Cocktails With... Jane Aldridge from Sea of Shoes

We caught up with internationally famous style blogger Jane Aldridge, who started her Sea of Shoes blog as a 15-year-old, to ask about 7 For All Mankind's new fall collaboration and where she kicks up her moto boots when she's not blogging.

You're an accessory goddess and have serious shoe designing experience. Worst shoe trend of all time?
Platforms have definitely been overdone. I love a good throwback to disco but too many platform shoes are done badly!

Do redheads have more fun? 
Being a redhead makes any guy in a bar think he can use a cheesy line on you. I'm not so sure about that!

Any advice to fellow redhead Lohan?
Maybe stay in for a quiet evening with a TV show and bar the door shut. Make that a year actually.

If you could walk a mile in any designer's shoes, whose would they be? 
I would have liked to have seen what a day in the life of Ghesquiere was like at Balenciaga!

Where do you get the inspiration for the local locations of your shoots? 
We love urban settings for the movement of the city! My mom loves to shoot motion photography, a crosswalk is her favorite.

Who are you listening to right now?
I'm working on recording a mix I played this weekend. It has some Grace Jones, Supermax, and Adrian Gurvitz on it!

 
French textile maker Mahlia Kent has made a line of denim for 7. Your fave? I absolutely love the Egyptian woven skinnies (pictured). I have a magpie eye for anything shiny and gold. It is so luxe.
