Random on Sunday morning

Earlier this week I was playing around with these Christopher Ross butterflies-they are actually belt buckles.
If you want to know more about C. Ross you should head over to my mom's blog, she's the Christopher Ross expert!
Shelley has been the best dog in the world lately-normally she is *very* naughty but lately she has been very cuddly and well-behaved. I guess she's just getting out of her puppy phase.
Ann Demeulemeester lace-ups-so comfy, I wear them like some people wear flip flops. Wearing them with some cobwebby tights from Forever 21.
Shelley & Staci & me chilling out on the day bed.
Shelley hops in my lap for a web-cam shot…
Shelley looks pissed that I'm not taking this picture seriousely…sorry Shelley.
I'm wearing a vintage Givenchy necklace my mom got on eBay-sooo incredible, it has since been polished and looks even better.
And since this post is already pretty random, here is a random assortment of my favorite things I made.
First row: 1. Harry Dean Stanton, current favorite actor. I love his face. 2. Perdita Durango, my alter ego &favorite Lynch character ever, appears briefly in Wild at Heart played by Issabella Rosselini. 3. A favorite picture of Kate Moss.
Second Row: 4. A favorite portrait by Egon Schiele 5. Vintage French Vogue-I wish their photographers & models were still around. 6. David Lynch 7. Serge Lutens Serge Noire, my favorite perfume.
Third Row: 8. The soundtrack to Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence, composed by Ryuichi Sakamoto. 9. Seated Woman by Vasili Nikolaevich, 1918 10. Currently reading Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon 11. Marfa, Tx-my next travel destination. 
Fourth Row: 12. Helmut Newton's Illustrated No. 4-Dr. Phantasme 13. Katsuhiro Otomo's steampunk anime Steamboy 14. David Byrne 15. The soundtrack to Bilitis, composed by Francis Lai. 16. A graffitied truth that makes me laugh
Have a pleasant Sunday :)

    This is how David Bowie feels about being left off of your collage:
    (I’m sorry, I’ve been waiting forever to use that gif. He likes ur outfit though)

  2. Jane says:

  7. Veronique says:

    The model on the French Vogue is singer/actress Marie Laforet. If you like her, you should rent the movie “Purple Noon” (“Plein Soleil”), an earlier version of “The Talented Mr. Ripley”.

  8. daphne says:

    you will appreciate that two of my three cats (the eldest two) are named after Wild at Heart characters Lula and Sailor! When I got them 3 1/2 years ago I was obsessed with that movie and since they were boy and girl it seemed appropriate. I love your tights and of course the shoes as well.

    The tights are cute, I’ve definitely ruined more than one pair of knitted stockings by getting my foot caught in the holes haha.

  42. Norway says:

    Hi, I`m a new reader (can`t remember where I found the link…). Nice blog! I`m quite fascinated with the amount of shoes that you and your mom have. How many shoes do you buy in a month or a year (average?) I guess that you must be quite comfortable money-wise ;-), but don`t you ever get guilty with buying so many shoes? I do, especially if I buy two pairs that are kind of similar and within a short space of time. And one more question – when do you wear the shoes? Most of your amazing shoes are extremely high, and must be a pain to walk in for even a couple of hours! Do you wear them around the house or when you are having a cup og coffee in a cafe, or when walking around for hours doing errands? Do you ever wear flat shoes? (I guess that was two more questions…;-))

  43. Midge says:

    Stunning photos! And I love how you show your goofy side. I think I may need those butterfly belt buckles… dreamy :)

  44. adrienne says:

    haha looks like a great sunday! i love those cob-web tights and that necklace…oh my.

  47. Brigadeiro says:

    The first pic is so stunning! LOVE your funky tights with the Ann D’s! :)

  48. Libby says:

    I’m only popular on the internet, lol! Love that butterfly buckle, it looks like a perfect thing to pair with a floral 90’s dress!

  49. lizzy webb says:

    that dog is so totally cute.

  50. Emily says:

    those ann d’s are to DIE for!
    ps. i love your blog :)

  51. those chunky necklaces are amazing!!

  52. Farren says:

    ooh. dark eyebrows and light hair!

  53. Kim says:

    I adore that big floppy hat and those butterflies!
    And I’ve been wanting to go to Marfa as well! I just read about the Marfa Lights and am quite intriqued. It’d be so great to see them.

  54. Dana says:

    wowow. that first photo, and the tights/shoes shot are truly inspiring. spectacular. amazing. not even overstating this! amazing!

  55. Your dog is so adorable and those belt buckles are sweeeet!

    Question though, I’m back in Tulsa for about a week and I’m wondering what some great thrift stores are that you would recommend. I’ll try emailing you as well.
    Me & Marisa

  58. Joan says:

    Rockin’ two different nail polish colors (toes v. fingernails), I like it! I always thought having the same color toes and nails would look a bit overwhelming…
    Anywho, lovely buckles and jewelry!

