    Jane (and Mom!) I hope you realize that you are going places. People are organically noticing you and your talent and passion. Keep up the amazing work, (all while tackling high school, no doubt!) I applaud you, and love reading your fantastic blog!

  2. you have there three of my favourite movies ( i have never heard of blood tea and string though)+ my favourite artwork by egon schiele . amazing!

  3. Ally says:

    The title page says “they’re ages 14 to 16, Miu Miu and Prada are their religion, and they have a wardrobe to make Eva Longoria jealous. Here are these “baby trendsetters” who are changing the world.”
    The article talks about a box in the attic with vintage fashion from the 80’s, then goes on to say how you’re a “fashion addict” with an interesting shoe obsession, and how shoes are the only thing you can be creative with at school, because of the uniforms. It talks about how nothing exciting goes on in Texas, so you have to make up stories and personalities, and then says that you’re very fashonable (naturally). Then it explains steampunk, and how you don’t follow the silly trends.
    All in all, a lovely article indeed.

  4. Sandra says:

    Haha I was going to translate the article for you but Ally has done a good job of doing that already!
    Congratulations Jane!!! It is SUCH an honor to be in French Vogue…you deserve every bit of it. I adore your style :)

  5. Brigadeiro says:

    I recently posted on ‘In the Mood for Love’ as one of my favourite movies and fashion inspirations, cool to see it on your board! Ahd oh my, that editorial is unreal! GORGEOUS!
    Speaking of unreal, it must be so surreal to be featured in a magazines such as Teen Vogue, Glamour France…And why not? Your style is so awe-inspiring! Congratulations ;)

  6. Priya says:

    Just wanted to say you and your mum have the most impeccable taste and you both always look stunning. Btw I love Kubrick, Schiele and WKW too! If you’re a fan of Schiele I suggest you check out Gustav Klimt– I think you’ll enjoy his paintings as well. I really enjoy reading your posts, congrats on being featured, and I wish you and your mum all the best. Thanks for sharing your life with us :)

    anyone wanna provide a word by word translation?

  8. reader in DC says:

    Funny you should ask – Jane, I love your blog & it is an inspiration, figured this was the least I can do! I’m afraid I am rusty at French though, and so this translation is not so elegant, the original is much better to read. :) Please anyone correct if I’ve made an error or there is a better word – I know there is a better way to say “pointu” but it escapes me at this late hour!
    >>They are named Jane, Kristen, Arabelle and Chloe, they live in the United States, and all seem to have walked right out of a fashion magazine. Designer pieces, oversize necklaces, high heels, they perfectly master the codes of the “it girl.” Models? Fashion editors? No, just high schoolers who love to go shopping with their mothers. Except that in their closets, you’ll find Miu Miu shoes and Chanel jackets and that with their knowledge of fashion, they’d be able to hold a conversation with Carine Roitfled. More innovators than fashionistas, they don’t follow trends, they influence them. They’ve all already posed for Teen Vogue, and the sites of Jane and Arabelle have shaken up the blogosphere. Elizabeth Spiridakis, style blogger for the New York Times, admits to have almost “cried” in discovering Arabelle’s blog, stunned by the young woman’s stylistic maturity, and the French blogger Punky B. was flabbergasted when stumbling upon Jane’s blog: “I devoured it all at once, it was impossible to stop.” Drunk on “fashion based shows” – television programs dedicated to fashion – and others, Gossip Girl, they study the fashion culture like pros. They’re combing through magazines, spending hours in vintage boutiques, and creating “mood boards” – the tableaus used by fashion editors – which they show on their blogs. So Miley Cyrus, the heroine of the Disney show “Hannah Montana,” photographed by Annie Leibovitz for the cover of “Vanity Fair” at age 15, doesn’t really make an impression on them. Kristin is starting an online fashion magazine, while Chloe celebrated her 15th birthday backstage at New York fashion week. Attention – they’ve arrived! Kate Moss and her friends had better watch out.
    The most specialized
    At the Aldriges’, fashion is passed from mother to daughter. So, once the former, who was a model in Japan during the 80’s, decides that Jane is old enough to be initiated, she’ll go find a box in the basement. “I remember it like it was yesterday. ‘For Jane’ was written on it. And inside, all of my mother’s vintage Comme des Garcons. That was my first emotional response to clothes.” Today, Jane is a true “fashion addict,” who cultivates an obsession very specifically for shoes. Boots, stilettos, sandals, wedges… she has dozens of pairs in her closet. “It’s the first thing that other girls look at when I arrive at school in the morning. And, with uniforms required, the only eccentricity that’s allowed.” On her blog,, she shows her “mood boards,” posts photos of her outfits and transforms her shopping trips with her mother and sister into mini news reports.. when she isn’t hunting for couture pieces on eBay to kill time. “In Texas, where I live, not much happens. It makes you want to invent your own stories, to create personalities.” Her precise, sophisticated look gave her the chance to pose for Teen Vogue and for Refinery 29, a very in-vogue American fashion site.
    Her dress code for winter: the “steam-punk.” But.. what’s that? It’s science-fiction written today that takes place in the 19th century. To translate into aesthetic terms: a Victorian inspiration. To translate to the level of shoes: a pair of laced up boots by the Belgian designer Anne Demeulemeester, to look for on her blog.
    What she’ll never wear: the must-have piece of the moment, the one that’s in all the magazines, on all the young women. The worst “fashion faux pas” according to Jane: to never take any risks.

