I applied to become a style ambassador because: I like the selection at ClearlyContacts.ca and wear glasses myself. I love switching up my look with a different pair of glasses and since they have become so trendy, you don’t even need a prescription to wear them if you really wanted to.
I chose this pair of glasses for my style ambassador starter kit because: I have been wanting to add a pair of prescription cat-eyes to my collection. I recently started wearing plastic frames – I was a metal frame lover for many years – and these make a bold statement while being very chic at the same time.
My glasses collection consists of ___ pairs of frames: 5
My favorite fashion trend of the moment is: I’m a sucker for heels with a prominant strap, something I was turned onto last Spring. It’s still going strong and while the majority of my shoes like this have been stored on display until the snow melts, I recently acquired a few more pairs for when it does!
If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: Beyoncé; she is clearly someone who thinks big and works hard.
I would describe my personal style as: Girly with an edge.
My go-to drink at Starbucks is: Grande peppermint tea in a venti cup. If I want to splurge though, which is rare, Tazo Chai latte, extra hot with six pumps.
Glasses are an amazing accessory because: You can easily switch up your look and also you look cute in bed at night when the day’s make-up is washed away.
The best way to organize a closet is: By type of item and then by color.
A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is: Figure out what your face shape is by looking in the mirror and tracing your face with an eyeliner pencil. From there, choose a frame that compliments that shape. For instance, I have a angular, somewhat heart-shaped face so cat eye and rectangular frames look best on me. If you have a softer shape choose an oval frame and square faces can pull of stronger lines.
Some favorite boutiques in my area are: I love Zara, despite it not being a boutique.
A social media platform or app that I can’t get enough of is: YouTube; I don’t have a TV so YouTube is that for me.
My favorite fashion blogger is: Alicia Lund of Cheetah is the New Black.
Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colors, yay or nay? Guilty (yay).
Favorite city to go shopping is: Montreal
