Meet Alexa Bennett, age 23 from Connecticut / Florida…
Last item of clothing you bought and for how much? I bought a floral skirt from Nordstrom for $60. I envision wearing it with my denim vest and lots of accessories.
Dream Job? I would love to be a stylist or working in the accessories department of a fashion magazine.
Your fashion inspiration? I find inspiration everywhere. I am inspired by window displays, street style, fellow fashion bloggers, my friends, and most importantly my mom. She has always had such amazing style and is a great shopping partner!
Something about yourself most people don’t know: I have two: I am currently attending graduate school working towards a masters in elementary education and I eat a gluten free diet.
What color do you own most of: The majority of my clothes are black. I have been trying, over the past year, to add more colors and patterns into my wardrobe, and I think I’m doing a great job! The colors I gravitate towards most are purples and oranges.
Fav stores: I love Madewell— the majority of the clothes in my closet are Madewell. I love the style of the store and the downtown vibe that it has. I even get inspired by the displays at Madewell— last summer at their lower 5th Avenue location, they displayed clothes using vintage suitcases! I also do a lot of shopping at Zara and H&M, and at Henri Bendel for inspiration and beautiful jewels.
One outfit you couldn’t live without? I cannot live without my Theory leather jacket. I know that’s not a complete outfit but I wear it almost daily.
Fav designer? I love Alexander McQueen, Catherine Maladrino, and Diane Von Furstenberg
Fav fashion mag? My favorite magazines are W, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar
