We touched based with the Perth-based blogger about effortless style, her collection of frames and obsession with slip-on shoes!
And remember, if Charmaine’s your favourite blogger – you can vote for her this Friday to be in for the chance of winning free sunglasses!
Name & Nickname: Charmaine, or ‘Chow’ for short.
Home base: Perth, Australia
Current occupation: Law student (working a part time job to fund my addiction to clothes)
What inspires me: At the moment? Minimalism, simple/classic pieces and looks, leather pieces and white on white.
Sunglasses Style: Yves Saint Laurent 2330S 807 JD in Black
A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is that it’s all about the face shape!
My glasses collection consists of 3 pairs of frames: Ray-Bans, Celines and Chloes; but I’m only really attached to one pair.
I chose the pair of glasses I’m wearing because: The wide frame and lenses are reminiscent of the Celine Audreys, which I just love.

My favourite online source for style inspiration is: Definitely Tumblr; it’s often moody and eclectic (just like me hah).
Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colours, yay or nay? In cases where the piece is classic, definitely yay. I’m currently contemplating buying the Proenza Schouler PS11 in brown, and I already have it in black…
My favourite fashion trend of the moment is: Slip on shoes (I have four pairs of Celine slip ons!) Although I will still love this look regardless of whether it is a trend or not.
If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: My partner Nick, as he is the only one who would put up with my crazy babbling, or Jesse Eisenberg (awesome actor and he’s pretty adorable too).
I would describe my personal style as: Hobo-esque.
My current style muse is: Other style bloggers, in particular India Rose and mija.
Favourite city to go shopping is: New York, hands down.
Final word: It’s too cold to think properly!
