My glasses collection consists of ___ pairs of frames: 6 pairs.
Glasses are an amazing accessory because: They are generally the first thing a person sees on you and they can compliment every outfit.
I chose this pair of glasses for my starter kit because I wanted a bold looking frame to compliment my valiant personality.
My favourite online source for style inspiration is: Other style/fashion blogs especially from bloggers in Europe and Asia — I love seeing what or how others wear things differently.
My current style muse is: Pelayo Diaz from the fashion blog, Kate Loves Me. He is undoubtedly one man who can rock a Chanel purse and still look masculine.
The best way to organize a closet is: By season, then commodity and lastly by color.
Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colours, yay or nay? Yay! I do it all the time. If I like something and it fits impeccably, I’ll buy it in every single color.
A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is to try on everything – you just may be surprised with the style you end up with!
I would describe my personal style as: classic with a modern edge.
My favourite fashion trend of the moment is: Bomber jackets. I currently adore this sporty look, especially in luxe fabrics – totally makes for an edgier sport look.
If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: Ellen Degeneres. Without a doubt, this amazing woman would have me laughing the entire time.
My favourite fashion blogger is: The two gents behind TheThreeF – Filippo Fiora & Filippo Circulli. These two are the epitome of classic European style.
A social media platform or app that I can’t get enough of is: Instagram. I’m addicted to it and can spend hours scrolling through images and double tapping on photos.
My favourite city to go shopping in is: New York City – hands down.
