alexa chung for madewell

The Alexa Chung for Madewell adverts have been released and with the collection launching in under two weeks and Madewell refusing to ship internationally (bar the lucky few that live in Canada and Japan..) I'm wondering if we should hatch some sort of plan. Anybody Stateside willing to become the middle man, take orders and ship? And of course take a cut that doesn't absolutely take the piss? It would be good if we could settle this sensibly, instead I envisage hoards of it ending up on eBay with superduper price tags attached.

I'd love to act all blase and 'oh, what a fuss for items you could find second hand, it's only because they have Chung's name stitched inside' but as somebody who regularly hunts for flattering shorts in cord or velvet I'm bored of the trial and error of finding the right size and willing to hand over money. And besides who could resist Peter Pan collars and fuss-free dresses? The collection is abundant with pretty go-to pieces to bad out any in-transistion Autumn wardrobe.




Alexa Chung for Madewell will be available online from September 9th and in stores on September 11th.

i'd also love to find a pair of velvet shorts in a charity shop... at least this collection means i won't have to go looking for them. if only madwell shipped to the uk! there are services which give you an american postcode and then ship, but i don't know how trustworthy they are. that's maybe something you could look into? xo

Oh, the black dress with the collar looks just like my Charles Anastase dress.. and funnily enough I just recently got another Anastase dress that Alexa has been sighted in. Who could resist him?!
