Wednesday, April 25, 2012 A Week With: Alex, The Girl Who Knows How To Get Things Done

Thrifted bustier, Vintage DIY studded cutoffs, Jeffrey Campbell boots, Ray-Ban sunglasses, Nasty Gal Tribal Collar Necklace

Meet Alex, our Production Coordinator. She can usually be spotted running around the office with an armful of colorful fabrics, while sporting the highest platforms like no other. With an effortless ’90s rocker babe style, we’re constantly wowed by her cool looks and amazing organizational skills. Her philosophy when getting dressed – “I always find myself wearing variations of the same outfits every day. My closet staples are really soft vintage tees, cutoffs, mini skirts and big, chunky boots. I build the rest of my outfit from those pieces.”

“This is basically my default weekend outfit, whether I’m rolling out of bed to go to the diner or meeting friends at the flea market. I just got this alien tattoo after watching The X-Files marathon-style over the last few months. God, I hope my mom doesn’t read this.”

Nasty Gal x MinkPink Sarina Maxi Dress, Substitute Floam Platforms, Ray-Ban sunglasses, her mom’s necklace from Argentina 

“I like to call this my Hawaiian honeymoon look. I just got back from Palm Springs and literally wore this all weekend. These are my all-time favorite shoes at the moment. I’m really small, so I love how tall they make me. I’m like, 5’7″ in these bad boys.”

 ”I like to open this book, Be Here Now, to a page every day because it has psychedelic words of wisdom and rad illustrations.”

 Truth & Pride Leather Vest, Vintage Cutoffs, Nasty Gal Tribal Collar Necklace, Ray-Ban sunglasses, Alexander Wang bag

“Remember how I told you I wear the almost the same outfit every day? I wasn’t kidding. BUT, I’ll switch out my cardigan for a leather moto vest before heading to meet friends at a dive bar or show. It’s a super easy piece that makes anything look instantly badass.”

 Vintage chiffon tank, Vintage maxi skirt, Random jewelry

“This skirt is my favorite Goodwill find ever. I mean it’s velvet ombré – I can’t really think of a better combination. I love the ’90s witch vibes it gives off…probably because The Craft is still one of my favorite movies of all time.”

“I’ve acquired a pretty awesome collection of vintage rock tees over the years, and this is one of my favorites. I found these creepy skeleton beads at a bead shop, so of course I had to get them.”

Wrangler leather jacket, Bess tee, Somedays Lovin’ Tied Up Skirt, Vintage Mickey Mouse sunglasses 

“This is my go-to work outfit, because the black mini makes me feel a little more dressed up than wearing cutoffs. You really can’t go wrong with the perfect leather jacket and little black skirt. It’s just all about finding basic pieces with interesting details.”

 ”I had to stop to take a picture of this weird flyer I found on the street that said, “Sarah, it’s Mani. I miss you. Call me.”
