I applied to become a style ambassador because: I believe every single thing that you wear should work together as pieces of a final picture, from top to toe. I live to be creative and have fun with my own sense of style – it’s a great form of self expression.
I chose this pair of glasses for my Style Ambassador starter kit because: I love the drama of the black cat-eye frames and how they bring out the vintage geek-chic in me.
My glasses collection consists of ___ pairs of frames: 2
My favorite fashion trend of the moment is: Metallics & fur
If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: Diana Vreeland – I could listen to her descriptive adventures of fashion and life for eternity!
I would describe my personal style as: Elegant, bold, chic.
My go-to drink at Starbucks is: Chai Tea Latte – Xtra Xtra Hot
Glasses are an amazing accessory because: Besides for framing the face, they can complete the look you’re after, add personality and they come in so many fun colors, shapes and patterns.
The best way to organize a closet is: Separate all your skirts, blouses, blazers, pants etc. into sections. Maintain a seasonal wardrobe so you aren’t cluttered with items you won’t be wearing for 6 months or so. Keep coats in a separate wardrobe. Detox your wardrobe every year – if you haven’t worn an item for more than a year, give it to charity. And lastly, make sure it’s wardrobe consisting of fun & colorful items that you look forward to wearing every day!
A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is: If choosing plastic frames, make sure to select a color from your seasonal palette. if it’s your first pair of plastic frames,opt for colors such as black, grey, taupe or tortoise shell and even navy that should work well with most colors in your wardrobe.

Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colors, yay or nay? Hell yay! If it fits and makes you look and feel great then stick with it! Heck, I’ve even bought two pairs of the same red heels because they are so fab and I’m still glad I did!
