“As a designer, I see fashion and beauty as design elements. Contrast, color, size, proportion are all used to accent and enhance my outfits. I started blogging for Barbara Ann Style Blog about 1.5 years ago and feel in love with the conversations being created around fashion and its relationship with so many other aspects of life.”

My glasses collection consists of ___ pairs of frames: 3
Glasses are an amazing accessory because: they can add personality and sophistication to any look.
I chose this pair of glasses because I’ve been dying for a pair of cat-eyed frames. I think this bold look is perfect to make my eyes the focus point of any outfit.
I applied to become a style ambassador because: I feel that glasses can be an essential part of an outfit, and it’s so fun to play them up!
A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is: Go with your gut.
Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colors, yay or nay? Not for me, but there are a few exceptions, like perfect shirts and comfortable pumps that I break the rule for.
My favorite fashion trend of the moment is print on print.
The best way to organize a closet is: I live in a tiny apartment so space is very limited. I keep two seasons in my closet at a time, and then I organize by color and commodity.
My favorite online source for style inspiration is: Vogue, Fashion Magazine, WhoWhatWear.com
I would describe my personal style as: Anything goes. Some days my style is very feminine and vintage influenced while other days I feel my look is much more preppy and print-happy.
If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: My husband, Trevor, so we could sing Les Miserables to calm down.
A social media platform or app that I can’t get enough of is: Instagram – take my phone away from me!
My current style muse is: Taylor Tomasi Hill – carefree cool, but always caring.
Favorite city to go shopping is: I love shopping in London, England, but am insanely successful when shopping in Miami.
