It seems I’m not the only one with a girl-crush

I just read “The Making of Fashion’s Latest ‘It’ Girl” in today’s NY Times Style Section and I’m off to a happy start of my day. I try to pride myself on being against all things vain and vapid (especially involving pseudo-celebrities) but my girl-crush on Alexa Chung is an exception, right? She’s cheeky and cool with wit and true style… I am especially looking forward to her upcoming PBS show, Thrift America, where she scours thrift stores in places like Detroit, Nashville and Alabama for fabulous finds.¬†Whatever, I’m entitled to a few shallow indulgences once in a while.

But it seems I’m not alone…there are entire blogs dedicated to Alexa Chung:

Daily Alexa Chung ( has strangely intimate photos of her–which makes me think that one of her actual friends is the administrator of this blog and that makes it even creepier.


I Want to be Alexa Chung ( I think the blog name pretty much sums up the creep-factor on this blog. But according to this person’s last post, they’ve recognized the problem and put an end to it.¬†“I created this Tumblr in order to do something useful with the disgusting (and, dare I say it, disturbing) amount of Alexa Chung photos I have collected over the years. I do not own any of these and I do not remember where I found them all. ps – when I’m not being a sad stalker, I’m usually over here at Lovely Disco.

Alexa Chung World ( has on-the-street images but the creepy part (aside from the whole thing) are the captions and categories, “Cool Drink,” Alexa Holding a Glass of Drink,” “Alexa Having Wine,” “Having a Laugh,” “Alexa Laughing,” “Alexa in a Park,” “Alexa Chung in her overcoat.” What’s next, Little Bits of Alexa Chung in my Freezer? YIKES!!!

Not only do I feel much better about my minor infatuation but I’m back behind the pointed finger laughing at losers.
