WHO IS THIS COOL PEEP:
Blonde bombshell and actress extraordinaire, Alexandra Vino of HBO’s How To Make It In America.
THESE ARE A FEW OF HER FAVORITE THINGS:
Random Knowledge: I love learning about everything from where paper clips originated to human psychology.
Acting: My love for acting has a lot to do with the need for physical and emotional artistic expression, as well as self discovery, and discovery of others. I have built an entirely fresh appreciation for the world since my first method acting lesson. I love being inspired and passing it on.
Animals: I love animals and have an amazing little white snugglebug rescue of my own.
A girls day with tea, mani pedi and tons of giggles – Art – Pottery – A made bed to come home to!
ALEXANDRA’S FALL TREND WISH LIST:
Boots leggings and cozy cashmere sweaters!!
Personally I can’t stick to just one look! I have too much that I like…its all according to my mood. You’ll find me in biker boots and a leather jacket one day and a ruffled top with mini skirt and dark stockings the next. I no this year I am bringing in vintage styles and loving the tuxedo look a la Marlene Dietrich in the 20’s.
Its all about layering- I learned that Ralph Laurens motto is 5 piece minimum before you leave the house. This includes any layer or accessory.
WHAT ARE ALEXANDRA’S FAVORITE NYC HAUNTS:
Favorite NYC restaurant is Pure Food and Wine, Su En, Or Angelica’s Kitchen.
On the run…Whole Foods salad bar is always a quick go to for me.
Chelsea Market has the best stores for gifts, food, and they have pop up shopping sample sales often! LOVE IT!
There is an old church on 20th and 6th as well that has new vendors constantly coming in and out with the coolest designer fashions that you can’t just find anywhere. Also I the place is great because it is ALWAYS changing so its a new experience every time!
Casual 567 bar in meatpacking has the coolest underground cozy nook and cranny spot.
FRYING PAN as well…this is for when you are in sneaker and a t shirt and just want some fresh air with some great people. Its a giant ship that is permanently docked on the Hudson River with all the original fixtures, so you can go below deck like the titanic and find all sorts of interesting rooms….great environment!
WHAT SONG PLAYS IN THE ROOM WHEN YOU WALK IN:
Israel Kamakawiwo’Ol “Somewhere over the rainbow”
