Have you met Miss Chung?

Apart from the current cast of Doctor Who, Alexa Chung is my favourite celebrity and also the only celebrity to have an influence on my style- unless you count fashion bloggers like Tavi Gevinson of Style Rookie and also Tuula Sykes on occasion. There's something a little more attractive and infectious about Alexa Chung's style though, after scouring on Etsy for a few hours last night I found some pieces similar to what she wears as well as a smorgasbord of other goodies I can't wait to get my hands on. From that treasure trove includes a beaded bracelet featuring white skulls, similar to the pendant seen on Ms. Chung above and also vintage Peter Pan collar blouses for less than $30. Yay!

She's an intriguing individual and absolutely one-of-a-kind and that's probably what I love about her most. No one else in the modelling world has a face like hers and the decision to cut her hair short as well as having half of it dyed blond at one point of her life has individualised her and really set her apart from the rest. Where one model may be employed to portray a character and promote a product, Alexa Chung models to show off the beauty of Alexa Chung.

Fortunately when she's not modelling, Chung also works as a television presenter for 'It's On with Alexa Chung' as well as a DJ. She is certainly model material though, look at those teeny tiny legs in those leather pants! Her face doesn't give the appearance of being very skinny since there's a sort of warmth and kindness about it but there is no way possible that being that skinny is healthy. Still, I love the combination of shoes and pants. It's a shame I can't read the foreign language of the magazine and the picture quality isn't up to the task.

I have previously heard the debacle that pink and red shouldn't be worn together but in some sort of romantic coloured miracle Alexa proves all the critics wrong by wearing chic plastic framed sunglasses and a dress with capped sleeves and red bows. After dropping a few hints to my boyfriend about the date, I'm looking forward to Valentine's Day and wearing my 'Stolen Girlfriends Club' bow ring in silver as well as my 'This is Make Believe' rose necklace in red resin. Maybe on the date in question I'll wear a pink blouse with my red necklace and see how well I can pull off the look as well! There may also be a pink YSL ring coming soon but that is not yet confirmed so we'll all just have to wait and see.

There's a wealth of duffel coats with toggles in all colours and patterns available at my very fingertips and I've also found a way around huge and horrendous vintage up sale prices. Now the only thing left is wait for the weather to turn cold and I too can happily sport a coat and maybe even flirty bare legs covered in sheer tights in Autumn and Winter.

Only a hot-blooded, pure-breed, ferocious model could pull off something so ridiculous as licking a Chanel handbag and still look like a smouldering goddess. She puts me to shame terribly so, but if I look unattractive and unappealing next to anyone I will happily agree to it being Alexa Chung. Only she can channel vintage school boy charm as well as duffel coats, Peter Pan collars and chic basics with Charlotte Olympia kitty flats and a host of other wonderful things.
