So perhaps this is the reason I have NEVER heard of the über-popular blog Sea of Shoes until tonight.
I found the site intriguing, much like a 5-car pileup on the LIE. You want to not look, but you can’t. Here is a 17-year-old girl — a thin, attractive one at that — flaunting her wealth and entitlement through a blog that consists mostly of pictures of herself flashing her latest luxury purchases.
And what about the mom, who obviously supports these spending sprees? And has her own blog to showcase her own fabulous lifestyle?
A bit of web sleuthing revealed that Jane, through her blog, has become a fashion darling and featured in numerous industry rags in the likes of Vogue. She has even launched her own line of shoes through Urban Outfitters. And even though it is apparent that she does not bat an eye spending $1,000+ on shoes, she probably receives tons of free or heavily discounted swag from companies vying for their products to be paraded on her blog.
Maybe I’m just bitter because I’ve heard too many sob stories due to the current economic climate. Maybe it’s just my own green eyed monster rearing its ugly head. Maybe her blog reveals only a small part of her life; for all I know she could be volunteering at homeless shelters every day of the week.
And heck, who am I to judge? I’m all for posting whatever the hell you want on your own blog.
So, based on what’s written in the last sentence, here is what I have to say on my own blog about Sea of Shoes:
Do you read Sea of Shoes? How do YOU feel about it?
