Velvet Days

top, alexa chung for madewell; leggings, dvf; shoes, jeffrey campbell; wallet, kooba

When I first heard of Alexa Chung’s collaboration with Madewell I was both excited and nervous (for my wallet). Since she has been on the scene I always admired both her hair and style which she has imported from her hometown of England. Her line is made of peter pan collars, heavy yet structured coats, and fall shorts. As soon as I touched her pindot velvet blouse I fell in love with the fabric and knew it was a piece I needed on a cold winter day with a hot chocolate in my hand by the fireplace.

Cuando escuché por primera vez de la colaboración con Alexa Chung Madewell yo estaba entusiasmado y nervioso (para mi cartera). Desde que esta en la escena siempre he admirado tanto su pelo y el estilo que ha importado de su tierra natal, Inglaterra. Su línea es de peter pan cuellos, abrigos pesados todavía estructurado, y pantalones cortos de otoño. Tan pronto como tocó la blusa de terciopelo pindot me enamoré de la tela y sabía que era una pieza que necesitaba en un frío día de invierno con un chocolate caliente en la mano junto a la chimenea.
