Join us as we look behind the lens at the bloggers who styled and starred in our 2014 Fall Lookbook. From shades they can’t leave the house without to the trends they’re trying to forget, get to know our featured stylists.

Introducing Kristen of the fashion/music/beauty blog Style Wax Poetic. Inspired by the idea that fashion can be just as artistic as music or poetry, Kristen creates looks that channel her trendy-girl style.

What sunglass style personality do you best identify with and why?

Kristen: Trendsetter! I love anything outside the box.

If you had to choose one item from your closet to take with you on a deserted island, what would it be?

Kristen: A maxi dress!

What would you consider the ultimate fashion fail?

Kristen: Trying a trend that just doesn’t work for you. If everyone has done it, it already looks like you’re following the crowd, and certain trends work better for some people than they do for others. Stick with what works for you and be confident!

What is the best fashion advice you have ever received and from who?

Kristen: I usually go my own way, but I think the best advice I’ve had is visual cues from some of my blogger babes and pictures of stylish people who take risks with their looks. I know the “girl” I want to be and I quite often shift my style to reflect that!

What’s your current Internet addiction? 

Kristen: Discovering new blogs and seeing what my peers are up to — the latest I’m loving are Chapter Friday, The Stylemma, and I always love Happily Grey.

And since you have an eye for fashion — what are some of your favorite Sunglass Warehouse shades?

Kristen: I love mirrored shades aright now — these aviators are perfect!

Thank you to Kristen for taking the time to answer our questions and giving us a behind-the-scenes look at your stylish adventures!
