When asked why she applied to become a style ambassador, Vinamae notes “… because after I purchased Derek Cardigan glasses from Coastal.com I became OBSESSED with using glasses as an additional accessory for fashion.” With a glasses collection consisting of four pairs of frames, Vinamae also has some great advice on picking out the perfect pair of frames – “Go for something you typically wouldn’t rock on an everyday basis, you’ll be surprised! I picked these Ray-Ban glasses out knowing they are quite a big frame to begin with, but I love them and get compliments left and right about them!”

My favorite fashion trend of the moment is: Floral and bohemian. I LOVE the look.

If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: Bruno Mars. He is INCREDIBLE.
The best way to organize a closet is: By color and season.
A tip to picking out the perfect pair of frames is: Go for something you typically wouldn’t rock on an everyday basis, you’ll be surprised! I picked these Ray-Ban glasses out knowing they are quite a big frame to begin with, but I love them and get compliments left and right about them!
My favorite online source for style inspiration is: Tumblr, it literally has everything you can think of as far as fashion and beauty! I’m always like “WHERE CAN I GET MY HANDS ON THAT?!”
I chose this pair of glasses because they’re bold and trendy. I thought the violet touch was perfect, and it’s not everyday you see someone walking around with amazing frames like these. And come on, they’re Ray-Bans!
Some favorite boutiques in my area are: Well, truthfully, we don’t have many fashion boutiques or anything really that I’ve been to where I live. I’m sure there are many that I don’t know of, but I just love anything with a good bargain. You can make a really cheap piece look very expensive if you know what I mean!
My favorite fashion blogger is: I’d have to say DulceCandy87. She has a great fashion blog and is so tiny and cute!
Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colors, yay or nay?: Yay! I do this all the time. If it’s comfortable you will see me buying them in every color. I do that a lot actually.
Favorite city to go shopping is: Aw, I haven’t traveled since I was a little girl! I know I’m missing out! I gotta rely on internet shopping for that.
