Hi! I'm Alexandra. I am a freelance stylist for ecommerce at Urban.
What are you wearing today?
The cardigan is by Üterque, t-shirt by Rag&Bone, necklace and ring are my mother's, and the bracelet is vintage.
We've heard you are well-traveled. Where do you think the best shopping can be found abroad?
For vintage and thrift the US is fantastic! Towns vs. cities are better because you find more unique articles of clothing. In Spain the best stores I found were Le Swing, Boo, La Comercial, Santa Eulalia, and Los Encantes; it's a wonderful kitschy market. In Paris Colette, Merci and Kiliwatch are some of my favorites, along with shopping at Le Marais. In London I have always loved Dover Street market and Opening Ceremony; Portobello Road market is also always fun.
Is there a holy grail item you always keep an eye out for when shopping?
Well, there are two: the perfectly worn leather jacket and the perfect white button-down. I am still searching for both that will fit absolutely perfect.
What clothing item can you just not seem to stop wearing lately?
A leather jacket! I also just got some pieces by Isa Arfen's spring collection that are so amazing! They go with everything and anything.

One of greatest things Steve ever did was help create his super cute son Alex, which leads me to the following life plan: marry a skateboarder, move to L.A., have a son and force my husband to teach him to skate instead of play catch like normal dads do. When he goes pro at 16, I'll retire and sit back with my sk8r boi and soak in the sun, waves and cigarette smoke 'til death (or a younger girlfriend) do us part. —Ally
It's hard being a telemarketer 9 to 5, but it's not that hard for Adam, Blake and Ders from Workaholics, probs 'cause they're fucking stoned out of their brains all the time. Seriously, like sugar honey iced tea they are stoned. Here's how to get the Workaholics stoner style look down 'cause ya gotta, ya gotta, ya gotta be fresh. - Hazel
A simple button down for work.
Graze looks like it's one of the best boxes out there. It's only $5, so like, YES PLZ, and every box is filled with delicious, healthy snacks. Sadly, you need an invitation code to sign up right now, but if you stalk your friends who were lucky enough to sign up for Graze and receive an invite code, then you might be able to get your hands on one.
Love With Food
The Love With Food box is also pretty cheap, and it's fancy gourmet samples, which is totes fun to get in the mail. It's a great way to try that $20 tea you've had your eye on without actually spending $20 on tea.

At $19.95 a month, the Vegan Cuts box is a little bit pricier than the previous two, but it's full of great vegan snacks. Since vegan products aren't found everywhere, it's a good way to try some stuff that may not be available locally. Plus, if you share this box with a pal, it's only $10 a month!
Cheating with this one a little because Bespoke Post isn't all food, but the food it does have looks b o m b. The Bespoke Post box is actually curated for men, but it's not filled with Axe Body Spray; the boxes revolve around booze, food and accessories, so they're something that people of both genders would be interested in. At $45 it's the most expensive listed, but the boxes, filled with coffee grinders and weekender bags, definitely seem worth it.
