compared a few shopping and blogging notes. If these ladies are any indication of where a day-dream can lead, I’m definitely going to keep doing it!
