Alexa Chung

My current style icon,
Brit grunge girl Alexa Chung.


Style File ; she mixes vintage with the designer, dresses down 'pretty' by adding her own dose of grunge/rock chick quality. Oozes effortless glam; and looks PRETTY DARN GOOD while doing it.
(oh how i love her styyyyyyle!)

She's the main cause for my inspiration nowadays; I'm going for a darker,
not-made-to-cater look, learning to use my amazing opshop finds with the other
stuff I've got in my wardrobe.
Yeah. just bought a well-fitting long black blazer,
and it shall serve me well.
I'll probs wear it till it has moth holes in it or smth :D

and oh, back to reality.
Its Arts and Cultural Dinner tomorrow night,
(YUSS! a chance to dress up and buy new things!)
and I've just spent the last half an hour sewing
purple fabric roses onto the dress that I'm wearing.
Yes, Scott. Its THE DRESS you said that I was
'picking myself' in during New Years.. lol remember?
(Its not my fault that the dress was too big! lol. still is, actually.)
And got the AWESOMEST Gladiator heels to go with it.
:D took me very long to come across those shoes,
(you should've seen me weep on Saturday when the
satin platform pumps a la Yves Saint Laurent
were all sold out across Auckland. )
But i am EXTREMELY happy with them :]
They're sorta like the Louboutin booties that Lily
from BleedForFashion wears.
(Yes those very ones that Ive spent many a time
drooling over.)

and yeah.
will post up pictures of the aforementioned
shoes soon.
Be on the look out for Shoe Porn! ;]
