MCM Blogger Makeover - Alex Loves

23-11-2010

Alexandra Vanthournout  aka Alex Loves is a 25 years old Freelance Fashion Journalist originally from Belgium but based in London.


Like many of us, Alex  "finds it hard to describe to describe her style, as it's all over the place" but then she specifies it is "somewhere in between rock-chick and preppy". She admits to wearing black most of the time as "it's elegant and suits any situation. For me, it's all about the cut and small details to give an outfit that extra edge."


Her best bag story involves Chanel - a universal bag story! "This summer I turned 25 and made a shortlist of bags I wanted and put it on my blog. A lot of people got involved and eventually helped me decide to pick the classic Chanel bag. Now when I go to events, people I don't even know often ask me "is this THE bag?". It's a great reminder of a very special birthday for me!"


At the shoot, Alex picked the Glam Rock Tambourine bag in black and the Notte from the NY collection (in camel). She explains that "when it comes to bags, for me it's a case of the bigger the better! I need a place to put my flats when I go out, my camera, my phone, my notebooks, and whatever else I randomly keep in my bag! I loved the luxurious feel to the soft leather had, and the large handles which allow it to be carried around the shoulder without too much fuss. It's pretty simple in shape and design, and in my experience those are the bags that become classics - they never go out of style!"
