We spotted Jade when she used the hashtag #DerekCardigan on several of her Instagram pictures and we knew we had a perfect style ambassador on our hands! A fan of ours from the get-go, Jade has such a great, bubbly personality and we were more than excited to work with her.
Name: Jade Dallas
Home base: Abbotsford, BC
Current occupation: Preschool Teacher
I applied to become a style ambassador because: I love fashion and glasses — I was also contacted to apply. I thought it would be fun!
I chose this pair of glasses for my starter kit because: I had my eye on them for a while already, I’ve been mildly obsessed with Ray-Ban clubmasters and I thought the Derek Cardigan 7010 was a really cool look alike style (and I love that they’re available in tortoise shell).
My glasses collection consists of: 3 pairs of frames. All Derek Cardigan, I have the 7012 black fade, 7014 Brown Tortoiseshell and my newest pair my 7010 Tortoiseshell.
My favorite fashion trend of the moment is: high-waisted pants! I just love everything about them.
If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: probably a person with emergency training because I would be freaking out. Haha
I would describe my personal style as casual & effortless.
My go-to drink at Starbucks is: Always changing, for the warm weather my current go-to is a hazelnut frappe with a shot of espresso poured on top.
Glasses are an amazing accessory because: I feel like they can add so much to an outfit without being over bearing. I feel like they also can reflect your personality etc.
The best way to organize a closet is: By type of clothing; by this I mean sleeveless, short sleeve, long sleeve, sweaters etc. This works best (for me, anyways) because when I’m searching for the perfect shirt to wear all of my clothes that are alike are grouped together.
A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is: Knowing your face shape and size, I would say a lot of people make the mistake of having frames way to big or small for their faces.
My favorite online source for style inspiration is: Instagram, there are so many people out there with amazing style!
Some favorite boutiques in my area are: Spruce Collective (sadly there aren’t many in my area!)
A social media platform or app that I can’t get enough of is: Instagram for sure, it’s simple but that’s what I love about it.
Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colors, yay or nay? Depends on what it is. For myself if I find a basic shirt that fits perfectly I would buy multiples simply because they’re hard to come by!
