    Dear Jane,
    I absolutely adore the cupboard/shelf (in the 11th picture) with your favourite plastic toys. I love the rough, scratched wood and the peeling paint. :D I must myself somewhat guiltily admit that I love to hunt for little treasures in garbage piles that people put in front of their houses. I’ve found soooo many lovely little things. I love the whole hunting process. It must be the whole prehistoric urge, you know what I mean? ;p But as they say, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. Well anyways, I love the shelf/cupboard thing(Goodness, I have no idea what you call that thing. I know there’s a word for it!). I would love to hear its story and you know… the whole discovery process. :P
    Yours truly,

    Did we spot some shoes there you haven’t worn on the blog yet, someone mentioned above, when you and Judy did the shoe challenge, that would be great to do again – selfishly just so we get to see more shoes!

    I’ve been a fan of the blog for quite some time now; I think you are unbelievably creative and exploratory in your style choices. I’m sure every reader of yours would kill for a wardrobe that could even be a fraction of yours.
    You’re obviously well-off enough to afford these fabulous things, whereas most bloggers are forced to rely on their own thrift and dress-making savvy. I know you have no control into what you were born into and what your natural financial environment is, but, looking at that huge, and certainly invidious, shoe wall, my question is: don’t you ever think of it as excess? I mean, we all have our thralls, things we collect and treasure, but it sometimes seems to me like too much for one person.
    I honestly don’t mean to offend you, but thinking about the current economic climate has me questioning how necessary it is to spend so much money on objects, and then to post this–I don’t want to say glut, but it definitely seems like an overindulgence–on the internet, where other fashion-conscious teens will see it, envy it, want it, and think that’s what money should be spent on.
    I really do hugely admire your style and your interesting and intelligent take on fashion (not to mention–your other blog is just about one of my favorite things on the internet), but it’s just a question I can’t help but ask.

    Your post is really thoughtful and it reflects the conflicting feelings I have in reading blogs like this one. I’m all for the democratization of fashion but it seems that a number of popular blogs are written by very affluent people (or those willing to spend a ton of money) and feature looks that largely comprise designer labels. For all the touting of mixing high- and low-end pieces, I don’t see that being executed very much in this or other blogs. I hardly think adding a Forever 21 top offsets the cost of $1,000 shoes and a $1,500 dress. The price of the total outfit is still very expensive even after factoring in a budget item. Jane indeed has an amazing and inspirational personal style, but I wonder if she can pull off an avant-garde look on the average teenager’s budget.
    You also ask a question worth asking: how much is enough? Is shopping every day (or nearly every day) a good thing? We as Americans buy so much stuff—more than anyone really needs if we’re honest. Times like these should force us to reevaluate our tendency to consume, consume, consume especially since a lot of people are losing their livelihoods.

    My thoughts exactly. It’s frivolous spending that got so many people in financial trouble in the first place. Obviously, I have no way of knowing what Jane’s budget it, but she clearly has room in it to afford all she has. She has enough to go shopping often, and not to deliberate over the value of her purchases too often. The problem with this is that posting these purchases and shopping excursions, and this perhaps unintentional but blatant show of consumerism, isn’t the most accurate yardstick against which to measure the economy. Many of the readers of this blog, which I’m guessing are girls in high school or about to leave high school, are getting ready to become financially independent and to step out under the umbrella of their parents. Jane, who can spend money easily and without worry, might not be the best influence for other girls who are preparing to make their own expenditures and to be responsible for their own incomes, maybe forgoing more sensible things for a pair of shoes that you wouldn’t be able to walk to your next class in.
    Self-expression is undeniably important, especially to growing girls, and Jane does it undeniably well. But it’s easy to have good style if you can afford beautiful things that are amazingly crafted, that have great care taken into making unique details, and that are ultimatley exclusive to a certain rung of the social ladder. Can she do it on an average high school girl’s budget? Can she do it without resorting to the typical Vogue method-which I find to be elitist and condescending-of including an American Apparel t-shirt under a four-figure Comme des Garcons jacket and a similarly priced skirt or pair of pants…and without her signature exorbitantly priced pair of pumps?
    I’d think I’d be able to respect someone who already seems like an intelligent, gracious, and original girl even more than I already do.

    Furthermore, how are Anonymous and me “haters” (I absolutely loathe this word)? We haven’t made any rude or derogatory comments about Jane. We both admire this blog but at the same time find it troubling, hence our conflicting feelings. Also troubling is that some people feel the need to attack others who speak their minds and don’t resort to name calling or insults.
    Blogs are supposed to be alternatives to boring mags like Vogue, truer to how people actually dress and in accordance with real life budgets, yet a number of them (including this one) are increasingly straying from this. If I want pure escapism, I’ll flip through some international edition of Vogue at a bookstore.
    Personally, I’m more impressed when a blogger incorporates just one or two new pieces into her existing wardrobe and is creative enough to compose a bunch of new outfits rather than buying new items nearly every day. Camille from Childhood Flames does this extremely well. I love that she scrimps and saves to buy a pair of Dries shoes with babysitting money—you share her excitement at finally being able to make the purchase, you know she’ll love them and get so much use out of them.
    If such thinking makes me a “hater,” so be it.

