I’m Alexa, a native New Yorker and self proclaimed fashion guru. I grew up with the streets as my runway and Vogue as my bible. On December 28th a bohemian goddess emerged into the world. Yes, that’s me. I was born a fashionista. My first sentence was, “No jeans mommy.” From then on, it was goodbye to my brother’s handy-me-downs, and hello to pink light up sketchers (they were a thing back then), although I am now a big supporter of vintage.
I believe style is more than what you wear. A wise man named Yves Saint Laurent once said, “Fashions fade style is eternal.” Style comes from within and gives you the ability to express who you are, without even having to say a word. Style is influenced by various sources of inspiration, like where you go and what you see. Over the last 20 years, my style has been influence by my mother (who wears ripped up jeans with rock and roll t-shirts), my w(a/o)nderlust, the concerts my parents started subjecting me to when I was little, and much more. With no surprise, a hippie gypsy who loves food, travel, yoga, coffee, and fashion emerged.
Two years ago I moved across the country to attend The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications at Arizona State University. To prepare me for a job at Vogue under Anna Wintour I have had a number of fashionable internships. I hope to one-day work for a major fashion publication, or become a full time mermaid.
