“Over the years my glasses have transformed from a burden to a fashion accessory, and a piece of me that speaks to other people. I wear glasses every single day, and I take pride in pushing them back up the bridge of my nose. My specs are my life, and without them I’d be naked.”

My glasses collection consists of ___ pairs of frames: 6
I applied to become a style ambassador because: I’ve been ordering from ClearlyContacts.ca for a while and thought this was a great idea. I was also hoping there would be other people out there who owned more than one pair of glasses so I wouldn’t seem crazy.
A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is: Think about your everyday style, and find a pair of glasses that will compliment your look. But don’t be afraid to get a pair of wild frames!
I chose this pair of glasses because they will work well with any outfit and the color makes them versatile, while the shape keeps them fun!
Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colors, yay or nay? Definitely, I’m a big fan of jeggings and own 3 pairs from the same store. If something gives you confidence, or is a basic piece, then definitely go for it.
My favorite fashion trend of the moment is: I don’t really have one, but I do enjoy a good hat and think people should wear them more. I also love a good lipstick.
The best way to organize a closet is: I organized mine based on what I wear the most often. And everything else is organized into types such as: pants, skirts, blouses, jackets, sweaters, etc.
I would describe my personal style as: All over the place, I dress for my mood and comfort, and it can be anywhere from girly to grungy. It usually ends up being a weird mix of everything, but it always looks composed. As long as you have confidence, you can rock whatever you wear.
Glasses are an amazing accessory because they can instantly add some sophistication or fun to your look. I wear my glasses all of the time (contacts drive me bananas), so I like having a variety for different moods and events. And the more pairs of glasses you own, the more fun it is to put together an outfit.
My favorite online source for style inspiration is: I’ve just started using Pinterest. My friends are always on it, so I figured it was worthwhile to check out.
If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: Tina Fey. We could talk about food and make inappropriate jokes the whole time. If I’m stuck in an elevator, I definitely need to be laughing and not panicking.
My friends and family barely recognize me without my glasses; they are a part of what makes me, me.
A social media platform or app that I can’t get enough of is: FlyerFlo. It’s an app that has all of the fliers of stores in a 20km radius of you. It’s a great way to save money and I love food so it works out.
My current style muse is: I admire Gwen Stefani and her ability to take risks and make her style her own.
Favorite city to go shopping is: Toronto… this makes me seem incredibly small town.
