Alexander Wang at Holt Renfrew

Hi Friends,
Last Wednesday, I hustled over to Holt Renfrew at lunch-hour to meet the King of the Model-Off-Duty Look, the modern deity of luxe streetwear: Alexander Wang. The crowd was one of the best dressed I've ever seen, and attracted women of all ages, from teens to 60's, which just exemplifies just how universal his designs are. Alex was totally gracious, taking multiple pictures with whoever wanted them and introducing himself to everyone: "Hi, Nice to meet you! I'm Alex!", as if his biggest fans didn't already know that! Big thanks to Holt Renfrew for hosting the event, it was a great experience, and I'm really hoping there will be more like it in the future!


(T by Alexander Wang tank, Topshop trousers from Jonathan & Olivia, Thrifted granny shoes, Vintage Dooney & Bourke bucket bag from I Miss You Vintage - my most favourite recent purchase!)

  30. Que pelazo tiene esta chica.. Pero no me gusta mucho como le quedan las gafas, Ademas de que ese modelo de rayban no suele favorecer a mucha gente.
    besitos, xx

  31. the pics of you and Alex are soooo sweet ;) You guys look awesome!

    LOVE this look on you but what i honestly love the most is the bag. my mom used to be in love with D&B bags and had this massive collection in the 90's but she's so OCD about clutter that she compulsively gives everything away and got rid of some of the gorgeous bags she had...and clothes. she drives me nuts lol. anyways, so i was telling her about a yr ago that i was on ebay looking to bid on a Dooney bucket bag like the one you have, but navy...and shes like ooooohhh i used to have that one...bla bla bla...life isn't fair haha!!!!

  51. Haha, he is GODLY but I never considered his clothes universal, only because all the fatties would spill out of it and the older women would look inappropriate in them, etc.

    It's the cool girl's uniform and that's that.

    So envious that you met him!

  52. I like your sunglasses, the hole outfit. (:
