oh alexa

Since my life these days is one long bicycle ride, yesterday afternoon I rode down to Robber to drop off an issue of Russh magazine for Erin. Geoff and I were standing around and chatting with her when Alexa Chung walked in with a friend. Maybe she liked the banners!

I don't usually get starstruck, but I have to admit that it was pretty amazing -- she has that same effortlessly stylish, down-to-earth air that women such as Charlotte Gainsbourg have. Gorgeous, and super sweet too... if only style were transfered via standing in the same room as her!

  3. Caitlyn: Ha! She was dressed impeccably, of course (she was actually wearing that "Hero" t-shirt in the picture above), but she was super humble and normal!

  4. Erin: It doesn't hurt that she can basically wear whatever she wants and it looks like a million bucks!

  8. Tara: That's hilarious! I've seen a lot of pictures of her lately on a lot of blogs, mostly for her pretty hair!

    Hannah: Actually, I made eye contact with her and ran away! But she was lovely and all smiles and I know she was wonderful with Erin.

    Melly: Haha! Erin and I just kind of looked at each other with really big eyes and while trying not to laugh too much!
