Alexa Chung for Madewell

You might remember Alexa Chung from MTV's 'It's on with Alexa Chung' (or as her long stint as a model) but these days Alexa is working busy to promote her new line of clothing. The Alexa Chung for Madewell party felt like I was walking into a different world - a world where people were calm and happy and rode their bikes to work, stopping along the way to pick flowers and put them in their hair or bring home to decorate the tables. The clothing is very cozy and very chic. I definitely got that 'artsy' Anthropologie vibe. As for where the clothes will actually be sold - I was told mostly online for now*

Recap from working Mercedes-Benz Fashion week for Fashion News Live

Chat with Katy Winn from Wenn Images - we joke about outfits we have worn in our past that now make us cringe in retrospect (I tell her the story if my red velvet catsuit I found sexy in high school, don't judge - in order to be fashion forward, one must take fashion risks, we both agreed*) (*Note: Katy is wearing bright - very bright blue high top sneakers - which btw not too many people can pull off* She makes it work*) Walk around for about an hour marveling at how pretty the cast of 'The City' are in person (Which I do every time I see them!) 3PM: Show starts - seated front row next to Rocco (Thankyou Rocco)! Lots of interesting drapery, metallic knits, chunky shoes, knee high boots, leather gloves, leather hats...big, big hair*
