A microcosm of style inspiration, chic renditions of runway-relevant looks, and bounties of lifestyle musings is what you’ll find when entering Xenia van der Woodsen’s blog, Xenia Overdose. With 1 million followers on Instagram tracing her movements across the globe, she is no stranger to the limelight. Matching that phenomenal following with glossy, front-cover-worthy fashion photography, Xenia’s cool-girl style is palpable.
Hence why, today, we’re listing just a few of the reasons why Xenia is a firm favourite in our fashion files…
1. Her boots are made for walkin’
Perhaps the most simultaneously outlandish and impressive accessory that features on Xenia’s Insta is the statement boot. We’re talking fuchsia ankle boots, retro disco numbers, patent leather options, and brocade knee-high wildcards – each demanding our gaze when doing the once-over of Xenia’s outfits. Just take a tour of the ‘gram for yourself…
2. You’ve gotta watch her YouTube Channel
Running in stilettos to fashion shows and clambering through costume changes in the backseats of cars – Xenia’s YouTube channel allows us a behind-the-scenes gawk at her style warpath via vlog instalments. They’re hilarious, stylish (of course), and insanely addictive. Hit play already.3. She’s fuelling our 2018 winter wardrobe goals
With the seasonal shift in full swing Down Under, we’re retrieving our style forecast from Xenia. Her wintry styling sessions have been tried and tested on the rainy streets of the fashion capitals, and they’re forming a veritable mood board for our dressing to come. Think furs, corduroy and bell sleeves in reams of autumnal colours.4. She’s just spent six weeks Fashion Week hopping and it was dynamite
Xenia’s runway-ready looks from her latest fashion trajectory stole our heart. At each sojourn, we saw a whimsical lineup of outfits made to wear. She reflected on the whirlwind experience in a recent Insta upload: “Finished 6 fashion weeks (Berlin, Copenhagen, New York, London, Milan, Paris and a project in Milan) and I’m the happiest little nugget…”5. Xenia’s posse emanates good style
Wherever this gal goes, she’s surrounded by a cocoon of fellow style icons (usually followed by a league of eager street style photographers and paparazzi). Here, she takes strides with infamous writer and stylist Anna Rosa Vitiello at her hip. Now that’s a dynamic duo.
