We immediately fell in love when we were introduced to local fashionista Gabriella Bergsten and her eccentric eye frames! Read more about Gabriella below.
Hi there! Tell us your name.
What’s your Instagram handle?
How would you describe your personal style?
I think the word “mélange” is probably the best. Some days it is an ultra feminine skirt and blouse, other days it is black skinny jeans and a blazer, and other days it will be a gold leather coat over a jumpsuit.
Where do you get style inspiration from?
I love seeing when the fashion houses have their new collections. Street style blogs can also be very inspiring.
What fashion trend do you hope comes back?
I love how people in the late 50’s and early 60’s really put a lot of effort into pulling an outfit together. Not that people don’t necessarily do that these days, but seeing someone go through the effort of getting a suit on point, or a pant/skirt/ shoe/ shirt combo just so- vs just going out in yoga pants, that is a trend I would love to see. People dressing up like they have somewhere to go, even when it is “just” the grocery store, etc. Clothes are so much fun.
How do you incorporate glasses into your wardrobe?
All day. Everyday. I actually need my glasses to see. I don’t wear contacts ever, because then I probably couldn’t justify having as many frames as I do. When I try on an outfit, I will probably have at least 2 or 3 pairs that I will try it with. And if I think I am favoring a pair of glasses too heavily, I will switch it up.
What about incorporating your hair and makeup with the style of your glasses?
I’m not one for a lot of eye make-up, when I do, it’s a simple black eye-liner and mascara. I think the classic look always compliments any type of frame. I keep the dramatic look for my lips. I tend to favor a bold lip (pink or red), depending on the outfit. Likewise with hair, depending on how I’m feeling, I’ll either wear it up or down, to showcase the frames, the outfit, or probably my general mood. I’m very low-maintenance when it comes to hair/make-up though.
How many pairs of glasses/sunglasses do you own?
I believe I have 9 pairs at last count.
