ALEXANDRA SPENCER

Alexandra Spencer is not your average blogger. This girl oozes sex, style and sophistication and in just a few short years she has managed to turn her blog 4th and Bleeker from a boredom project into a lucrative business venture with clients such as Louis Vuitton, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, The Viceroy hotel and J Brand.

Where most run-of-the-mill personal style bloggers deem the suburban street as a suitable back drop and post exorbitant amounts of unnecessary images, Spencer cleverly set herself apart from the begining with her editorialised point of view, tight edit and effortless unique style. To say she has a particular kind of je ne sais quoi is an understatement.

Her power lies not only in the images she creates but also in her lifestyle and identity as a brand. The 4th and Bleeker girl travels the world, shops not only at Givenchy and Balenciaga but also at Topshop and Zara. She is at home in New York or by the beach in Rio De Janeiro and hangs with the obligatory cool kids in every town. She has managed to create a brand with an allure that it is both attainable and out of reach at the same time, always leaving her readers wanting more. Spencer is a blogging force to be reckoned with and if the last few years are anything to go by the future looks bright on 4th and Bleeker.

    1. It's a street corner in Noho Manhattan, 4th Avenue and Bleeker Street.

      Delete
    2. Except "Bleecker" is misspelled. So it's not really a street corner (and it's also not NoHo—it's the West Village.

  26. Oh my, I am in heaven! I've only just discovered your blog and I am obsessed :-) I guess until now I have lived in a cave...
    Your photos are incredible and so fresh compared to all these bore-me-to-death street style pics that dominate most blogs. Gosh, I will have to spend the next few days going through all of your past posts!
    Excellent work, girl - cannot wait for more!

  31. Its these kind of pretentious people who are obviously to cool to care but casually have to mention that they shop there and there... Someone with real style, integrity and personality would not have to beat on about it....

  32. Great musicians are born with music inside of them. Music is one of the parts. Like ribs, kidneys, or heart. Like blood that flows within.