  62. Jealous of the shoes! Loving the butterfly belt buckles as well.

  63. Jealous of the shoes! Loving the butterfly belt buckles as well.

  64. jay says:

    Those butterflys would make a dope shirt pattern.

  65. I would die to have one of those butterflies. They’re gorgeous.
    I have a vintage brass one, but the gold plating has tarnished & corroded and I have no idea how to have it repaired or if it can still be repaired.

  66. Emily says:

    I saw a feature on your blog in an old issue of Teen Vogue. It seemed really interesting so I came to take a look. I’m from Dallas and I’ve been through Marfa a couple of times. I thought you’d like to know that about 40 minutes outside of Marfa on the the way to Valentine, Texas there’s an art installation by two German artists. It’s a Prada store seemingly in the middle of nowhere. It’s definitely worth taking a look at, and it would be a great place for a shoot!

  67. Hi Jane, great pictures. Love the Butterfly buckles especially. Ha ha! Your face with Shelley looks kind of Joker in the Batman movie :D That’s something interesting! Love wackiness! :D Very entertaining. And all your weekends to come will be filled with fun & peace! Cheers~

  68. Aster says:

    I love you so much Jane ! <3
    Do you mind giving a simple tutorial on how to take amazing photos like yours ?
    The color and lighting is always awesome !

  69. Corrie says:

  85. Naiara says:

    Dear Jane;
    I have been following you for a while and though our style is million years apart i would like to say how inspiring you are. A 16 year old girl living in such a small town and going against odds. I have always wondered what your classmates think about you and the way you dress. Not every one understands what clothes express and it is usuall to think about the ridiculousness of an outfit. If one day you wake up feeling that you have too many shoes or clothes and that you need to get rid of a small part of your treasure…just let you know that my wardrobe it’s not full yet.Haha.
    Besos desde España.

  86. Nata says:

    I’m also a new reader to your blog, Sea of Shoes. I saw it featured in Teen Vogue a while back, but never got a chance to actually engross myself in it. And, I find it enchanting. You’re such a gorgeous girl, and the outfits you compile along with your handy dandy glorious shoes is truly amazing. (: I wish my mom were half the fashionista your mom is. Well, I guess we all have different roles in life. Anyways, lovely blog and lovely everything. Those Christopher Ross butterfly buckles are divine, and I was meaning to ask you a question, although I’m sure a lot of other people have questions too. These adorable outfits, do you wear them out in public on a regular basis? Or do you just wear them for your blog?
    Hope you have a wonderful week!
    – Nata

  87. Nata says:

    Oh and your dog is the most adorable thing I have ever seen. (If my yorkie heard this, she would truly hate me for life), what breed is she?

  88. Isabel says:

    peace and love

  92. Lisa says:

  93. Melanie says:

    I just posted butterflies in my hair a few days ago on my blog. That’s a very fun picture Ms. Lady! I’ve loved them ever since the beginning of Mariah Carey and her obsession with them. Check it out =)

  94. Cailey says:

    your make-up is absolutely amazing in these pictures!
    Ecspecially in the first ones with the smokey -eye thing you got going on there, and then in the later ones with that bright red lipstick.
    Absolutely amazing!
    Do you do it all yourself? If you do, I’m in much admiration!

  95. Krista says:

  97. Cassandra says:

    I think that the Givenchy necklace may be the find of the decade! I only wonder what yr. it was…and polish always makes things look nice, could anyone give me some recomandations on products that are gentle and do the job well?

  98. Clau says:

  99. emmz says:

    LOVE your blog! I stumbled across it a few days ago in vogue, and sat down and just read the whole thing today! also, i was wondering if you’d ever tried Irregular Choice? They’re a kitschy cool UK line with a flair I think you’ll love! Also, very reasonably priced! happy shopping!

  100. a.n.e says:

    yay!! thumbs up for ryuichi and steamboy! i want some ann d!!!;P

  102. joanne says:

    I’m trying to say this in the nicest way, you need to lay off the lipstick.

  103. Hélène says:

    Fabulous photos!! Your shots are always great, but these are really amazing :)

  104. dreamsequins says:

    You’ve got the most sophisticated taste… Thomas Pynchon? Really??? I know he has a new book out, but Gravity’s Rainbow is just unreadable.
    I adore that Givenchy necklace that your mom got on eBay!

  105. MIKE says:

    Lynch is a killer inspiration. Too bad his fashion commercials suck.

  106. Amanda says:

    I just love the second photo. I stole it (A) and it’s my new background on my pc. I love the colours.

  117. diogo says:

    i really like schiele
    he’s one of my favorite artrists i really like the colors and the style of his line it’s very unique and expressive; but the best thing it’s how well he can express the female form with that decandent side without forgeting the inocence
    his work it’s really an inspiration

  118. ayura says:
