It’s no secret Alexa Chung is a style icon and a music savant. Chung’s first book It, gives us a look into her eccentric world, and her very own style inspirations. This is a must read for fashion and music lovers. In the book, Chung covers topics about her life, style, and even has special chapter on dealing with heartbreak.
Many style icons like Jane Birkin, Edie Sedgwick and Kate Moss are all people Chung sites as inspirations in her book. Chung even speaks on male influences like Mick Jagger and Geroge Harrison. Tips on how to get that “effortless look” and ‘must have items in the closet’ are also given.
My favorite part of It has to be the section on heartbreak. It’s something that hits so close to home for so many of us. The topic speaks on points we’ve all heard before, but Chung’s witty humor makes it all that much better as she gives her honest “non-sugar-coated” opinion.
” Instagram will not mend your broken heart, despite your best efforts to post pictures of yourself looking ‘happy’. Every time you post a picture of yourself to Instagram looking fake happy a fairy dies. Fact. Also, scrolling through pictures of girls your ex may or may not be shagging won’t help you. You need to remind yourself that the right filter can be fantastically flattering and she probably doesn’t look that good in real life. “
The Chung has spoken. Admit it, we’ve all done it. We were all thinking it.
Full of photos, drawings, musings, and ideas, It is not just a book. It’s a journal of Chung’s mind. This is a quick read that is filled with so many gems. Plus, who doesn’t love a book with pictures?! If you love fashion, music and the Chung as much as I do, you should go get It now.
OK, let’s kickoff the new year and blog with a musical bang. I should mention early on that I am a big Oasis fan (as evident in my blog name) and an even bigger Noel Gallagher fan. That man is a genius all around. So don’t be surprised if I make quite a bit of Oasis/Noel Gallagher reference. Sorry, I’m not sorry! I’ve chosen “The Hindu Times” by Oasis to share today because of the uplifting melody of the song. We all love a song whose lyrics relate to a specific situation in our lives, but there is something about an all out, “feel good” song to start off the day and the weekend. Enjoy friends!
