LAST DAY OF THE TRIP//checking out joan shepp

One of the stores on my hit-list here in Philadelphia was Joan Shepp…ever since I visited their online store a couple of weeks ago I have been in love with this Ivan Grundahl wired taffeta skirt.

and today I got it!! It's kind of whacky and dramatic-I cant wait to wear it with my Comme des Garcons 'glove' shirt. The tails on that coat + the drama of this skirt are made for eachother, in my opinion.
(No pictures of it on for now…I was going to wear it to dinner tonight but I think I'm going to stay in and try to sleep off my cold)

My mom and I were lucky enough to meet Joan Shepp when we went-she was so cool and has incredible style! She took us down to her basement, where she kept her special pieces of Yohji Yamamoto and vintage. Awesome stuff!! Joan also had this fantastic Junya Watanabe jacket on display.

It's made out of paper, wow!

Joan wasn't the only one in the store with great personal style, I loved Tuesday's outfit: head to toe Junya Watanbe! Her top had a flowered hood too.


Isn't she so cool?!

Today my mom wore the Hussein Chalayan jacket I mentioned yesterday-the wool scarf is actually attached to the jacket. She also wears Ray Ban glasses, Levi's jeans, and her single lace Ann Demeulemeester boots.
I should also mention that my mom was able to find one of the Martin Margiela shoulder pad jackets at Joan Shepp. As I am writing this post in our hotel room, she is getting ready to go out for dinner and she's wearing it with vintage paint-splattered 501's and her Ann Demeulemeester boots and it looks amazing!


As for me, I am sooooo over the all-black wardrobe I packed for this trip. (Well I did bring my marbled Dries van Noten dress-wore that a couple of times over pants) But today I wore the Rick Owens coat and Ann Sofie Back sweater again, with a vintage Japanese kimono sash (worn as a scarf) and my  triple lace Ann Demeulemeester boots.

(Hah. We're wearing the same boots-slightly different versions, but hey they are awfully comfortable to walk around in)


and before I sign off…..a very very exciting purchase from Joan Shepp..

These Dries van Noten shoes are BEAUTIFUL!
I loved every piece of this collection-apparel, jewelry, and shoes but this pair was a special stand-out. The color of the leather straps is so rich and they are gorgeous mixed with the thinner black satin straps. Seriousely, these shoes are perfection-just look at the curve of the base of the heel, it is exactly the right curviture for this shoe because it matches the arch of the sole.

Not to mention that these shoes look good with everything!

This trip has yielded amazing finds. I wish I could have gone to the vintage stores everyone has been telling me about here (and thank you to readers who emailed me reccomentations!) but they wouldn't even have wanted me in the store, this cold is soo disgusting. It's been kind of a culture shock just walking down the streets here in Philadelphia and New York-you process as much information walking one block here as you would walking for a whole hour where I live! Pretty overwhelming.

I'm going to be happy once I get back to Dallas tomorrow afternoon-I miss my dogs like crazy.

xox Jane

    OMGosh! What amazing amazing buys! I tried those DVN shoes during my last trip to Melbourne, and wish I had bought them (I was still hunting the jewelled/sequinned pair I missed out on, doh!), and the skirt! AMAZING! I love Joan Shepp (online for me only), and the stuff she stocks is just gorgeous! Tuesday’s outfit is divine, as is your mother’s (LOVE the Hussein Chalayan jacket), and of course yours too! Love the floral tights with the AD boots & that amazing Ann Sofie Back sweater.
    Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous!

    I love fashion, I love design, but the fact that you post about shopping for a $700 skirt and designer shoes while the world economy is collapsing, terrorists strike a major city and the whole ‘normal’ starving children around the world thing continues is appalling. Do you care about the outside world at all? Do you do any philanthropy or at least donate money to charities or causes to offset your frivolous spending? Your youth and your passion for fashion are not excuses — you clearly have amazing opportunities, a quick mind and an eye for detail. Why not use them to the wider world’s advantage instead of your closet’s?

    Whilst I’m not saying what Jane does is on the level of Bach, it is still a creative act; and to label that sort of thing “appalling” is well….a bit closeminded.

