Rumour has it that Chanel will hand pick a blogger or more to join its team of roving ‘glambassadors’ (yep, we just made that word up) alongside Jen Brill, Poppy Delevigne, Vanessa Traina, Leigh Lezark, and Caroline Sieber. The extra special wicked idea this time is to pick someone from the world of existing fashion bloggers to get all type-happy on behalf of the French uberbrand.
So far, favourites are Fashion Toast's Rumi Neely and Sea of Shoes's Jane Aldridge, possibly because they are both pretty beyoooodiful, and photogenic and probably too because they are quite sweet natured and enthusiastic, rather than being over critical in their online musings.
Lets have a look at Jane Aldridge – a young Texan with luscious blonde/strawberry locks and a face the shape of a loveheart. Her favourite brands include Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester for shoes, and plenty of vintage treasures. She is heavily influenced by her stylish mom, Judy.
She explained to Refinery 29 ‘At some point my mom went up in the attic and dragged down a box of vintage Yohji Yamamoto, Ghost, Comme des Garçons, and Dries van Noten. The box was labeled “For Jane” and was filled with the clothes she wore in the eighties while living in
Meanwhile Rumi Neely, the other mooted candidate, is similar to Jane in that she started blogging pretty early, is extremely photogenic and has also made posing wistfully in her latest purchases and self-styled experiments on her blog, Fashion Toast, her USP. We think it is a very interesting idea, and are more than a teeny tad jeals if this is true. If you are reading this, Unkle Karl and you have any special assignments in mind, we’re more than happy to dress up in some demure pumps and pearls and go and carry them out for you . . . . !
