Name: Sabrina Fenster
Current occupation: Social Media Strategist & Content Marketer
I applied to become a style ambassador because personal style is such an amazing way to express your individuality and I want to share this with others.
My glasses collection consists of ___ pairs of frames. Two
I chose these frames because: They remind me of a pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses I own and love. These frames also reflect the chameleon in me; the tortoiseshell is classic, while the purple detail adds a little interest.
My favourite fashion trend of the moment is: Anything that incorporates fashion and function. While it’s not a revolutionary trend, it’s one I rarely tire of. There’s something sexy about a girl who looks great without trying too hard.
A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is to first find the right shape to frame your face, and then narrow down based on what suits your life and personal style.
I would describe my personal style as: Feminine with an edge, but if you catch me in my off-duty moments, you will find me in a leather jacket, skinny jeans, and a pair of Converse or ankle boots. While I love a simple colour palette and aesthetic, I tend to reach for more colourful and feminine pieces when I go out. My feminine pieces normally have an edgier vibe though; a pastel pink jacket will have a cropped biker silhouette, a lace skirt will have peekaboo details, a blouse will have a ballerina shape.
Glasses are an amazing accessory because they frame your face and can be the centerpiece of your entire look.
My current style muse is: Alexa Chung
My favourite online source for style inspiration is: Instagram
My go-to drink at Starbucks is: Tazo green tea with steamed lemonade and honey. It’s the best-kept secret at Starbucks!
The best way to organize a closet is: To figure out how you use your wardrobe and then find a storage solution that fits the dynamics of it. It shouldn’t be the other way around.
A social media platform or app that I can’t get enough of is Flipagram! It’s so fun for making collages.
If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller. Her quirky sense of humour would have me in tears of laughter the whole time so it would be a guaranteed good time.
Some favourite boutiques in my area are:: One Of A Few, OAK + FORT, Misch, High Street Fashion, Woo To See You.
My favourite fashion blogger is: Too difficult to choose just one! As a local street style blogger, I’m always interested in Vancouver talent and ToBruck Ave. has been catching my eye lately. I love her edgy laid-back vibe.
Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colours, yay or nay? If the cut and silhouette are amazing and you know you will get a lot of mileage out of the pieces, I say go for it!
Favorite city to go shopping is: Montreal ♡
