Angela explains why it’s imperative to have fun with your personal style – “I would describe my personal style as my style is forever changing. I like to switch up my style daily so sometimes it’s very classic and vintage-inspired, and other times it’s full of prints and polka dots. I like to dress based on how I feel… but if I’m having a bad day, you can bet I’ll put on something colorful!”

I applied to become a style ambassador because: Ever since I first started fashion school, I realized that glasses are a huge part of me and my style; I really believe that they are a great statement about who someone is and what they are all about. I’m very passionate about making others feel amazing in their specs, too!
My glasses collection consists of _ pairs of frames: 7
My favorite fashion trend of the moment is: Playful and kitschy prints. Some of them in my closet right now are hot air balloons, flamingos and, the newest to my collection, penny farthings!
If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: The Beatles. In the time it takes to fix the elevator, we would all become best friends and send each other holiday cards every year.
My go-to drink at Starbucks is: An upside down iced caramel macchiato with skim milk.
I chose this pair of glasses because they have a really cool retro vibe to them because they have a slight cat-eye. I love anything that has vintage appeal!
Glasses are an amazing accessory because: They give you a glimpse of someone’s personality without saying a word.
The best way to organize a closet is: I really like the hanger trick, where you hang your clothing and the hook is facing the opposite way it normally would. If your hanger is still facing the opposite way six months later and the garment was untouched, donate it!
My favorite online source for style inspiration is: ModCloth’s Style Gallery. I’m browsing through there pretty much every day admiring everyone’s creative styles.
A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is to know your face shape and pick out frames that will flatter your pretty face! But even more importantly, pick out a pair of frames that you love.
Some favorite boutiques in my area are: There aren’t many in my own area, but an hour away from me near Cleveland is Re/Dress, a plus-size vintage and modern style boutique.
A social media platform or app that I can’t get enough of is: Instagram! I’m always posting snapshots of my Vespa and little Sheltie, Roni!
My current style muse is: A mashup of Mindy Kaling and Zooey Deschanel. I love Mindy’s daring and fashion forward outfits, but I also adore Zooey’s feminine and classic style.
My favorite fashion blogger is: Lauren from Someone Like You. We both are in the Kent State fashion merchandising program and I love her blog because she’s honest and adorable! Her blog actually inspired me to start my own!
Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colors, yay or nay? Yes, yes, yes! If something looks amazing on you, get it in every color without hesitation, especially for basics and shoes.
Favorite city to go shopping is: Pittsburgh, PA. They have amazing thrift stores that offer great vintage selections.
