Sea of Shoes is taking a two week hiatus

I’m afraid I won’t be updating Sea of Shoes for the time that I will be in Madrid and Bilbao with my school…we were forbidden to bring our laptops and judging from the itinerary, I’ll hardly have any free time anyway. I’m excited to see Spain-never been before…I leave at 8 in the morning tomorrow!

Today I had the best time shopping at my favorite places with my mom and my sister again. Don’t get me wrong-I love to shop with my friends-but no one else I know has patience (let alone enthusiasm) for trying on at least fifty pieces of Comme Des Garcons, Junya Watanabe, Y-3, etc. What a bonding experience, haha…well, everything we do together is a bonding experience. It’s so fun living in an all-girl household- where you can watch 80’s soap operas till 2 AM and play dress up around the clock…I don’t know how I’m going to live without them for the next two weeks! I’ll miss you so much, mom and Carol. and dad! :) (oh and my doggies too-Sash, Townsend, Staci, Norman, and Denise!)

Another thing I’ll miss? BLOGGING!
You don’t know how exciting it has been for a supressed fashionista living in BFE (srry) to have an outlet for her obsession. The response I’ve been getting is amazing and the recent increase in my hits is pretty shocking…thanks to all the new and regular readers for checking back! :) I know I don’t always reply to my comments…I don’t know if this is because I’m shy or because I’m busy…probably some of both. But I guess two weeks isn’t that long to be away-I’m sure going to be glad to get home though.

So until then, yours truly and love always,

    I just found your blog and I am so amazed!! You are so young yet have such a strong, developed sense of style, no doubt due to your mother’s fashion nurturing. You love so many shoes that I love and it’s great to see someone wearing them (I also long for Junya Watanabe’s studded boots from Fall 2006).
    I notice that you don’t wear stilletos or any Christian Louboutin/Manolo Blahnik shoes; it’s fascinating to see someone with such a fervent direction in personal style.

    Oh, honey…you’ve no idea what BFE is if you’re living just outside Dallas and can still shop at places that carry Commes de Garcons, Watanabe, and Y-3 (to use your examples). Try having to drive an hour just for an Express or a Target lol

    Auuuugh! Lucky girl, I’m hoping to go this summer provided the father is well / in flyable condition again!
    I will miss your fantastically whimsical outfits for me to be inspired by / water down into something I could wear without betraying the fact that my beyond preppy grandmother is my biggest inspiration of all.
    However, your older photos aren’t working.. how will I get by these two weeks?
    Oh, ps, my name is Mary, and I lurk your blog on a daily basis. Thought I might de lurk.

    Ah! I really want to see the blue shoes of which brand I can’t remember. I’m feeling inspired and I didn’t put them in my folder on my computer titled “Inspiration.” I hope you’re having a wonderful time, and when you get back I’ll be done with my freshman year, finally!

    Your blog is one of my favorites! I’m amazed how intelligent you are with fashion at your age. And you have the best shoe collection ever. You have incredible taste. Those Japanese and Belgian designers are such geniuses.
    I hope you’re having a great time in Spain. I hope you don’t mind that I put a link to your site in my poor excuse for a blog. :)
