Lauren’s gorgeous selfies caught our eye when she tagged them with #DerekCardigan and we’ve been smitten since then. She breaks the mold with makeup artists as she loves wearing her looks with bold glasses and we love that.

I applied to become a style ambassador because: I adore Coastal.com, and I’ve fallen in love with every single pair of glasses I’ve ordered.
I chose this pair of glasses because: They’re beautiful and fit my style really well! I also really love the red.
My glasses collection consists of __ pairs of frames: 7
My favorite fashion trend of the moment is: Bold, Marsala eyes, the Pantone Color of the Year. I’m smitten!
If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: Taylor Swift or The Avett Brothers.
I would describe my personal style as really a mixture of everything. Whatever is cheap and looks cute – I can go from punk to preppy in a heartbeat.
My go-to drink at Starbucks is: Iced mocha with whipped cream on top.
Glasses are an amazing accessory because: They really allow you to translate your style without relying on clothing, and being someone whose clothing style varies so much, owning a pair of frames for almost each style is a must!
The best way to organize a closet is: Once I find out, I’ll let you know. My closet looks like a tornado hit it.
A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is: Go with your gut instinct! I always find myself browsing and finding one pair that I love, but looking for hours at other pairs to make sure that those are the ones that I want! Every time, I come back to the first pair that I picked out.
My current style muse is Taylor Swift. The way her style has evolved over the years is so incredible to me, and I want to own literally every single thing that she wears.
My favorite online source for style inspiration is: Definitely Instagram. It’s where I keep up with all the new makeup and fashion trends.
Some favorite boutiques in my area are: Crossroads Boutique in Madison, Alabama, and Shoe Fly in Huntsville.
A social media platform or app that I can’t get enough of is: Instagram. It’s the only social media that I use on a regular basis, and it’s how I keep up with all my friends, favorite celebrities and makeup artists.
My favorite fashion blogger is: poorlittleitgirl, her style is impeccable and she’s so freaking cute!
Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colors, yay or nay? If it’s a staple or it’s super flattering or you’re absolutely in love with it, I say go for it!
Favorite city to go shopping is: Nashville, definitely!
