The newly opened Madewell store at Westfield Shopping Center in San Francisco.
"Why are you all lined up outside a clothing store?"
"Uhh...'CAUSE ALEXA CHUNG IS HERE!!!" After saying this about a hundred and one times, I was ready to die from excitement just from waiting in line for the Alexa Chung + Madewell event to finally begin.
Clockwise from top: 1. Alexa with a fan. 2. A fellow shopper with her arms full of pieces from the collection. 3. The author with her style icon.

Her collection is a mix of everything and anything she has ever worn - references to Alexa's vast collection of vintage goodies are clearly visible, but there is something so endearing, so fun about the pieces that you can't help but love them. It's an opportunity for the lucky gals who snagged some goodies, to take a peek inside Alexa's amazing wonderland of a wardrobe.
Madewell is located in the Westfield Mall, 845 Market Street. 10 a.m. - 9 p.m. daily.
