I don't know much about Alexa Chung. She caught my eye a while back in some magazine because I very much identify with the gangly, flat-chested types and love to examine what they are wearing to see if it is a style I can adopt for my own wardrobe. Her style is adorable; a sort of an 80's-romantic-Oliver Twist amalgamation of brogues and shorts and layers. Not really my style scene, but she got a bookmark in my brain and life carried on.
The image that introduced me to Chung. She was DJing at an event in a Burberry sequin dress + chunky sweater topper-- thus began my love of sparkly things (this even made it onto my inspiration wall!)
Now she has popped back up on my radar for more than a snippet/photo-op in Vogue. I read an article on NYTimes.com that described how she and a style.com higher up will be hosting the show "Thrift America" on PBS. Shopping for vintage treasures with a gal who is kind-of cool despite no one knowing what she actually does actually sounds pretty appealing, so I will be sure to tune in (and way to go PBS for branching out beyond Charlie Rose- that man scares me).
The show doesn't debut until this summer, so in the meanwhile I will plan to do a little vintage shopping of my own (advice anyone?) and google-image-stalk Alexa to see what this gal is all about. Results of my stalking? So glad you asked:
Normally I credit my photos, but my sources didn't list sources, so here's to theft!
Are you a fan? Or just as mystified as much of America as to what her sitch (situation) is?