    Eden, I must agree with Anon.
    I too, love fashion and design. There is a lot to be valued and appreciated in such creativity and aesthetics. Holding such a passion does demand a certain degree of materialism, but there is a point where consumer spending becomes difficult to justify.
    What perturbs me, is that people are willing to pay exuberant amounts of money for clothing items on a regular basis. Which is why such a large market exists for $700 skirts, designer shoes, etc.
    Regardless of whether we can afford these items, the majority of us blogreaders live very privileged and blessed lives. If we look beyond us, there is a world raging out there. SO much need, and SO much we can do. We do have the capacity to alleviate a lot of the suffering in this world. We have to understand that people do not choose to enter poverty and injustice, and we were more fortunate to be born into positions that are far removed from the harshness of this world.
    So we should have a heart for our world.
    Eden, you use the word ‘closeminded’. However, that term is more appropriately applied to the fashion world. The fashion world tends to narrow its focus, but we can’t deny that it has implications on the remainder of our world. The clothing we purchase, and the materials required to make them, are often the product of labor in a developing country. The money we spend on clothing enables a fashion industry to flourish, whilst we neglect the other cares of our world. It has a predominant impact on our lives, driving us to wish we could acquire more.
    But it is possible to maintain an interest in fashion and hold a social conscience, and act upon that. This has been seen in models and industry figures that incorporate philanthropic acts in their lives. (eg. model Liya Kebede – WHO Goodwill Ambassador for maternal/child health, and founder of clothing line that empowers women in Ethiopia).
    So I only hope that we can all find a balance, and identify the need to give back to our world. Time, talent, or money – we should endeavor to apply our opportunities and talent for the greater good, as opposed to simply personal pleasure.
    So in response to what has been said, I won’t call anyone ‘appalling’, since I don’t know them personally, and their altruistic acts may not be known publicly. But it is unreasonable to parallel the creative acts of Bach and Bartok with the creative outlet of a blog. I’m not taking the higher moral ground here. I’m not on any high horse. I’m still trying to find a balance, and will hopefully get there, eventually.

    HATERS, why don’t you just stop reading the blog? This is Jane’s blog, she can post whatever she wants! If you’re so bothered by how privileged, and how fantastic her own sense of style is, then, just STOP READING AND VISITING.
    considering that the title of this blog is “sea of shoes”, you guys can hardly expect her to discuss the virtues of giving, not that you would flaunt your charitable works. jane’s blog gives us ordinary people a chance to get to know the finer things in life; since not all of us can afford to buy designer clothes, shoes, bags all the time, or some even not at all, her blog gives us a chance to enjoy them thru your experiences
    it doesn’t follow that if you enjoy the finer things in life, you are selfish and blinded to the needy.

    please ignore the ignorant comments above. We’re in a global recession. What’s the way out of a global recession? Those who can, SPENDING. When you spend $700 on a pair of shoes, you help those who work in retail, and those who make the shoes, keep their jobs. The economy isn’t helped by some ignorant bleeding hearts going around self-righteously telling bloggers that they’re not weepy eyed enough at the plight of the poor and destitute.
    people should be charitable, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a sphere within which you can guiltlessly spend on yourself. If we should all sacrifice all of our personal luxuries whilst there are poor and hungry in the world, ‘Anon’ should start by selling his or her computer and giving the proceeds to Unicef. No? I didn’t think so.

    Sofia, thanks for taking the time out to reply to my comment.
    I actually agree with you in many ways– for instance; I too believe that most clothing from a label is overpriced. But I just feel that Anon’s comment is totally overblown; it DOES sound like they’re on a high horse; whilst you don’t sound like you are. Anon’s comment came down like an assault on Jane. It’s insulting to her- she doesn’t deserve to be attacked like that.
    The other thing to remember is that a lot of fashion isn’t made in 3rd world countries; and that justifies the price to a certain extent. (I DO say certain extent; it’s a sad reality that shops have 100%+ markup margins)Especially with smaller designers, like Ivan Grundahl. It depends on the designer, of course. Some designers exist for the love of their art; others exist for making money. I think you’d fine the money-loving designers are more interested in making them in 3d world countries.
    As well as that I’m probably going to keep and use a $700 piece of clothing for longer than I’d use a cheap piece of clothing from Walmart. We all need clothes- the cheap piece of clothing is probably more likely to be produced under the labour of a 3rd word country. Which is more ethical?
    I think the word “closeminded” is better applied to Anon. Many people in the fashion indutsry are aware of poverty, etc etc…and try to do something about it. For instance that model you mentioned, Liya Kebede.
    It feels like this Anon person saw ONE entry on Jane’s blog and decided to write that….that’s what I call closeminded. How can you say something like that about someone if you don’t know them?
    This is interesting..”, driving us to wish we could acquire more.”..I don’t feel that at all. I think it’s an attitude encouraged by the fashion industry; although to be fair it’s an attitude encouraged by basically all businesess. I mean, I don’t feel this need to acquire more. Buying fashion doesn’t just let the fashion industry flourish…what about all the industries connected to it? It’s all interconnected. And again, much of what Jane buys isn’t made in a 3rd world country– her Margiela shoes; Italy, for example.
    I did say it was unreasonable to parallel the acts of Bartok and Bach to the outlet of a personal style blog; but it’s still a creative act, nevertheless. I think it’s wonderful that Jane does something creative with her clothes. I think it’s wonderful that one teenager can be independent and think for herself and not be a zombie to MTV and her peers.
    In the end, I think Anon’s comment came on as an assult, and I don’t like to see a friend of mine treated that way. It’s not so much that I disagree with you, but that I disagree the way Anon treated Jane.

