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 :)
xo Jane

    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”.

    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.

    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…;-))

    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!

    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.

    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?
