Get Alexa Chung's style with summer tea dresses

You don't have to be young to dress young. You certainly will look younger in a lovely summer dress and that doesn't cost a mint.

Fashionista Alexa Chung stayed true to her unique blend of cute and flirty with an alluring outfit at the NME awards back in February. Her navy blue Valentino tea dress was adorned with a sweet floral pattern, whilst the sheer upper half brought a more sultry element to the overall look.

Speaking to Grazia about her famed sense of style, she revealed that she looks for designs which have “a sense of humour to them, and they’re not necessarily driven by commercial success or a sexy vibe”. Alexa’s outfit certainly had a good dose of the kooky British eccentricity that she’s famous for, whilst remaining beautifully feminine and demure.
Recently appointed as the British Fashion Council’s Young Style Ambassador, Alexa has garnered a huge following from designers and fashion fans alike, and can always be relied upon to bring her own flavour to the latest trends.

Another English rose, girl-next-door Holly Willoughby, has designed her own range of summer dresses that ooze loveliness. The co-presenter of The Voice is known for her enviable gorgeous curves and classic wardrobe choices. She recently told the Mirror that she hugely admires the Duchess of Cambridge’s elegant style: “I’d love to talk shoes, clothes, and wardrobes with Kate Middleton over a nice cup of tea”.

Holly’s range includes plenty of options that will take you from spring through to summer, with vintage inspired tunic and tea dresses aplenty. The tea dress has been a catwalk hit this season, and has firmly established itself as a wardrobe essential for 2012. Associated with the glamour of the 1940s, it’s bound to make you feel ladylike.

What’s more, this style isn’t just for strolls in the park and weekend walkabouts – the wide selection of day dresses online could inject some summer fun into your workwear choices. If you’re tired of wintry dresses and suits, a lightweight tunic combined with a sharp blazer will keep you looking professional yet stylish. There’s a whole range out there, from designs with bold colours to more subdued pastels. Whatever your style, these summer dresses are bound to bring a bit of Alexa and Holly’s classic English chic into your wardrobe.

Always Posh in my Own Styles.

I had a busy week, plus the last bits of planning for NYC trip.  Dinner and brunch reservations, and we even bought Hamilton musical tickets. Since we are visiting NYC during Memorial weekend, hope we can find some good bargain shopping in The Big Apple too. One thing I am sure with this girls' trip is we are going to have tons of fun before one of my gf goes to law school this fall. It is a clean slate for her and I am sure it will also be a magnificent journey down the road. 
Back to my all time passion: Fashion. I like fine garments and I collect them to do mix and match over past seasons. However, what makes my style unique is intricate cuttings and perfect fitting that flatter my body. I don't follow trends just to claim I am fashion forward. I have my own methods of sorting through marketing injected advertisements for the best seasonal looks. Popularity isn't gained from what brands you wear but what styles you choose to wear. I wear street fashion in discretion just…

Wedge + Clog ! MINE is Clog + Heel!

I came across this Max Mara clog heels. I can't help myself buying it.

Now I am very excited.....why? Cause' it is extraordinary. I love the golden studded along the leather and since I don't like wedge too much, this stiletto is perfect for me.

So, did you see the bottom picture to the right? Kate Olsen!!? or Dree Hemingway's looks might work w/ Max Mara clog heels. ( Whose pic. is the very first one w/ fuchsia vest) Normally I am not a copy cat, but this time, I will see if I have something similar like what she wears w/. Yes, that will be a good start to tackle this pair of heels.

How Life is ... How You Respond to it?

After almost a year and a half hiatus, I am back writing my blogs again. There are a lot of memorable activities that happened and I recently moved to another house, which I can say without a doubt, is my dream house. It has a nice swimming pool, great landscapes, and a media room in the basement. I always feel unsettled at first when I move into a new place but once I have a vision of how I can make it my home, I'd start the remodel right away. You do everything you can to make yourself "comfortable" in every circumstance, right? 
     I am here at Reno now. Not for skiing, not for gambling, but for my girl's volleyball tournament. A lot of you didn't know I have a daughter who's going to be 13 this year and I am so proud of her unique talents. What do we call them?  iGeneration. The most precious years of their life: teenage years. They are mostly on their own, developing their personality, their existence, and identifying their self-worth. All we paren…
