Comments For Jane 1/7/10

Sea of   Shoes continues her reign of terror by designing a coat for Gryphon, a perfectly nice fashion line until now. Without ever meeting in person, Sea was able to transmit her design for the hideous coat she is modeling in this photo. Note the awkward bell sleeves and icky attached pouch.   If that’s not enough for you, Sea and Mom have SIGNED A BOOK DEAL!   Isn’t that fabulous?!?

Sea won’t publish your comments, you stupid peons, but you can leave them here.   I’ll go first.

Wow, awful coat, way to go! OMG, I heard about your book deal and asked myself, Where’s my book deal??   I wish I had an angle, like millions of shoes or a weird thing with my mom! Love, SW

    At the very least I could conceal major weaponry in those sleeves.

  2. hammie says:

    And an extra pain chocolat at the in-store bakery in superquinn. Buy one get one free (in your sleeve) xx

  3. Susan says:

    Sort of medieval meets military s&m on the way to school. What a feat to come up with something so curiously tasteless.

  4. Dru says:

    Shoot me, but I actually like the bell sleeves- even if they’d get filthy if you happened to be eating with your coat on (imagine sleeve ends trailing into curries, lasagnas, pho, etc etc). And the pouch is supposedly detachable, so all isn’t lost.
    Aimee Cho actually made this turn out rather nicely, IMO- not like a potential 80s-inspired horror at all. But I’m just imagining the awesomeness of the potential results if she’d chosen to team up with, say, Queen Michelle or Susie.

  5. Dru says:

    ^also, I may be biased because I love kimono sleeves. The Shoes may be Japan-obsessed in a rather amateur way, but I can’t hold it against them.

  6. Jesse says:

    i actually like the coat- like it, don’t love it, mind you- but i’m perpelexed by what a book by Sea of Shoes and Mommy of Shoes would be like….

    “Today, I woke up around 11am, as my breakfast-maid was bringing me a slice of Weight Watchers toast with 1/2 tsp of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter (I worked out yesterday, so I deserve to indulge). After feasting, I changed out of my Dolce & Gabbana cowboy and indian print jammies into a candy apple red floor length Valentino gown, with a vintage woolly mammoth-fur trench coat thrown over the top (borrowed from my mom). Soooo cute! – Jane x”

    Hmm…and what would Mommy’s chapter say….

    Dear Jane,

    You still disgust me beyond words. I hope you get tangled in your ugly bell sleeves, trip over your too big designer shoes, and hit your head so hard that you begin to see the error of your ways. Or maybe just go into a coma.

    With hate,

    A girl who is just past being a teenager, but who was never as shallow and selfish as you.

  8. angela says:

    p.s. has anyone seen her other blog? One of the more recent posts features photos of what appears to be the KKK… and they have bell sleeves too…

  9. I actually like the coat. I’m a sucker for a kimono sleeve.

  10. Jill says:

    I like it too and I love dragging my sleeves thru my food…a little snack for later!

  11. Liz says:

    I can get over the bell sleeves (well, kind of).

    As long as I can rip that little pouch from the side, I am a-ok.

    But is it just me, or is it made out of that fugly wrinkled material that you’re not supposed to iron??? YYEEEGH.

    And, I don’t want to knock Jane’s body type (who knows, that slenderness may be all-natural metabolism), but I’d imagine it looking 3000% better on someone more curvy. But that’s just me.

    I personally hate outfits that try to make shorts fashionable. Shorts, IMO, are for when you’re at camp or doing household chores. AND it’s winter. Siberia would be horrified. Jane, -1.

    Unfortunately she gets a +2 because of that FREAKING GORGEOUS headband she is wearing in the first pic of her latest entry. I am a sucker for ‘Russian peasant’ hair and hair ornaments. I DIE!

    -50, though, since she’s wearing glasses that I assume she doesn’t need. Fail, Jane, major fail. I know that you can’t tell other people what to wear, and I’ll even let people run around in Uggs with jean shorts, but I draw the line at glasses. It’s like people walking around with canes if they don’t have walking problems.

  12. Ann says:

    $875 for that piece of shit coat. A book deal, and finishing high school online while she is photographed in a minimum of 4 different outfits per day. I realize, due to the pitfalls of internet communication, my tone may appear to be laced with jealousy or resentment, but I assure you it is 100% pure, unfiltered disgust.

