[Blouse & Trousers: Archive by Alexa at Marks & Spencer | Shoes: Valentino]
 
 
I'm always a bit hesitant to jump on any bandwagon. Whether its the everlasting love for MAC cosmetics, the Oskia gel that's every one's favourite or this whole 'strobbing' thing - I just never fall for a hype. Don't get me wrong, often curiosity does kill that cat and I do step foot on the wagon - Rimmel 107, anyone? - Besides this, there has been one trend in the airwaves recently that has got me exited, a collaboration between the kings of the meals-for-two and the, well, would the-most-stylish-women-out-there be too much of a boast? - the #ArchivebyAlexa range for Marks & Spencer is what I'm talking about. A collection designed through the influence of the archives of Marks & Spencer.
I have to admit, I wasn't crazy about the range at first glance. I kind of thought, 'oh, is this really it?' But once you actually look into the range properly, there are some real timeless pieces (oh look at me, sounding like I know what I'm on about #watchoutannawintour)
I eventually bought the 'Harry' Blouse in the light pink and the 'Lydia' trousers in a black and white gingham pattern. Both items are made with high quality material, to be honest I would never expect M&S to sell anything other. 
I agree, that the style of blouse is not to everyone's taste, it certainly took me a couple of times of looking at it to finally fall in love, but now I have it in my wardrobe, I think its beautiful.
 
Can Alexa Chung really do anything wrong? Well she hasn't really faltered yet as far as I'm aware...!
