Look Of The Week: Alexandra


Introduce yourself! Tell us what you do at UO.
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.
