To Vogue or Bust: Curated Collection

Derek-Cardigan-Glasses-7012-Brown-Tortoiseshell-5

Blogger Alexandra Grant wasn’t far into the law school enrollment process before she realized it wasn’t the right path for her. A few days after her 23rd birthday, she decided she would rather pursue her passion in life, and so began To Vogue or Bust. Following her daily life, To Vogue or Bust focuses on daily style posts, musings and beauty tips. Not happy with just the one job, 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.

Because she was already a fan of Clearlycontacts.co.nz, we were eager to hear from her about her favourite glasses shapes and styles and how she interchanges them based on her look of the day.

Vintage-Inspired


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.


Striated Classic


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).


Colour Pop


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 colorful dress. A thrown together stack of bracelets and loose hair gives the purple pairing just enough of a casual vibe.

Alexandra Grant quite often accessorizes with these Derek Cardigan Sun 7003 Black sunglasses. This classic Retro-Wingtip style is updated in a thinner, more modern design in glossy black acetate. For a prescription option shop Derek Cardigan 7003 Black glasses frames (or any of our frames), input your Rx and add sunglasses tinting in gray or brown for your own customized pair of sunglasses.
