If you love Lana Del Ray and would like to be stuck in an elevator with Marshawn Lynch, you need to meet Amanda. She is our newest style ambassador with a laid-back look that matches her attitude and glasses style!
Name: Amanda Reyes
Nickname: Manda or Mandy, but only my close friends or relatives refer to me as that.
Home base: Bay Area, CA
Current occupation: Free spirit, Student
I applied to become a style ambassador because: I mean why not!? When I was asked to be a part of the program I was stoked because Coastal.com has taken care of my optical issues in the past and made it such a breeze for me. So of course I said yes! It’s pretty sweet. I appreciate you Coastal.com!
I chose this pair of glasses for my starter kit because: I wanted a pair that had cat eye frames since I already have circular ones. I am someone who enjoys variety, and when I saw the good reviews for these it was a wrap!
My glasses collection consists of _ pairs of frames: 2!
My favorite fashion trend of the moment is: Birkenstocks! A lot of people are against it, but I’ve never been one to care about what others think. As long as I’m comfortable that’s all that matters!
If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: Seattle Seahawks running back, Marshawn Lynch. I love football and I love watching his highlights/silly videos on Youtube. We’d probably crack jokes and rap to Bay Area music for fun since he’s from Oakland and actually understands the slang!
I would describe my personal style as a girly tomboy? I mean I live in t-shirts and distressed boyfriend jeans all year long. I also own tons of sneakers and boots. I just like to feminize my outfits with lot’s of dainty jewelry and a cute side bag.
My go-to drink at Starbucks is: So I have two go-to drinks depending on my mood: 1. Vanilla Macchiato with soy milk 2. Green tea frapp with soymilk and caramel drizzle.
Glasses are an amazing accessory because: They help accentuate your eyes and face shape.
The best way to organize a closet is: By season, garment, and color.
My current style muse is: Lana Del Rey! Her style is very vintage and feminine when she’s performing or when photographed for her editorials. Yet, when she’s just out and about she’s super casual. Like a Yankees baseball cap, white t-shirt, and denim shorts type of casual. I am just obsessed with her it’s kind of a problem!
Stick to the frames that best suits your face shape. Once you find that shape, the selection process is much easier.
My favorite online source for style inspiration is: May sound cliche, but Tumblr it is! There’s just so much that Tumblr has to offer in terms of traveling, books, fashion, food, hilarious gifs/memes, and cute little sappy stuff.
Some favorite boutiques in my area are: I don’t shop at boutiques, but you can definitely find me at the thrift store sifting through the bountiful racks of denim and men’s t-shirts.
A social media platform or app that I can’t get enough of is: Definitely Spotify. I can’t live without my music.
My favorite fashion blogger is: I still have yet to discover them!
Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colors, yay or nay? Definitely yay! Especially for basic tee’s.
Favorite city to go shopping is: Venice will always be my favorite place for jewelry, band tees, & little trinkets!
