Who: Alexa Chung (WHO ELSE?!)
Where: Paris Fashion Week Haute-Couture Fall/Winter 2013-2014 for Chanel
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!
It used to take me over six months to go back to a blog that I haven’t visited in a while. With my new routine and schedule and the absence of homework, I am able to get through my blogs a lot quicker which frees up more time for me to be creative and to spend more time on posts that mean a lot to me instead of just posting and being done with it. Most of the photographs in this A Collection post came from one blog and go figure it’s called Thriving Twenties so of course we can relate hence why we love it.
Today, my all-time favorite style icon is celebrating her birthday! To this day, I am still missing her MTV talk show… but I know it’s only a matter of time before she is back on the air again and in the forefront. Check out all of my favorite looks by Alexa here.
