Fashion blogger, Alexandra Grant, shares her personal style must-haves and beauty tips on her popular daily blog, To Vogue or Bust. To Vogue or Bust was born when Alexandra’s vision of becoming a lawyer was outshined by a love of fashion. 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.
As a glasses wearer and fan of ClearlyContacts.ca, we were overjoyed to have Alexandra handpick her favourite frames from our site, and explain why she loves each and every style!
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 colourful dress. A thrown together stack of bracelets and loose hair gives the purple pairing just enough of a casual vibe.
