So unless you've unsubscribed from all your emails this week, you'll have no doubt heard about 2 of the most talked about Fashion Collaborations that landed this week... Beyonce and her Ivy Park range (coming to this Blog v. soon...) AND the Alexa Chung Archive Collection for M&S!! Oh, ma, gawd.
As soon as I heard this had launched, I rushed online to see which iconic pieces Alexa had styled up. The range didn't disappoint. Combining Alexas, classic, preppy style with some of M&S's most iconic pieces, the collection is unique yet stylish.
There were a few things that caught my eye, but this Eliza dress stole my heart! The paisley print is retro, but the bright colours give it a modern, Summery feel. I was really surprised when it arrived as this was not quite as I thought it would be like from seeing the pics online. However, I do think it's actually nicer!
I also picked up the Mae playsuit which looks really cute with a white or striped tee underneath, and also the Ada blazer which again, is much nicer in real life! The lining is stunning and the fit is really flattering. A really great quality piece. I was really impressed with the pricing of the range too and am pleased to see that M&S haven't pushed the prices up unnecessarily.
Outfit: The Eliza Dress - By Alexa Chung at Marks and Spencer, Vintage Pom Pom Jacket - ASOS, Brogues - Zara
Accessories - Tribal Belt - ASOS (Similar) Rose Gold Watch - Abbott Lyon*, Watercolor Hair by Ethos and Matrix
FYI - it looks like this dress is already one of the most popular pieces in the range... I've already seen it being styled up by Alex Jones on the One Show, and also my Auntie Michelle has admitted to snapping this up! (And she's super stylish)
I teamed my dress with my trusty Zara brogues (very Alexa of me) and this vintage jacket on ASOS. I love the Pom Pom detail on the cuffs and hem! It's perfect for the upcoming festival season and the boxy shape is very on trend right now.
What is your fave piece from the Alexa Chung collection? Let me know if you would wear this dress or not!
