I applied to become a style ambassador because: I love this company! The idea that I get to style and photograph myself in some super stylish frames is amazing!
I would describe my personal style as: Black! I find it hard to stick with just one particular style. I tend to buy a lot of basic black items and pair them with vintage and retro-inspired pieces.
My glasses collection consists of __ pairs of frames: I have 7 pairs… all Derek Cardigan!
If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: My boyfriend Kyle and our 3 puppies and a jumbo bag of potato chips… is that allowed?
Glasses are an amazing accessory because: They add a hint of sophistication to any look and are also good for quick, makeup-free days.
I chose this pair of glasses because I love how the bold fuchsia to add a pop of color to a monochromatic outfit. Plus, they’re Derek Cardigan!
The best way to organize a closet is: By clothing type. I tend to keep all of my dresses and skirts on one side, and sweaters and tees on the other.
A tip to picking out the perfect pair of frames is: Go bold or go home! I realize this may not be good advice for everyone but if you’re merely wearing frames as a fashion accessory like myself, I say go wild with color, prints and shapes!
My favorite fashion trend of the moment is: Large, elaborate statement necklaces paired with vintage tees.
Some favorite boutiques in my area are: Nouvelle Nouvelle, USED, and Oak+Fort.
My favorite online source for style inspiration is: LOOKBOOK.nu – I always find myself browsing through the latest postings to get ideas and inspiration for items I currently own and items I need to own!
My favorite fashion blogger is: Luanna P. of le-happy.com. I love her edgy, effortless outfit posts and her recognizable style.
Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colors, yay or nay?: ALWAYS. But generally in different shades of black, grey, white. If it fits great, why not?
Favorite city to go shopping is: Portland because there’s no sales tax… haha! I also go to Las Vegas quite often – not to party, but to shop!