    To those who find the so-called materialism blog “appalling,” I’d just note that we have no idea what Jane does with 90% of her time. She spends some of her time shopping — don’t we all? — but how do you know that she doesn’t spent other moments volunteering, or donating time and resources to help others? We all need some diversions from the sadness of the world, and I find that here — and I certainly don’t believe that thinking about shoes takes up 100% of Jane’s life. A girl CAN love clothes and help others at the same time and why would we assume she doesn’t?

    I love reading Jane’s blog and seeing her creativity. For so many young people today, it is more commonplace for them to all dress alike — being able to explore creatively like Jane does is such a great thing. Anon mentions philanthropy — none of us knows what Jane and her family do with their money yet I would be willing to bet that they do give to charitable organizations. Why cast judgement when you don’t know if they do or not. For all we know, they may donate many thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars to charities — and if they do, that’s great. Does anon donate to charity? If no, then who are you to cast judgement on others without knowing what they do or don’t do with their money.
    Do I think $700 for a skirt is excessive? At my income level, yes, it would be excessive. Do I think others shouldn’t spend that kind of money just because I don’t? No…spend your money as you see fit…it’s your money afterall.
    Someone commented whether Jane would have such style if she didn’t have this kind of money to shop. I would love to see her challenge herself to come up with some great outfits on a Macy’s/Target/Kohls kind of budget. Somehow I am quite certain she would look equally chic and will somehow manage to pair things in ways many of us never would have considered.
    Love your style Jane!

    Wow, the last time I tried to leave a comment on this blog I left out my email address and it totally screwed up my server, so I hope this works.
    Anyway, all you people who’ve been lambasting seaofshoes- please note that clothes’ prices are rarely -if ever- stated here. This blog belongs to a young girl who is excited about her purchases and puts up pictures of them. She’s not trying to show off how much money she has. Readers come to read and appreciate. We all have our own priorities when it comes to utilising our disposable income- not all of us believe in packing half of it off to third-world countries to be embezzled by corrupt organisations anyway.
    In any case, Nenuca is right to say that she spends a lot of money on one or two items. The key phrase is one or two items. You don’t see her buying piles of thousand-dollar clothing at one go- these are investment pieces. I live in Singapore, and many Singaporeans’ favourite shopping haven is Bangkok (well, back the days when the airports were actually functioning), where the food is heaven and clothing is cheap. In fact, the clothes are so cheap that most tourists leave Bangkok with whole suitcases full of new clothes. Clothes made by REALLY cheap labour in third-world countries (hell yeah Thailand is a third-world country) which last for about three months apiece, more if you’re lucky. And when they fall apart, it’s time to go back for a new spree.
    Which is the wiser shopping decision? You decide.
    And yes, I hate all the crap that’s happening in the world- I enjoy visiting this blog after reading my daily fix of CNN because it lifts my spirits! There’s nothing wrong with sharing your interests with the world, or showing only one side of you to perfect strangers on the world wide web. Blogs don’t reflect your entire life, you know- if they do that’s kinda sad, methinks.
    On another note, the clothes here are beautiful :) keep posting, seaofshoes! It’s been a while :)

  70. I agree with Michelle.
    Also, those who challenge Jane to dress in less expensive clothing, need to see that she is really good at thrift and vintage shopping, and puts a lot of great things together regardless of the designer “status” or price. She mixes things very well.
    Jane is blessed, but from what I have read and seen, I think she is also creative thoughtful and hardworking.
    Sorry to be writing as if you are not reading this Jane, but I just felt like saying that.
    Your blog is a happy thing, and I love looking at it, many many others do too, so bring on some more fabulous outfit photo shoots. :)

    I really appreciate your blog. Great finds and nice to see you pay attention to danish designers like Grundahl ;)
    As for global economy and terrorism; yes, these things are horrible (no doubt about it), but if she is in a position to spend $700 on a skirt and chooses to do so because of her love for fashion, then more power to her. She is lucky. Should she “suffer” or deny herself things that she can afford because someone else is worse off?
    And, Erin, you mention terrorism – what on earth are people supposed to do? Put their lifes on hold until every single bad guy in the world is caught and brought to justice, live in fear and sit on their money? Isn’t that exactly what “they” want?
    How do you know, that Jane/her family isn’t devoted to a specific cause, helping out those who are less fortunate than themselves? You call her appalling, but what are your presumptions and need to pass judgement on her – nice, beneficial, fantastic? Not so much.
