Her Style | My Style : How to dress like Alexa Chung on a budget 

Whenever I find myself in a fashion funk I tend to draw inspiration from magazines, celebs and the internet. One of my go to sources is the wardrobe of beautiful British it-girl Alexa Chung. Her effortless style revolves around her love of true vintage and vintage inspired pieces, denim, leather, floral and quirk. Requiring not a lot of dollars, I’ve put together five looks worthy of Miss Chung – remember you don’t need her budget to look effortlessly cool. THE NECK TIE By adding a feature “bow tie” to your blouse or shirt, you can bring your outfit up a notch and create a more chic, on trend look. Alexa has been spotted on more than one occasion rocking a “bow” string tie, and I honestly feel it gives off a certain kind of sexy yet intelligent vibe!

Perth people check out Tuck Shop Cafe on Newcastle Street in Northbridge – yummy food and really good service! Anywho thought i’d get onto Part 2 of my style icons posts before I have to get ready for work this evening. Whitney Port Of all the chicks from ‘The Hills’ Whitney was always my favourite – for one she was actually a nice person (or so it seemed) and she was never ridiculously dramatic or bitchy like the rest of them. And she knows how to dress. I love that her style is carefree and feminine and she’s not afraid to try something different or go that extra step with accessories or bold lips.
