VIDEO: Sea of Shoes Blogger Jane Aldridge on WFAA

WFAA’s News 8 Daybreak” sat down with 20 year-old “Sea of Shoes” blogger Jane Aldridge and TEXAS MONTHLY contributor Jason Sheeler, who profiles her in the April issue, this morning.

In addition to discussing Aldridge’s preference for living in Dallas and the fact that she can’t watch awards-show coverage (“I don’t have a TV…”) they have a laugh over Sheeler’s description of her having a “mean-girl tone.”
