Meet Tijana, our newest #lookambassador and blogger who is passionate about a DIY lifestyle, and is always looking to find a way to mix and match her latest style finds from local boutiques and thrift shops.
Name: Tijana Popovic
Nickname: T, TPop, Pop Tart, Big Poppa
Home base: Vancouver, BC, Canada
Current occupation: Regional Manager/Actor/Teacher
I applied to become a style ambassador because: I had seen a profile online and thought I would love to be involved with Coastal! I am a huge fan of the brand and have been ordering glasses online since the very beginning! I was already a Coastal ambassador!
I chose this pair of glasses for my starter kit because: I really like the two tone glasses and these [were] modern with a vintage feel.
My glasses collection consists of 15 pairs of frames. EEK!
My favorite fashion trend of the moment is: The Blarf or the blanket scarf! I have about 4 now! They work great as an alternative to a sweater and really make a statement.
If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: My boyfriend because he is an elevator mechanic.

Glasses are an amazing accessory because they can take any outfit to the next level! Sometimes I am wearing something simple to run errands like black pants and a denim shirt but I add my florescent pink Derek Cardigan’s and it really makes it pop!
I would describe my personal style as: Frugal Fashion, fashion on a budget that is still on trend.
My go-to drink at Starbucks is: Sorry Starbucks you’re great, but I prefer local coffee shops! I live in Kits and love Parallel 49 and Culprit Café
The best way to organize a closet is: By item and color, so my closet is light to dark, in each section, and starts at tanks on one side and ends with sweaters on the other!
The best way to find the perfect frames is not to play it safe! Pick the frames that reflect your awesome personality and style
My current style muse is: Julia Engel or Julie Sarinana
My favorite online source for style inspiration is: Instagram! I follow some real fashionistas, but then I also love the street style or what my friends are wearing!
Some favorite boutiques in my area are: I am a huge fan of buying second hand, some of my favorite boutiques in Vancouver are actually consignment shops like Timeline Boutique, Front and Co and TurnAbout on Main.
A social media platform or app that I can’t get enough of is: Do I have to pick just one? Instagram or Pinterest for sure!
My favorite fashion blogger is: I don’t think I have a favorite, I follow so many woman who have amazing style! I am inspired by them all!
Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colors, yay or nay? I usually stick to a strict budget so I have never even thought to buy multiples! But I know there are a few items I have I wish I had two of, definitely something to think of in the future.
Favorite city to go shopping is: Every city! Each city is a new adventure. I love thrift shopping, or finding cool little boutiques where you can get one of kind items, or discovering a great consignment shop, so I am happy in any city, big or small!
