you might recognize alexia as the face of esby-on-the-web for the fw16 season. alexia is a small business owner with a sense of community that we admire. her style is lived in-chic, her hair is a deep source of envy, and we're so proud to have her here!
where do you live and what do you do?
i live in east austin and own a retail shop called byron & blue.
what new hobby or activity are you enjoying?
i recently started making body scrubs. it’s fun to play with different scents and ingredients and my skin is pretty darn smooth now.
coffee or tea?
french fries or crusty bread?
crusty bread dipped in olive oil.
favorite fashion trend you wish was a classic.
i would love for high waisted jeans to never go out of style.
best fashion movie or book or magazine
it isn’t really a fashion movie, but I recently saw The Single Man, which was directed by tom ford, after having loved the book by christopher isherwood. every scene looks as if it’s from a page of vogue. it’s a beautiful film.
up at 7:30, coffee, breakfast with my partner, play with the dog. i also try to read a little and then answer emails before heading to work. i need to incorporate some yoga!
watching makeup tutorial videos on instagram. i don’t wear a lot of makeup, but there’s something oddly exciting in seeing someone completely transform themselves.
what's the esby piece you wish you were wearing right now and what way you would style it?
the ivory duffy jumper. i'd wear it with a vintage jean jacket and clogs.
who is an influential woman in your life?
my grandma jo was a tough lady who raised her kids alone after my grandfather died suddenly. she traveled the world and spent her life focusing on her hobbies and passions. i've always admired her strength and loved that she dedicated her life to what made her happy.
