Whether you love or hate Sea of Shoes, it's undeniable that Jane Aldridge wears the other half of Tavi's teenage blogger crown. In this month's Teen Vogue, Jane Keltner breaks news regarding the next steps of the Aldridge empire. Mother and daughter teamed up with Gryphon designer (and former Vogue-ette) Aimee Cho to design a one off coat. The khaki trench features brass buttons, bell sleeves and a caramel colored leather pouch around the waist. Their big news, however, lands at the end of the story when Jane [Keltner] mentions their book deal officially landing the other Jane [Aldrige] at the top of the blogger pile with Scott Schuman and Todd Selby. UPDATE: Jane's mom, Judy Aldridge and the blogger behind Atlantis Home, tweeted us to say Teen Vogue's mistaken and there is no book deal after all. UPDATE II: There is in fact a book. A style book. This is our final update. Promise.
Teen Vogue Invites Bloggers to WWDMagic, Launches a Personal Style Blog Network
Fashion industry trade shows can often be an overwhelming and tedious experience for attendees who must navigate through a thousand plus booths of designers, hawking their latest creations. This year, WWDMagic, the Las Vegas-based show, has partnered with Teen Vogue to bring the event to a much, much bigger audience. They've invited 30 bloggers--including Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes and Erica Domesek of P.S. I Made This along with a slew of up-and-comers--to participate in panels, trend reporting, video segments, and competitions as part of a Blogger Concourse Lounge during the three day show (February, 14 – 16, 2011). Teen Vogue will also use the lounge to promote the launch of their personal style blogger network Fashion Click. (Lucky, by the way, is also launching its own blog network.) Much like Tumblr's own coverage of NYFW, coverage of the bloggers' trip will be aggregated to one page: Wwdmagic.tumblr.com.
