Who doesn't have a soft spot for Alexa Chung - that girl is dam right likeable isn't she? With her eclectic tomboy meets school girl image, she can make any old floral 90's fitting dress look, well... COOL! Viewing her latest collection for US label Madewell you can see why many vintage lovers went crazy over the effortless, 'thrown-together' looks that most of the pieces sold out almost immediately. Here is a mash-up of my favourite pages from the lookbook, other lust-worthy Alexa pieces and my fetish for all things velvet! - Seriously, check out those velvet short shorts - I am lost for words!! ..... Must get back into sewing and try out my hand on a pair.

Head over to Madewell to view the rest of the lookbook and make sure you sign up to receive updates and notification of her upcoming Fall Collection.(which looks like it's going to be a hit judging from this collection) Alexa's Tried and True review is also worth a peek and so too is Madewells new arrivals page! I'm totally feeling the clashing shorts and sweaters trend composing possible outfits in my head already!

Only one more day till the weekend! :)
