Girl Fashion Crush: Alexis Krauss of Sleigh Bells

Who would ever have thought I would love a girl whose predominant claim to fashion fame is shiny 80s spandex?  And yet, I'm intrigued.  She looks uniquely amazing--which is a perfect match for the music her band, Sleigh Bells, makes.  Fresh out of Brooklyn, she brings the noise both vocally and stylistically.

She is gorgeous no matter what she wears.  She has that total girl rocker vibe going on, from the blunt hairstyle (which I'm trying to get my hair to look just like) that she tosses around like a headbanger to her body that's curvy in all the right places--I guess you don't have to be a stick figure to make spandex look good after all.

I decided to do a little virtual Etsy shopping, pretending I was Alexis' stylist and choosing vintage pieces that would totally suit her look.  I found SO MANY fun pieces!  The shopping is the easy part...getting the balls to wear this stuff?  That's the hard part.
