Posh Mommies, I’m so excited to announce our July Blogger of the Month, Alexandra Evjen of avestyles.com. Alexandra’s business offerings include styling, art directing, and marketing, all influenced by years of styling that she’s done. We’re excited to highlight her because aside from being such a powerful force in the fashion world, she’s a down to earth mom, wife, and auntie who has one of the most beautiful instagram accounts we’ve ever seen. In fact, she’s in her 3rd trimester with baby number two, and she’s pulling it off with so much grace. Without further adieu, meet Alexandra!
1. Your favorite charity you feel passionate about & why?
I would love to support the Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona because there are so many children and adults that live with epilepsy and there is currently no cure. There are some medications that can somewhat help, but they all have fairly strong side-effects. My 6 year old niece has had to battle seizures since she was a baby, and it really affects her quality of life. [NOTE:We're so excited to support the Epilepsy Foundation as our Charity of the Month]2. Your favorite designer, fashion world personality, or fashion quote.
I most admire the career and professionalism of Grace Coddington. She walks to the beat of her own drum, and she always finds the most interesting way to look at fashion and beauty. "Always keep your eyes open. Keep watching. Because whatever you see can inspire you." - Grace Coddington // I think that attitude is an important one to adopt of life as a whole and to make it in the world of fashion.
3. Your favorite item on The Posh Mommy.
I love this Rachel Pally plunging v-neck maxi dress. It's so elegant, and the color is perfect for summer. I also love that I could wear this pregnant and postpartum.
[Here it is on Ciara and Jenna Tatum]
4. Your current favorite style/look.
My favorite style right now is all white or at least white denim with a great top. White is the hot color of the summer, and it's really refreshing to see women not be so scared of it now.
5. Tell us one article of clothing or accessory you can't live without and why.
The perfect black blazer. It automatically brings an element of sophistication to an outfit even if you want to wear jeans and a t-shirt.
