With having never owned a pair of colored glasses before, Amanda admitted that she was “a little apprehensive about choosing a red pair because of my red hair and my propensity for red lipstick, but I absolutely LOVE them. The color and shape are absolutely beautiful and owning a Dolce and Gabbana item is a dream come true.” We’re over the moon to have Amanda join the Coastal.com style ambassador program along with her co-blogger Katie. Both Katie and Amanda are the red-headed masterminds behind fashion blog Junebugs and Georgia Peaches.
Name & Nickname: Amanda Lillard Colohan & Modern June Cleaver
Home base: Nashville, Tennessee
Current occupation: Legal Assistant + 2L Law School Student + Blogger (time management is my best friend!)
I would describe my personal style as a Modern June Cleaver – mixed with a little Lucille Ball and Betty Draper.
My glasses collection consists of _ pairs of frames: 6
My favorite fashion trend of the moment is: The ever-timeless Little Black Dress, of course. I love seeing the different ways people style them.
I chose this pair of glasses because: I have a older pair of baby blue cat eyes, but other than those, I’ve never worn colored frames before! I saw the ruby red and couldn’t help myself.
If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: I know my co-blogger Amelia said J.K Rowling, and that probably would’ve been my choice as well, but for variation, I’ll go with Neil Gaiman. I would love to pic his brain and have him narrate one of his books to me. Oh, Mr. Gaiman.
My go-to drink at Starbucks is: Chai Latte… mmm chai.
The best way to organize a closet is: Oh. This is my area of expertise. Stye, color and this amazing new app I found called “Dressed” that lets you input all your wardrobe pieces. Be still, my heart.
My current style muse is: I absolutely love Dita Von Teese, but I actually usually pull my style muses from the past ladies like Lucille Ball, Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor.
Always consider your face shape and how often you’ll be wearing your glasses. I also usually consider whether the pair I’m choosing that day will clash with my makeup or outfit.
My favorite online source for style inspiration is: Instagram! I follow so many ladies who have absolutely awe-inspiring style.
My favorite fashion blogger is: I get googly eyes over Dollie from The Rockabilly Socialite, she is absolutely amazing. Such a sweet lady with impeccable style.
A social media platform or app that I can’t get enough of is: Instagram. I’ll be the first to admit that I have an addiction.
Glasses are an amazing accessory because they’re a fun way to add a little something extra to an outfit! Also, I can’t see without mine.
Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colors, yay or nay? “Yay” all the way. I think I own every Jenny Skirt that Pinup Girl Clothing has put out over the last 5 years. What can I say.
Favorite city to go shopping is: I actually REALLY love shopping in Nashville but I also always have tons of fun in Atlanta, Georgia.
Some favorite boutiques in my area are: I absolutely love the The Hip Zipper for vintage, Katy K’s Ranch Dressing for vintage + reproductions and I’m also lucky enough to have a Tatyana Design (formerly Bettie Page) store in my town.
