Current occupation: Actress, Model, Dancer & Artist
My glasses collection consists of ___ pairs of frames: I have 3 pairs! I usually wear contacts as I dance, so glasses are sometimes hard to rock. But thanks to more stylish frames I wear them more often.
I applied to become a style ambassador because: Fashion is my passion. It’s most definitely an art form and something that allows everyone to express themselves as individuals.
I chose this pair of glasses because they’re very classic Hollywood & have my favorite color on the inside. I am always told I have a cat eye, so these frames really stood out to me.
Glasses are an amazing accessory because: They’ve finally become something that people don’t mind rocking now. Those who don’t need them are wearing them. It’s amazing how far fashion has come and how open everyone is to different looks and ideas. They really transform someones face.
A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is: If you look at your reflection you should first see your eyes, and not just the frames. Color is fun to play around with as well!
Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colors, yay or nay? Oh hell yea! If you find something you really love you may never find it again!
My favorite fashion trend of the moment is: I love all the exotic patterns & leggings! Though typically I try not to follow too many trends, I just go into a store and pick what stands out to me.
The best way to organize a closet is by type of clothing. Mine goes sweaters, tops, dresses by length. I always pull out the more bright things so it looks pretty at all times. Then all my shoes by type underneath. I also have a tower that holds all my accessories like purses, gloves and scarfs. All artistically placed!
I would describe my personal style as: Exotic. Street but feminine. Hip hop hippie.
My favorite online source for style inspiration is: Instagram or Pinterest
If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: Besides my man (rapper Lush One), it would probably be Beyonce or Rihanna. Beyonce to pick her brains about her business savvy & Rihanna to talk about hip hop and fashion.
A social media platform or app that I can’t get enough of is: Twitter & Instagram. I love Vine for a good laugh though.
My current style muse is: I always admire old Hollywood glamor and the 90’s supermodels. I love Rihanna’s fearless style. I love how Ciara dresses nowadays – super high fashion.
Favorite city to go shopping is: I love NYC – especially the department stores and Soho! Also California for the laid back street style.
