Review: It by Alexa Chung

“You know what you like, so follow your gut.”

I love photographs, and I also recently discovered my love for memoirs (thanks to I’m Supposed to Protect You from All This by Nadja Spiegelman), so this book came at the perfect time for me to read and enjoy.

It covers everything from Alexa Chung’s thoughts on life, love and music to her favourite looks and how to decide what to wear in the morning. There’s also talk of first favorites— varying from clothes to anthems to movies… and, of course, featuring gorgeous pictures and illustrations. The images honesty made this book for me.

All these images managed to capture beauty, style, and essence. “Yet my appetite for more, more, more rages on unabated.”

I thought going into this that it was going to sound semi-pretentious, but I – for the most part – really liked Alexa Chung’s writing voice. She’s definitely a unique fashion icon.

All in all, I would say that I enjoyed the vibe this book gave off, but there were some problematic sayings that made me lower my rating.

3/5 stars
