Glasses are a part of my everyday life and I change them daily according to my mood and outfit. I also own a lot of square-shaped glasses, so I decided to get out of my comfort zone by updating my look with a pair of cat eye frames. I was hesitant at first, but don’t regret it one bit because I’ve been receiving compliments every time I wear them!
Home base: Toronto, Canada
Current occupation: Social Media Manager
My glasses collection consists of ___ pairs of frames: Five pairs of prescription glasses and five pairs of sunglasses.
A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is to measure your current pair of glasses so you can picture how the pair online would look on you. I usually measure my largest pair – Derek Cardigan 7014. I filter out everything bigger than that because they’re the biggest size I would wear.
My favourite online source for style inspiration is: Instagram and Pinterest. I usually save images from those sites for inspiration.
My current style muse is: Miranda Kerr when she’s off-duty. I want her entire closet!
The best way to organize a closet is: By type and by colour. For example, I put all of my sweaters together and hang them from dark to light.
Some favourite boutiques in my area are: Can I name food places? I like Butter Avenue for macarons and Sansotei (both in Toronto) for a delicious bowl of ramen.
Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colours, yay or nay? Totally yay! If you really love it and know you can work it into your outfits multiple times, why not? I find myself buying “back ups” of certain things too, especially when they’re on sale.
I would describe my personal style as classic with a trendy twist. I try building my wardrobe with classic pieces while adding in a couple of trendy items once in a while.
My favourite fashion trend of the moment is: I’ve really been into natural looking makeup lately. Just let your glasses do the talking!
My favourite fashion blogger is: I don’t really have one at the moment. I follow too many and I enjoy reading all of their blogs.
If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: Anyone who wouldn’t mind playing a game to kill time. I occasionally carry a deck of cards (Uno, Monopoly Deal, etc.) in my bag.
Glasses are an amazing accessory because a great pair can accentuate your eye makeup or even hide the fact that you have no makeup on at all!
A social media platform or app that I can’t get enough of is: I love them all for different reasons! I work in social media and marketing, so I’m a little biased. Twitter is my favorite place to stay up-to-date on news and Pinterest is where I get style, food, home, and wedding inspiration.
My favourite city to go shopping in is: I actually prefer shopping online nowadays. Food-wise, Toronto and Markham are definitely my favorite cities to find a great mix of food.
