My order hasn't yet arrived, DayDreamNation; thus I cannot say too much about the quality. :p I ordered the bat-hello T-shirt dress last time, and it is extremely soft & cozy. Wear it at home lounging around mostly.

P.s. If your moniker is an homage to Sonic Youth, love it!

For those curious about the quality of the Alexa Chung for Madewell collection, I bought the lace dress and the Cora polka-dot blouse, and both are excellent! I think their quality is pretty well-matched to their prices considering they have Alexa's name on them, which obviously means they charge at least a little more than they ought to.

But yeah, I'm very satisfied with both pieces – I wish I could've afforded the boots and the suede biker jacket too! Hopefully I'll be able to snag those on ebay some day...

I love the last outfit in post #47. Can anyone i.d. her black sweater there? I never tire of looking at photos of her; she is so uniquely lovely. I hope she kicks the smoking habit though; it will eventuallt catch up on the skin, not to mention health, and she has such a nice complexion.

(oh, and boooooo for posing with TR. )

Yes, she is very full of herself. I know someone who knows her well and she has said since she met Alexa, fame has really got to her head, and she does have a very high opinion of herself. She has always been slightly arrogant, but it was never this bad 5 years ago. Still, despite that I love her personality, her humour, and her style, and we should probably stick to discussing what she's wearing.

ugh. this again. Unless people know her personally (second hand info doesnt really count) I don't think anyone is in the position to pass judgement. It would be a different thing if she did tell all interviews or had a reality tv show but she doesn't, therefore I think its impossible and unfair to say what she is like in real life.

I would add - we can hardly complain about Alexa's personality, since it's the way she channels that personality into her clothes that makes us want to dress like her! :p

True. We are after her style. I have always got a good vibe about her personality via videos, interviews, t.v. shows, etc: she seems confident but by no means conceited. And she comes off eloquently and intelligently, which is refreshing.
