Lazaro Hernandez, Anna Wintour, and Jack McCollough
I can’t believe it’s time already for the most fashionable night of the year! It’s crazy to think that a year has already gone by. I feel like I was making the 2013 post just last month. This year’s theme is White Tie and Decorations.
Of course we’re kicking things off with Queen Bey and Jay.

Favorite Style Icon: Alexa Chung
This should really come as no surprise. Since Alexa Chung came into my life, I have always been a fan of her outfit choices. I noticed last year, I selected Taylor Swift, but really – Alexa blew her and everyone else out of the water in 2013. With her new book that we are dying to read and collections of hers popping up all over the place, we are looking forward to what she’ll be bringing to the table in 2014.

We usually never do this, but for Alexa Chung, it’s a MUST.
Alexa celebrated her 30th birthday yesterday and continues to pave the way as an inspiring style icon for girls everywhere. We’re so excited for everything that is to come for her and especially her new book.
Happy Birthday A!
Alexa Chung has been my style icon for a very long time. I’ve never not been impressed with her editorials and when I am reminded of Alexa Chung, I imagine a classic and timeless look. She is by no means, an individual, that can pull off anything, but she certainly knows herself well enough to always be well-dressed for every event.
I love seeing the difference in A Collection posts between seasons. With summer, there is so much light in these photos, the idea that we have the capacity to do anything, and some weight lifted off our shoulders. I have so much hope for the rest of 2013 and my hope is that it will be better! I hope you all have a lovely weekend and that these photos can do their best to inspire beauty and life into you!
Alexa Chung released a photograph of her new cover and book title today called “It.” Well, it makes sense doesn’t it? She is the HBIC It Girl. So what exactly will we find in this new read? Don’t expect it to be a tell-all or even a memoir. Instead, the book will hold her inspirations such as photographs and drawings. Alexa is quite the style icon so we have no doubts at all that this won’t be a best seller and that young fan girls all over the world won’t be standing in line waiting to purchase it.
Without even noticing, every “A Collection” post has some sort of a theme. I always enjoy going back and looking at the different sets asking myself what the common theme was. What was I feeling that day? Why did I select this photo, that photo, and this series of photos? I started writing this about a fourth into completing this post and I noticed that all of the photographs are pretty simplistic, but also muted. There are times when I won’t remember why there is a theme, but I think this completely embodies how I’m feeling right now. Somewhat muted, but it’s a refreshing time right now because there is so much that is unknown. Also – Seattle has the hottest weather in all of the country right now, which is incredible and NEVER happens. Funny, because you would think that these photos would be much brighter to resemble that, but they are not. Surprise!