  9. Brigadeiro says:

    Thanks for the translation DC! Shame we don’t have the next few pages ;)

  10. Natacha says:

    Hi, it’s the first time I post a comment on your blog, even if I read it very often!! I see you was on Glamour french, I live in France (my english is not very well but I expect you understand me ^^)! That Glamour says in this article is SO lovely, you are for this magazine an exemple and a model for the “blog world”.

  11. kajsa says:

    Just wanted to say that I borrowed some pics from your blog during the last couple of weeks for postings at my blog. Hope its okey otherwise I will of course take them away!?!
    Made a post about what makes me happy when autumn is making my northern parts of Sweden a chilly colourless place to live in. And your blog is certainly a inspiration when my brain is running mad in lack of whattowear-thoughts!
    So thanks. And again, I hope it was okey of me to borrow some pics. (if you want to se the post just follow the link to my blog)

  17. Kitty Manoir says:

  18. nina says:

    you should really do the next “mothers and doughters” shooting for the french fashion label comptoir des cotonniers from paris!
    you both are gorgeous!

I adore the way you both style yourselves & your lives. Your passion for fashion & life shines through. It is so rare these days to find an original content blog… so please keep creating your life & always stay true to yourselves.
    Congratulations on the French Glamour article. It is wonderful & you surely deserve it.

  20. Manon says:

    Je suis française . Fan de Mode , mais pas aussi mordue que toi . ^^
    Je t’ai découvert grâce à GLAMOUR . Et j’adore ta façon d’être .
    Bref …
    Bonne continuation .
    P.S: I’m sorry , je ne parle pas bien anglais =S .

  21. shopgirl says:

    hey, i’m a french girl and i just read the article in glamour !
    i had already been on your blog so it was a nice surprise to see you in !
    your margiela shoes are incredible btw !
    keep posting your fabulous looks, you and your mom look great !
    Congrats !

  22. Laura says:

    First of all congratulations for the blog, it´s great! I would love to check the blogs of the other girls featured in the “Princeses Fashions” article, but I don´t live in France, so I can´t buy the magazine, could somebody please post the links to their blogs?
    Thanks a lot!

  23. Jeanne says:

    They only tell good things about you, that french fashion bloggers like punky b couldn’t just leave your blog how much they liked it !
    Just keep doing it, it is awesome-

  24. escritora says:

    congratulation :) article in French Glamour isn’t something usual :)

  25. Erin says:

    Pointu actually means edgy in french fashion speak. It means “sharp” normally. I am American but have lived both in France and the US and I actually found your blog through Punky B! I normally read only the french fashion blogs because I prefer their style but you are my exception. Keep up the good work!
    BTW, I also second the suggestion above that you think about doing Comptoir des Cotonniers “meres et Filles” campaign. You and your mom would be shoo-ins, though you might have to go to London for casting, I don’t think they do them in the US:(

  26. Clotilde says:

    I read the article from Glamour (that’s why I’m here), then I wondered if this site was that incredible, and, oh Yes, I think so.
    The links for the other blogs are:
    and there’s nothing told about the last girl…

  27. Céline says:

    I’m extremely jealous I’ve gotta say.

  34. Ariane says:

    Hey!!! I don’t want to sound like all the other french girl who read the article and who wrote comment above but i think you are amazing.
    I already knew about your site but i never thought about writing a comment.
    It was pretty funny because when i read the article in Glamour this afternoon i was: “whoaw i know this girl”
    and then i read the article and i think it was quite good.
    It actually says everything i think about you:
    A real fashionista who knows about fashion (obviously) and who really likes shoes,…
    No seriously i really love your tastes and i shall wish you well and good luck for the future.

  35. Mike says:

  47. PM says:

    I personally think this jacket looks tacky. Due to the added lace doiley on the sleeves and collar lining. Looks 90s and not in a appealing way-

  48. Becca says:

    how amazingly fantastic is that article! If you want a translation I can oblige. You are fabulous – congrats on the feature!

  54. victoria says:

    I saw you in the french glamour! you do a really nice job!
    btw they do not translate it to you?!

  55. Mathilda says:

    I’m so jealous of your billion of pair of shoes!
    I’m UNFORTUNATELY french (hyaaa, my dream’z to live in London, but it wont happen before I finish high school )
    and I read the text bout you in GLAM
    and oh my god, it made me so amazed to see that there are gurlz who are my age and who are able to have so nice clothes and shoes. Of course, they do have a fantastic sense of style and fashion, but i mean it s easier to have a nice style when you can have all the clothes you want…
    My style is a mix of punk and vintage (crazy mix yup I know) but it s not alwayz easy for me to find THE pair of jeans or THE right T-shirt becuz:
    -I live in a little town where there’s not a lot of shops (unfortunately)
    -I havnt got a lot of money…
    ANYWAY, I wont tll you my whole life (even if I know it would interest you so much huhu) and I just wanted to tell you that you make me very very jealous and that your blog looks great.
    muxus muxus

  56. Loïse says:

    Hi!I was going to translate it but it’s already done!