  13. April says:

    bahaha I love you for ragging on Jane. Kinda sorta totally agree with you on the coat and her millions of shoes and her mom…

    I love that she was like, look how awesome the sleeves are! my mom and i were trying to capture the feel of blah-blah…and the sleeves are easily the worst part of the coat..

  14. theresa says:

    dear jane
    bell sleeves are for kimonos not khaki (or whatever that material is.) and mad max is for queen michelle. leave that to her, please.

    dear SW
    look at all these people you’ve hooked with your blog. I’ve tried to stop reading it and I actually can’t. As soon as you aren’t busy with miserable things, Im sure something will come your way.

    And Im sure the watch will show up somewhere. its probably mixed up in your “hoarded fashion collection,” and when you finally get rid of all that clutter, it’ll sparkle at you from some corner.
    (im one to talk though, being only 20something with a giant hoarded fashion collection that I feel ashamed of daily)

  15. Dru says:

    Liz, I don’t know about Russian peasants, but it’s easy enough to make a Heidi braid of your own if your hair is maybe a little past your collarbones- just make two plaits, and securely pin each of them over the top of your head. It frames pretty much any facial shape beautifully, and you don’t need Princess Leia hair lengths or any fancy hair stuff to achieve it (good kirby grips/bobby pins are a must, though).

  16. Dru says:

    ^theresa- a hoarded fashion collection isn’t anything to be ashamed of if you like what’s in it. I’m 20something myself, and looking forward to having my own disposable income to spend on shit I like.
    I’m sick of being guilt-tripped about my (carefully chosen, well taken care of, frequently worn) clothes and shoes that are in fact a necessity if I am to avoid nudity and death from catching a chill or something, while my guy friends think there’s nothing wrong with buying shitloads of electronics every year that they’ll just chuck when an ‘updated’ version gets on the market.
    I’m not a huge Sea fan, but that has more to do with her high heel fetish and the relentless pageant-contestant-like chirpiness of her blog posts than anything else – Tokyo Bopper is more my speed.

  17. Dear Sea of Shoes, Stick to Shoes.

  18. Herlihy says:

    Oh, please – when she stuck to shoes, she just ripped off other designers and stuck a bow on it. More proof of the old adage “you can’t buy style.”

    However, I do like the pouch. But it’s silly on a trench coat of all things.

  19. Opps she did shoes! I meant stick to blogging about shoes and nothing else.

    Dear Sea of Shoes, someone shouted at me and now I really don’t like you.
    PS that pouch thing Toast did it a few years ago on a belt it was really really nice and Argentinian.

  20. Jill says:

    I have to admit something. I follow Jane on Twitter. She’s even more comical on there. She posts pics regularly too.

  21. Those sleeves just don’t go with the rest of the coat.

  22. Anne says:

    Firstly, I love your blog. Am such a fan!

    As for Jane. I hate everything she represents but it is so bad it’s good! I keep going back for more! I laughed when I saw the coat. It is hidious. The pouch is revolting and the sleeves…SO unflattering. How could one design something so truly terrible? I wouldn’t pay $1 for that let alone whatever exhorbitant price it will sell for. I find it kind of sad as well that they didn’t even meet the designer and did it all via phone. The best thing about collaborating with someone is the creativity and energy you get from sitting across from that person and bouncing ideas and energy off each other.

    I can see why they got the book deal – people always want to know how the rich (and now famous) live. But Plain Jane would be nothing without Old Judes. Old Judes is the powerbroker here IMO. She managed to get a good settlement from Daddy to help fund their lifestyle and she is the driver behind the blog, the marketing, the contacts…at least that is my theory!

  23. Sil says:

    I can feel how nice it would be to wear that expensive thing where I live. The 50 kilometers per hour wind would go through that bell sleeves easily and you could freeze so nicely after paying one and half times my mensual mortgage for that… COME ON.

  24. Dru says:

    Anne- are you from the Vogue Australia forums? I love that place.

  25. Siouxsie Law says:

    Maybe my Goth legal blog would be more successful if I could incorporate some weird Goth thing with my mom. I’m thinking book deal.

  26. Hi–happy to find your blog via Make Do Style! I don’t like the bell sleeves either; it’s a testament to the designers’ iconography that people are in line to buy the jecket . . .
