9 to 9 Chic, Alexa Chung for Madewell!!

Yes, I need to look chic from 9 A.M. to 9 P.M and from Sunday to Saturday. I seldom take a break from fashion unless I am dead. { make sense, right?} 


My girl friends and I are planning a Vegas trip in Nov. In fact, we are all set to go for we already had our plane tickets confirmed and hotel booked. Now, it's time to arrange our 3-day-looks during our stay in the sin city!!!! 


The other day Pei is talking to me about this Alexa Chung collaboration with Madewell and she has ordered couple pieces online which she is sort of like and dislike for many reasons. I personally am not too fancy about "celebrity's collaboration" in RTW as I distinguish them apart from amateurs, somewhat professionals and very professionals in what they do. I appreciate designers for their genius works, passion and true talents so that leave me skeptical about the idea of putting "celebrities' style" on the apparel business. 


Well, all that being said is I have to at least try something on of this Alexa Chung collection to do the justices. Fair enough, right? 


I fall in love with this ivory wool/Mohair and contrasting trim cardigan for its resemblance to the cardigans from Chanel. {She does love Chanel, doesn't she? Besides, Alexa reminds me of my Valentino Rock studs heels as well since she seems very fond of that heels too.}  (Cardigan at Madewell.com $158)

Her style is profound and this whole "Alexa Chung for Madewell" collection is pretty much her signature style in miniature. Well, I like it~~ ^O^
