and all the hate will turn to love

(knightcat via TFS)
When Alexa Chung first sauntered onto the scene I thought she was the bees knees. But upon closer inspection, I started to think she was a little too artfully disheveled and a mite inconsistent. But darned if she isn't near-perfect in this picture. Not too constructed, not too haphazard; the goldilocks of looks!

If I went to Paris I could probably just send a postcard home of this girl and everyone would know where I went. Wouldn't even need the Eiffel tower in the background. Just one achingly cool and nonchalant girl with an effortless scarf and unexpected purse.*

* as in, not a buttery black leather slouch purse nestled in the crook of her arm. I mean, those I love, but there's something so sharp about the shape (a little too big) and colour of her purse.

Alexa Chung is great. She mixes vintage, high street, and luxe with enviable ability. So unfair. She makes me believe that you just gotta be born with it.

I think parisian style sums up Paris best too, hey who needs the Eiffel tower, right? :P

I love street style. People never cease to amaze me.
