Sea of Shoes Teams Up With ShoeMint for a Pair of Color-Blocked Ankle Boots

Shoe-loving blogger Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes has provided readers with lots of lofty shoe inspiration, but believe it or not, Jane aims to do more than just make us jealous with her insane collection of fashionable footwear. Now, as of this Fall, she’s helping us cure our post-summer shoe slump with a killer pair of color-blocked booties! And what’s more – they’re actually affordable. No joke! ShoeMint co-designers Rachel Bilson and Nicole Chavez have teamed up with the style maven to create the aptly-named Jane bootie – now available on ShoeMint for a mere $109.98. These statement-making nappa leather ankle boots come in both black-and-white and black-and-tan, and look great with cropped skinny jeans (Aldridge’s own preferred pairing) or even with a tights-and-shorts combo for fall. Sure, they may not cure your withdrawals for summer sandal weather, but they do provide another reason to look forward to the chillier boot season ahead!

Recommended Reading: Girls of a Certain Age and Sea of Shoes vs. Texas Monthly and The Cut

Confession: I’m one of those girls who loved, loved, loved the magazine Sassy. I have nearly every issue saved (they’re at my parents’ house), and I devoured the excellent How Sassy Changed my Life. What was so great to me was that the magazine let its editors’ and writers’ personalities into the magazine, so much that I felt like they were actually my friends, or at least cool girls I could look up to. One of those editors was Kim France, who went on to editLucky, taking a similar tactic in bringing its editors onto its pages. Kim is no longer the editor at Lucky, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss her, so I was beyond overjoyed to see she started a blog called Girls of a Certain Age. It is very clearly her voice—cool, a little neurotic, honest—and while many of the posts are about shopping (everything from store reports to cool products), she also interviewed fellow Sassy alum Christina Kelly, and hopefully will continue that practice (where are Mary and Karen?!). The blog is geared toward women in their 30s and 40s, so obviously I’m the target audience, but I can’t help but feel like I’ve reconnected with a long-lost friend.

Elsewhere on the blogosphere, Sea of Shoes and The Cut are engaged in a war of words over this profile of SOS’s Jane Aldridge inTexas Monthly. Jane apparently had no problem with the article until this post on The Cut, snarkily analyzing the profile. Jane issued a rebuttal; The Cutresponded. My take? The TM story is a pretty damn good profile—it’s an award-winning publication, after all—and while Jane comes across as a bit…snobby…you can’t help but admire her for knowing what she wants and going after it—successfully—at such a young age (she’s 20), so who cares if she’s not going to college? (Nor do I care that she drinks a glass of champagne in the story; I did far worse things at that age.) Jane is now claiming a bunch of quotes were taken out of context by The Cut, and that she was misquoted by TMTexas Monthly stands by their reporting. Jane may be savvy beyond her years when it comes to her blog, but she’s certainly showing her age when it comes to her lack of media training.
