Alexandra on H&M, printed tees, combat boots with dresses

What are you wearing right now?
This shirt is from a small boutique in Queens called KrisTees and she has a lot of small designers from the area, which I like a lot because you can find some really unique things. A local artist named named Mieko designed it and made the print. These boots are Steve Madden, they’re combat boots. My skinny jeans are from H&M or something, you know, cheap, $20 jeans. And this sweater’s also from H&M. I like mixing up old with new – my watch is my great grandmother’s.

What’s one fashion trend that you could think of today that makes you cringe?
I don’t know if I’m a big fan of tights with shorts. Some people can pull it off, but I don’t think I’m that big of a fan of it. I think if you’re wearing a cool tight, you can get away with it; like if it has a print on it or has some edge to it.

If you wanted to go out and feel especially sexy, what would you wear?
Sexy? I’d probably wear a hot black dress and, I don’t know why, but I like wearing my combat boots with a dress – it adds a touch of masculinity to something feminine.

What men’s fashion trends annoy you?
Don’t wear socks with sandles and don’t wear clothes that are way too big for your body. I don’t get the whole huge, baggy, let’s-cover-up-my-whole-body look. They need to tighten it up a little bit.

What if it’s too tight?
It does take a certain kind of guy to pull of the really skinny jean, but for the most part I don’t mind it that much. You do have to kind of have chicken legs in order to pull off really skinny jeans.

What’s one thing that you see in a guy’s apartment that would make you spend the night?
They don’t have to be like a super clean freak, but if they’re put together, and there’s a sense of style in his apartment so that you can tell he’s got something going on with his own personal style. It’s not just frat house messy.

And what would make you leave?
If the toilet seat was up.
