A Vintage Sales Girl By Day Has Killer Rock ’n Roll Style By Night

Loading...

Blair wears a black Victorian top from Le Grand Strip, black sequin ’90s Gianna Versace Couture pants with silver Medusa head buttons, and her favorite Saint Laurent Billy Platform Buckle Boot in black eel skin from the fall 2018 collection. She holds her mom’s black velvet and white satin dress by Loubé that she bought at Saks 5th Avenue. “My dad picked it out for her!” 

Unsurprisingly Blair’s music, with lyrics inspired by Fyodor Dostoevsky, has a dark flair. “Our sound not only depends on New York but also embodies the solitude, introspection, and darkness of New York.” When she takes the stage, her sartorial muse is, of course, the goddess of rock ‘n roll, Stevie Nicks. “There is no bigger influence to me.”

More often than not, Blair will pluck her looks straight from the racks of Le Grand Strip, like a vintage tuxedo from the ’70s or a ’60s-era mini dress. “Of course, all of my virgin ghost-white lingerie and nightgowns [are from the store] too, for when I write at night,” she adds. In a sense, Blair is the perfect Le Grand Strip customer, which is for those who truly love the history of fashion and its forgotten eras. Blair started working at Le Grand Strip about two years ago after she was introduced to the store’s owner CC McGurr through a mutual friend who booked Blair for a concert. Taken by Le Grand Strip, Blair got the job the next day. McGurr was taken with Blair. “Alex has a radiant energy and bewitching style,” says McGurr. “I like to tell her, ‘Alex take it to the limit!’” To this day, the two seem as if they are joined at the hip, eating together, smoking together, and selling together.

Blair wears a “’90s does ’60s” black and white dress bought from Etsy and a leather boot by By Far. Le Grand Strip owner CC McGurr wears a vintage Chanel tweed jacket, a vintage dice dress, and a rhinestone “Boss” pin. 

While Blair does get glances at her outré looks, she embraces them. “I was in the grocery store in Connecticut and these two kids came up to me and were like, ‘Why do you look like that? Why do you dress like that?’ I was like, ‘This is how I feel.’” says Blair. “You are the most respected when you are the most self-aware, and then, you are the most free.”
