The New Kate Moss and she likes Vintage

In last Friday's The New York Times Fashion and Style section was the article The Making of Fashion's Latest 'It' Girl  and it was all about Alexa Chung, my new style muse. I was so excited to find out that she is currently filming 'Thrift America,' a new television series airing this summer on PBS. It will be about my absolute favorite past time...'shopping for vintage clothes and other paraphernalia.' I seriously can't wait for it to air, maybe she's heard of Fresh Quince's What to Wear Wednesday segment and maybe she will contact me to help her in DC...hahaha..only in my dreams! 

Following are some seriously chic Alexa Chung photo's: 

I think Kate Moss is telling Alexa that she will be the next 'it' girl.

Ask the girls at Current Boutique, my go-to consignment store, and they will tell you I am mad for stripes right now!

Alexa looking divine in more stripes!

I am also going crazy for red, black and white!

Love her hair!

So gorgeous!!!

Totally hip!

Awesome vintage sofa she is on...I see these sofa's on Craigslist all of the time! 

The New York Times article states "MS. CHUNG’S style might be described as tomboy-meets-Lolita (delicate mini-dresses and brogues)" and I would have to agree. She pairs vintage items with new hip clothes so effortlessly. You all have to read the article and I am sure you will fall in love with her like I have. She is a breath of fresh air in a sea of overtly sexy and sometimes style-less celebrities!

  2. Though I don't love everything she does, I DO love that she takes risks, that she wears vintage (and pairs it with new), and that she doesn't look like everyone else, and I can't WAIT to see the new show on PBS. Hadn't heard of it before now, so thank you for letting us know!

    Merci,

    So, why not ring them up and offer your services? You certainly know where to go for vintage in D.C.!
