A few weeks back, I mentioned that Alexa Chung is set to host a show about thrift shopping. In case you were wondering what Thrift America might be like, Style.com has released a video that features a shopping day with Chung in Williamsburg—a place she calls her “lover.” As expected, Chung brings her funny but awkward humor to every situation, which makes her fun to watch. She stops at her favorite neighborhood shops like Bird and Amarcord, and reveals her favorite thrift finds are sheepskin jackets and children’s school coats. The best takeaway from the video? Her view on the secondhand stench: “Don’t not wash it.” See the full clip after the jump.
Being Anna Dello Russo, fashion director at large for Vogue Nippon, isn’t easy. A self-described “passionate fashionista,” Dello Russo is a fanatic for wearing completely different, creative ensembles from head-to-toe every time she steps out in her stilettos. She is also known for being very media savvy, which is why she recently gave Style.com her gift ideas for some of the most famous fashion bloggers in the biz. See her picks, after the jump.
