Trolling the aisles.

"I like how everything's kind of low-key sexy," said Alexa of the floor length polka dotted skirt made cool with a high slit up the thigh. "How sick is that? Really plain and grandma but then there's the slit." (Buy the Bowery skirt in black, $195, here.)

"I have way too many navy jumpers. I just can't seem to get enough." This time around, she opts for tangerine. Buy the Lemona sweater, $95, here.

Alexa knows exactly what she likes.

She managed to squeeze these short leather shorts over her jeans for a quick try—don't hate her, but they looked really cute.

Next stop: Narnia, a vintage and consignment shop around the corner from Reformation that lives up to its name. It feels like stepping into a giant walk-in closet of play clothes. "I like the way there's lots of themes...Navajo seems to be the thing right now."

This fringed dress is totally something we could see Alexa wearing to an event.

"Yeehaw!" She joked. Sort of.

"This is very '30s. I like it."

And finally we headed to APC in SoHo, where the style star has shopped for years. "APC was the first store that I really got into," she said. "I can buy something here and it looks good forever. It's not trendy."

Alexa dances with the label's Resort 2012 collection. Shop it here.

We're obsessed with these ballet flats, too. Buy the style, from Porsellis, for $175 here.

Thanks for shopping with us, Alexa! We were certainly inspired.

"I haven't been shopping in ages!" Alexa Chung proclaimed as she slipped on a pair of leather shorts at The Reformation, a Lower East Side boutique starring lots of reworked vintage.

Chung doesn't use a stylist. "Not ever." So it was fitting that during little our shopping trip around Manhattan's Lower East Side, the model-turned-presenter-turned-fashion designer-turned-host of Lifetime's competition series 24 Hour Catwalk not only chose a gazillion pieces that perfectly matched her boy/girl aesthetic, she also styled her shopping companion, makeup artist and friend Tamah K.

From a swingy fringe dress to a satin wrap top, we think any of Chung's picks of the day could potentially be rotated into her wardrobe for that new series. (It debuted in January and features aspiring designers, who are challenged to create a ready-to-wear look in 24 hours.) "I moved to America four days before the show started," Chung explained as she flicked through the racks. "So I wear lots of what I already had..and I work with Chanel, so I wear some of that."

Click through to go shopping with the indie style star and get your hands on some of her favorite pieces of the day.
