Name & Nickname: Ellen Jefferys/Ell/Ezza
Home base: Adelaide
Current occupation: Personal Assistant
What inspires me: Admittedly, my Instagram feed. Music, festivals & art. People with an open mind and an optimistic look on life, girls with confidence in themselves, in all aspects! It’s rare these days.
My glasses collection consists of: This is my first ever pair of actual glasses! I own about 15 pairs of sunglasses though.
I chose the pair of glasses I’m wearing because: They’re unique and fun, but still sophisticated. I haven’t seen them on anyone I know before.
A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is: Pick glasses that YOU like! It’s your face after all, so if you think they look good – wear them and work them! (Face shape, eye colour and skin colour should always come into play though).
Glasses are an important part of your outfit because: They can really polish off a look, I often find myself looking twice at people with a really nice pair of glasses that are eye-catching and fresh. Glasses can have a lot of personality.
Frame Style: Derek Cardigan 7004 in Birch

My favourite online source for style inspiration is: Every amazing blog or website I find is always through Instagram, so I’m going to have to say Instagram. I really like howtwolive.com, two girls from Melbourne with amazing style.
My favourite fashion trend of the moment is: Anything white, grey, pastel pink or blue! Loving fresh and clean looks for entering the warmer months.
If I could go on holiday with anyone in the world, it would be: Would it be cheesy to say my boyfriend? Beyonce & Jay-Z would be pretty amazing too, I can’t imagine you’d go without any luxuries travelling with those two!
I would describe my personal style as: Constantly changing! I love bohemian & vintage looks, but I also often opt for minimalist and classic styles as I think you can never go wrong if they are done well.
My current style muse is: Lara Bingle! Everything about her look is effortless, simple, high-end and natural.
Favourite city to go shopping is: I am yet to find this one out! Some day.
Final Word: Be honest, humble and kind, always. And don’t take life too seriously.
