Having been a glasses wearer since the age of 6, Stephanie has had years to come across the ideal glasses style for herself and she has – thick rimmed frames. Get to know Stephanie with the interview below and learn how she, even in a small college town, manages to have her closet full of the latest styles.


Meet Stephanie

Name & Nickname: Stephanie Huang | Stephie


Home base: Los Angeles, CA

I applied to become a style ambassador because: I’ve been a glasses-wearer since the second grade and cannot recognize a face without a good pair of glasses or contact lenses. I also think glasses act as an unconventional accessory – I love the variety of brands that Clearly carries!

I chose this pair of glasses for my style ambassador starter kit because: I adore a good substantial and dark frame, and this Balenciaga pair works well with the color palette of my wardrobe. The tortoiseshell/havana effect also adds an interesting texture that differentiates this pair from all the other thick-rimmed pairs out there.

My glasses collection consists of ___ pairs of frames: 3 – all of which are thick-rimmed!

My favorite fashion trend of the moment is: Outwear in extremely long lengths, Kenzo’s eye motifs, distressed denim.

If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: Most likely someone who already died – AKA someone like Wilde, Bukowski, or McQueen.

I would describe my personal style as: Casual with a juxtaposition of hard and soft, gritty and put-together.

My go-to drink at Starbucks is: Probably a soy green tea latte or soy chai.

Glasses are an amazing accessory because: They give unexpected character to your getup.

The best way to organize a closet is: Whittling out what you don’t need – being a college student with a lack of closet space has really allowed me to understand the importance of using space pragmatically.

A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is: Look for what flatters your face (everyone says this), but it’s true, it’s kind of obligatory, like looking for a shoe that actually fits.

My current style muse is: Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea

My favorite online source for style inspiration is: Tumblr – anywhere photo-heavy, really. Not just photos of style, but architecture, minimalism, and cities as well.

Some favorite boutiques in my area are: Online shopping trumps in-store shopping for me – I also happen to live in a tiny college town that is a part of L.A. County, so there’s not much to see.

A social media platform or app that I can’t get enough of is: Instagram – who can?

My favorite fashion blogger is: Can’t choose just one.

Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colors, yay or nay? Depends on what it is – but a definite yay if it’s a cut you love, e.g. in a t-shirt or a pair of jeans.

Favorite city to go shopping is: New York, of course – good vintage is a part of the equation.
