la petite fashionista says

Yes, but the story continues, apparently michelle? brought into question KW’s manhood while he was surfin [he’s in studio in HI] the fashion blogs today, and he straightened that issue right up, and not only that but he reiterates that even though she’s got a pretty cool blog, it’s not as cool [and here he says] ‘tdctlihs’. Jane West, same name as if you’d married Batman? hmmm, i wonder where KW’s surfin’ tonight?
That’s so sick. I follow your blog on a daily, and I love it, Jane! :D
wow that’s so cool!
Woah!!! congratulations!! Amazing xx
Wow thats aweseom! Congrats!

J. Rene' says
holy shit balls! that is cool. the power of blogging to bring people together–wonder who else is looking?!?!
so, i had a dream last night that we were new friends. we had our first girly sleepover and i tried on lots of your shoes. none of my friends have the same size as me and it was nice to share that trait, especially with you, ms. sea of shoes.
is it creepy i’m sharing this? … probably. i’m not even a hxc follower, but a friend showed me your blog a month or so ago. i think i’m hooked now.
I’m so happy for you! Congratulations!!!
Jane, you are an internet phenom! I remember hearing about you from a friend of mine a few months back and immediately fell in love with your site. Since then I’ve told, and been told about you (course, I already knew) another countless number of times! I’m sure plenty of other famous people are reading this here blog o’ yours. It’s really fantastic.
And definitely… SO JEALOUS OF YOUR SHOE COLLECTION. SIGH.
That must have been really strange doing a daily routine of checking your e-mail and realizing you just got a note from Kanye West. More power to you! haha
Little Clementine says
Hahaha, wow! That’s so cool :)
that’s amazing jane! (:
two of my favorite things: your blog & kanye west
And how cool that he took the time to take a picture of himself for you. Maybe now your secret celebrity fans will start coming out of the woodwork.
Congrats Jane ! your blog it’s sooo amazing, you deserves all this sucess !
(sorry about the bad inglish, I’am brazilian).

E. Riley Page says
good job, jane!
FRED EGAN says
That’s pretty insane.
WOW!!!! Way to go Jane!
that is so sick that kanye knows who you are!!
ps. i love your blog, i look at your page every day!
vintage Tea says
wow, you must be so pleased!
wow congrats that’s EPIC
lol also did you see the person in the comments that ACTUALLY thinks you’re karl lagerfeld’s daughter?
woah! woah! woah! congrats! you deserve it…you have fantastic style.
E. David Goltl says
Congratulations girl. That is awesome. I just hit Kanyes blog (a little late) and about fell out of my chair! Knowing his style, and yours, it was only a matter of time before you two connected.
oh youre so badass this is disgusting. like disgusting meaning wicked cool fabulous fantastic amazing, etc. etc. etc.
just too cool
Lola B. says
Wondering why anyone would be jealous….he peeped the blog for the same reason all of us do…cause she’s dope, and stylish, and young with a mean shoe game!!
This is amazing! You are very stylish and your blog is an inspiration.. I can’t believe you are so young and from such a small town. I’m actually from Pilot Point Texas, just north of Dallas, and I think they would fall over and die if they saw someone dressed as cool/sylish as you! Keep it up… I think you’re going to go very far in the fashion world. Can’t believe Kanye commented on you..so sick!!
he’s great, you’re great ! congrats from poland
is Karl Lagerfeld really your father? btw, love your blog! =))
def congrats! love his pic lol
kanye should fix his website so people aren’t spamming their blog addresses, that is shameful imo!
That’s so crazy! I’m not a big fan of Kanye, but it’s always great to get exposure from someone of his fame level.
Saw this pic today and thought I’d seen those sweeties somewhere before.. :) http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3594/3351708031_254fe0167c_o.jpg
Love your taste in shoes.. If you ever decide to get rid of those branch heels….. contact me lol ;) xox from Croatia!
wow, that’s amazing!
Christina Chan says
Though this is an impressive blog, we cannot escape the facts. She is extremely privileged not only financially, but in the level of intimate fashion exposure that most girls her age and NOT of her financial disposition, she has received. Her mother was a former model that lived aboard for an extensive portion of her life in addition to providing for her children to the ability to live free of the usual constraints that afflict the masses. More and more I am beginning to feel that fashion & art, are privileges of those of have versus those who have not. I would be entirely more moved by this blog, if she were middle – class or even poor and scrapping a bit for her clothes and shoes, let alone, making them herself. This isn’t to completely bash her efforts, as she’s exercised considerable dedication to her blogs but let us not forget the reality here: she’s a wealthy 17 year old girl in Texas, with a former model for a mother and an unlimited wealth of resources at her fingertips. This is not common and her popularity is directly linked to “our” i.e. the “have nots” and the “masses alike” with the lives of those who possess the material things and opportunities we wished we had. It is really our envy, shrouded in “appreciation” that allows this girl to have reached the heights that she has, and will continue, as long as we worship material idols instead of going out, into the world, and inspiring not just ourselves but others. – CC
You’re so lucky, Jane! I hope one day my blog gets as popular as yours! Haha, I can dream, right?!
Of course he would dig your style :)
WOOOWWW that’s a big compliment if the stars are watching your blog. And your blog is pretty interesting if a man is on a site for womenshoes.:P Best compliment ever, but afterall it is a good blog.
Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhh, right!!!!?!!! That’s quiet an accomplisment!!! Congrats!!!
Keep it up!!
We’re all admittedly a little jealous! But also very proud of you at the same time!!
Ash Fox says
wow! i had no idea you are only 16. that is such an honor from Kanye. who knew he read blogs?
It would be even better if the people who followed his blog weren’t complete idiots. I believe your dad would refer to them as “demode”.
Just rocked it/him out ;)
You’re on fire girl, congrats!
Kanye West has very good taste.
congratulations JANE! You deserve things like this! I can only imagine what you’ll do once you’re out in the real world! You’re gonna rock this bitch! ;)

Have fun in Paris for the “debut”….hell you are wearing Chanel…you’ve won already!
