Alexa Chung for Madewell – Georgetown Launch Party

In the spirit of the collection, I’m wearing a vintage polka-dot blouse (bought at VFW hosted by Goodwill and SpicyCandy DC), a heart-printed silk skirt from Zara, a vintage velvet clutch, and wood-heeled Mary-Janes from the GAP):

The line was long and the excitement level high:

She has the most endearing facial expressions (this may be an English trait):

This past Saturday, one of Britain’s it-girls, Alexa Chung, came to DC to celebrate the launch of her latest collaboration with Madewell. The collection features several vintage-inspired items (lace, polka-dotted blouses) and accessories (like the Zowie boots) that have become synonymous with Alexa’s style. Fans of her quirky, effortless look packed the Georgetown store to meet the sweet and beautiful Alexa, who greeted every one warmly and happily posed for pictures and signed autographs.