    Why do we always have to have someone preaching the credit crunch gospel? Would you really enjoy Vogue if it only featured highstreet? I certainly wouldn’t! I think most women are intelligent enough to know the difference between what they can and cannot afford. I personally enjoy Janes blog as I like to see how she interprets her designer pieces, which she obviously acknowledges how lucky she is to have. I have never heard anyone sing the praises so much of each designer and subsequent piece she shows in her posts.
    Oh and about the economy, it would totally collapse if people stopped spending in their entirety!

    Dear Jane,
    Your shoes are incredible.
    I’ve been pondering the question as to why people love you so much as we all do. Is it because you wear things we would never dare to wear? Is it because we wish we were you? That we had your sense of style? I can’t figure it out. Does internet popularity translate to real world popularity? Obviously among the fashion world, but I want to know about the real people.

    Really don’t want to come off like I’m hating b/c I really do enjoy this blog… it’s just that I bet your laughing right now b/c your outfits are so simple (like even though your backpack’s Balenciaga you might of as well paid a 10th of the price for a real leather non-designer one since it’s that basic).
    Glad to see your doing so well even though I know and you obviously know too that if 8 out of 10 people walked past you on a street they wouldn’t look twice b/c you’re literally wearing a tank and black jeans -thank god for those daring shoes. You get 200+ comments for wearing a pair of shorts and a white top so you must be doing something right when it comes to this blog… so I can’t and won’t attempt to knock you.

If you have any tips on how to really get my blog going I would be unbelievably appreciative.

    See, Caroline and Anon (who BS claims to be sucking each others’ dick) are thoughtfully dissecting this blog, while Name Name and Mindy are just plain hating.
    Don’t let the fact that most of her items cost thousands of dollars undermine Jane’s sense of style, there are people (well, C-list celebs and minor heiresses) with budgets roughly equal to Jane’s who have never displayed the same amount of taste and talent when it comes to fashion.
    At the same time, the whole thing IS extravagant and there ARE more important and/or more altruistic things that can use that kind of money. I’m not “fronting about world poverty and shit” (as Gabrielle put it), I genuinely think it is a part of being a reasonable human with empathy and all to share, at least a little, when you have more than most, much much more than those who struggle to even survive. On the other hand, knowing how much people just love to attack other without any thought, they’d still accuse Jane of doing it only for show if she posted her more charitable efforts.
    In the end it is her money and, therefore, her decision and I bet posting nasty comments anonymously won’t change her mind. And really, she’s not blogging to be a Role Model of Financial Responsibility for Fashion-conscious Young Women or whatever.
    And to those who said blog readers can separate fantasy from reality — are you sure? You know there’s a lot of women that get into massive debts because they unthinkingly buy things they can never afford. But again, it’s their own responsibility and trying to shut down blogs/fashion magazines for “promoting irrational fashion spending” is as ridiculous as it sounds.
    (By the way, what’s up with getting labeled a hater when you’re not posting gushing praises that noone reads anyway?)

Your outfits always have the contrast to acheive some twisted yet perfect balance. Like some of your other readers, I would love if you would photograph all the contents of your shoewall and tag each pair. (i.e. brand and style) I’d almost like a catalogue style of all your shoes. Thank you for sharing your creativity and fabulous wardrobe with a world that merely dreams of such luxury. Now we don’t have to dream, we can just read Sea of Shoes (:

  164. “creative and daring”, i agree with one of the posters here (BiadaBella).
    1. open, white shoe wall: i believe this is THE best way to store shoes (unless your climate is dusty like mine!) having one’s wardrobe displayed in this manner is one of the keys to putting together an outfit.
    2. the plastic dinosaurs are fun. these pics, and the little stuffed octopus, made me smile. i used to collect ceramic animals when i was your age…still have the collection stored somewhere…
    3. the assad necklace is gorgeous, i LOVE it!
    4. whiting & davis snake: that’s a fun label, so retro and almost old-lady-ish, in a good way.

I wish I had your budget, I mean I can afford one or two Loubs or Sergios myself here and there, but nothing compared to you:) Other than that, I see your pictures with Fowles and Nabokov and the dogs and your travels and I really appreciate that you are not one of those ignorant types who are only interested in fashion and nothing more. Really, it’s not everyday that we have a 17 year old fashion blogger posing with The Magus. Keep it up Jane:)

I won’t react to the bizarre and strange comments that have appeared elsewhere about BIFA (some people should get out more!), but I will say that anyone interested in our group of supporters should get in touch.
