It by Alexa Chung

There are five items in my wardrobe I cannot live without. The cornerstones I rely upon to make newer, weirder clothing look OK. Without them I would be lost.

My relationship with my denim hotpants is incredibly special. I pack them in my hand luggage when I travel because I fear that one day we will be separated and I will be forced to go out bottomless forevermore because no other shorts will ever be able to replace them. Since the day I found them lurking in a Brixton charity shop we have become so inseparable that even when I take them off they still retain the shape of my bum as they lie on my bedroom floor. I use them to dress down a flashy top, as a practical alternative to muddy trousers at festivals, and over the years have cut them shorter and shorter so that they are now borderline obscene (they keep getting cheekier). Until the denim disintegrates and falls off me, these particular hotpants are here to stay. A navy blue jumper is potentially the most boring item anyone could design and yet it’s my most important possession. The one I own belongs to an ex-boyfriend, and before shops caught on and made ‘boyfriend-fit jeans’ and ‘boyfriend sweaters’ everyone was happily throwing on their actual boyfriend’s belongings to keep warm. I have never travelled without it and it has rescued me from many mornings of outfit panic. Once when I was heartbroken a male friend of mine sent me his navy cashmere jumper to wear as a perpetual hug to cheer me up. It worked. My Burberry trench coat is something I saved up for a long time to buy. When I wear it I feel like a French detective from the sixties. Yet I love how quintessentially British it is, in that it’s practical yet proper. It was either this or a cagoule. I think I made the right choice. Every woman needs s a transportable receptacle to shove her collection of clutter into, and as much as I love some It Bag arm candy I am just as happy to pile everything into a canvas tote. Sometimes I wish I could live like a man and fit everything I need into a single back pocket but that’s never going to happen and besides, then I would lose out on the daily drama that occurs when I think I’ve lost something and have to tip the contents of my bag out only to discover my phone is in my hand. I think a canvas tote bag is as classic as a Chanel 2.55 and the bonus is you can shove it in a washing machine without having a mental breakdown. I thought I could narrow it down to five items I couldn’t live without but I can’t, so: ankle boots because you can wear them with literally anything. A pair of Wayfarer sunglasses—wear at night to seem extra aloof. Ballet flats—I can’t dance but that doesn’t stop me from trying. Dungarees—it’s fine that only toddlers and me like these. A white shirt—a no-brainer.

A lire comme on lit le journal intime d'une copine! Le ton est léger et sans prétention, drôle et vrai. Un vrai petit bijou d'inspiration à l'image de son auteure.

Très déçue, ce livre est d'un creux...! on dirait le journal d'une gamine de 14 ans! Même les soi-disant "astuces" sont nulles... Appeler ça un livre c'est lui faire trop d'honneur...

1.0 étoiles sur 5 There's Nothing to "It" 31 octobre 2013
Par Sophie Winsome - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Wow! What a mess and a huge mistake by me (and Alexa).
I expected so much more and was left with a feeling that Alexa Chung and her friends need a huge reality check.

I usually love books like this and was expecting something along the lines of 'Rookie Yearbook One' by Tavi Gevinson or 'The Goddess Guide' by Gisele Scanlon - one of my all time favourite books.

I'm 19 and when I heard Alexa was writing a book I thought that's my Christmas list sorted but unfortunately no. If it were even a tiny bit more like The Goddess Guide with drawings and photographs and personal stories I'd have given it another star but unfortunately I've found nothing to date as cool for art, photography and super smart writing.

Also I don't like the "It" title. What does "It" mean?

It seems that "It" is devoid of any reality....

John Crace's 'Digested Read' in The Guardian, reviewed 'It' and summed up exactly how I feel here after 1 hour of frustrated reading...

There's nothing to "It"

I still love Alexa on TV but I'm afraid from now on I'll give her books a miss.

Unfortunately on this occasion she comes across as sycophantic and rather uncool. There's very little to champion here : ( and it's also too expensive.

I hate being so negative but "It" is a huge disappointment. : (

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I LOVE YOU ALEXA, BUT WHYYY? 6 décembre 2013
Par RJ - Publié sur Amazon.com

As soon as I heard that Alexa Chung was writing a book I jumped on amazon and pre-ordered. I wish her book had more substance. Reading her book was a painful experience. She is an amazing host and has amazing style... Maybe she should stick to what she knows best. The book is aesthetically pleasing. The pictures makeup for the lack of effort that seems to have gone into the writing. After reading this book I felt I wasted my money.

Here is a short list of other ways to use this product:
coaster
stop wobbly tables
game of catch
hollow out pages to hide things inside
use pages for gift warp/tissue paper

ALEXA,
IF YOU EVER DECIDE TO WRITE ANOTHER BOOK PLEASE MAKE IT WORTH BUYING.
THANK YOU.

Terribly disappointed. Zero editorial value. As much as I would like to believe Alexa has brains, this book shows little of it.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not worth the hype 1 janvier 2014
Par elizabeth - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Ok. This book was nothing better than ok. Honestly, I probably should have only given it two stars it was that bad. I personally love fashion and I have read and liked numerous other "fashion insider" books but this one basically felt like a joke. The only remotely interesting thing in this book is when Alexa references the people that inspire her fashion choices. But, if you also feel that Jeremy Irons floppy hair makes you want to wear burberry and miu miu then you and Alexa are two of a kind (anyone who read the book will know what I am referring too). Her whole post on "how to take a selfie" was so bad I couldn't read the whole thing. The whole book feels like she took her "I try to look like I don't care but I do" attitude a little too far. She honestly gives no worthwhile advice or even puts an effort into making the book interesting. If your are going to spend $30 on a book, buy Grace Coddington's Memoir! She is the stylist for Vogue US and that book seriously inspired me so much more than this crap. I wish someone would have told me how bad this book was and I would have been $30 richer.

I really love Alexa's style and everything about her. That's why it's soooo painful for me to say that it was kind of (totally) painful to read. Take all her instagram and facebook pics and posts, print them and charge $25 for it. that's what this book is all about.
