Here, for your delectation, is the current (March 2010) cover of UK Vogue magazine featuring the fashion world’s darling du jour, Alexa Chung:
Alexa Chung wears wool blazer, £1,140. Cotton Shirt, £2245. Beaded denim jeans, £7,415. All Ralph Lauren. Leather clogs, from £470, Chanel. Cameo skull necklace, from £850, Iosselliani.com.
Darlings, we’re in a recession (or just coming out of one, depending who you believe). £7,415 for a pair of jeans? Reeeaaaaally?
I’m not one to brag, but I think Vogue could learn a lesson or two from browsing on Etsy. ;p
Here, also (one tentatively hopes) for your delectation, are some further choices to re-create the Alexa Chung Vogue cover look for fewer fistfulls of cash (several thousand pounds less, in fact!)
Direct links to items shown:
I have always had a little place in my heart for clogs – see yesterday’s bargain hunter post for another pair of Alexa Chung style high-heeled ones for those of us who aren’t on a Chanel budget. I am rather pleased with the resurgence of the clog and shall have to invest in a pair, I think. Of course the blazer / white shirt / jeans look will never die, so this is a very easy look to re-create from items already in your wardrobe or at least very cheaply.
My advice if you’re buying new and looking to splurge? Spend the most cash on the blazer, you’ll be wearing it in ten years time if it’s a classic shape and well made.

Well, I think so anyway. ;p
