Blogger Alexandra Grant didn’t have to get far into the law school enrollment process to realize it wasn’t the right path for her. A few days after her 23rd birthday, she realized that she would rather follow a career driven by passion rather than a desire for a stable income. With that sudden realization To Vogue or Bust was born. Following Alexandra’s daily life, To Vogue or Bust features daily style posts, musings and beauty tips. Alexandra also works at Obakki, a fashion line and charity that donates 100% of its net proceeds toward water and education projects in developing countries.
Already a Coastal.com fan, we were excited to get her input on some of her favorite glasses shapes and styles and can be interchanged based on your look of the day.
I love these frames because they’re “just a little” everything: just a little nerdy, just a little hipster, just a little haute, just a little classic. They’re the perfect addition to a laid-back yet eclectic look for a summer weekend by the seaside.
These Joseph Marc glasses may have a thick frame, but they’re sleek and chic enough to be worn with minimal styling. I’m looking forward to wearing these all summer long with simply the most classic of pieces (other than a jolt of neon here and there, perhaps).
These purple frames have enough style statement to carry a white-tee-and-jeans combo alone, but I like to up the fun factor and pair them with an equally colorful dress. A thrown together stack of bracelets and loose hair gives the purple pairing just enough of a casual vibe.
